Many thanks for a fantastic night. So many brilliant comments about the band!

Amy Mckenzie - Bradworthy Carnival (28 August 2017)

Thank you all so much, we had a great evening. Everyone today has been saying how fantastic you guys were! We couldn't have wished for any more!

Thanks again

Phillip Hargreaves (25 August 2017)

Just to say the biggest thank you to you all for playing last night. It was INCREDIBLE!! We had the most amazing day and everyone has commented how good you were! I'm only sorry that I didn't manage to thank you individually last night!

April was over the moon with Mr. Bright side too so thanks for doing that! You smashed it out of the park!

Dom and April (31 July 2017)

Hi Ian, and the rest of the Loose Cannons

Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for playing at our wedding - you guys did an amazing job, as always, we wouldn't have wanted our guests to dance the night away to anyone else. You really are all so incredibly talented.

We've received so many amazing comments from our guests about you all, I wish I could have written them all down and relayed them all to you.

Thank you so much, again. I hope we hear you again at another wedding soon.

Ellie and Steve (29 May 2017)

Hi John, just a quick thanks for last night. You guys completely made the night and it was great to see you again!

Everybody was saying how great you were!

Give all the guys my best!

Mitch (07 May 2017)

To The Loose Cannons,

Wow what can we say you were absolutely incredible! The song selection was perfect and the sound simply fantastic. Everyone has commented that they have never known a wedding with so many people up and dancing and the compliments for you guys have been overflowing!

We had the most wonderful day ever and celebrating in the evening with so many family members and friends was amazing we had so much fun dancing the night away.

We will absolutely be recommending you to family and friends (in fact we already have) and look forward to planning an anniversary party just to have you guys back again.

With huge thanks from

Jen and Will (Mr and Mrs Gadsby!) xx (01 June 2016)

Truly, we were all blown away by Loose Cannons.

The youngsters all agreed that they'd never experienced a wedding that had such a continuously packed dancefloor. I reckon that's because us oldies also found you irresistible and danced to every number you played.

The smart London crowd were mightily impressed and the Devon gang are now your biggest fans.

Dartington rocked that night it was brilliant and unforgettable.

Thank you!!!

Kate Caddy (28 April 2016)

I booked the Loose Cannons for a corporate function at the Great Hall, University of Exeter after they were recommended to me and I was not disappointed; the band had a big visual impact, big sound and made a big impression on everyone at the event!

Steven Purcell, Flybe (03 February 2016)

Just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you for your great performance on Friday evening!

I have had lots of brilliant feedback from our guests who were really impressed and they had a great time.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!

Amy Furlong, Exeter Castle (16 December 2015)

The Loose Cannons are ... amazing!

We celebrated our wedding just over two months ago and our ears are still ringing, our feet still tapping and the heart still wanting more of the music. They were professional from the outset and utterly fantastic with the set list, changing songs, giving us versions and accommodating a vast breadth of music.

Their energy on stage must be seen to be believed, it is extraordinary and the ultimate tonic to even those who always say 'I can't dance'. Even they were up until the small hours.
My wife and I were so thrilled to have such a fun, courteous, professional and experienced band at the wedding. Music is always remembered at parties, our thank you letters can attest to this being point in case!

Our huge thanks to you all, you were beyond all we had hoped and more.

The Loose Cannons could light up any night, of that we have no doubt.

R & R Forsyth (29 November 2015)

Having seen Loose Cannons headline at Dartmouth Regatta a number of years ago I knew they would be the perfect choice for our carnival event and they didn't disappoint, in fact everyone who came along we're raving about them for weeks! So much so we have booked them again for next year.

The band are professional from the outset, tight knit both instrumentally and vocally. The range of songs on their playlist means there really is something for everyone, you can't help but get in the party spirit!

Bradworthy Carnival Committee (21 October 2015)

You guys were on another level, smashed all expectations out of the park. Please pass on my wholehearted thanks to all the band.

Rory and Rachel (10 October 2015)

I've been meaning to email you guys since we got back from honeymoon but life and work just seems to have sucked us back in!

You guys were just fabulous! So many people have said have wonderful you were, such fun and we LOVED the dancing!

Thank you for everything! You guys we fab!

Claire and Dan (01 October 2015)

Everyone has been raving about how good you guys were and how much they enjoyed themselves, so much so they have requested we ask if you would be willing to perform for us again next year


Bradworthy Carnival (29 September 2015)


Everyone was raving about the band, the bride and groom were really happy and were saying what a good find the band was and you were perfect for a posh wedding!

I didn't stop dancing all night (my legs still hurt), in fairness that's not unusual for me but it is for my husband who never dances honestly weve been together for 18 years and I've never seen him willingly dance before!

Kym (21 September 2015)

A long overdue note to thank you all so much for making Saturday evening such a success - we have had so many messages from people who came, all saying how much they had enjoyed the evening. It ended up raising 3,500 for Rowcroft Hospice which is a fantastic sum.

I know that it was the draw of having Loose Cannons there that ensured we sold so many tickets and that made it such a fun evening.

Please do pass on our thanks to the rest of the band - very much look forward to seeing you play again soon (I will have to try and think up a reasonable excuse for a party!).

Thank you again for all your help,

Kirsten, Ilsington (25 July 2015)

Hi John.

We had the Loose Cannons in 2014 for the Honiton Spring Ball, everyone loved the band so much, they wanted it all to happen again. Within a week we had booked you again for this year, June 13 2015.

Yet again everyone said it was a brilliant night and the band made it a wonderful night. Thank you again for your brilliant performance and thank you for you kind donation to FORCE Cancer Charity.

Needless to say the band is booked for October 3rd 2016 at Lakeview Manor again. Well done all of you, many thanks.

Glenda and Sue xxx (26 June 2015)

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding, everyone said how brilliant you were! We will always recommend you and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Gemma and Brett (19 June 2015)

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for such a fantastic evening on Saturday! We had the best day and it was topped off by the best evening we could have wanted :-)

Everyone thought you were fantastic and I was told by the owner of Cranberries that they have never had a wedding up there before where everyone got up to dance!

Thank you so much you really made it extra special for us.

Gem and Paul (11 June 2015)

We searched high and low for bands for our wedding and having looked at all those in the south - as far away as London - The Loose Cannons stood out from day one. Which was handy as they were right on our doorstep!

Right from the word go they were brilliant to work with, kindly letting us listen to their practices and trade ideas on which songs would make the final playlist.

On the day itself they were fantastic - super organised and great company.

When the band stuck up, the dancefloor filled immediately and it stayed that way until their closing number. All ages were up and dancing, and the band played everything from funk and soul to some great pop numbers. They even let Jack sing a number with them!

