Testimonials

Here are some of the testimonials and comments The Claire Barker Band have received from past clients:

Very professional from start to finish! Claire is extremely organised and friendly to deal with, and hugely accommodating to your needs. The band are absolutely fantastic and very talented, they had everyone (from my 4 year old niece to my 88 year old granddad) on their feet in a matter of minutes right until the end of their set! Not only that but they took lots of brilliant photos for us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them or hire them again to any function, they really made our wedding day amazing. Thank you Claire Barker Band!!

"The Claire Barker Band is a fun and professional group, who kept us entertained all evening!
The band delivered on all there promises, including dressing up to our ''Heros and Fairytales' theme. Despite playing in a very unforgiving room, they managed to create a good sound at a volume that didn't upset anyone. The feedback from our guests was unanimously positive and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Claire Barker Band to anybody organising a party and wanna get there groove on!"

What can I say apart from THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU . We recently had the Claire Barker Band to help us celebrate our special day and for us it was the icing on the cake . From having Claire sing me down the aisle , to the rest of the band then joining her in the evening it was faultless. A fab atmosphere with music to suit all choices, right down to Nanny Brown being impressed !! . Everybody said what a fantastic evening , some dancing the night away and some older guests enjoying from the comfort of there seats . The band is not just music but a total energy filled entertainment package , and could not recommend them highly enough . The perfect end to our perfect day

Hi Claire. We would like to thank you and the band. You were FANTASTIC and topped off our special day, our wedding guests are still talking about the band and thoroughly enjoyed the sets you played. If in the future, if we have another function, we will definately be in touch again, once again thank you very much. Love Mr & Mrs Eales xxxx

- Sian Eales

You guys are truly talented! You really know how to get the party started – no one wanted the evening to end! The dance floor was packed with guests of all ages, and the ‘dance off’ highlighted Ben’s dad’s true talents! we can’t wait to come and see you guys again very soon! xx

- Amy Gooderham

Wow, what an incredible way to celebrate the evening of our wedding. Our guests have not stopped commenting on how lively, tight and exciting Claire and her band were. The set list caught everyone's imagination and had children through to Grandparents dancing throughout. The video they captured showed just how much everyone loved it, I have never seen a dancefloor at a wedding so consistently packed. The fact that they learnt our first dance, not a conventional song and put their own twist on it showed how dedicated they were to making our day special and then to finish on that after calls and chanting for 'one more song!' will make it live very long in the memory. Thank you so much......

- Andy and Alex x

Always a pleasure having you all here, great vibes and tunes, Claire you have a fantastic voice and a great band. We love the fact you are all venue friendly, which makes our lives easier here at Brasted’s. Can’t wait for the next gig here.

Looking forward to more weddings and events here at Brasted’s in the near future.

Hi Claire

Thank you! We had a great night !!

I have had great feedback – which I must admit I don’t always get!!

Please excuse me not contacting you before – we have been out to sea sailing in all that v windy weather – now back on dry land exhausted and salty but a great regatta week which started with a great Summer Ball.

A big thank you from the Royal Norfolk & Suffolk Yacht Club

Hi Claire

Just wanted to say such a big thank you to you and all of the band for making Beccy’s birthday party so very special.

The whole evening from the moment you arrived was just perfect. Everyone commented on how terrific you guys sound and how great the music was. It was such a brilliant night and with such an age mix it was so good to see everyone up dancing having fun. I’d just like to say as well that dealing with you was a pleasure, extremely well organised and professional and friendly.

If we ever need a band again you will be my first port of call and if you are out there needing a band go for it and book this one.

- Richard Lambert

The Band were amazing. From the moment they started till the moment the finished, they had the dance floor packed. A great mix of music to cover all tastes. Thank you all so much

- John Mazzetti 2016

Where can I start with these guys! From the word go they were incredible. Claire made everything clear and professional from the start. Booking was easy and instantly made me relaxed and excited for the wedding day. We discussed the band performing our first dance song, which was so much more amazing than we possibly could imagine. It just got better as the night went on, and it truly was so incredible. Can't wait to see these guys perform again and again to bring back those happy memories. Thank you all

- Sophie and Olly, 2016

Great birthday celebrations had by all on Saturday 18th June. The Claire Barker Band are awesome, great sound, really kept the party going. If you want to hear great music at your event don’t miss out, these guys are gonna book up fast. Thanks Claire and Josie and the boys, you did a fantastic job, cant wait to come and party with you all again.

- Sally and Eric

Hi Claire, thank you so much. You were absolutely brilliant, firstly in the church- so many people couldn’t believe you were actually singing- one person thought it was on CD!! You have an amazing voice and all 3 songs were perfect in the ceremony. You started everyone off as soon as you began ‘kissing you’!! Thank you so much for adding the service into your day, i know it’s been a really busy weekend for you.

And secondly your band!! AMAZING!! loads of praise from everyone at the wedding, as im sure you could tell from the reaction when you had to stop! I have no doubt that you’ll all take off and have more and more bookings…especially if you're taking them for next year already!!

- Lucy and Ben Gooderham

What a fantastic band, they all got our guests to the dance floor at our wedding. Hats off to you all

Thank you guys for performing at our wedding! You went down a storm and really brought the house down and really made our wedding so special. We cannot thank you enough for going that extra mile and learning XX "Angels" for our first dance. It truly was a beautiful arrangement of one of our favourite songs. You smashed our expectations and then some. Claire you and your band are beyond talented and so nice, professional and kind. The saxophonist made our lives! We cannot thank you enough! Thank you xx

Hi Claire and the rest of the CBB..

We just want to say a huge thank you for helping make our Wedding Day evening such fun. You guys were amazing with a huge variety of songs and personalised dancing! 😉 the "Because I'm happy" song was especially memorable!

When we were looking at bands for our evening it was an easy choice to book you as as well as having great songs and sounding great you're all such lovely people and you clearly love what you do.

Everyone said how brilliant you were! Having Paul Hill play solo guitar in the ceremony and afterwards was just the icing on the cake! 😉

Hi Claire,

Just wanted to drop you a line, after returning from honeymoon and now back in the land of normal living!

We were so happy and pleased that we asked you to play at our Wedding! We thought you were amazing and you are all really talented people! The best wedding band I have ever heard! We have had so many good comments from friends and family about 'how good the band were' and we have so many photos that show how full the dance floor was!

I really would also like to thank you for delivering an amazing first dance for Joe and I. We loved the style and you really made the song your own. We keep playing it over and over again and watching the YouTube video too!

Thank you so much! You really made the evening for us and everyone else!
