So diverse and entertaining from start to finish. This band is not just vocally outstanding but exceptional musicians. Trust me if you get a chance to see them, you will not be disappointed. Great interaction with their audience and so versatile they appeal to all ages.  Tracie Ashford  The Distance played at our wedding in January 2014 at Didsbury House Hotel, which is not a huge venue for a live band but they were just perfect for us. Even after a few weeks now since our 'big day' we are still getting compliments about our choice of evening entertainment! They were FAB! We had given all our guests song cards over dinner and even with the short notice they did a great job and played many of our guests requests!!! Professional, enthusiastic and great all rounders as they also provided the DJ element for us that we needed! Many thanks!!!  Charlotte Marshall  I can't thank you both enough for making our annual dinner as spectacular as the last! You went above and beyond to cater for everyone. Nothing but praise for you once again.. Pure class!  Paul Rodgers (Lexus cars)  We've seen Sophie & Mat play all around Knutsford this past year or so.. And we finally decided to book them for our wedding last June! They know how to throw a party! We couldn't have asked for a better band to play for us. Such talent! We recommend to anyone who will listen!  Francesca & Will  The Distance performed at a friends wedding party in July – they were fantastic. Huge range of music, excellent musically, super people – everyone there loved them. They travelled a huge distance to perform and were as happy leaving as they were arriving in spite of hours of travel ahead of them and the party being one of 5 gigs they had that weekend. Fab personalities, we were sorry they had to leave, they felt like good friends by the end of the evening. Can’t praise them too highly  Joanna Gallanders  We had The Distance booked for our Owners Parties here at Reighton Sands.. The Distance kept the party going till late and absolutely rocked the place. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and danced the night away. A massive thankyou to Sofiee & Mat for a brilliant night. We would definitely welcome them back anytime!  Dan Blowers (Bourne Leisure)  My beautiful wife and I saw these guys play at a friends wedding a few years back.. And instantly booked them for ours. They are TRUE professionals looking to help any way they can. No ego, just likeable talented musicians who know how to create a party! The energy and enthusiasm they put into their show is incredible! We've recommended them so many times i'm starting to think we should start charging a fee! You honestly won't find any better than Mat and Sofiee. James & Sophia Williams  James Williams (wedding entertainment)  Amazing Duo!! We have had these two to play at our pub (The Thomas Osborne, Leeds, Roundhay) for the second time now, due to a popular demand and we will definately be continuing to get them back on a regular basis! Two great vocalists, a great guitarist, both with great passion that create a great atmosphere! They are the whole package! I highly recommend them to anyone who likes and appreciates good music and talent.  Emily Shepherdson (Thomas Osbourne Restaurant)  Thank you for coming last Thursday, we all had a fantastic night! Looking forward to having you again on 12th September!  Sharon Stubbs (Kyte Hotel, Darrington)  Hi Mat & Sofiee, a belated thankyou for making our Meningitis night spectacular, we hoped you would be good, but we had no idea how good you both actually are, thanks also for being flexible on he night and really nice people too. Everybody loved it, 18 year olds to 80 year olds, oh yeah and us inbetween, we raised £3,400 in total, now people are asking when we will do another one !!!!!!

They really know how to get the place going, played really good music and are clearly very talented. We loved them so much we've booked them again for this month! Can't wait, thanks again guys from everyone at Plato's xxx  Danielle Leech (Platos restaurant)  Thank you 'The Distance' for entertaining the guests at our wedding on Friday 5th July at San Rocco.

Thanks guys!!!!  Kathryn & Terry Evans  On behalf of my mother and myself we'd like to thank you for making her 60th birthday very special!! We spent months looking for the perfect entertainment and with your voices and personalities you exceeded our expectations. We danced the night away! Thanks again!  Geoff Shepherd  Thanks to Mat and Sophie for playing at our wedding. Having never seen The Distance before I was a bit apprehensive but I had no need to be worried. They turned up, they were super friendly, set up their gear and kept the dance floor full all night. They sounded great, chose awesome music and kept the party atmosphere going. Couldn't have asked for more and everyone we've spoken to loved them. Will definitely recommend them to friends and family. Thanks again to you both and hopefully see you soon!  Alex Gregory  Working as a professional DJ for over 10 years i have heard many live singers and bands. The Distance are to me the best I have had the pleasure of working with for a few reasons. 1, professional and polite people. 2, equipment quality and set up is spot on and sound is amazing. 3, can sing and perform many different types of music. 4, play for the crowd not themselves. 5, They simply can sing and play and they light up the room doing it.  Stuart Richardson (Ace DJ Services)  Thank you for a great night of entertainment at my 21st. Everyone really enjoyed the night and I will definitely be booking you again the next time I have a party!  Josh Garner  We saw The Distance for the first time last year, really enjoyed them. We booked them for my son's 21st birthday party, which was last weekend. They were absolutely fabulous, good entertainment, great lighting, everyone enjoyed them. Can't wait for the next time time. Would recommend them most definitely.  Maggie Garner  Thanks for attending our wedding yesterday. It truly was a pleasure meeting the two of you and me and my new wife agree that you are a very talented and lively duo. We look forward to seeing you again in the future and here's to the throng of upcoming parties we hope to pass in your direction!  Chloe Davidson ...
