““The Fontains arrived on time ( slightly early actually! ) and were an absolute pleasure to deal with. They set up with a minimum of fuss and were ready to start the evening off as requested at 7. Some of our guests were a little late in arriving and the band did everything to commodate a change in running times and were very flexible, polite and approachable. Everything we had requested was provided and the track choice for the DJ sets was excellent given that we had only provided guidelines as to the sort of music we preferred. When it came to the live music, the band were everything we had hoped for. They gave an entertaining, energetic performance and every guest we have spoken to has said what a great day they had followed by “and the band were fantastic! ” So thank you for helping to make our day such a memorable and enjoyable one. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend AMV and The Fontains in particular to anyone seeking a band for their wedding.
