What a truly INSANE band


Well, what can we say? ... So, we had The Sound play at our wedding 6th July 2019. Firstly, we’d like to apologise for stealing Aaron away from his family & friends on his birthday. We are sorry you were working but really hope you managed to squeeze in a few beers ;).


We can't thank you enough. EVERYONE including ourselves said you were absolutely out of this world!


The atmosphere was just insane and exceeded way past our expectations. What a truly INSANE band and we feel privileged you played at our wedding!!


Again, 5* Band. We highly recommend them!!


Charlotte & Gareth - Wedding

Absolutely Outstanding


Well what can I say ..... Absolutely outstanding! On behalf of my wife and I, we would like to thank you for such a fantastic night of live music for our wedding night! Everyone had the time of their lives and we will definitely use you again in the future!


I would highly recommend this band for any wedding or event! Friendly and just amazing music.


Nyssa & Adam - Wedding

One word.........AMAZING


My husband and I booked this band to play at our wedding reception. The whole booking process was easy and stress free and the band were happy to accommodate. The night was amazing and all guests have commented on the band and how great the atmosphere was. There was never an empty dance floor from the minute they started playing to when they were packing up.


I can honestly say that we will be seeing this band again!


Bryony & Adam - Wedding

100% recommend The Sound


Upon booking our wedding, Matt & I knew that we wanted a live band to play. We had seen The Sound play at our friends wedding a couple of years before and loved the range of songs they played so we decided to get in contact. From start to finish the communication with The Sound was fantastic. Emails/questions were answered promptly and we felt totally at ease handing over the deposit to secure the band for our big day.


As stated upon booking The Sound, they emailed us 4 weeks before our wedding to run through the plan of action, and sent an updated set list for us to have a look at and pick anything we definitely wanted or didn't want to be played, we also discussed the first dance song (We wanted the original track to be played) and nothing was too much hassle. I also got a phone call 2 days before the wedding to confirm timings and final touches which was very re assuring as when leading up the the wedding we were so busy, receiving that phone call meant the band were one less thing to worry about because we knew they would turn up and everything would go to plan!


The band arrived to the wedding venue on time and set up with no bother, and were professional throughout the evening, they were at ease with the excitable and tipsy wedding guests who did not want the music to end! Our guests have said nothing but positive things about the band since our big day and looking back on our photos and videos it shows, with some guests (including myself) ending up on shoulders, toddlers dancing way past their bed time and people not leaving the dance floor until the end of both sets!


We would 100% recommend The Sound to anyone, and we are looking forward to attending a wedding later on in the year where we know they have been booked to play!


Thanks again for making our day so special!


Lauren & Matt - Wedding

Great Atmosphere and an Immense Set!!


Guys, thanks so much for playing at our wedding party at The Oak Barn. The set you put on was immense and had everyone on the dance floor, young and old. A number of our guests have commented on how good the music was, and the great atmosphere you created. It’s just a shame that you guys couldn’t have carried on all night.


We really wanted to make sure we booked a good live band for our evening do, and we weren’t disappointed with The Sound. The booking process was easy and straightforward and the band contacted us at various stages leading up to the wedding to make sure everything was on track.


The highlight of the evening was when the band invited my new wife Lucy up on the stage with them to sing a song. It was a lovely touch and I know Lucy loved her 5 minutes of being a rock star. Not to be left out I had to jump on stage for the next song, and live my boyhood dream of being a rock star as well. Apologies for murdering Wonderwall but the memories will stay with us for the rest of our lives. I attach one of our fav pictures showing this!


We both wouldn’t hesitate recommending The Sound to anybody that is looking for a band for their wedding, or any other occasion requiring live music.


Lucy & Will - Wedding

Absolutely Blown Away


Just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so much for rocking the poly tunnel on Saturday. We were absolutely blown away by you guys.


You completely entered into the spirit of the wedding and seemed to get exactly what we were aiming for - particularly the bridesmaids singalong and an impromptu acapella bridal party song accompanied by your brilliant drummer.


