Where to begin, the band were absolutely ridiculously good the other night. Everyone loved it, and we haven't stopped singing bits and pieces from the set list around the house ever since. Thank you so, so, so much for being such a huge part of a day and a night that we'll never forget, it literally couldn't have been any better, and thanks too for being so relaxed and easy going throughout the whole process. We feel so lucky to have had you guys there. Thank you so much again!

Hi Mike, Just wanted to drop you a line to send a huge thank you from Liam and I for the wonderful show you gave on Saturday at our party in Cheltenham. You and the band were absolutely fabulous and all our friends were commenting on this. One of my friends who was there is the manager of Boney M - he loved you! Anyway, thank you again for all your partnership on this booking. We look forward to seeing you again when you next play in our area.

Anna and I just wanted to thank you, Alex and the other musicians for providing such lovely music at our annual fundraising event at Broughton Grange on Friday night. The evening was a huge success, we received lots of excellent feedback and all our guests had a wonderful time. The music helped to create a great atmosphere and make it a perfect evening. Once again, it was a pleasure to work with you, and I do hope we can work together again in the future.

I just want to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding. Your band was incredible! Literally perfect, we had so much fun and everyone came up to me to tell me how brilliant the band was - so thank you! So thank you so much and please let every member of the band know how brilliant they were - the music was an absolute highlight of a very special day!

The Vintage Strollers were really professional and easy to work with. They played during our ceremony which was outdoors and rainy and took it all in their stride. They were kind, flexible and easy-going on the day. Communication in advance was great and they were good with special requests.

Thank you once again for a fantastic night, Amber’s party was a huge success, and the band were a large part of that… the singers in particular were real crowd pleasers!!

Mike and and Mike Paul-Smith Music are truly the "go-to". Professional, organised, with top quality musicians delivering ear candy to the masses. The diverse range of musicians, possible arrangements and music styles means that they are a one stop shop.

Wedding Reception, Gloucestershire, 20 May 2023

I wanted to let you know how utterly fabulous the band was at our wedding on 20th May. We (and all of our guests - I truly have lost count of the number of compliments and excitement for the band!) were blown away and the whole evening was even better than we had imagined it would be. We appreciate that we were a much smaller crowd than your wonderful musicians are used to, but I hope they felt how much we all enjoyed every single song. More than 75% of our guests are musicians and so the music was always going to be pretty much the most important part of our wedding day. Each musician in the band was faultless and we had the absolute best time. It's been a while since we've got to a Down for the Count gig (I think our last was a night at Boisdale in Canary Wharf!!) because we don't live in London anymore, and this evening allowed us to relive what we used to love doing! I can't thank Simon and the rest of the band enough for making our wedding so memorable and fantastic.

Wedding Reception, West Mill, Derby, 1 April 2023

We hired the Soul Essentials Duo for our wedding ceremony and drinks reception at the West Mill, Derby and couldn’t have been happier with our choice! A super classy addition to our day and created the perfect atmosphere for our guests. Mike was easy to communicate with and I would highly recommend Mike Paul-Smith Music in any combination for their talent and professionalism.

That was amazing!

Connie & Jamie

Wedding Reception, West Horsley Place, Surrey, 3 Dec 2022

I wanted to send you a note - also on behalf of Jamie and our families - to say thank you for such a wonderful evening on Saturday.
The band was absolutely stupendous. They really made the party. And I am delighted we were able to squeeze the ten-piece into the room - worth it in every way!
Please also extend my and Jamie's thanks to all ten members, and to our sound engineer for ensuring everything ran smoothly

Hi Mike
I just wanted to thank you again for a brilliant night.
Breakfast talk was full of amazing compliments about the band.
Please pass on our gratitude to all the band members for making our night fabulous fun.
Best wishes.

Party, Birmingham Town Hall, 25 Nov 2022

Great band - would highly recommend. We hired the band for a large event, and from beginning to end they worked well with us, from selecting the right PA equipment to tailoring a set to suit the theme of our event. They also tried hard to work around some logistical issues we were having at the venue. The performances were fantastic and we've had feedback from guests to confirm this, and invoicing/payment was all very easy. Would highly recommend.

Just a quick note to say thank you so much to you and all of the band - we had such a fantastic time on Saturday night, and you guys were exceptional, as always!! I have had so much comments about what a talented bunch you are. Set list was fantastic and my feet have just about recovered from all that dancing!!
