We recently had Chris Stocks and The Guardians at our wedding. From booking to the big day everything went smoothly. We requested a one off/special song for our first dance which Chris did acoustically and took the time to get it exactly how we wanted. All the guests raved about the band and it couldn’t have gone better. A number of guests said they were the best band they’d seen at a wedding. I can not recommend these guys enough. If you’re after a band don’t hesitate. Book them and they will not disappoint.

Chris was amazing from setting up til the end. His singing is amazing. He made the evening of our wedding fantastic. Our guests thought he was great and we certainly did. I spent so much of the night dancing. I would highly recommend him.

We booked Chris to play at our wedding on Saturday. Chris played a solo acoustic set during the drinks reception and the full band played the evening reception.
From point of booking right through to the big day Chris was outstanding. Always quick to answer emails and nothing was too much trouble. It really put our minds at ease knowing we were dealing with such a professional.
On the big day itself Chris and the band were fantastic. I lost track of how many guests asked who the band were and where did we find them. Everybody was so complimentary of them. The dance floor was full all night long and everybody had the time of their lives.
The set list was faultless, the performance superb and from start to finish everybody was simply stunned at how outstanding Chris and the band sounded. Chris even learnt an acoustic song of our choice for our dance for which his voice sounded incredible.
Thank you for such a great day and evening, I would not hesitate to book you again for any event. THANK YOU.
Chris Stocks and the Guardians played at our wedding recently. Chris was able to accommodate our first dance request which was really meant the world to us. The band really made the evening, with lots of guests commenting on how good the band where! Absolute set of pro's and would highly recommend!

We booked Chris for the drinks reception at our wedding and he was absolutely brilliant! He was very professional and prompt at replying to my questions. He got the wedding off to a great start for all of our guests, they all commented what an amazing singer and guitarist he was. Chris was completely self-sufficient so it just made the day run so smoothly for us. We are very grateful, he was worth every penny and more.
Colette Purvis, Newcastle upon Tyne
Wow what can I say the service we received on sat 2nd sept at The Anchor Inn Whittonstall for our wedding was brilliant, excellent atmosphere and song choices my feet are still hurting from all the dancing.
Everyone commented how good you made the night, highly recommend and thank you.
Sarah Probin, Ashford
Chris and his band were just incredibly easy to deal with from start to finish. He kept in touch throughout the planning process to make sure we were happy, and on the night he delivered such a great performance that he had the audience demanding more songs. He kindly obliged even though they must have been exhausted! They even learned a special song for my Dad which was such a special moment for me. Great range of songs that had the dance floor full throughout the night - thanks lads. A night to remember!
Played at Crown Inn at Roecliffe. Kept people on the dance floor all night. Were able to deal with our last minute change of first dance song smoothly. Drummer gave my little boy his drum sticks as he was mesmerised by then all night so was a nice touch for him to remember the day by. Would recommend very highly.
Jodie Gobbi, Wetherby
Chris, thank you so much for playing at our wedding!
Everybody has commented how great you were and what a cracking voice you had and were still complementing your set on Sunday, so you definitely made a great impact on us and our guests! You arrived on time and always kept in touch leading up to the wedding which helped us massively.
We honestly cannot thank you enough, you rocked! Jodie and Jonathan.
Helen Walters, Derby
We booked Chris to play at our wedding reception which was hosted on a river boat. He was excellent during the planning stages and professionally answered any queries swiftly. He performed two sets at the reception and was awesome! His performance exceeded all expectations and the songs performed were perfectly pitched for our guests. His professionalism was well and truly tested when the canopy of the boat leaked upon him during heavy rain! He made our wedding very special by learning a song that had sentimental meaning to us and our guests. I would have no hesitation but to recommend Chris to others for events they are organising.
Julie Bolland, Bradford
We had an amazing Wedding Party. Chris played 2 acoustic sets and then was DJ for the rest of the evening. The play list Chris had was a great range of covers to suit all tastes and we did not feel the need to change anything. All our guests commented on how good Chris was and I am sure some friends will book him for future. I would highly recommend Chris for a party as the live sets add great ambiance to your party.
Katrina Vaughan, Leeds
Chris was absolutely fantastic from start to finish! He stayed in close contact with us to prepare the day and was willing to answer any of my questions to help things run smoothly.
On the day Chris was fantastic - our guests were all so impressed and loved the music! What a fantastic singer and artist! We would defiantly recommend Chris! Thank you for making our day so special!!
Beth Reaney, Sheffield
Chris's service was incredible from the start of our emails to packing up at the end of the night. I got in touch with Chris via his website and discussed that I was getting married in a couple of months. I had quite a unique venue where dancing wasn't really possible but I wanted guests to have some fun and feel entertained. Chris did all of this and more and even managed to get us singing along!! He was brilliant on the night - needed no support from thank goodness, he just came in discreetly set up- played 2 fantastic sets and packed up! I couldn't have asked for me - plus incredibly honest - I over paid him without realising and he immediately let me know and transferred the money back. Brilliant - made our wedding perfect! Thanks Chris.
