I had the pleasure of photographing an event in Manchester recently where Soph & Mat were playing. WOW ! What a genuine talent. Musically exceptional, and genuinely lovely people. It's like watching a great duo with full backing band - but with two people ! You will honestly be at the top of my recommendations list moving forwards. Really hope to see you again soon. Thank you for a great night. Jon. More...
Soph & Mat are truly talented! The sets played at our wedding were absolutely seamless, the dance floor packed and there was such a good energy that lasted all night! Their style is so unique and these guys are MASTERS of their craft! Absolutely reccomend them to anyone looking. From our initial enquiry until after the wedding they were super helpful and professional! Now, we just need an excuse for another party so we can do it all again!!! More...
The Distance performed at our recent wedding at Broadoaks in the lakes and were brilliant. We received lots of comments about how good they were. Their set was perfect. Can't recommend them highly enough. More...
Soph and Matt played our wedding in September and were incredible! We were after something a little different but that would still be popular and get everyone dancing and they didn’t disappoint! The looping work they do is really impressive! More...

Very talented and fantastic choice of tracks - something for everyone and not your usual wedding band.
I met Sophie & May at a wedding show and they’re friggin’ awesome! Along with being super talented, they’re bloody lovely people! They have such a cool mix of songs to play, I totally had to boogy to backstreet boys - everybody!!! This brought joy to my day!!! I can not recommend you guys enough, such a talented and beautiful duo! More...
We are over the moon with Sophie and Mat’s performance at our wedding. Sophie and Mat were professionals from our very first interaction and went above and beyond to accommodated our very specific needs and those of the venue. Not only did Sophie and Mat learn and perform our first dance (amazingly) they are also recording it for us in the studio. All our guests commented on how amazing Sophie and Mat are. Highly recommended. Thank you ever so much, Lisa and Ian More...
We hired Soph and Matt to sing at the drinks reception of lour wedding on the 6.9.19 and they did not disappoint. fab song choices and sang amazingly, these two are super talented we could not recommend enough.
Thank you so much for playing for our wedding, you guys were amazing! Everybody commented how good you were and it really finished off our day perfectly! The set list was fab, with all your loop pedals and gadgety things it sounded like much more than just the two of you, and you performed our first dance perfectly (and we just about pulled it off!). I’d just like to keep reliving your set to be honest! You really helped make it the best day ever, thank you! Nick & David xx More...
The amazing Distance performed at our wedding in sunny Swansea on 23.08.19. This duo are without doubt incredibly talented and absolutely worth every penny! They got the party started on the introduction of their first song!! Their set list was spot on and the whole dance floor didn’t stop all night!! EVERYONE has commented on how amazing the band were, which says it all! Thank you so much Sophie and Matt for giving us an unforgettable wedding night!!!! If anyone is getting married any time soon, BOOK THE DISTANCE!!!!!! They will not disappoint!!!!!! More...

Soph and Matt performed at out 25th Anniversary party - they are absolutely fabulous perfect for wedding anniversary or party’s we will definitely use them again! highly recommended
Highly recommend! You have to listen to them because words are not sufficient to describe how good they are!
Very talented artist. Great music! Super friendly!
The Distance played at our wedding 2 years ago and we couldn’t have asked for a more professional, unique and talented duo! Their set was just phenomenal from start to finish, we still have guests commenting on how much they enjoyed their music. The dance floor was full from start to finish and even those who didn’t dance enjoyed listening from the sidelines! Love these guys, highly recommended! More...
Such an amazingly talented duo and equally lovely people. Can’t recommend you highly enough! Thank you so much for performing at our wedding
We cannot thank Soph and Matt enough! They were absolutely amazing all day ☺️ they played an acoustic set for our drinks reception and a full on incredible set for our evening reception including our first dance! If I’m completely honest, during our drinks reception I was in such a blur I forgot we’d asked them to play and I thought it was a playlist we’d created with acoustic tracks - that’s how good they were!!! In the evening they got all our guests up and dancing with incredible tracks all played on a loop pedal, simply incredible! Thank you so much and we’re so happy you signed our guestbook too More...
The Distance played at our wedding on 18th April after we booked them 2 years ago! In fact they were pretty much one of the first things we did book. I can’t tell you how excited we were to see them perform at our wedding after years of stalking them on Facebook and YouTube etc and they did not disappoint. They are exceptionally talented and not only do they sound great but they’re fascinating to watch perform too. Sophie was always on hand via email to answer any questions we had and it was such a pleasure to finally meet. There was always someone on the dance floor and all of our guests have said how fantastic they were. They performed our first dance song of ‘How long will I love you’ and it brings happy tears to my eyes when I think back to that magical moment. We will be forever grateful to you Sophie and Matt and I really hope we have the chance to see you perform again. We would highly recommend you guys in a heartbeat More...
My husband and I searched for such a long time to find a perfect band for our wedding and when we found The Distance we just knew they were exactly what we wanted for our evening celebration! And what a celebration we had! Matt & Soph are sooo talented! We had SO much fun, I didn’t leave the dance floor! We absolutely loved their sets, the energy they brought and our guests raved about them! Thank you so much for being a part of our day! You guys rock! xxx More...
Very professional performers :)
Catchy.. happy times... beautiful sounds!

