FEEDBACK FROM CORPORATES, WEDDINGS AND PARTIES:
"Thanks so much to the CandyStripes for making our wedding reception so memorable. The music they played catered for all ages, and the energy they brought was amazing... it was buzzing all night!! The dance floor was always full and they played our first dance song live for us. The main thing people were (and still are) talking about after the wedding was how great the music was! Hannah is a real pleasure to deal with. Thank you so much!!!!! Xx"
Sarah & Paul - Wedding - 29th May 2015
"The Harpur family were very happy with their party to celebrate Charlotte's 21st. We had no hesitation in rebooking CandyStripes from two years ago, you do not disappoint in any respect. All the band seem to have fun when performing and the dance floor was never empty. Two and a half hours straight is no mean feat and the musicianship is stunning. I have Go Pro evidence of me standing in admiration at the guitar work and I found it very difficult not to sing along with Hannah! It was very good of you to indulge me with the backing for my blues song. in short, you are just the ticket, the bees knees, top hole and definitely a first class outfit. It's always nice to be appreciated. Nick"

"CandyStripes played for our tennis club do. Paul said that the Chairman told him that it was the best Summer Ball so far, and he thought your band were excellent and Paul received several emails from members to say that they had a great evening, plus we raised over £2000 for the club which was the aim of the evening as well as having fun. So please tell all the other members in the band that they made our evening perfect and we want to say a really big thank you to you all."

Heather & Russell Turner, Surprise Birthday Party - May 31st 2014
"We had only heard CandyStripes from the website when we booked and then were sent a CD. We were still nervous as they sounded too good too be true. However THEY stole the show at OUR wedding! A good range of music was played during the day including an acoustic set and an evening set! They are still being talked about 3 weeks after the wedding when we talk to our guests!
The guys were organised, polite and communication was good! Well worth using for any event!"
Andy & Michelle Dean, Coltsfoot Manor Retreat, Datchworth - May 10th 2014
"We had Candystripes as our wedding band (in Norfolk) and they were FANTASTIC, guests still talk about how great they were more than three years later. Had everyone of all ages 1-81 up and dancing with a range of music from the 60's to current."
Katie & John Hankers Smythe - 2nd feedback, January 14th 2014
"Thanks so much for playing at our wedding. It was amazing. We picked Candystripes as they were playing at the wedding we met at. They were fab then and they were even better on our wedding day ;-) The band were happy to learn our first dance which made it even more special for us. We will definitely be recommending them to any of our friends who need live music. Thanks Candystripes."
Ben & Pippa, HMS Nelson, Portsmouth - November 2nd 2013.
"Lucy and I would like to thank you for making our party a fantastic event, you guys were amazing and we have had so many positive comments from our guests who absolutely loved you! Hopefully we will see you again somewhere in the future.
We booked iCandy [CandyStripes's band-name with agent 'Alive Network'] following a search through the Alive Network site and listened to the tracks provided. We 'blind listened' to different bands and compared the tracks and made a decision to select iCandy. What a great decision that was! Right from the start Hannah and the chaps couldn't have been more polite and professional in every aspect of the organisation and performance. These guys really got our party going and the dance floor was full for 2 hours. Hannah is a great vocalist and you can see that they are very accomplished musicians. Our guests absolutely loved them and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them or book them again! Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.
Thanks again. Kind regards, Adrian & Lucy"
Adrian Pettitt, The Suffolk Golf & Spa Hotel, Bury St Edmonds, Suffolk - October 5th 2013
"Thank you very much Hannah for playing at our wedding, you and your band played a fantastic set on the 21st September at Marwell Zoo! We got so many good compliments, everyone got up and had a dance, we would definitely recommend you to everyone! :) Thanks again, Mr and Mrs Meyrick"

As organisers, myself and Cathy were extremely pleased with their performance and will certainly be recommending them to future Ball organisers here in Worthy Down."

"Check out CandyStripes - they played at our wedding and were SO awesome. A live band can really make or break your event and these guys really do party hard and ensure your guests do too!!!!"

"A massive well done to you and your band last night, you were incredible!! You made it a great night!! :)"
Simon Deaves, brother of the Bride, Crondon Park - 15th February 2013
"CandyStripes were simply great. Great choice of songs ranging across the decades which meant there was something for everyone to sing along and dance to. Really professional group and kept the flow going at all times. Hannah was really vibrant and her singing was 1st class, a really seamless performance from the group! I have had many guests come back to me to say they had a wonderful evening and how good Hannah and the guys were. I would have no hesitation in booking these guys again, thank you so much for contributing and playing a big part in a great night!"
Glenn Johnson, Hennerton Golf Club, Berkshire - September 29th 2012
"We are so glad that we book CandyStripes for our team day. The booking process was very easy and after a brief chat about our requirements they turned up on time and immediately got set up and ready to go. They started with an acoustic set and immediately showed that were a talented and professional group with great musicianship and lovely harmonies. Their equipment was first class and the PA and lights were just right. After a short break they then came back at full throttle with a fantastic mix of rock tracks that had the audience singing and dancing from the start. Followed by a full on hour long set including AC/DC, Guns’n’Roses, Kings of Leon and every other song I could think of that had people dancing and singing into the night, oblivious that the weather had turned a little cold [as the gig was an outdoor event]. The band were even forced back on for a forth encore and ended to raucous cheers! Thanks very much for a wonderful night."
Graham Jones, Oxford University Press - Team Building BBQ Event, Oxford - September 13th 2012
"Thank you so, so much for playing at our wedding. The music and atmosphere were absolutely fantastic and I have had lots of people say what a great band the Candystripes were. I know you also played past 11.30pm and did some encores and we really appreciate that - I really don't think people wanted you to stop!!! You really made the evening for us - so thank you so much!
We will of course spread the word to anyone else we know in the area that need a band for a wedding or event - we could not recommend you highly enough. Best wishes, Sarah"
Sarah Barrington, Bride - Private address, nr Chicester - September 1st 2012
"Just another big thank you for such a wonderful performance by you and Candy Stripes last Saturday at Sarah & Alastair's wedding. Everyone thought your music was simply fantastic and you really made the evening go with a swing. Apart from getting me on the floor you even had the neighbours dancing to it in their homes - so I was told!
We'd be delighted to recommend you for any other function. Well done and thank you to you all. Kind regards, Clive Barrington."
Clive Barrington, Father of the Bride - Private Address, Nr Chicester - September 1st 2012
'We just wanted to say a huge thank you to CandyStripes for the music and entertainment you provided for us and our guests last night. It was a fantastic evening and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves - it really finished off so perfectly what had already been such a wonderful day, and we couldn't have asked for more. We really cannot thank you enough for helping to make our wedding day so special! With love and best wishes, Laura and Benjamin xx'
Laura & Benjamin Lappin, Kingscote Barn, Tetbury - August 9th 2012
"CandyStripes played this weekend for our daughters 21st. What a fantastic band - great sound and 2 very lively sessions that had everyone on the dance floor and buzzing for more.
What a great night - thank you and the band so very much. We had a marvellous time and it was just great that the youth were on the floor all night. Hannah's vocals were strong and she even out-sang the choral attack from the dance floor! You all had fantastic energy and your voice is terrific - we all loved it. We couldn't have hoped for a better party band - Encore!!!!"
