Here are a some reviews we have received from various people who have seen the band.
PEMBROKE COLLEGE, OXFORD UNIVERSITY, Oxfordshire
Thanks for such a great performance guys! Between rushing around organizing things I wondered into the main marquee to find 200 people jumping around to Message in a bottle! You really set the night alive and your efforts were greatly appreciated by all 1000 guests and the Ball Committee.

Just a quick note to pass on a big thanks to the band for two great sets at our wedding. You were the icing in the cake for us as everyone was on the dancefloor having a great time. Everyone weve spoken to since keeps saying "where did you get the band" and commenting on what a fantastic sound you guys made. So thanks again for a great night. cheers Andy & Christie

Neil & Tracy Lloyd - Erdington Charity Event, Birmingham, West Midlands
I would just like to say a huge thank you to the Texan Peacocks for making this charity night a special one. With thier help we manange to raise in excess of £3200 for our local hospice which makes me and my family very proud. Everybody that i spoke to on the night said that they had a great time and enjoyed the music that was being played and with them not charging us a single penny kept our outgoing down to the bare minimum. Once again thank you guys....neil and tracy lloyd and all our family
Steve & Tor - Wedding - Stratford Upon Avon Town Hall, WARWICKSHIRE

Chris & Michelle Renton - Wedding - Albrighton Hall, Shrewsbury, Shropshire
Just got back from our honeymoon and we were thinking about our special day. The memorable moments were the ones where our friends and family, as well as us, were rocking the night away with the superb Texan Peacocks. We could not have asked for a better bunch of people and such a fantastic sounding band that played a great mix of rock songs. See their playlist! We have no hesitation in recommending them for any occasion and if anyone is thinking about booking, dont ponder, just do it! If you need confirmation, just send the band a request for my contact details and i will send you a list of my wedding guests and ask anyone of them! Texan Peacocks made our day special. Thanks guys.
Danny & Sarahs Wedding - Eastwood Hall, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire
First of all my wife and I owe a massive apology to the band for such a late review, I guess we must put it down to new married life ;-) Where do we begin.OH MY GOD! I was lucky enough to have seen the band at a gig before hand and I knew instantly I wanted them for our wedding, and boy we were not disappointed. If you have never heard/seen/listened to the Texan Peacocks before you need to get off your backsides now and make the effort! ALL of our guests at our wedding are STILL raving how good they were, the energy, the music and it is plain to see how much they love what they do, it come across in the performance with abundance! Tex the lead singer is amazing the passion he put in got everyone in on the dance floor from start to finish! At one point he was on his back, legs in the air singing his heart out... MINT! The most special part of the night was the awesome performance of The Killers -Mr Brightside which is both our favourite record, it was that good we demanded it again for a finale and it will forever bring back such great memories! To finish we want to wish the band every success in the future they deserve every bit of it, and I tell all of you if they are ever in your area and want a great night out or you need an amazing band for your wedding/function/party or whatever then look no further! To put it bluntly. YOU GUYS ROCK!
Lots of love Danny & Sarah Minns x
Fiona Rae - Cox's Yard, WARWICKSHIRE
Stratford on a damp autumn evening..long week at work... ended up in small venue with a crowd made up people of all ages moshing to one of the best cover bands Ive ever seen. Fantastic! There is something that sets Texan Peacocks aside from other cover bands. They do songs they love with passion and an uncanny precision; Rolling Stones, XTC, Blondie, The Smiths, Undertones, Kaiser Chiefs... Frontman, Tex, leads the band with tongue firmly in cheek and with a panache that makes the songs on the Texan Peacocks set list seem like their own rather than an array of covers from the last 40 years. Book em for sure!!
Longbarn Village Festival, ALcester, WARWICKSHIRE
How do you end a perfect day? with the Texan Peacocks as your headlining band! fans crowded longbarn to support the local band fest this weekend with enthusiam that just didnt end and being rewarded with a number of encores. if you thought they couldnt get any better just go see them again and if you havent seen them before shame on you but go quick because you are missing out!!!!! thanks for a truly great night
Neil & Merissa Sheppard - Adcote School For Girls - Shrewsbury, SHropshire
Thankyou So Much!!!! A fantastic night! U guys were very professional, music was brilliant, & everyone loved you! I Would recommend u in a second! Nice meeting you all, best wishes & regards Neil & Merissa
Mick & Ally Millington - Moxhull Hall - Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, West Midlands
Firstly may I offer my sincere apologies for not getting in touch sooner I can only put this down to pressures of work and life in general and other such bullshit reasons etc etc...
I am hoping you can remember back to June because I have to say we had the most magical fun filled wedding day possible and part of what makes the memory special is you guys !! you were the absolute dogs bo***cks !!
It is said that there are always two memorable things with regards to weddings, the Food and the Music ?? It appears everybody loved the food (I know I did ) and the music totally brilliant. You cannot beat live music especially great live music and we had both.
Please pass on our heartfelt thanks to all the band and support for helping to make our day one we will always think about and smile

