    Apart from being ridiculously talented, getting the part started (and keeping it going!) and generally being the nicest guys around - they made our wedding day hassle free by being so professional and easy to work with. Me and my wife would 10/10 recommend!

    Booked Electric Ocean in November and had them play our wedding in February. The communication between us and the band leading up to the wedding was 1st class. Within the booking process and part of the price they asked us which song we would like for the 1st dance, and they would learn it to play live. Although we didn't have the band play our 1st dance (we wanted London grammar - nightcall. We just loved the original) they learnt another song which ment a lot to us and played it during their set. This went down so well and dare I say, We both liked it more then the original. Electric Ocean played 3 sets of 40 minutes with a dj set in between with songs that we had told the band we liked. This worked out well for us as it broke up the evening entertainment with a mix of live and recorded music. The dance floor was always full when the band played. The music that the band played was their own set list which was so good. From oasis to plan B, not a dud song. Speaking to guests who were at our wedding over the next few weeks they all commented on how good the band was. One of the bridesmaids have even booked the band for her wedding next year!. Many thanks for a memorable night Chris and amy

    I can not recommend Electric Ocean enough. From the moment I enquired, to the night of the wedding the band made the whole process effortless. On the actual night I left the songs/times of sets up to them due to their knowledge and they got it all spot on. We had a variety of ages from 3-80 year olds on the dance floor and it was jam packed from beginning to end. At the end the crowd wanted more, they were that good! We were all disappointed it had to end....sign of a cracking band! Electric Ocean thanks for making our night. You honestly are superb, 5 star, professional and a joy to listen too. I can not wait to book you again! Without you our night would have been average, you made it a night all are still talking about! I can't thank you enough!

    Electric Ocean played at our wedding party on the 29th October. Fantastic band, great song selection and performed so professionally. Friends and family commented on how great they were and some even showed interest in booking them for future events. Very accommodating leading up to the party, happy to mix our song choices into their DJ set and made regular contact before the day. We can't speak highly enough of them. Thanks so much guys.

    An amazing band. Electric Ocean played at our wedding at Godwick Barn and were absolutely fantastic in playing a whole range of tunes. We had the best party, all guests were up dancing all night (including an 86 year old nan and two Nuns)! Everyone is still raving about them! We requested some songs to be played as well as some to be included on the iPod sessions and all we're part of the sets at the times we requested. We couldn't have asked for a better band to get the party going. The chaps were exceptionally professional at every stage, from liasing with us pre-wedding, to turning up before the arranged time. The location was exceptionally tricky to find so we were delighted with their efforts to not only be on time, but early! They were discreet as they could be in their setting up and sound testing, and when it was their break they socialized with the guests. All in all we would recommend this band for any event looking for a great sounding band who can get everyone dancing.

    The band were fantastic, and everyone was commenting at how good they were! They arrived and were set up by the time the party started, and provided us with a great dj set in-between their sets. Couldn't recommend them more! Would definitely book them in the future.
