Stuff you sent to us

These guys played at our wedding at Charingworth Manor and were absolutely fantastic. They learnt our first dance song, played and sang a great selection of songs all night. The dancefloor was always full, and Candy let me sing with her too. Everyone had a great night and said how fab the band were. Candy joined us on the dance floor too, an amazing night was had by all. Thank you all so much for making the Cotswolds rock! Faye and Mike xx

We booked these guys for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier. They were so professional and really went the extra mile to learn a song for us and made it more personal. Everybody was up on their feet for the entire two sets and we would highly recommend for anyone considering a wedding party. Great range of songs for all ages. Awesome xx

Becky Cunningham

Jubilant wife
Candy and the guys are a fantastic group to have at your event. We had them for our wedding evening reception and they were outstanding. Every guest commented on how good they were and even the shy non dancers got up because of their welcoming and felt part of our night. Not just a band in the corner. 100% recommended.

This is a wicked band! They seriously enjoy the full performance! You party hard and they party harder! Totally on point. They knew when to hold back and let people drink and they knew when time to go all out! We watched them practice, they offered to let us come and see them again if we wanted. They communicated so much to make us feel confident and connected. I am very glad we had Candy and the Sound play at our wedding and I highly recommend them for anybody elses! 5 stars.

Band played at joint 50th party for myself & in-laws in Jan. It was an awesome & memorable night with guests of all ages up on the dance floor. My pre-party jitters were completely unnecessary. Thanks to Candy Spangles & the Sound!

Carol McAteer

Birthday girl
Me and my husband booked this band for our wedding 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 would definitely recommend to everyone you will not be disappointed! Xxx

      Candy & the Sound

      Aww, we knew this was going to be a special night and we weren't wrong! Lovely lovely peeps, lots of fun, a full dancefloor and sausage baps at midnight to finish off at the beautiful Brockencote Hall. Just a WONDERFUL night! Thank you for choosing us to help celebrate 60 years in business, QMP! These smiles though 😍🙏🏽🎵🎶🎸🎤💃🕺 ... See MoreSee Less

      So, after making some great memories for the 3 amigos last month to mark their joint birthday celebrations, here's another great video that we've loved making. The guys asked for songs from their teens and university days, so we went heavy on the 80s and 90s with a smattering of more modern classics to keep the younger members happy but to our surprise, they loved the retro vibe! 💛🤘🏽😎

      We've gone for an edgy finish for this video, to compliment those indie vibes and captured some great sing along moments (of which there were many! 🎉🎤🎶🎵), most notably Katrina, rocking her namesake's classic tune that she used to belt out in a band at uni! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽😃

      With so many other great bands out there, we feel privileged to be chosen to play at these special events and to have such fun, appreciative and welcoming audiences, makes this a dream job. Thanks again John, David & Matt 🙏🏽😍 Hope you enjoy 👇🏽
