“…The reality absolutely blew away our expectations…”
We brought in Milo Max for our wedding in June 2019 based on the high standard of feedback and their recorded performances. The reality absolutely blew away our expectations. MiloMax were professional from start to finish and the band members consist of extremely talented musicians, who importantly love what they do.
The entertainment began with an acoustic duo during our drinks reception, before a full five-piece lineup roared to life when the sun went down. Based on our suggested songs (spanning 50s - 2000s) Milo Max carefully constructed the perfect set list. They had all generations up and dancing and really made our wedding unforgettable - so much so that we’re still getting positive feedback from our guests!
We would not hesitate to recommend them for a wedding or any event. Thanks so much guys.

“..the quality, efficiency and value was all excellent…”
On the run up to our party, communications ran smoothly and Ross was always very quick to reply, be it via email or text. On the day, the band were very easy going, friendly, fun and positive. When Milo Max came to set up and the stage wasn't laid out well for the them they took a hands-on approach sorting it themselves to give an excellent performance. It was completely stress free for us. We could not have wished for a better band. We chose the 4-piece band and the quality, efficiency and value was all excellent. Milo Max played a wide selection of songs, all of which had been requested and then curated with their expertise into the best order. It was impressive how well the band suited the mix of 2 different generations, and everyone had a really good boogie! We received numerous thank you notes for the party as a whole and nearly all of them mentioned the band. Thank you so much.
Hatty Ruck - 60th & 21st birthday party – Uffington, Oxfordshire – June 2019
It was a pleasure to meet you all on Saturday! I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you for making our day so special. Music as you probably could have tell, means a lot to us. So thank you. We would like to leave you a good review where abouts would be the best place? Also thank you for letting Andy sing at the end of the night, I know he can’t sing but he felt amazing for that one moment!
Becky & Andy Robertson - Wedding, Bletchingdon, Oxfordshire - May 2019
From the initial enquiry through to the night of our event Ross made the whole process effortless. Milo Max were fantastic and created a lively and fun energy for the guests. Thank you for making our event really special!

“they were beyond awesome on the night…”
I organise the staff events / parties for our company and did a web search for bands and was overwhelmed with how much detail is on their website. Reviews, videos, audios..... the works. And believe me they were beyond awesome on the night. The best band I have come across to date and I'm pretty sure they will be hard to beat. The communication was second to none. Totally 100 % professional in every aspect.

“..thank you again for making my house-warming more like the street was on fire!…”
Hi Ross, thank you again for making my house-warming more like the street was on fire! If I don’t get evicted today I shall always remember the great evening when I look out on the decking. What a lovely, professional, extremely talented, amazing band you all are. Best of wishes to you all. Warm regards, Suzanne

