"Hi Jo and Rory. Thank you for putting on a great show last Saturday. The band looked terrific in red and white, were professional and you all threw yourselves into the party spirit. The dance floor was full all of the time and you all played / sang very well together. We also enjoyed the salsa lesson, and it worked really well having the demo on the stage so everyone could see. We've had good feedback from our guests, and several picked up your cards. On the whole, a great evening, thank you!" Caroline, London (Chiswick), November 2015
"We booked Diáspora for our wedding, having listened to some of their tracks online and read the numerous great reviews, and were not disappointed. The band were very professional, managed to set up in a very tricky venue and did a fantastic, energetic set. All of our guests commented on how great the music was and it was a pleasure to employ professionals who knew how to deliver." Nick & Lucy, wedding, London (Bishopsgate), October 2015
"The band were amazing. Their lively, upbeat music was a great choice for our wedding entertainment and they are obviously very talented musicians and dancers who have a love for what they do which really contributes to the great atmosphere that their music creates. They were very professional too, the contact and planning before the event was excellent and no doubt contributed to the smooth running of the evening... Importantly too, they all seemed to be nice, friendly people, and it's nice to be able to look back on the day and feel this way about everyone who contributed to the event even if they were not there as a guest."
"What can I say? The band were incredible! We loved them and we have not stopped talking about them since. So talented and they added the 'cherry on the top' of a wonderful birthday celebration! Could you please pass on my sincere thanks to Rory for being so lovely to deal with and to the rest of the band who were so gracious and clearly love what they do! Many Many thanks." Mandy, Staines, August 2015
“Thanks for your hard work to make our reception such a success - Tim & I loved every second and the band went down a storm… Diáspora pulled out all the stops to make our wedding reception the fun & energetic party we wanted. They appealed to our broad spectrum of guests with funky recognisable tunes including a Latin twist. From initial enquiry until the pack away the band were a pleasure to work with - all questions dealt with quickly and with a real desire that we should get exactly the wedding reception we wanted. I would not hesitate in recommending Diáspora - I had full confidence that they would be the perfect band, and in fact our expectations were exceeded. Thanks for making the day perfect - we fully intend to see you perform again:-)” Jo & Tim, Salisbury, Wiltshire
“A big thank you to Diáspora for playing at our world music festival, bringing Latin sounds to Richmond Riverside and encouraging the crowd to move their feet! The band delivered a lively set and were prompt and reliable during the process.” - On The Edge World Music Festival 2013, Richmond Arts Service
★ ☆ Diáspora is one of the great choices we made for our wedding ☆ ★
First of all, thank you to Diáspora for your understanding of our needs.
- We didn't know how to book a band.
- We love salsa and Cuban music but not too serious.
- We didn't know much about salsa dancing.
- Most of our guests were not familiar with Latin music.
But we wanted to have Latin music because the wedding was in summer and it would make a difference and our guests would be interested.
So we had a problem to solve and Diáspora did it.
It was a calm and easy booking process. Diáspora knew exactly what we needed and took great patience to wait for us, to understand what we needed.
At our wedding party
> Background music
Diáspora played salsa music as background music in early time of the reception. Our guests enjoyed their conversation, moving their bodies to the music. Surprisingly, many guests knew some of the music!
> Easy to enjoy Latin music
Diáspora played some songs with something simple and easy rhythm to our guests that some kids started to dance ; )
> Get people grooving
And then after the dinner, Diáspora gave us a 5-minute salsa dance lesson. It was really successful!!! Many of our guests enjoyed so much to follow the rhythm, laughing at each other. After the lesson, guests were just enjoying dancing, forgetting about "how to dance" which is fantastic!
Our wedding party was very successful and the most important element was definitely Diáspora! Everybody was talking about the band after the party!!!