The Distance performed at our wedding last night. They were absolutely wonderful. They even performed a song my Dad wrote for us as a surprise, which had me in pieces. Thanks so much Sophie and Matt, couldn't have asked for more from a wedding band ❤ More...
�����Soph & Matt, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for absolutely rocking our wedding day on the 5th May. We can’t thank you enough for how easy you made the whole process, from the afternoon acoustic session to the early evening kids dancing to the late night more raucous set- and ALL the twirling I did, we absolutely loved every minute. Most of the feedback we’ve had from the wedding is around “wow, the band!”. We’re so glad we found you via the magic of the internet and wouldn’t hesitate to wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone. Having you play our (very lengthy!) playlist also worked a treat. What a lovely couple you are, so happy you were part of our big day THANK YOU!!! ���� Sarah & Leigh (Mr & Mrs Thompson) Xxx Ps I’m very impressed you didn’t even raise an eyebrow at my end of the night meltdown about the keys � More...
sounds great really liked it. could be a chart hit I reckon
Love the sound and concept; look forward to hearing more

Not to mention you are both lovely lovely people � we felt like we’d known you for years! Thank you so much! Lots of love Rachel (Mrs Moye) � xxxx More...
Sophie and Matt...what can I say? Totally awesome music for our daughter, Rachel's, wedding yesterday. You are both so versatile that we could have listened longer. I hope you know the impact your music made and the contribution it gave to the incredible atmosphere of the whole day. Totally dismayed I didn't get to say goodbye so here are the xxxx and hugs I didn't get to give you. Have an amazing summer. Mel ( Rachel's Mum) More...

All our friends and family have commented on how fantastic you were and what a fab time they had dancing the night away! More...
Ross Alexander Muir
As a wedding photographer, I see a lot of bands. The Distance literally blew my mind. 2 extremely talented people playing live music you would normally need 12 members to perform live. Not only are they amazing musicians, wait till you hear their vocal talents! Absolutely amazing! Highly recommended :) More...
Wow wow wow!! Matt and Soph you were truly magical... from start to finish you were amazing and we loved listening to you throughout the day!