We would 110% recommend Loose Cannons for anyone looking for a brilliant band, be it a wedding, birthday or any other celebration. Such happy memories of the day - thank you so much.

Jack and Rosie Stamp (02 June 2015)

As mother-of-the-bride I want to say a big thank you to Loose Cannons for their massive contribution to a wonderful day for Rosie and Jack you were amazing, and what Pete and I really like is that you all look as if you are having a really great time throughout your set. Thank you so very much for being part of a dream wedding for them both.

There were quite a few musicians amongst the guests (as well as Jack!) and they thought you were brilliant. The crowded dance floor spoke volumes.

Thank you so very much, and no wonder you are really booked up for the rest of the year. We hope to see you at Ilsington in July.

Melanie (01 June 2015)

'I have been meaning to write all week to say how fantastic you all were at our friend,Rosie and Jack's wedding in Lustleigh last weekend - it was a great wedding but the band absolutely made the evening and everyone had such a great time dancing to the bitter end.'

'Kirsten' (01 June 2015)

Just wanted to say thank you to you and all the Loose Cannons for our wedding yesterday. It was a wonderful occasion topped off by some truly fantastic music.

The band were once again out of this world, everyone was singing their praises.

I hope the band enjoyed themselves as much as Jen and I did. The day would not have been the same without them!!!!

James & Jen (26 April 2015)


I just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed the band on Saturday. I have had great feedback about the band and, although accountants are generally rather slow to get up on the dance floor, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Thank you once again for a great performance!

Tracey at Thomas Westcott (14 March 2015)

On behalf of the Holly Ball committee and our 1150 guests I would like to thank John and the rest of the band for yet another fantastic evening.

The performance was flawless and insured a packed dance floor throughout the night.

A particular thanks to the guys behind the scenes for providing excellent sound and lighting and insuring a smooth set up and breakdown after the event.

The overall experience The Loose Cannons provide from start to finish is second to none

Gary Spencer (Torquay Rowing Club) (25 December 2014)

The Loose Cannons made our wedding so special and something for everyone to remember.

They got everyone up dancing and it was an energetic, fun end to the evening.

If you are looking for a talented, professional outfit who are vibrant, fun and engaging then 'The Loose Cannons' are perfect for your event.

Josh and Amie (22 November 2014)

A massive thank you for a night of fantastic entertainment! I danced my socks off! We hope you had as much fun as we all did.

Hope to see you you again soon.

Kirstin Martin (27 October 2014)

On behalf of all of us at Exeter Drama Company can I say a huge THANK YOU to you and the band for making our 60th anniversary party go with such a bang. Everyone I spoke to was delighted with the whole party and agreed that you were the icing on the cake.

As a drama company we're used to dressing up but this was the most fun we've ever had with our clothes on!

Ian, Exeter Drama Company (31 August 2014)

Massive thanks for the gig on Saturday.

Yet again you smashed it.

James Lowe (The Maypole - PMA community pub of the year) (10 July 2014)

I just wanted to say what a great job the band did on Saturday night. The whole evening was fantastic from our point of view and the enthusiasm of the singers and the rest of the band was outstanding!! I think you might be getting a booking from the venue on the back of it?!

It was good as well that your set up guys were flexible and were able to fit in around me and my projector, etc.

Please pass on our thanks to everyone and tell them how much we enjoyed it.

Chris Laycock (23 June 2014)

Hello all,

My husband and I would like to say a flippin' massive THANK YOU for making our wedding party so epic! Every guest told us how fantastic you were and even though there wasn't room on the dance floor for all of them, people were singing, toe tapping or throwing shapes in any available space!

You guys were the icing on top of a perfect day. The sound was awesome, you were full of energy and we loved every second. We probably should apologise for some of the embarrassing dance moves that were displayed, but really it's a tribute to you that people were so lost in the music! That's the story we're telling anyway...!

We would like to also say an extra special thank you for learning Never Too Much for us. You absolutely nailed it!!

Sion and I would ALSO like to say thanks for putting up with us both being at rehearsals with you and for giving us our 3 minutes of fame. It was an absolute honour to play with you.

Extra big thank you to Benni, Andy & Andy for their time and dedication to us over the whole weekend. Because of them, the speeches, the 'mega mix' and your live sets all went smoothly. In addition, they made the Tipis look better than we could have imagined both with the stage and all the lighting. Immense.

I know we're biased, but our love of you is as genuine as it gets and from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for being a part of a day we'll remember for the rest of our lives.

Sion & Caroline Kemp xx (29 May 2014)

Hi you wonderful people!

We would just like to say once again THANK YOU for making Caroline and Sion's wedding such a fantastic event on Saturday.

All the guests were blown away by you and we couldn't have asked for better entertainment to complete such a special day.

You are an epic, talented group of people and we are really grateful to you for giving your time and energy to entertain us all.

Thanks again.

Jill & Tony Hulatt (26 May 2014)


Just wanted to email and thank you and the band for playing such a great gig at our wedding on the 19th April. We have had so many people comment on how good you all were and we are delighted that you were able to play.

We have seen the Loose Cannons several times now at various events and weddings and you never fail to get the party going. The atmosphere at our wedding was awesome! Loved the new songs as well which you have added to your set list, especially 'Happy'!

Finally, thank you for being so helpful and making all the preparations so straightforward.

Best wishes to you all

Becky and Matt x (02 May 2014)

Sue and I wanted to say what an amazing night we had.

Thank you so much to The Loose Cannons, we have raised 6000 which is staggering.

The band are all so professional and friendly. You are not the cheapest band, but you are the best and worth every penny. You are all clearly doing it for the love of the music not the money.

Everyone had a fantastic night and want us to do it again on June 13th 2015.

Glen and Sue xx (16 March 2014)

Thank you so much for performing at our wedding.

We had so many fantastic comments from guests and plenty of sore feet in the morning!

Looking forward to booking you again sometime.

Rachel and Ben Vince xx (12 March 2014)

Just wanted to thank you guys so much for the wonderful job you did on my 'Casino Royale' evening, everyone is raving about you guys!

Sam Burstow (08 January 2014)

A huge thank you to the Loose Cannons for making our Christmas party a night to remember! Nothing but amazing feedback from all of the guests and everyone up and dancing all night long!!

An incredible band, fantastic music and I wouldn't recommend anyone else!!

Thank you again for a fantastic night and for being so accommodating to us and helpful to me!

Hannah Davis (14 December 2013)

A 'big thank you' for Saturday - you all made the evening very special and contributed to its success.

Yet again the band made our 8th Annual Black Tie Charity Ball at the Palace Hotel, Torquay a fantastic evening with everyone dancing the night away and if the guests had their way would have made them stay longer!!

