    5 star review  We used Matt Strafford Duo for our wedding 4 years ago and still talk about how mega you guys were. Everyone at the wedding commented on you for weeks afterwards and I'd recommend you to anyone. You were very professional and sang just what we asked for, everyone danced all night! Brilliant!

    5 star review  These guys are fab!! They played at our wedding on 1st October 2016 at The Old Hall, Ely & got everyone up on the dance floor and everyone commented on what a fab band they are! When our wedding got cut short due to me falling and breaking my ankle Matt was really lovely and even offered to drive us to hospital! Just wish we'd have got our full night with you guys playing!! Oh, and our selfie � Xxxxx

Why Choose Our Wedding Band?

Unlike most wedding bands for hire, we are a 2 piece with no backing tracks with a HUGE sound. This means the show is completely LIVE. We find this makes interacting with the crowd a lot easier and that’s what we do best! We are a band offering an extensive set list, high energy and charisma to match, we have something for everyone to enjoy on your big day. Don’t think because there is only 2 of us it will sound weak, take a listen to our tracks and watch our videos and see how we get a huge full band sound using Mumford & Sons style kick drums and tambourines!

We have a fully inclusive lighting and sound setup which can cater for between 50 to 350 capacity. We also bring our DJ with us to all evening events to ensure you have mixed music before, between and after our live sets.
