"Me and my husband booked this band for our wedding in the West Midlands and OMG they were absolutely incredible!
From the moment I spoke to Candy on the phone she was so full of life and made me so happy and excited like we had known each other for ages and she was just as excited for the wedding as I was.
They got everyone up dancing and enjoying themselves and even the children loved them. People are still talking about them today.
You really did make our wedding day special. Thank you so much, we would definitely recommend to everyone you will not be disappointed! Xxx."

So...here we are. You've made it this far so you might as well read the next bit.
There are good bands and there are bad bands. We should know - we've been in a few! But you deserve better. You deserve a great band for your wedding reception. A truly special band. You deserve the best wedding band in the West Midlands. But at the risk of sounding like a lager advert, we're pretty certain that not only are we the best wedding band in the West Midlands - we are the best wedding band you'll ever hear anywhere. Yes, that's right!!
We're a four piece band who specialise in weddings blah blah blah. There should probably be a load of stuff in here but everyone includes that sort of thing. So here's what I'm thinking. I'll just list the bits that make a difference and then you won't need to read through all the waffle and we can both get on with our lives. Deal?
Ok, here goes
- We've been playing for years and we're seriously good. We have a massive live sound and we use technology and whizzy stuff to make it that way. Pete has a headache a lot of the time but he's only the bass player so it doesn't really matter
(Don't tell him I said that!)
- We play all over the place. Nationwide in fact. We truly recognise the value of a good Sat Nav, which means we don't get lost and we turn up when you ask us to.
- Our repertoire changes. A lot. So we might be playing Dizzy Rascal this week, but we might be playing Taylor Swift next week. (Who do you think would win in a fight between Dizzy Rascal and Taylor Swift?).
Anyway, we do this all the time, so if you want to get the best out of us, then take our advice. Imagine, by John Lennon is a great song that you might love. But we don't own a white grand piano and Candy makes for a poor Yoko. Trust us, you probably don't want it played at your wedding. Really. You don't (even if your Auntie and Uncle from Bracknell love it!).
- We've got really good equipment that sounds great. We'll sound brilliant when we play for you. No, your six year old nephew can't have a go on the drums. Why not? Because they're worth three and a half grand and he's been drinking neat Jack Daniels since he got here. Under the table in the corner. We've been watching.
- Still with me? Just checking
- You can get a pub band for £250. But you don't want one to play at your wedding. There's a reason why they're only £250 and it's because they play in pubs. No doubt there are exceptions, but in the same way that you wouldn't use a Mr Kipling jam sponge for your wedding cake, you don't want a pub band to play at your wedding. The moral here is to use specialists to make things special. That's why they're called specialists. And that's what we are. Wedding specialists
- Yes, Candy will tell you the secret of her lipstick. Frankly, the rest of us are getting a bit bored with the admiration it draws from glitter loving women in the audience. Especially when there are three gorgeous men in the band to look at. We've even been described as "Easy on the eye". No, seriously. I can prove it!
- I said I wouldn't ramble on. Now look what you've made me do. Pffft.

- We rehearse at SoundJunkies in Dudley. Come and see us sometime.
We have snacks. Unless Mark is feeling hungry. And then we don't. Not for very long anyway.

Candy & the sound performed at the reception of our wedding in June 2018 - what an amazing band!! They got everyone up dancing. They play a really nice selection of songs that suit all ages, so perfect for weddings. Candy has so much energy and always looks great. The whole band are really friendly and welcoming. We were invited on numerous occasions to attend gigs and practice sessions to hear their latest sets - which we thought was incredible service. They truly are a cracking band, and my husband and I wholeheartedly reccommend them!
THANK YOU CANDY & THE SOUND! xxx ... See MoreSee Less
