Mr Simon Calver


We had Popgun play at our wedding reception and we were thoroughly impressed from start to finish! Communication with Matt was really helpful in the lead up to the day and they were so professional. Everyone had such a great time during their set and they sounded amazing. Somehow they even managed to find that elusive sweet spot for the volume which so many live bands struggle with where they filled the room with sound but you could still talk to people. It's fair to say we were absolutely thrilled to have them at our wedding and would very highly recommend them to anyone! Thanks so much guys! Simon and Maggie, Colchester

Mr Paul Elworthy


Paul & Kelly Elworthy 06/09/2019 The Orangery Maidstone. Wedding. We booked the Deloreans for our Wedding and have to say they blew us away. The sound and the singing was awesome. They had a great set and all our guests kept commenting on how good they were. Everyone was up dancing and it made for a great night. We would 100% recommend this band to anyone. Thanks for making the wedding evening a brilliant night. Paul & Kelly

Mr Toby Woolley


We were exceptionally pleased with Ultimate 80s Party Band for our wedding in August. Several months before the actual day, Matt (the guitarist) called us to introduce himself and we spoke regularly in the weeks leading up to the wedding, making plans and small adjustments to the night. As a huge Guns 'n Roses fan, I asked if they could play any other Guns songs and they obliged with spectacular renditions of Welcome to the Jungle and Paradise City. We asked them to learn a song for our opening dance and they absolutely NAILED it, performing it flawlessly. With exceptional vocal range and musical mastery, they smashed through their repertoire in 3 amazing sets, keeping our guests on their feet until just before midnight. We demanded more from them at this point and they happily obliged with an encore. All our guests, the photographer, the caterers, the bar staff and even the venue owners told us that they were the best wedding band they'd ever seen! I have no hesitation in giving them 5 out of 5 and strongly recommend them to anyone who wants an outstanding live band to play at their event. Thank you to Matt and the gang for giving us such an amazing evening!

Mrs Jo Wurm


Brilliant. All our guests loved the band and couldn’t believe the amazing voices. Thank you for a great evening

Mrs Julie Brinnand


Had a wonderful time celebrating my big birthday on May 18th dancing to Popgun80s Th feedback from all my guests was ‘fantastic band’, ‘ amazing’, ‘brilliant’ Arrangements were easy to make and communicating with Matt was simple and a pleasure. I would recommend everyone who wants ‘simply the best’ to book Popgun.

Mr Simon Gregory


Popgun played at our wedding party and they were absolutely awesome! They played with their new line-up Leanne Knights & James Beuchet who were both clearly very talented. Popgun now have outstanding male & female vocalists in their lineup adding to their versatility and helping them to be true to the original versions of the music they play, which is something I know this band prides themselves on doing. The guitar work and drums were incredible, the solos and fills were spot on, the sound quality and lighting were excellent. The dancefloor was full from start to end. They played 80s hit after hit and some of our guests were telling us they didn't want to leave the dancefloor even to go to the bathroom or bar in fear of missing another great song. They interacted well with our guests both while they were playing and also during the DJ sets. They have been a pleasure to deal with over the last few months, Matt and Simon have been very helpful and you can tell they have an incredible passion to delivering a great experience every time. Popgun advertise themselves as the UK's premier 80s tribute band, they are definitely not wrong! If we have the opportunity to do so, we'd definitely have no hesitation to book them again. We'll just have to come up with a reason to have another party! We'll hopefully look to visit one of their public shows sometime soon - these guys rock! 11 May 2019

Mr Robert Howard


Outstanding!

Mrs Laura Trusson


A great professional band that know how to rock out the 80s tunes! Enjoyed by all. Would recommend for your party! - The Red Lion Pub Manningtree

Mr Chris Carr


Fantastic group!. kept the dance floor full all night. Great mix of music

Mr Andrew Stanstead


The band were appearing at the Stansted Social Club on November 10th. As usual Popgun didn't disappoint! Their appearance coincided with a 50th birthday celebration and the band had the place jumping. If you ever have doubts about their set, get along to gig. You won't regret it!

Mrs Marie Shirley


We are so pleased Popgun were available for our Wedding Day! Having seen them at another wedding there was no one else we wanted to book! They manage to get everyone up and stay dancing all night! No one wanted it to end! Helpful, friendly and fun on the build up i would highly recommend them again and again!! x

Mr Matthew Eaves


Popgun from the beginning of the booking process until the end of the actual night were an absolute pleasure to deal with. They were courteous and professional, the live set was outstanding and our guests couldn’t keep away from the dancefloor. As a professional musician myself in the same industry, I know how much work had gone into their live set. The addition of the extra female vocalist and the light show blew us all away! Properly brilliant band, loved by everyone and I cannot recommend highly enough. Totally made our night, thank you guys you’re awesome!! Matt and Kay Eaves - The Wood Norton, 13.10.18

