Reviews for The Bandeoke Experience
“Absolutely brilliant. We had a ball. Great band, fabulous hostess who got the crowd going, and Ross even did the sound check and lent the sound equipment for me and my band to play first. Ross was a joy to deal with from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble. Worth every penny!”

De Vere Theobalds Estate, Hertfordshire - May 2019
“I couldn't be more grateful to the Bandeoke Experience for making our party the best Company party ever.”
Although at first a little scared and apprehensive, our team quickly warmed up by really ruining some old school anthems with their awful singing. Thank goodness the band were wonderful and carried our broken tunes into history. We can't stop talking and laughing about it, reminiscing on one of the best weekends we've had in a long time. What a show. Thank you to Ross for helping us organise, and Dan for running it perfectly on the night. See you all next year, without a doubt.

“A lovely bunch of chaps who made the first night for us with an unforgettable set. What a night!“
We booked the band to perform at my brothers stag do last Friday night. They were BRILLIANT. They smashed out the classics and even learnt some particularly niche songs for us (Arab Strap) and nailed them. A lovely bunch of chaps who made the first night for us with an unforgettable set. What a night!

“We hired Bandeoke for a corporate event and everyone had a ball!”
I was concerned people would be shy of joining in, but if anything it was hard to keep them down. Feedback from what can be a tough audience was overwhelmingly positive - 75% rated them Excellent/Very Good. Highly recommended!

“You guys were fab. Such a delight to work with…”
In the run up to a party you made it as little stressful as possible for us, liaising brilliantly and directly with the venue over technical queries etc. So much appreciated our end when we had so much to co-ordinate. We loved your music and the bandeoke worked a dream. Thank you thank you.

“Bandeoke exceeded my expectations!”
Your flexibility in regards to set up and the time limitations we had we much appreciated. Your musicians were excellent, the kept the flow of the evening going well. It was great liaising with you in the run up and I very much appreciated your direct contact with the venue. When the client said karaoke, I was not convinced. Bandeoke gave us a much more professional option which wouldn't dive if we had no singers in camp! This made it a lot less stressful :) Thank you Ross to you and your team! Everyone had a great night and I was surprised by the number of willing volunteers :)
Staff conference and party, The Grand Brighton - January 2019
“A truly great evening which will be tough to top!”
Your show was everything I thought it would be...actually, it exceeded all my expectations! What a fantastic night!
The band were so professional and really friendly and encouraging! Everyone had such a wonderful time! It was great to hear the band perform before we all got up to have a go ourselves - it really put people at ease and made them want to get up and join in!
We were all so happy with the evening - everyone enjoyed the night and they were still mentioning it when we came back from the Christmas break! I can't thank the band enough for putting on such a great night of entertainment...and for letting me unleash my inner Alanah Myles! A truly great evening which will be tough to top! Thank you so much for sharing your talent, experience and professionalism - you allowed our hardworking team to really enjoy a well-deserved night of fun! 10 out of 10!
PS: I'm hiring you for my 40th birthday! Most people dread the big 4-0 but I'm actually looking forward to it now! Roll on next year! :-)

“This was our third time hiring BE and once again they did a fantastic job!”
The band were very flexible in accommodating us, especially given that our meal overran and so we started later than expected. This was tremendously helpful in keeping the evening running smoothly. BE kept in regular contact in the run-up to the event as well as on the day, and as always were well-prepared and played superbly.

“Myself and Laura were delighted and couldn't have asked for more from you…”
I just wanted to say thank you to yourselves and your band mates for helping make Laura's 40th birthday party a massive success. Everyone I have spoken to, have said just how good you guys were and helped to make it such a successful evening.
Myself and Laura were delighted and couldn't have asked for more from you.
I would like to thank you for your professional approach from day one, for going out of your way to assist with Jason Donovan and for being so organised on the evening.
I wouldn't hesitate to engage your services again and I am very happy to act as a reference point should anyone wish to speak with a satisfied client. Please feel free to quote relevant elements of this email on your website and social media.
I hope our paths cross again in the future Ross, please pass on my thanks to your colleagues (especially Carly, who was so helpful on the night).

You were fantastic!! The Bandeoke Experience were amazing and all the students at UEL who came loved it. We have received some amazing feedback from students, requesting for us to have you again.

"I think this was the perfect choice for our wedding and meant loads of people got involved…"
Hey Ross, thanks to you and your band for a terrific evening. All our guests had an amazing time and so did we. The band were great! Very positive and friendly people who all played really well. I loved that you guys entered the spirit of the performance and made our guests feel really welcome when it was their turn to sing. The communication all the way through to the lead up to the day was great and put me at ease which was one less thing for a bride to worry about. All our guests really loved the Bandeoke and had a wicked time at the wedding. I think this was the perfect choice for our wedding and meant loads of people got involved. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Bandeoke Experience for other events.
Thanks for all your hard work and for making our wedding a night to remember!

