Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you before we jet off on honeymoon. You guys were absolutely fantastic on Saturday, so many people commented on how good you were and you certainly had everyone up and dancing!! Your rendition of Everywhere was brilliant, and dancing out to Purple Rain at the end of the night just finished of the day perfectly! Thank you again, Sarah and James - Married October 2018

A band can make or break a wedding reception, The Lion Men definitely made ours!! The dance floor was full all night and we had so many compliments after the day about how good the band were. Friends have even asked about them for their weddings too. Chris was also great and came up earlier on the day to set up so we could have music playing during the wedding breakfast. Helpful as well as entertaining. Can’t fault them, brilliant! - Abbey and Michael Married June 2018

Hi guys, We just wanted to say a huge thank you for your awesome performance at our wedding back in August. Your sets were fabulous with a great mix of all our favorite indie classics, 00's pop and current chart hits that kept everyone on the dance floor all night (and a good while after while you were trying to pack up!) If you're looking to book a wonderful folky band for your wedding, these guys are brilliant! Thanks again,Tom & Jen - James Grist - Married August 2018

Hi guys, just a short message to thank you so much for playing at our wedding in Cornwall last month. We had a fantastic day and you certainly finished it in style for us. You were really tight, had great vocals, got the balance just right with the set list, and made sure everyone went away happy ! Would highly recommend. Cheers guys, Tom, Helen and Hugh.

We booked the Lion Men for our wedding and they were absolutely brilliant! They are great musicians, played the perfect set list and had the dancefloor full all night! We are so happy we booked them! The band and the band boutique were also great in answering our questions before the wedding which is a massive help when you have so much to do. Thank you! - Wedding 21st April 2018
