A nice testimonial from one of our summer dates.

After trawling the internet for days on end I eventually passed the job of finding the perfect wedding music over to my now husband. Having been in a “band” himself for years he took on the job willingly, and was keen to prove he could find the best band out there…and he did!
The Daily Specials were everything I could have hoped for and more. As soon as they started their first set the party atmosphere kicked in, and remained until the very end. They played other musicians songs as though they were their own, and in some instances even better. What a talented bunch of musicians they are!
I can not recommend this band highly enough.

Gig en France, at Manoir de Champfreau!

The Daily Specials, had a great weekend playing for James & Laura at 'Manoir de Champfreau & Maison Louis Richard' in the Loire Valley in central France, the band were lucky enough to spend a day either side of the wedding and enjoyed much, sun, food, wine & cheese!  As well as playing for the wedding reception they were invited and asked to play acoustically at the wedding ceremony itself for the brides walk in, signing and bride & grooms walk out. This was a great day and the band had a top laugh and fun in one of the most impressive venues and services we've seen for a wedding (website: http://www.champfreau.com/Le_Manoir/Home.html) and one of frances oldest barns (1400's) that was tuned around into a chapel for a picture perfect ceremony. Check out some of the pictures from the trip below!

The Band's New Full Yamaha Sound System!

There has been an addition to the band's vast and different setups for all occasions big and small, a full range Yamaha DXR/DXS system for the clearest and most professional portable sound rig around. The system still takes up no more floor space than any of the PA systems before, but is more powerful and clearer for superb highs and amazing lows, in turn you get the sound of the Band/DJ that you and we expect at your event making the atmosphere, one you'll never want to stop dancing to!