Corporate Anniversary Party, Forty Hall Lodge, Enfield, London - August 2018
"It really is a once in a life time experience that you should book every year!"
If you want to guarantee your party goes with a swing book these guys. We booked them for our wedding reception as we really wanted to have a band and the option for guests to join in. Like all couples getting married you worry about people having a good time and getting on the dance floor. The opposite happened thanks to Ross and the team. From the first song there wasn't enough room on the dance floor and so many people wanted to sing with a live band we had to extend the night. In truth we wanted to extend all night! The booking communication was great and they can play anything! The equipment and sound was fantastic but it is the band members that make it. Friends came to us the next day to thank us because when can you sing with a massive band at full volume! It really is a once in a life time experience that you should book every year! Thank you Bankeoke Experience!
Gordon & Jan Tait - Wedding - Lainston House, Winchester - July 2018
"...their level of service was fantastic..."
From the very first conversation with ‘The Bandeoke Experience’, their level of service was fantastic. This made it very easy for me to make the decision to hire them for my 40th Birthday Party. Ross and the guy’s arrived on the day at the exact time they said they would. They set up with no fuss and were professional at every point of the day/night. It goes without saying that my party was a huge success, all my guest had a fantastic time as did I. I have no hesitation in recommending ‘The Bandeoke Experience’ to anyone.
Simeon - 40th birthday - Bushey, Hertfordshire - July 2018
"Everything was top class.."
..ran smoothly and everyone enjoyed it. The song list is excellent, the musicians are very talented and the band sounded tight! Overall, the whole setup and show was very professional. Very happy, thank you!
Leo - stag party - London - July 2018
“…surpassed any expectations we had right from the very start…”
I hired the Bandeoke Experience for a corporate event. Ross and the team surpassed any expectations we had right from the very start. Not everyone is a fan of typical karaoke and it can be difficult when catering for all tastes in a large group (250), but it was so well executed that even those who had reservations thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. The band are very talented and professional and their passion and enjoyment really shone through and made for a great show. The variety of songs meant there was something for everyone. Bandeoke is the way forward! Thank you for making our event one to remember, for all the right reasons!
Summer Party, Heythrop Park, Oxfordshire - June 2018
"The Bandeoke Experience met our expectations and more!"
We were very impressed with the bands personality and patience! It was really great to see how well their compere was able to assist the delegates when they had lost their way and the band kept the timings. I think the team’s organisation the full way through the event was great. I can see how much effort you put in to making each event a success. A huge thank you for a great event, I really didn't expect so many people to get involved, you did a wonderful job!

“We have had fantastic feedback from the client…”
I wanted to reach out to say a massive thank you to yourself and the rest of the band. We have had fantastic feedback from the client and some of the delegates on the conference including the Awards and Gala Dinner. I think we can safely say based on the crowd chanting for more at the end of the evening that the room enjoyed The Bandeoke Experience!

"We could not have been more delighted..."
We book this band for my 60th birthday party and could not have been more delighted. They dealt with our enquiry extremely efficiently and kept in regular contact leading up to the event. They arrived in plenty of time, were fully set up well prior to our meal and couldn’t of done more to please us and our guests. The quality of the music was excellent, the pace of the evening perfect and everyone enjoyed it. All we need now is an excuse to book them again. Strongly recommend them.

“The Bandeoke Experience was fantastic and exceeded all expectations”
Ross and the band are extremely professional and talented musicians and being the second year in a row that we use them they never fail to impress. This a great alternative to a live band, you get the best of both worlds, Karaoke entertainment with a great band! It is interactive and always gets the crowd going! Thank you!

“We hired The Bandeoke Experience for a client event a few weeks ago in Barcelona and they were brilliant!”
All the delegates had a great time singing along and getting on stage with their various teams/countries/regions. It's a unique but brilliant concept where you can experience and combine Karaoke with a live band on stage. They had such a good time, that they wanted the band to continue playing throughout the night, but all good things comes to an end, unfortunately. Overall my client was very happy and I would definitely recommend hiring them if you want something a bit different, memorable and fun!

It exceeded my expectations! I absolutely loved it and thought you played brilliantly. Thank you for making all of the singers on stage feel welcome and for being so friendly and professional. You are great musicians! It was really stress free organising this because Ross sent through so much information and was so responsive on email. That's why I booked you and I really appreciate this. Thank you.
Thank you for making my 40th such a special celebration!

