Thank you so much to Calder and the band who performed at our wedding in April, our expectations were truly exceeded.
Our guests were blown away and I think the dance floor was jam packed all night!!
A professional service from start to finish which included learning the songs we wanted at our ceremony and first dance etc, we had Calder sing at our wedding throughout the day with the band joining for the evening and it was just perfect – we couldn’t have asked for anything more!
Thanks so much Echo Drive"
Kirsty - June 2022
"We hadn’t told anyone we had booked a band, so it was amazing to see everyone’s reactions to Echo Drive!
From the chat we had the week before, through to the end of the night the lads were easy to get on with and accommodating.
On the day, they set up without any bother and came across really relaxed, experienced and professional, giving us the assurance that everything was under control and that we could just chill and enjoy the evening without worrying. They also linked in really well with the DJ we had booked too.
The music itself was sensational and we can’t thank them enough for the music and energy they brought to the dance floor. Throughout the night and since, we’ve had nothing but positive comments about the performance and song choices of the band! Offering to learn the song for our first dance is also something we really valued and made the moment even more memorable.
We hope this review does the performance justice. We will be passing on the details for the Echo Drive lads to anyone and everyone we know who’s getting married, in the hope of seeing them perform again in the future!"
Biddy - June 2022
"Echo drive played our wedding in September 2021 and absolutely rocked it! The dance floor was full all night and none of our guests were ready for the last song.
Thank you for sorting our first dance issue - not even sure Dave Grohl would have done better
These guys advertise themselves as a professional covers band but we feel this is a disservice - they aren't trying to be anyone else. They add their own style/twist to every song that they play and that makes them more than just another 'wedding band' Such a talented bunch and will make your reception memorable.
We couldn't recommend you enough and hope to see you play again soon!"
John - January 2022
"Absolutely fantastic! Calder and the guys are just amazing, our wedding on Saturday was a blast, from the very beginning. We had Calder’s acoustic accompaniment through out the ceremony, the band and the DJ service. The dance floor was full from the word go, the DJ sets were perfectly pitched to the audience, I won’t be able to listen to our ceremony songs again with crying it was so beautiful. We had so many guests compliment the band and so many complain of sore feet, aching knees and hips the neck day. No hesitation in recommending Echo Drive 100 percent."
Stacey - September 2021
"Echo Drive are incredible!! We had the best night celebrating our wedding with the band playing belter after belter! Our guests never left the dance floor and we loved every minute of it. Calder is an amazing vocalist and the band were just brilliant. Cannot recommend Echo Drive enough. THANK YOU!!!"
AJ Frances - August 2021
"On the 4th of August Echo Drive performed at our wedding and they were AMAZING! Our guests danced the night away! THANK YOU for performing our requested songs. Dancing to Mumford and Sons is one of our many highlights! I would 100% recommended Echo Drive for any future gatherings and it was a pleasure having them part of our day!"
Holly Ann - August 2021
“All I can say is AMAZING!!!! Echo Drive played at our wedding at the end of September and they were brilliant! The dancefloor was full constantly, all of our guests were so impressed and wanted to know who they were!! Dan was a pleasure to communicate with, from our initial enquiry right through to the night of our wedding nothing was too much trouble! So pleased they came up on my Google search!! If you need a talented, energetic and all round great band for your function then book Echo Drive!! 😀💃🕺🤘 Thanks so much"
Lucy & Craig - October 2019
Had these guys play at our home wedding last Saturday. A big risk as I just found them through googling local wedding bands and liking what sort of songs they sing. I knew they were going to be good after watching there clips online however they were absolutely amazing!!! The best band I’ve seen! So professional!! They did our first dance and even learnt top loader for me and the girls which was amazing! I didn’t eat as I was too busy on the dance floor all night and so was everybody else! Everyone kept saying how amazing you guys were. From start to finish! It was exactly what we wanted!! Highly highly recommend if you want your guests to be on the dance floor all night long!! I want to do it all again!! Thanks so much guys!!
Kaisha & Mark - September 2019
“We had Echo Drive at our wedding yesterday. They were absolutely fantastic, all our guests loved them. Would recommend them to anyone.
