First of all can I just say Sam and I were overwhelmed with how amazing you guys were at our wedding. We knew you'd be good but you exceeded our expectations and our guests are still talking about how amazing you were (my two uncles who never dance at weddings were up dancing, now that says it all!).
As a nervous bride and groom you completely put us at ease throughout the whole process. From learning our first dance song, to calling us a few days before the wedding to run through the final details, you made the whole experience an absolute delight. Your repertoire of songs on the night was perfect and we have such fantastic memories of dancing the night away to Proud Mary!
We will be recommending you to all of our friends and family (many of whom have already asked us where we found you/heard about you) and we wish you the best of luck.
Charlie & Sam Bishop (Wedding, Pitt Hall Barn, Hampshire)
I wanted to drop you a note to say a huge huge thank you for performing at our wedding over a week ago now! We had the most wonderful day and we have had so many lovely comments about the band and your performance on the night. We can't wait to watch the video back now! We hope you all enjoyed yourselves too :-)
Thanks again for everything.
Laura & Andrew (Wedding, Pennyhill Park, Surrey)
Myself and Joanna would like to say a massive thanks for playing at our wedding. The entertainment was fantastic, we all enjoyed it so much.
We wish you all the very best for the future.
Neal & Joanna (Wedding, Caswell House, Oxfordshire)
We wanted to drop you an email to properly say thank you for making our wedding day even more memorable.
You guys were such a huge hit throughout the day, both as the acoustic duo and the full evening band. So many of our guests commented on how fantastic you were and how much energy and enthusiasm you had. You guys were so professional and friendly from start to finish during the planning process and helped to take one stress of our minds. We are only sorry we didn't get more time to dance! We will be sure to share your details with anyone we know planning a wedding.
Rosie & Steve
Mr & Mrs Winter-Fuller (Wedding, Gate Street Barn, Surrey)
We were blown away by you and the band, you completely made our wedding party. It was better than we could have even imagined! The energy was out of this world, and we have had no end of compliments over our choice! You guys were just AWESOME!
Thank you so so so so much for being brilliant, and we are already trying to think of an excuse for a party so we can hang out again :)
Kim & Clare (Wedding, Wasing Park, Berkshire)
Thank you for the best evening of music. We have had so many compliments and we didn't want the party to end! You were AMAZING!
Mr & Mrs Foster (Wedding, The Lensbury, Teddington)
Hi Talisha and Team Karizma,
Many thanks for your email but it is us that has to thank YOU! You were absolutely amazing on the day and you made the evening so special for us because everyone had the best time dancing! It was truly better than we could have imagined and you have a massive part to play in this. We will definitely see you soon (so we can bust out more of those moves!)
Mr and Mrs Frost (Wedding, Warbrook House, Hampshire)
A huge thank you to the amazing Karizma for preforming at our wedding! You guys are super talented and absolutely rocked the party! All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music and we loved the selection you played! On top of that, Talisha (lead singer and band manager) couldn't have been more helpful in the run up to the day - she always answered our emails promptly and was super friendly and easy to get along with! Can't recommend this band highly enough! 5 stars!
Zoe & Markus (Wedding, Gildings Barn, Surrey)
From making the initial enquiry, following through to playing at our wedding, Karizma had been very friendly, approachable and absolutely professional in advising and helping us out with our wedding day. It was a nice feeling to know there was a band who we could advise what are intentions and plans for the day would be, and to have Karizma set up their experience around us whilst liaising with planners and venue owners.
With an unfortunate experience with a different band who'd let us down before our big event, Karizma were more than flexible to help take the place and alleviate the pressures of playing on our big event. On the day, everything ran smoothly - the sound-check was so good that peeps were starting to dance to their songs. Volume levels were perfect, and everyone could still enjoy a conversation, yet it was loud enough to be immersed in the music. Their playlist was broad covering music that was appropriate for all ages. I must admit, it was difficult to walk away from the dance floor due to each song being as good as the previous!
We booked the 4-piece band for our rustic style wedding. The dynamics of the band were brilliant! A must see band if you are ever in their area! Since the wedding, all our guests had mentioned that they thought Karizma was amazing and would definitely recommend you to other functions! Thank-you kindly for helping make our day special :)
Mr & Mrs Cullum-Fernandez (Wedding, Ratsbury Barn, Kent)
We've just returned from honeymoon! Thank you so much for performing at our wedding, we both had a great night too. So many people have commented on what a great band you were, and that it made our day feel really special.
For us, having a band was a very important part of our wedding, and you were very professional and organised throughout, and kept us up to date, as our wedding got closer. We didn't have to worry about a thing, which meant we could just enjoy our evening, while you rocked the venue.
