"Guys thank you so much for playing at our wedding, everyone agreed you were outstanding. A brilliant set list played effortlessly to perfection. Anyone reading this that is thinking about hiring a band for any function then look no further, just book them - you won't regret it. Can't recommend Emerald Thieves highly enough and they were a lovely bunch too! First class. They make it look so easy. Almost worth getting married again just to get them back! Seriously you guys topped off what was a fantastic day, thank you. Look forward to seeing you again in the future"

James & Laura Weller - Mitton Hall, Clitheroe

"These aren't just a function band, they're multi- instrumented, multi-genred, multi-talented musicians. They really made the wedding, everyone loved them! Great people to have around, seamless set-up, pack-up and fantastic vocals! It really felt like we were at artists gigs, could have been the o2! They were happy to tweek the playlist based on the crowd which kept everyone dancing. You really wouldn't be disappointed with these!
Helen and Lloyd - Doxford Barns

Matthew & Siobhan James - Askham Hall, Cumbria

"Thank you so much for an amazing evening of your fantastic music. Not only was it exactly what we wanted but it was even bigger and better than we expected. So many of our friends and family were truly impressed with you and asked about who you were and where we found you. Well, we were the luckiest couple in the world to find you and you truly made our evening incredibly special and so much fun! We are looking for new reasons to throw a party and have you play again. You were brilliant and would highly recommend you to anyone who asks. Thank you."

Rachel and Tamsin xx, Cubley Hall, Sheffield.


"You guys were phenomenal, we honestly couldn't have wished for a better band. You played a perfect selection of songs which were so in fitting with the day and your arrangement of our first dance 'Wings' by Birdy gives us goosebumps every time we watch the video. Stunning!"

Mr & Mrs Worthington, Swinton Park, Ripon.

'The Emerald Thieves provided the entertainment at a charity ball I organised as Mayor of Sedgefield.  This was the main fundraising event of my year with around 250 VIP guest and the Thieves played a storming set.  There were people on the dance floor from the very first song until the final encore and the atmosphere they created was fantastic.  We had all generations in the room and so the Thieves’ ability to cater for an extremely diverse range of tastes really came into its own.  Crucially, the buzz the band created encouraged guests to stay right to the end of the event, ensuring that the total we raised for charity on the night greatly exceeded expectations.  Huge thanks to the Emerald Thieves - I can’t recommend them highly enough!'

Chris Lines, Mayor of Sedgefield, Hardwick Hall Hotel, Durham.
