The Forgers Covers Band: Reviews
2012 Covers Band Reviews
Barry and I just wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful time last Saturday! All the guests told us how much they loved the music and what a great time they had, and we couldn't agree more. Please let us know if you ever need a reference, and we will not hesitate to recommend you guys to anyone looking for an excellent band. Susan Gardner (booked our cover band for her wedding, Greenwich, 2012).
You guys were so awesome at the wedding, people are still taking about it. Thank you soooo much. Hopefully I'll get to see you at the next gig at the stage door :-) Alice Scofield (hired our function band for her wedding, Egham, 2012).
Thank you for such a fantastic night. You guys were incredible. Everyone was up and getting down on the dance floor all night, including me. So many people have told me how brilliant you were. Best wedding band ever! You really helped make the day and night so special, I didn't want it to end. Thank you for everything! Cathy, (booked our covers band for her wedding, Wimbledon, 2012).
Thanks for playing at the wedding on Friday and helping to make it such a cracking party and thanks for learning the song so that we could do our first dance. Everyone said what a cracking band you were to us. Thanks for adjusting the timings as well, the best laid plans and all that..... and the sound limiting wasn't too bad in the end either as the older people didn't complain about it being too loud!
Andy and Vanessa (hired our covers band for their wedding, Dulwich, 2012).
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for Saturday. Everyone had a fabulous night and couldn't stop raving about how good the band were. You guys were great, so thanks again.
Trudie & Sam (booked our covers band for their wedding, Fyfield, 2012).
Thanks very much. We've had very good feedback for you and I'd have no hesitation in booking you again. Luke (booked our covers band for the Aston University Ball, 2012).
You guys make such a great sound, I was very impressed and utterly delighted. Sara (booked our covers band for her wedding, Islington, 2012).
Friday night was excellent, the band sounded great and I really got carried away by the very eclectic mix of songs - from those such as Fat Bottomed Girls, hugely familiar, to the excellent Foo Fighters number, a band of which I'd only previously heard. Mustang Sally was brilliant, btw. Tim Hendy, Tim Hendy Pianos Ltd, 2012.
Forgers - you rocked our wedding! We (and the rest of the crowd) had an awesome time, the tunes were great and big love from Emma for the 'Faith' cover. See you again soon! Adam & Emma (hired our covers band for their wedding, Greenwich, 2012).
2011 Function Band Reviews
Thanks for giving us a great show on Sunday . . everyone loved you. Very professional. See you again soon. Steve Brown, record producer who has worked with Sir Elton John, ABC, George Michael (Wham!), Alison Moyet, Freddie Mercury (Queen), The Cult, The Manic Street Preachers, The Pogues... (hired our function band for a charity event in London 2011).
The marquee came down this afternoon. I've been involved in organising events for a long time and I wanted to firstly convey my pleasure at working with people who are true to their word, punctual, and professional. And secondly to say that your performance was superb, everyone around me said how good you all were. If you ever want a third party to use as a reference I would be happy to oblige. All things being equal we will book you again for next year. Andy, (booked our function band for Pett's Wood FC Presentation Ceremony, Keston 2011).
Lucy and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for being so brilliant at our wedding. You guys absolutely brought the house down and played the perfect set. Our friends couldn't quite believe how great you were and not many couples are played out of their wedding by Smells Like Teen Spirit! I hope you had a good night and had everything you needed. Have a great Christmas. All the best. John & Lucy (booked our function band for their wedding, Dalston, 2011).
We had a fantastic day at our wedding and we wanted to say thank you so much for everything that you and the band did to make it perfect. The music was fantastic, it created such an atmosphere - so many guests commented on it and how brilliant it was. The white suits looked excellent especially with the UV lighting - we've seen the professional photos and they look great. Once we get them we will send you any that might be of interest. Thank you again for everything including playing through the pain! I hope your hand has fully recovered. Steve & Hannah (hired our function band for their wedding, London 2011).
Just a wee note to say thanks very much to you and the boys for your marvellous set last night. I hope that that you get a few bookings out of it. I will certainly be recommending you. Kati, (hired our function band for a corporate dinner, London 2011).
