"Archives played for my partners 50th birthday party and made it a truly memorable evening. They're very talented musicians who play with energy and enthusiasm. From the first song they played, everyone raved about how good they were and asked where I found such a good band (one person even booked them on the spot for a future event) They had everyone up and dancing through the entire set and had everyone calling for more at the end.
The band were a pleasure to work with and helped us enormously with running the party, from choosing the set list to running with two different set up times until the very last minute to allow for the vagaries of british summer weather. They even learned a couple of new songs for us to add to the set list on the night. They were complete professionals and really nice people.
To anyone who is thinking of booking Archives for a party or event - just do it, now. You won't regret it. They'll turn it into a night to remember."

"Archives have played at the Star inn a couple of times and each time have brought a good crowd with them. They play a great selection of songs suitable for all age groups - some great classics and current songs and they always have everyone up and dancing. They're very professional and have a great set up. We would always have them back - great band and great people."
- The Starr Inn, Bentley
"Archives performed at our wedding and I could not recommend them more highly. The band themselves are extremely talented and brilliant at what they do. The guests absolutely loved them and danced the night away and we received so much positive feedback.
The whole process of booking the band to organising the song list through to them setting up on the day was seamless.
We will defiantly be booking the band to play at any of our future events."

This band are fantastic! They played at our wedding reception, and were one of our favourite things about the day. They learnt some of our favourite songs for the evening, which really made the evening special with a personalised touch. They were also flexible with playing times to ensure the dance floor was as packed as possible, everyone loved them! We had lots of comments about how brilliant they were, a big thank you to them for making it a night to remember!

The amount of people who said 'THE BAND WERE AWESOME' is ridiculous.
You guys SMASHED IT.
Honestly, best day and night ever and we cannot thank you enough.
MADE OUR DAY GUYS!"

"I booked Archives for my 50th birthday party celebration based upon their set list and youTube clips. Right from my initial enquiry they were a pleasure to deal with even including a special request into their set list for the evening and allowing me to use their PA to play music form my iphone during the intermission.
The band arrived early to set up and sound check and you could tell from their equipment and how they went about setting up that they are serious and talented musicians. Once they started playing they were simply brilliant with a wide repertoire of indie/rock which went down a storm with everyone at the party. Everyone I spoke to commented how good they were and were amazed that I had managed to book such a great band. By the end of the evening everyone was up dancing and calling for more, which to be fair included and extended encore that finished on a complete high.
I would thoroughly recommend Archives to anyone who wants a talented group who know how to rock a party, they are an absolute pleasure to deal with, clearly enjoy what they do and are brilliant at it. I would gladly book them again, I just need to find the excuse."
"These guys are soooo good. I would recommend them to any bar, pub, party or wedding.
Very nice guys chatting too. We did a 1 week job in farnham and stayed at the lions brewery where we saw them. Then headed back to nottingham.
Im a trained drummer from icmp london and I can truly say these guys were incredibly impressive.
Well done guys."
We had Archives play at our wedding on the 4th of August... All i can say is WOW...From the moment they sent us their song list we knew they were the band for us. Such a great mix of music. They are fantastic ad their music kept all ages and music tastes on the dancefloor. They also worked very well with the DJ and were on time, friendly and set up with no fuss. For any other bride and grooms I would reccommend sending a list of songs that you would like to hear from thir list but give them licence to move them around / change order / pick other ones. Lots of songs are in different keys and use different instruments. We gave them this licence and the results spoke for themselves, the music flowed from start to finish of both sets. They will not let you down. We have had so many comments from people at the wedding asking about he band and complimenting them on their music. They are a real band.... could not be happier with them or recommend them highly enough for any event...They made our wedding very special. Many thanks, Yo and David x