Fantastic, was fab meeting you today, would highly recommend you guys �
Amazing artists! I would definitely recommend them for any event!! X
Sophie and Matt performed at our wedding. I knew they were good, they'd been recommended by a friend... but they far exceeded my expectations. They were brilliant! Their song selection was superb. We had kids and grandparents dancing and the dance floor was never empty. But one thing that is particularly special about these two is watching them construct a song, it's mesmerising. Ooka katcha ooka katcha! Highly recommended!!! Thanks guys! :D More...
These guys are so talented! It was such a pleasure to watch them perform at my best friends wedding. I wish I had known about them when I got married.
David Lee Jones
Worked alongside The Distance on Saturday Night at M.O.S.I. and I was soo impressed. Friendly and happy to work with a DJ (You' be surprised by the amount who are not) .It makes both our live easier meaning the client get's the benefit. Playing different songs, differently, to pretty much every other band out there. I really enjoyed their song choice as well as how they incorporated them in to their syle. Great, both their sets. B-| Having played along side many bands over the years I really can whole heartily recommend The Distance, it was a real pleasure and I look forward to working with you at some point again in the future. All the best. David. David Lee Events. More...
Amazing music and Amazing People would highly recommend!
Yvonne Wallace Blane
Sophie’s voice—the percussion, and the obvious love and passion for their music.
I have recently had the luxury of connecting with Sophie and I have to say she is helpful, considerate and makes you feel like the entire process is going to run super smooth. If I could, I'd give her a 6th star! More...
Thank you again for last weekend, you blew everyone away. Jess & Martin x
The Distance played for our wedding June 2016 and were absolutely brilliant, really creative with loop pedals to create a really big sound for two people. Got people up dancing, played a wide range could not recommend enough! More...
Soph & Matt played for our wedding in September and were absolutely fantastic! Not only did they include songs we had requested for the playlist but knew how to play perfectly for the crowd. All guests loved them, from our 5 year old cousins and friends in their twenties to parents and my 80 year old nan-in-law. The dance floor was never empty - I can testify that all dancers never stopped moving. I want to thank Soph & Matt for making our wedding reception, it was truly amazing and guests are still talking about them nearly 3 months on. An awesome wedding band! More...
Watching these two perform is something else! Hearing a track being built whist watching Soph and Mat do their thing is somewhere between mesmerising and exhausting. The best wedding band I've worked with in a long time! More...
The Distance played for us at our wedding at the end of September and were absolutely amazing! Perfect acoustic set to play us down the aisle and throughout the drinks reception and they ramped it up for a great evening set. They played above and beyond what we were expecting, absolute troopers playing for so long. They even learnt our first dance for us, and pulled it off without a hitch, sounded so good! We had so many comments about how good the band were and would not hesitate to recommend. The loop pedals are brilliant as you try and work out what the next song would be! Soph and Mat are absolutely lovely too, there they were at midnight thanking us when it is us who cannot say thank you enough for making our wedding day so entertaining. More...
Me and Andy are so so glad we had these guys play at our wedding last week. They exceeded all of our expectations. We listened to a lot of their performances on their Facebook page, and had never heard them live until the big day. They were so much better. Not only that, all of our guests have raved about them, saying how fantastic they were, and it was great to see everyone up dancing to them. They blew everyone away! Soph and Mat are genuinely the most wonderful people too. It was a pleasure to have them help celebrate our big day. Xx More...
Best music I’ve ever known at a wedding! Amazing band!
Sophie and Matt, played our wedding on Saturday 16th September. They did an amazing job and everyone say's how great the band was. Many many thanks
We are sooo glad we choose this amazing couple for our wedding reception in august. Mat and sophie you were brilliant we and our guests had so much fun. Such lovely people too. Preformed our first dance song perfectly with only a couple of weeks notice. The time and effort you 2 put in really shows when you preform. Now we are trying to think of another excuse to have you preform again � More...
Sophie and Matt performed at our wedding party last night. They provided a professional service from the moment we first contacted them. Their performance was excellent and they did a great job getting people up to dance. Everyone commented on how great the music was. If you're thinking of booking The Distance, do it before someone gets in there first! More...
Sophie and Mat played at our wedding on the 10th August. We can't recommend them enough! It was the first time they had played at our venue but they set up without any problems and provided us with music for the ceremony, drinks reception and evening. Their song choices were fab and all our guests commented on how brilliant they were! Wish we could do it all over again. Thank you so much guys x More...
The distance played at our wedding at the beginning of August and were absolutely amazing. They played at our drinks reception and did a set in the evening too and it was fantastic. From initial enquiry, Sophie and Matt were brilliant, answering all our questions and responding quickly. The day was absolutely perfect and we have Sophie and Matt to thank as entertainment/music is a huge part of that. Our dance floor was never empty. People commented on how great the distance were and we would not hesitate to recommend to anybody!! You will not regret it xx thanks again Sophie and Matt!! Xx More...
Hi All, if any of you out there are looking for a phenomenal live act, get Soph and Mat booked. The Distance performed at our wedding last week at Tunnels Beaches, Ilfracombe, Devon. Amazing!! Sound fantastic, great voices and do all sorts of crazy stuff with instruments, looping pedals and what not, super talented. Our guests absolutely loved them! Set lists were spot on too and played perfectly to our mix of guests, keeping the dance floor filled all night. Fabulous. Thanks so much again, Reena & Sam (Mr & Mrs Owen!) xx More...
"The Distance" was our daughters first choice of band for her wedding after she had heard we enjoyed their performance at my cousins birthday party a few years ago in Yorkshire. We had the pleasure of seeing them in Somerset. They will travel anywhere! Laura and Darren chose a playlist which Sophie & Matt used. The lightening system they now use is beautiful. Their sound system and use of instruments are amazing!! The covers are excellent. As for their voices - unique and powerful is how we would describe them. They are a great team & work so well together. We would highly recommend Sophie & Matt; they are awesome and they made Laura and Darren's wedding very special. We couldn't have wished for anyone better to sing and perform at such a special place on such a special day. Perfect. Well done and thank you so much Sophie & Matt. You guys are amazing!! x�����x More...
