Hi Jennie, Thank you for a fantastic service. Eveybody enjoyed Slinky, the evening wouldn't have been the same without them. Thanks to Stuart and the gang.

 

Laura and Jonathan, Wedding Event, Derbyshire

Hi Stuart, Sorry for the delay in replying to you email. Just got back from honeymoon a few days ago. I just wanted to let you know that yes, you guys were very quick to respond and we felt that the booking process was easy and helpful. The band had an amazing sound - really friendly guys our guests loved dancing to them! Really good mix of songs. Fantastic

 

Michelle and Gerrod, Wedding Event, Cheshire

Slinky played at my wedding at Mottram Hall. They were the best! I would recommend the guys to anybody! I'm 30 next year and hopefully will have the guys again as they were very professional and I want to say huge thank you to you all for ending our wedding with the best variety of music from the 60s up till now. Along with the DJ that came with them they kept everyone dancing all night, Just fantastic! All our love.

 

Kelly and Mark, Wedding Event, Cumbria

We hired Slinky for our wedding in the Lake District and where delighted we did. They were extremely professional, set up and ready to go as soon as we arrived to the evening venue without us even knowing they had arrived. They played a great selection of songs that kept everyone happy and dancing all night, also the DJ that came with them was great too. Our guests are still talking about the 'gig' 6 months later. Very approachable bunch of lads and we would definitely recommend them to everyone and we will be using them again in future as soon as we think of an excuse for another party!

 

Holly Griffiths, Corporate, Shrewsbury

Hi Stuart, Just wanted to send you and the guys a note to thank you very much for making our night on Friday. We all had a fantastic time and everyone has been commenting on how great Slinky were, you really got the party going and played the perfect mix of music for us. I just hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. I hope you all made it home safe and sound, I was very worried about you all leaving in the heavy snow. Anyway, thank you once again and I will definitely be recommending you and hope to book you again! Kindest regards and Merry Christmas!

 

Charlie M, Wedding, Llandudno

I apologise for the delay in replying to you email. I had to take 6 weeks off after my wedding as my appendix ruptured a week after the wedding...... so lucky it did not happen on the day. Slinky were absolutely brilliant, we had lots of great comments about them and they kept the dance floor busy all night. In fact thanks to them lending us the sound system we kept everyone dancing until after 2am!! They were a good bunch of lads and receptive to my drunken father’s requests. I would definitely recommend them.

 

Chris McCarthy, 18th Birthday, Manchester

Hi Tracey, would just like to say how good Slinky were last night. We hired them last night for my sisters 18th and they blew us away. Absolutely amazing. They got everyone up, and they were so professional. I would, and have, highly recommend them to everyone I know. Thank you so much.

 

Mr N Murray, Titan Steel

Slinky were fantastic. They were so charismatic, providing visual as well as audio entertainment. They interacted with guests perfectly and played a great selection of music that had everyone dancing to the end of the night. I would highly recommend them for any occasion.

 

Mr D Abrahams, The Adelphi

What a party! Slinky read our guests perfectly and got everyone completely rocking! We were so happy with the evening they were exactly what we were after. A big THANK YOU to you and the band for making the evening of our wedding something to remember.

 

Mrs J Dawson, The Grovesnor Chester

Slinky just made our wedding evening - I can't thank you all enough. Our friends and family were so impressed with them that everyone commented on the performance they had given. A huge thanks for making it an amazing wedding party. I need to find a reason to book them again sometime soon!

 

Miss S Hughes, Scottish Power

Slinky were recommended to our firm by some colleges that had booked them previously for a summer ball. They were very professional and made every effort to work around our needs on the day. So many guests commented on how good they were. Thanks!

 

Dave Scott, The Hilton Manchester

Slinky a very professional outfit and very approachable and accommodating. They dealt with all requests that were given to them, from the chief bridesmaid announcing our first dance to introducing my Nan so she could do a speech. Afterwards they even played acoustic guitar in the bar! Slinky are highly recommended!!
