Of course we are going to tell you how great we are, but don’t just take our word for it – here are some of the nice things that our previous clients have said about us:

“The Players were utterly fabulous at our event at The Mansion on Friday 24th September. The breadth of playlist and quality of music and singing meant everybody was happy. Really varied set list – enough to satisfy every occasion. Plus a pleasure to deal with. Can’t recommend them enough and I am seriously hard to please. Thanks so much for making the event go with a bang guys x”

Rebecca, Birthday Party, The Mansion, Leeds, September 2021

“Thank you so much for making our evening! It’s been so much fun, you really are excellent and we’ve had a wonderful time.”

Kate, Party, York, January 2020

“From first contacting The Players, to them leaving the event they have been an absolute dream to work with and here are some examples why. They are one of our only wedding suppliers who were genuinely keen we were put first and it wasn’t just another wedding to turn up to, they invited us to see them before us paying deposits, they remembered on the day to contact us to see if we were still coming and asked us to introduce ourselves, they sent over a set list and replaced songs we didn’t like, proactively contacted the venue with PAT certificates vs coming through us as the go between and talked to us about the venue so we could prepare for what to expect with sound limitations etc. They arrived, were ready and learnt our first song. Everyone raved about how amazing the band were. We are not a group of big dancers but even the most unlikely were up on their feet. I could not recommend this group enough and will be taking trips down memory lane to see them in York. Seriously seriously amazing!”

Laura & Greg, Wedding, Yorkshire Wedding Barn, October 2018

“Absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for these guys. They kept the dance floor buzzing all night. Variety of music was fantastic. Excellent choice for a band! Thanks guys.”

Laura & Nick, Wedding, Rise Hall, East Riding, May 2018

“Had ‘The Players’ for our wedding. Absolutely brilliant and professional. Learnt our first dance song, got the crowd dancing and played some great songs. Loads better than just a DJ and would definitely recommend for any wedding/party/event for that added wow factor and atmosphere. Thank you and well done.”

Ben & Gemma, Wedding, Holiday Inn, Doncaster, July 2017

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for last Saturday. We loved it and so did out guests! You guys were perfect and did such a good job of our first dance song too! I’m excited for when I forget about all of the stress of a marquee event and decide to have the next one so we can book you guys again!”

Helen & Tom, Wedding, High Hunsley, August 2016

“We booked The Players for our wedding and we are so happy that we did! From the get go everything was really straight forward and they were so accommodating. Even some of our very last minute requests (we didn’t actually pick our first dance song until the morning of the wedding!) they were happy to oblige. Above all though they played exactly the type of music we were looking for (not too cheesy) and sounded amazing. Our guests had a fantastic time dancing the evening away – we couldn’t have hoped for anything better. If you’re looking for a band for any event, these are your guys! Thank you so much for making our day so special.”

Angela & Toby, Wedding, Hornington Manor, Bolton Percy, May 2016

“We just wanted to write and say a huge thank you for your music on Saturday night. So many people commented on how brilliant you were and who were you and how did we know you etc etc!

“We were highly delighted when they agreed to learn our first dance song and they played it brilliantly. The rest of the performance was equally as good, and everyone at our wedding commented on how good they were. First rate band which we would recommend for any event.”

Emma & Damian, Wedding, Sandburn Hall, York, September 2016

“Truly the BEST band ever and the most AMAZING people. If you are reading these reviews wondering if The Players are the band for you then let me reassure you that they are…… As a Wedding Photographer I have seen my fair share of bands but The Players were an easy pick for us, they really do know how to liven up the dance floor. We let them have free reign over what music to play and they picked some corkers. All our guests were raving over them and still are 2 months later..in fact our friends loved them so much they are also booking them for their wedding :)”

Sara & Kieran, Wedding, The Old Deanery, Ripon, May 2016
