The band was really fantastic! The venue where the event was held had some electrical problems. But they said the band 8 Balls will be helpful. Indeed they were and sorted the issues with no problem and very easily. All the people over there were giving a lot of compliments and also asked us where we found this amazing band.
Many, many thanks for playing at our wedding, having heard you play before at a friend's wedding we knew that you'd be excellent and have everyone up on the dance floor, we weren't disappointed. Lots of people have commented as to how good you were, and the staff at the Homeward Park Hotel said you were the best band to play there in a long time. We'd be happy to recommend you to anyone.
