    Radio Kings Band were the most perfect addition to our wedding day! From the minute we saw them at their showcase in Newcastle we knew that they were the band for us! The enquiry and planning stages couldn’t have gone smoother – all questions and queries of ours were answered timely and put us at ease, helping to eliminate any unnecessary wedding stresses! And the band on the night were fabulous – from playing our first dance, to the live sets and even the playlists in between we couldn’t have asked for more! Would definitely recommend to add that little bit extra to your wedding!

    We used the band for a company social event, but there were comments on what a great band they would be for a wedding. They were so easy to contact and were more than happy to cater for some last minute requests. The evening went perfectly and we couldn’t have asked for more. We chose the 6 piece band which created a great atmosphere.

    We booked Radio Kings (8 piece) for our country wedding and it was one of the best decisions! They were incredible! The dancefloor was full all night with the band playing to what our guests wanted to dance to. The brass element added something a bit special to a regular band and our guests loved it. Everything from start to finish was stress-free and easy to organise. Would highly recommend.

    They were fantastic! Really discreet when setting up, did a great job with the music and had a lot of really happy guests raving about them. Loved that everyone got stuck in with the evening, some nice surprise photo booth pics and the addition to the signed set list in the card box was really sweet. Thank you so much for fantastic evening of entertainment.

    We were incredibly disappointed and horribly let down by The Radio Kings.
    We paid almost £2,500 for them to perform at our wedding, and took the time to go and view a showcase first. We were given the option to choose a singer and assured that other members of the band would be present on the evening. When we entered the venue for our evening ‘do, we were extremely disappointed and angry to see that we didn’t recognise the singer, the bass player, and a couple of others.
    During our first dance, the singer was asked to request that the crowd gathered around the dance floor which she just ignored, and as a result, ruined videos and photographs from the event for us.
    I contacted Anthony after the event to discuss our disappointments and received no response for over 8 weeks. When I contacted him again, I was fed, in my opinion, a whole host of lies regarding the lack of communication.
    I was informed that the singer had been replaced without telling us to avoid causing us any stress! The manager told us that the band had rated the evening highly, so in other words, as long as they’re happy, why should we have an issue!
    We have felt extremely let down by the changes that were made without consulting us, and most importantly, the professionalism of the management team. Be warned – you are paying for the name. The management have a huge number of ‘band members’ they choose from on the evening of your event, and in our opinion, they werent representative of the quality we were expecting.

    REPLY FROM RADIO KINGS

    Dear Rachel,
    Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback, we are very sorry you were disappointed. Thank you also to Top UK Wedding Bands for allowing us the opportunity to respond.

    As our website explains, Radio Kings Band is a small collective of highly qualified professional session musicians. We can offer an array of band sizes from a small 3 or 4pc band up to a 15pc and we have a number of excellent options when it comes to personnel working on our various functions. It is our guarrantee, that we will not cancel a booking at any stage in the unlikely scenario that a singer/musician is unable to perform (due to sickness, bereavement etc.). We will always have another musician of equal quality as a replacement. We’re proud of the efficiency of this system, and the reliability of having a close network of musicians.

    We invite clients to our live showcase events to demonstrate the quality of musicianship, the diversity of styles we offer, as well as the sound and look different band sizes. We rotate musicians and singers at these live showcases. Sometimes the singers at the showcase are available for a particular event and sometimes they’re not. It’s best to let us know preferred musical styles so that we can slot in the most suitable singer.

    It seems that the main reason for your complaint, Rachel, is that we needed to replace the singer you booked without informing you. The bass player was also replaced, and as mentioned above, we were able to call up another great player, without disrupting or cancelling the booking.

    We strive to keep our communications as clear and direct as possible, and our replies to messages, feedback and complaints, as quick as we can. Response times can also vary depending on the reply which is needed. When following up on complaints, it’s our usual practice to speak to everyone involved, and this may take more time. Summer is a very busy season for us, and we apologies again for the time it has taken us to address your issues correctly.

    In our communication leading up to this review, we explained that this all happened at the last minute and so it was decided that we’d make the replacements without causing you any extra strain. We know how stressful it can be to organise a wedding, especially in the last week or two. We have acknowledged that this was a mistake in judgement and we apologise again for this error. Transparency is very important to us for this reason, and we’re disappointed to have let you down.

    As you’ve mentioned, as a part of our quality control, we ask the musicians to rate the event from the client’s perspective. This is done for every Radio Kings Band booking. Your musicians thought that your guests had a great time and enjoyed the band. We are genuinely glad we didn’t disagree on this point in our communication with you after the event.

    We also apologised for the singer not encouraging guests to gather around the dance floor for the First Dance and we do understand your disappointment.

    In summary, we acknowledge that we did make a mistake in not informing you of the change in singer and we have learnt from this. We’d also like to reiterate that, because of the way Radio Kings Band operates, we did not need to cancel the booking because the singer needed to pull out. Instead we were able to replace the singer with another on our network and were still able to fulfil the contracted terms of booking.

    It’s rare that we receive negative feedback, Rachel, and we always strive to to give our clients the best service possible. Thank you for making this a public complaint so that others might be better informed. We we wish you and Graham the very best future together.