Thank you all once again and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to other organisers.

Joyce & Sarah (28 September 2013)

We've only just returned from honeymoon but one of the first things we wanted to do was send a thank you to the Loose Cannons for the set you played at our wedding.

So many of our guests have been raving about the music you make, and the way you embrace the party!

Personally I've got some great memories of the huge conga line carving up the entire marquee, your brass section popping up on various parts of the dance floor, and the elaborate drum roll prior to Christie's launching of the bouquet and our departure.

I also want to say a big thank you for the way you played our first dance, its not a well-known one so I appreciate it would have taken some rehearsing. We were so happy with the way you all performed it!

Robin & Christie (25 August 2013)

Hi Loose Cannons!

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for performing at our wedding on Saturday! You guys were literally incredible!

Love Steve and Kirsty xxx (05 August 2013)

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to the band for an epic performance on the 13th!

We had an awesome time and you were brilliant! I know our guests loved it and I'm sure everyone is recommending you guys to their friends!

Nicola and Jess (04 August 2013)

THANK YOU once again for a fabulous night. Glenn and I received some fab feedback last night and this morning:

1 - If I won the lottery I'd book this band every weekend!
2 - This band aren't good, they are ****ing awesome. I've seen some fab bands in my time, but these top the lot
3 - Each song was done to perfection
4 - The best night I've had for a very long time

There were a lot of number 4 comments!! They'll be talking about it for a long time.

Julia and Glenn (27 July 2013)

Hi Ian.

Just a quick message to say thank you to yourself and the band for an awesome set at our evening wedding do!! We had such a good time and have had nothing but great comments about yourselves from everyone who attended.

Our 1st dance song covered by you and the band was excellent and a moment we will both never forget. Thank you again.

We wish you guys all the best for the future and we will definitely be keeping a beedy eye open for any future dates you're playing that we can attend!

Take it easy.

Dan and Suz (10 June 2013)

Hi guys,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding bash on 1 June.

The feedback from the guests was brilliant, everyone had an amazing time.

Hope to see you again soon!

Steve and Pauline (05 June 2013)

I just wanted to thank you for playing so well at our wedding on the 11th of May. All the guests really enjoyed your music and said that you were an excellent band!

It particularly made a special day for us that little bit extra special.

We were especially pleased with your cover of our first song 'crack the shutters', many thanks.

Zoe and Ben (24 May 2013)

I would like to thank you so much for all your hard work last night. Could you please thank all of the band members for me, they were fantastic and we all danced the night away to our hearts content.

We managed to raise the great sum of 2300 for the hunt - so thank you again.

I hope that we can work together again in the near future.

Tiverton Hunt Ball (12 May 2013)

Can I just say say how amazing the band were!! Ive had endless comments how the band were just incredible and now how people want to book them in the future.

It was a brilliant night, I couldnt wished for any better. Thank you ever so much.

Laura Clark (04 May 2013)

Torquay Boys' Grammar School Parent Association Spring Ball 2013 (held at The Grand Hotel Torquay)

We changed the date of The Spring Ball in order to secure the booking of our chosen band The Loose Cannons. They came highly recommended and we certainly made the right decision. The dance floor was packed from the moment they started playing until they finished - literally our guests danced the night away.

If you're looking for a brilliant band, look no further!

The Spring Ball Committee (01 May 2013)

Just to say what a fantastic night we all had at my 'O' birthday party.

I had a wonderful evening only down to you all, thank you once more you were fantastic!

Sally Priestnall (02 March 2013)

An enormous thank you again to the Loose Cannons who, by popular demand, were invited back for the second year for the Churston Ferrers Grammar School 'Grand Night Out'.

Your return appearance was again a huge success and made for an evening which truly lived up to its name. The fact that you fill the dance floor from the start to the finish of an evening (and leave the guests demanding a return to the stage at the end) is a measure of the way in which you really engage with the audience, the range of music that you include, but above all, the quality of your performance.

Great musicians, great entertainers, a great band which I can thoroughly recommend if you are organising an event.

Thank you to you all for a thoroughly enjoyable event and for your help with our fund raising.

Sue Gunn-Johnson (Deputy Head) CFGS (06 February 2013)

Congratulations to you and the band for last nights performance at the Grand, I thought you were fantastic!

Ken Osburn (03 February 2013)

With huge thanks for making the evening so successful on Saturday 24 Nov at Seale Hayne - amazing music, fun & energy as always!! Let me say also a big thank you from the children who will benefit from the outdoor activities throughout the year as a result of your generosity! Lots of love Penny

Penny Weekes (24 November 2012)

Thank you for a fantastic night last night for Glenn's 40th. Every single person thought you were excellent and a couple of comments we've had were 'top party, top band'.

You're brilliant, and we want to book you again ... we'll talk to Ian L!!

Thank you so much - you made our night :)

Glenn & Julia (01 October 2012)

I would just like to say how pleased my wife and I were with the band on Saturday night. Got everyone up dancing and made our wedding day. Everyone was saying how good the band was!

Hope our paths cross again at weddings in the future.

Henry & George (18 September 2012)

Thank you so much again for playing at our wedding, you made our evening do and everyone was raving about you guys afterwards! Will definitely recommend you to everyone! Hopefully catch you at a gig over the summer somewhere!

Rosie and Ben x (20 July 2012)

We were at Seale-Hayne on Saturday night (June 23rd) and had a FAB time. You were all amazing. We haven't had some much fun at a party/gig since we were students (25 yrs ago!!)

Hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did, you certainly seemed to be.

Thanks for a truly memorable evening.

Sarah & Neil Fricker (25 June 2012)

My wife and I (still not bored of saying that) would like to say a huge thank you to all the Cannons for their performance at our wedding on 2nd June.

We are also very grateful to you for letting our friend join you to sing our first dance song.

All of your musicians and vocalists were outstanding and really created the perfect atmosphere for our special day.

Finally thanks to my new brother in law Jeff for helping to organise everything and for his first class ivory tinkling.

We had a wonderful day and you guys played a big part in making it that way.

Mathew and Claire Watts (20 June 2012)


Thank you so so much, you did the most amazing job on the 26th for our big day!!!!!!

Alex and I had an amazing time. You guys really pulled it out of the bag for WOW factor for our 1st dance, thank you so much for sorting everything exactly as we wanted it to be! I think the shock factor was huge and by all accounts it was breath taking!!

To go straight from the 1st dance being quite sombre, to having the dance floor heaving in seconds was a true testament to how professionally and exquisitely you guys pitch to your audience! From start to finish you were fantastic!

Well done! I really hope you are playing at Dartmouth again this year, can't wait to actually see you all, rather than have to do the wedding day thing of talking to everyone! Boring..... I'd have far preferred to be on the dance floor with you!!!