Your song list covered everything we wanted (& more).
Linda & Tim (Wedding, De Vere Venues Sunningdale Park, Berkshire)
We had such an amazing day on Saturday and enjoyed every second, we both are still on cloud 9 and running on adrenaline.
We wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the band for all your hard work in the lead up to and on the day. Anything I asked of you in the planning phases was never too much trouble and you stayed in contact with me from booking right up until the day. This made planning so much less stressful and easy going, so thank you.
Our phones have not stopped buzzing from guests telling us how great you guys were and what a fantastic atmosphere you created with your energy. Your presence on stage is electric and with your amazing voice it draws people to the dance floor in an instant.
Thank you for playing the one more song at the end I really felt this ended the night on a massive high and you coming into the crowd like you did was fantastic. Everyone has been talking about it!
Kate and John (Wedding, Rowhill Grange Hotel, Kent)
Thank you so much for performing at our wedding. You were incredible, everyone loved you. The final the song has been the talk across the breakfast table. You definitely got everyone in their dancing shoes for the evening. Thank you so much for being part of our big day.
Mr & Mrs Deakin (Wedding, Caswell House, Oxfordshire)
I just wanted to send you an email to say thank you so much for absolutely making our wedding evening! The music was fantastic and everyone absolutely loved it, even my Nan! A band was an absolute 'must' for us and I'm so glad we chose you guys! You guys were great from the first email I sent, to the evening of our wedding. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Katie & Nathaniel (Wedding, Upwaltham Barns, Sussex)
Karizma were fabulous for my Mum’s birthday party. Great music to dance to and fabulous vocals from Talisha. It made for a very special occasion!
Mrs Roy (Birthday Party, Pitt Hall Barn, Hampshire)
We booked Karizma for our wedding in June 2016, after trawling the internet for hours we managed to find what we wanted for our wedding. We were looking for a fun band with a good image to entertain our friends and family which varied in age groups. Karizma definitely delivered and the dance floor was full all night, they knew exactly what to do! As the wedding was in our garden there was some additional setting up for Karizma to do which they did seamlessly and independently. I would definitely recommend Karizma as a band and we had so many comments on how great they were and how great Talisha's voice is with many letters of thank you's from guests saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to! Thanks Karizma for being part of our day and helping us build our memories!
Jaime & Christian (Wedding, Surrey)
We hired Karizma after seeing their demo videos online. It's always slightly nerve racking as it is such a crucial part of a wedding, they were also very reasonable in terms of their rate which was great but does also add to the nerves! Talisha (the lead singer) was amazing and kept in regular contact in the run up the big day which gave us a lot of confidence. They were also very flexible around what we wanted, timings and song selections. On the day itself we had their two piece acoustic setup as well as the 4 piece + sax in the evening and they were amazing, everyone had such a good time. They even interacted with the crowd which added a great sense of fun. We are so very grateful to them for putting on such a good show and being a key part of an amazing day and evening. We could not recommend them enough. Thanks again guys.
Mr & Mrs Brosnan-Green (Wedding, Farbridge, Sussex)
Thanks so much once again for performing for us on our big day! You were wonderful from the very start - always so patient and friendly when discussing our music choices and we really appreciated it that you learnt our first dance.
All our guests loved your music and everyone kept saying how talented, energetic and amazing your all are!! Your energy and passion for music is infectious and we couldn't stop dancing all night which is exactly what we wanted! We very heartily recommend you to anyone who wants to make their big day extra special and wishes to add a sprinkle of vibrancy, good humour and most of all lots of dancing to their wedding!!! Best band ever and very pleasant & friendly to top it all up :)
Ina & Tom (Wedding, Eynsham Hall, Oxfordshire)
We have just got back from our lovely honeymoon and back to reality.
We are so glad that you enjoyed playing at our wedding but definitely not as glad as we were for having you as a huge part of our day.
It was honestly an absolute delight to have Talisha and Chris playing throughout the ceremony and dinner and most of our guests are still talking about how incredible the band were weeks down the line. I particularly enjoyed the random dance off’s and I know John really enjoyed it when it got a bit hip hop!
We have had people asking for your details and will be sure to pass them on. We would certainly have no problem recommending you guys.
Lesley & John Jordan (The Aviator Hotel, Wedding, Hampshire)
Karizma were the perfect band for our wedding. A pleasure to work with leading up to the day and on the day they were punctual, professional and obviously put on a fantastic performance. They made our special day even more memorable. 5/5!
Sarah & Brent (Wedding, Farbridge, West Sussex)
Wow, where to start with you guys. You were fantastic from the first email right through to the very end of our night.
