The Brookfield Band

Comments from people who have booked us

I would just like to thank you again for playing for us last Saturday. I felt the evening went really well and I have had lots of enthusiatic comments since including "brilliant" and "excellent"....
I will certainly recommend the band to anyone thinking of having a barn dance.
From TS, re booking 6/4/09, Watford

Many people have said what a good night it was and I wanted you to know how much we appreciated you and the band. You had already told me how good they were, I agree with you they were brilliant and I am sure the club would like to invite them back on some future occasion.
Yours sincerely

...We all thought the band and caller were very good at getting everyone involved, despite the heat on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year! Even when we weren't dancing it was great to have your band providing such good music and giving the reception an excellent atmosphere.
I will particularly remember the last dance which everyone got involved in, and which provided such a happy end to the evening.

From KW, re birthday party, January 2015

We just wanted to say a very big thank you for Saturday.
The Brookfield band was amazing! We danced our knees off! (and rather hobbled the next day - but it was worth it!) So many of our guests complimented us on your amazing music, and musical skill. The caller was wonderful - the best we have ever come across and she was as enthusiastic and patient at the end as she was at the beginning. Like the pied piper we were encouraged to dance all evening and the music just carried us on and on.
Thank you all so very much for making our Wedding anniversary such a night to remember.
