Why Choose Us?
In the build up to a wedding, every last detail has the potential to become super stressful, including the evening music, but not so with these guys. The Distractions sorted everything – the equipment, the lighting, background music – and we didn’t once have to think about it! It was brilliant! They catered for our first dance, responded to on the spot requests from over-enthusiastic family members (!) and even let me join in on the drums for one song! The Distractions were completely professional, but bags of fun too! A band that was fun but terrible would be no good, and a band that was brilliant but didn’t enjoy themselves would be equally bad, but the Distractions blew my family and friends away by sounding absolute brilliant while not taking themselves too seriously! We had the most wonderful evening! The only frustrating thing was it seems we missed out on a lot of the fun, as chatting to family the next day it seemed the party carried on way into the night long after Ruth and I had left, and the photos are there to prove it! It was great to think of heading of and leaving all our loved ones behind enjoying themselves! To be honest, all I wanted from a band was that my bride would love it, and my friends and family of all ages would join in and enjoy themselves – if you want the same, move land and sea to book this band!

The Distractions were a delight to work with. Fully professional in every area, and they definitely know how to help a group party. Our event was a resounding success, and everyone was up dancing. The Distractions where flexible when needed and had a broad song choice that meant everyone got involved in the celebrations.

Thank you to The Distractions for providing an amazing set for our wedding reception. The selection of songs was perfect – even to the point of accommodating a new song for our first dance! Everything was done extremely professionally, from initial communication to on-the-day set-up. The incredible sound you guys produce was enjoyed by all our guests, and we appreciate all the hard work that went into giving the evening such a party atmosphere! Thank you!

We absolutely loved having ‘The Distractions Band’ at our wedding, we chose the Satin Package, and were thrilled with how the band managed to create a great atmosphere throughout our afternoon reception. We were particularly impressed at the flexibility of the band as they ended up playing for around 4 hours, and moved outside to entertain our guests as the DJ set up for the evening reception. We would definitely recommend ‘The Distractions’, and hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
