from some of the weddings, venues & events, we have had the privilege to play
Dinner Dance March 19th 2016, Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa, Leeds.
The Institute of Materials Finishing & The Surface Engineering Association jointly ran the event this year and to mark it we decided to hire a more versatile band, we found OKTC and to say we were blown away is an understatement. These 4 guys played music I thought you would only hear in a studio (Simple Minds- Don’t Forget about me) being just one.The place was rocking from start to finish, didn’t want it to end. We will (after requests from all who attended ) book them again next year.

Georgina Timothy - Christmas party -Cheshire - November 2012...
they were fantastic and got so many great comments - people want me to book them again next year!
Tim Fitton - wedding reception - Pocklington, York - July 2011
The band were very friendly. The guests loved them and had the dance floor full all night. We were worried about hiring a band from just sample CDs but they were fantastic! We would use them again. Thanks guys!
Davyd Fisher - wedding reception - Lancashire - July 2010
We would definitely recommend Function Junction and OKTC to our friends. Very good at getting all guests on the dancefloor - set list appealed to all ages. Really made our night - thank you!
Becky Bye - party - Derbyshire - June 2010
I would definitely recommend using Function Junction and OKTC. They were friendly, professional and played brilliantly. Everyone enjoyed the performance and I could relax as they obviously had lots of experience and could react to the audience.
Becky Manson - birthday party - West Yorkshire - April 2010
The band were excellent - fantastic range of songs and extremely professional. I would have no doubt in recommending them. Thank you!
Chris Kamara Sky Sports - London - Summer 2012
If you want your party to be a memorable one, these are the boys! I've worked with these guys at Sky Sports parties, in front of celebrities and sports people and its a guaranteed way to have an unbelievable night. Great tunes, great guys!
Rik & Hannah - Ilkley, North Yorkshire - May 2014
Oktc played at our wedding reception and were absolutely fantastic. They managed to get everybody on the dance floor, even those who 'don't dance' at weddings and the dance floor was full all night with people shouting for more at the end.
They very kindly learned a song we requested them to do as our first dance and played it perfectly.
We had OKTC recommended to us by a guest at someone else's wedding and they didn't disappoint.
A brilliant band, highly recommended!
Thanks so much for making our wedding such fun!

We were given the following advice from a recently married couple when organising our daughters wedding. They said "concentrate on the music - that’s what people will remember". OKTC certainly did us proud on that front. I cannot remember a wedding when the dance floor was full for the entire night. Both young and more senior enjoyed and danced to the music. The band played during the reception drinks and canapés which got everyone into the party mode and then for three hours after the meal. They were 100% reliable, turned up when they said they would, arranged the PA system for the speeches and were easy to have in our home. The music was loud enough for our neighbours half a mile away to be aware of the music but the older generation could still have a conversation at the back of the marquee. Superb and thanks very much.

Thank you so so so so much for your fantastic performance at our wedding last Saturday. It totally "made" our evening do. Everyone loved it - as you could see from the full dance floor!
We will make sure to recommend you wherever we can.

Dear Spencer and the band,
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for keeping our dancefloor so full! You guys were totally amazing and we have had SO many people say how brilliant the music was and a couple even ask for your details for their upcoming weddings!
We had so much fun and are sad that it is all over now! If you would like us to give a testimonial on your site or anywhere, we would be more than happy to do so.

Hope you are well. Just a quick email to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding. We had such a great day and everyone had a great night dancing away!
Do let me know if you have any gigs around Wakefield/Dewsbury/Leeds as I know a few of my friends would be eager to carry on the party.

We,ve just returned back from Kenya and I wanted to send a note to say how grateful we are for you guys playing at our wedding. I'm sure everyone you play for tells you how great you guys are, so I don't want to sound like a broken record (excuse the pun) but you play with a passion and energy that's infectious and that's the brilliance. Thank you for making our evening so, so memorable and enjoyable. Please do extend our thanks to the rest of the band as well.
We were particularly grateful for you taking the time to learn Ho Hey by The Lumineers. That was great!
All the best, Spencer.

"While on holiday at Bunn Leisure this week i had the pleasure of seeing these guys for the first time. In my opnion, while the other shows were great these guys put on what was for me, the show of the week. Skilled, highly entertaining with a great selection of tunes. Loved it......"

"We got married on the 1st April 2016 and it was far from an April fools! Haha!
We knew of the band through the drummer Steve and we didn’t hesitate to ask if they would preform at our evening do. What a fantastic decision that was! They arranged and learnt two specific songs that we requested for our first and second dances and this made them all the more special. They kept the buzz of our wedding going all night, the dance floor was always full! Steve and the rest of the guys were so friendly nothing was too much trouble. Even when, at the end of the night one of our guests decided he could play the drums Steve allowed him to have a go and this made our guests night. (It’s those little touches that make memories for people). Well it’s been a couple of months now and when we bump into people who were at the wedding the OKTC band is never far from their lips! So what’s left to say but a huge THANK YOU for adding to our very special day. It’s one we’ll always remember. "

Thank you for the wonderful entertainment you provided at our daughter's
You are by far the best live band we have come across and are so
thankful to Jim Dabbs (marquee hire) for putting us on to you. We
just didn't want you to stop playing and could have literally rocked the
whole night away. You really know how to keep a party going! People
kept coming up to me asking 'how did you manage to find them?'
Thank you once again for making the evening so perfect.
All the very best,
Nigel and Beata

I just wanted to drop you all an email to say that you were absolutely brilliant playing at our wedding a couple of weeks ago!
The songs that you chose were amazing and I knew and loved each and everyone of them. I was up all night dancing with my friends which was just perfect to totally kick back and go crazy at the end of the day.
You even had my 92 year old Grandma up dancing for much of the night and my Uncle said that being up dancing and listening to a rock band made him feel like he was 19 again! A lot of the guests have said to me you were fab and as you probably noticed the dance floor was never empty when you guys were on. The props were a nice suprise too!
Our first dance song was perfect too and it was very special and personal to us, so thank you for that. Also thank you for Viva La Vida.

In July I was on a family vacation in Eilat. I spent my nights (all three of them) at the Three Monkeys Pub enjoying the performance of The OKTC band.
The shows were incredible and everyone in my family are still raving about it. The music was great and the band kept the crowd up dancing. Not only was the music awesome, but the members of the band themselves, with their fabulous personality - made the atmosphere at the evenings so fantastic ( thank you Spencer, Steve, Paul and Mark )
I really hope you will call them back next year ( or sooner!! ) I would very much like to book my next vacation, according to the dates OKTC are next playing at the Three Monkeys Pub.
Thanks in advance,
