What people say.

 

I have been to see the Fantastic Elastic Band at various gigs in different venues and they never disappoint. Every event has always been full of great energy from the start and the crowd have always been up dancing through the whole set. 

So it was an easy decision for me to ask them to play at my recent birthday party in Chalfont St Peter. They have a huge portfolio of songs and they happily added a few of my own requests. The quality of the band and each of the musicians was outstanding, the party rocked all night, they made my party super special. I’ve been to their events since and they never fail to deliver. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for a gig, party or more formal event. Truly excellent!

We had the Fantastic Elastic band play at my 40th birthday party in October. They were recommended to me by an owner of a bar where they frequently play. It was a serious decision for me as my friends and family have all different music tastes and I wanted the music to really sum up who I am, and what vibe my party would be. Well, I was totally blown away. From the moment the music started, the energy coming from the musicians was incredible, they had everyone up dancing all night long. Thank you, my party was the talk of the town, the best music, with high quality sound. It made my birthday better than I ever imagined. The musicians were really interactive and friendly to everyone. 

Its all about the music and memories to last a lifetime. I would highly recommend the Fantastic Elastic Band to anyone for any occasion.

The Fantastic Elastic band were amazing at our wedding. From the first meeting to the actual night we felt assured everyone was going to have the best time. We spoke about a song list and there were a few tunes we added (which they did amazingly) and they even let myself (the bride) and a few family members come up and sing along with them. As soon as they started the entire party got up and danced. It made the entire room come alive. Having a live band at your wedding is just a whole other experience. It was amazing to have these guys play for us and we didn't want them to stop. Their collection of songs were perfect - we were also able to talk and plan the loose running order before, which was great, and their performance was brilliant. Nobody wanted to leave when they were done. I don't think our wedding would have been as fun and lively as it was if we didn't have the Fantastic Elastic Band.

"Great musicians who played a variety of songs in different genres for our surprise party. They were punctual and professional and were happy to comply with all my weird requests !! We had many comments from guests all saying how much they enjoyed the band. One guest summed it up when she said 'they were so good you just had to get up and dance!'

I would highly recommend these guys for any function you have."

Thanks again, you were great.

Best wishes

By popular demand from my colleagues at work, we’ve now used the band three times for work-related functions. Two Christmas parties on the run in a local pub and London bar venue with a three-piece and more recently a four-piece turnout for a very grand “Black Tie” ball at the Langham in London. Every time the lads ensure that the dance floor is full and from start to finish.  They sound great and play all the right sort of music to encourage people to boogie all night and have a good time.
 
Thank you guys - Alan Bailey - GSK.


I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you so much for The Fantastic Elastic Band's terrific performance at our wedding in Stansted. Everyone has commented that the music was amazing and I did not stop dancing all night. Thank you, thank you, thank you! The music was a huge part of what made our day so special. I am recommending you guys to anyone that will listen.

I'd like to thank you for the fantastic performance you gave at our engagement party. We thought the music was brilliant and perfect for the venue and our guests. No one wanted to leave at the end of the evening. My elderly grandparents were planning on leaving early, but they stayed until the end of the night because they were enjoying the music so much. We'll definitely be recommending you to our friends for future events. Thanks once again.

The Fantastic Elastic Band played at my 40th celebrations and they quite simply rocked the party!! They played great music that got everybody moving. They were very friendly and easy to deal with in the run-up to the party and amenable to any particular requests we had. On the night they were great fun in addition to being good musicians and they even seemed to be having a lot of fun themselves which is a good sign!

Everybody has commented on how fantastic the band were. I'm sure they will be getting some more bookings on the back of our party!!!
Thanks guys.

It really is a wonder when you unexpectedly stumble across a real 'find' in the most surprising of places. As a visitor here in London from overseas, I have never seen a band as devoid of airs and petty vanities as The Fantastic Elastic Band are: a covers band comprising mature members who perform a selection of classic rock and pop songs with emphasis on having fun, leaving behind the pressure of feeling a need to prove anything else!
The diversity of their setlist is quite stunning and while I had expected to hear mostly older songs, I was pleasantly surprised to learn differently hearing the likes of "Sex On Fire"- a real crowd-pleaser that defies age - and which the band performed in a way that even the Followill brothers would have been proud of.
As the evening progressed I arrived at the conclusion these guys were no pretenders just looking to score with the ladies or looking for a paycheck as I listened to covers of "Don't Stop Believin'", "Valerie" and "Sweet Home Alabama" in which Adrian cut all the difficult solos with the calm of a seasoned guitarist, while lead vocalist, Mark, sang his lines in way that was new to me and yet still made it easy for me to sing along to.
 
In the end, though, how seriously does one take a covers band?!
In my opinion, I feel the strength of any such outfit lies in their ability to get you on your feet and make you feel that you are seeing the real thing. The Fantastic Elastic did this for me and got top marks! I saw Lynyrd Skynyrd, Oasis, The Killers, Tom Petty, Journey, Foo Fighters, Snow Patrol and the Stereophonics all for the price of a beer and yes, I had a few beers that night, but it was the music that got me high!
 



An awesome Christmas Party to end the year was made even more memorable by having The Fantastic Elastic Band as part of our celebration for the second time.
The band arrived on time, they set up quickly and played two sets over the evening (total of 2, 5 hours). Very reliable for every occasion.
They also provided music for the interval which kept the party going. Catering to all musical tastes and very approachable when asked for requests.
They were able to make sure that the dance floor was never empty. The dance floor was stomping from start to finish!
Very professional and polished act.
We appreciate them coming all the way from London.
Thank you for a great evening and wouldn’t hesitate to book for future events.

   THEY ROCK!!!!

The Fantastic Elastic Band played at our wedding and they were outstanding. If you want a great party then they're definitely worth considering, the dance floor was filled from beginning to end. Not only do they play a broad range of great songs that everyone knows and can sing along to, they play them very well.
We had seen the band numerous times before our wedding so we knew they were consistently great, we've also seen them many times since.
They were at the venue in plenty of time, they were very discreet when setting up and they were ready to start on cue. They also provide music for their interval which keeps the party going.

The Fantastic Elastic Band were MAGNIFICENT!!!! It was an absolutely perfect evening, and in mine and Johnathan's opinion, it was the band that made the wedding! (Apart from the actual ceremony obviously). Their music was great, appropriate and much enjoyed by all the guests......Thanks for a fab evening.
 
 
Thanks once again for playing at our wedding - it was a terrific night and we appreciate you coming all the way out to the West Country
for us.

 



We had an amazing day and so many comments from the wedding party about how great The Fantastic Elastic Band were!! Everyone was dancing by the end of the night, we had run over with the speeches but the band were flexible on time. The content was brilliant and the singing fantastic.


The Fantastic Elastic Band really made our Christmas party a good one. The band played a wide range of songs from different eras that suited all tastes. The dance floor was full for the whole performance. We would definitely book them again. Thanks for a great night.