Mrs Mark Furnish


The band were beyond brilliant! Before our wedding day they were great and helped us with the playlist and the logistics, communication was easy and clear. We can't say enough good things about Popgun. Every guest commented how they were the best band they have ever seen at a wedding! The dance floor was always full and the band appealed to everyone at the wedding. This ranged from Nan rocking out, to the kids sliding around the dance floor! The energy of the band was second to none and really provided the evening with the spark that was needed. The band played our first dance and then launched into their set, that moment will stay with me forever. They perfectly captured the mood of the day and all guests cheered and shouted as they launched into a Back to the Future themed beginning. I would thoroughly recommend PopGun and will definitely be looking to see them again in the near future. Mark and Hannah (Sugar Loaf Barn, 4/8/18)

Mrs Joanna Lawrence


We went to see popgun over a year ago and were so impressed with them that we booked them for a family birthday party for this august at our home. They were outstanding - a real treat for us and all our guests.

Wow, what a band. The guys were very professional to deal with and very efficient in every way.

Great entertainment from fantastic, talented musicians. Thank you Popgun, I would definitely use you again. LVS PTA May Ball 2018

Miss Kylie Patterson


After seeing Popgun play at a public show, we knew they would be the perfect band for our wedding. The whole booking process was perfect, and we were never waiting long for an answer to any of our queries. Popgun made our evening reception unforgettable, and we have had so many guests tell us how much they loved the band. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Popgun! Paul and Kylie Patterson

Mr Joel French


The Tavern, Holland on Sea.These guys really rock it. They've been regulars at The Tavern for years and always produce a fantastic show. We would highly recommend them for any event or function.

Mrs Beth -


From our experience, the band are very flexible and accommodating when we had last minute changes to our event. The client was so pleased and was dancing until the early hours. Would recommend for corporate parties.

Mr Steve Garrett


Thank you Popgun for playing at our wedding! We had an amazing time and you guys really made the difference. We had a top night and your set list kept playing tune after tune. Our guests are children of the 80's, and they haven't stopped talking about you since our wedding. You were all really helpful, professional but also really fun in helping us with our wedding. We would definitely recommend you. Thank you for making our day and we will definitely be coming to see you at one of your gigs again in the near future.

Mr Phil Ager


Once again Popgun went down a storm at the Festival - keeping our campers dancing throughout the evening and having a great rapport

Mr James Plummer


Popgun were fantastic at our wedding and really made it an extra special occasion. They had massive energy and got the crowd up on the dance floor with gusto! All the guests commented on how fantastic they were and we felt popgun were worth every penny. They helped complete our perfect wedding day and we say a massive thank you.

Miss Sarah Hopkin


Fantastic from start to finish! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a band for any event. Thank you so much for a perfect night. All our guests said you were the best band they had seen at a wedding!

Miss Rosie Cook


Popgun were absolutely brilliant at our wedding in Summer 2017. They had the dance floor packed and buzzing from start to finish with the 8 to 80 year olds rocking out alike! We've received countless compliments from our guests on what a great choice they were and how much fun it was on the dance floor. A huge thank you to Simon and the band. The band themselves were incredibly helpful and easy to deal with throughout the planning process and on the night itself. They were very accommodating with regard to our first dance request and were flexible on set structures (to accommodate us running a little late on the day). Would highly recommend and can't wait to book them again.

Mr Steven Foster


Popgun did Ipswich Music Day proud as thousands of music fans wallowed in eighties nostalgia. The whole set packed a huge punch as the band rocked from start to finish. Where do these guys get the energy from?! Stephen Foster, BBC Radio Suffolk

Mrs Rosie Jenkins


YOU WERE AMAZING!! We absolutely loved your music, performance and all the characterful theatre that came with it. Brilliantly mesmerising and just exactly what we wanted to bring some lighthearted but very well done fun to our evening. Everyone exclaimed how superb you all were, most saying you were the best wedding band they’ve ever seen - but then some of us were lucky enough to go to a wedding in Switzerland last year where Jamiroquai and CHIC ft Nile Rodgers played, so that’s a pretty good score!

Mrs Samantha Robinson


Absolutely awesome entertainment! We had the full light show which really added an extra level of fun. Would 100% recommend these guys to anyone who loves the 80s and wants a band that gets everybody dancing and talking the next day!!

Mr Tom Draper


Thank you Popgun, you made our wedding into a real party! Fantastic, energetic set full of amazing 80s tunes. Popgun's performance really got everyone in the mood to party, they got everyone up on the dancefloor and it was a brilliant and memorable night for us. So much fun! If you love the 80s, book Popgun, you won't regret it!

Mr Mark Robinson


Brilliant band with a real 80s vibe. Got us all up dancing including several over 80's in age. Great way to celebrate and be entertained for our wedding evening celebration. Would thoroughly recommend for a great evening's entertainment.

Mrs Melissa Gilani


Absolutely fantastic! These boys really got the party started and were so relaxed about last minute changes and requests to the set timings. Everyone was dancing away and many people said it was the best party they'd ever been too. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Mr Dan Holman


Its always a great night when Popgun are playing the Ocean bar. People are constantly asking me when they will be back and quite often we run at our maximum capacity showing how popular they are. If 80's music, lights, laser, smoke and some very suspect outfits are you thing....Popgun is the band to watch!

