Cate, Clements Hall Wedding – 2016

“I have to thank you, as the performance you gave at our wedding was out of this world. We literally adored every second and could of asked them to continue for hours more. We couldn’t have had anything more perfect – exactly what we wished for.

The comments we have had from guests were exceptional – so I wanted to make sure you and the band know how amazing you made the night.

I can’t say thank you enough.

Also you all made Ryan’s year, him playing guitar with you. We all melted. Thank you for that – he was over the moon.

Really wish you all, all the best for the future – we’ll be keeping our eye out for where you’re playing!”

Olivia, Organiser,  North Yorkshire & East Coast Doctors Charity Ball – July 2015

Dear Keith & Kabuki,

Thank you all so much for playing at The NYEC Doctors Charity Ball. The evening could not have gone smoother and I was so thrilled that everyone was kept entertained and dancing all night! It was a pleasure to work with you in the lead up to the ball and on the night itself, when I felt able to leave things in your capable hands. All the guests gravitated to the dance floor whenever Kabuki started playing, loving the mix of old tunes and new chart hits. Gemma is an amazing singer and entertainer and she is complemented well by the tight rhythm & horn section unique to you. I had many positive comments from guests – they seemed surprised that I’d managed to find such a good band!

Ali & Geof – Papakata Tee Pee Wedding, Derbyshire, June 2015

“For Geof and I all of you were amazing, we were thrilled with the music, happy with the length of time you played, your expertise, your generosity and kindness in encouraging me to sing, please tell Gemma that she is just wonderful in so many many ways.

We just have huge praise and thanks for you all, you completely made ours and our guests evening.  We would recommend you to all who ask, we are so pleased we chose you for our special day.

Thanks too for the rock and roll at the end, everyone loved it.  I didn’t get to dance, too many goodbyes and thank you’s.

I don’t think there was anything you could have done better, it was all wonderful, huge thanks to you all.”

Jonathan & Laura – East Riddlesden Hall, April 2015

“Thanks so much to Kabuki for playing at our wedding. The songs were perfect, just what we asked for, I loved the horn lines and the rhythm section was amazing. Everyone has said what a great time they had, and some have even said it’s the best wedding they’ve been to, so a huge thanks for helping to make the day so great. As someone who loves soul music, it made such a difference to have a professional band with a warm funky sound, instead of the usual cheesy DJ playing chart hits and ‘the proclaimers’ off distorted MP3s . I think everyone was up and dancing by the second set, even my Dad! I’d recommend you to anyone, definitely worth every penny.”

Caitlin, St Vincent Support Centre – September 2014

“Really delighted that Kabuki will be playing again for us- you were so fantastic last year we are all looking forward to seeing you again in 2015!”

Simon & Dawn – Harewood House Wedding, August 2014

“We made enquiries everywhere for our band – It had to be professional – no amateurs for us and we can say this with hands on our hearts; there is simply no better package provided by any professional reputable band we enquired with AND who had Saxophone and Trumpet to boot !   Kabuki  played all we needed – and much much more for our wedding and catered for all generations.  They truly stunned our guests with their performance and ended our amazing day on such a high for everyone!

Gemma & Steve – Castle Green Hotel Wedding, Kendal, Cumbria, August 2014

“Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you and the rest of the band for an amazing night on Saturday. As you could probably tell, we all thought you were amazing – it was brilliant! You all made our night and it was definitely so memorable. Really appreciate you learning our first dance too!”

Brenda – Castle Green Hotel Wedding, Kendal, Cumbria, August 2014

“Well, what a night it was at my daughter Gemma’s wedding on the 23rd August. You were just we needed to make the night go with a bang. The fact that nobody sat down very much (apart from me and a few oldies) is a testament to your effect on the wedding party. That is exactly the sort of night Gemma and Steve wanted and you never let them down. You were very, very good and I am so glad that you agreed to come to Kendal. The saxophone player went down a treat too. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Castle Green Hotel are interested in you from what I heard the following day. I am sure Gemma and Steve will be contacting you but they are off for on honeymoon now and I just wanted to add my thanks to you all.”

Marian – 60th Birthday Party, April 2014

“I just wanted to thank you and the band for performing at my birthday party on Saturday evening. It was a fabulous event and everybody really enjoyed themselves and loved the music and was on the dance floor until the very end.”