I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for helping to make my 40th party so special. It was a night to remember and I couldn't have done it without you. The punters loved you. Thanks for making it such a memorable occasion. Great band = great party. I'd recommend you unreservedly to anyone x (for a small fee). Hannah, (booked our function band for her birthday party, Milton Keynes 2011). Here's what the guests had to say;
Thanks again for a top night. Needless to say, you guys were a massive success with everyone. We always knew you would be of course :) James & Jen, (hired our function band for their wedding, Wooton-Under-Edge 2011)
Brilliant rocking night, you guys made our wedding something special! All our guests loved you, thanks guys xxx Angie, (booked our function band for her wedding, Hartley Witney 2011). Here's what the guests had to say; "Was amazing"... ..."FAB NIGHT you guys rocked x" ..."Great night! Great gig! Well woth the 8hr journey from Scotland!! You guys rock!!!" ..."Absolutely amazing will be coming to see you again!xx" ..."You guys almost gave my dad a heart attack, he was the bearded one raving at the front!! Awesome night!!"
You guys were awesome tonight... I have never seen The Stage Door erupted like that let alone a mosh pit :) ... Try collecting glasses in the mosh pit haha, you guys were brilliant I wanna see you again... Will keep an eye out on when you're playing next. Mika, barman @ The Stage Door, London Waterloo, 2011 Here is what some other audience members had to say "Good to see the band on Friday night, great evening as usual, I particularly enjoyed having a good dance as its been a while and good to let off steam after a very busy and stressful week at work."... "Friday night was excellent, the band sounded great and I really got carried away by the very eclectic mix of songs - from those such as Fat Bottomed Girls, hugely familiar, to the excellent Foo Fighters number, a band of which I'd only previously heard. Mustang Sally was brilliant, btw."
The band on the evening of a wedding make or break it in my opinion and you guys were just amazing... on behalf of Gemma and I, thank you so much. Quite a few people asked for your contact details so I passed them on, I think that is always a good sign! We will try and pop down to see you on 20th at Stage Door but if we don't make it, we will catch your next show. Please also pass my thanks to Chris and Max, see you soon. PS. apologies for the over raucous moshing and the potential damage to equipment but quite frankly its your own fault for being so damn good!. James and Gemma, (booked our function band for their wedding on a boat on the Thames, London 2011).
...slowly recovering from Saturday! Many thanks to all of your band members for their effort on the night, especially being flexible with timings and audio requirements. I've received great feedback from a number of people wanting to know the name of the band so you must have stuck a few chords with the crowd. Once again many thanks from the entire organising committee. We managed to raise close to £30,000 which is a huge effort. Gareth, (hired our function band for The Pike River Mine & Christchurch Earthquake Black Tie Charity Ball, London 2011).
"Thanks to the band The Forgers; Cliff Smith and his band mates, for making themselves available and putting on an amazing performance which got everyone on the dance floor. Hayden, Royal Bank Of Scotland corporate event, London 2011
I wanted to send a quick email to say THANK YOU for putting on such a great show last night for my birthday. I had nothing but good comments from my friends in regards to how great you guys were and I think the full dance floor spoke for itself! We'll definitely try to catch you again whenever you have a gig in London. Melissa, (booked our function band for her 30th birthday party, London 2011)
2010 Cover Band Reviews
Happy Xmas Cliff. That was a fantastic gig mate. Hope to book you again for whatever reason! Neil, (hired our cover band for the Tradition company Christmas party, London, 2010).
Dear Cliff, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for a fantastic performance with your band last night at our anniversary party. We had a thoroughly brilliant evening. Everything worked so well for us, even though I know we were a little late getting cleared up after the supper! We had such a lot of good comments about the The Forgers, which was reflected in the amount of people on the dancefloor! I think the music mix was brilliant - the young set were surprised and delighted that there was music they could dance to at an "olds" party, and a few youngsters in their 70s also got up for a boogie! Today some of my friends have told me that they didn't do much chatting as they wanted to dance all night! You have a very talented group and I hope you can pass on our thanks to them also. Its been a while since I have heard so many positive comments about a band at a party, so I am very pleased to have been the one to book you! Best wishes, and thanks again. Sarah and Jonnie, (booked our coversband for their 25th wedding anniversary party, Bedfordshire, 2010).
Thanks for playing at our wedding - it really got people ramped up for a good party. We had a lot of people ask where they can see you play again - are you still doing gigs in Waterloo? Hannah & Dan, (hired our acoustic cover band for their Wedding, Maidstone, 2010).
You guys were awesome!
Dave, Owner of The Brass Monkey Pub, London Victoria (booked our cover band in 2010).
2009 Party Band Reviews
The Forgers are excellent at entertaining the crowd! They played a range of our favourite songs from across the eras and had people up dancing, singing and clapping along! Definitely a crowd pleaser! Cheers guys look forward to seeing you again soon. Natalie, Entertainment Manager, (hired our party band for The Stage Door Pub, London Waterloo, 2009. We still play there regularly!)
