Birthday Party, 8th February 2014 - Melton Mowbray

Hello Richard,

Thank you both for the performance at my party, you went down a storm and really made it a night to remember. You both worked really hard and I appreciated the mini encore when we hadn't tired of dancing!!

I hope you enjoyed yourselves and it was a bit more than "just another job" for you.. There were numerous compliments from my family and friends, several of whom are musicians themselves, and I have already passed your details to the venue for future reference..

Once again, thank you for playing a big part in my celebration and helping it to flow seamlessly!


Birthday Party - Nottingham University 16th November 2013

Just a quick note to say how much Acoustic Vibes were appreciated at my party last night. All my guests thought they were great, they had a brilliant playlist and were very accommodating. We certainly will, and have recommended them to family and friends. Can you please pass on our gratitude. Kind Regards, Vivienne.

New Years Eve 2013 - The Blue Bell, Gringley on the Hill

Amazing gig, we played for over 4 hours! Landlord said 'I am delighted, you have kept everyone here'. We sure did, didn't leave until 3.45am. Now that's commitment to live music

Hi Richard,

Would just like to say a huge thank you for your performance at my 21st last night. Everyone commented on how good you were and they all thoroughly enjoyed it, I will be sure to recommend you to others.

Thanks again,

Hi Rich and Jason

Just to say thank you again for playing on Sunday. It created a brilliant atmosphere - everyone said how much they enjoyed it. Elizabeth and Will were really pleased - so not bad for two blokes we picked up in a pub.
Best wishes,
Karen, Hannah and family Southwell gig August 19th 2012

Hi Richard and Jason

"Just a quick email to thank you so much for playing during our wedding ceremony, wedding breakfast and afterwards at the reception. All our guests said how lovely it was to have live acoustic music at our wedding, and you really warmed everyone up for the disco. Many thanks again"

Hi Richard,
Just to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding last week.
I must admit I personally was really looking forward to your performance and you didn't let me down, it was super! It's a shame me and Ali could have ignored the mingling and just listened to you both!!
Our guests were very impressed and we have passed your agency number onto some already!
We wondered if you have a list of the forthcoming events that public can go to. I know it will probably be down South but Ali and I and My Mum and Dad were thinking about coming to watch at some point.
Many thanks again

Man Bites Dog were brilliant and more than lived up to our expectations for the evening entertainment at our wedding. They were clearly very talented artists, but the addition of the interaction and banter with all the guests made for a very special evening.
Their version of the Stone Roses Resurrection went down a storm and speaking to the guys afterwards, they really enjoyed performing the song too. If they are ever playing in the area again, I would definitely go and watch them.
Many thanks Richard and Jason!

Marcus Hughes – 13.09.2012


Hi Richard and Jason,
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding reception on the 20th August. The music was brilliant and we had so many guests (even the slightly older ones) coming up to us and saying how much they had enjoyed your set.
One of the highlights of our day was being able to have our first dance outside in the garden, and we have passed your details on to the many people that have asked!!
Thanks again,

Martin and Bernie Healey 20.08.2011


Hi Rich,
Al and I just wanted to say a big thank you for 4th June, we really loved your music! Everyone was really impressed by you guys, and it really made our evening having you play.
If you ever need a reference or want a comment for your website then please let us know - we would happily recommend you!
Thanks again

What a wonderful way to see the New Year in!!
Man Bites Dog were outstanding playing songs of many genres to suit our very diverse audience! Everyone was dancing at the end- and we were thanked and congratulated by all our guests on such a wonderful evening!!

Really impressed with you guys. Very high level of musicianship. Everyone said how much you added to the evening.
It was a perfect way to lead from the meal to the disco - from mellow tunes while we were on coffee, to the end of your set when everyone was up and dancing.
Many thanks!