You saved the day weeks ago by agreeing to re-book your gig after we had been let down and Aaron you were just so helpful and professional in all the contact we had.


The guests were raving about you and the owners of a bed and breakfast up the road asked for your name as the could hear you across the fields and thought you were brilliant. We cannot thank you enough.


Sophie & Louis - Wedding

Better and Better


Hi guys, just wanted to say a huge thanks for such an amazing night at Rachel and Steve's wedding. I think just about everyone has commented on how awesome you played.


It's been 3 years since we saw you (at scrivfest!!) and you seem to have just got better and better. Its wicked! Every time you've played for our lot, everyone seems to go mental, nothing like a good rowdy dance floor!!


Until the next time


Becky & Adam Scrivens - Wedding

Brilliant night


Having heard The Sound play locally (and impressed after enjoying an excellent evening) we booked them for my birthday party. My family, friends and I had a brilliant night! Very enjoyable, the band excellent and the music variety enjoyed by all.


Prior to the evening booking The Sound was easy, one email, all booked. I completed a basic form and was kept up to date regularly by Aaron with what to expect. We were so happy with the night that we immediately booked the band to play at my daughters upcoming wedding.


Mel Isherwood - Birthday party

True Professionals


Thanks once again for the performance at our wedding at Polhawn Fort. Your upbeat energy made me feel positive enough to book you all there and then before I'd even looked at your website .... And what a great decision that was.


Such a fantastic indie cover band that kept the guests rocking on the dance floor all night. So many people commented on you all the next day asking 'where your from' and 'how I found you guys, they all thought you were the best!!


Highlights included playing Forever by the Oasis and Mr Brightside. True professionals and got set up and sound checked in no time at all.


We would recommend The Sound to anyone wanting a fun night to get the party started. Awesome!!!! Cheers guys


Catherine & Steve Packer - Wedding

Absolutely Brilliant


I booked The Sound to play at my sixth form leavers ball and they were absolutely brilliant. Everything was booked easily with no fuss, and Aaron stayed in touch during the build up to the event. The band were professional at all times and very friendly, and everyone had an amazing time. The dance floor was absolutely packed all night. The Sound are fantastic - I will definitely be recommending them to people in the future and searching out local gigs that I can go to see them play.


Lucie Clark - Kennicott Sixth Form College

Such A Good Band


I booked The Sound for my wedding on 30th June as they came highly recommended. After watching a couple of their gigs after booking them I did have some doubts that they may be too rocky for some of the older guests. However I needn't of worried, everyone was up dancing from the start to the end of the evening!! So many guests after the wedding have said they were such a good band.


The Sounds communication from booking until the wedding was spot on. I didn't have to worry as they are professionals. They even took the time to learn and play our first dance song which is not something they would usually play but they still aced it!!


All I would say is that if your looking for an amazing band for your perfect day, these are the guys for you. Book them!!


Amy & Lee Flood - Wedding



We booked The Sound to play at our wedding reception on the 23rd June following our wedding in Turkey, after seeing them play a few times before hand!!


What can i say apart from WOW!! The booking process was easy and stress free, there was constant comminication between me and the band that really put my mind at ease on the run up to the reception. My guests we all up dancing from when the band started right up untill they finshed, So many of my guests on the night was asking me "where did u find these guys? they are amazing'".


I wouldnt have wanted any other band to play our reception, for me they highlight of my night were THE SOUND! Thanks guys!


Georgina & Adam Peters - Wedding

Snowdrop Appeal


Thank you so much for performing at my Snowdrop Charity Event. I was very pleased with the entertainment you provided throughout the evening. Aaron was very supportive of the charity and the reasons for the evening and kept in touch leading up to the event. Everyone who came along to the event said how much they enjoyed your music and a few people said they would like you to play at their upcoming events. You are all lovely lads and amazing musicians. Loved your music and will definitely be coming to watch you again very soon!!


