Rebecca and Tom, Wedding in Suffolk
Please can you pass on a HUGE thank you to the band and especially to Sam for their part in our wedding. They were absolutely amazing and every guest has commented on just how brilliant they were. The band were so interactive and kept everyone up on the dancefloor all night, it was incredible, they created such a fun, party atmosphere and knew just which songs to play to keep the crowd going.
Sam is just amazing, from playing the piano at the reception to DJing until 3am and then singing acoustics on Sunday – he was fantastic. We can’t thank him enough.
The music really made the wedding into such a memorable event for everyone and Tom and I are so grateful.
Sheryl Pointer, Wedding in Norfolk
We booked H2NY for our wedding celebration at Holkham Hall in Norfolk in July 2022.
We had looked at various bands via video clips and repertoire lists, and what we saw from H2NY made us feel that we would be in good hands.
As it turned out, we were in brilliant hands! These guys are sophisticated musicians with tremendous, international experience. From the moment that Sam replied to us, it was obvious that we were able to rely on him and his colleagues to take over.
Sam was very efficient about connecting with us and making suggestions, clearly aware that the couple has plenty to juggle ahead of the day and, once we had chatted through a few ideas, he was away and on it.
The way that the team arrived and set up was super professional, and the two sets that they played, with DJ interlude, were just fantastic!
If you want a great sound, designed to get all on their feet, played by very cool musicians who are super people, look no further!
Sam and H2NY made sure that we all had a superb evening and we have heard and read nothing but glowing compliments about them from all our guests since that evening!
H2NY are a top class band and wonderful people, and the joy and quality with which they play is super contagious!
Thank you so much, H2NY, for the very happy time that you gave us all!
Beth Long, Birthday Party in Woking
Friendly and organised from first contact, great tunes that got all ages in the dance floor. We’d love to have you back another time.
Ed Thomas, Wedding in Surrey
A huge thank you to H2NY for being so amazing for our wedding! The whole band are fantastic and we would highly recommend anyone to book them. Sam was quick to respond to all of our contact in the run up to our wedding and was super organised. Our guests had a great time dancing through the night to a brilliant band set list followed by Sam on the DJ decks with awesome accompanying saxophone. Thanks once again!!
Caitriona Jefferson, Wedding in Canterbury
We just wanted to send a message to thank you so much to you and the rest of the band. We loved the performance and a number of our friends have spoken to us saying how amazing it all was and how they loved the saxophonist.
Laura P, Wedding, Surrey
H2NY were out of this world! Amazing live band with fabulous energy! Our wedding evening reception was so much fun.
Kate Pedley, Birthday Party, Cheshire
Thank you so much for a fab time – you guys were incredible! Everyone i have spoke to have said how amazing the band were! Mum will be in touch about my younger sisters 21st in summer 2024
Charlie Olivier, Wedding
We had H2NY for our wedding on 07th May and wanted to share that they were everything we hoped for and more!
You never really know when booking a band you have only listened to a few demos of, but from the get-go Sam and the team were responsive, professional and incredibly helpful. All of my suggestions and preferences were indulged and the balance of the acoustic set, main set and DJ service was spot on. From Bruce Springsteen to Taylor Swift they nailed it.
The dance floor was always full and many of our guests have commented about the band and said how good they were. Couldn’t recommend these guys enough!
Sadye, Alden, Wedding, London
The band were absolutely amazing! They had our guests up and dancing until the last song and we’ve had so many compliments since. The saxophonist was a fabulous addition that our guests (and the bride and groom) also loved. Sam was great in helping in the run up to the day and performed a lovely version of our first dance song. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and we will definitely be looking to book again at another event in the future – we are already thinking about renewing our vows so we can have another party! Thank you SO much!
Stuart Netting, Wedding, Gravesend
Just a quick one to say a massive thank you for last night. You were absolutely brilliant and went down very well with all of our guests. We couldn’t have hoped for more. It made our day even more special!
Catherine Marsden, Wedding, Berkhamsted
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you, Steve and the rest of The Manhattans for making our wedding event so perfect.
I think I told you many times during the evening that I loved you (sorry – too much Prosecco) but I really did – you were amazing – such energy and atmosphere. Everyone thought you were amazing – the comment I got from pretty well all guests is “where can I get tickets to see this band”.
Not only that but you were so helpful before the event – every request, every communication you replied to almost straight away with such positivity and helpfulness.
It almost makes me wish I had more daughters to arrange a wedding for!
Thanks again Sam
Deborah O’Mahoney, Wedding, Benenden
Everyone had a fabulous time and the music was epic, exactly as we envisaged it being with guests dancing all night long. You read the room completely and I can’t thank you enough for making it so enjoyable for everyone, including the groom with your rendition of Sideways.
