Reviews - 2014
"..an experience that is best described as utterly professional.."
Having reviewed half a dozen similar bands, it was evident that Milo Max were far ahead of the rest - from the repertoire, size of band options, fabulous feedback from others and clear appeal for range of ages.
Communications before the day were fantastic: highly responsive, timely and comprehensive. On the day the band were superb and extremely friendly. Very clear communication and an experience that is best described as utterly professional.
In addition, their pitch perfect songs, energy and general fabulousness I would recommend Milo Max to anyone wanting a band to create a brilliant and amazing evening for all.
50th Birthday Party – Hixter (City), Devonshire Square, London – December 2014
“You kept everyone on the dance floor for the entire evening and even the friends and family who I have never seen dance before joined in!”
Hi Ross we just wanted to say a huge thanks for playing at our wedding on Saturday. Everyone had a great evening and all our guests commented on how good you guys were! You kept everyone on the dance floor for the entire evening and even the friends and family who I have never seen dance before joined in!
I’m sorry I didn’t get the opportunity to meet the rest of the band to thank them in person so please pass on my thanks to them also (although I know Keith enjoyed reminiscing with you all about the good old days of his youth when he was in a band, and I’m sure the guitar will finally be brought down from the loft again now!)
If ever we have an excuse for a party again in the future we will definitely be booking you up again! Thanks again

"..the band were superb.."
Hello Ross, we had such a good time at our wedding, the band were superb and everyone really enjoyed themselves. We asked for Andy William's "Can't take my eyes off of you" to be played live for our first dance - and it was brilliant! The set list worked really well… thanks again, you have been a pleasure to do business with and the band were really great. Kind regards,

"Both Beth and I were blown away by how fantastic the band were.."
Ross, a huge thank you from Beth & I. Your guys were amazing!! Both Beth and I were blown away by how fantastic the band were, from the moment they played their first song the dance floor was completely full, and everyone loved them, comments have continued to come back to us as to how professional they sounded. We would not hesitate to recommend Mile Max to anyone for any occasion, and have done so already to a couple of colleagues who are due to get married next year. Thank you Ross and gang!

“..you created the wow factor I was hoping to create..”
Milo Max really made my 50th party great - everyone I spoke to complemented you and, with 6 people performing, you created the wow factor I was hoping to create. The fact that you had actually performed some special songs that we had asked you to learn beforehand really impressed me. The band really helped make my party special.
50th Birthday Party – Porters Park Golf Club, Hertfordshire – October 2014
"..You were absolutely super.."
Hi Ross, I just wanted to drop you a further line to say thank you ever so much to you and the Milo Max Band. You were absolutely super and a great time was had by all. All the very, very best,

“..an off the scale party. So much singing, dancing and a crowd surfing bride and groom. Simply epic..”
Ross, we just wanted to say an enormous thank you to the band and express our sincere thanks for such a great show - it was an off the scale party. So much singing, dancing and a crowd surfing bride and groom. Simply epic.
The real testament was that the floor was full the entire time, right from the first song. The roof came off and Rachel and I were crowd surfing at our wedding!! I have a great photo of my dad and I air guitaring to sweet child o'mine as well. We didn't want the band to stop and everyone was chanting for more, there can be no greater feedback as far as I am concerned.
We were also hugely impressed by how organised and professional you were from an initial enquiry. Always being in touch when you said you would.
We have given your details to several people already as lots of people have been asking. Thank you!

"..universally rave reviews.."
Hi Ross, just a note to say that I have had universally rave reviews from young and old alike for the music on Saturday both live and recorded, but especially live. Just perfect!
Joint Family Birthday Party – Private Marquee, Wallingford, Oxon – Sept 2014
"We saw you at the wrap party for the movie “Dark Shadows” a couple of years ago and loved you."
Stu had kept your business card safe until he decided to propose because he knew he wanted you at our wedding. You guys were 10/10!
You were so organised and everything was explained to us well in advance and on the day you came in and set up whilst we were having dinner and we hardly heard a peep out of you until you started playing. You were really professional and really got the crowd going!
We hadn't heard your spin on our first dance (N-trance - Set you free) before the big day so it was a lovely surprise and you played amazingly! We couldn't have asked for a better version of it.
Thank you thank you thank you!

"Thank you sooooo much for really making the wedding a dream come true!!"
We saw Milo Max perform at a friend's wedding and were blown away. On the lead up to our wedding Milo Max were super-efficient covering everything from first dance choice to timings and logistics. The whole experience on the day was magical and everyone has been raving about the band!
Thanks so much again for doing our first dance, performed superbly!
We will spread the word about you guys!! Thank you sooooo much for really making the wedding a dream come true!!