“..exactly what anyone could want for a wedding reception!…”
Milomax played for our daughter and new son-in-law's wedding in Oxford on 8th Sept 2018. They were fantastic!! Great music, great range of music from the decades, very professional and very likeable band members; exactly what anyone could want for a wedding reception! We would thoroughly recommend Milomax and would ask them to play again for us if ever we are looking for a live band for an event. Thank you very much Milomax for such a fun evening.
Pat & Martin Hall - Wedding, Oxford - September 2018
“They truly made the wedding night…”
We booked Milo Max for our wedding in August 2018 after seeing them at a friends wedding. They were absolutely brilliant, the dance floor didn't ease up once. They truly made the wedding night. The guys are very personable and professional bunch. I wouldn't hesitate booking them again.
Richard & Victoria Fenn - Wedding, Herefordshire - August 2018
"Amazing band, created an incredible atmosphere..."
Booked Milo Max for my daughter's wedding. Amazing band, created an incredible atmosphere and the dance floor was packed all night long. Couldn't have asked for a better performance, we received so many compliments from guests afterwards. They played a fantastic range of music and were very professional from start to finish. Thanks very much, would highly recommend.
Brian Homewood - Wedding, Cambridgeshire - July 2018
"...such an amazing show!"
Milo Max was fantastic! I booked them for my 50th and they really made the evening. Not only was the music amazing (you can choose from a very wide range of songs depending on taste) but they were a pleasure to have around pre and post them playing.
Professional, good communication throughout and excellent value for money for such an amazing show!
Louise Leishman - 50th birthday party, Horsley, Surrey - July 2018
We booked Milo Max for our school summer party, as we have done for a number of years. All communications were efficient and spot on, and the performance was, as ever, wonderful...varied, adaptable and hugely fun. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Simply outstanding!
Ricki Smith - Principal, St Gabriel's School, Newbury, Berkshire - June 2018
"A big big thank you to Ross and the Band..."
..you did a great job and we had a fantastic evening at my birthday party. Your professionalism is very impressive and made my job of organising the event so much easier. Everybody commented on how good the band were, you definitely helped make the night!
John Lewis - 60th Birthday party - Studley Wood Golf Club, Oxfordshire - June 2018
Milo Max played at my husbands 40th birthday party. They were simply amazing and great fun to have at the party! I would seriously recommend them and how amenable they were with all our requests!
Rachel L. - 40th Birthday party - Wraysbury, Surrey - May 2018
"...you really did go down a storm..."
Hi Ross & Dan
Thanks so very much for all your help with the awards – you really did go down a storm and sounded fantastic. I know at the end of the night the guests could easily have gone on for another hour if it wasn’t for the Grosvenor rules! Please do pass my thanks on to the rest of the band too...

"...The dance floor was not empty once..."
Milo Max performed at our wedding on 22/09/17. They were fantastic! The dance floor was not empty once, even when the evening food came out! They took care of all the set up and everything was so easy and stress free. They let us pick the songs we wanted and then designed the perfect playlist for us. We couldn't recommend them highly enough!
Rose & Ollie - Wedding - East Sussex National hotel - September 2017
"...beyond all our expectations..."
Just a quick email to say a massive thank you to the band on Saturday. They were absolutely amazing and beyond all our expectations. Thank you so much, we'll certainly be recommending you to others.
Emma and Rich (aka Mr and Mrs Turner) - Wedding - The Long Barn, Newton Valence, Hampshire, September 2017
"...great band, with great sound, lovely singers and good engagement with audience..."
Fantastic event, I have copied in one of my guests who would like to consider you for her party next year. Your communication before the day was excellent and on the day was very good, not too much as to distract me from my party but enough to know everything was sorted! You’re a great band, with great sound, lovely singers and good engagement with audience. I would book you again and will recommend you to friends.
John Hamlet - 50th Birthday party - East Horsley, Surrey - August 2017
"Milo Max, we cannot thank you enough for the most amazing performance at our wedding!"
The duo at the drinks reception was perfect and helped create such a lovely atmosphere.
The music throughout the day was perfectly put together and you could tell our guests just loved you! It really felt like you had gone to so much trouble to put together our perfect playlist which we really did appreciate.
You were so sweet too to do our last dance for when we left. A lovely surprise!
We really can't thank you enough for such a wonderful performance and it was so lovely to have Ross at our disposal in the run up for all our many questions! THANK YOU! X
Pollyanne & Neil Perrins - Wedding - Somerset - July 2017
"Just writing to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the band for a wonderful show on Friday, it was perfect..."
The set list was excellent featuring something for all tastes, which ensured that people were on the dance floor the whole evening. I was very impressed that you captured the right feel, energy levels and tones as you switched styles from song to song. All the songs were very authentic sounding (unlike some function bands I have seen). You have a very talented and versatile bunch of musicians, the guy on keyboard in particular was very busy, doubling on guitar plus vocals.
We had lots of excellent verbal feedback from the guests, Charlotte from Coltsfoot was also very complimentary, she liked the fact you got the volume level right in what is a difficult space to play (many of the bands that play there are too loud).
Milo Max will certainly be our first port of call should we ever have another celebration party that needs a band.
Once again, many thanks to you all and I hope to see you again sometime. All the best for the future.
Scott Oliver (Father of the Bride) - Wedding – Coltsfoot Country Retreat, Datchworth, Hertfordshire – July 2017
"...a wonderful evening of music..."
Thank you so much for a wonderful evening of music. We so enjoyed you and the band members playing, and your interaction with our guests. It was the perfect balance for our party and we hope you enjoyed the evening with us too. Best of luck with your upcoming gigs.
Very best wishes
Jude and Martin - Wedding - Marlborough, Wiltshire - June 2017
"superb - beyond what I was hoping for, far better"
Hi Ross - the 4 piece line up band played for my daughter Amy and new husband Ben yesterday in a vineyard near Bristol.
I have to say that they were superb - beyond what I was hoping for, far better. They got everyone up on the floor having a great time, and they were all very kind to me with my surprise singing of wonderful tonight, which seemed to go down well and certainly got the bride in tears!
We were so pleased that we chose Milo Max - it was a bit of a shot in the dark for us as we had not seen your band before, but, boy, were we happy with what you all delivered. And to put the icing on it, a really nice bunch of guys too.
Thank you so much, best wishes,
Phil West (Father of the Bride) - Wedding - Aldwick Court Farm, Redhill, Bristol – June 2017
“Best investment of the party”
Ross, just a quick line to say thank you so much for the totally wicked band. I am writing this as the sun warms my tent with aching feet. I really did dance til I fell off my own shoes. They were totally amazing.
Can you send my thanks to them for being so professional thoughtful and talented. Everyone from the trendiest little child to the oldest of our party had fun and that's down to you.
Best investment of the party. Thanks again.
Polly - 50th Birthday Party – California Barn, Swanage, Dorset – June 2017