A fantastic band who made our wedding day extra special. By the end of the evening you had everyone jumping and are still getting compliments today.
These guys are the real deal and will go down a storm at any gathering or party, not just a wedding. The 5 piece set up with both female and male vocalists set these guys apart! Book them now!
PS thank you for putting up with the 30+ degree heat, you guys must have been roasting, our wedding day was a scorcher.
- Ben Bush
These guys were honestly incredible. They played at our wedding and had everyone dancing all night long. The set list was right up our street and they even let the groom join informal a coupld of songs which made our day even more memorable!I 100% recommend this band if you want guests to sing and dance the night away.
- Lisa and Nick
Alex and the guys played at our wedding and oh my goodness they were amazing! They learnt our first dance song and played it beautifully, we loved every single song they played and wow did they know how to bring the party! Our guests absolutely loved you! Thank you so much for being the perfect addition to our day and making it even more special than it already was!
Hi Alex, thank you so much to you and the boys for Sunday! We had such a fantastic day and evening, and all our guests said what an amazing band you were - so thank you again.
All brilliant, great songs and atmosphere - and thank you so much for accommodating for the request! I think you were the part of the day that Gary and I enjoyed the most. it was better than we could of imagined.
What a band! Archives performed at my wedding recently and took our guests by storm! They handled the venues sound limiter well and even though they were playing at half capacity due to the limiter, we had endless compliments on the sound and the dance floor was filled through to the very end. The cover of our wedding song was absolutely stunning too. Thank you all so much!
Dear Alex and the Archives,
This is just a note to say a massive thank you for playing an awesome set at our blessing! We had an absolutely amazing time and everyone said you were the best band they'd seen at a wedding! It was also lovely to be able to dance to a live version of our first dance song, it made the day even more memorable.
Thanks so much again! It was a brilliant set and made a wonderful day even better!
-James and Michaela
We would just like to say thank you so much for everything (and I mean everything) you did to make our weekend so so special, we could not have asked for any more! Everyone has said how amazing the music was!
- Ben and Brogan
We couldn't have wished for a better band for our wedding, had everyone dancing until the end. So many guests told me they were the best wedding band they'd ever seen, they certainly were for me. Genuinely lovely bunch and easy to work with too. Thank you!
-Will and Holly
Thank you so much for the excellent performance at our wedding last week! We both absolutely loved every minute of it and all our guests are still raving about how great the band was! You really turned it from a wedding into a party. We both also really loved your rendition of 'You've got the love', it was really special to have our first dance to a live performance and made the day that extra bit unique.
Thanks again and all the best!
Alex and Ida
Thanks again so much for playing at our wedding last night. Our guests kept telling us how amazing you all were and we loved you guys and your music!Thanks so much for the first dance song too, it was perfect. Will recommend you for sure!
We just wanted to drop a quick thank you for performing at our wedding last Friday. Multiple guests have said how good you were and that they really enjoyed it. We didn't want your set to end! You created such a great atmosphere.
Louisa and Chris
This band is awesome!! They have just played at our wedding. Great set list, got everyone dancing and singing, created a fantastic atmosphere! Guests all saying how fantastic they were! Can't thank you all enough, you were brilliant! Thanks!
- Ellie and Ben
We hired Archives to play our wedding and we couldn't be happier with them. Before the event they were always available and happy to talk through what we wanted, and then really delivered on the day.
Due to sound restrictions at our venue, which they were more than happy to work around, they performed an acoustic set before playing a full electric set later. Both sets were fantastic and many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the band.
They also did a brilliant job of learning and performing our first dance which will stay with us forever.
If you're looking for a professional, polished but also fun band then Archives are the ones for you!
Archives performed at our wedding at Lainstone House in October and they were absolutely SUPERB. Every person from the youngest through to the oldest was up dancing and the dance floor was full all night. We had so many positive comments from our guests. The whole day was fantastic and archives put the icing on the cake. We can;'t recommend them enough! Thanks guys!!
Thank you for being the most fantastic band for us on Friday. We absolutely loved you guys from the acoustic set during dinner, which was exactly what we wanted - Super chilled. My personal favourites were here comes the sun and Drive. My new father in law absolutely loved you guys - specifically the foo fighters tracks... He kept telling me during dinner how great you were!
And then the evening - Where do we even begin! The first dance, we were so keen to see what your rendition of VCR would be like and it did not disappoint, it was incredible. We both kept saying as we were dancing - they are so good!
We hope you had fun, enjoyed the meal and the setting for the day. We can';t thank you enough as we thought you were just fantastic and couldn't have asked for more.
You guys absolutely smashed it! You were awesome and delivered everything we could have possibly wanted. The first dance song was perfect and everybody said how great you guys were and how much fun everyone had so just wanted to express our gratitude. Thanks again!
-Ian and Amy
We have known Archives for some time but on our wedding day they exceeded all expectation. They learnt an amusing song as a surprise for my new hubby to open the first set and smashed it. The Atmosphere as they rolled through the different covers was amazing throughout... Right up until the last dance which was a pretty emotional moment for us. The number of guests who have made a deliberate point of mentioning the band in thank you cards has been phenomenal to say nothing of the local villagers who flung open their windows and swung their pants too, according to the local FB group posts. Thanks you guys for giving us all a brilliant night! You're the best!
Netty and Dorset
Tom and I just wanted to say thank you so much for being totally awesome at our wedding! All our guests keep commenting what a great vibe there was, what energy you brought and how amazing you were so thanks again. You really did make our day!
Also is it possible to send us a recording of our first dance, we keep listening to the original on YouTube but it's just not the same, you guys actually made it sound better!
Tom and Victoria
