The feedback from your gig was fantastic – all of our campers and traders enjoyed their evening and went away smiling and happy. Indeed all of the Red Socks, still standing, had a great time too and we are very grateful for your patience on arrival.

Sarah - Holkham Hall Country Fair

Malc, Richard and Darren aka 'Class of 87' I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your brilliant show at my party on Saturday. You packed the dance floor from the first tune to the last, and smashed every track, can't ask for more than that! Everyone has commented about how great the band were. So just to say a huge thanks for giving everyone such a great time!


Many thanks to the fantastic Class of 87 guys for providing a first class evening of both Live & DJ set at my 50th Birthday Bash. You were extremely accomplished (which I knew beforehand as I'd had you 10 years earlier for my 40th as well !!!! ) Great job guys ........Make sure that you leave November 2026 free for my 60th !!!


Morning all. Thank you so much for Saturday, you were excellent. The feedback I've seen on facebook was that people thought you were amazing, good job!! Thanks


Afternoon gents,Thank you all so very much for Saturday. We had a fab time, and you definitely had lots of people up and dancing!! Sorry it didn't run quite to time, but thanks for being flexible and accommodating. Sorry we didn't get to say bye on the night. We shall definitely book you again for our next wedding!! Thanks again.

Graham & Jenny

I just wanted to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding and how fab we thought you were! I'm not sure if it's the done thing for the bride not to leave the dance floor for the entire evening but you kept playing such good songs I literally couldn’t drag myself off the dance floor. So many people who have written or called about the wedding commented on how good the band were. So thank you very much for making the evening go with such a swing. You were perfect - much more than I could have hoped for and the blisters on my feet were testament to that!!!

Ruby and Gav

Dear Malcolm & co, Thank you again for the fantastic job you did at our wedding last Friday. Your repertoire was a little different from other wedding bands and included a lot of our favourite music from the 80s and 90s so we were really pleased that you were available. You had the dance floor filled from start to finish just as we had hoped, and I have never seen Rob dance so much. Nor did I think I’d ever witness my mum dancing to the Stone Roses or Kaiser Chiefs! We have had many positive comments about you from the guests too.

Jude and Rob

Hi, Suffice to say, they were great. A nice bunch of guys who play good music and can certainly entertain a crowd. Many thanks

Lee via SJE

Good morning guys, Thanks so much for last Friday night at Barnham Broom. We had a great time. Your music was brilliant. We can't remember saying goodbye at the end!! Thanks again and hopefully we'll get to see you play again soon.

Matt & Alex

We had a great time and had a lot of compliments about you guys. We will definitely be recommending you.


Hi Guys, thanks again for a great night. A number of guests have already commented on how good you were, and I think a good time was had by all. All the best.


Hi Richard, I didn't get a chance to speak to you last night before you left but wanted to email and thank you and the band for an amazing night's music. Everyone commented how great you were and loved the song choices. I'm not a dancer myself but there were plenty people up there dancing who clearly had a great time. A few people have asked for your details so there may be a couple more bookings on the way! I hope you all had a good evening too.
Thanks again, very much :)


Hannah and I loved your music, will certainly find you on Facebook and spread the word. It was perfect.< In the airport now and buzzing for the Maldives. Thanks again.

Pete and Hannah

Hi Richard, Thank you so much for your amazing performance at our wedding reception. We had so many positive comments from our guests and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. You helped to make a special evening even more magical.

Kathryn and Simon

Hi Richard, Sorry it has taken a while, but we would both like to say a massive Thank You for playing at our wedding at Dragon Hall. You got everyone dancing and it sounded great! Such a professional set up. Many thanks.

Johnny & Emily

It's a pleasure to welcome a versatile & professional outfit - it makes all our roles less stressful! Thank you for working with us, I understand Richard has taken your details to add to our preferred suppliers. We hope to see you back some time soon. Best regards.

Giff Mulley - Estate Manager - Yaxley Hall

Just want to say a massive great big thank you to you guys for making our wedding awesome. You sounded amazing and the dancefloor was packed all night. You did the best covers of some of my all time favourite tunes and in true bride style, I was throwing shapes on the dancefloor and singing (some may say shouting) like I was a teenager. I managed to lose my voice in the process and in my eyes, that's always the sign of a great band! We had so many great comments from our guests and photographer and to boot, you all look retro cool. Thanks again for being stars and we have video footage of some classic 80's moves.....something to show the grandchildren!

Mr & Mrs Rogers

Both myself and Kay thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and may I give you and the band a big thank you for helping to make our wedding evening so memorable. From what I could see everyone got to the dance floor at some point through the evening with mass drunken dance-off at the end. The wedding butler was very complimentary about the band as well. Many thanks to you.

