'With so much to plan and organise for a wedding it was a pleasure to work with Obsession. On the day itself, they arrived and set themselves up so quickly and quietly that we hardly even noticed until the music sounded. Even though our choice of song for the first dance was not in their repertoire, they still accommodated our wishes. Lively from the start, their selection and timing of songs went down famously and all the way to the end they maintained an incredibly high professional standard, engaging with our guests throughout their performance and where and when required tutored/guided the guests (mainly Irish not knowing the steps) through the dance routine required (Gay Gordons for example). Their decision to use 'Auld Lang Syne' for the last song was superb, if not unexpected, as it brought all guests together linking arms in a circle which, looking back on the day/night is one of the lasting enduring highlight moments of the wedding. A big thank you again to all band members from two very happy newly weds.'
Lai Lee and Eugene O'Callaghan, Oct '09

'The band were fantastic, the music really made the evening come alive. Even my 90 year old uncle was up and moving to the beat. We've already had a lot of compliments from our guests on how good the band were. So please pass on my praise to the band.'
Kathryn and Alistair, Stirlingshire