Mr & Mrs Nic Taylor, Manchester
Chris sang for us during our wedding ceremony. He learnt the song that I walked down the aisle to and recommended which part of the song would work best. He timed everything perfectly throughout the ceremony and sounded amazing. Thank you for creating such a personal experience.
Sharon Jayne Knight , Wigan
We would just like to say Chris was the icing on our cake at our wedding. The guests thought he was fantastic! He performed and was DJ from 5pm until 1am. He also did the same at my daughter’s wedding and that was the reason we booked him. Would highly recommend him 110%. He got the guests up dancing. Fab night. Very nice man constantly emailing. Very helpful. 5 star definitely.
Jessica North, Selby
Chris Stocks played for a Christmas party we hosted. He was wonderful, amazing voice, great song list and really got involved with our guests. Highly recommend, thank you.
Sarah Wiles, Sleaford
We booked Chris for our wedding on August and honestly he is the most professional, talented person I have met!! He went above and beyond from the instant we booked to helping choose music to make our wedding perfect! He also sang us into the church and through signing the register, simply stunning. Look forward to booking again. Huge thanks to you.
Laura Armstrong, Gateshead
Made my wedding! Most amazing band! Dance floor was full from start to finish. Played so many great songs and took requests from guests! Can't thank Chris and the band enough!
Tom Bowers, Thames Ditton
Chris and the band were bang on the money for what we wanted for our private function. They created a night that none of us will ever forget. Getting my brother on stage to live out a lifelong dream of being a front man was the icing on the cake. Cannot recommend these guys enough!
Amie B, Leeds
After searching through what seemed like a million bands for our wedding we finally came across Chris and thank god we did! From the moment we met him right until the end of our wedding, Chris was amazing. He played solo acoustic during the drinks reception which sounded fab. His band then joined later to sing our first dance (James Morrison - Won't Let You Go) which sounded amazing! The band then played during the evening playing all our favorite songs and getting the dance floor rocking. So many people have commented on how much they enjoyed the band which was obvious from how many people were on the dance floor throughout the night. Thank you so much Chris for helping to make our wedding day perfect. You're a true professional with a fantastic voice and we'd recommend you to anyone!
Hollie Parlour, Leeds
We hired Chris to play at our Wedding Reception Party in Leeds. Chris played in the afternoon during Cocktails and canapés and he was fantastic. His music choice was perfect for the setting and mood we wanted to achieve and he had a fantastic voice. Chris was a pleasure to deal with, really friendly, personable and professional. He was on time and we did not have to worry about thing on the day.
Many of our guests also commented on how great he was and if we have an event in the future I would be sure to contact Chris again. Thank you Chris!
E Richmond, Darlington
Chris Stocks played solo at our pub on NYE. Chris was very professional, punctual, and an extremely pleasant guy. Got on with it and conscientious to who his audience was and what type of songs he was playing. Very fitting for the evening and was certainly very enjoyable. Thank you Chris and hope to see you again!
Chris Handley, Huddersfield
Chris played solo at our wedding (Sept 2015) and was fantastic, from very first contact, meeting up to discuss, through to the big day Chris was extremely professional but also really personable.
Great guy and an even better voice, all our guests commented on how good he was, and is still being talked about a week later. He sang Lucky Man (Verve) for our first dance and was one of the best solo acoustic covers I've heard, I love the song anyway but it was Epic and a moment I will never forget in no small part to Chris. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Graham Wilson, Scunthorpe
Chris and John came to do an hours set after our meal for our wedding day on the 7th August 2015. We wanted an acoustic set as we both like this sort of music. This was a time for relaxation and a time for people to chill after filling their stomachs. This was absolutely awesome as both entertained our guests with their fabulous skill set. Both were accomplished musicians and entertained us and our guests for 80 minutes of nonstop music. My only regret was that they could not stop longer and play us in to the night which they would have done but our disco started at 7.30pm… Many of our guests commented on how good Chris and John were and how well they interacted with everyone throughout the set. We would like to place on record our thanks to Chris and John who helped make our special day even more special with their music. Everyone was in a great mood which was also down to their music they played. Anyone thinking of booking these guys please do as you will not be disappointed. "Class act". Thanks again Chris for the experience and it purely felt like a private performance by a class act… We would love to see the full band in action at some point …many thanks for contributing to our special day…
Ryan W, Leeds
Chris played a solo/acoustic set at our wedding in East Keswick. He was absolutely fantastic and an awesome addition to our wedding. His playlist covered a wide range of genres and decades and so suited all guests, playing both classics and contempory songs. A real crowd pleaser, everyone commented on how good he was and what a great atmosphere it added to the wedding. Despite booking Chris very last minute he was accommodating and took time to find out what we wanted, our musical tastes, and if there was anything specific we wanted to hear. We changed the running order a couple of times and Chris stayed flexible throughout to ensure we made the most of the time we had. He arrived early, and was in position playing by the time the bride/groom arrived. I cannot recommend Chris enough and he was easily the best money we spent at the wedding. Great bloke, great musician, and great addition to any wedding!