And & Kay

Been meaning to write & say thanks so much for a great gig. The client feedback has been excellent & we wouldn't hesitate to book you again. We look forward to our paths crossing again soon. Thanks again & stay in touch. Best Wishes.

Angela Philips - Darkstar Corporation Ltd

Thank you for a wonderful performance at our wedding. We had lots of positive comments, and enjoyed a fabulous wedding night. It was great to see everyone dancing. Kind Regards.

Laura and Joe

I have had so much positive feedback from everyone about the party, they all loved you guys! Can't thank you enough. It was exactly how I anticipated. It was great to see everyone dancing, I saw friends dancing who never normally enter the dance floor! Sorry about Paul's singing - I think he would secretly like to be in a band!! (lol). I'll be sure to recommend you to anyone looking for a band! Thanks again.


We have received the following feedback from our client. Gradschool were simply outstanding. They ticked all the boxes and more about what they claimed they could do. I will be recommending them to everyone we know. Please thank them again from us and all of our guests. Best regards.

Marinda & Scott Jordan

It was an excellent gig, you really nailed it for us. I did have a fair bit of interest in you from the guests - my mates were there for the 80s (sadly!), and Ela and her mates are tourists who love the whole revival thing. Maybe there will be bookings for you that come from it - I'll definitely nudge a few people. Hopefully see you again some time. Cheers.


Hello Richard, just wanted to say cheers for a great performance on Saturday.The choice of songs was great and the quality of the music was fab. Thanks very much for coming along!


Guys, Thanks for great show on Saturday. Everyone said the music was fab and the dance floor was pretty much full most of the evening. Hopefully we'll all bump into each other again soon. Have a good summer.

Mike & Ali

Hi,Just wanted to say a big thank you for playing at our event on Saturday night. Everyone I've spoken to has commented on how great the band was which I would have to thoroughly agreed with. I've had a few people ask for your details for other events so hope you don't mind & I'll pass them along. Thanks so much


Hi Guys, Nikki & I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for making our evening so special. As I'm sure you realised yourselves, the evening was a great success & the plaudits have been non stop since Saturday extolling your virtues. Many (myself included) have not heard a tribute band as good & we've seen too many to mention! Once again guys, many thanks - it was a pleasure to listen & dance & sing along to so many hits. Kindest regards

Mike & Nikki

Hey there, just to say thank you for Saturday night - you rocked! We had endless comments all night as to how good you are & I think one of our friends will be in touch to book you for their wedding later in the year. Fantastic set - great tunes & thanks for all the encores, sorry about the pressure! I thought you were going to have a new band member by the end of it! Cheers again & long live Grad School!


Class of 87 are consummate professionals. We hardly knew they were there until they began to play but at that point the dance floor was full from the start of their set to the end. We offered them a list of our favourite tracks on their play list and they based their choices very much on what we'd asked for without sticking slavishly to the list which we didn't want. Would recommend them to anyone. The sound balance was perfect, no-one complained about it being too loud, not even the oldies, and the performance was just amazingly polished, even when we requested a song that wasn't on their play list for our first dance. Thank you so much Class of 87, we will definitely have you back if we need a live band in the future, you were fantastic and made our day.


Hi Guys I would just like to thank all three of you for a fantastic evening on Saturday. The music was fantastic. Great sound, brilliant voice, I have not seen my husband dance like that in years, or my mum for that matter! It was great to here some fantastic songs from our era. Thanks also for your friendly manner. We have had some great feedback from friends and family all of whom would love to hire you for their own parties. It was lovely meeting you and we will be in touch for future events Thanks again

Mandy and Dave.

Richard, Just really wanted to say a big thank you for last night. We both really lover you music & had some great feedback from our guests. Jon feels much better today so the G&Ts must have done the trick! Many thanks

Lucy & Jon

Richard Just wanted to say a belated THANK YOU for doing such a great job at our wedding. We really couldn't have asked for anything more from you guys - fantastic performance, great choice of numbers & a brilliant job djing, Mcing etc. You really kept everything hanging together & we cannot thank you enough. We had so much good feedback about you guys - I especially remember "Imagination" being great. You are really very talented. Thanks again and please pass on our thanks to the guys.

James & Ainsley

Richard Just to say thank you so much for Saturday night! I had a fantastic night and the music was superb. Friends and family have told me today how much they enjoyed the band. You helped make my birthday very special and if you ever need a recommendation, I will gladly oblige. Thanks again


Dear Richard Just a quick note to say a HUGE thank you to you and the rest of your band for a superb night on Saturday. The music was fantastic and the full dance floor was testament to that! I've had great feedback from loads of the guests saying how much they enjoyed the music. Many thanks again


Dear Richard, Darren and Malcolm, Andy and I just wanted to say a big thank you for performing at our wedding. We had a great time and you guys did a really great job. Got everyone on the dance floor and made it a real party - just what we wanted! Most of us spent our teens listening to 80's chart music so this took us right back - minus the fingerless gloves and dodgy haircuts!! Thanks again


Class of '87 are a talented and well organised band. They enhanced our wedding reception playing music that all our guests enjoyed and danced to. We have since received many compliments from our guests saying how much they enjoyed the class of '87. They also have a DJ option with a vast array of music tracks. Overall an excellent and entertaining band that we would not hesitate to recommend or book again through the Alive Network.


