Great band, we hired them for our wedding reception in October 2019 and they were absolutely fantastic. All of our guests agree, as they have all been messaging me and talking about them for weeks after. Would highly recommend, they will keep you dancing all night.
First time at Blidworth Welfare and what a brilliant performance, excellent from start to finish. Really nice people to chat to as well. Nothing but positive feedback given from all customers.
Madison Avenue UK played at The Pumping Station and were absolutely amazing! Everyone was up dancing and having great fun! Thanks guys and see you back here soon!!
We held an event for our employer awards, where Madison Avenue UK played at the end of the awards ceremony.
The 10 piece soul band were a great hit with everyone of all ages, both men and women. It’s unusual for a dance floor to be full all night – people really enjoyed themselves.
The sound was amazing and the singers were stunning. An all-round fabulous band who I would recommend for any occasion.
Versatile, accommodating, talented people, creating amazing entertainment. So great I have booked them for my wedding!

A typical booking would be for a minimum 100 minutes of live music, normally 2×45 minute sets (either side of a 20-30 minute break) plus encore, however other options are available on request. They can also provide backing music via our PA system during the interval, and can arrange a DJ for longer events if required.
