Oh my God!!! These guys are the best wedding band ever. I know everyone always thinks their own band are the best but all of our guests said it was the best band they ever heard at a wedding...... Everyone single person was up dancing, it was super. 

I couldn't recommend these guys enough......

Hi bridie73,

we got married in Cascais near Lisbon. We had the best day ever. I am so jealous, I would love to do it all again. I planned all pure wedding myself & loved it (yep! I'm a control freak......). U'll have a ball with DC. They made our day so much fun, u'll have a ball. Where are u getting married?

Hi Steffie thanks for your help and the updated ceremony list, yes booked the band and dj 3 hours each. Haven’t managed to think of a first dance yet but working on it lol.

Hi Kathy I’m so jealous you organized the whole bit on your own I would panic and run away lol, have a planner organizing the wedding on our behalf. Also thanks for reassuring me on DC despite there’s loads of great revues online. Did you send their dj a playlist?

Cascais seems to be a lovely place to wed I'm getting married in the south of Portugal the Algarve, nevertheless would have considered Lisbon too just never thought of it. May I ask you where did you go for the honeymoon? xx

I left the play lists completely up tBeth's band & the DJ I knew I was in safe Hands. They observed the crowd & played suitable songs. 

We went to Mexico, Toronto & New York on honeymoon. We're in Cascais for a week too so had a whole month of holidaying. Was fantastic.... X

Double cocktail were the most amazing wedding entertainers I have ever come across. Truly professional they are versatile and are able to adapt their style throughout the day carefully to provide an excellent series of scenarios which made our day absolutely memorable and perfect! They started with subtle acoustic ceremony music, skilfully set up and presented beautifully with our chosen ceremony songs. Dave was also able to accompany our guest solo trumpeter which added emotion and depth to the bride entrance procession- simply gorgeous. Then they provided cocktail acoustic set whilst we had our welcome drinks - subtle and stunning. Vocal harmonies were amazing and acoustic guitar was lovely in this setting. Then we had our meal and after that they transformed their set into a booming party set with great lighting and their style was brilliant - I cannot recommend them enough - their momentum and energy kept the party going until early hours - thanks a million - unforgettable and amazing musicians who interact with guests all night - great people xxxxxx

Hi Kathy I’m so thrilled to hear all went well and there was no need to send a playlist to the DJ I can now relax and look forward to our special day thanks a lot for all info. Your honeymoon sounds like magic I’m so jealous! Hopefully will manage to persuade h2b to book a fantastic honeymoon destination as well, love the idea of Mexico and NY but first need to save enough

Hey Vicki may I ask you did you get married in church? your wedding day just sounds fantastic I can hardly wait for mine to come. Thanks for all the info girlies and congratulations once again

It sure was magic. After the calmness of Cascais if was a bit of a crazy holiday. Just amazing.
We had a church ceremony too. Found a stunning little church close to our hotel. The priests & sacristan were truly amazing & so helpful. If ur even half thinking of a church wedding, just go for it. A little bit of paper work but well worth it.

A huge thank you to Double Cocktail for performing at our wedding at the Sheraton Algarve Beach Club in September 2013. I cannot recommend Double Cocktail enough to anyone who is seeking a live band. From the moment I contacted Steffie and Dave they simply couldn't do enough to accomodate our every request. Steffie you reassured me all the way and answered the many many emails I sent to you from the UK. On the night itself you surpassed all our expectations, just as you said you kept everyone dancing and I have never had so many positivie comments about the evening entertainment at a wedding. You two are truely amazing and made our day the best of our lives. If only we could do it all again!  Any bride wanting a band look no further - Double Cocktail are incredible.

Thanks Jeanie (Herts, UK)

Hi everyone if you’re looking for an amazing band to perform your wedding these are the ones to book. Saw them last Saturday in Dublin and they simply blew me socks off they got the whole crowd up dancing to their tunes, congrats dc!! you guys simply rock!!

When you are searching a band for your event, the choices seem to be endless, even more so, complicated. Make sure that you choose a band that is in the right category for the type of party you are having.

The Bussiness Band are a great for Algarve Weddings. Fantastic entertainment and really get the guests going, very interative with the crowd and guaranteed to please. I can highly reccomend them for Algarve Weddings, Private Parties or functions. You ca see them plaing live on fridays in the Melting Pot in Quinta do lago, in Izzys beach bar on sunday afternoons and at BJs beach bar in the afternoons on fridays. They also play at the pool bar in Dunas duradas on saturday evenings. They can be booked as a duo, 3 piece or 4 piece band and also provide a superb DJ service for the night party. A great bunch of young guys who really know how to entertain and get on with all of the guests, including the kids!!. If you need any more info their website is - algarve wedding band or you can call or email them on Tel : (+351) 912 224 445

Double Cocktail were absolutely amazing. Dave played classical guitar as our guests arrived and Steffie's voice was beautiful for our ceremony songs. In the evening Steffie MC'd the cake cutting and then the party really started. One of my friend's said it was hard to tell if it was the original records playing or the band they were so good. It was amazing as EVERYONE danced. DC read the mood of the crowd perfectly. We had quite a few teenagers, as well as people in their 20s,30s,40s,50s,60s and 70s and they catered for us all. The overwhelming feedback was they were the best wedding band they had ever come across. Professional, talented and fun!
