My wife and I hired Craig Francis music for our wedding in November 2021. Craig himself was very responsive, friendly and approachable, and always replied to emails promptly. He's full of good advice and very knowledgeable about how run an event from a music and timing perspective, as well as about music (we ended up going with one of his suggestions for our first dance). The band on the day was excellent - we got a two-piece for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and four for the ceremony. We personally loved all of it - each configuration brought just the energy that was required, and overall the whole day and night was a blast, in no small part thanks to Craig and his team. Multiple guests commented on how much fun they had and how great the live music was. We're extraordinarily happy with our choice to go with Craig and his crew, and highly recommend them for anyone looking for a band.

Craig Francis Music performed at our wedding in May and honestly, they were flawless. We intended on booking a 4 piece band, but after seeing the showcase in person, we NEEDED the brass! With our 7 piece band it also included an acoustic duo for the ceremony and the canape hour. Whenever I think about the arrangement they did for our chosen song I walked down the aisle to, I get so emotional, it was absolutely breathtaking. Craig was just a dream to work with, he is friendly, funny and professional. He made the process very simple and stress free. I felt like all we had to do was decide on 3 songs, it was clear we were in very capable hands. Everyone was talking about how incredible the band was all through the night and after the wedding too. Amazing vocalists, amazing sounds and I wish I could have another event just to have them perform again!

Craig Francis Music was absolutely amazing! They had our guests up and dancing from the very start, having a 7 piece band made our night that extra bit special. Craig and his band went above and beyond our expectations from the showcase to the planning meetings to then our wedding day. We couldn’t be more happier that we chose Craig Francis Music and would recommend them to anyone. Craig Francis’ professionalism and ability to connect and build a relationship with us did not go unnoticed and we thank you again!

My wife and I were absolutely thrilled with the band from Craig Francis Music at our wedding. Craig was lovely to work with - we got the impression right from the start that he was organised, experienced and believed in quality of service. It was a great relief to have someone so professional looking after the music at our wedding. We came in with a range of specific requests for the music and were really pleased that Craig and the band were able to cater to our needs to a tee. Even though Craig is experienced enough to run the whole show and call all the shots, he was very respectful of what we wanted from the night and it was delivered just as we'd hoped! On the day itself, the 4-piece band played wonderfully and our guests were blown away by the quality of the music. Even though Craig himself came down with illness and was not able to perform, he had terrific back-up plans in place and his replacement was just as good. The dance floor was buzzing all night and it was clear that the band were enjoying themselves almost as much as the guests, and of course, my wife and I! We wholeheartedly recommend Craig and the team to anyone considering them!

My husband and I hired Craig Francis Music for our wedding in March 2022. From the initial email after watching all the band videos online, to coming to see a showcase and booking the band, Craig was fantastic to work with, always friendly and very responsive to emails. The band on the day was excellent. We had Craig and Berni as our acoustic duo for the ceremony and they did a great job with all our ceremony songs. We then had Berni and Craig on vocals with the 5 piece band for our reception. They absolutely nailed our first dance song, which they learnt for the day - it was absolutely fantastic and better than I could have imagined! The rest of the night is a blur of dancing, all our guests commented on how great the band was. Would definitely recommend Craig Francis Music
