    The band played at our wedding reception on 30 December 2017, and we honestly couldn't have hoped for a better! We had seen them play twice before at friend's weddings and knew then that we had to ask them to play for us. They sounded incredible on the night and their song selection was fantastic. Our guests (and ourselves) didn't leave the dancefloor all night! We would recommend them in a heartbeat. Thank you for an incredible evening! Becky and Jimmy

    Thank you so much to Rich and the band for an amazing night It was a tall order for them to please us at 70 years old through to our very cool grandchildren. I didn't need to worry, they were perfect. They managed to seamlessly change genres of music, using their years of experience. Thanks again. Golden Weddings don't come around that often!!!!

    Helter Skelter are awesome and created an electric atmosphere for our wedding party. They are absolute professionals and fantastic musicians. The first dance that you learned for us was unbelievable and you sounded like you'd been playing it together for years. The band looked like they were enjoying the night as much as our guests and everyone was dancing all the way through the sets. We really can't thank you enough guys as it would have been a totally different night if you hadn't been playing for us. We will definitely be seeing you again.

    Absolutely amazing band. We have seen these guys many times at Silverstone and from the first time we herd them play we knew who we wanted to play our wedding. From start to finish these are on top of their game and just so passionate about what they do. I cannot recommend them enough we have had no end of people say it's been the best wedding band they have seen.... Say no more.

    Massive thank you to Helter Skelter for making the evening of our wedding one we will never forget. The band were a last minute booking as a band we had already confirmed pulled out, we couldn't be more happier about that now! We never had the chance to meet the band before hand, we met them when they arrived and after they had already set-up. Quick chat about what music we liked and off they went. The dance floor was never empty all night! Music was amazing, great sound, always getting the crowd involved, doing dedications to certain people that we had asked for and just lots and lots of fun. I would definitely use Helter Skelter again for a party myself, and recommend them to friends. Thank you again for amazing memories!! X

Just wanted to give a BIG SHOUT OUT to the AMAZING Helter Skelter who played at our Wedding on 29/04/17. They really know how to get a party started and everyone was dancing in to the small hours.......our guests still talk about you now!

Thank you for adding that special touch to what was the best and most memorable day of our lives.

Love Mr and Mrs Holdsworth.

Thank you Helter Skelter for performing for us at my breast cancer charity ball on our 10th annual anniversary!

You were fantastic once again. Everyone enjoyed the night.

 


 

Hayley and James Bates

Wedding - September 2016

We'd always watched these guys at Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival and have several friends that know the band, so was an obvious band choice for our Wedding instead of a usual DJ reception. Rich was super patient and spent a lot of time liaising with us to get the genre of music and requests in that we wanted, itinerary etc.

The day was an absolute success and everyone had a great time and said how much they enjoyed the music and the night; it was a great atmosphere.

Thanks for everything and for signing our Jenga board too; nice touch :-)

Many thanks and hopefully catch you locally again soon!

see you soon

Vicky Warren

PTA Fundraiser - April 2016

we would hire you guy's again in a heartbeat, in fact you came as from a recommendation of a parent who had heard you play at another event.
Professional contact from start to finish which reduced any concerns about you turning up on the night! And the dance floor was full from the start of the set s until the last song.
Great mix of hits and songs that kept everybody entertained with different music tastes. The night went far too quickly which is always a sign of a great night and indeed I think the party goers could have gone on for a fair few more songs given the response of the final song!
Thanks again for a great night.

KJ Booker

Wedding - May 2015
 

 

JUST WOW! Helter Skelter totes rocks! 

A HUGE thank you to Helter Skelter for making our wedding evening reception one of the best party nights ever held. Four weeks later and our guests are still raving about the great night they had with the band. Awesome selection of music, played with such passion - truly entertaining and fantastic fun. 
Our wedding, which was held at Bagden Hall May 2015, had it's socks rocked off and everyone - and we do mean everyone - got up and got down and boogied! No other way to describe their performance - the guys were simply brilliant! 
Half the guests were Aussies who'd flown over for the wedding and they all wanted to take the band back home with them - Helter Skelter are too good for West Yorkshire and need to go Down Under to show them how it's done! 

Seriously though, Helter Skelter was the best band for us and we cannot recommend them highly enough to anyone who wants a brilliant night of entertainment. Thank you again to Rich and the guys for capping off our special day with a faultless and fun night of genuinely sensational live music - a perfect way to end a perfect day! 

We love you Helter Skelter!

 



Matt and Caroline  Tattersley

Wedding  - April 2015

Thanks Helter Skelter for a truly fantastic performance! Caroline and I were absolutely blown away with your performance and the service you provided us. You guy's couldn't have been more accommodating for us and all the guests we spoke to agreed that you really made our Wedding Day.
Absolutely brilliant, well done guys!!!


