SKP are a highly-acclaimed, energetic, rock, pop & party dance band with three decades of experience.
We're very proud to say that all testimonial comments are genuine and were either emailed after a gig or spoken at the time.
"It's virtually impossible not to get up and dance by the end of the night."
Rachel Fones, Reporter: The Croydon Advertiser
"Thanks Doug, Everyone had a fantastic time. They all loved your sets, the diversity of the numbers and the delivery was spot on. Many thanks to you all, From all of us."
Steve Brown, Best Man (Aug 2015)
"What can I say..OUTSTANDING! What a night, wouldn't have been half as good without these boys! If anyone is thinking of hiring SKP- DO IT NOW, they are fantastic. Recommended to anyone, We're already planning the next party! TOP CLASS lads, see ya soon!"
- Dannie, South Nutfield
"We chose SKP to headline our all day music event because we knew they would get people moving."
- Alan Munday, Ruskin House charity event organiser
"I know this goes without saying, but I'm jolly well going to say it anyway Saturday night's performance was outstanding. You got the crowd just right and it was superb to see everyone dancing right through to the end. I've seen quite a few SKP gigs, and this was the best yet as far as I'm concerned! There's no other band I even considered. Thanks chaps Tom and Sarah, and the whole Sandhurst officers' mess, and their guests are very very grateful."
- Tom, Sandhurst Officers' Mess.
"I know it's only a pub gig and I know it's only Nutfield, but none of the other bands touch your performances in here. In fact, our small gathering of Nutfield gentlemen ONLY visit this pub when SKP are playing now. Otherwise our Friday trips are to London or The Forum in Tunbridge Wells for music or real ale and beards in The Garland.
Why people would rather stay in and watch X-Factor is just beyond me."
- Nick, Nutfield
"We would all like to thank SKP for providing a wonderful musical contribution to what was a magical day. We had so many comments from people who attended the evening session saying how much they enjoyed the music you played. We were amazed at the breadth of your musical repertoire, and the quality with which you played the numbers Jess and Aaron requested."
- Stephen (father of the bride), Farnham
"Just want send you and the other guys a very big thank you for making our charity party such a brilliant one, everyone mentioned to me how good you were and they weren't wrong.... I know a few mentioned to me that they would use you in the future so have passed your details on to them :-) Thank you so so much for a fab night, we managed to raise £467 for our charity which is brilliant."
- Sarah, Aldershot
"I came to a friend's party back in July last year at The Tunnel House, Cirencester and thoroughly enjoyed the music it was a great night! Most of our friends that came including ourselves were first-timers and had never heard you guys play before - we all thought you were brilliant!"
- Rachael, around and about the Tunnel House, Coates, nr. Cirencester
"You were amazing ..... you get better every year. Everyone was raving all day sunday about you guys ..... thanks so much ..... will get a date to you ASAP for next year and pray you can come. If it's any consolation its takes us all week to recover!!!!!!!!!!
THANKS SOOOO MUCH xxxxxxxxx!"
- Mary & all, around and about the Tunnel House, Coates, nr. Cirencester
Before the gig (to Paul):
"With a fancy bass like that you'd better be good. So, impress me - I'm a bass player too."
In the interval:
"Ok, I'm impressed: you guys really rock!"
- Exceedingly attractive lady. The Lion Brewery, Ash (July 2015)
"Thank you all so much for putting on a great show on Saturday evening - I have to say that after the bad weather on the Friday and Sat morning you set my mind at ease, arriving promptly and calmly setting up, and then playing a storming set. Everyone (there were more than 130 guests) said 'the band were excellent'. You made it a truly memorable party and I can't thank you enough. Not only that, but you happily played well into the morning. I will certainly recommend you to anyone who wants a band that really does deliver!"
- Ally, Garden Party in marquee, Normandy, Nr. Guildford
"I wish half the CDs I get every week from major record companies had one tenth the musicality of this band."
- Johnny Black, Mojo magazine
Is there anything you guys can't play?"
- Thoroughly decent girl, The Old Surrey Hounds, Caterham, NYE 2015
"It never ceases to amaze me how three guys can produce such a full sound - you sound more like a five-piece band than a trio.
How the hell do you do it?
- Alastair Lawson, The Lion Brewery, 29 July 2017
Thanks so much for playing at my and Rachel’s party last night - amazing act as always.
Everyone kept commenting how good you are. I really appreciate you all taking the time to travel this far.
Ben, 30th Birthday Party near Devizes, Jan 2018
"It was a great evening last night. Such a varied set and the time flew by. Definitely worth the drive ... a lovely friendly pub.
As always, lovely to see Honor Shearing and, of course, master of the bass Paul Shearing!"