Thanks guys for making our reception memorable for all, amazing xxx"
Deb & Paul - June 2019
“We hired Echo Drive as a 2 piece acoustic duo to play for our evening wedding party. The band were very professional and played 3 great sets throughout the evening. All of our guests commented on how good the music was, and how good the atmosphere was. The last set they played was particularly memorable with all of our favourite indie floor fillers along with a ‘funked up’ mix. Really impressive especially as there was just 2 of them! We can’t thank you enough for providing such a fun evening and can’t recommend you enough for anyone looking for a live band that creates a really energetic atmosphere!”
Steve & Laura - June 2019
“Echo Drive were amazing from start to finish & gave us a wedding night to remember! We loved every song they played & all our guests were up dancing, which is the main thing we wanted. We can't thank you guys enough for your incredible performance!”
Ollie & Beth - June 2019
Echo Drive were nothing short of fantastic and throughout the night so many party guests commented just how good they were. The room we used was relatively small for the 50 guests invited but they accommodated the limited space very well and produced excellent sound and acoustics ... not too loud, but loud and clear enough to create a great atmosphere. The second hour set was particularly impressive and filled the dance floor to the max for the whole time till the end of the night. Very professional and very talented .... 100% recommend them to anyone looking for a great band for a celebration or special occasion
Steve - Feb 2019
I just wanted to thank the band and say how much we enjoyed the music at our wedding (Hazel Gap Barn, November 23 2018). Everyone commented on how good you guys were and you certainly exceeded our expectations! The variety was great and we loved the old school versions of dance music you played. Finally, we'd also like to thank you for being so accommodating and learning our first dance at such short notice, you were right, it made it extra special and we'll never forget it!
Sarah & Jake - Jan 2019
Just wanted to get in touch to thank you and the band for performing at our wedding on 17th November.
You were absolutely fantastic and many guests commented on how great the band was - the last set was definitely a highlight of the day as you got everyone on the dance floor!
Thanks again and happy to write a review if that would be helpful,
Elizabeth - Nov 2018
"What an amazing end to our Wedding Day on Saturday 25th of August The Carriage Hall.
Biggest Thank you from the New Mr & Mrs Wright to Calder and the lads!!
You all absolutely smashed it! everyone loved it and haven't stopped talking about you.
Nothing has ever been to much! Even changing our first dance song the very last minute and still playing it for the first time for our wedding!
We have continuously watched videos of our first dance! it wouldn't have been the same without you guys playing!
Again biggest Thank you from Craig & I!
We'll be keeping a look out for future dates near us when you're playing!
Erin & Craig - August 2018
"Amazing band! They get even the ‘non dancers’ up on the floor! Would definitely recommend!"
Leonie - August 2018
"You were all amazing last night, thank you so much! We had a great time - and thanks for playing that song twice!! Haha, some of our friends missed it first time round ... and it does sound amazing!
Everyone commented on how good you were, and that you are the best wedding band they've seen (including Ryan, the guy who owns the venue). You were brilliant, thanks again :)"
Rosy & Clare - June 2018
Tammy and I had Echo Drive play at our wedding on the 12th May 2018. In Stourbridge, West Midlands.
They were amazing. From my first enquiry all the way through until the night the contact was fantastic, all my questions were answered promptly. They learned our first dance song and smashed it on the night. They played a great variety of songs that had everyone up dancing the night away. I truly can not recommend them enough. They were a great end an awesome day. Thank you so much.
Lewis and Tammy.
Lewis & Tammy - May 2018
"Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the band for the music at Lizzy and Harry’s Wedding on Saturday. You were all superb! Everyone absolutely loved your wandering duo and the set during the wedding breakfast made such a great atmosphere. The evening sets were fantastic too and I just loved “Is she really going out with him”. We have already received lots of thank you messages from the day and you guys get lots of mentions.
Thank you so much."

Eddy & Natalie - December 2017
"Hi Dan / Calder and the rest of the team.
