PLEASE DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT...

"We had Pheobe and the Night Creatures play at our wedding at The Baths, Sorrento on 27/2/17. They were incredible and had everyone up dancing. Phoebe's energetic and positive nature made organising the night a breeze and also set the tone for our guests for an amazing evening. They even learned a song for us and backed me up when I sung for my husband on the night (which included a rehearsal prior)! We would highly recommend them!" (Sandie and Simon, Jan 2017)

"We first saw Phoebe and the Night Creatures play at Shadowfax Winery and instantly knew they were the band for our wedding! Phoebe was a delight to work with in the lead up to our wedding. Nothing was too much trouble & they even learned a song just for us. The dance floor at our wedding was packed and guests were left wanting more! We highly recommend this band for any function; wedding, birthday, corporate function etc. Thanks for making our wedding extra special xx" (Jacq and Jeremy, Dec 2016)

"We were blown away by Phoebe and her amazing team. They got everyone up and dancing and our guests were very impressed with Phoebe's stunning voice. We couldn't not be happier with the performance. Phoebe was also very helpful when organising the logistics and was able to offer great advice." (Nick and Val, Nov 2016)

"Set the perfect tone for our wedding from the get-go. Starting with some sublime jazz at the beginning of reception to cranking dance tunes later on in the night. The band moved seamlessly between sets and really flowed with the wedding proceedings. Cannot recommend these guys highly enough - brilliant! "
(Richard and Skye, Sept 2016)

"I had really positive feedback from all of the guests, they catered to people with a wide range of music tastes, dealing with them was so easy, the whole process was really workable. Made us feel really special. Amazing performers. They obviously understand the wedding process really well and how to best make everything flow. It was seamless."
(Lisa and Paul, Sept 2016)

"They were fantastic. I had seen them prior so I knew their music and they had everyone on the dance floor even old and young. Lots of feedback from guests."
(Kirsti and Ash, April 2016)

"The absolute stars of our wedding. I cannot rave enough about this seriously good band - the dance floor was packed all night with brilliantly picked tunes. Phoebe was amazing in the lead up as well! Hire them now before they book out!"
(Jen and Matt, Jan 2016)

"Even my grandma loved them!! Good customer service. Amazing!! Phoebe is awesome to deal with. They were really current and played beautiful music. Not cheesy at all."
(Fiona and Damien, Dec 2015)

"Oh what a night!!!!! If you want a full dance floor this is the band for you. We saw a few bands in the selection process, but none compared to Phoebe and the Night Creatures. Our guests are still raving about the music and atmosphere they created on the night."
(Melissa and Steve, Nov 2015)

"Phoebe and her band are AMAZING. Our dance floor was RAGING, and many of our guests mentioned that they were the best wedding band they'd ever seen. They play far more than your standard array of sometimes cheesy disco and other wedding standards, veering into fabulous funk, soul and contemporary and alternative music. Phoebe has great stage presence, and she is so communicative and warm. Our parents, who aren't usually big dancers, were up on that dance floor. Really spectacular and wonderful to work with."
(Vanessa and Alex, Nov 2015)

"We absolutely loved these guys!! They are amazing. They created the best atmosphere and had everyone up on the dance floor. So many guests commented on how much they loved our band. Phoebe was an absolute gem to work with and I couldn't recommend them highly enough."
(Sharyn and Jody, Sept 2015)
