  1. Should I stay or should I go.......

    I will be staying a fan for sure – fantastic performance at Mick and Tina’s wedding near Market Harborough on 04/09/21. Saw the band at Piston and props Sywell where there was no room on the dance floor! Roberts mastery of the fret board has to be seen, David’s strong drumming and Ian’s energy on bass . All in all the best live band I have ever seen. Please pass my thanks onto the Band.

  2. Phenomonal

    Thanks so much for playing at Olivia and Dan’s wedding on Sunday. The Houndogs really added to the celebrations. Your fabulous brand of entertainment certainly got the room rocking and I had lots of compliments from guests saying that you were the best wedding band they had seen. Olivia absolutely loved you and hasn’t shut up about it!

    Thanks again and keep doing what you are doing. It’s phenomonal!! You put smiles on a lot of people’s faces.

  3. Best band ever

    Thank you so much for being the best band ever! You absolutely made our wedding. We have had so many compliments on our choice of band. You were brilliant! You had everyone up dancing all night which is exactly what we wanted!

    Thanks so much!

  4. Guys are a great bunch

    I would really like to say a massive thankyou to The Houndogs for the spectacular night. This is the fourth year running they have played at our fundraising events helping us raise over £10,000. The guys are a great bunch and I would highly recommend them and will definitely be having them again in the years to come. They make our job easy once people are through the door by being themselves and playing great music! It is a sell out every year and this is down to their great talents!

  5. Feedback has been brilliant

    On behalf of Holbeach Bank Fc, please can you kindly pass a big thank you to the band for their fantastic performance Saturday night at the Howling Halloween Ball, in Spalding.

    The feedback has been brilliant, with everyone enjoying the music and entertainment the guys provided during the evening.

    Thankyou again

  6. Blew us away

    Thank you once again for a phenomenal performance at Simon’s party on Saturday. I knew it would be good, but you totally blew us away. All our guests were amazed by you and you were the highlight of the night (sorry Simon!).

    You made the party for Simon and he didn’t want it to end! I am sure we will be seeing you again soon. I think it’s fair to say he made it clear to you he was a fan.

    Thanks so much again,

  7. Crowd went wild

    Huge thanks for all you did regarding the Houndogs for James and Sophie’s wedding. They were absolutely brilliant and the crowd went wild from the outset! I had the pleasure of having supper with them and they are great guys!

    Thank you also for your understanding and flexibility regarding the date change.

    Hope to work again with you sometime!
