We booked these guys for our wedding day and they absolutely killed it. The dance floor was packed, tunes were awesome and they even helped me and the groomsmen with our own little performance! Can’t rate these guys enough. Thank you
Shakermaker have been our house band at the bet365 Stadium for the past 12 months and are excellent every performance.
Our feedback from customers is always excellent, the music and atmosphere they create is second to none.
“We welcomed Shakermaker to the Cavern earlier this year, and the response we had to them was fantastic. Well rehearsed, enthusiastic, and with a vast set list and energetic performances, this band impresses audiences every time we have them back. They are getting a name here for themselves in ‘the most famous club in the world’ and we look forward to many more shows to come”. Paul Jones, Cavern City Tours
“Shakermaker originally played at the cafe as part of our Live Music Friday programme. They really got the crowd going with an excellent set of cover songs. We invited them back to play a set as part of our 15th anniversary celebrations without hesitation! Jack Barton – Sales and Marketing for Hard Rock Cafe Manchester”.
“Shakermaker is a proper band! This is true live-band style entertainment for the more discerning Booker, with high talent levels and the emphasis on pure musicianship. This was my personal highlight of the entire three days and their version of The Killers classic Mr Brightside was as edgy as the original”
Ben and the guys from Shakermaker opened our private corporate music festival ‘Autofest’ for us earlier this month, where we had big names such as Sam Bailey and Rudimental on the line up. They were absolutely fantastic from start to finish and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
We heard about Shaker Maker through a family friend who booked them for their wedding, then after seeing them live in 2017 we had no doubt we wanted them for our wedding. Ben and the lads were absolutely amazing; great tunes, a bouncing atmosphere, and a very happy wedding party – without them the day wouldn’t have been the same. A special note to just how amazing their guitarist is – I’d requested that they played Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd in remembrance of my Dad, and it was seamlessly brilliant, and overall an absolutely fantastic cover of a tricky order. Will post the video on the band’s page, and will most definitely be going to see the lads again! Class Act!
From start to finish, Ben and shakermaker were top drawer. We were recommended them by a colleague who had shakermaker play at his wedding and after listening to them, we had no hesitation in booking them. Ben was always responsive to emails and texts/phone calls and made it very easy for us. They played songs on request for key parts of the day such as walking down the aisle, signing the register and our first dance.
The acoustic set while we were having our photos was perfect and set a nice vibe in the group and the evening was just amazing.. everyone commented on how amazing they were..very professional, got people dancing and overall top blokes. Would definitely have them again (hopefully not for another wedding of mine) and would highly recommend the
Wow! Ben and the guys absolutely made our evening do at our wedding. Amazing from start to finish. Song choices got everyone up and dancing even on a scorching hot night. They even picked up on someone singing it’s coming home and played it as the next song. Absolute quality and can not thank them enough. Cheers guys!
We got married on sat Feb 3rd,Ben is absolutely fantastic & I cannot recommend this band enough! Truly amazing! Ben started with an acoustic set which showed off his brilliant voice & it got everyone in the mood for a party! When the band started,we knew we were in for a wonderful night,& believe me,this top notch band didn’t let us down! Everyone was up & dancing , Shakermaker we love you � Thank you so much
Worked with these lads recently and was blown away, as a photographer I see many bands but not many manage to combine real talent, a professional attitude and great personalities! We have plenty of bands and musicians asking us to refer to our bride & grooms them but Shakermaker got onto that very exclusive list without needing to be asked. Easy decision!
Wow! Thank you guys you were amazing. Everyone has commented to us how good you were and how much they enjoyed the music last night. You certainly got the party started. Perfect! Xxx
Shakermaker played 2 amazing sets at our wedding that got everyone up dancing. We couldn’t recommend them enough and were a real highlight of the day for us. All our guests commented on just how good these guys are. Thank you for making our day as amazing as we hoped.
Shakermaker played a fantastic acoustic duo set for our wedding on Saturday. The atmosphere created was just perfect, and we loved all the music you played. We had so many comments from guests on the day on how fab you were – thank you both so much!
Very professional from start to finish, loads of communication, nothing to much trouble. Anybody thinking of booking Ben or the full band do, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks so much guys, you rocked!!!
I first met Ben in a bar in Burslem, he was playing a solo set. I was so impressed that I asked if he did weddings, mine was a few months away.
During those months Ben and I had regular contact, and he gladly learnt a song that was not on his set list, one of my favourite Paul Weller songs, and I chose a group of songs from Ben’s itinerary.
On the day Ben arrived at the venue early enough to set up without disrupting proceedings. He played his set during the drinks reception. Our guests loved the live music and were impressed by the performance. Some asking if Ben could stay all day. I myself, was extremely happy and would not hesitate to book Ben again for another event.
Ben stood in at less than 48 hours notice for our wedding. And what can I say really. He set the tone for the day…….. amazing set pitched just right with him and just a guitar he really started our wedding off amazingly. I can’t recommend him enough. A warm and friendly lad, all our wedding party loved his set and it couldn’t have gone better. Thanks Ben
Thank you for an excellent evening of brilliant music. You got the whole crowd going with a variety of songs(the guys were dancing most of the evening which is unheard of).