It all went well and they were very professional, the crowd really enjoyed them. If we do the the event next year we'll have them back.

Royal Ascot Racecourse

We were extremely pleased with class of 87 and I would recommend them to anyone. The music was brilliant and they got everyone dancing all night. They were such a friendly easy going bunch of guys too and just got themselves sorted without any hassle we couldn't have been more pleased, it was a brilliant night. Thanks for everything

Deb Nicol

Hello Richard We have now returned from honeymoon and wanted to take the time to say a big "THANK YOU" for playing at our wedding reception. The music was brilliant and everyone has said how amazing the band were. The band's set will be something we remember for a long time & certainly helped a great day even better. We'll certainly not hesitate to recommend you to all we know. Best wishes

Karen & Tony

Richard , Just a quick note before we jet off on honeymoon to say a big thanks to you and the guys for playing at our wedding. Everyone commented on how good you were and what a great set-list you had. There was something for everyone and your second set was particularly packed with floor fillers. I never understand why couples spend thousands on a wedding and then have a DJ as the evening entertainment. A live band always make the evening and your band certainly made ours. Thanks also for coming all the way across country for us - very much appreciated Thanks and Good Luck Kind Regards

Gavin & Janice Hughes

To Richard & The Boys Thank you for helping make our day special. We appreciated your professionalism & patience with us! Best Wishes

Jemma & Mat

Hi Richard, Thanks for a great night. Your band were brilliant & it was a shame It had to finish when it did! Cheers


Hi Guys, I just wanted to say a big thank you to all 3, for making my 40th such a blinding night. I cant remember much about the end of it but boy did we get some phone calls, all saying how good you were and that it really made the night. If people want any type of recommendation for you please point them in my direction I am looking forward to seeing you again (I hope) at the next event! My thanks again for giving me some brilliant memories (early in the night). Wishing you all the very best for 2009 and beyond. Kind Regards


Dear Richard & the band We wanted to say a big THANK YOU for doing a blinding job at our wedding at the Garden Barn. It was an excellent set and loads of guests commented on how great you were. We were so pleased you were able to do our wedding & for us it was the icing on the cake for what was an amazing day. So thanks again & we wish you every success in the future. Best wishes

Katie & Olly

Richard Just a quick note to say thank you for playing at our wedding. So many people commented on how good you were! Thanks again

Kerri & Matt

Hi Richard I'm sorry it's taken me so long to write to thank you for making Ruth and Ben's wedding go with such a bang. I'm sure you could tell how much everyone enjoyed your music by the number of people on the dance floor all evening, including Andrew's 90 year old cousin! I don't know whether this is a compliment or not but my niece said that she thought there was a CD on until she turned round and realised the three of you were playing. Anyway, we all had a fantastic evening so thank you once again for helping to make Ruth and Ben's wedding such a special day for everyone. Best Regards


Seth, Had intended to drop you a line. The band were excellent. Nice guys, turned up on time. They brought a very impressive array of equipment and were very professional. All the guests asked who they were and where I had found them and the overwhelming opinion expressed since the party is that the band were 'brilliant although my version of Rio may not have been the highlight of the night! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and they are certainly a great advert for Alive Network.


Hello Richard I'd just thought I would drop you a line to say a big thank you for the entertainment on Sunday which was very well received by all. Everyone commented on how good you were and how professional the whole set up was. I'd also like to thank the singer for loaning his laptop at the last minute so the slideshow could happen. Once again thanks very much for providing the music that certainly took a lot of people back to their youth! All the best


The band were brilliant, never seen so many people dancing and for so long. Anybody who can get some of my mates dancing is doing something right. They were forced to do 2 encores by everyone cheering and everyone has asked where we got them from as they really enjoyed it. They arrived and set up fine, and all in all made the day even more special. So please pass on our thanks. Cheers

Stuart - RSA

Dear Richard, Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you very much indeed for Saturday night. It was amazing. Everyone thought you were great and had tons of compliments, a perfect band for a 40th party! Thank you again - hope you got home OK.