 


 


Aldo Rodi - MD Snap-on Tools UK

Corporate Booking -Snap On Tools  - January 2015

I just wanted to drip you a note to commend you on your performances at our recent 50th Anniversary celebrations. When Phil suggested that we use you, I have to say I was a little unsure if it was the right decision. However he was adamant that you guys were good and boy was he right!
Not only were you thoroughly professional and extremely helpful, but your performances were outstanding. You are great musicians, great fun with an excellent repertoire and you play for your audiences and not your own egos.
How our people enjoyed you, everyone I spoke to was nothing but complimentary towards you (of course at this stage I took credit for booking you!!!)

I'd have no hesitation in recommending you to others and indeed I don't know why you aren't heading up the bill at somewhere like the O2 Arena  with U2 as your support band!!

Great band, great guys - best wishes for the future. Aldo


 

 


 


Paul and Rose Thorpe

We've had nothing but fantastic comments about them as everyone loved them as much as we did. Thanks again for everything.

Wedding 21 September 2013

Just writing to say a huge thanks to Helter Skelter for performing at our wedding. We loved every minute and our guests all commented on how fantastic you guys were.

You knew what to play to get everyone up and turned a lively evening into a riotous one - it was amazing.....loved it!

We really can't thank you enough for making our reception as incredible as it was and can';t find the words to big you up as much as you deserve! We're already trying to think of another reason to have a big party for you to play at :-)

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Best Wishes
Tracy and Ste

Vince O'Neil

Camping & Caravan Yorkshire Region Meet  - June 2013
I bet Carlsberg really really wish they did bands, because they would certainly be happy with Helter Skelter. Fantastic set of guys and some of the best musicians on the circuit, with an excellent range of material and more stage presence than most top professional artists. Craig, their lead singer has a terrific range and recreated every song with real style and energy, whilst all the guys on instruments left you wanting more with their energetic, punchy style. Would definitely recommend anyone in need of a top act for any function, no matter how big, to get them booked as soon as possible; I will definitely be booking them again in the future and will be looking out for their local gigs too. Thanks again guys for making our event a terrific success.

Birthday Bash May 2013
Brilliant night at Andrew's Birthday party - Helter Skelter were amasing!

 



Brian Morrison

Wedding - March 2013

We saw Helter Skelter play for our friend's wedding a while back and couldn't believe how good they were so we booked them that night for our own bash. We could only dare to hope that they would be as good as they were when we first saw them but they totally blew us and our guests away! If anything, Helter Skelter were even better on the night for us!

Rich was very friendly and efficient to deal with and was always available as the big day approached. I asked Rich if the band could play certain songs from their repertoire and they didn't let us down. I can't recall ever being at a wedding when the dance floor was packed for the band from start to finish as it was at ours. We've had so many compliments from our guests saying how good the music was on the night.

I would heartily recommend Helter Skelter if you want your Big Day to go with a really loud bang!

Helter Skelter most certainly do rock!

Brian & Catherine

 



Brendan Loughnane

Hannahs 21st Party - March 2013


The band were excellent !
They kept the whole evening going with their g
reat live show and well selected DJ tunes.
The pre - bash contact from Rich was welcome and friendly .... and they did everything they promised they would. I would highly recommend them to others and would book again for our own future events

Engagement Party - Feb 2013


Thanks so much for playing at our engagement party. Had the party rocking and created a fantastic atmosphere. Played songs we all knew and could sing and dance along to. Worth every penny! We will now be booking Helter Skelter to perform at our wedding. Fantastic!!!
Regards. Alex and Emma.

Birthday Bash – December 2012

Awesome gig at Rastrick Bowling Club last night (8th December 2012)& to say i was celebrating my 50th birthday with around 120 guests-everyone could only give really good comments of how great the band was! I was totally made to feel very special as i had a great legendary tune 'dedicated to me’! Slight word change (sorry Lennon&Mcartney ,but actually I now prefer Hey Sue, to Hey Jude,lol!& its always been one of my all-time favourite tunes-they must be mind readers too. A band of great talent, honoured to have had them play at my party. All the best, Sue xx

 

 


 


Melissa & Matt

Wedding - June 2012

Thank you very much for helping to make our wedding day so fantastic... you rocked!!! The dance floor was pretty much full all evening and everyone had a great time, so thank you for putting on a great show and especially for learning our first dance, it was better than the U2 version without a doubt!

Hopefully we'll see you at a wedding again soon! Thanks again, Melissa & Matt.

PS Thanks also to the fantastic DJ!!


 

 


 

 


Martin & Jane

Wedding - June 2012

Just a quick message to say a massive thanks to you and the band on giving us all a wedding to remember and it was a pleasure to have you play our night.

Everyone commented not just on how wicked you were on the night but how friendly you were as people. Your professional manner was quite apparent from the first time we spoke, and it is a breath of fresh air to see that you guys enjoy and have a passion for what you do.

Could you also thank Kirsti for the both of us. Like you guys she was equally professional, her placid and calm manner in my opinion is exactly what a photographer should be, and looking forward to seeing the photos.

