We would say that though ... so why not check us out, all of our forthcoming gigs are listed on here along with video footage and personal recommends. Our songs have been chosen to entertain the audience rather than being personal favourites and have been proven over the last 6 years. Our sets are bespoke to the occasion and for your special day we will always do our best to prepare particular favourites for you.
We understand that hosting an event is expensive we won't add to that by charging the earth, however we will guarantee our undivided support toward making it perfect.

If you need a band and you can find us we can definitely help - why not hire D-State.

We hired D-State for our wedding after we’d seen them playing locally and really loved their music, and wow are we glad we did. From start to finish they were absolutely fantastic, the music was brilliant and ALL our guests commented on how great they were, even our older guests who didn’t want to dance just enjoyed listening to them. I had secretly asked them if they could perform a song from me to my now ‘husband’, and Dan delivered this to perfection. Words can’t express how grateful I was to Gary, Dan and the rest of the crew for this.

Apart from this they are genuinely just the nicest people you could meet and we wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

If you’re looking for a band for any occasion then look no further, these guys will deliver.

Thank you so much for making our day even more special xxx

Unbelievable , fantastic experience. The best band in the south, thank you so much for playing on my wedding day. Everyone was so impressed with you and the songs!!! I'll always book you boys now.

Top class night executed excellently by every member of  D-State. Every song played was a classic. Within the first 3 seconds of the first song being played the dance floor was full and remained full all night.

Best band I've seen in years!!! I danced all night last night to loads of my favourite songs played expertly by such nice blokes. Thank you for making us all so happy at our work shindig.

Had a great time listening to the lads this evening. Spent the whole time screaming the words back at them. Absolutely incredible, thanks for a great show.
