“Hi Steve, Rachel and I just wanted to drop you a quick email to let you know that we thought you guys were brilliant at our Wedding last Saturday. Not only was it commented by many guests what fantastic musicians you are, but you also managed to get everyone (just about) onto the dance floor. Thanks again!” Andy & Rachel, Newly Weds, Bath, 14th November 2009

“Dear Steve, We would just like to thank you for making Will and Jennas wedding day very special. Please pass on our thanks to the whole band who did a magnificent job. Everyone thought 'the band' were 'awesome' and I think you could probably tell that the audience were enjoying themselves as they never left the dancefloor!!! We were so pleased and would have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending you not only for your performance but also for the efficiency and professionalism shown in the organisation of the gig from first contact to set up and beyond.” - Melanie and Gerald Dixon, Parents of the Groom, Wales, 13th September 2009
“Session 1 were truly sensational. Every one I spoke to said how great you guys were, I personally couldn't tear myself away to have ago on the Casino as I didn't want to miss out on a second of your sets. The song choices were all quality and suited a wide range of people. The two singers were fantastic, the guitarist went down very well with all the ladies (not just for his guitar playing) and the drummer was awesome! The band as a whole were pure class. I would recommend you to anyone in look of a superb Band. The only down side was we wished you could have played all night long. Thanks” - Julia Maunder, Butleigh Rugby Club Ball, Kingweston, 28th August 2009
“Hi Steve, This is a note to say how impressed we were with the performance of Session One at our Wedding at the Kingscote Barn in Gloucestershire on the 25th of July 2009. We reviewed the band through clips on the website and were really looking forward to seeing them pay on our wedding night. The performance on the night was amazing and was a massive part in making our wedding day such a memorable experience. The performance totally surpassed our expectations and we were so happy with our choice of band. My family and friends who had come down from Scotland and my wife's family from Devon and Cornwall are still talking about how good the band were. From the first song, 'Bleeding Love' right through the whole set the quality of the music was superb. I have watched our wedding video six times now and watching everyone dancing all night and having a great time just brings back how good a night it was. The songs in the set played by the band just seemed to work out perfectly and really captured the mood of the day. I would not hesitate to recommend the band Session One for a wedding or any other occasion. I think anyone who booked Session One would be blown away by the quality of the band by the amazing voices of the lead singers. The band look the part too and were really friendly, which was great. The disco played in between each set was also great. We are really happy we chose Session One to play at our special day and would like to thank you wholeheartedly for making the evening of our wedding so special. Thank you!” - Paul and Penny, Newly Weds, Tetbury, July 2009
