To top it off they learnt and performed our first dance medley of songs!
Having seen SouthWest Band play and having a very varied taste of music we knew they would be the perfect band for our day and they were just that! The duo acoustic set throughout the day and the three piece band that followed in the evening really set the scene for our day. To top it off they learnt and performed our first dance medley of songs. All of our guests commented on how amazing they were and if we were to do it all again we would book them in a heartbeat ☺️ Thanks once again SouthWest and Henry for all your help with rearranging of dates (twice) due to the restrictions!

The dancefloor was full for the whole night!
These guys played at our wedding on Saturday and they couldn't have been better. They learnt our first dance song and smashed it. The dancefloor was full for the whole night, for both the dj and band sets, and we had guests of all ages. Loved it

Everyone there loved it and keeps taking about the night well after our special day has past!
Well it's been just under a month since we had our Wedding day at Hooton Pagnell Hall with the amazing Southwest Band adding that extra special touch to the proceedings. We can't recommend them highly enough from our initial contact with yourselves which involved two date changes over the covid lockdown period to the pre-big day communication on First Dance choices, music for the band to play and also for the DJ to get the place rocking to. We've got to say it wasn't just us that were amazed!! Everyone there loved it and keeps taking about the night well after our special day has past. Thank you all in the band and behind the scenes for providing such an amazing night and memories that will last us a life time. We loved every whirlwind second of it! Kind Regards - Jamie & Ruth Campbell

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

It would be unfair to answer this question. There have been countless incredible weddings through-out our career.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Energetic Confident Experienced Versatile

What about your business are you most proud of?

Coming out of the Covid 19 pandemic 2021 and performing a typical years worth of weddings in 5 months. Giving

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Choose a venue without sound or early curfew limitations, good acoustics & a good layout for a party (which is typically when everything is together in the same room).

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Arranging a bespoke version of the couples favourite song for their first dance. Seeing the joy on everyones face and the excitement when the band kicks in and the party has started.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Always a phone call. In 5 minutes you can provide the couple with so much useful information which they can use whether they decide to book the band or not. We talk through repertoire, timings, first dance, booking options, available add ons such as acoustic afternoon music, deposit and payments. Once the booking is made the couple spend the following months getting excited for their big day, choosing their favourite songs for the evening as well as a first dance (if they are having one) Closer to the time the timings are worked out, the final balance is paid and the PLI and PAT testing documents are emailed to the venue.

What makes a romantic first dance?

Choosing a song that matters to YOU. However, a lot fo people don't want a romantic first dance per-say. A great idea to have the first minute or so where it is just the couple, a guitar and voice. Then after say a verse and a chorus, a drum fill brings in the rest of the band and that is the sign for the audience to join in and begin the party.

What is your number one floor-filler?

There are many. It is probably hard to look past Mr Brightside. However we do something rather special with this in the breakdown.... you have to see us live to find out! This song has been vetoed by couples in the past but all in all it is probably the most popular indie/rock song of our generation.

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

Impossible question! Too many to choose from!

What is the soundtrack to your life?

Who writes these questions? haha