Also, thank you for learning ‘Making memories of us’ – truly appreciate you accommodating this request and also getting people to join after a short while.
From Steve this morning:
‘If you weren’t looking, you’d never know the real band weren’t there – they sounded just like the real thing’
Steve is well into his music and covering all genres, even the country theme – both new and old – and I have never heard him be so positive and complimentary as he was about you guys. You really and truly nailed it!
Charlotte Kelly, Wedding
Just wanted to send a MASSIVE thank you to you and the band for Friday night. We had the best time and H2NY were just brilliant. Probably evidenced by how hard we went for it on the dance floor!
Mark Allman, Birthday Party, Norwich
Just wanted to say huge thank you for Saturday. Sharon loved it and says it was her best night ever, her face was just a picture i won’t forget. She was very impressed with the music choice and the quality you guys played with. Also considering the current conditions I think it went better than I ever hoped. Thanks for making a very special night and one we will remember. Thanks
Mark Dowd, Wedding, Ware
We really enjoyed your set and we had multiple guest comment how impressed they were to. Really made the evening extra special
Joel Large, Wedding, Chesham
Thanks again for playing at our wedding. You guys were awesome and we’ve had loads of comments on how good the music was.
Hannah Ledger, Wedding, Welwyn
Thank you all so much the band was amazing, and the madness went down better than I imagined. Everyone said how good the guys were, and how much they enjoyed the band. I will definitely be recommending you guys!
Caitlin, Wedding, Biggleswade
Thanks so much, you guys were amazing! We had so many people tell us how good you were and quite a few have asked for your contact details already!
We had such a great day and you guys really were the icing on the cake.
Harriet Lines, Wedding, Godalming
Just got back from honeymoon and wanted to say what a fantastic job Steve and the band did on the 18th. We had a superb party and Steve nailed the first dance song along with all the rest! People are still telling us how great the band was.
Jen Godding, Wedding, Cissbury Barns
Alex and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding last week! We had an incredible evening. The first dance was perfect and the bonus song at the end went down an absolute treat. Alex has been singing it to me daily! Thanks so much for everything!!
Scott Jennings, Wedding, Essex
Thank you so much fo putting on an amazing performance. Everyone loved you guys and we had such a good time!

PICTON, L, WEDDING, BRISTOL
We would like to say a massive thank you to you guys as you were absolutely amazing. Everyone loved it and we couldn’t have wished for more on our day!
SHAILESH M, BIRTHDAY PARTY, CHIPPING NORTON
Exceptional talent and highlight of our event. We all highly recommend this amazing group and we are definitely booking them again
YASMIN C, BIRTHDAY PARTY, ABERDEEN
Absolutely amazing band! No hassle and Sam the lead singer could not have been more accommodating! Made our party what it was with a great variety of music for everyone! Really glad we also got the female vocalist and sax player as they just completed the sound of the band!
SARAH BRAIN, BIRTHDAY PARTY, LONDON
I booked Halfway to New York for my 40th Birthday party in October. The party had a Nashville theme and Sam and the band went out of their way to accommodate my love of country music! Sam spent time working through the playlist to ensure that it worked with the theme but that we also had a good mix of music to keep the dancing going throughout the evening. The band were absolutely amazing and my friends are still talking about them. I would not hesitate in booking them again.
AHMED CHAABAN, CORPORATE EVENT, DUBAI
It was AMAZING. Wanted and still will send you a thank you email. It was wonderful, Sam and the band were amazing! Super professional, amazing vibe, amazing talent!
PATRCK MACLENAN, CORPORATE EVENT, LONDON
These guys are the real deal. I knew they’d be good but they exceeded my/our expectations (and I book plenty of music acts for events). Communication was prompt and easy right from the off. They showed up on time, were super nice guys, so professional, friendly and incredibly talented. Our guests loved every second of the performance and no one sat down throughout (we danced and sang along to every track). Slick, charismatic, tight and musically so on point. Lead singer has a great voice too. We wanted them to go on and on. I’d recommend them wholeheartedly and would book them again in a heartbeat. You won’t be disappointed.
DAVID BERV, WEDDING IN SANTORINI, GREECE
Sam and H2NY exceeded all our expectations and helped make our wedding day extra special! The were a dream to work with for our destination wedding in Greece. From our initial phone call and throughout the entire process leading up to the big day, they were super responsive, professional and helpful (and fun!). Sam’s voice is unparalleled and all the band members are very talented musicians and performers. We used them for an acoustic set during our ceremony, DJ services during cocktail hour, as MC throughout the evening, and then the 6-piece band for dancing. At our request, they learned several new songs ahead of time for our ceremony and first dances. Each part was executed perfectly and exactly as we imagined. They were incredible in terms of set lists and interacting with our friends and family. All our guests were up on their feet dancing the entire night! We had so many guests come up to us afterwards and ask how we were able to find such an incredible band. Also worth noting that we had some last minute timing changes due to weather and they were incredibly flexible and helpful! We wish we had some other big event to throw just so we could hire these guys again!”
