Testimonials

I have to say that at every step of the way in organising the evening – from first engaging the band to the end of the night – you were a pleasure to deal with. Your warmth, professionalism, willingness to help in any way was fantastic. Then, there was the music – Borderland were outstanding - you created a great atmosphere and had the place buzzing. I saw people dancing that I’ve never seen on a dance floor before! Thanks so much for your contribution to Chris’s charity event – you helped us raise almost £6000 and gave us a night to remember and we’ll be forever grateful for everything you did.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Borderland for playing at Val's birthday party. We feel it was the band that made the difference and turned a good night into a great night as your enthusiasm is so infectious that everyone just went for it! Many, many thanks

Mick and Val Gallagher ’40th’ birthday party at Little Haven Hotel, South Shields

Borderland played over 2 hours of solid entertainment to a packed room, bringing their flawless AOR set and legion of fans to the Rock of the North for a first rate show. The place was jumping - the extended dance floor was full, and they were dancing in the aisles and on the seats. Always popular, always giving their all, Borderland shows are among the highlights of the year

Dave “Double Decks” Fulton, Buffalo’s Rock Night manager

Borderland we just wanted to send you a note to say thank you so much for the most amazing atmosphere you created for us on our wedding day. The music was fantastic as were you all. We had the most amazing day of our lives so far made even better having you guys play for us. All our love, Gemma and Rob Rayner

I'm often reluctant to book any band at the club without seeing them first however Borderland were heavily recommended and I'm delighted I took a chance on them as they were outstanding - one of the best bands we've had on in a long time and definitely an 'edgy band'!

‘Edgy’ Eddie Scott – Heaton Buffs Club

Kirsty and Gregg Douglas wedding at Doxford Hall, nr Alnwick

As always, Borderland were truly superb which is why the regulars at this club love you. The amount of effort and energy you put into, not just the playing but the whole performance, particularly in the way you encourage the audience to get involved and enjoy themselves is fantastic to see and always results in everyone having a great time. Excellent!

Fenwick Marley, Benwell Hill Cricket Club

Cheers guys for an awesome night once again. Even though we've been to many gigs we will never tire of listening to you guys. Great band, musicians and lads...

I've spent £30+ on tickets to see many well known and famous bands and I have to say many of them were nowhere near as good as Borderland

Matt Clark – guest at Judith Wade’s 30th birthday party at Saltwell Towers, Gateshead

It wasn't just the songs and performance which were excellent but your enthusiasm and willingmess to play on and on for the crowd who were loving every minute of it was so refreshing to see and hugely appreciated. Many thanks

John Defty, Hetton Lyons Cricket Club

Absolutely fantastic lads! I knew from the moment I saw you play at Newcastle Racecourse you'd be perfect for our staff award parties and I'm delighted to say I was right as everyone's had a great time. Thank you so much for agreeing to travel down to play for us - I still can't believe you all have day jobs as the level of quality and professionalism you show is top drawer

The best band I've seen in years, absolutely superb! Great set list, great playing and the singing was exceptional. Thank you for a tremendous night

Tony Willins, St Peters (bottom) Club, Byker

Having played in local bands for many years I'm not easily impressed but Borderland, in my opinion, are the best band on the circuit. A great set list, tight musicianship and the band always look like they're having a great time - superb!

First time I've seen Borderland and you were great and I must add what a brilliant singer Mark is!

Absolutely fantastic lads I definitely picked the right band. You nailed everything but More Than A Feeling and Stevie Wonder's Happy Birthday were incredible! Many, many thanks

Darren Reay after his 40th birthday party, Lumley Castle

Borderland is one of the most professional, accommodating and easiest bands I've ever had the pleasure of booking and I've had some great tributes from people who thoroughly enjoyed the band and their music. Well done lads, many, many thanks.

Dave Ingle, Heworth Golf Club

The Music Zoo team are big fans of Borderland and have nothing but respect for the band. They are a top act and we would certainly recommend you go and see them perform.

Craig, Music Zoo website

Absolutely fantastic - the song selections were brilliant! We've had some great bands on here and, in my opinion, you guys are the best yet. Everyone's thoroughly enjoyed the night.

Neil Henry – Manager, The Poachers Cottage, Callerton

Borderland are a top band who ALWAYS put on a top show. They draw a huge following and the crowd dance away the whole time and you can't help but get caught up in the atmosphere created. They'd make a good choice for a party, with a wide range of material suitable for all ages and tastes. Great bunch of lads too, and chanter Mark has a great voice to compliment the rest of the band.