Working in music I was very particular about which band we chose, I think Jonny was going out of his mind listening to all the You Tube clips I was playing him but I knew instantly when I heard your voice Talisha that you were the right band for us. Such a soulful sound with a tight band behind you you really kicked the energy into our special day and our packed dance floor was all the proof you needed that you were the perfect choice. I had to leave the dance floor at one point as I was so hot from dancing so much.
If anyone is looking for a high energy band with huge talent and amazing organisational skills you really have to look no further. Talisha always got back to us within an hour and was hugely accommodating with our requests and even helped me arrange a special surprise for my new husband. Karizma took our wedding to the next level and our guests are still talking about how much fun they had on the dance floor, I am just waiting for another excuse to book you all again!
Kate & Jonny (Wedding, Stowe House, Buckinghamshire)
Thanks so much for your amazing set at the wedding - we were properly blown away by you and the band and couldn't have asked for a better wedding band - so many rocking song choices and performances. In a day of great moments and talking points you were definitely one of the highlights!
Mr & Mrs Sawyer (Wedding, Shakespeare's Globe, London)
You just gave us the best evening of our lives! Thank you so much for all your help on the run up to the big day and for giving a wonderful show on the night.....we lost count of how many people asked us 'where did you find these guys?!!!' Your set-list was perfect, it was just what we were after, and we will never forget your performance of Proud Mary! We really appreciated you being so accommodating with our music taste, and for working with such a small venue - we couldn't have asked for more - you guys are second to none!
Mr & Mrs Thompson (Wedding, Chichester, West Sussex)
Lucy & I would like to say a massive thank you for completely rocking our wedding, you are even better than your promo video’s suggests. All of our guests absolutely loved you and have been raving about how much fun they had.
From the lovely acoustic duo, to our awesome first limbo and your rocking disco set late into the night, you were so much fun and sounded great the whole time. Your voice is perfect and the band are awesome but the best thing about you is the atmosphere you create. Your obvious love for preforming completely rubbed off on everyone there. From the very first tune the dance floor was packed, even our parents bounced around all evening.
I also have to comment on how professional you were in the lead up and on the day of the wedding. Absolutely zero hassle, we didn’t even know you had arrived until we heard you at the reception, we didn’t notice you sound check or leave, just great music for the whole day and evening. We couldn’t have asked for more.
We would definitely, definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a band.
Karizma Band you are absolutely fantastic!!!!
Gary & Lucy (Wedding, Wildwood Bluebell, Glouchestershire)
Thank you for a great performance. We had great feedback from everyone at event!
Lindsay McCurdy (Corporate Event, Emirates Stadium, London)
To anyone booking a wedding band or events band STOP right now you don't need to look any further Karizma doesn't even describe half of the amount of passion and charisma that this band have they truly made our wedding so special and were the talking point of all the guests after the big day, I am so glad we booked them and they really were the best band ever. Thank you guys so much! xxxxx
Anna & Dave Buzzard (Wedding, Pentillie Castle, Cornwall)
We loved having you at our wedding! The feedback from all of our friends and family has been so positive! They didn't want it to stop!
Thank you for adapting to chances on the night so well and for engaging with all of our guests- lots of the girls complimented you Talisha on your dance moves! We were really impressed with your professional yet friendly nature when talking to us, made feel really comfortable and knew that we could trust you to play to what the crowd wanted!
We would definitely recommend you to other couples who we know are getting married. The customer interaction before the wedding was also great- a lengthy phonecall about the logistics and regular emails about song requests etc - we absolutely loved that you learnt and played Country Girl for us!
Thank you all so much again, hopefully see you again at another wedding or function.
Jenny & Adam (Wedding, East Court Mansion, West Sussex)
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and the guys for a great evenings’ entertainment last Friday. I have received many good comments regarding the entertainment provided and I would like to thank you for making the day such a success.
Kevin Pickett (Charity Event, Bishopswood Golf Club, Hampshire)
Please can I pass on huge congratulations for your performance- you sounded amazing! I had great feedback and everyone loved the band. Finding you was definitely one of the best things we did!
Shellie (Byfleet Primary School, West Byfleet, Surrey)
We hired Karizma to play 3 different sets at our wedding in September 2014. They played acoustically before,during and after our ceremony. They also played acoustic during afternoon tea and then we had a threesome play more lively stuff with percussion in the evening, therefore they were with us all day! I was in contact with Talisha via email and phone before the day and she was very patient and accommodating to our requests! Talisha's voice is just beautiful, absolutely flawless. They are fantastic - they played what we wanted to hear, interacted with our friends and family and were generally a joy to have at our wedding. They are reliable, professional and talented as well as being lovely people. If you're looking for live music at your wedding or party I would highly recommend Karizma.
