We have had a lot of different bands here over the years but nothing in the same league as Illicit. Their set was so varied that people were dancing all night long.
— Heybridge Swifts
The thing about Illicit that sets them out from the rest is the variety of material they play. As well as how they play it. If it is hard rock they rock it hard, if it is reggae they get into a reggae groove in a heartbeat. This pretty much makes them the ultimate party band.

Fantastic band so worth it!
We booked Illicit to play at our wedding and they really did not let us down at all. Everyone said they were brilliant and everyone was dancing the night away. A lot of people were asking for songs and band did all they could to make it a brilliant night. Including playing for extra time and even getting us up to sing with them! Brilliant band brilliant night

The best i have seen
This band was recommended to me by my local pub where they had played and the landlord said they were the best he had ever seen. I booked them to play at my summer party and whilst i had talked with the band and asked them to learn material specifically for the event ( a lot of the songs they already knew.) I must admit i did not expect them to put on such a show! The band have a great lightshow and are completely self sufficient and tried not to have to ask too many questions whilst setting up etc. They are true professionals and conduct themselves really well both on stage and off. The stage antics are entertaining in themselves! The band literally went out into the audience and played which makes for a great atmosphere. Great band, great night thank you so much.
