'Bodgers Mate were brilliant at our wedding, they had everyone up and dancing, people from all backgrounds and ages were joining in. I would recommend them in a shot and already have them in mind for my next party. 

They even played the hokey cokey for us and are fantastic musicians! I have lots of photos of the madness and it was a great way to get people relaxed and the guests mixing. Those who came from Scotland love it too.'Thank again guys - we really enjoyed it and it was really important to us! 

Hope you all had fun! 





Dear all in Bodger's Mate!! Durham Castle, August 12th 2012

We just wanted to write and tell you all how much we enjoyed the music you provided for Sophia and Chris's wedding last Sunday.  You are amazing musicians and so incredibly versatile!   We loved all the music you played and we especially enjoyed joining in all the dances... even when we thought we couldn't dance!!!   Thank you so much for putting your heart and souls into giving us such a fantastically memorable day and evening and such amazing memories we will certainly never forget!

Please come and play for us again some time.

With much love and best wishes from all of us

Hi Glenn,

Happy New Year to you and the rest of the band!

Thank you all so much for such a fantastic evening, the band really made the wedding! The duet during the ceremony was perfect....... the special atmosphere we were looking.....  The music during the meal was also great, but what really made the day was the ceilidh.  Most of our guests had never been to a ceilidh before and I was worried they might need some persuading to get up and dance.  But you managed to get everyone up, dancing and having a fantastic time for every dance (the first dance was a particularly good idea!).  My main requirement when choosing a ceilidh band was a really good caller and you certainly delivered on that one ...............! We would happily recommend you to our friends and family and hope to see you in action again in the future. 

Hilary and Tim.

Wedding; Barnsdale hall, Rutland Water, Fri.17th. Sept. 2010

 Wedding held Barnsdale Hall Hotel Sept 17th. 2010



What can we say? Wow!!!!

 I knew you were good but you and your team were excellent. I wanted to let you know before we fly off on honeymoon how grateful we all are.  The music was out of this world and ~I had goose pimps all night long. It was everything I dreamed off, a packed dance floor all night long.  You certainly played and got everyone up.  I saw men and woman who I have never seen dance before in all my life who were up dancing and showing off their moves.

We have had so many calls and texts saying how great the music was and who were you. Your ears must have been burning because the compliments have been just flowing.  The music during the breakfast was faultless, Andrew and I adored it.

I can not put into words how grateful I am, you certainly made our wedding something very special

Thank you to everyone

Lots of love

Mr and Mrs Hogan!!!

Sophie and Andrew


Hi there Glenn

My absolute apologies for taking so long to write to you re our wonderful wedding on Valentines Day! This email has been on my massive list of things to do since the day after the wedding but things have just been so hectic!!

Basically I just wanted to write and say a huge THANK YOU for the tremendous party atmosphere you created on our special day. My sister got married in that same hall about 10 years ago and had a barn dance- all I remembered was how happy everyone had been and that they all got involved regardless of age/music taste. When the time came to plan my own wedding I knew I wanted something similar and I really couldn't have wished for better than you guys!! The buzz of energy that your music created and the witt and humour that came with your commentary throughout was simply outstanding! I just wish that my huge wedding dress hadn't off prevented me from getting in to the thick of it!!

For anyone who is considering booking the Bodgers Mate crew for a wedding or function do it! They totally were the life and soul of the party- I really could recommend them all day, every day! :) Everyone is still commenting on them months after our wedding!

Please keep me posted of future events you do in the South and we will be sure to be there.

All the best
