We were lucky enough to have the band recently for our wedding and they absolutely made the night, everyone commented how great they were & played something for everyone.

We are also really pleased that our friends Adam and Rachael wanted to/have booked you so we are most definitely looking forward to being able to be permanently on the dance floor at their wedding! You guys did an amazing job on the first dance too, it was perfect! Thank you so much, you guys were absolutely worth every penny!!"
James – Sage Christmas Party – Newcastle Racecourse - December 2015
"The Monologues played at our Christmas Party held at Newcastle Racecourse and were simply fantastic. From the solo guitarist during the ‘Meet & Greet’ to the full band playing two sets on stage after dinner, they played a wide variety of songs that had everyone up on their feet. We pride our parties on being glamorous and glitzy events and their fantastic performance added to a great night. We had some fantastic feedback from our guests regarding The Monologues so well done to all!"
Abi Young - Senior Events & Wedding Co-ordinator - Jesmond Dene House Hotel - December 2015

"We had The Monologues at our wedding party after being married abroad and one word FANTASTIC! What a brilliant band and so very talented catering for everyone. Everyone in the marquee were up dancing and singing along - it was perfect. So glad I went for a band and not just a disco. I would most definitely recommend The Monologues for any event, can't wait to see them again.... Thanks lads X"
Barry - President - Heworth Golf Club - September 2015
"Just to say everyone had a great night at the President's Presentation Evening on Saturday. In fact many are saying it was the best band who have ever played at the club and we have had some good ones! Music was right for everyone. Sunday - the day after, everyone who was there approached me again stating a great night and we should 'get them back again', so looks like in the future we will be seeing you again. As far as Im concerned if there is a better band around, Ive yet to see them. Once again, many thanks for a great night."

Caroline & Brendan - Ellingham Hall - July 2012
"Having been to many (many!) weddings over the past few years I feel very lucky to have had the monologues play at my wedding. They played a perfect selection of songs and had everyone dancing all night. I think back to my wedding dance floor and remember all of my closest friends and family jumping around having a brilliant time - exactly the memory you want!!! I'd recommend them to anyone."
Sarah & Dave - Alnwick Gardens - June 2012
"These guys are becoming part of our family since we book them for every big event/party and recommend them to everyone we know. I've been to 3 weddings where they've played including my own and they've blown everyone away with their own psychedelic rock style. They play a massive mix of iconic rock tunes from all eras and there's not one person in the room who can resist getting up to dance (even my husband who 'doesn't dance'). The dance floor is always packed and everyone tells us how awesome they are, that's probably why we keep booking them! They made our wedding night amazing and totally catered for us and our guests. I can't recommend them highly enough, awesome band, awesome people!"
Jill - Ravensworth Golf Club - May 2012
"Hired these guys for my 50th birthday party as they had become a favourite band for me and my partner to follow. They are extremely talented, have a 60's 70's influence but accommodate pretty much any request...very professional, supportive of others in the 'business', great feedback from guests and lovely guys to boot!!!"
Leanne & Chris - Beamish Hall Hotel - December 2011
"Having seen The Monologues a few times you were a great match for our wedding band. All of our guests of all ages enjoyed it. You were a great set of guys and very talented and professional in what you do."
Faye & Nigel - Beamish Hall Hotel - October 2011
"When I think back to my wedding and all the thought and choices that went into making the day as memorable for us as possible, choosing to have The Monologues play at our reception is way up there with my choice of groom (awesome!). The set they played will forever be the soundtrack to one of the best days of my life and such a good night was had, that I can honestly say people are still taking the time to remind me how much they enjoyed it, even now almost 3 years down the line."