This morning I got a special thank you from the company director for the “splendid band”!
You absolutely rocked our party to success!
I booked Shakermaker to play at our social club and they were absolutely brilliant. They sounded great and the song choices were perfectly suited to the audience they were playing for. They played 2 x 45 minute sets, the first of which flew by. By the second set everyone was up on their feet dancing away having a great time. Ben also helped by using his own music to have on in the background before they started playing which saved me having to sort it. I had many people tell me on the night and the day after how much they’d enjoyed the evening. Highly recommend.
Ben was great right from the start, phoning us and going through what we wanted, he was so friendly and helpful. The guys were all brilliant, the music was just perfect. They had everyone up dancing right from the start and all of our guests have commented on how great they were! They are an extremely talented band and really versatile, there was something for everyone in our wedding set. Thank you so much Shakermaker for making our wedding day so perfect!
We booked Shakermaker after I saw them perform at a Wedding Fayre. I was blown away 30 seconds into their first song and couldn’t wait to tell my fiancé about them.
Ben was great to deal with and everything ran so smoothly in the run up to the wedding and on the evening.
The band were absolutely fantastic and had everyone up on the dancefloor. We had so many lovely comments from guests about how good the band were and where did we find such a good band!
Choosing a band for your wedding is a hard task but we couldn’t recommend Shakermaker enough!’
I can’t recommend the guys of Shakermaker highly enough, we booked them for my 40th Birthday party and I would have no hesitation on booking them for future events. From the initial enquiry Ben and the guys were really professional and the communication was regular. An awesome band who filled the dance floor from the start of the set right until the finish! Awesome night thanks guys
Thank you so very much for last night. You were bloody brilliant! So many people commented on how fantastic you were. You played a brilliant set, great variety of music and got our guests up and shaking their booty! I was shattered after dancing like a maniac all night. We truly are so grateful and so glad that we found you and had you play at our wedding. I’m sorry I didn’t get chance to talk much and meet the rest of the band but you rocked! We will definitely be recommending Shakermaker to our friends. 5 star service, 5 star band love you guys!
Shakermaker were brilliant at our wedding they played a great set which everyone at the wedding agreed made the night and then DJ’d afterwards the songs of our choosing. Every member of the band were very talented and the variety of the songs that they played ensured everyone had a great time from the older members of the party to the younger guests. The attention to detail before our big day was great, Ben made sure that we had a setlist full of songs that would get the crowd going whilst also sticking to the type of music that we wanted to be played. A lot of people commented on how they were the best wedding band that they had seen at a wedding. I would highly recommend them for any wedding
Just wanted to let everybody know just how good these guys are. Our wedding was on the 10th June 2017 in Shropshire and we couldn’t of asked for a better band. Ben and guys were AMAZING and performed with such energy and enthusiasm. From start to finish they were professional and extremely friendly. If u are after a band to get the party started then book these guys. We had different ages and nationalities at our wedding and somehow they managed to get everyone up dancing and created the best wedding party ever. Thank you so much Ben and good luck for the future
I just wanted to thank you and the band again for a fantastic night at my wife’s surprise 40th. The music was fantastic and all guests commented on how great the band were. You had people dancing from the first song to the last (even the people that don’t normally dance couldn’t resist getting up!!) and they were nursing sore feet as well as sore heads the following day! You made the planning easy with great communication, prompt arrival/set-up and you packed away unnoticed. Having such a fantastic live band topped the event off and made the night one to remember for everybody involved – I look forward to catching up with you at some local gigs in the future!
Thank you guys for playing on Saturday even through the heat !! what a fantastic day everyone said just how fabulous you were and really can’t wait to book you again x
Just wanted to say thank you to Shakermaker for being the most perfect wedding band. On the night they were immense – performance, song choices, stage presence. Prior to the event they were fantastically professional with lots of communication and dialogue.thank you fellas.
Shakermaker…what can I say! I knew there was a rational reason to why I arranged our whole wedding party around your availability.
From booking you to the last song, you were all professional, accommodating and trustworthy.
Thank you for singing our first dance perfectly and well and truly starting our party off.
I would highly recommend Shakermaker for any event you have coming up. I hope to see you guys again soon xxx
Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band for making our birthday celebrations magic. Safe to say ‘you rocked it’ !! It was my 50th and and my sons 21st and you catered for us all superbly. All the guests commented on how great the band was and we have passed your name and number on to all that asked . Cheers lads for a giving us a stress free evening of fantastic musical entertainment .
Ben what a fantastic night, thank you so much for playing at our wedding on the 1st October. You were absolutely fantastic I witnessed people getting up to dance who had never done so before and the next day it was all everyone was talking about, how great the band was. Most importantly for me was how professional and reliable you were. A wedding is so important and your communication and e mail and arrangements were five star. Thank you so much to all of you and I have no doubt I will be back in touch soon.
Thank you so much for last night mate, me and kirsty absolutely loved you and so did all our guests, from arrival, to set and sound check was second to none, you kept all our guests entertained, and for a thursday night, i feel like we smashed it, i am going to recommend you to everyone i can, such a nice bunch of lads too
Thank you for making our wedding special for us