So many huge thank you's.

Sarah and Alex (12 June 2012)

Thank you so much for playing so amazingly at our wedding. We absolutely loved it and you created such a great atmosphere, not to mention a packed dancefloor, I for one didn't leave it all night!

We have had so many people say to us that our band were the best ever so thank you for being so brilliant, you really made our wedding the legendary party we wanted it to be!

Please send our thanks to all the members of the band (I cant remember all their names!), they were all exceptional. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks.

Belinda and Chris (07 June 2012)

Dear Loose Cannons.

We were fortunate enough to hear you all play at the Sadek / Cruwys wedding on 19th May 2012 at Cruwys Morchard and I have to say that you were absolutely outstanding. Everyone danced throughout your whole set and had a thoroughly enjoyable night. Thanks for creating such a good vibe and making a memorable night for us all. I hope that I have the opportunity to see you play again.

David Young (04 June 2012)

Hi Ian and the rest of the band!

Dan and I wanted to say a big big thank you to you all for making our wedding extra special. Everyone got up to dance and we have had so many comments saying how good you were - It was just the party atmosphere we wanted.

Thank you again and we look forward to boogying away to the loose cannons beats at some other events shortly!

Gemma & Daniel Newsome (14 May 2012)

The Tiverton Foxhounds had a night to remember forever!

As soon as you started playing instantly everyone jumped to their feet and danced the night away - People haven't stopped talking about the night since and they all thought you were all amazing.

Thank you so much for giving us such a great night.

Sarah Emmett (13 May 2012)

I am now back from honeymoon, and would really like to thank you all for making our night such an enjoyable one!

It was really important to us for eveyone to get involved in the evening celebrations and we knew you were the band to do the job! Everyone in the band shows such enthusiasm and enjoyment at being on stage that it is infectious. I have had so much good feedback and it finished off our day a treat to dance all night!

Thank you again and I hope to see you throughout the summer to continue the boogie!!

Kathryn and Dave (23 April 2012)

Hi Ray and and the rest of the band,

We were really looking forward to having you entertain at our wedding and we were not disappointed. You make it more enjoyable because you all enjoy what you do, the dance floor was not empty for the whole time you were on stage.

We could not have chosen a better band and it made our day even more memorable.

I would book again without hesitation and in fact enjoyed it so much we are thinking of holding a party in a years time and inviting you back!

Thank you all so much,

Stuart & Amanda (09 March 2012)

What a fantastic night out!

We booked the Loose Cannons as a school fund-raiser. The music was superb and the band were really engaging - they seemed to enjoy themselves as much as we did!

Everyone danced all night and we made a 4 figure sum.

Bob Owers, Headteacher, Churston Ferrers Grammar School (12 February 2012)

A quick email to say thank you so much for Friday night.

As always you were all fantastic and everyone had a brilliant evening - I have never seen so many people on the dance floor!

All of the band seemed to be in great spirits which was brilliant to watch!

Alison Blackler, Comms Manager, University of Exeter (09 January 2012)

Dear John and all the Loose Cannons.

I am writing to thank you and everyone for so generously giving of your time and incredible talent ay the Loose Cannons Ball; what a fantastic night! Everybody enjoyed it and can't wait for the next one!

You all gave so much energy to preparing for the night, selling tickets, setting up and performing. We are all so touched that it was for Hannahs and Challenge Ahead @Hannahs.

What a huge success it was. It makes us so proud to see Hannahs brought to life by people like you. We have done all our totting up of the night and you raised an incredible total of over 4060!

Once again, thank you so much to you all.

Best wishes

Bronwen Hewitt, Chief Executive, Hannahs @Seale-Hayne (01 December 2011)

'Awesome', 'Amazing' 'Fantastic' just some of the comments from a great night where everyone was rocking to the music and didn't want to leave the floor!

Thank you all so much and we will recommend you whenever we can.

Joyce & Sarah - Help for Heroes/Macmillan Cancer Support Ball 2011 (27 October 2011)

Just a quick mail to say, thank you to you and all of the cannons for a fab night!!

Every one has been phoning and emailing me to say how much they enjoyed the ball and especially your part in it!!!

We appreciate all the effort you put in and your support of our fund raising and we hope to do it all again next year!!!

Once again many thanks

Janet, Torbay Breast Unit fundraiser. (24 October 2011)

A huge


... from me and everyone trying to get Seale-Hayne off the ground.

The band is amazing and the surprise donation at the end of the evening was just fantastic, it completely caught me off guard!

Lovely, lovely, lovely! Can't wait for the next event!

Bronwyn Hewitt CEO, Hannahs at Seale-Hayne (12 September 2011)

I can not find the words to describe how amazing you guys were, everyone was asking me where we found you.

The music was fantastic and as a result the dance floor was packed the whole time.

You guys were so professional, thank you is not enough!!!!

I have no hesitation in recommending you, so send people my way if they want a personal recommendation.

You made our night sensational, thank you thank you thank you :)

Nathalie Sinclair (30 August 2011)

We were at Harry and Louise's wedding last night and I wanted to say how much we loved your amazing performance. We could have danced all night!

You played with huge talent, energy, humour and a love for what you were doing, which inspired us to get down and boogie big time!

What a fantastic night we all had thanks to the Loose Cannons. Great variety of songs and interesting arrangements (loved the speeded up version of A-ha's Take On Me).

I hope we'll hear you play again sometime. Good luck and well done on a great gig last night.

Sophie and Bent Isachsen (17 July 2011)

Wanted to thank you for a great evening on Saturday 25th June 2011 at Brooke & Gemma's Wedding. We thought you were fantastic & would highly recommend you!

Joanne Corner (25 June 2011)

Thank you so much for making our party go with a swing! Everybody said what a fantastic band and a great mix of music. You appeal to young and old alike.

Even though our venue was a bit on the small side to fit you all in you sorted it out in no time!

Great musicians... great singers... we would thoroughly recommend you as a superb addition to any event.

Thank you again.

Lopes (24 June 2011)

Were guests at Emily and Richards wedding last night. Wanted to let you know what a fantastic evening it was, the band were amazing. Just visited the web site to see where we can see you again.

Thanks for a fab evening!

Carole Hartley (29 May 2011)

The Loose Cannons - Where to start, what an amazing band. To a man woman and child we were all up dancing the night away. The weather was not on our side so we needed to make sure the evening was perfect. The Cannons were superb. Great singers and musicians combining seamlessly. I just wish they could have played all weekend!

We had a little trouble with our power supply but thanks to some quick thinking and some even quicker action Benni the technician from the Cannons was able to rectify the situation. So we can honestly say they saved the day.

