“This is a letter to express my greatest thanks to you and your fellow band members for your most excellent performance at the Officers Mess Summer Ball on 1st July 06. Chemistry was nothing short of “Excellent” and you made the evening. You all arrived very professionally and in ample time to set up and get ready, placing my mind at ease at such a busy evening. The standard of music was outstanding with the piano music, the party music and the disco. Everyone has commented to me. Please pass on my thanks and appreciation to the other members of the band and I thankyou for all your help in making the function a huge success.”
Flt Lt T G Lamont, Military Summer Ball, Southwick Park
“The Officers’ Mess would like to pass on their sincere thanks for the fantastic performance by the band Chemistry. In particular, Wendy for her personal touch throughout the organisation of the evening. The ball would not have been as successful were it not for the band’s ability to “read” the audience and perform brilliantly. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves dancing to some classic hits. Our thanks extend to the Band’s DJ who provided an excellent way to round-up the evening. We would like to pass on our our thanks and gratitude for all the help and careful organisation. We would have no hesitation in recommending their professional services.”
Rebecca & Kristian Bowry, Wedding in Paris Chateau – July 2012
“Chemistry are a great band for a wedding. They got the vibe just right, got us all up dancing, everyone loved them. For weeks afterwards people were commenting on how good the band was. They pulled the crowd together with their great choices of classic tracks that reminded us of fun days gone by. They also did an amazing acoustic set whilst we had cocktails on the lawn – again something that all our guests really enjoyed.”
You guys really were amazing xx Becks & Kristian

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for giving such a fantastic performance at our wedding.

“The Campion and Brown family would like to thank Chemistry for giving us the best New Years Eve we have ever had. Everyone in the band were fantastic, and all the guests paid compliments and all wanted to know who you were. Thank you so much for making the evening such fun and being so friendly to us all. We were a mixture of ages and thanks to your choice of music were all up and dancing. We will recommend you to all our friends. Thanks again, and very best wishes to all of you. “
Love from Nicola and Jim Beasley Suffolk xx
“We just wanted to say a huge ‘thank you’ for playing at our wedding at Latimer House on May 20th. We had the best day of our lives and you guys were all fantastic. We have had so many compliments on the band and the dancefloor was constantly packed. We didn’t want the party to finish. We would have no hesitation in recommending you and we wish you all the very best for the future. Thanks again, it was an awesome party! “
Denise Ware, Bearwood College Summer Ball
“What a great band Chemistry were last night. Everyone was raving about them and already they are saying they want them back next year. The music choices were perfect for the age range, which was one of the most common comments being made. What a nice bunch of people the band members are, and they did a brilliant job. If they ever want a reference please just ask.”
Event organiser, Summer Party (c.180 ppl), Bucks
“We were, to be honest, seriously impressed at how professional this band was. Very, very good indeed. By far the most entertaining, professional and convincing cover band we’ve ever seen. When they played Robbie Williams we thought he was up there on stage! Very, very high energy – if you don’t want everyone up dancing then don’t hire them. The two lead singers (male & female) obviously spend a lot of time in the gym – that was impressive too!”
Owner, Queens Head, Henley
“Chemistry certainly lived up to their name, a fantastic night with a great atmosphere … a catalyst to make the evening an enjoyable one for everyone concerned!”
Event organiser, Military Summer Ball, Berks
“Dear Bill & Wendy, On behalf of 42 Engineer Regiment, Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess I would like to thank you for making our Summer Ball a success. I have had many comments about how good the entertainment was throughout the evening. Please can you pass on our thanks to the band. Once again, thank you very much”
PTA Head, Private School Summer Ball, Herts
“Chemistry played our Duncombe School summer ball for the first time last July. I’ve got to say they were just great! Performing a mix of songs and styles that really got us going, we all had a fantastic time dancing to the small hours. Chemistry really delivered for us on the night, excellent musicianship and entertainment value – encore!!”
Father of the Bride, Berkshire Wedding
“I am not sure if mere words can express how grateful Margaret and I are for your performance on Saturday evening and your contribution to the success of Juliette and Allan’s Wedding Day and Reception. Your talent was obvious to everyone who had the privilege of being entertained by you. I cannot tell you how many compliments you received from the guests. It was not only your performance that was outstanding but also your commitment to ensuring that everyone enjoyed themselves to the full. Our next party or celebration will certainly include Chemistry. Thank you once again.”
Society President, Formal Ball, Bucks
“Decided to write my note on my return home to tell you how much you made the evening for me and all of my guests. The success of an evening is always down to the people who attend but also to the band. I had so many guests came over to me to say how fantastic you were. You provided a really excellent environment and I look forward so much to seeing you again.”
Event organiser, Military Summer Ball, Oxfordshire
“I am writing to not only personally, but also on behalf of The Commanding Officer 202 (Midland) Field Hospital (Volunteers) and The Officers’ Mess, express our enormous thanks to ‘Chemistry’. The band, vocals, sound and visual effects were perfect for our Summer Ball at the Randolph last Saturday night. It was a huge responsibility choosing a band, but the research I did was well worth it and I am so grateful for your help in making the right choice. I would certainly be able to recommend the band to others, although I’m sure you don’t need that other than maybe for customers like myself! Thanks again.”
James & Clare Edwards, Chenies Manor Wedding – July 2013
“Dear Bill & Wendy
Clare and I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for playing so brilliantly at our wedding back in July. Many people say that the evening entertainment can often make or break a wedding and your sets absolutely made it!!
From the word go you were open and honest with us, allowing us to make suggestions and help you build the sets using music that we wanted. The music played was performed exceptionally and enjoyed by all – it appealed to all ages! I will remember Clare and I, our guitaring to Bryan Adams for a very long time!
Thank you all again for helping make our wedding day the perfect day that it was – we are hugely grateful.
All the very best in the future.”
James & Clare Edwards
Verity & Stuart Creedy, Windsor Wedding – October 2014
“When we had booked our wedding date we knew there was only one choice – Bill and Wendy and their band Chemistry. We both had the pleasure of seeing Chemistry play previously and were blown away by the energy, showmanship, and ability to get the crowd JUMPING!
When making arrangements, we were provided with clear information on the different options for band set-up, and were given guidance on these options taking the venue capacity and size of audience into consideration. We went with their full 6-piece line up of drums, bass, keys, three guitars, sax and vocals. The set up during our wedding breakfast was extremely discreet and Bill and Wendy worked with the hotel directly to ensure all arrangements were in hand – there was very little we had to do.
We had a wide range of Chemistry’s repertoire to choose from and Bill gave fantastic guidance on what songs would flow from one to the next. The result was a selection of floor fillers which everyone enjoyed. Bill also provided DJ support between the live sets, with a huge collection of tracks, and was happy to add any that weren’t listed.
When Chemistry kicked off the show, there was an instant feeling of a rock and roll experience. Throughout their sets the band members were bouncing off one another’s energy and remained in sync the entire time. The 4-part harmonies sounded fantastic and this, with their instrumentation, was perfectly balanced in terms of speaker output with their engineer at the helm.
The dance floor was never empty and we were dancing pretty much continuously – so much so, we didn’t even notice the evening buffet being served!
We wanted our day to be one of fun, love and having a great time. Chemistry really were the icing on the cake and were a huge contribution to making our day one we will never forget.”
Kind regards, Verity & Stuart
