Testimonials

50th Birthday Celebration I booked the band on the strength of watching them around the Fylde and various parties.
I had no doubt they would compliment my 50th party and wow did they!!.
From the set up to the final song they were brill.
The set list was perfect for a mixed party of oldies and young ones. The songs rocked the night away for the dancers including my 88 year old father! also they were not too loud and not too quiet; they entertained everyone.
One key point is The Raptors also do DJ playlists during the times they don't play which is brill and takes away the need for those cheesy DJ's who charge the earth.

Imperial Hotel Wedding “The Raptors played at my wedding at the Imperial Hotel this year, what a band!
We booked them after seeing them play in Blackpool, we knew they would be great for our wedding as we liked every song they played but there were no cliche songs you often hear other bands play (something we didn't want at our wedding).

They didn't disappoint, from the moment they came on they had us up dancing; I was even up on stage with them joining in at one point! There was some great banter with the crowd on the dance floor which I think just encouraged everyone to party even more.

People are still telling us one of the best things about the night was the live music. They really made our night a night to remember. “