The Distance played at our wedding and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They were a pleasure to deal with beforehand and they wowed everyone on the day, they really got the party going and I had so many people asking where I found them. They were lovely people to have around, all I need now is another excuse to book them! Don't hesitate get them booked!! Thankyou xxx More...
The Distance played at my daughter's wedding on the 5th August. They are, quite simply, Brilliant! The set they performed had absolutely everyone on the dance flood (including an octogenarian aunt who hasn't danced for years). Don't hesitate folks, just book them you won't regret it. More...
Played our wedding last night and were fantastic! Could not have hoped for better, and Soph & Matt are just lovely people. Totally professional, fantastic musicians and made our evening. More...
The Distance played for our wedding on the 16th of July. They arrived and set up very quickly and they are very accommodating, we were running behind due to timing and we still had our speeches to do, so I had to ask for them if they could play later than we expected. They even did our first dance well, we asked if they could play a song named She by We The Kings and we weren't sure if they were going to know it, but they played it so well! They played the music so well and it entertained our guests so well, The Distance made our day perfect! More...
Sophie and Mat played at our wedding ceremony and reception in July and they were absolutely fantastic! All of our guests have commented on how brilliant they were and people will definitely be recommending them! Derek and I can't thank you enough for making our day perfect! You really helped create the atmosphere and it was far better than we could have ever imagined. You had everyone up dancing and it was a great party! From first talking to you, to the finalising of plans, the process was easy, you did exactly what we asked/wanted and we couldn't have picked anyone better to play at our wedding! Thank you guys, you were awesome!!! Xx More...
Soph and Mat played at our wedding reception in June and were fantastic. They were exactly what we were looking for as we wanted an acoustic band who could also get the party going! The communication from start to finish with Sophie was outstanding and they learned our first dance from scratch which was actually two songs rolled into one, but nothing was too much trouble. The result was magical and so unique and we will remember it forever. I'd highly recommend The Distance to anyone as they are so talented and created the perfect atmosphere for us at our wedding. Thanks so much Sophie and Mat we hope to see you playing again sometime in the future! Love Mr and Mrs Stead x More...
The Distance were fantastic! They played at our wedding reception a few weeks ago, and really got the party going & kept us all entertained & dancing all night. Sophie & Matt are lovely, professional & very hard working people, and it was an absolute pleasure to meet them both. We had so many great comments & lovely feedback from our guests about The Distance, we would certainly book them again! That said we wish we could do it all over again!! Thank you Sophie & Matt. More...
This group played at our sons wedding last night and they were fantastic. Everyone I spoke to commented on how good they were. The music was varied and great and I would have no hesitation in recommending them. A very talented couple, many thanks for a great evenings entertainment. More...
Sophie and Mat played at our wedding last weekend and they were incredible! They'd learnt our first dance song especially, the dance floor was full throughout and they just seemed to be having so much fun it was great. Such a fun and varied repertoire, there was definitely something for everyone. We'd definitely hire them again and recommend them to anyone in the area looking for a fun, professional and original band. Thanks so much both of you - you were fantastic xx More...
An amazing duo, highly recommend. The distance played at our wedding and they were brilliant, just what we were looking for. They played our first dance live and it was perfect. All our guests were up dancing and the music variety played was suited to everyone. Thanks again! More...
The Distance played at our Year 11 Prom for Plume, Maldon's Community Academy at Hylands House on the 28th June 2017. From start to finish the level of communication in organising and assisting me to understand the process of having a band at the prom had been asbolutely superb. Sofiee kept up a consistent and high level of communication that made the whole process of booking and organising a band extremely stress free! It was then followed up by an absolutely amazing, five star performance for two hours at the Year 11 prom. A group of 230 sixteen year olds, are never easy to please but I can simply say that every single student responded with an amazing response of how great the band were. Our staff and students were blown away by the quality of delivery, the superb performance given for two hours and how incredibly professional the band were. I cannot thank you enough and I hope that we can use the Distance again for other events and Academy evenings. Thank you for being so amazing! Ash Stoneman (Head of Year 11 at Plume, Maldon's Community Academy) More...
The Distance played at our wedding reception on the 9th June 2017 at The Crab and Lobster. Soph and Mat are amazing, talented and really professional. I was a bit nervous that there might not be that many people dancing as it was a small wedding of 32, but I was so wrong!! Their last song of the night everyone was up dancing and singing their hearts out, I felt like I was in a movie, everything was perfect and Soph and Mat helped to make it that way! I would love to have another party just so I could book you guys again!! Everyone commented on how fabulous you were! Would totally recommend to anyone looking for professional, note perfect very very talented musicians! Oh and on a more personal note, really lovely people! More...
Sophie and Matt played at our Scouts charity event for Derian House Children's Hospice on the 23rd June. They were absolutely fantastic and created a great buzz as part of a really good night. We couldn't believe the sound they create with just the 2 of them! They are both very friendly and the whole process from booking through to the night itself was completely hassle free. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending them and we will definitely use them for any events we organise in the future. Thanks again guys :) More...
Sophie and Matt were amazing and I cannot recommend them enough. They made our wedding day extra special and everyone that came loved them. It was a pleasure to have them at our wedding, such lovely people. XxX More...
Gemma Louise Ainsley
The Distance played at our wedding on the 20 May 2017, at Tros Yr Afon, Isle of Anglesey, Wales. Sophie and Mat performed during our ceremony, reception drinks and also the evening entertainment too. We absolutely loved you guys… from start to finish, you were amazing. You are both massively talented musicians, super warm and friendly – thank you for celebrating with us and making our little Anglesey wedding adventure extra special and heaps of fun. Also a huge thank you for learning the Jurassic Park theme to walk down the aisle… that is something we’ll never forget, nor the dancing T-Rex! Thank you so very much! Mr + Mrs Ainsley x More...
Awesome band! Such talented musicians and read the crowd so well. Enhanced an already spectacular day!