GISELLE MACKINLAY, BIRTHDAY PARTY, LONDON
Dear Sam, and the whole H2NY band,
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for such an incredible evening on Friday.
I honestly can’t put into words just how amazing you were, you literally made my evening.
I have been to many 18ths, 21st and black tie events and enjoyed bands, but you surpassed them all.
The playlist of songs was perfect, the music was outstanding, and your voice was simply phenomenal. Your energy and enthusiasm was unparalleled. We were thrilled with the saxophonist, and loved dancing with him on the dance floor.
Everyone was dancing, and I genuinely had the best night of my life. I didn’t want to leave the dance floor.
You guys have a big future ahead of you! All the guests were raving about you, and commented that you were exceptional.
We’re already planning mum & dads 60th…. is it possible to book 5 years in advance?! I must see your calendar for upcoming gigs as I am desperate to come to any that are near us!!
Thank you again for such an unforgettable evening. I will cherish the memories for the rest of my life.
Please extend my thanks to the rest of the band.
All the best,
CHRISTINA BREADEN, WEDDING IN PARIS, FRANCE
Thank you so much for providing wonderful music for our wedding! And for helping with the audio equipment. You guys did a great job feeling the crowd and playing music they liked. It was a night we will never forget!
JACOB RAWSON, UK WEDDING
H2NY were utmost professionals from out the outset, right up until the last note on our wedding day.
Sam was quick to get in touch, and forthcoming in letting us suggest songs, and even learnt our first dance specially!
On the day, they were punctual, friendly and easy-going, and were also very flexible. They kept the dance floor full with their flawlessly performed music through the ages, and the energy and skill in which all four played was talked about long into the next day.
I couldn’t recommend H2NY enough. Thanks Sam and the gang!
GEORGIE HAMILTON, UK WEDDING
You guys were EVEN better than we remember! A mega thank you for absolutely smashing it! We were over the moon with your energy, song choices and performance. You created an awesome atmosphere for everyone to thoroughly enjoy themselves. Thanks so much for your brilliant music. It had just the right depth and professionalism for the venue while being super fun. I loved seeing the dance floor so packed! A thank you too for your extreme efficiency before the event. You were a dream to work with – lightening email replies and organisation.
CATIE SHERLOCK, UK WEDDING
Just wanted to say a huge thanks you for Saturday! We really couldn’t have asked for anything better. You absolutely smashed the first dance and the set list was just incredible! We have had so many comments about how you were the best wedding band anyone has ever experienced. We wish we could live it all over again. We really can’t thank you enough!!
JUDITH VEENHUIZEN, WEDDING IN CHIANTI, ITALY
H2NY were phenomenal! Sam was great to work with, he was really flexible and helpful. Their performance was amazing. We asked them to perform an altered version of 500 miles as our first dance song and it was absolutely perfect. They nailed every song, built up their set list to really get the party started and managed to get every one of our guests dancing with us. The whole band had such a positive attitude, even when it started pouring down and it looked like our whole outdoor wedding had to be moved inside last minute they were helping out and looking for solutions. And when we eventually moved back outside they made it all work seamlessly. We cannot thank them enough. They gave us the party we had been hoping for. Saying we highly recommend them doesn’t even begin to cover it.
NATHALIE LEONG, WEDDING IN SIFNOS, GREECE
I have always dreamt of a band for my wedding. Thank you so much Sam and H2NY for making our pre-wedding dinner, the wedding ceremony as well as the party unforgettable. Sam is so professional, flexible and helpful. All the rather difficult logistics went seamlessly. We were looking for a band for our wedding in Greece, to cover 2 days of partying. Sam not only played the piano for our church wedding (including french and latin songs), but H2NY also played jazz on our pre-wedding dinner, as well as party music during the wedding party. You are phenomenal! During the party, you got all our guests dancing, there were songs for everybody’s taste, the saxophonist was incredible playing in the dance crowd, and all the other musicians from the band were also perfect. I didn’t leave the dance floor! Everybody commented on how great you all were. Sam, your voice is amazing! We highly recommend all of you, and I was already asked for your contact details! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making the day such a memorable one.
