"I just want to say a massive THANK YOU for the electric atmosphere you all created at our Christmas Party! We had so much fun, you and your music was amazing and everyone clearly loved it!. People were up dancing from start to finish....some that we never thought in a million years would be caught on the dance floor! That itself is a huge credit to you boys! We appreciated everything you did for us and cannot recommend you highly enough! For young lads, you were all so professional, brilliant musicians and lovely chaps! Well done and Thank you again!"
– Danielle Grubb, 12 January 2019, Gray-Dawes Christmas Party
"A massive thanks to The Transformers for playing our wedding in December. They were incredible! We've had so many comments from our guests about how good they were and how fun they made the night. They were also more than happy to have a family member (a singer!) join them on stage to sing with them which was a nice surprise. They even threw in a couple of Xmas 80's hits for us! We'll hopefully get a chance to see you play another gig soon."
– Sam Beeson, 2 January 2019, wedding in London
"The Transformers were hands down the best performers I have seen in a long time, talented, professional and unique. They kept a fantastic energy in the room, which was evident in the fact that the dance floor was far too small for all the people who wanted to dance. A fantastic themed mix of energy and nostalgia, highly recommended for any event."
– Paul Wilde, 22 October 2018, Police Charity Ball
"Absolutely brilliant night at Rose and Crown in Thorpe guys. Your performance and music choice made the surprise birthday party extra special for my wife."
– Colin Bottomley, 26 September 2018, birthday party in Thorpe
"Just wanted to say thank you so so much for playing at our wedding last Thursday. You guys were insane! You were booked by my beautiful bridesmaid & her husband as a wedding gift....safe to say you were the best wedding gift ever! Great setlist, great fun & you had everyone hitting the dance floor hard (including me !). We've had lots of feedback from our guests saying they loved you (plus the owner of the venue was very happy with how professional you were when it came to setting up/clearing up after yourselves :-) ). Keep us posted with any other gigs you're playing as we'd love to see you again! Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day one to remember."