"..a huge thank you for you and the Band for putting on a great nights entertainment & dancing.."
Hi Ross, a huge thank you for you and the Band for putting on a great nights entertainment & dancing at our Wedding at Itchenor Sailing Club. We loved it all and the Band sounded great with many guests saying how good it all was - thanks to you. I hope it went well for you all too. Thank you also for your advice and effort in the build up to the evening. We will be happy to write up a review so other people can enjoy your Band too. Sincere best wishes for a successful 2017.

"..We have been flooded with appreciations for the band.."
Good, you guys worked hard – and played as if it was the first time! We have been flooded with appreciations for the band. Here’s one example: “We had an absolutely brilliant time as you probably gathered and the years rolled away as we danced to that wonderful band”
Professional, organised AND head bangers – how do you do it? Many thanks

Hi Ross thank you (and the gang) for a great nights entertainment once again. I have only just got back from my extended xmas break, hence the delay in my response to you, but everyone had a fabulous time. Thank you very much. Wishing you all the best for 2017.

"..I was extremely pleased. Great energy, loads of fun and very inclusive...."
I was extremely pleased. Great energy, loads of fun and very inclusive. We were very impressed with the musicianship of each band member and the ability to make all guest singers sound good. Well done. Honestly, it was one of the best parties we have had at MIPCOM. The energy level of the band was fantastic; the music selection was spot on and it sounded great. Thank you for your professionalism.

"..All the music was fab, great beat, amazing singers!.."
Listening to your online portfolio and the friendliness and organisation of Ross when asking for information really sealed the deal for us to book Milo Max. Communication in the run up to our day was 10/10 amazing. Everyone has commented how fantastic you were, thank you so much!!! All the music was fab, great beat, amazing singers! Thank you so much again, you made our night x
Amelia & Jared Bond
Wedding – Preston Court, Kent – October 2016
"..The band were exemplary on the day, they unloaded and set up without any intrusion and performed impeccably..."
They were one of many bands recommended by the venue, we contacted three from the list and Milo Max were by far the most professional and attentive.
Communication before the day was very attentive and flexible whilst providing the gentle level of guidance and advice that we needed.
There was very little communication required on the day due to the high level of pre-event preparation. The band were exemplary on the day, they unloaded and set up without any intrusion and performed impeccably.
There wasn't any particular highlight due to a truly brilliant overall performance. The duo during our drinks reception was perfect, the perfect balance was created by providing great music which complimented the occasion without taking over. The evenings main performance was a fantastic show, you really managed to keep everyone entertained and the dance floor was never empty, well done!
You all did a wonderful job, we were a bit tipsy when you left so I hope we showed our gratitude and appreciation!!!
Bloody marvellous performance Thanks The Barnes's

