Guaranteed to have a blast!
Hunks & Punks made our wedding reception so special. Having a live band creates such a fun environment and we really just wanted our guests to have the best time. They have a big playlist so we picked the songs that we liked, and they even learned a few new ones for us that we wanted. As the groom, I even got up on stage and sang a song with them to my new bride which was really special - I'm no singer, but they made me sound great! They played late into the evening and never stopped jamming. They played our first dance song live which was incredibly beautiful to dance to. I would highly recommend them!Sent on 29/03/2019

Hunks and Punks are the perfect wedding band!
One of most difficult and most researched decisions for our wedding was finding a band that had a great energy on stage, an impressive and varied song list, professionalism and of course met our budget! Hunks and Punks completely exceeded every single expectation and I would recommend them over and over again! The dance floor was packed full all night with guests of all ages!Sent on 25/03/2019

Many of our guests said our wedding was the best they've ever been to and we're certain our band played a huge role in that!
Tim of Hunks and Punks was fantastic to work with and extremely patient. He answered all of our questions and went above and beyond on our "day of", by introducing the wedding party and helping to coordinate our own recorded playlist between sets.
Thank you so much Tim and Hunks and Punks. We could not imagine our wedding reception without you!!

The best wedding decision you'll make!
Hiring Hunks and Punks was the best and most defining decision we made in our wedding planning process. They are incredibly talented, the range in their song offering is remarkable, and their energy is infectious. From 7:30pm to 1:00am they were the heartbeat of our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, including specially requested songs for the father-daughter walk down the aisle and our first dance. They continually went above and beyond from our first meeting through setup and takedown. Hunks and Punks played an immense role in making our event what many of our 200 guests have called “the best wedding” they've ever attended. You won't regret hiring Hunks and Punks for your wedding!Sent on 07/03/2020