Had the pleasure of watching these guys perform a mammoth 8 hour set at a recent wedding fayre and was blown away by how good they are, brilliant renditions of all the popular wedding songs, and did that cool foot pedal loopy thing that baffles me but sounds ace!
Had the pleasure of listening to Sophie and Matt at our Wedstival and they were GREAT, playing good tunes in their own way, loved it :)
Katie J Barker
The Distance played at the Posh Frocks and Wellies 'Wedstival' Open Day and blew absolutely everyone away! They were sensational! A really lovely couple who's music brought smiles to everyone's faces even on the rainiest and greyest of days! Both Sophie and Matt are incredibly talented, their eclectic mix of songs performed with a 'The Distance' spin brought old classics back to life! I very much hope to see them perform again! � More...
We absolutely loved Sophie and Matt's performance at our evening wedding reception on 24th March 2017 at Lancashire Manor Hotel. They played our song 'Ho Hey' by the Lumineers for our first dance and it was excellent! Everything was smooth - booking, payment and the big event, and what a lovely, friendly couple as well! So many people have told us how much they enjoyed our reception and Sophie and Matt helped to make it the best day of our lives! Thank you guys! Xxx More...
We booked The Distance after seeing their videos and were really looking forward to them playing at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception. The videos were good, but they were even better and absolutely amazing in person...we were so impressed with how fantastic they were. They really made our day special and covered our song choices just perfectly. I really can't thank them again for making our day perfect. More...
The Distance performed at our wedding in Leasowe Castle on the 29th Dec - they were amazing! It was fantastic being able to dance to our first song (Thinking out loud) with a live band! They even learnt a new song (a 5ive song - husband is a fan, not me!!!) and performed it very well. Beforehand there was lots of communication from Sophie so they knew exactly what we wanted on the night... thanks again!!! More...
Just checked out these guys on their website...quality through and through. Shows they mean business ! Check out the vids guys ����
The Distance played at our wedding on 4th June 16. They were fantastic. Played acoustically during the day after the wedding breakfast then again all evening for the party. From the first dance (they did a special version for us) everyone was up dancing and the floor was full all night. Absolutely fantastic and made our wedding. Highly recommend this band and Sophie and Matt travelled all the way to Scotland for us. Very talented couple. More...
We booked Sophie and Matt for our wedding on 28th December and they were incredible!! We had a song in mind for our first dance that me and my wife both like and when the guys told us they would quite happily play/sing it for us we were so happy. They played all our requests and had everyone at the wedding dancing/singing along. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart :) You guys are awesome!! More...
I booked Sophie and Matt as a surprise band for my husband Marks 40th birthday. From my first enquiry through to their performance on the night not only were they quick to respond and a pleasure to liaise with; they did everything I requested, set up on time, kept it all secret and most importantly were absolutely brilliant with all the songs the played. We all loved every minute of it and lots of dancing was done. Added bonus is they are both lovely people. Thx guys x More...