"It is actually the second time we have hired them..."
We hired The Bandeoke Experience for a work event and it was such a fab night, it really did make our evening. Everyone at the event has had nothing but positive things to say about them during the evening and the next day. It is actually the second time we have hired them and when those that had experienced them previously found out they were coming back, they were excited & looking forward to it. It really does bring something different to either just hiring a band or just having karaoke and made so many more people go up and sing that wouldn't do normally (myself included!)
Thanks for such a good night, I'm sure we will be hiring you again!

"We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work on Saturday (and the lead up to it). We had such an incredible day and amazing evening singing and dancing with you guys!"
The set up on the night looked and sounded fantastic and the star cloth absolutely transformed the room. All our guests loved the Bandeoke experience, and even though not everyone was brave enough to get up on stage they all enjoyed singing along in the crowd! You really made the evening flow and all of our guests enjoyed themselves. The ending was perfect and a moment that will stay with us forever.
Ross, thank you for all your help in the lead up and for putting us both at ease. We didn't have to worry at all about the band set up, which made everything that little bit easier! Everything was so smooth and professional, we really appreciated it.

Hi Ross, just a short note to say a huge thank you for ensuring we had such a fantastic evening, we were celebrating and you made that easy... The band were brilliant, professional and with a range of songs that engaged everyone in a fun, not intimidating way. Singing live on stage rather than into a machine is just a brilliant way to do Karaoke, no one was left out, we lost a few voices and everyone went home happy. A perfect evening in no small part down to you and the team, thanks again. Brilliant ... professional and engaging from start to finish. If you want a great, fun night that brings people together you couldn't do better! Yours,

Dear Ross, thank you so much for making our party so wonderful. From the minute I was in touch with you, your calm reassuring advice was spot on. You were very clear on your requirements which made setting up our home easy. Your vocalist was fantastic and supportive without being condescending and everyone remarked on what a supportive environment it was.
You were all lovely and it was a pleasure to have you in our home and I couldn't have wished more for my 50th birthday. I'd be delighted to recommend you and your business whole heartedly. Many thanks again.

We were really impressed with the Bandeoke Experience; the team were professional, enthusiastic and fully embraced the 80’s theme of our event.

It’s amazing that you managed to get the 4 members of the executive committee up onto the stage! This has never been seen before! I think the format that you have works extremely well. The selection of songs that you provide is great and everyone in the band is very good at what they do!
Thank you for providing such a fun entertaining evening for the delegates, every single person really enjoyed themselves and you were great to work with in the lead up and during the event. Thanks again and we will definitely be contacting you again soon!
Corporate Conference (global pharmaceutical) - Hilton, Vienna, Austria - January 2017
"...the standard of musicianship was top drawer and in many ways for those up on the stage it was like playing a gig, not doing karaoke, which is frankly brilliant.."
Whilst we were excited and kind of had an idea of how live karaoke could work, The Bandeoke Experience found a way to surprise and delight us and our guests! The evening was pretty flawless from start to finish. The band were great in helping us sort out the logistics, pick songs, work with the guests at the party and….which is important….they rocked! We were a little worried that there would be reluctance to get up and sing….no chance. Literally after the first song (the birthday boy+wife) the songs and singers flowed. Each brilliantly played by the band, with support, tips and cheerleading from the group as well. The kit used is simple to follow, the lyrics there for those who may not know them by heart, and the experience overall was top drawer. Particularly the birthday boy was delighted to be able to sing his favourite song in front of friends and family, learnt by the band as a surprise, and played immaculately. He fancies going on tour with the band now!
The band really helped to keep the songs flowing, the standard of musicianship was top drawer and in many ways for those up on the stage it was like playing a gig, not doing karaoke, which is frankly brilliant. We could not have asked for more from the band. There was a song for everyone….but like anything probably we could have sung on for so much longer!
We wanted to thank you again Ross for how organised, honest and helpful you were when planning this event. Your tips, feedback and advice really went a long way to making the night a success.
We were so delighted with the evening and your help before and for the night itself. We could not recommend you more highly and would have you guys at all our parties!

Firstly, thank you very much for playing a couple of weeks ago, your set was great and everyone had loads of fun. We all thought we were excellent singers until we watched the videos back in the morning!
We were impressed the professionalism of the whole band, of the great setup, and how flexible you were able to be within the venue. All songs were played to a great standard and the AV set-up made it easy for everyone to get involved. It definitely helped that you were on a second mic and able to help out when our guests missed their cues etc.

Your band were so professional prior to the event and on the night, and at the end of the night you all took down very quietly without anyone noticing. You really did make my event ‘the party of the year’ and all the guests have commented on how good you are.

