"We were absolutely thrilled with NOMAD from start to finish. They were hugely accommodating with our very bespoke needs from the outset and really helped us to envision what we could achieve and how. Then the band themselves were beyond fantastic! Such talented musicians and really entertaining, unique performers. We had 3 guests who were either musicians themselves or really picky with music and all 3 came up to me of their own accord to rave about Nomad - which made us very smug indeed! They were also absolutely charming people and even helped us in a sticky situation when someone kicked the lights in to the river and we had to fix it from a short circuit. I've never seen my friends and family dance like that and loved seeing everyone smiling start to finish; the energy was incredible. THANK YOU - many more bookings to come from our group."

“We just wanted to say a massive thank you! The process of booking the band was very simple. We liaised with James about timings on the day etc and they agreed to get an early flight to our wedding in France to give us extra peace of mind on the day which was great. Since the venue was not “kitted out “, James assisted us with booking the sound systems and lighting through a company in France. This was a massive help as we wouldn’t have known what was needed. James continued to liaise with the company right up until the day to make sure all the logistics were sorted for us. When we met on the day the whole band (and DJ) were very friendly and personable. The band also took into account our song choices and agreed on the day (nothing like last minute on our part!) to play our first dance song - “sure - no problem “ was the response when they were asked on the evening itself! In terms of the actual music - it was amazing! It’s a bit worrying booking a band when you haven’t heard them in person beforehand but they definitely live up to their videos on the website! Everyone LOVED the band. A few of the comments we received from guests were: “Best band EVER!”, “We have been to a LOT of weddings -we are old!! - and I can say that band was our favourite - amazing!“ “I write events journalism (the person is a professional journalist) and I like watching events for that reason and I can honestly say that is the first time ever at a wedding or other event, that I have seen EVERYONE up and out of their chair dancing!” This was true - when the band were playing not a single person was sitting down! The comments continued in a similar vein from all of our other guests. They certainly know how to “work a crowd” and the involvement with everyone there was brilliant. The DJ that we booked through them was also brilliant and judged the crowd well. Would recommend! Next plan is for us to try to think of another event so we have a good excuse to hire you all again!! We had a fantastic time - thank you all for being a big part of it. Sarah & Mark, Chateau d’Ingrandes, France, 1 August 2019.”

"I can safely say they’re the best band we’ve ever hired for a private party, they were bloody brilliant. Their immersive performance style as well as their musical talent shone through. All the guests were incredibly impressed and they now think I have a sixth sense for finding talented bands"

"The past few weeks have been a lovely hazy blur and I have also been meaning to email you. A huge huge thank you from myself and my partner Phil. I can't put into words how over the moon we are with our choice to go with you and the band for our special day. I still get goosebumps thinking about when we walked into the field for the drinks reception...the vibe, the sun, even down to the specific song the guys were playing is such a strong memory that we're honestly not going to forget in a while!! The music was so important to me as I've worked on so many corporate events and I really wanted a team of people who felt real, fun and special and you guys nailed it. It really did make the day for us, we wish we could re-live the whole dance floor from start to finish. My only regret was not booking you for longer!!! But having you for the drinks reception and then to kick off the party was important, you set the tone and got everyone drinking and in the mood. The main feedback we've received from guests was 'hands down the best band we've ever seen at a wedding' 'who are the band' !!! So many people were all saying this. Nailed it!! Needless to say we couldn't be happier. You're awesome! Thank you again and all the best. Mel"

"Hey James (and gang). Just want to extend the BIGGEST thanks to you guys ever. You honestly made our wedding. Everyone loved you and we loved you and we really are sorry for ever doubting your playlist. Lesson well and truly learnt, you guys know how to bring the party and everyone LOVED you! Thank you so much for being so awesome in the lead up to the wedding and on the wedding day itself, we could not have asked for more. Hope you had a safe flight home/awesome few days in BCN. Will tag you in any videos we come across. Thank you a million times over, Katy and Adam."

"Hi James, I just wanted to pop a note over to say how amazing the band and DJ were. Everyone absolutely loved them and the band really made the night! So much fun. Please pass on my thanks and feedback to the band... we’d have them back in a heartbeat! Thank you for all your help in the arrangements- it went seamlessly. Literally in the office all day - All I’ve heard is how amazing the band were - the guys smashed it! Hannah"

"Nomad played at our wedding reception in Cairo, and brought the house down! They sounded brilliant and got everyone up on the floor, besides being funny, wacky and energetic. And when they came back for their second set, they did it all again! Same energy, same amazing spirit. They were the highlight of the night, besides my dancing :) Everything was easy to organise, they sorted out their own travel and hotel, and worked with the DJ to agree on the sound system. Professional from start to finish. Thank you guys!"

"Hi James, We wanted to write to thank you SO much for making our wedding so amazing!! You really took it to the next level and it was better than we could have ever dreamt! I’m sorry we didn’t get much time to actually chat on the night. But I am quite sure you will be requested back in Malta soon, we have had SO many people asking for your details and saying how great you all were :) Hope you enjoyed your little stay in Malta too! Thank you again, Lisa & Jonas."