We would like to thank Sophie + Matt for performing at our wedding. We asked if it was possible to sing our 1st dance song which was- Yours by Ella Henderson.

Honestly the best decision we made for the wedding! Wishing you all the best and thank you again so much! Mrs Nicholson ;) x More...
Saw these two young talented things at a Wedding yesterday in Ripon and loved their performance(s).

Excellent very good! Had a great sing & dance at Katie & Greigs wedding!
Spent the weekend with these fabulous people ! Their music was brilliant ! Highly recommended xx
We booked the distance for several shows at Shaw Hill golf and spa hotel for Christmas 2015. What a fantastic group! The guests loved them the energy was amazing and songs out of this world they obviously spent time putting together a solid song to ensure a wide ranging audience was kept entertained. We look forward to welcoming them back again sometime. Michelle More...
Came across these guys by accident when visiting the Nant hall. Absolutely incredible. Brilliant variety of acoustic songs that blew us away so much we had to ask the bar staff for their name. Very talented!
Finally got round to reviewing The Distance (sorry Sophie)! :) We had them play at our wedding breakfast and into the night ending with a party set at our Village Fete wedding! I can without a doubt say that everyone loves The Distance so much and myself and Chris are so happy to have stumbled across them when planning our wedding. They played an acoustic set throughout our wedding breakfast which was amazing, people didn't notice they were even there, which is the feel we wanted really, but later on into the night, the prosecco was flowing and away we went. I don't think I stopped dancing all night! They even mashed up a song for our first dance which supirised everyone! Such a good day and Matt & Sophie were the best!!! They had no hassle and just Walt with everything in the background like true pros! We loved every bit of it and we loved them! Such amazing entertainers and lovely people! Can we do it all again sometime?! :) More...
The Distance played at our wedding in November 2015 and they were simply great! They are so versatile - beautiful acoustic songs in the ceremony & drinks reception, then they filled the floor through the night with their sets and dj service. The complete package! Great customer service, quick replies and took on board all our set list suggestions. Our guests were asking us all night where we found them & saying how good they were. What you see is what you get, you won't be disappointed. Thank you so much x More...
Great duo! Had the pleasure of working alongside them at Christmas Parties. Their slower set during the meal was perfect and very well received followed by a terrific performance to get the party started that packed the dancefloor throughout. Thoroughly recommended for parties and weddings. Professional, passionate and energetic! More...
Hi Sophie and Matt.Just wanted to say an absolutely enormous thank you for performing at my 50th last night.You were both superb and everyone in the room was raving about your musical brilliance-I have no doubt that you are both destined for well deserved great things and I really look forward to having the opportunity of seeing you again live-hopefully in the not too distant future.

