Sophie and Luke, Wedding, October 2019

If you are looking for a band who will keep your wedding going all night then look no further! These guys got everyone dancing and really made our wedding party go with a bang! We felt reassured from our first enquiry that this was the band for us! Jamie ran through everything the week before the wedding, we knew we were in good hands, and everything was amazing on the day! All our guests have said how brilliant you all were, and Luke and I couldn't agree more!

Soonita and Steve, Wedding, October 2018

I would highly recommend the band. We had a comprehensive, professional chat on the phone in good time before the wedding. They were open to our suggestions regarding playlists and song choices and flexible with timings. The performance was fantastic, lots of guests up dancing and I had compliments from friends and family about the band. Thanks for making our day so fun.

Kirsty and Andrew, Wedding, September 2018

I cannot express how good you guys were on Saturday! We were all blown away with your performance! You were true professionals and the set list was amazing!! 

We were thrilled to have you guys perform at our wedding and all the guests commented how fantastic you all were- even waiting so patiently until we had finished boogying to the grease medley ! Haha 😂 

Seriously though, we wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts - you really made it extra special and we are so grateful that you pulled out all the stops to make sure we had a brilliant evening!

Charlie and Dan, Wedding, September 2017

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for being our amazing band at our wedding at Thornbridge hall.  You were fantastic! we couldn’t have asked for more - everyone was dancing and having the most wonderful time! 

When you hit the first notes for our first dance, we couldn’t stop smiling. Wish we could've partied all the night away! But seriously, thank you! The band were amazing and the music you chose for the DJ set made my 93 yr old granddad want to dance. Don’t think there was a non-dance in the house! Lastly, couldn’t not say thank you for indulging our wanna-be rapper singing Gangsta's Paradise too! 

We were looking through snaps and came across this beauty - Love it!


Beth and Peter, Wedding, July 2017

Guys, thank you so much for Thursday. You were absolutely amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better band to help us round off the day! Everyone has said how much fun they had on the dance floor and the set list was perfect. I wish we could repeat the whole evening all over again.

Kieran, Wedding, June 2017

The band were fantastic and Sam the lead singer really got everyone going and interacted with the crowd. Everyone commented how much they enjoyed the band especially the saxophone. They were one of the highlights of my wedding.

Luke, Wedding, March 2017

Fantastic night, band were excellent, Communication before the event was good, all our guests commented on how good you were, thank you for making our night even better than we could have hoped for.

Jenny, Charity Dinner, March 2017

The Provocateurs were fantastic. I was new to running events but I didn't need to worry, other than choosing our music for the evening they care of everything. Great choice of music too and everyone loved them. Thanks guys. We would definitely have you back. :-)

Sarah, Wedding, September 2016

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so much for Saturday! You and the rest of the band were absolutely brilliant and never let the dance floor get empty. We've had so many comments from our guests about how good you were and how much they loved the music so we really can't thank you enough!

Jo, Wedding, July 2016

Just wanted to express our sincerest thank you to you and the boys for your help yesterday. 

It was an amazing day and it wouldn't have been the same without your efforts. Matt chose well and I was very grateful for your guidance throughout. 

Everyone was very complimentary and I think they enjoyed themselves so much they broke the dance floor! 

David, Wedding, May 2016

Thanks again for yesterday, I honestly couldn't have asked for anything more from you guys! You stole the show! (don't tell Sophie I said that haha).

We've had loads of messages today about how brilliant you guys were. Thanks for the happy memories.
