>> What they're saying <<

Soph & Matt played for our wedding in September and were absolutely fantastic! Not only did they include songs we had requested for the playlist but knew how to play perfectly for the crowd. All guests loved them, from our 5 year old cousins and friends in their twenties to parents and my 80 year old nan-in-law. The dance floor was never empty - I can testify that all dancers never stopped moving. I want to thank Soph & Matt for making our wedding reception, it was truly amazing and guests are still talking about them nearly 3 months on. An awesome wedding band!

Quite simply one of the best wedding bands I have seen! And as a professional wedding photographer I have seen a lot! During the day the acoustic harmonies created a gorgeous and romantic back drop and then in the evening the music left the whole place rocking! (don't know how they do it but the sound they create seems to come from a big band!) The Distance were perfect! You want people to have a great time at your wedding and the biggest compliment is when so many of our guests have raved about our amazing wedding band!

The Distance played at our wedding at the end of September and were absolutely amazing! They played above and beyond what we were expecting, absolute troopers playing for so long. They even learnt our first dance for us, We were so happy - it sounded SO good! So many comments about how good they were! Soph and Mat are absolutely lovely too, there they were at midnight thanking us when it is us who cannot say thank you enough for making our wedding day so entertaining!

The distance played at our wedding at the beginning of August and were absolutely amazing. They played at our drinks reception and did a set in the evening too and it was fantastic. From initial enquiry, Sophie and Matt were brilliant, answering all our questions and responding quickly. The day was absolutely perfect and we have Sophie and Matt to thank as entertainment/music is a huge part of that. Our dance floor was never empty. People commented on how great The Distance were and we would not hesitate to recommend to anybody, You will not regret it - thanks again!

Andy and I are so so glad we had these guys play at our wedding last week. They exceeded all of our expectations. We listened to a lot of their performances on their Facebook page, and had never heard them live until the big day. They were so much better. Not only that, all of our guests have raved about them, saying how fantastic they were, and it was great to see everyone up dancing to them. They blew everyone away! Soph and Mat are genuinely the most wonderful people too. It was a pleasure to have them help celebrate our big day. Xx

Hi All, if any of you out there are looking for a phenomenal live act, get Soph and Mat booked. The Distance performed at our wedding last week at Tunnels Beaches, Ilfracombe, Devon. Amazing!! Sound fantastic, great voices and do all sorts of crazy stuff with instruments, looping pedals and what not, super talented. Our guests absolutely loved them! Set lists were spot on too and played perfectly to our mix of guests, keeping the dance floor filled all night. Fabulous. Thanks so much again, Reena & Sam (Mr & Mrs Owen!) xx