- so many guests have commented on the band and how good they were. Communication leading up to our day was outstanding; on the day the band were unobtrusive, arrived in very good time and set up quietly; we were very impressed with their behaviour. We would and have recommended them to many.. Really easy to talk to and were very flexible . The sound system was really high speck; many guests including our Dj commented on how professional they were and how good the sound system was. We loved the music and from the moment they started playing guests were up and dancing.

"...I thought it was fantastic entertainment.."
Hi Ross, thank you very much to you and the team for a great night, I thought it was fantastic entertainment. Even though we had a slightly smaller crowd everyone was up and wanting to sing by the end of the evening, the chanting of “one more song!” at the end of the night definitely showed how much they enjoyed it. The improvisation of some songs was excellent; we didn’t have the 5-piece band yet still you guys managed to do some songs that could have proved really tricky! Thanks once again for all your work!

Hi Ross, Just a couple of lines to thank you to and all the band members for Saturday nights party. The whole lead up and night went fantastically well, the praise and great comments received since from all the guests has been amazing too. Thanks very much for all your efforts in helping to make the evening such a huge success with many happy memories. Listening to some video clips you will have work for a very long time, judging from the renditions from our guests!!!

40th Birthday Party - Knebworth, Hertfordshire - May 2016
"...When I heard you warming up as I was getting ready I knew that it was going to come together and that band were going to be brilliant..."
Hi Ross, just wanted to say a big thanks to you and the band for a fantastic night on Saturday - what excellent musicians you all are. When I heard you warming up as I was getting ready I knew that it was going to come together and that band were going to be brilliant. I would particularly like to highlight your generosity and attitude towards the "singers". Everyone commented on how the band got the best out of all of us, supporting with backing vocals when necessary and then allowing the more confident singers to let rip. I would also like to say a big thanks for adapting the DJ set-list to suit my tastes and will add that you were totally professional from the very first enquiry I made right through until the last piece of equipment was packed into the van. I really hope we will see you again.

50th Birthday Party - Cheltenham, Cotswolds - April 2016
"...We really could not have had a better evening.."
Ross, we did not have chance last night to thank the band for a fantastic evening. We really could not have had a better evening. All of the band members were extremely professional, and the evening ran so smoothly with Lisa as the compère. She was so good at assisting all the ' singers' and made everyone feel at ease. It was such a great night. Please pass on our gratitude to all the band, I am sorry we did not say goodbye. Many thanks we would highly recommend you.

"...I can't begin to tell you what a huge difference you all made to the evening.."
Dear Ross and band members, I am Vicky’s mum and along with 120 other happy people attended Vicky's birthday party on Saturday. I can't begin to tell you what a huge difference you all made to the evening.
As a young "pensioner", I was dubious about the concept - I imagined it would sound a lot like a drunken brawl! Wow! We were all blown away by your musicianship, subtle stage presence and as for your lead singer, she was so skilled at assisting and encouraging singers, though not taking over. It left everyone speechless.
So many people have commented about the fun they had - and not just those taking part, but those listening too. The night sped by and was far too short, thanks to your input into the evening.
I can't thank you enough for making Vicky's party such a fun event. There were a great many happy, drunk people raving about her party as they finally made their way home at 2am. Many, many thanks.

"...The Bandeoke Experience was far better than I could have imagined.."
Hi Ross, I wanted to say a massive thank you to yourself and the rest of the band for an outstanding evening! You made my husband’s 40th birthday a truly memorable and fun event, for him and all our friends. For someone who loves karaoke, the Bandeoke Experience was far better than I could have imagined. Everyone has said what a fantastic fun and entertaining evening it was. You may well have guessed that Stuart absolutely loved being able to sing on stage with you guys and had a great 40th birthday.
The fact that you cater for different confidence and experience levels i.e. you can sing the whole song, the backing vocals and you were there to help out if singers got lost along the way is brilliant. I think it gave people more confidence to take part and have fun without looking silly.
Ross, you and the team were extremely professional and very accommodating and we would definitely recommend you to anyone thinking of something a bit different and way more fun! Thanks again for helping us celebrate. I wish you and the band every success for the future. Kind regards

"...nothing but positive feedback.."
Hi Ross, we've had nothing but positive feedback regarding the Bandeoke Fresher’s night, so thanks once again for making it happen. There was great enthusiasm from students to perform, even from those who didn’t perform themselves, and you did a great job at reassuring the students when they were shy at first. We thought the song menu was well-balanced and well received too. I'm glad you also had a good time with us, and here's to future cooperation!

