"We hosted 90 of our friends and family from England for our special day in France and we cannot recommend highly enough The Sabres for your wedding band. They have a fantastic repertoire of songs and they can get a crowd in the mood to party. Switching from rock and indie hits like The Arctic Monkeys to mainstream pop from the likes of Bruno Mars is no trouble for the band. They can play anything and sound great doing it. They kept the dance floor full at all times and were a pleasure to have involved with on our day. We even booked them for a 90-minute acoustic cocktail set after the ceremony and people were dancing in the sun before the dinner had even started. Thank you for an amazing evening!"

"The band were great! Their set list was just right to get the party started. They even let my friend use the mic to ‘gift’ me a song. Communication in the run up to the event was good and on the night they were great at listening to instructions (e.g. when to wrap up with last songs etc). Would highly recommend!"

"We booked The Sabres for our wedding and they were amazing! The lead singer has a great voice and created a fantastic rapport with the guests. All of the musicians were first class. I would recommend them to anyone. The whole service of booking a band was simple with FixTheMusic and their professional staff."

"Hi Damien, We are back from honeymoon now and we wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding. You and the band were absolutely fantastic and a real highlight of our weekend. So many of our guests have said how much they enjoyed your set and it was really a pleasure working with you beforehand on the arrangements. We’d be happy to recommend you to anyone – particularly as you catered so well to our audience with the mixture of rock, pop and Bhangra! Thanks very much again and all the best, Natalie."

"Hi Ed, Sorry for the late reply, we've been super busy these last few weeks. Just wanted to say a huge thank you to the band, they were incredible. Extremely talented team and they really created a great atmosphere. Everyone was impressed with their playing and with their songs, even the vendors asked me for their details. Hope they all had a good time, apologies for some of the delays when they arrived. The waitresses had a lot on their plate. Thanks again for the amazing memories. Capucine and Rob."

"We chose The Sabres to provide musical entertainment at our wedding, and they were absolutely fantastic. From the first minute, they delighted all of our guests, fans of Pop & Rock music like the others, and all generations. Even our musician friends were amazed! You can trust Damien, Stéphan and Hervé with your eyes closed. They are exceptional musicians, extremely professional, who were very accommodating and took all necessary precautions to make our party a real success. For us and for our guests, their concert will remain without a doubt a highlight of our evening! Thanks to them with all our hearts!"

"Dear Damien and The Sabres…I know I said it on the night (but I was a little intoxicated at that point) so I just wanted to send you a little note to say a HUGE HUGE thank you for all of your efforts on our wedding day. SO many people have come up to say how utterly fantastic they thought you were. I know we seemed like a ‘peculiar’ bunch of people, wanting old school garage – often on repeat (cringe), for most of the night (and in hindsight I don’t think the oldies knew what to make of most of us either! ha) but I can honestly say that everyone had the most fantastic time and that is down to the effort that everyone, including yourselves, put in. You were so efficient in getting back to me Damien, you put my mind at rest COMPLETELY in the lead up to the wedding, and I can’t tell you how grateful I was for that. The party was a really important part of the day for us – hoping that everyone would have a good time, and when so much is being organised and going on it was so settling to know that you had everything under control and was SO SO very accommodating. I appreciate that not everyone would accept a playlist of a million and one songs to download for the day!! You were incredible. I’d book you again no matter where in the world we were partying! Huge HUGE thanks, Laura and Grant xxx"

"Hi Damien, Nicolas, We hope you are well, and have been enjoying the rest of your summer. I’m sure you’ve been very busy performing at many weddings this summer! Mitch and I have been reminiscing about our wedding day ever since July 1 and wanted to extend our complete gratitude and thanks, once again, for everything you did to make the day so special. From the beginning Mitch and I were really excited to have The Sabres play at our wedding, but we had no idea just how much of an impact it would make. Not only did we love you, but all of our guests were blown away by your talent. You really lightened up the dance floor all night long! We had so many guests complimenting your performance. Personally, I will never forget the moment where you played Brown Eyed Girl for the father-daughter dance. It was so much fun, and so perfectly captured my relationship with my dad. This will forever be a cherished memory for me. Another one of our favourite memories was at the end of the night, when all our guests were chanting “one more song!” for the band to continue to play. Nobody wanted it to be over! It truly was the best day of our lives and we are so honoured to have The Sabres as a wonderful memory to look back on. Thank you for helping us create our perfect day. We hope you have an amazing rest of your summer. All our love, Hannah and Mitch xx"

"It was an absolute success! Damien & The Sabres were brilliant!"
– Anna Williams (wedding planner), 19 September 2019, wedding at Château Valmy, Argelès-sur-Mer, France
"We absolutely LOVED The Sabres! Firstly their manager has been such a pleasure to work with leading up to the event and has been quick in replying and super helpful with any questions we had. The band was super professional as well and even helped set up the video projector and mic for the speeches during dinner. They put on an amazing show and really knew how to get the dance floor started and keep it going all night! Also they were sweet to take any song requests that I had provided them prior to the big day. They really made the party unforgettable and we get so happy when we think about it! Thanks guys! I have attached a photo of them from the event. I’m hoping to receive more, if so I’ll forward. Many thanks, Emilie."