We have already been back on their web site to find out when we can see them next. Bring on Dartmouth regatta.

Once again can't say it enough THANK YOU.

Emily and Rich (28 May 2011)

I just wanted to say thank you very much for Saturday night, the band were amazing and everybody at the wedding thought so. Our 18 month old son is officially your biggest fan I think, he didn't stop dancing the whole time you were on!

Thanks again.

Lisa & Darren (17 May 2011)

On behalf of my husband and I and all family and friends we want to THANK YOU ALL for a very special evening. You truly were amazing and unforgettable. We loved the personal touch at the end of the evening where you all surrounded us on the dance floor playing the last song. Words really cannot describe how amazing and talented you all are!

Thank you Loose Cannons for making our wedding day complete.

Mr & Mrs Spencer (08 May 2011)

Fantastic night dancing to a fantastic band!! Probably the greatest band I have ever had the pleasure of listening to, you were amazing and really looked like you were having a great time up there, Thank you!

Vic Bimson (01 May 2011)

A huge thank you to each and every one of the Loose Cannons who made our wedding party a night to remember forever. Words cannot express how thankful we were to have chosen you and how brilliant you were. The first dance which you learnt for us (and kept a surprise from Andrew) was just perfect.

There was also a moment during the evening when I just sat at the back of the party and watched as nearly every single person was up on the dance floor dancing, having a fantastic time and completely wrapped up in your music. Guests were telling us that they didn't usually dance but just had to get to their feet! We also both loved our surprise at the end and it just made the evening complete.

You were worth every penny and you have been a joy to work with, incorporating our requests and working to our changes in timings!

THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts and keep doing what you're doing, you're brilliant and we hope to book you again very soon.

Julie & Andrew Searle (25 March 2011)

I just want to say a huge thank you for Saturday night, everyone thought you were fantastic, and my feet are still hurting from dancing so much, you absolutely made our night and everyone is still talking about how good you are!!

Ryan thought the first dance song was outstanding as did I, he was wondering if you ever recorded it and if you have we would love a copy?

Thanks again for helping make our wedding day one of the best ever.

Erin (01 March 2011)

Thank you so much for last night. The band were fantastic and everyone absolutely loved it. I have had so many people saying how good the band were!!

Thank you!

Rosie Crossley (16 January 2011)

Thank you for another superb evening.

This was the second time we had booked the Loose Cannons and we were not disappointed.

All the feedback I have received from the 280 odd staff who attended the Ball has been fantastic and I would highly recommend you for anyone's event.

Met Office Christmas Ball (11 January 2011)

You guys are amazing!

I would recommend to book the loose cannons, a truly amazing, all round, fantastic band to have, who get everyone dancing, they are really so talented and make for an awesome evening!

Many thanks and hope to see you soon

Hannah Murray (10 January 2011)

John, the Loose Cannons Band and crew.

On behalf of all of us here in Christow, thanks so very much for

a) taking the positive decision to go ahead with the Cannon Ball here on Saturday, despite the weather (minus 11 here at 1am!) and

b) providing us and everyone who made the effort to get here with such a cracking evening.

The whole event was amazing. Thanks to everyone. Come again soon!

Happy Christmas and New Year.


Philip & Jill Arthur (21 December 2010)

The Loose Cannons,

Thank you very much for playing at our wedding reception. You rounded off a fantastic day and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the band.

Real Gone Kid was amazing, thank you for learning that for us.

Robert and Jane (10 December 2010)

My wife and I would like to say a massive thank you to The Loose Cannons for bringing such exciting entertainment to our special day! We were blown away by their sound, stage presence and overall professionalism throughout the evening, as well as taking the time to learn our first dance song, which wasn't part of their original repertoire. All the guests said you were just amazing!

We cannot recommend this band highly enough and anyone seeking a first rate function band should check out The Loose Cannons Band; you surely will not be disappointed. In fact, we were so impressed, we can't wait to see you guys again on Saturday 18 December 2010!!!

Seth and Louise Dunnett xx (14 November 2010)


What an absolutely fantastic band in every way. We booked you because we wanted a great dance after the Wedding Blessing celebrations at Dartington. From the start you were all so helpful and we came to hear a rehearsal and were completely hooked! Your set-up fitted around our day and when we came in to the Wedding Breakfast all was ready and looking very professional.

A thirteen piece band like yours looks very impressive but when you began to play it was brilliant. People were up on that floor the minute the "First Dance" ended and the dancing continued all night. The sound you make is so good and everyone said you were the best band they had ever had at a party, wedding or anywhere. I have to admit to being unable to sit down in case I missed another great number. Some of the family who never dance were up there bopping away. Your interaction with the guests was fun, your outfits (especially the sparkly jackets) were appreciated and when you mingled with the guests on the dance floor and continued playing, it was such a laugh.

I would like to say a massive thank you for making our day even more special. I wouldn't hesitate to book you again. In fact I'm desperate to book you again ! All our friends and family also send their thanks and best wishes and wish you all Good Luck for the future.

Regards, Ann, Andy, Dan and Saipin Strutt xxx (14 October 2010)

The Loose Cannons are certainly something special, and helped create the perfect wedding celebration.

There wasn't one guest who didn't describe the band as 'amazing'!!

Myself, and I'm sure all my guests, would recommend The Loose Cannons for any event with exceptional quality of the music delivered with a personal approach.

Spencer Quick (02 October 2010)

To Ian and all the Loose Cannons Band.

I Just wanted to drop you a line before we skip off on honeymoon, to say a massive thank you to all of you for such a fantastic evening on Saturday. I was a little apprehensive having not heard you play before our wedding night, but I was soon put at ease when I glanced up and saw my new inlaws dancing to your warm up song! The dance floor was constantly filled from that point onwards with guests of all ages, this being thanks to your great range of music. The feedback I have received has been mega, mostly with 'where did you find them?' and 'where can we see them again?'. So a huge thank you Loose Cannons you really were the perfect end to a perfect day.

Janine & Toby (03 August 2010)

Fantastic performance from the band!! Got everyone up singing and dancing, and we have had nothing but positive feedback from our guests!!

You are now booked for next year, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone!!

Helped Wooden Spoon once again 'stir smiles' and raise money for children who are disadvantaged either physically, mentally or socially in Devon. Thanks again and here's to next year!

Kevin Norris - Wooden Spoon Charity Summer Ball (10 July 2010)

Dear all involved with the Loose Cannons Band ...

WOW!! Thank you so much for such an amazing end to a fantastic day. I have never heard so much praise for a band as I have for you ... our first song was incredible and sang perfectly. You were all amazing and we will definitely be spreading the word!