"..so many positive comments on your performances from our guests old and young which is fantastic and a real credit to your ability to appeal and involve all age group and music tastes..."
We're extremely grateful for everything you did to help make our day fantastic. We had so many positive comments on your performances from our guests old and young which is fantastic and a real credit to your ability to appeal and involve all age group and music tastes.
The surprise end of the evening dance was definitely a highlight. I think I preferred it to my first dance as everyone had had a drink therefore it was so much more relaxed and enjoyable for two dance phobics. Your interaction with the crowd was very good you kept people involved! Thank you for your superb organisation & communications on the day, everything went seamlessly.

"..Milo Max were faultless, very reassuring and professional from prep before the day to the day itself.."
..which was much appreciated as this is such an important part of the day. I was never worried that you wouldn't show up, unlike one of our other suppliers. You arrived on time and set up as agreed before the wedding breakfast. Thank you for learning our first dance.. You also took note of our preferences, eg finishing on a song of our choice. Crowd interaction was at the right level, not too much or too little. I thought you guys were excellent. The dancefloor was packed throughout and I could see everyone was having a great time. Thankyou; we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.

Dear Ross, we just wanted to take a moment to say a hooge THANKYOU for all your help & support to prepare for our wedding and make it such a memorable day. Milmax were simply OUTSTANDING. We had such a fantastic time and all our guests commented on how wonderful you guys (and girls) were. Hopefully we can rebook you for an anniversary party in the not-to-distant future. With Gratitude.

"..all the music that you played was first class!"
Hi Ross, thank you so much for playing so brilliantly at our wedding. Neal and I were thrilled with your rendition of Bob Dylan's 'Make you feel my love' for our first dance. So many people were singing your praises and saying how marvellous your band was; all the band members were fantastic and so talented and all the music that you played was first class!
Thank you for being so communicative & professional in the lead up to the wedding as well both by email and phone; I never had to chase an email or a question, which made my life a lot easier. We shall definitely be recommending MM.
Best wishes and thanks so much again Ross,

Wedding – Surrey – May 2016
"..Thank you, thank you, thank you. You guys totally rock and MADE our night..."
"Thank you" really doesn’t seem to cut it enough. A band can totally make – or break – an event. I had a feeling you guys would be good due to the communication we had undertaken before hand. However, the amount of messages I have received since Saturday evening, thanking me for such a fantastic night and commenting on what a brilliant band you were, just confirms it all for me. I must thank you particularly for being so accommodating of the requests for the microphone at the end of the night, the seemingly endless thank you speeches and also for tolerating the impromptu Welsh choir, when you were trying to pack away your equipment and go home. If I ever get asked to recommend a band in the future, you will be right at the top of my list. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You guys totally rock and MADE our night.
70th Birthday – The May Fair Hotel, London – April 2016

"..The mood of the whole evening was enhanced by how good and how friendly Milo Max were as a band.."
Milo Max were great! Everything went smoothly and the whole gig was fantastic. The first and last dance were excellent. The mood of the whole evening was enhanced by how good and how friendly Milo Max were as a band, and how flexible and helpful they were to make sure we got what we wanted from our special day. Many of our friends commented on how awesome the band were!

"..Couldn't have asked for better entertainment.."
Hi Ross, the party was loads of fun and you were brilliant. People have been saying all week how good it was and what a fantastic band. Couldn't have asked for better entertainment. You were so helpful, even with the layout of the furniture and the lady singer had an amazing voice. Can't think of any constructive criticisms, you were unfaultable! Thanks again, for making my fortieth so much fun.

"..feedback from the company was great .."
Hi Ross, the night went so well. We were so happy to have the band there and the feedback from the company was great but the staff at Beaumont were equally impressed! The events coordinator even said that they were the nicest band they'd probably had in here! Hopefully they remember your name :) Looking forward to the next opportunity that we can book you guys again.
