After booking bands for the OIl Barons Ball for nearly 20 years, we’ve had some of the biggest names perform for us.
Without doubt, Madhen’s performance is one of the best we’ve ever had – they are simply dynamic, leaving the audience shouting for more!
Paul Patterson, Publicity Director Society of Petroleum Engineers.
We’ve done nothing but reminisce about the wedding since it happened and constantly talk about how incredible you guys were. When we booked you we both agreed that your performance was the thing we were most excited about on the big day and you didn’t disappoint!!
Thank you so much for making it happen—you have made an indelible impression on the best day of our lives. We can’t wait to come out and see you perform again.
Hollywood actor and Broadway Star, Stark Sands and his new wife Gemma Clarke
OK, getting married should have been the highlight of the day. But it wasn’t. Madhen were. In a world of easily-typed, gushing superlatives it is a rare pleasure to genuinely say that Martyn and the band were truly sensational. Some of our guests were from the music business and had seen a few acts in their time. They still sent me messages about how good Madhen were. They were the catalyst that got the crowd going. The right music at the right time. Cleverly put together sets. Flexibility when needed. Super stage presence from true professionals. And nice people to do business with.
What’s not to love? BOOK THEM NOW before someone who was at our wedding does.
We were delighted to book Madhen again for our clients annual awards. From enquiry through to the show they provided a first class service and responded quickly to all communications regarding the technical planning of the event. We have seldom worked with a more professional outfit and the crowd filled the dance floor on both sets! We look forward to working with Madhen again and the satisfaction guarantee that comes with them!

I would like to say thank you again for such brilliant performance on Thursday. The band made the party and you have no idea how many fabulous comments we have received. in fact some people thought you were the real Scissor Sisters! so that shows how fabulous you are. Thank you & your bandmates so much again! I am sure we will require your services in the future.
Claudia Guerrero, KPMG
My Client at Barclays was absolutely over the moon with the evening, and with all of you. They have said that you were “the best band they have ever had at an event”!
Caroline Hughes Event Production
Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for putting on such a great show—you made the party! We have received no end of favorable comments and as such we’d love to book you for next year!
Can I just say how fantastic you were—I have had numerous e-mails/telephone calls about how amazing you were—you made the party! I’m sure our paths will cross again!”
We have booked So 80s twice, once for a corporate function with clients and once for our summer party. On both occasions they excelled themselves.You can tell they’re professional musicians as the performance was outstanding. Great songs, great dancing, great outfits and all done with huge enthusiasm. They are a perfect tribute to the 80s with every song sounding like the original artist. They are incredibly friendly people to work with, arrived on time and were completely undemanding in their requirements. I would book them again without hesitation.
Sara Pennant, Marketing & Communications Manager,Cohn & Wolfe
Just wanted to extend a massive thank you to you and the guys for a fantastic gig in Budapest. You went down a storm and the great feedback has been flooding in. Glad you enjoyed the experience of playing at the opera house, we’re going to have to pull out all the stops to beat that next year! I’ll certainly be in touch, it’s been a pleasure to work with you.
Kate Joyce, Business Support Manager, RBS
I wanted to write and thank you all for making our wedding party such an amazing do. Chris and I first saw you perform at the “Music and Lyrics” premiere in London a few years back and we thought you were brilliant then but you blew me away at our wedding on the 27th, I just can’t thank you enough. Thank you also for performing our first dance, I was so worried about getting up and dancing in front of everyone as I’m not really comfortable with all that but when you started playing I just couldn’t help myself & I don’t think I stopped all night!!!!!
I have had no end of people asking for your contact details. I’ve been telling all my clients here in Dubai & Abu Dhabi about how good you are, I’m hoping you will be playing here again in the near future so I can party again!! If you do ever head back this way let me know as I work at a Radio station and would love to promote you on air.
I wish you all so much success because you really deserve it.
Kate (aka Mrs Williams)
What can we say! The performance of MADHEN at our daughter’s wedding last Saturday at Linden Hall was absolutely fabulous. Although the band didn’t get on stage until around midnight, you kept the dance floor full for the next two hours, which was a remarkable feat considering that everyone had been on the go since mid afternoon. Without exception all our guests have told us how much they enjoyed the band’s performance.
Chris, our new son-in-law, was the one who chose to ask you to play at our daughter’s wedding reception and he promised us that we would have a show to remember. He was not wrong!! The band gave an extremely polished performance, delivered a wide variety of music to suit a range of tastes across a, number of generations and without hardly taking a break.
Although my husband and I personally thanked each member of the band individually at the end of your performance, please accept once again on behalf of MADHEN, our heartfelt thanks and those of the bride and groom, and indeed all our guests, for helping to make the day the success it turned out to be.
Very best wishes for the future.
Your were absolutely brilliant!! Our friends are still talking about THE party and THE band. We had a wonderful time and you made it very special for us.
