“We booked Old Skool for my dads birthday!  Extremely helpful with having to rearrange dates twice due to covid, but we got there in the end!  Tim & the band were very professional and put together a great setlist for us!  Despite the weather everyone pulled together and a great night was had!  Would definitely recommend! Thanks guys.”

“Tracy & the Old Skool Band played at my husband's 50th birthday party. They were brilliant, really lively & upbeat songs, it's so nice to have the brass instruments in the band, it really does make a difference. There were loads of communication from Tracy prior to our event etc. I would highly recommend OLD SKOOL band!!!!”

We chose the band as we wanted something different and a little more special for our wedding and thought what better than a 7 piece band.  They had the dance floor filled the entire set and every member of the band were so involved and invested in making sure it went well. Their set had a good array of songs which enabled all guests to get involved.  We had our wedding at home so organised it all ourselves and yet didn't even know they had turned up as they discretely set up without any interruptions.  We had so many guests commenting on how good they were and how it made their night.  We are eternally grateful for Old Skool being a big contribution to making our day so special.  Definitely will be booking in the future."

"We had the pleasure of having Old Skool play for our party to celebrate our wedding anniversary/birthday.  Good mixture of music which got us dancing, even had a special request granted with a rendition of 'Take On Me' by A-ha.  Thank you Old Skool, can't wait for our next party!"

“We  wanted to have a special night at the club for our Golf Professional sponsored Jubilee day & Old Skool did not disappoint.  It was the best dinner dance we have had at the club since I can remember & the band had everyone off their seats & dancing.  The big band sound was just right & the repertoire of classic songs really hit the mark.”

"I asked OLD SKOOL to come & play at my 50th Birthday party.  They were amazing, I wasn't really sure what to expect, but this band delivered.  Plenty of old Skool classics got people on the dance floor.  Lots of communication prior to the party to ask my requirements, but to be honest I was happy to let the band do their thing, and they really did their thing!

Would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a band that really knows how to work the room and get people moving.

Thanks for adding that extra special touch to my party."

"Thank you Ryan and Tracy for a fantastic duo in the afternoon for our celebrations, you provided a great atmosphere for our garden party and thank you to the rest of the band for the full ensemble in the evening, everyone there were very impressed with the choice of songs and the professional sound from the whole band. We would definitely call upon your talents another time! All the best for the future of the band."

We booked Old Skool for a 'festival style' outdoor summer event and can not recommend highly enough. So much positive feedback received from our guests during and after the event, which included a number of professional musicians. They completely fitted the brief and got the party moving; an absolutely flawless service and performance. Many thanks.

"OH WOW, what a band, they were amazing.  From the moment they turned up polite and friendly, only too happy to work with us and the other act.  AND THEN THE PERFORMANCE.... absolutely what we wanted.  People were stopping, dancing and singing along. The 1.5 acre field, 6500-7000 people at the outdoor event were treated to a fantastic musical performance.  Their last set to end the day had public hanging around.  There was even one solitary car still in the display car area listening to the music whilst basking in the sunshine at the very end.  Were they worth it, every single penny.  Would we have them back...They were rebooked for next years show the moment they stopped playing at this years show.  Thank you guys for making the show an amazing memorable one.

If you are thinking of booking them, don't think just do it."

Thankyou so much for providing the music on our wedding day! We could not have asked for a better band, and everyone commented on how incredible you all were. I would recommend you to everyone needing a band for their wedding or event. Thankyou for making our wedding dreams come true.

"Old Skool are brilliant. Led by singer Tracy but supported by excellent musicians. They delivered a brilliant atmosphere. They are professional, friendly and fabulous. They played wonderful party music to give us the best time. They sorted out everything from start to finish. They are also very polite, tidy and flexible. Highly recommended. Thank you.
