Booked Melissa and Reece for a Wedding Anniversary
5.0  

Melissa and Reece performed for our 40th Wedding Anniversary. They communicated clearly in advance of the party and arrived early to set up. Their music provided a great ambience, never intrusive but full of skill, with great musicianship and singing. All our guests said how much they enjoyed their performance and they certainly contributed a great deal towards making this a memorable event.

Melissa and Reece opened our Mayor's Charity Casino Night at the Town Hall in Haywards Heath in aid of the Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity. Their soulful tunes were a beautiful way to open the event and every guest remarked on how lovely they looked and sounded. They were a delight to work with, professional and polite and I would not hesitate to use them again - I will be looking out to see where they are playing next to catch another glimpse of their gorgeous repertoire.

Melissa and Reece we’re booked very last minute for our wedding day.
They sorted contracts very quickly and were very responsive over email. Sending PAT certificates etc directly to our venue so we didn’t need to worry.
Extremely professional!
We didn’t really get to enjoy them as bride & Groom, but our guests gave great feedback and said the music was great.
Definitely recommend!
They travelled to us to from Brighton to Surrey and were very reasonably priced too.

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. It was so great to have you playing as our guests arrived, it was very welcoming. You really set the mood for the day. I could hear you as I was getting ready and as the excitement mounted.
Your second set after the ceremony was fantastic too- the songs you played were perfect for the occasion and captured the relaxed and happy atmosphere perfectly.
Beautiful voice & beautiful music! Wish we could do it all again!

My daughter Hannah and I saw Melissa & Reece at Browns on Mother's day. After hearing a couple of songs we knew that we wanted them to play at her wedding at Pangdean on 31 March. They were fantastic, they are two very talented artists. The sound and song choice was perfect, we had so many positive comments from our guests. I could have sat for hours listening to them. We would highly recommend them and would certainly book them for another event. I will now follow their facebook page so that i can go and hear them again. Thank you, you helped make the day perfect.

My daughter & I did an "online audition" & we were very impressed with Melissa & Reece who we booked for a big birthday celebration & we weren't disappointed. They were very professional, friendly & talented. Their performance was most appreciated & enjoyed by our guests, as well as our near neighbours who had a free concert from their garden. Highly recommend & would book again. Thank you Melissa & Reece!

A fabulous treat to have Melissa and Reece provide the music for the Chairman's Summer Civic Reception at Hendall Manor Barns. As the organiser it was pleasure to work with them, they kept in close touch from the moment they were booked and took care to understand what we were looking for.
The performance was superb and I've received lots of lovely feedback from the guests. A big thank you from myself and the Chairman!

Was a delight to have Melissa & Reece at Browns Bar & Brasserie to see in the New Year. Beautiful sound and great song choices and we can't wait to have them back. We had the pleasure of hearing 3, 45 Minute sets and we had fantastic feedback from all our guests. It was the perfect tempo and arrangment for our dining guests. Looking forward to working with you more this year! - Thank you, from Abbey, James and all the team at Browns Brighton

Melissa and Reece played at our wedding on Saturday and we couldn't recommend them more. Whether singing an old classic or a more current song, Melissa's beautiful, soulful voice transforms it into something so special. They both put so much work into preparing and performing their set, the result is perfect, and they made a classy and magical addition to our day. Have your tissues at hand though, when Melissa started singing one of our special requests it moved us to tears!