    Kind regards,
    Radio Kings Band

    Whole band are fab! Really detailed information prior to booking/really helpful throughout planning and perfect on the night! All our family and friends loved it, as did we! Good value for money – we almost doubled our original budget to go with Radio Kings Band and then to go for 6 piece rather than just 5 but was all worth it! More expensive than other bands out there but would definitely recommend! Every question answered in detail via phone/email! Loved it! The BEST day ever! We loved every minute of our day! Thank you!

    We booked Radio Kings for a corporate event in Newcastle and they were fantastic! Throughout the lead up to the event they were very friendly, professional, organised and quite frankly put me at ease. We had decided to go with a 5 piece band which suited our event of just over 200 people very well. The band listened to all of our wants/needs and put on a lively, fun and high quality performance! They engaged with our guests whilst on stage and had lots of people up dancing – Great band and would certainly recommend!

  8. Megan said on December 13, 2017 12:44 pm:

    AMAZING!!! We were so happy with you guys, you made our wedding perfect. Thank you so much!

  9. Sarah said on December 18, 2017 11:27 am:

    We’d like to say a big thank you for Radio Kings’ performance at our wedding on 16th September at Temple Newsom Leeds,

    It seems like an age ago now but so many people commented on how amazing you guys were – stand out moment for me was when there was a power cut and the brass took full advantage to show case their talent!

    I’ve given loads of guests your email address so hopefully you’ll get some more business.

    Radio Kings played the evening reception of our wedding in Liverpool and we couldn’t have been happier with their performance. Neil was happy to guide us with song selections ahead of the big day and the 5 piece band kept the dance floor packed throughout the evening. We would highly recommend the band for any event.

  11. Cian said on June 16, 2018 8:12 am:

    Excellent band. A 4 piece played for us on our wedding day. They worked with the venue brilliantly with the set up and were amazing on the night.

  12. Charlotte Trail said on July 31, 2018 10:16 am:

    Radiokings were an excellent addition to our day. They communicated well prior to the wedding and all my queries were answered quickly and professionally. The band on the night were fantastic and had all our guests on the dancefloor. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Many thanks!

    We first bumped into the band at a wedding fair, and were really impressed when we later went to a showcase of theirs – hearing the band live before choosing gave us loads more confidence in them, compared to just hearing snippets of songs from bands online.

    Neil, who was our main contact throughout the process, is brilliant. Professional, helpful and reassuring – just what you need when you’ve a million things to organise for your big day. Neil made us feel at ease every step of the way, and we felt we could trust him to put together an excellent set, which he absolutely did. The band operate some planning online, where you get your own webpage to put up information like song requests, logistics, contact numbers etc., and we found it really useful to have all that info in one place where we could check and change things at a glance. Neil was fantastic for keeping in contact with us, and making time for our enquiries so we never felt out of the loop.

    The Radio Kings Band were absolutely professional on the day, completing their set-up and sound checks around the other things going on, and the performance was outstanding. It was so clear that our preferences, song requests etc., had been taken into consideration, and while we didn’t select every song in the set, we felt the overall performances were a near perfect reflection of the music we and our families love – a great mix of motown, soul, pop, and indie kept everyone dancing all night.

    Lastly, the band also sorted out the music between sets. We organized our own playlists, split into sections, and the band made sure that as soon as they were finished with a set, our playlists went on. Seems a small thing, but having a good flow to the live music and playlists, and being able to leave that in the hands of the performers ensured the whole evening entertainment ran smoothly.

    We would absolutely recommend Radio Kings Band to anyone planning a big event – the planning and prep is professional, flexible and the band are happy to work around what you want to get out of the day, including where pricing is concerned. The performers at our wedding were so talented and energetic, really brought the celebrations to life, and we’ve had so many compliments on the band, we wouldn’t hesitate to get in touch with them again for another event.

    What can I say – from the moment you contact the band for a quote to advice payment everything is professional and you efficient- I got a bit frightened after listening to a horror story about a band they had that sounded terrible – I can honestly say if I had all the money in the world I would not have changed my decision to have the radio kings they are amazing and Sam who done our vocals ALL day had the most amazing voice and was amazing with my little 3 year old boy who took a shine to her – if you are thinking of getting a band please do not hesitate to have these guys – amazing !!!!

  15. Emily and Luke said on October 1, 2018 9:38 am:

    Anthony, I just wanted to send an email to say a big thank you to you and the band! You were all amazing!! The guests raved about how good the band were and I certainly had an amazing time dancing.

    Our first dance song was perfect and so much fun! We really enjoyed it and the guests did too. Thank you for also playing my special requests, my MOH loved shut up and dance! That meant a lot!

    Anyways I would certainly recommend the band to everyone! Thank you again, Anthony! The radio kings were the perfect addition to our wedding!

    We just want to thank you all for last Saturday night, it was superb.

    Asking you guys to put a Latin twist on things was a gamble as we hadn’t heard you do such a thing. But you absolutely nailed it and everybody loved it; exactly what we wanted. We also want to thank you for your awesome rendition of El Cuarto De Tula. Mine and Rachel’s highlight by a mile.

    We couldn’t recommend you guys more.
