On 7th November 2019 Ambassador 14 piece showband were booked to perform at The Hilton on Park Lane in London for the Greek wedding on Lynsey and Yiannis. The bride and groom wanted a super talented and interactive showband that would wow their guests and play a wide range of repertoire including soul, funk, R&B, UK Garage and Ibiza club classics. They instantly fell in love with Ambassador band.

Here is what the lovely couple had to say about our service and the bands performance:

Firstly, we would like to send Geoff, the Like it Live Team the Ambassador Band our absolute love and sincere gratitude. We were completely overwhelmed with your performance at our wedding, every guest was in ore of you all. The feedback was unreal, you kept the dance floor rocking all night. You all looked fantastic too. Geoff, over the past 9 months you have been one of our easiest persons to deal with. You had made everything so easy for us, at such a stressful time. We were able to put all of our confidence and trust into you and the band. We wanted to give you free reign to show off your talents and you all absolutely blew us away. You worked with our DJ and sorted everything out so smoothly. The sound was incredible and for such a big room it all came together so well. I remember all of your smiles, the love and joy you brought to our wedding was priceless and we will never forget that. Thank you all so much, with all our love.
