  • "“We had Controversial All Stars as our wedding band in June and we were thrilled with them. They kept the dancefloor filled all night, exactly what we were hoping for from the band! We felt they read the crowd really well. They also learnt a new version of a song for our first dance in a short period of time. "

  • "The Controversial Allstars provided the music for our entire wedding day back in July and we were delighted with them. From the stunning voice of Ingrid Madsen during the ceremony to the amazing cover of Tangled up in you that they did for the first dance. I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for a band for their wedding. "