Leanne Tremblett & The Snowdrop Appeal

Fantastic Band! Great Sound! Great Guys!!


Thanks to The Sound for an awesome night. A Fantastic band - great sound - great guys!! I was very impressed by the professionalism when booking the band as Aaron was very helpful and enthusiastic and kept in touch in the lead up to the night - ensuring that we were all set to ROCK with posters supplied - set up time etc. Looking foward to their next gig with us at Chaplins Bar, Torquay.


Jackie Francis - Chaplins Bar, Torquay

Massive thank you


A massive 'thank you' to The Sound for playing at our wedding party. They were professional from beginning to end, letting us choose songs we liked from their extensive set list and performing them with all the musical aplomb and composure of the original artists. They managed to get everyone up dancing, which is no mean feat. They were also brave enough to let Ian up on stage to sing, for which we can only hope has not scarred them too badly! The guys truly made our wedding party and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a top quality covers band.


Ian & Sophie Darling - Wedding

Fantastic band for our evening wedding reception


The Sound were an absolutely fantastic band for our evening wedding reception. They played a range of songs that everyone knew and everyone was up dancing. The floor was packed and everyone loved singing along.


The band were totally professional in the build up to the wedding and arrived early ready to set up and start. Although we were a little late finishing the meal, the band were not fazed and just altered their set start times a little to fit in with us. They made their middle break shorter to ensure we got the full amount of time we had paid for.


Every part of the performance was top quality and at the end of the night the guests were begging them to sing more!


Every song they performed was brilliant and many of our evening guests commented on how fabulous they sounded.


We are truly thankful to the band for giving us a really personal performance which we and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed. We will definitely be looking out for local gigs where we can see them again.


Thank you for making our wedding reception very memorable and special!


David & Taffeta Sammels - Wedding

Up there as one of the best!!


We went to see these guys at the Blaize after checking out their set list on here which seemed my kind of thing - quite a lot of modern stuff. We arrived at the end of the first set but soon wished we'd have gone their earlier!


The band really are very tight in their music. They all play well together. They do some of the more unconventional songs really well. Highlights were chasing Cars (Snow Patrol), Dakota (Stereophonics) and Don't Look Back in Anger (Oasis). They also do some really great classic covers songs by way of Molly Chambers and Mr Brightside! The highlight for me though was my all time favourite song Naive by The Kooks which was performed perfectly.


I'm not really a technical wizz when going to watch bands but I've seen a fair few and really do rate these guys up there as one of the best I've seen to date. There was a great atmosphere in the pub too - the songs they play are high energy up beat tunes (well most of them are!). It's rare to find a covers band doing such a range of stuff well.


Go and check these guys out if you're looking for a talented covers band doing up to date stuff and just generally providing a good night for spectators! We're planning on going to Plymouth to see these guys again next month! Thanks guys, keep up the good work xx.

Best band on the local scene!!


Best band on the local scene I've seen for a while. They played a great gig outside the Pilgrims - brought the Barbican to life.


Paul Boyes - spectator @ The Pilgims "Outdoor Barbican" gig

Book 'em


Book em!! These guys were brilliant. Their first time here and certainly not their last. Everyone had an amazing time and all comments were positive. One of the best bands we've seen in a while. Thanks for a great evening and look forward to seeing you all again. Keep going we think you will do well.


Helen - The Tavistock Inn

This band is hot, hot, hot!!


This band is hot, hot, hot! I heard them playing back in November at The Cherry Tree (where they had the whole pub rocking!) I loved them so much I tracked them down for my husband's 30th birthday!


The Sound made the party! They smashed it getting everyone up on the dance floor performing The Kings of Leon, 'Sex On Fire' to which everyone was going mad and requesting encores. The band performed tracks from The Killers to Oasis and even Scott's 60 year old Auntie and Uncle were up throwing moves on the dance floor!