Alcester Street Market, ALcester, WARWICKSHIRE
This band you must see Iive, I have seen these guys 3 times and they have been excellent on everyoccasion. Top drawer classic songs played with such zeal and enthusiasm you'd think the band had written them themselves. (In fact, one song they have.. Control Freak.. a great rock pop song.) Not many bands can inject genuine energy into other peoples material but the Peacocks do this, with style. Classics from the 60s and 70s sound lively and fresh, (one punter said to me they play Police songs better than the Police did!) and newer chart songs too are played with zest and panache .The musicianship of the band is superb and frontman Tex's vocals are quite stunning, his pitch perfect delivery enhancing every song. His range of styles from Sting to Liam Gallagher to Morrisey, and more.. is remarkable. Top solid drumming, warm driving bass, super harmonies and percussion; and rip-snorting guiter playing from the other four guys certainly complete the brilliant Peacocks sound. The packed audience in last Sundays blisteringly hot afternoon open air gig at Alcester would definitly testify to that! The jokes and banter in-between the songs are good fun too!! If you're thinking of having a get-together, or party, or whatever; and need live music, book these guys! As a songwriter and musician myself I thoroughly recommend them.

Longbard Village - Charity Gig
Fantastic set, - thoroughly impressed with the music and quality of entertainment provided! - We will be recommending you to others, and will hopefully be booking you for some events in the future. Just a shame we were working on the bar all night and didnt get chance to see fully what was going on!

Brett & Sharron Rice - Billesley Manor, ALcester, WARWICKSHIRE
Wot a top night .. 40th Birthday party. The band rocked the crowd with awesome tunes from all the favorite bands. The age group of the party was 16 - 60 and everyone was happy with covers from The Beatles to The Killers all tunes done to perfection. Thanks again lads for a great night.Brett
Jon Knibb Private Party
I booked the band after hearing from others how good they were. We were delighted with their performance. The quality of sound and lighting effects was excellent. The set list was ideal for any age range who wish to get up and dance. This band are ideal for anyone wanting to be well entertained and I highly recommend them.You need to see them live to appreciate how good they are.
Greig Centre Benefit Night
Thank you to the Texan Peacocks in performing at the benefit night in order to raise money for our charity. Out of the three bands, they played last, brought the house down and got every one dancing - brilliant
Gareth & Zoes Wedding
What can we say........you made our day! You were absolutely amazing, from the first song to the last, and got friends of ours up dancing that have never danced before! We now cant hear the Kaiser Chiefs Predict a Riot or Franz Ferdinand Take me Out without thinking of all our friends going mad on the dancefloor, and Paint it Black was just fantastic! We really cant thank you enough, and will definatley see you again! Im already working on the new hubby to hold a 1st anniversary party, and if we do, it wouldnt be the same if you guys werent there!
Anyone thinking of booking the Texan Peacocks......dont think about it, just do it!
Thanks again. Zoe & Gareth

Deirdre's 60th St Trinian's Bash
Just a quick note to say a big THANK YOU for making my evening so special. The music was fantastic and it got everybody up to dance. You exceeded my expectations! Thanks also for organising the cd's to play after your sets and I am glad you were able to join in my celebrations.
Thanks again for coming all that way and here's to the next party!
Better late than never! We have just seen the video clips from Mum's party and it was really funny. You guys were fantastic! You really got the party going and it wouldn't of been the same without you! Everybody enjoyed themselves and keep raving on about how good you all are. We are all now looking for another excuse to have a party for you to play at.
Thanks again for making Mum's party so special.

Great band, Great tunes, What a show!!!
All guests connected with music from all eras, Dance floor was JUMPIN..!!!
Thanks to The Peacocks for making the day a top 1 with the tunes to make you move, excellent sound and really smooth when setting up. All done really well and with no fuss, a complete success from an empty stage to a rammed floor full of people smiling and laughing. Again many thanks for making this day a one to remember.
Always a fan...And a Best Man for Billy...
Function at the Mother Huff Cap
"The band's stage presence has a vibrant and utterly infectious energy about it that you would be hard pressed to find in most professional bands these days. Their renditions of 'Roxanne' (by the Police) & 'You Really got Me' (by the Kinks) are almost chilling in their accuracy to the originals and along with their version of Roy Orbison's 'Pretty Woman' and the Monkees 'I'm a believer' they succeeded in filling the floor within minutes."

Caz and Stew Brasenell - Wedding
"Brief: play to a crowd of 90+ with diverse music tastes from church choir to teenage grunge, pop princesses to eighties glam rockers, folk to rock classic, classical to soul, punk to motown.
Aim: play 2 sets, ensuring dance floor full, catering to all with age range 12 to 75 and give a bride and groom a night with friends and family to remember.
Texan Peacocks, we salute you! Tough gig?.......brilliant gig! The TP's performed tracks including classic Blondie, The Police, The Stones, The Beatles and a fantastic version of Kylie's 'Can't get you out of my head' (yes, that's right, Kylie!). Highlight of the gig an excellent rendition of Chilli Peppers The Zephyr Song; Bride's all time favourite band, so a great surprise!
Thank-you guys, we couldn't have had a better night, everyone is raving about you. Cheers!
Caz and Stew Brasenell (The Bride and Groom!)."