"Milo Max were faultless"
Milo Max were faultless. We absolutely loved all the band members. Smartly dressed, polite and a great joy to have at our wedding. If you’re looking for a band then don't look any further. Ross has been an absolute dream and he should be very proud of his band.
Milo Max listened to what we wanted, they asked us what we liked and made two sets which everyone danced to. Nobody sat down at our wedding. This is the band you must have for any event. They even accommodated for the Indian music for some of our family.
We truly are grateful for you being so prompt and professional. Yes we want Milo Max to go global ASAP :-] Can you please make sure you’re around in about 10yrs time, as we would like you to play on our anniversary bash! X

“You were the best out of all our suppliers, 8 in total…”
Many thanks from us both, you and the guys did an excellent job on the night, all my family and friends commented on how professional you were and looked and how good your performance was.
You played the music we knew and loved, dragging [Milo Max: verbally, not literally! :) ] Anna [Milo Max: the bride] away from the buffet and back onto the dance floor was very brave :)
You were the best out of all our suppliers, 8 in total, emails were answered promptly, always same day if not within half an hour!
Many thanks to you all, your band certainly made our wedding day finish on a high and we certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone. Thanks again.

"..so efficient from the start and the music was fantastic.."
Ross, we just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the band. You were so efficient from the start and the music was fantastic as you could tell by the occupancy of the dance floor! Thanks for being part of our day and all the prep beforehand.

Myself and Andrew want to say a massive thank you to you all, for all your hard work in helping to create an amazing evening for us. You guys really did surpass our expectations! Milo max was definitely the most talked about feature of our wedding! You did a fantastic job and we can’t thank you enough for helping to make our wedding such a memorable day :)
Your versatility stood out with the mix of songs that you performed. Each one was amazing. Every single guest commented on how much they enjoyed the band even the oldies! The dance floor was packed the whole time :)
A First Class service from start to finish. Thank you so much again.

"We would be delighted to use you again!"
Hi there Ross. Just wanted to say thanks to you and the band for the great job you did for Openwork on Friday night. I hope that you felt how much the guys enjoyed your playing - you must be left with no doubt as the dance floor was full all night and you left them wanting more, perfect. You are a pleasure to deal with and we would be delighted to use you again! So fingers crossed for another good year!

“You guys are the most fun, energetic, talented and professional band I have seen for ages. How lucky were we to have you perform at our wedding?!”
Ross, I don't know where to start..... What a fantastic day we had on Saturday. From beginning to end it was just how I imagined it to be .... Although slightly wetter. But we'll gloss over that! You guys are the most fun, energetic, talented and professional band I have seen for ages. How lucky were we to have you perform at our wedding?!
The song sets, the look of the band, the energy. Faultless. Everybody and everybody said how fantastic you were and where did we find you? My mum was so pleased with how 'smart' you looked as a band!! I really can't thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication to making our day as fun and special as it was. Even my 8 year old daughter and friends had to be dragged off the dance floor at the end of the evening. Likewise most of the adults too. Darn those noise restrictions!
Next event we organise, I'm booking you without a doubt. I hope you enjoyed it too. You looked like you all did! And finally, thank you for letting Toby play with you. He was sooooo thrilled, and his mum! dad! grandparents etc... Were blown away. Thank you so much.

“The whole performance could not have been topped..”
You played a brilliant set, building up to all the right tunes. I remember at one stage thinking if you play Status Quo's Rocking All Over the World right now, that would be perfect, and that's exactly what happened. The dads were made up! You kindly learned the theme tune to Only Fools & Horses and it was brilliantly delivered - I think you should add it to the set list for others to enjoy. Mr Brightside was another highlight, I Predict A Riot nearly finished me off and who could forget 500 Miles as the encore.
Your communication before the day was first class, we were pleasantly surprised at how proactive you were. Rob was very professional and communicative on the day and all of the band were very pleasant and respectful.
I would not hesitate to recommend Milo Max to others. Very good quality musicians - could cut it at any level, private parties, weddings or corporate. Really appreciate everything you did to help make my 40th such a big success!

"...all the staff at the George Albert Hotel said you were the best wedding entertainment they have ever had!"
I announced in my speech that it was the best day of my life giving my daughters hand in marriage, but when we came to the evening entertainment you guys rocked the house with two fabulous sets of great music and my other daughter Gemma said to me on Sunday morning that she would like Milo Max at her reception. So with that in mind we may see you all again in the near future.
On behalf of my wife Marlyn, myself , Sammie & Jed and everyone present the biggest of thanks to all of you for making the evening so special.
Finally all the staff at the George Albert Hotel said you were the best wedding entertainment they have ever had!
Really looking forward to booking you again.
Kind regards and best wishes