Richard and Lucy Naish

I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge, enormous THANK YOU! The music Stage at the Imperial Centenary Party well and truly rocked our client's world. The audience were entertained from the moment the event started until the final screaming finale. Every element worked and ‘class of 87’ were awesome. I hope that we get the opportunity to work with you again in the future and please ensure your artist receives our heart felt thanks. Thanks again and best wishes

Gemma - Imperial College - London

Hi, yes we were absolutely thrilled with the band, the play list was excellent, as was the quality of the music and the sound. I would recommend Class of 87 to anyone, we danced all evening and had great fun. Thanks for your help in setting up the booking

Rowena Jopling

Sorry it has taken a while to get back to you - life has been rather hectic, as you can imagine. We have now managed to do most of the thank you's etc, but have saved some of the special ones till last! I can't tell you how much we appreciated the contribution made by Class of 87 to our day. Every detail was just how we hoped it would be. And as for their sets, they were exactly what we were hoping for. The choice of music got everyone up and enjoying themselves. The guys interacted well with the guests and really entertained brilliantly, with fantastic performances which everyone really appreciated. The whole day was brilliant and unforgettable, and as the last act of a very full day, they rose to the challenge and gave us a night to remember! If you can let us have an address to send a card to the guys, we'd love to express our appreciation to them direct.

Alive Agency Clients

Hi Richard, Sorry it's been so long in contacting you. We both wanted to thank you for the performance at our wedding - we really loved it Whenever we talk to any of our guests they all comment on how superb you were. It really helped in making our day so special. Hope to see you again at the Landmarc. Once again, thanks

Gary & Sarah

Dear Richard Thank you so much for providing such brilliant entertainment on our wedding day . We were so impressed with the music and our guests have raved about you ever since. We have provided your details to all those who have asked so hope you get some calls soon! You may be pleased to hear that my 86 year old grandma never left the dance floor during your second set - I will have memories forever of her dancing to Frankie Goes To Hollywood's Relax! Many thanks again and best wishes for the future,

Georgina & Ben

Dear Richard, Thank you all for a fantastic party last night. I have never been somewhere with a live band where so many people danced for so long. Normally there is always a lull where people decide they don't like the song & have a rest - not with you guys. So many people complimented me on you, I hope you get more bookings from the night. Hope you have a good gig tonight &, once again, thank you for making everyone think I'm a fantastic organiser when it was all down to you guys and the music. Regards


Richard, Just wanted to say thank you for Saturday.. Everyone we have spoken to about the event has commented on what a fantastic band you are. We are thinking of doing the same next year so may get in touch again. Once again thanks

Mark Farley - Exeter City Council

Hi Just a quick email to say thank you so much for Saturday night, you guys were brilliant. Everyone had a great time as you could probably tell from the many shouts for "one more" or in some cases "three more"! Thanks for making our night such a memorable one. We will certainly recommend you in the future. Kind regards

Lance and Emily

Lads Just a note to say thanks for everything! Everybody thought you were brilliant, to cover an age group of 18- 50 plus takes some doing, especially after traveling from Norfolk all the way down to Somerset! Everybody has commented to me how good you sounded and also what nice blokes you were too. It was a special occasion in our squadrons history and your fantastic performance made it even more memorable. To steal a song from the night you guys made it a "Fantastic Day"!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much and don't be surprised when we call again!

AEM John "Snowy" Winter - 801 Naval Fighter Squadron

Hello!!! I just wanted to say a great big huge thank you for Saturday nights gig - you guys were fantastic !!! So many people asked for your details & I hope that they book you!!! Thanks for making the party! You were stars!! Hopefully see you for The Party in the Garden!! With kind regards and heart felt thanks to you all!


Just wanted to pass on my thanks to you and the band for playing at our wedding. You were absolutely fantastic and turned it into a brilliant evening for us all. The music was spot on so thank you! All the best

Lucie and Mike

We were delighted with the band. They were perfect for the evening and good company earlier in the day. Comments from our guests were entirely positive (which makes us look good!). They couldn't believe that we could find such a band without knowing them first. Some of the songs sounded better than the originals!! The dance-floor was packed which is always a great testament to a band (and to the quantity of alcohol). Thanks for your assistance. Regards,


Richard I'm back from honeymoon. Just a quick e-mail to say thanks. There were many comments on how good you guys were and everyone really enjoyed the music. PS Thanks for guiding me through my impromptu performance of Gold!


Richard You & the band were all really, really fantastic - in the words of Simon Cowell (or was it Nicky Chapman?) - you blew me away! The band was fab & loads of people have since told us how great they thought you all were. Thanks again


Hi Guys Just wanted to say a big thanks for a fantastic evening on Saturday night. You really made my party, everyone really enjoyed your music. A truly memorable 40th!

Steve Butler

Dear class of 87 Just wanted to put down in words how grateful we were for your input on the day. Everyone continues to talk about the music and how well you set up and left without any problems. Thank you once again Regards

Chris & David

To all of class of '87 Thank you for making everyone's night! Can you buy the band a drink on us!