These guys are absolutely fab and I would recommend them to anyone. I would definitely pay for them again! Everyone asked how I managed to get hold of them - that's how good they were. One of our guests even thought we were partying to a CD until the crowd dispersed to the extent they realised they were listening and dancing to a live band!


Thank you again to 'The Sound'


Nikki Jeffery - Scotty's 30th Birthday

This band tops them all!!


Had a fantastic nite watching the sound at the Cherry Tree on Friday nite. It was the first time I had seen them and was very impressed. I have seen a few bands in Plymouth, but this band tops them all. I liked the diversity of the band, putting their own mark on songs like Poker Face (Lady Gaga), sex on fire and other gud indie tracks. Keep up the gud work guys and one day you will take on the world. Great Nite had by all..


Robert Marsh - spectator @ The Cherry Tree

Blown Away!!


First time I had seen these guys play and I was blown away by the diversity in their set,and the enjoyment that the band felt interacting with the audience. I danced the night away, great stuff guys keep it up.


James - spectator @ The Complex

Quality band - Quality music!!


You guys were great... If anyone wants to have a great band with great music then look no further. I booked them for my 40th and everyone loved them. They do a wide selection of music and pull off every song. I would book them for any private function, and if I get married you guys will be first on my list.


Every member of the band is a great guy and on stage they have great presence, a great energy that the whole crowd get stuck into. I had nearly 200 people at my Party and the room was very large but the music filled the place... brilliant. I love Oasis and they did them proud... 'Don't look Back In Anger' all I can say is thanks guys.


If you are looking for a quality band that play quality music... then look no further, 'The Sound' is the band for you. I will not hesitate to book this band again and give them 200% positive feed back. Thanks for making the party guys. All the best, Ian.


Ian Chenery - 40th Birthday Party

5 new friends : )


This was the first gig I watched, and I have been to pretty much every one since! And I never get bored of their music! I think I could honestly say that The Sound are one of Plymouth's best Premier Indie Rock Covers Bands!


I started going to watch The Sound because I needed to get out after a few relationship problems! I had such a great night I had to see them again! They soon recognised my face and started to invite me to all their gigs. They play a lot of my favourite music like Stereophonics and Coldplay and I think they are brilliant. I was really depressed at one point because of my issues but going to watch The Sound really picked me back up again! Each of the guys are so friendly and down to earth in their own little ways, they always make me smile! Now I am a lot happier and I can honestly say it is because of these 5 awesome guys! They really make me feel welcome at each gig and I have made 5 new friends : )


Each person I have invited along to see them say how great they are and want to come along again! They are very talented. Look forward to the next gig.


Carly Innes - (your number one groupie!)

Soooo awesome!!


These guys were soooo awesome, it was our first live band since we've refurbished and reopened - they kicked it off in style! Everyone really enjoyed themselves so much they keep asking me when they are coming back! They were so professional and their set up was brilliant. Would seriously recommend to any venue for any occasion, they did it in such short notice for us too and we still had a good crowd enjoying every minute!


A real breath of fresh air - a great high energy up and coming band, you guys will go far!


Thanks for a awesome night, look forward to our next gig!


Jess & Huw - The Complex, Keyham



Hi guys, Saw you at the Post Office on Sat, I've been to seen a lot of live bands, and love live music. Had heard about you so I thought I'd check you out......unbelievable! Very, Very impressed guys keep up the good work, and I'll get out to see you again definitely. Thanks for a great night.


Del - spectator @ The Post Office Inn, Plympton

Can't wait for the next one!!


Awesome performance at The Mutley Crown by one of Plymouths Premier covers bands. The atmosphere was electric and the crowd sensational..... Cant wait for their next performance!!!


Pete - The Mutley Crown, Plymouth

Best so far!!


Hi! Just to say the gig at The Mutley Crown was the best so far. Great atmosphere, good sound and everybody seemed to be getting into it. Hope to catch up with you again soon!


Doug Little - spectator @ The Mutley Crown
