The Waistcoats Wedding Band & Music for our entire day!

Everything was absolutely amazing for our few days at Borgo Di Tragliata and we enjoyed it sooo much! The Waistcoats helped make the whole day go so smoothly, we never had to think twice about music or entertaining the guests during the day as we knew from the get go it was all in good hands!! They looked after our ceremony music, aperitif music, we used their mics and system for speeches and playing a playlist during the meal and they were our band and late night DJ. They made the process of picking set lists and choosing music super easy which we loved and had loads of recommendations.

Amazing band!

We had the pleasure of having The Waistcoats at our wedding as well as the day after too. They are simply amazing and had everyone up dancing as soon as they started, so many of our guests are still talking about how good they were!

They were so easy to communicate with and were so helpful which made planning a wedding from abroad much easier. We booked The Waistcoats back in 2019 for our original date in 2020 and when we had to reschedule 3 times we always made sure The Waistcoats were available for the new date before finalising. The guys moved dates for us each time with no issues.

We were so lucky to have The Waistcoats, not only are they amazing at what they do they are genuinely nice guys and so down to earth, we could not recommend them enough. If you want amazing music, singing and good fun at your big day get The Waistcoats booked you won't regret it!

The perfect wedding band

The Waistcoats were amazing. All of our guests said how much they enjoyed the band. They were very organised from the beginning and tailored the music to our tastes over two nights. We would highly recommend booking them for a wedding.