My husband and I booked the distance to perform at our wedding on the 20th June 2015 and we were so pleased that we did! They were absolutely amazing and had our guests up dancing all night!

Thank you very much! :)
The Distance played at a surprise 60th birthday party for my husband last Saturday 16th August, in a country pub in North Yorkshire. It was a fantastic night, thanks to the great sound of these guys. They will be my first choice again, and all my guests at the party said they loved them. A very hard working and professional duo. Excellent communication before the event. You will not be disappointed.....what a great night we had....one to remember!! More...
Fabulous duo, excellent music, if my arthritis wasn't so bad, would have been dancing all day today at Hollyhedge park. Lovely people as well. Loved u guys. xxx
Usually pop / rock duo's are quite predictable . The Distance are far from a run of the mill duo........Strong vocals with tight harmonies.....Great stage presence..........Excellent rapport with the audience,and one of their many strengths is, that they don't just attempt difficult songs .....They NAIL THEM .......Todays performance was at a busy fun day with lots of other distractions such as funfairs and police sirens going off ........Their profesionism shone through and they performed two ' note perfect' sets in difficult conditions .............FIVE WELL EARNED STARS........ More...
Breathtaking vocals, and amazing performers all round. They really made our wedding evening even more fantastic and special. Starting with some slow songs for our first dance together, then moving on to the faster, party anthems as the drinks were flowing and the guests were all up dancing. The Distance can do it all. Absolutely amazing! More...
Absolutely amazing artists. We booked them for a club fundraising event evening, and they were superb all night. Great music, with something for all ages to enjoy in their performance. We will be booking again, and definitely recommend to anyone. More...
A little late in posting this I know, but I've been struggling to find the correct words to describe the kind of night The Distance provide, anyway here goes .... Lights are down, a chord strikes up ..... and .... It's Party Time ! From begining to end, (and we never want it to end), the hits keep coming, slow meaningful lyrics fuse into raucous party anthems, back to soul infused, gotta get up and shuffle, classics from our youth, forward towards chart hits of the day with guitar strings trembling and wonderful voices filling the room. This couple give a show ! Oh and did I mention they actually enjoy seeing folk enjoy themselves and are not afraid to enjoy the evening themselves ..... well I have now .... Do yourselves a favour, get The Distance ..... All the way ! xxx P.S Not enough Stars ! More...
The distance are amazeballs❤️:P
From the videos I've seen - they look good and sound great too - with some nice creativity and fun moments put into the videos - well done - keep up the good work!
The distance played at our BBQ on 2nd of August and were absolutely fantastic I would recommend anybody to have them for a really good night.
We're hired these guys for a corporate event, exellent harmonies, good guitar work and a varied reportoir and something for everyone. Plus they are both nice people and Sophie knows how to wear a little dress:-)) lol, hope to see them again soon More...
Cora Jane Hansen

Sophie and matt played at our wedding yesterday. They were absolutely amazing. A lot of people thought they were a recording at first as the singing and live sound quality was so good. They read the crowd and the moment so perfectly. They were a joy to work with and all the organisation before hand and their preparation was spot on. Wondered how everyone previously has given you 5 stars and now we know! Thank you for being a part of the best day of our lives xxx More...

Just been recommended to hear this band and they are absolutely brilliant. Very talented people.
We had Matt and Sophie, ie The Distance as the evening entertainment at our wedding in August 2013. They started there performance and from the beginning up until the end they were absolutely fantastic!! We could not have had a better band than The Distance and hope to see them again in the future at some point. Our guests are still commenting now on how brilliant they were :) If anyone was wondering whether to book these then i would not hesitate in saying that you will not find anybody better!!!absolutely brilliant Steve and Adele Knott More...
Thought you guys were fab last night. Great set, great harmonies!
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!!! More...