Stefan Sealey, Hexham
Chris and his band played at our wedding in rural Northumberland and became one of the highlights of the day. They were punctual, well prepared and set up without any fuss. Their two sets had everyone up and dancing. We could not have been happier. They have a great repertoire and gaged the mood of room very well. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thanks again Chris!
Eve isherwood , Brighouse
Chris and band were fantastic. Everyone raved about them. They played at my husband’s 65th birthday party. Good organisation. The booking was very simple and easy to do. Chris and band very friendly, nothing too much trouble. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the night.
Thank you for making the event such a success. Eve and Tim Isherwood.
Sarah marrow, Ossett
Wow!!! We had Chris and the band playing at our
Wedding.. They were amazing! Great variety of music all done well. Everyone got up for a dance and thoroughly enjoyed their evening. Could not have been any better!!
Caitlin Bryson, Manchester
Chris and the band were amazing! Chris started by doing a solo acoustic set which was great and was joined a bit later by the rest of the band to get the party started. In the lead up to the wedding Chris was amazing and made things so easy, and our expectations were surpassed on the day too! We received nothing but praise from our guests (some of who are fussy blighters) - people loved the song choices and everyone commented on how talented the whole band was as well as how much they loved Chris's voice! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris Stocks and The Guardians to anyone - thanks again!
Becci Hodgson, Whitby
We heard Chris and his band at a friend's wedding back in September, and wanted to book them for our wedding in June. The booking process was really easy and Chris got in contact straight away. They did not disappoint!! Brilliant range of songs and they had everyone dancing all night. All our guests commented on how fab they were. Thanks so much guys!!
Ben Manojlovic, Pudsey
Chris Stocks and The Guardians played at our wedding in North Yorkshire March 2015. The overall experience was excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris and the Band to others.
Right from the get go, Chris invited us to watch them audition. The audition was great and it gave us an insight into the kind of performance we could expect at our wedding. Booking was simple and the lines of communication where clear and open at all times.
The performance on the day was great, the band sang our first dance song live which made it even more special - looking at footage that our guests filmed of the dance, Chris and the band sound amazing, they really added something special to our wedding and we can't thank them enough. During the performance our guests were saying how good the band was and even since then people have commented saying how impressed they were.
Once again thanks for playing at our wedding and making the day a dream come true.
Cheers Ben and Gemma.
Nina Topping, Wigan
Chris made our wedding evening really special with a brilliant set list, a truly talent musician, a good night was had by all, only wish we would have had Chris for longer, lots of good feedback from all the wedding guests, a big thank you
Andrew Daly, Wigan
It is such a important part of any event to get the entertainment right, I can safely say that me and the wife was thrilled with our choice in picking Chris, great voice, can play the guitar well and to top it of is a nice fella, thanks very much for making our special day great with no hick ups, plenty of great reviews from all the guests and lots from the ladies, cheers mate.
Iain Bland, Hull
Recently booked Chris and The Guardians for my 40th and couldn't have been happier.
The playlist was superb and they were excellent - EVERY single guest commented on how good they were…..
Chris was in touch plenty of times beforehand and liaised with the DJ regarding playlists and sound - he took away a lot of the hassle that normally goes with these types of things…
I seriously don’t have a bad word to say…. I would recommend them over and over again!!
Amanda Cass, Leeds
Chris played for my Husband's 40th recently and his performance made the night!! He was brilliant and a really nice guy too. If you're considering booking Chris I would strongly recommend him - he was excellent, great voice!!
Mike Davies, Houghton le Spring
Chris Stocks and the Guardians put on a great end to our first family event. Not only did they perform really well on stage with a good mix of songs, but they were punctual, friendly and well prepared.
Jenny Dorree, Heckmondwike
Chris stocks and the guardian's played at our wedding reception in April and The dance floor was packed all night which was just what we asked for, our special requests for our first dance were done just beautifully and really added to our special day! Thank you so Much to Chris and the band!
Jenny Siddleworth, Rotherham
Chris played at my wedding this year and he was fantastic. Arrived early to set up, played songs to entertain all ages of our party and he even played our first dance perfectly. Great communication prior to the day and he even answered questions we were unsure about! Very polite and has an amazing voice! Thank you for making our day special!