Thank you so much for performing at our wedding last Saturday! We had a feeling you were going to be good but not that good. You guys were incredible and simply made the wedding for us. All our guests were raving about it the next day!! The atmosphere in there was amazing!
If we get married again lol or have any other event then we will definitely be back in touch.
Thanks to Calder for performing in the day as well. You guys are simply brilliant and top guys.
All the best for the future"

Thanks again"
Adam & Burnadette - August 2017
"These guys are absolutely amazing!
They played at our wedding in the woods in August and couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating. Nothing was a problem for them and they approached everything with energy and enthusiasm.
So many of our guests have been talking about just how good they were and how they made the day that extra bit more memorable.
Thanks again guys, you really added to the day and created a great atmosphere. I keep mentioning you to friends who are planning their weddings!"
Rob - August 2017
"We both wanted to take this opportunity to say a big thank you for helping to make our wedding reception complete! From the first moment of arriving at our reception, Calder helped create the perfect atmosphere with his solo set and to have him play during the meal was a real treat! His voice and song choices fit so well with our day, we couldn’t have chosen better!
Then over to the band for the evening! Our first dance was perfect, thank you for taking the time to learn our request, you did an absolutely amazing job! You had our guests on their feet & dancing from beginning to end. The fantastic selection of music suited us perfectly, we only hoped you could have played until the small hours!! We lost count of just how many guests complimented us on our choice of band! Your professionalism, the seamless set up and pack down and the generous set helped everything run smoothly, we will certainly be recommending you to all of our friends!
Thanks again for all your help!"
Amy & Jean - July 2017
"Echo Drive absolutely smashed it at our wedding in June. After searching for months for the right band we found these guys and they did not disappoint. They were very accommodating even when we were running a couple of hours behind schedule.
Everything was spot on, the songs they chose and even the changes they made to our first dance song. All our guests have not stopped commenting on how good the band was and how much fun they had."
Ben - June 2017
"We just wanted to say thank you so much for playing at our charity ball. Everyone had a great time and has continued to say how great you all were. We were so pleased with the variety of songs that you played. We would definitely recommend you to others and if ever we are looking again to host an event we would use you guys!!"
Leanne & Simon - May 2017
"Played at our wedding in April at Osmaston Park and they were AMAZING! We had a beautiful acoustic solo session in the afternoon and then the full band in the evening. Everyone was up dancing, great range of genres and so much praise from all of our guests - a highlight of the day! Thanks so so much for making our day perfect, we cannot recommend you enough!!"
Laura - April 2017
"We can't thank Calder and the group enough for the fantastic experience they gave us for our wedding day. They are worth more and above. If you want the perfect band for your perfect wedding day you HAVE to choose Echo Drive as they are awesome. They are lovely guys and they even sang our first dance song which made our first dance so special. Everyone was so impressed with these guys, nearly everyone asked me for their contact details, which I gladly gave. I would choose these guys over and over again hands down. What can I say but WOW."
Jess - April 2017

"Saw you last night at hoar cross hall at Cat and Alex wedding, you were fabulous! Have shared your page with our local pub landlady, we have a music festival every summer for charity and I think you'd be brilliant."
Jules - Dec 2016
"Absolutely loved this band! We listened to their demo tracks and knew we had to have them for our wedding day! They travelled all the way from Leicestershire to Kent and set up quickly and quietly while we had our wedding breakfast.
When the time came to start playing, we were up on the dance floor and didn't leave until they'd finished! They sang our first dance which was amazing and we opted for the dj sets in between their sets which was a great range of music for everyone.
If you love Kings Of Leon, Mumford & Sons etc then this is the band for you! Thanks again guys!"
Kellie - November 2016
"Calder you guys absolutely smashed it out of the park last night!!!! Everyone was raving about you and thoroughly enjoyed it! Apologies for harassing you to play another? I had a majorly sore head today!! Happy to do a recommendation for you if there is an official route point me in the direction or I'll just email it. Thanks again for everything!"

Their energy, enthusiasm and set list create a great atmosphere which customers are still talking about months later. A band of professional musicians that deliver.”
