Thank you for playing at my husbands surprise 50th birthday party! What a great sound and look! You were fantastic in every way. The music was super, a real mixture and each one was great to dance to. You made it very special for him and all that attended. Can't wait to hear you play again! Thanks so much!

The Beat 45s played for us at our wedding, it was the second time Ive seen them play, as I booked them for our wedding after seeing them the first time. The band play upbeat 60's music, Beatles, Hollies, Kinks and that type of thing. They look good, sporting two different 60's style suits and sound unbelievably good. They are pretty much note perfect and the singing is excellent. On both occasions of seeing the band, I can honestly say everyone loved them.

Thringstone Community Centre booked The Beat 45s for a charity concert and we couldn’t have been more delighted with the evening. The event was sold out and the room was packed with people who thoroughly enjoyed the night and the music. The dance floor was full most of the night and the band was asked for two encores. We have been inundated with people asking for them to come back to the centre and have had a great deal of positive feedback. The band turned up on time to set up, were very professional, helpful and friendly, the music was incredible. We would recommend anybody who wants an excellent 60s band to consider booking these guys. They were faultless.

The Beat 45s were fantastic, we have a lot of bands here and they were by far one of the best i’ve seen! Everyone who came thoroughly enjoyed the evening and commented on how excellent the music was. You can be assured that we would have no hesitation in recommending you and we have just rebooked. Many thanks again.

Just wanted to say a huge thanks to you guys for your show last night at my brother and dad's joint party. It was always going to be a special night and we needed special entertainment to mark it, John certainly found that in you guys. I thought you all looked and sounded great the first time we saw you but last night was awesome. The music speaks for itself but you guys created an electric atmosphere and went down a storm. You couldn't possibly have made the night any more special or do any more for John than you did, right down to even dedicating "All My Loving" to Mom, so thank you. And as for the finale of "All Over Now", I'm speechless. Thank you again so much and hope to catch you at another gig sometime in the future.

The Beat 45s are a great sixties tribute band performing songs from artists such as The Kinks, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and many more, I love this era of music! I’d certainly recommend booking them for any special occasion you may have on the horizon. Encore boys!

Thank you so much for playing my dad’s retirement party last night. The music was amazing and you were fantastic. Brilliant song choices sang phenomenally. You made the party very special and will be a part of our memories from a wonderful evening.

You were incredible - the attention to detail, the respect shown to the original songs, the overall sound and balance, with the powerful lead vocals, and the stunning harmonies were as true to the originals they were playing. I have seen the guys before, yet, I felt privileged to witness a fantastic display of talent and professionalism. Well done the Beat 45s, excellent work.
