Rebecca Mills, Events Manager, The RDS I have no hesitation in recommending Twisted Hits for any event. They were extremely professional in all my dealings with them. They made the whole process very easy and filled me with confidence before the event even started. I was so happy with my choice - as soon as they started to play people got up and started dancing - which made me look good! Thanks to all of the band for a great night - I look forward to booking you again soon.
Kate and Richard Jone Thank you for playing our wedding. The band were brilliant and a great set list that worked perfectly for the party we had. The version of our first dance song exceeded what I had hoped for. The band were so tight musically and the singing was unbelievably good. The guests kept complimenting us on how good the band were, and we were delighted to have you there. Hope to see the band again very soon and once again – Thank you.
Joanne and Alan Groves Twisted Hits were really easy to work with. They learned my first dance song and put their twist on it which was brilliant. They were very friendly and interacted well with the crowd. I would recommend them to everybody!
Rachel and Paul McNamara We had Twisted Hits at our wedding in February and they were fantastic! From the moment I contacted Floyd I knew we were in good hands and we had made the right choice. We went to see them play before booking and saw how they got the crowd going. Before our wedding they liaised with the venue to ensure that PA, timings, space in the room were all correct, making sure it was all boxed off and one less thing for me to deal with. On the day they arrived in plenty of time and opened the show with Let’s Dance by David Bowie – this set the mood for the night. They have a huge range of songs so that all ages are covered and everybody, young and old are dancing. I have no hesitation in recommending Twisted Hits to anybody who wants a great band for their wedding.
Mike and Sarah Byrne I cannot thank you enough for making our night so special. We booked Twisted Hits for our wedding and had many conversations about the set list. We needn’t have worried – they knew exactly what they were doing and made sure to have everybody on the dance floor all night. The band were so friendly and set up in loads of time that all my worries were taken away and the night worked so well. Thank you Twisted Hits!