Mr Duncan Tuhey


The Prince of Wales Sudbury

Mrs Charlotte Bryant


Absolutely amazing!!!!!! Popgun totally made our wedding and everyone has been talking about the band ever since. I cant sing your praises highly enough, you intereacted with the crowd, were really nice guys and your choice of songs was FAB! Can we do it all over again please????? :) xx

Mr Daniel Wright


The POPGUN guys totally made our wedding - not much more to say. The entire dance floor was packed all night, everyone was up dancing, singing and having an absolute blast. From booking through to playing they were easy to work with and really flexible with regards to our needs, especially the DJ set and the extra song that they learnt for my fiancee (now wifey). I can only say a massive THANK YOU for making it the best wedding ever and we can't wait to come down to your end of the country to see you again. #makeweddingsgreatagain #justbookpopgun

Mr Steve Garrett


PopGun have now played a lot of times at Eldo Bar And Music and never disappoint or fall to get the crowd going with their second to none 80s show. They are also a great bunch of guys easy to get along with and very happy to help with promo for your gig, at our last all day charity event ELDOFEST they got their at 12 in the afternoon and stayed till 2 in the morning to help out.

Mr Mike Rutherford


i thought it was great thanks again for playing

Mr James McInroy


Popgun raised the roof at our Wedding Party with a spectacular selection of 80s floor fillers. Even after two sets we were left wanting more !! Popgun are terrific ! Supreme music talent and all round top Guys. From the opening enquiry, to a final handshake and good night at the end of the evening, Popgun were excellent to work with. All of our guests were amazed at the talent, sound and production on the night. The Automated Light Show was definitely the icing on the Cake. Phil, Matt, Mark and Simon; thank you for making our night so very special !! We will hunt you down at a public gig soon.

Mr Paul Wilde


Popgun were hands down the best performers i have seen in a long time, talented, professional and unique. They kept a fantastic energy in the room, which was evident in the fact that the dance floor was far too small for all the people who wanted to dance. A fantastic themed mix of energy and nostalgia, highly recommended for any event.

Mr Sam Beeson


A massive thanks to Popgun for playing our wedding in December. They were incredible! We've had so many comments from our guests about how good they were and how fun they made the night. They were also more than happy to have a family member(a singer!) join them on stage to sing with them which was a nice surprise. They even threw in a couple of xmas 80's hits for us! We'll hopefully get a chance to see you play another gig soon

Mrs Danielle Grubb


I just want to say a massive THANK YOU for the electric atmosphere you all created at our Christmas Party! We had so much fun, You and your music was amazing and everyone clearly loved it!. People were up dancing from start to finish....some that we never thought in a million years would be caught on the dance floor! That itself is a huge credit to you boys! We appreciated everything you did for us and cannot recommend you highly enough! For young lads, you were all so professional, brilliant musicians and lovely chaps! Well done and Thank you again!

Mr Colin Bottomley


Absolutely brilliant night at Rose and Crown in Thorpe guys. Your performance and music choice made the surprise birthday party extra special for my wife.

Mr Richard Culley


Just wanted to say thank you so so much for playing at our wedding last Thursday. You guys were insane ! You were booked by my beautiful bridesmaid & her husband as a wedding gift....safe to say you were the best wedding gift ever ! Great setlist, great fun & you had everyone hitting the danxe floor hard (including me !). We've had lots of feedback from our guests saying they loved you (plus the owner of the venue was very happy with how professional you were when it came to setting up/clearing up after yourselves :-) ). Keep us posted with any other gigs you're playing as we'd love to see you again! Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day one to remember

Mr Danny Smith


Amazing night guys, can't thank you enough! everyone thought you were fantastic, made the day for us, all our guests have got sore feet from dancing all night...BRILLIANT set Danny & Roxanne

Mrs Roxanne Baker


Popgun blasted the main stage as our head line act at this years 4FS MCC annual summer party. We relied totally on a friends recommendation to book this band, and so glad we did! Fantastic repertoire, profoundly professional and super reliable and as for the musianship?! First class! Big thumbs up from us!

Miss Courtney Burley


I arranged for Popgun to play at a venue for my friends birthday, as I knew they were her favourite band. Well, what an amazing night! They appealed to all generations with their fresh 80's sound & really did get the crowd buzzing with their relentless energy throughout the night! Best night we've all had in a long time, I would absolutely recommend to anybody that wants to have a fantastic night! Thank you Popgun!'

Mrs Becky Long


POPGUN played a private gig for my 24th birthday last night and they were truly amazing!!! A brilliant band who got everyone dancing and singing like crazy people! I could not recommend them more. If you love the 80's then you will love POPGUN. Thank you for making my birthday so special!

Mrs Linzi Smith


Hi guys, I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for yesterday. You were amazing and Becs loved you. You made the evening :-) Wouldn't have been the same without you.