We will continue to follow you guys, as commented on the night your performances are infectious and I think you have gained another 130 fans!

Cheers, Martin & Jane


 

 

 


 

 


Graham and Rebekah Cox

Wedding - May 2012

Helter Skelter truly rock! We took a chance on booking them for our wedding as we'd not heard them live before but if ever a punt paid off, this one did! We would recommend Helter Skelter to anyone! We had a fantastic night. Our guests (ages ranging from 8 to 80) started partying at the first song and didn't want to stop at the end of the night. Numerous guests said they were the best wedding band they'd ever heard. We are currently trying to think of another opportunity to book Helter Skelter! If you are having a wedding in the North then the best tip we can give you is BOOK THIS BAND. Brilliant!

Graham and Rebekah


 

 

 


 


Diane and Ian Hopkinson

25th Wedding Anniversary - May 2012

Great performers as well as good musicians. You caught the atmosphere right and played to it brilliantly. We loved the choice of music, the performance and the mood created - everyone commented positively.

You were open and friendly to deal with before and during the sets which is always a bonus. We are seriously thinking of booking you for a random party in the south, where we live. If you think about it there are loads of bands down here so that says it all!

 

 


 


Matt Quinn 

Wedding - June 2011

You guy's absolutely rocked at Mark and Jenny's wedding at Gorton Monastery on Monday night.... you blew us away with your performance, truly amazing. What a way to celebrate such a fantastic day and what a stunning stage for you guy's to play on cheers!!! Need to see you again!

 

 


 


John Rayner

Organising Commitee - HC2010

Having watched and listened to Helter Skelter in a number of local West Yorkshire based venues I was convinced that they had the confidence and the musical ability to entertain a crowd of 500 at the International Conference Centre in Birmingham. On Tuesday 27th April, 2010, they did just that and created a night that many of us will remember for a long time to come.

 

 


 


Mandy Griffin

Chief Operating Officer, THIS

Helter Skelter are a vibrant energetic band who rose to the occasion in every way, they provided a real focus to the evening's entertainment at the ICC. We will definitely be inviting them to play in front of an NHS audience.

 

 


 


Julia Coletta

HC2010 Conference Delegate

A great band, fantastic repertoire - they really got the audience going.


 

 


 


Chris and Louise Gale

Wedding - October 2009

What can we say? They were amazing, every one of our 114 guests have said so, so it must be true! I cannot recommend this band enough; they truly delivered an amazing show that had everyone crying for more. A truly talented set of professionals who know how to read a crowd and really get people involved. It felt like our own personal concert with all our favourite artists, the only problem you will have is deciding what to pick, so trust me leave it up to Graeme and the team, you won't be sorry!

Chris and Louise Gale.


 

 


 


Maggie Smith

Joint birthday party - October 2009

I have good credentials to judge live bands being one of the organisers for Saltaire Festival (now 7 years) and part of the team that selects between 14 and 20 bands for our Piazza Stage events each year. Helter Skelter are simply far and away the best band we have heard in years. Their passion for a terrific sound, their musicality and great, great numbers deserves a wider audience. They lit up our event and had everyone dancing and made our night very special!


 

 


 


Viv and Phill

Wedding - September 2009

We booked Helter Skelter 3 days before our wedding and to be honest we were not totally sure what to expect, although from the photos on the website and listening to a few soundtracks we knew they would be good, but actually they were out of this world.

Professionalism shone through and their proactivity in contacting the hotel before my big day to go through last minute details to save me time was great. We had an absolutely brilliant evening reception. Everyone was having a great time, my new husband has actually injured his knee in some way with all his dancing (I have pictures to prove it!) He's hobbling now!!!

The words I would use to describe Helter Skelter - phenomenal, brilliant, awesome, exceeded expectations - fantastic band, caters for customer's needs, great set of guys. Not forgetting the crew who helped in all areas. Thanks again.

Thank you so much for all your efforts on our wedding night. We got back on Friday and spent the weekend catching up with people and everybody has commented how amazing you guys were.

Thanks also for emailing pics of the crazy dancing that was taking place and particularly my favourite bit where I sang with you the chorus of Mustang Sally - brilliant!

Jil Gada

50th Birthday Party - April 2009

You and the guys were just fantastic on Saturday. Thanks so much for not only raising my street cred in the locality to dizzying heights but also ensuring that my 50th was as far removed from an old farts party as you can possibly get, which is exactly what I wanted to achieve.

As a budding guitarist my son was absolutely memorised by the music, I have never seen my husband air-guitaring whilst hopping on one leg before and had no idea that my sister has backing singer potential!! There were quite a few pictures taken, when I get them back I will email you the decent ones of the band in action.

You deserve lots of success and have certainly got a new fan base in Manchester now - everyone without exception thought you were just brilliant! I'll keep an eye on the gig list on your website and we'll come and see you if you ever play over this way. Thanks again for making my birthday special.
