"They were the ‘icing on the cake’ at our 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration when they definitely ‘hit the mark’ with a 100+ diverse audience. The dance floor was never empty! A 5* band and we recommend them very highly. Best wishes and, once again, thank you for a marvellous performance at our 50th!!!"

Steve and Chris

"5 stars - Chequers are Highly Recommended. Great comms in the lead up to our conference. They even contacted our dancers before the event so that they could liaise with music which took the pressure off the event organisers. They sounded amazing and got everyone on the dance floor. Finished the 3 day conference with a bang! Professional and fun!"

Kelly S September 2022

"I would like to congratulate Checkmate on providing an excellent evening of party/ ball music on May 7th 2022. They played all the songs I requested and were very flexible with the timings. All my guests said how excellent the band was. They all loved the songs. The band were also helpful in getting people on the dance floor when there was a lull. I would recommend them to anyone having a petty, ball or wedding."

Madeline T May 2022

"Just right for the event. The band played something for everyone. The dance floor was full from start to finish. Band really helped in raising spirits, which contributed to a successful fund raising event for Prostate Cancer UK. Thank you."

John BSeptember 2021

"Tremendous, superb, brilliant, outstanding are just a few words to describe our experience of the group who played at my wife's 70th and her mum's 90th birthday party. They had great interaction with my guests and the song choices were spot on. The saxophonist added that extra dimension and I would also recommend this choice. The group gave us an afternoon which we will remember for a long time. Thank You."

Keith HAugust 2021

"Highly recommend this fantastic band. Wide range of music, accommodated our late requests. Encouraged our 12 year old to sing her party piece for us "Skyfall" by Adele, by rehearsing beforehand with her. Professional, friendly, very well presented. All our guests loved them. They got us all up dancing from 1st song. You can not go wrong with this band for any occasion. Thank you, Angela Nick Cara"