Julia and Paul Stead
Thank you, and the rest of the band (sorry I failed my task of remembering all your names!) for what was an awesome show last night. I have to admit that I was a little anxious having booked the band just from finding your promo CD in our files and being impressed by your Scissor Sisters look! So last night I waited with a combination of excitement and nervousness for your performance… and you all threw away those tensions in the opening song. The client too was very happy last night—she was one of the first up on the dance floor and I’m told this morning she was one of the last to sit down at the end!
I am now looking for an excuse to organise a party for myself so you can perform at it—I can then have my opportunity to join the crowds on the dance floor! Maybe I’ll just have to wait until my big 30th.
Thank you all very much. Hope to see you again soon. Fantastic.
Leon Hughes,Events Manager.The Celtic Manor Resort
Wow, what a night!! Thank you SO MUCH for an amazing night Saturday. You really helped to make my 40th birthday a night to remember. I couldn’t have wished for you to be any better. You were all amazing and had great chemistry on stage and really got everyone up on the dance floor.
I have received so many texts and e-mails saying what a great night they had had and how brilliant you guys were.
All I can say is a heartfelt thank you.
Just a quick note to say thank you so much to you and all of the guys, for delivering such a professional and entertaining performance. It was a busy run-up—and thank you also for being so accommodating with requests that changed on what seemed a weekly basis!!
It was great fun and I hope that we will be able to do it again (or something similar) soon. Below are some comments made to me today!
The feedback has all been extremely positive so far, and the Pop Idols show went down a storm! Not only did the audience love it, but we’ve also had some very nice comments from the contestants who all had an amazing experience, and have asked us to extend their thanks to the band for being so amazing and supportive during their performances.
Francesca Coker—Jillie Bushell Associates
You were all AWESOME. You made the party—so extraordinary. Thanks to you and all at Madhen. I know I’ll be speaking to you again about future events, and I will also give your name to anyone who asks if I may. Justin was great—he played until 4am in the house, thanks to him too for that. My kids loved it too.
I hope from your end things ran smoothly and you had enough to eat and drink etc.
Just wanted to thank you and the whole band for giving an absolutely amazing performance at our wedding on 27th June. You were so energetic and finely tuned, and got everyone up and dancing right from the very start till the very end. Em and I had a fantastic time, as well as everyone else—many people have commented on how good you were and think you even managed to get a few hardened non-dancers up on the dancefloor!
In particular thank you for doing our first song—I know you don’t normally do them—but it was perfect and think you gave everyone else the confidence to sing along for us, which Em and I loved.
Hope you also had a good time and that you all found your way home ok afterwards.
Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much for a fantastic evening you gave us last night. You were sensational! We had such a great time. There was not one single person who didn’t think you were amazing! You looked like you were thoroughly enjoying yourselves too, which I hope was true.
We did warn our guests that you were the best band we’ve seen, and that you are fantastic. You lived up to all their expections, & more! If we had £1 for every moment someone said ‘What an amazing band!!’, we would have paid for the wedding in one hit!!
You are all super cool, extremely talented, & very professional. We wish you continued success with Madhen, and hope to boogie with you again sometime!!
Thanks to each & every one of you.
Best wishes, Jo & Pete Abel
I wanted to say a huge thank you for the gig last Thursday. People are still talking about the event in the office today, and mention the band in every other sentence. Truly the best band we have ever had perform for us, and one of the best by far I have booked—after booking bands for the last 10 years in my various roles.
Every member of the band was a total professional, not one problem occurred… just cannot recommend the band highly enough!
Would be more than happy to book again (actually looking for another reason!) thanks Madhen—really did make the party what it was!
Ben Harris & Thames River Capital
What can I say—you were AMAZING! Of course I knew that you were going to be brilliant because I had seen you at Billingsgate before Christmas, but you were even better than I was expecting. Your setup was fantastic, and things worked brilliantly with the production team. It just worked so smoothly (apart from when we walked into your dressing room and it was full of chairs—soooooooooooooo sorry about that!!!) and your advice on a few small changes to the running order was really appreciated.
I couldn’t recommend you more highly to anyone thinking about hiring a band. In fact I have already recommended you to Kenny Logan and the head of American Express in Europe who asked for your details. So many people commented on how fantastic you were and that you made their evenings. You certainly made mine—I finally got to relax when you started your set and had a fantastic dance before it was time to head home.
Thank you again—and hopefully we’ll work together again soon
Best wishes and thanks so much. You were just perfect.
Alison Sagar (Charity Events Ltd)
Just a note to say thank you for coming out to Barcelona and for performing so magnificently. We’ve received lots of comments that you were the best party band ever! Praise indeed! As a token of thanks I’ve enclosed a DVD which includes some of your performance and a CD-Rom of Photography taken on the night.
Thanks so much!
Until next time…
Charlotte & Katie @ WRG