Mr and Mrs Mel and Tom Burden (02 July 2010)

Brilliant performance by a brilliant band!! The band got everyone up singing and dancing, and we had so much positive feedback from our guests!! This is the second time we have booked the band for our bi-annual ball, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these guys to anyone!! A favorite with many young farmers!!

Thanks for an awesome night, looking forward to seeing you all again soon!!!

Becky Grist - Cheriton & Tedburn YFC (Grand Ball) (30 June 2010)

Amazing performance from a very professional group. Everyone had a great night singing and dancing along, it was a great end to our day. Thank you!

Personally we would like to thank you and the band for all the hard work you put in behind the scenes so that everyone can have a great time.

Nick and Claire Porter (28 May 2010)

You guys were fantastic, completed our day and would do anything to have it back again, every guest commented on your performance and I think the numbers on the dance floor (and chairs) confirmed everyone's enjoyment.

All the very best thanks a million and cant wait to see you again really soon.

Nikki and Rich (18 May 2010)

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful performance by The Loose Cannons!

You were all brilliant and we had so many comments from our guests about how fantastic you were. It was really was the icing on the cake at the end of a perfect day!

Charlotte Bardell (29 April 2010)

I thought I would wait a day or two before emailing you as I wanted to get some feedback from the members who danced the night away!

Simply, the Band was excellent in all respects and the evening was great fun! So thank you all of you very much indeed.

Monique Bertoni (03 March 2010)

Can you pass on my thanks to all the band members for your great entertainment at the dinner last Friday.

It was a real pleasure to hear you all and to enjoy music played so enthusiastically with great aplomb.

James Cross, President - Devon and Somerset Law Society (02 March 2010)

The band was AMAZING! So many people have said to us that they are the best band that they have ever heard at a wedding, and the proof is in how much everyone danced - they loved it, as did Dan and I (once we'd got our first dance over with!).

The girls vs boys dance off was a huge hit, as was the grand finale of the band coming into the crowd, no one had seen anything like it before and they thought it was great fun.

I can't wait to have another reason to hire the Loose Cannons again - we will be coming to one of your gigs in 2010!!

Alice Burrage (21 January 2010)

Thank you once again on behalf of Event Exeter for providing fantastic performances which all of our customers enjoyed!

They were particular impressed when the band came off the stage and danced around them!

Alison Blackler, Event Exeter (14 January 2010)

I was at the Great Hall on Friday and was very impressed! Your singers are really good, how do you find these people? All three should be working professionally.

And you got the sound right, much better than Seth Lakeman on Monday.

The band is bloody good!!

Peter Stephens (15 December 2009)

Brilliant band!

Great play list and truly infectious enjoyment spills from the stage.

The Loose Cannons Band are a must to get everyone up and dancing. Our friends are still asking about them and where they can see them playing next!

Liz Drummond (08 December 2009)

What a fantastic band.... we booked them as soon as we set the date of our wedding and would have moved the date if they weren't free! Don't have a disco have the Loose Cannons they will have everyone on the dance floor and are the nicest bunch out there.

Look forward to seeing them again soon....take care guys.

Emma & David Richardson (19 October 2009)

We had a wonderful wedding day and thought the band were brilliant!! All of our friends and family had a great time and really enjoyed the bands performance.

Thank you once again.

James and Helen (26 September 2009)

We had a great time... so many comments from guests who just loved it all. Thank you so much for your great band - we will certainly be after you again should we do another party/wedding.

Please thank all the members - you made the whole evening fantastic. Just wish it could have gone on longer - but all good things have to come to an end!!!

Deborah Chave (08 September 2009)

I wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and the rest of the band for your professionalism, flexibility and above all your amazing performance.

Abi and I have been inundated with praise for you guys and we are so glad you were able to part of our big day.

I hope you all enjoyed it also with the forward rolls, break dancing and audience participation - it was quite an event all round!

Paul & Abi Bates (13 August 2009)

Everyone had a fantastic evening the band was absolutely superb, people were saying how much they enjoyed it. I think you had everyone dancing by the middle of your second song!

Thank you very much for making every ones evening and giving both Alex and Becky the perfect end to a perfect day.

Walter Longden (18 July 2009)

I would like to say a a huge thank you to yourself and the rest of the band for last night. The music was fantastic and everybody really enjoyed it. We look forward to working with you again soon!

Alison Blackler, Event Exeter (17 June 2009)

I just want to thank you and all the Loose Cannons Band for playing so magnificently at my recent birthday party in April.

Everybody loved your music and I've had loads of letters saying how much people enjoyed it all. You are now famous in Malaysia and Thailand as well!!

I have passed your name on to lots of friends who were there that night, and are interested in having you to play at their functions in the future.

Good luck to you all, you really MADE my party.

Hilary Wright (12 June 2009)

Thank's to you and all the band for another great night from the Loose Cannons. It all went perfect it was a great night for the club the best ever end of season Dinner and dance!

Mark Underhill (07 June 2009)

Thanks to all the guys in The Loose Cannons. Superb evening entertainment for our wedding, couldn't have asked for anything more.

After trawling through Devon and Somerset for a band it was great to finally find The Loose Cannons, just what we wanted for the evening of our wedding. As soon as we met everyone we knew that it was the right decision. A really friendly bunch that enjoy what they do and are really good at it too.

Ian has been fantastic throughout the planning of our wedding and a special thanks to everyone for letting my Dad rehearse with you and sing the first song and even more thanks for taking the time to learn it for us, it really made our night.

All round fun bunch of people who know how to entertain, I just wish I had more time to dance!

All our guests commented on what a good evening was had and that the music from the band was top notch and I think the girls caused a stir with some of our male guests.

100% recommend Loose Cannons to anyone... wedding, anniversary, work do... so adaptable they'll fit in anywhere.

Thanks to you all.

Emma Hewlett (04 June 2009)

The loose cannons were excellent. They really helped to round off what was a superb evening all round.

Stephen Whyte, University Of Exeter (14 April 2009)

Can you please pass on my thanks and those of the entire guest list at the event on Tuesday night to you and the band members for providing us with outstanding entertainment on 31 March at our Gala Dinner.

There were literally dozens of comments and queries about the band - where you were based, what you charged, if you travelled. We put a leaflet in all the delegate bags until we ran out, so I very much hope that you get some contacts and gigs as a result.

Thank you again for all that you did and best wishes to the band members - the new line up is a real winner - you were worth every penny!

Annie Broadbent, Conference Co-ordinator, SWiP Conference 2009 (02 April 2009)

What can I say, The Loose Cannons playing in TK Maxx who would have thought it!! I would like to say thank you Loose Cannons for generously giving up your time and so willingly supporting us, to raise heaps of money for Comic Relief.

