Andy: It was the first time I’ve worked with you guys. I actually came to site and you were actually doing the full production of someone’s wedding. And it was just from the start to the end, how you dealt with it, your client, and the actual wedding itself and how… you were very caring about it and were making sure everything was on key. And it was one of those ones where you just thought, “It’s a no-brainer. Those guys definitely have to be at my wedding.”

Why Vicki was happy to admit that Andy has impeccable taste!

Here we discuss the ins and outs of how to manage a live-band company, what sort of sticky situations we all get into and how we try to deal with those, as well as how to engage with clients and knowing them on a personal level to give them a unique and wonderful musical experience during their event.

Debbie & Kyle Rosen Syon Park, London READ THE TRANSCRIPTION Debbie: We booked you without seeing you. We saw Nick do a handful of acapella, you know, backstage first-dance songs… And that was it. We hadn’t seen you. Even before our wedding, we didn’t come and see you live anywhere.

Debbie & Kyle Rosen Syon Park, London READ THE TRANSCRIPTION Debbie: One thing I’d say about Metropolis is, without a doubt, you are not setting your ways and you don’t expect the customer or your clients to mold their way around your set. You do listen, and you do take the time to understand themRead more

Mother of the Bride
Adam & Amy’s Wedding, December 2014
Louise Blouin Foundation, London

Gill: We had every aspect of the performance exactly how we wanted it. The music was soft enough for people to talk, but some people would dance during dinner, after dinner… The music was fantastic. It was a real party atmosphere, everyone was dancing. A great feeling about the evening… the guests had an amazing time, the family had a wonderful time, and more importantly the bride and bridegroom were over the moon with everything.

Video Testimonial From Adrian Pike

Wokefield Park, nr Reading
Christmas 2014

Adrian: The biggest thing, I think, lacks today in the entertainment industry, is people that listen. You listened to what we wanted… Everything you did made my life easier. To be honest, once we booked you, you listened to what I wanted and you went on and did it. And you coordinated with my other third party supplies seamlessly. Everybody’s been blown away by the event. And most importantly, my staff just wants to book you again. So that’s not bad. Better accolade for you and me.
