You and the band were amazing and everyone loved every minute of your show !!
Thanks so much for you professionalism and patience. You and your mates are a joy to have around.
The vibes and sound you created resonated with the guest. They were all really impressed and heard many people say the band was the "highlight of the evening"!
Thanks for adding such memorable moments to the happiest day of our lives.

A truly memorable performance - these guys are the real deal!
I hired The Start for my wedding on July 6th 2013. As a huge fan of Brit Rock, I had a good feeling about the band; however, nothing could have prepared me for the performance they put on that night - it was AMAZING! I'm a musician myself, and in all my years I have never come across such a professional, stylish and talented ensemble...not to mention polite, friendly and helpful. Front man, Graeme Weeks, is a top-notch singer whose long hair and british accent make him as rock 'n roll as you can get. His band features a deadly rhythm section and superb guitarist and keyboardist. Together this group bangs out incredible versions of some of the best british rock songs in the history of the genre. They provided our wedding with three flawless sets of never-boring tunes that flowed seamlessly together to create a truly memorable performance - these guys are the real deal! Whatever event you are planning, rest assured The Start will rock it!

The Start: Leather ties and Lust for Life

The Start got my attention
“The Start's catchy playlist had me and a full crew of friends dancing and laughing in the aisles, surpassing my usual expectations for an Ottawa pub night by far.”
