"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."
-Chris and Ulrike
"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."
- Faye White
"Archives played at my birthday party and they were excellent. They are a very talented band and lots of guest were commenting on how good they were. They played a great range of songs to suite all ages and had everyone up and dancing. I would highly Recommend!"

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

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!

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.

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.
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.

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!

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!
