"We are writing a special thankyou for carrie who made our Engagement party a night to remember. What a fantastic night we all had and Carrie contributed to this massively!
Carrie isn't only an excellent singer she is able to entertain and get everyone involved no matter what age. With her endless repertoire of songs to choose from noone was disappointed and singing song requests was an added bonus!
With everyone enjoying the night we were lucky enough for Carrie to stay later than booked and sing a few more of our favourite songs.
We will definitely be booking Carrie and her band for our wedding!!
Again we would like to thank Carrie for making our special night perfect. I would also like to thank Carrie for keeping me calm and collected throughout the night!
Looking forward to hearing your fantastic band at our wedding!!
Thanks again, you were brill!!

"From all at Consett Golf Club who had the pleasure of an evening’s entertainment with Carrie last night. She was an absolute treat and performed for the Captains Farewell Dinner at the club. Carrie looked lovely, can sing anything, is extremely obliging and flexible with timings, and is a very very talented performer singing any artists songs from any generation. Brilliant night and thank you for making the evening such a success" Thank you very much and we wish you a happy and successful year!

"Carrie sang at my 21st Birthday swing party. Her voice is amazing in all genres, she brought class and elegance to the first half delivering a range of swing classics but then brought the party to life in the second half with a set of modern and classic party songs, getting everyone up on the dance floor. Carrie is not only a fantastic singer but also an all round performer who engages with the audience bringing laughs too. I would advise anyone to choose Carrie for their entertainment of any celebration as her talents are not limited. Thanks for an unforgettable night Carrie!"

"We want to say a massive thank you to Carrie Steele for making our wedding extra special, The solo performance in the chapel was beautiful and also fantastic how you suggested singing to the harp that we had already arranged for the chapel so the two came together, and it was lovely when you performed a song that my mam had asked for you to sing from her to me in the chapel which had everyone in tears. At the reception you performed a duo which was equally as beautiful and very relaxed as we all enjoyed the wedding breakfast. Then for the night time celebrations you performed with the band, the choice of music was great, lively and you got everyone up dancing and sing along. Everyone commented on what a gorgeous voice you have and thought you and the band were exceptional.
Thank you again. "

"I originally booked Carrie after hearing her singing at Wynyard hall Wedding Fayre in November and she sounded fantastic. We then decided to have her and the band at the wedding.
On the evening of the wedding guests were coming up to us saying the band sound fab just rehearsing so we were all really excited to hear them perform!
Carrie and the band were absolutely amazing and everyone was up dancing, all of the guest commented on how good they sounded and Carrie covered all sorts of songs and styles, even doing our special requests.
We would definitely recommend the Carrie Steele Band for any wedding!
Thankyou so much Carrie,
Regards, Jessica and Lee meadows Wynyard Hall, June 2013
"Many thanks Carrie for the great job you made of entertaining everyone at our show night in September. You really made the night go with a swing.
Your singing was great and you managed to find something for everyone. I loved the way you compered the night and handled the auction as you had such a great repartee with the audience.
Can't wait for New Year's Eve when you are entertaining us again.

"Had a great night on Saturday at Consett Golf Club listening to carrie Steele ,this girl certainly knows how to fill a dance floor. No matter what you request she's able to sing it, any age group - it doesn't matter! Nobody wanted the night to finish, one of the best nights the golf club has seen for many a year. Looking forward to her return in the near future."

"Our 1st ever Charity Ball in the North East, we needed the right live music to get all of our supporters/guests enjoying themselves from the minute they arrived on the red carpet. And this we certainly had. Recommended from one of our charity supporters, Carrie did absolutely everything to ensure that our diverse audience were all catered for, and what a fantastic night we all had.
From the day we confirmed our booking, Carrie kept in regular touch to ensure that she and her band had the correct music we needed to make our 1st ball a fantastic success. Feedback from our guests confirmed that dancing all night and listening to Carrie’s wonderful voice, all helped create a fabulous and very friendly atmosphere. I would happily recommend Carrie Steele for your occasion, whether it be a wedding/charity ball or you are just looking to have a party."

"Having decided that we were having a very small wedding (32 people) in a small venue I hadn’t thought about booking anyone to sing at the evening do until about 1 month before our wedding. I Googled a lot of singers in the North East but only one person’s voice stood out – Carrie's. I text her and it was her only day left in the month of October – bonus!!
Carrie then sent us a song list for us to choose from which we did and there were over 400 to choose from, the night was filled with requests and songs from the list and everyone LOVED the singing, so much so that she is still a talking point now.
Carrie truly added something very special to our wedding and we had such a brilliant night with her, we were all disappointed when the evening ended.
A true professional with a beautiful voice and a wonderful personality."

'Absolutely fantastic - they really made the night!
The quality of the band has definitely been one of the things that
people have kept talking about long after our wedding; the jazz during
the day while our guests ate followed by two absolutely brilliant
sets in the evening really made our day extra special. Carrie has an
incredible voice and really got our guests going and kept people
dancing all night long!
On top of this, even though we booked the music for our wedding quite
late, we were still able to submit special requests of all styles that were
performed to an amazingly high standard. Playing our song for our first dance was a perfect start
to our evening. We couldn't recommend them more highly!'

'Thank you once again for your fantastic christmas show performance. Our tenants have been talking about you and your singing for weeks now and as you know, the sheltered housing scheme is designed for those with dementia. Your wartime section was amazing and I've never seen the ladies and gentlemen so enthused and energetic. To my knowledge a group of 75 to 90 year olds have never stormed a stage to dance. It was a very special day for everyone involved and I thought you would appreciate this feedback as you made our party very special. Thanks again.'