The sales of Official Comic Relief Stella McCartney t-shirts (as modelled by the three sexy singers) went through the roof while the band were playing and we smashed our daily charity sales record!! The monies raised for the day came to total over 1700, a fantastic achievement!

Anyone wanting top quality entertainment for a memorable event, book this band now as you will not be disappointed!!

Carl Knight, Manager, TK Maxx (11 March 2009)

Hey Guys ...

You played for us at the Pavilion on valentines night and I just want to say you were absolutely amazing. Made the night so much more enjoyable. Your singers are absolutely amazing and the musicians just topped it all off. Thank you and I hope to see you again next year!!

Jordan Trick (19 February 2009)

A huge thanks John and all the guys and girls in the band for a fantastic thrash on Saturday 1st November. We've had fantastic feedback from everyone who was there.

Mustang Sally will be etched on my memory for ever!

A huge thanks to all of you. We'll be spreading the word about the Loose Cannons... book them now!

Philip Arthur (04 November 2008)

Thank you so much to all of the Loose Cannons for being such a huge part in making our big day extra-special.

Your rendition of 'All That You Are' was better than the original and we really appreciate all the hard work put into learning it for us.

Everyone has commented on how brilliant you all were - from teenagers to grannies the dancefloor was packed all night - and we're so pleased you had as much fun as we did!

Clare Bayliss (15 October 2008)

Just want to say a huge Thank you for friday night! Everyone had a fab time and are gob smacked how great you guys were. You appealed to everyone which in our company is highly commendable! Brilliant!

Thank you again and no doubt we will be using again in the future!

Rebecca Macey, Landmark Information Group (22 September 2008)

I just wanted to thank you all for an absolutely fantastic evening at the firm's 20th anniversary celebration. Everybody has made a point of saying how amazing the band was. As we had people there from 18 to 70, all of whom were on the dance floor at some point during the evening, that's a brilliant achievement. We would not hesitate to book you again.

Jonathan Langdon (01 August 2008)

We just wanted to drop you a line to say THANK YOU SO MUCH! We couldn't have wished for more at our wedding reception. Great performance with energy, fun and style. Awesome musicians and singers!!

So many of our guests have said how much they enjoyed getting out on the dance floor during your sets. You made us feel very special on the night. Thanks for doing our song - brilliant! Hope you enjoyed playing it too.

We will recommend you to anyone needing live music as I am sure will all of our guests! Thanks again.

Bruce & Joanne Harnett (28 July 2008)

The feedback is 'wow', 'great band', 'they really enjoyed themselves', 'good choice of music', 'how do I get to go out with any one of the singers' and similar eulogies.

We hope you will be available for our next do.

Value for money - very good.

Tim Baker (17 July 2008)

Thank you for a fantastic performance at our 25th Wedding anniversary.

I have lost count of the number of people who said how much they enjoyed your music. They were still talking about you days later.

David Bone (01 July 2008)

We (The Loose Cannons Band) would like to take this opportunity to thank the guests at the Young Farmers Summer Ball [20th June 2008].

The generator supplying power to the whole event failed 20+ times during the evening, mainly in our sets.

You guys support - singing, cheering, clapping, and good nature kept us going strong all night, especially in the quiet bits!

What a fantastic crowd you were!! We had so much fab feedback from the night - we are chuffed!!

Thank you soooo much!!

The Loose Cannons Band xx (22 June 2008)

We had an SPSA meeting last night and all the feedback was 'great' 'great' 'great'!! ... especially the 2nd set!

Everyone really enjoyed themselves [7th June 2008] and thought that when the guys came down onto the dance floor for the last song, was a really nice touch!

It was also commented that it was a good mix of music – older (as in our era!) classic, dancy stuff with some newer ones.

You may have also noticed that our 'theme' tunes went down rather well as well - very much appreciated, thank you!

Thank you all for a really great evening. We will keep you posted on our future events, we are sure to book you again!

Trudie Burne, on behalf of the SPSA and all the guests at BBB 08 (10 June 2008)

A great night [15 March 2008], with great music, that saw even the most unlikely people dancing like your dad!

Also, a big thank you to the band for being so accommodating when we were setting up to use the stage around them.

Ann Cousins, Events and Communications Placement Officer, EAUC (18 April 2008)

A fantastic night [9th February 2008], great music, the dance floor was packed with every generation - just like the band!

Over 1500 raised A BIG thank you

Matt Rappel, event organiser (12 February 2008)

Sorry I've been so slow in getting back to you and telling what a BLOODY FABULOUS NIGHT [2nd February 2008] YOU ALL MADE IT FOR EVERYONE ... INCREDIBLE!!!!

Rob Mcowan, Exe Sailing Club (08 February 2008)

Just a quick note to thank you very much for playing at the Chudleigh Late Night Shopping event in December.

You were absolutely fantastic and certainly made the event something very special!

Thanks again.

Julie Bannister and all the members of Chudleigh Business Guild (04 January 2008)

... The food was good, the band even better and fantastic to see the young people of SYC having such a good time alongside the old farts. It was great ...

What a brilliant night- can we have the same band next year? They must have been very good because even Jon danced!!

Starcross Yacht Club (07 December 2007)

Just to say a huge thank you to you all for your fantastic performance at my 40th on Saturday [27 October 2007], you were all very professional from the setting up crew to the members of the band, and what a great singer your vocalist is, everybody at the party was very impressed with your performances and we hope you enjoyed the evening too.

Thanks again and we hope to make a venue down there so we hope Duvale Barn will see the Loose Cannons in action again!!!

Mark Underhill (30 October 2007)

Wow, you guys were fantastic!!! I can't tell you how many people were singing your praises after the day [13th October 2007].

Hope you guys enjoyed yourselves and thanks so much. I'll be recommending you to everyone!!

Thanks again,

Bryony and Simon x (22 October 2007)


MASSIVE thanks for the wedding gig at Buckland House [22nd September 2007]. All of our guests have commented on how great the band were. We'd like to add to that, you were brilliant.

Please please make sure everyone that was there gets thanked.


Will & Sam (17 October 2007)

Just wanted to say a big big thank you to you and the band for Saturday night [29th September 2007]. You guys were amazing!! We all had a fab night and everyone commented on how brill you guys were. You made our wedding celebrations the best we could have ever imagined.

- You guys rocked!

Rachel & Russell White (01 October 2007)

On behalf of Debbie & Andy Twemlow and all the guests at their wedding reception, my wife Jayne and I would like to whole heartedly thank you for an absolutely fantastic evening of live entertainment. The whole presence of your band, the vocalists and players, both sets and your interaction with the audience was brilliant.

We can recommend The Loose Cannons as excellent entertainment value. May you have many, many more gigs.

