Dear Dave and your Wonderful Band,Hannah
We were absolutely delighted with your amazing musical talent and awesome contribution to our wedding day. The dance floor seemed packed the whole night.
We were particularly moved and delighted with the spontaneous and incredible end to the evening - the musical serenade to the car, through the garden and the lanterns.It was just magical and perfect, as we hadn't planned it!
Thanks so much to you all for your amazing energy and talent -  a brilliant send off and a phenomenal start to our marriage.     
Hannah & Andrew
Both we and our guests were truly impressed by the talent and versatility of the band, from the jazz to the party atmosphere created by the dance band in the evening.
There were reports of sore feet the next day, after our friends and family spent most of the night on the dance floor.

Chris & Andrea
Wow! Wow! Wow!
Our reception was just how we planned it - pure party, smiles and laughter.
The Dave Challis Band were the perfect eclectic mix of music, creating a wonderful atmosphere...     
Lisa & Ian (Bramhope)
You were so modest to leave as the applause was still sounding that you did not hear how prolonged it was. You really don’t realise how much enjoyment you gave to us all.
Paul & Rhoda (Wakefield)

Everyone was full of praise for the band, and you don’t need me to tell you how much our young and old family and friends enjoyed themselves.

If I had another daughter
I'd do it all again
next year.

Battle of the Tables.

Your music was just perfect from the minute we
entered the marquee to the minute the happy
couple drove away. In fact, it was the best finish to a wedding I've ever experienced.
The band certainly kept the dance floor full!

both daughters' weddings,...)

If I had another daughter
I'd do it all again next
 year. But I've run out!

Dear Dave and the Band,
It's not often you see a band fill a dance floor from the word go - and all through the night. A lot of people were asking about you.
We've passed on your details and invited them to come along with us to lunch at the Wheatley Arms.