MELISSA WOOD, UK WEDDING
We just wanted to say thank you very much – you were all absolutely brilliant. You sounded amazing, created the right sort of atmosphere we were looking for and had everyone up on the dance floor. All our friends loved the music – the indie vibe went down an absolute storm! You performed the first dance just as requested and I’ll have great memories of jumping around to Wheatus and Blink 182. We’re so pleased that we booked you as our band – we would highly recommend you to anyone!”
MARRIOTT COUNTY HALL, LONDON (JAMIE SHIPP), CORPORATE EVENT
The band were great and really professional throughout the booking process and on the day. They arrived 2 hours before the set up time and were able to rehearse and get set up with time to spare. Sam and the band were also accommodating by allowing us to use the mic to make some announcements during their break and took some requests for songs during that intermission from some of the guests. During the end of the second set with 15 minutes remaining, the hotel security informed us that there had been some complaints over noise so Sam was able to adjust his set and play quieter to ensure there was no further disturbance. Both sets were made up of great songs that were loved by the guests and many were dancing and singing along. The great reception to some of the tracks prompted the band to then play more from that artist and they tailored the set to what people were enjoying and what was getting a great response. From both a booking and arranging, and performance point of view, H2NY were fantastic and I would happily recommend them in the future.
RAY WILSON, UK WEDDING
It was an absolutely fantastic wedding and the day could not have gone better. Even the snow was a bonus and gave us some spectacular photos, although we hope it didn’t make travelling home too difficult for you all. Can you pass on our sincere thanks to the band for a great job. The music was outstanding, the song choices really worked and we had some lovely feedback on the way you interacted with our guests. Indeed, without exception, our guests thought you were brilliant. Can we also thank you personally for your thorough professionalism, advice and guidance during the planning process – it made it all so much easier and felt effortless. Thank you all once again, and we will certainly have no hesitation in recommending you to others. All the best! Diane & Ray
ROLLO HOARE, UK WEDDING
You guys were absolutely fantastic and kicked-off the evening spectacularly – we could not have been happier. The quality of the music your band produce is phenomenal, and I’m so glad we got the female vocalist as well.
MATT HOWARD-CAIRNS, UK WEDDING
You guys were amazing at the wedding – we’ve had so many comments both at the time and since about how much you guys rocked it! We had a great time!
CHRIS HEPBURN, UK WEDDING
We had a fantastic day! Thank you so much for absolutely smashing the music, we had so much fun dancing with everyone. My wife loved the Chilli Peppers – you guys killed it!
RICHARD MIRFIN, WEDDING IN SICILY
We can’t thank Sam and H2NY enough for helping make our wedding day in Sicily so special, extremely fun and forever memorable! All our guests commented on how insanely good the band was both vocally and at creating a fantastic atmosphere that made everyone want to get up and dance – we would wholeheartly agree! Sam made everything such a joy during the planning stages – so professional and genuinely friendly and and helpful. His solo singing during dinner and our first dance displayed just how talented he is a singer; it was perfect and exactly what we wanted. The band and DJing entertainment post dinner was just as amazing and no one wanted it to end – we would highly recommend H2NY!
SAMSUNG, CORPORATE EVENT
You guys were incredible and we will most definitely be in touch regarding future events.
NICK HEYWOOD, UK WEDDING
We wanted to say thank you so, so much for playing at our wedding yesterday. We can honestly say it was our favourite part of the day and you could not have put together a better set list for us. We both loved it personally and have also had the most amazing feedback about you from our guests, particularly how perfect the sound quality was. Sam, you have an amazing voice and as a band you just gel perfectly. We would have absolutely no hesitation recommending you to our friends and family, but doubt we would need to after yesterday! Hope you enjoyed playing for us and were able to have time to relax in between your sets. It’s a testament to how good you guys are that the barn was full of people dancing away despite the gorgeous weather outside, especially as the venue said the barn can often be empty when the weather is so nice.
ALISTAIR WHITELEY, UK WEDDING
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to Sam and Halfway to New York. They smashed it. A slick, professional and truly lovely bunch of guys. From the ceremony and drinks reception acoustic entertainment to the band and DJ – the list of thanks is for life. You made our wedding such a wonderful and memorable day. So many guests commented on how awesome the music was. And it was!! We were just so thrilled to have you guys make our special day even more special
THOMAS MILLER INVESTMENT, CORPORATE EVENT
We had a post-Ball meeting a couple of days ago and the committee asked me to pass on their gratitude for an excellent performance, so once again, many thanks to you and the band. Absolutely nothing but positives!
THE ANDERSON FOUNDATION, CORPORATE EVENT
Halfway to New York are extremely talented musicians who cover a wide range of genres, and are adaptable to playing in intimate surroundings or to hundreds of guests in a large arena. Their endearing and genuine nature is infectious.
