So, if you’re looking for a band that will keep you on your feet all night long, Superbad is the band for you!

“We hired Superbad Soul Section for our wedding, and we were very impressed. Superbad learned new songs that we requested (lots of soul and dancey numbers), and also, a special slowed down version of The Way You Make Me Feel for our first dance, which was a lovely surprise. They sounded awesome and had us dancing all evening.”

The Hustle were spot on. Exactly what we needed in The Square at the end of the Toast Martinborough day, with festival goers dancing their hearts out to well-known covers! Great musicians, wonderful voices and very professional and easy to work with. Thank you!”

“The Satisfactions were great, they had our whole wedding party rocking and everyone has been asking who they were and saying what a fantastic night it was. From old school 1950s rock and roll to disco and 80s to the Killers, they had a great party repertoire and knew how to work the crowd. They were also just a nice bunch of guys who were super friendly to deal with – they save their rock star attitude for the stage. So many people have been saying to me that this was the best night’s dancing they’ve had since forever. Five stars from us and our guests.”