Gavin & Jayne Newell (17 September 2007)

Myself and Zo would just like to express our thanks to you all for playing at our wedding and providing a fantastic evenings entertainment to what was a perfect day. We all thought that your performance was second to none and did a great job of managing to coax everyone onto the dance floor and provide such a wide range of music which kept everyone happy and was really the icing on the cake for us.

We have had numerous positive remarks regarding the band. A number of seasoned musicians who were undertaking a 'critical analysis' (probably too much to drink) of you also echoed similar remarks. One of our favourite parts was in 'Walking on Sunshine' when the brass section detached themselves from the band and undertook a reconnaissance mission of the surrounding areas and ensuring those at the bar in the attached room could hear what they were missing!

The whole band had a excellent sound, obviously being mixed very professionally by the sound engineer. The brass section was outstanding and so were the two girl's voices, which added so much to the overall sound. A big thank you also to the chaps who kindly set up early in the afternoon and witnessed the Leaning Tower of Cake fall over! and to the rest of the band in the evening for being flexible with the timings.

We would definitely recommend you to any of our friends for functions in the future so hope to see you again sometime.

Andy and Zo Burns (20 August 2007)

WOW - Just wanted to thank you and the rest of the band for last night [27th July]. It was absolutely superb and really made the whole day go with a bang. We were amazed with just how good everything was from the lighting, sound and of course the terrific music. We have had so many people comment on you and I think that you could tell by the packed dance floor that you went down a storm. Please feel free to quote me on the website and give my contact details to any prospective clients.

On another note thank you for superb communication throughout and your continued patience as I flustered along.

Thank you once again

Mr and Mrs Mussett (28 July 2007)

Just a little email to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding [30th June], Pete and I had a fabulous time and we thought you sounded amazing! A lot of people have written and told us how good they thought you were and my parents were just so pleased - they do love a brass section in bands!

Despite the rain we had a fabulous day and I hope that having to be pulled out of the mud didn't dampen your spirits at all. I would definitely recommend you to anyone that asks!!

Helen Broom (10 July 2007)

Just to say thank you again for Saturday [16th June] - it was such a lovely evening and everyone was saying how fantastic the band were. You all really made the night so thank you, thank you!

Please pass that message onto all the band, they were brilliant!

Juliet Stubbington (18 June 2007)

What a great night you gave us, thank you. Everyone had a wonderful time and thought you were all fantastic.

We haven't finished counting, but think we have raised over 850 for Hospiscare.

Thank you so much for your bands generosity, donating the 100 and bringing along so many friends to buy tickets.

Thanks to you all.

P.S. quote for your website!!

Where did you find the band, they're the next 'Joey the Lips'!

Philippa Greenslade (13 May 2007)

Outstanding night. Two new singers added to the mix has only improved the Loose Cannons.

We had them for the Uni's "Spring Social" and it was a superb evening - a few brave dancers got up from the word go - soon enough and sure enough the whole place was bopping. 2nd set (perhaps something to do with beer having loosened people's limbs) was especially good.

Really good variety of music.

Highly recommended for top notch entertainment.

Patrick Kennedy, University Of Exeter (26 April 2007)

Wow! What a night, absolutely fantastic, words cannot do them justice you have to be there to listen and to feel their music. The Loose Cannons really excelled themselves and brought the party alive, and Debbie the singer, what a voice, interacted with the audience all night. Their selection of songs got everyone up dancing; in fact, I could have danced all night. The friends, I've seen since who attended, have all remarked how brilliant the band and Debbie were, very professional, fun, exciting, just FAB. Thank you for such a wonderful birthday party.

Patrice Godfrey (24 April 2007)

Thank you from the RNLI

'Play that funky music'. You certainly did. What a night we all had. It was Trafalgar Day, and what could be more appropriate than to dedicate the evening to the RNLI. The people of Chudleigh, some young and some not so young, came out in droves to show their support. The band was The Loose Cannons Band and Chudleigh Town Hall was full to capacity to hear them. The people danced and sang and cheered to the bands large and varied repertoire of fantastic music and songs. It was a brilliant night, the music was great, everybody had a marvellous time and their generosity was tremendous.

The Teignmouth RNLI would like to thank you all. You raised the sum of 461 to help us to continue to save lives at sea.

Thank you

Roger Hawkins, volunteer Publicity Officer, Teignmouth & District RNLI Lifeboat Guild. (21 October 2006)

A great BIG thank you to the band for making our wedding reception Brilliant! We had the most amazing day & what a way to finish it off!

It has also been great to hear that the guests enjoyed the night as much as us!

Thankyou also for performing the two songs we asked for so well; 'Better together' was perfect! And what a song to finish with 'Everybody' got everybody up dancing!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

You were fab.

Gemma & Rob xx (12 August 2006)

The 'Loose Cannons' played for our 40th birthday party in July and we are still living on our memories of this superb event. We had 120 friends coming to Devon from all over the country, some of whom we hadn't seen for years, so the music HAD to be good. Actually, it was ABSOLUTELY TOP!! I don't think there was a single person who didn't get up and boogie, and during the second set it was difficult to find space on the floor. We are still getting people contacting us to say how impressed they were with the band and how did we manage to find such a great one?

The icing on the cake had to be 'Everybody Needs Somebody' from the Blues Brothers, at the end. It was impossible to sit down by this stage.

The band were also really professional in their approach, from the set-up and sound manager, to the top-class musicianship.

Thanks SO MUCH guys. To any prospective clients: Grab this band NOW before they get too famous (and busy!) to do your gig. Top quality, top people, top tunes.

Sharon Lord (28 July 2006)


Sums it up really. The Loose Cannons performed at our graduation ball. Despite the large range of people there, from all walks of life I think everybody got up to dance at least once (take it from me, that's one hell of an achievement!!)

The Loose Cannons are an excellent band, who provide a good and varied range of songs to dance to and sing your lungs out to.

Not only are they absolutely fantastic singers and players, their communication and organisational skills are spot on, which made organising the night a lot easier for me.

I really recommend these guys to any of you, for any occasion where you want a good old knees up.

Thank you to the Loose Cannons from me and the rest of my year for a fantastic night.

Anna Cranshaw, Student Union, University of Plymouth, Millbrook House. (04 June 2006)

I write in my capacity as the promoter of 'Villages in action' events in Chudleigh, of which I have quite a few years experience.

I'd like to recommend 'Loose Cannons' to you as a band who can lift your spirits, make you feel good, make you want to dance to them, sing to them (well, with them!). They have a varied repertoire of well known songs which they perform with gusto and talent. I personally have spent a great evening in their musical company, and would be happy for others to have that opportunity.