Katie and Vicki Wilkinson (Coppleridge Inn, Dorset, Wedding 2014)
Thank you guys it was terrific!
Andrew Radford (Royal Holloway University, London, Wedding 2014)
We have the pleasure of working with Karizma on a regular basis and are always impressed by the high level of professionalism, faultless performances and infectious energy they bring. They are awesomely talented and can perform a fantastic range of songs. We cannot recommend them highly enough as a live act!
Jacqui Brown (Lark Recordings, Guildford, 2015)
Absolutely brilliant! You are an incredibly good band playing all the great songs. You got everyone up and dancing! It’s been incredible, thank you so much!
Mark (Thames Rowing Club, London 2015)
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, you helped to create an amazing atmosphere for us and our guests. We are still getting compliments on how nice it was to hear live music and done so beautifully too. Love Mr & Mrs B
Joff and Claire Bicker (Northbrook Park, Bentley, Wedding 2014)
Superb entertainers! Karizma brought everyone to the dance floor and played music to cater all tastes. They were extremely well presented and held the utmost professional manner whilst communicating.
Rebecca (The Amba Hotel, London, Valentine's Ball 2015)
What a fantastic night! Karizma were faultless and everybody enjoyed themselves. Everybody thought Talisha was a great performer and singer and the band were enthusiastic, funky and professional. We were really happy with the music and would recommend the band to anyone!
Andrew & Lauren Foyle (The Bath Arms, Wedding, Wiltshire)
You were amazing! You really helped make the ceremony special and everyone commented on how great the music was.
You kept people on the dancefloor all night and lots of those at the reception mentioned how amazing you were.
You helped make our day exactly like how we wanted it to be.
Thank you and hope to see you playing somewhere soon!
Lizzie & John Reid (The Canbury Arms, Wedding, London)
WOW - what can we say!! Karizma made our reception, they just got it! We got married at Parley Manor in Dorset and these guys were the icing on the cake. They knew what to do and when to do it and got the dance floor alive. They played a fantastic set but more importantly the energy they delivered was exceptional. They blew us away and we had continuous comments all night from our guests about how fantastic they were and what an amazing performance Talisha gave. From the point of booking to the end of the night this was the easiest part of the whole wedding arrangements. BOOK THEM!
Mark & Amanda (Wedding, Parley Manor, Christchurch)
Hi Talisha, Thanks for a great set, sorting out the playlist and helping make it just a brilliant day for us! Beth and I loved it, as did everyone else on the dancefloor!
Jon & Beth (Wedding, Northcote House, Berkshire)
WOW! Talisha and the band went well and truly out of their way to attend our wedding and make it a 5 star night! We felt at ease from first chat, with lots of contact with Talisha, so friendly and happy to discuss how the day would go. The performance from the band was truly out of this world and it made our wedding more than perfect. If your looking for a fun, happy, good quality, classy band then "Karizma" is definitely the right one. Everyone that came to our wedding said how great the music was. On a personal note we loved that they had a go in the photobooth too! Thank you Karizma. We can only hope we get a chance to see you again.
Mr and Mrs Adams (Wedding, Queens Hotel, Portsmouth)
In searching for a band for our special day, the unique, stunning sound of Karizima really set them apart and as soon as we met to talk about the details of the day, we knew we had made the right decision. They played as an acoustic duo during the drinks reception which warmed the atmosphere and was the perfect subtle start to the big party that would follow. The band were truly outstanding in the evening, setting a very cool vibe that put a really great twist on some classic tunes. The dance-floor was full which is proof that everyone had a good time and so many of our guests have since been gushing with compliments about the band. Talisha was a true pleasure to deal with from start to finish and with the band, our day was everything we wanted and more.
Lee & Emily (Wedding, Rivervale Barn, Hampshire)
We couldn't have chosen a more perfect band for our day. Right from the start their energy was infectious with our guests dancing right from the beginning to the end of their set.
Their own interpretation of songs along with Talisha's voice was amazing. Their sets were seamless and exceptionally professional.
During the lead up to the wedding Talisha was very helpful and was supportive of any requests we particularly had.
We only wish we had another occasion to have them play again for us. Thank you once again for making our day so perfect.
Roshan & Nicole (Wedding, Paradise by Way, London)
Karizma were fantastic, we wanted a sound that would get everyone up dancing and having fun and that’s exactly what they delivered. Thank you Talisha and all of the band who helped make it such a great day for us!!
Ollie & Aisha (Wedding, Sherborne Castle, Dorset)
