"I have had not a single bad comment about the Motowners and a very large number of good ones. No one can remember the dance floor filling so early and staying full until the very last note. They were fantastic and contributed massively to what was a very successful evening. I would very heartily recommend them.
- Thank you"
David - Teachers Annual Ball, Manchester
“Excellent show! You have really exceeded expectations, I’m glad I spent the extra to get the full band. Fabulous voice, the show is slick, very professional, fantastic musicians – I can’t thank you enough for making my 60th Birthday so perfect. Now I need to find an excuse to throw another party and book you again. All my friends and family have commented on how much they enjoyed themselves and how the band was outstanding – thoroughly enjoyed by everyone – I can’t wait to do it all again!!

“Another outstanding show!!
I personally think that was your best yet!! Very strong, powerful and loads of passion and soul!! Yet again, a pleasure to work with you all. I only wish a few of the other acts were half as professional!!”

“Just a little note to say thank you to kelly and all the team at PX Productions for helping to make our wedding such a memorable occasion The Motowners and J'amy Winehouse was fantastic and exceeded all of our expectations. The guests absolutely loved them.

Mr & Mrs Banfield – Wedding Reception, Melton Mowbray
“Steve and I would like to thank you and the rest of the band for playing at our wedding on 11 July. We really enjoyed the music, as did all the guests. We received lots of positive comments about the band and everybody was dancing including 70 year old relatives! We were all sad when you announced your last song. You were also really helpful before the wedding and provided lots of reassuring information.
We would recommend you to anybody organising a wedding or other party.
We hope you do really well in the future.”
Kate & Steve – Wedding Reception, Leeds
“The best band we have had here by far, I hope we can arrange another night soon”
We’ve hired them on any number of occasions, and they never fail at beating our expectations. They’re punctual, polite and professional! What’s more, their musical ability beggars believe! Their shows have dance floors packed the entire night, regardless of venue or location and their gear and musicianship is spot on.
We deal with lots of bands, these guys produce truly some of the best we’ve ever seen and they’re great people to book! Hire them now, because we will be!

“Fantastic show, unique, you have got something very special, you deserve to do really, really well with it”
Declan, Manager, Inferno’s (Live Tribute Venue)
We just wanted to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding reception at the Lincolnshire Oak, 17th June 2006. We really appreciate what you did especially playing our requested song at the start, it was a really nice touch.
We have had numerous guests telling us how much they enjoyed themselves and complimented us on our choice of evening entertainment.
We will be recommending you to friends and family for future events and will be more than happy to book you again. Many thanks again for all your hard work.
Jenna and Alex – Wedding Reception – Lincolnshire Oak
I have seen many acts over the years and this one has to be the best yet. Every song was obviously well rehearsed and sounded as realistic as the original ones, something not every covers group achieves to this standard. The light show was also very impressive and added to an amazing finish to the overall experience. The singer also had an excellent relationship with the audience and after no time at all the place was buzzing. I will certainly look forward to seeing them again when I can. - Andy Foster