Hi Ross, Just wanted to say thanks again for the sterling job that you and the rest of the band did last night.

The experience that you guys offer is fantastic and everyone had such a great evening! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the bandeoke and everyone here at the office was very jealous when they found out about it!
Also, thank you for arranging the set-up so quickly for us as I know that you generally have more time allowed for this.
Once again, thanks for providing great entertainment!

"The Bandeoke Experience exceeded my expectations, the full band set up and professionalism of the show was impressive!"
As was the student engagement - we didn’t supply a DJ or additional ‘host’ for the night so I was a little worried that students wouldn’t have the confidence to get up and give it a go without some encouragement but the band did this really well – they even did a few extra songs to try and accommodate as many people as possible.
We were really happy with the act from initial enquiry through to the show. Another big thank you, it was great having you back at Roehampton again.

"...A thousand thank you's to you all for helping us have such fun and take away so many brilliant memories of our big day..."
We wanted Kareoke to feature in our wedding and loved the idea of singing with a live band.. ..through the whole process you were timely, supportive and generally excellent. You really flexed according to the ability of the singers so no-one felt like an idiot up the stage. Apart from weaker singers (ourselves) we also had some really gifted singers at our reception and we loved how much you riffed with them and helped them shine.
Our guests all loved Bandeoke and have made reference to how much they enjoyed it in the messages we've received since our big day. Our guests having their 5 minutes of fame have also given us some of the best photo's from the day too. A thousand thank you's to you all for helping us have such fun and take away so many brilliant memories of our big day.

"…The show was brilliant.."
We liked the idea of Bandeoke and wanted something fun for the wedding. Communication before the wedding was excellent and far exceeded expectations with good advice on things we hadn't even considered.
Apart from being excellent musicians and providing great music, the way they supported those who got up to sing was brilliant, picking up the lyrics if someone lost their place until they got themselves together again.
The show was brilliant, everyone commented on how good it was. A big thank you to you all from my initial enquiry, the good advice given and the great fun everyone had on the night!

Hi Ross, The Bandeoke show was a great experience and a very professional set up; you certainly drew attention from the crowd very quickly! The musicianship was a really high standard and the idea of singing a few songs to the crowd to get things going a good one. I have had lots of requests from the audience to have you back again so we will definitely have you guys back!

"You got the tone spot on...
Dear Ross, We needed some form of fun interactive entertainment to follow our work "All Hands" presentation; we knew we were looking for Bandaoke and you guys seemed like a good option. Your communication before hand was very good, especially considering the short time frame and rush as we waited until the last minute to make a decision. At the event you guys were very friendly and flexible. You got the tone spot on and we really appreciated you getting people going in the early stages of the event, by the end you had the whole room rocking and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the band!
Thanks and very best,

Thanks for a great night! You guys were excellent, very professional, reassuring and above all you looked like you enjoyed it as well which helped everyone to get involved. Your transition between covers and Bandeoke was great plus you were really good to all those willing to sing. We definitely felt you had the personal touch which put everyone at ease. Thanks again!

"...I wanted to go into my 40's with a bang - and you nailed it for me!
The Bandeoke Experience have a really wide range of songs and sounded really good on the demo’s on their website, but were even better live! Really friendly and helpful when I started dealing with Ross; overall communications were excellent - quick and helpful, and prepared to be flexible. We lost a bit of time at the start as the venue manager was late opening, but they played an extra half hour to make up for this. Everyone who interacted with them were very complimentary and everyone has been going on about how amazing the whole evening was.
You guys were amazing, can you pass my sincere thanks on to the rest of the band. My memory is sketchy towards the end of the evening, but I hope you enjoyed it as much as me and my friends did. I wanted to go into my 40's with a bang - and you nailed it for me!

‘The best Christmas Party I’ve ever been to’!
Ross, I just had to drop you a line to say thank you so much for making our party - and I’m quoting a number of the guests - ‘the best Christmas Party I’ve ever been to’! Firstly for all the work and effort you put in during the run-up to our event, always with a really helpful and can-do approach. And then on the night, I can safely speak on behalf of each and every person there when I say we all had an absolute ball. Obviously all the vocalists enjoyed hugely the opportunity to sing with such an amazing band. And the rest of the guests found it all thoroughly entertaining. I could go on but I’ll leave it there for fear of gushing too much….!!

A big thank you from Carol and I for a great evening on Friday. Don't think I have seen such participation/reaction from an audience for a long time. Think you have a very marketable idea - a band is much better than a recorded bit of music in so many ways - better sound, can interact with the singer and the singer gets prompted!!
All in all a memorable night so thank you, to all those who organised the do plus of course the vocalists.
