What People Say:
Helen Dobson - retirement party - Hertfordshire - May 2015
"Clear Cut were fantastic! The music they played couldn't have been better suited to my perfect playlist! I was especially pleased that they were able to fulfil the resquest I made of playing a song not on their playlist. There is no doubt that they made my 40th party rock!!!"
Helen Burns - 40th birthday party - Derbyshire - September 2014
"Thoroughly professional and easy to deal with. We were running late with our meal (of course) and they just played a straight through set of excellent songs which got the dancefloor full from the start and right until the end. A real pleasure to have them at our wedding reception."
Andrew Armour - wedding reception - Pembrokeshire - September 2013

Everything they suggested paid off and we have had so many comments on the night and since about what a great choice of band we'd made. I couldn't hesitate to recommend them!"

Zoe Harclerode - wedding reception - Worcestershire - January 2007
"Clear Cut were excellent, singing songs across the years and even some songs we had forgotton about that got everyone dancing. Everyone commented on how good the music was, even our teenage niece who was dancing all night - and usually will only dance to 'cool music'. When we left the band played 'Brown Eyed Girl' and we kissed everyone goodbye in a circle, but it took another song to follow as there were so many people! We had hoped guests would follow us to our car to wave us off. However, there was no chance as our guests simply waved us at the door and then turned around and carried on dancing!! At least everyone was having a great time and enjoying the music! Please pass our thanks on to the band."
