Thanks a lot lads. I deeply appreciate everything you did for us on Saturday. You made the wedding great and I’m so sorry I never got to say this in person before you left. It was a crazy manic evening. The guests loved everything I guess with so many compliments on how you sing. This was so much talent and character that you added to out event. Thanks again for your love and humility.
Blag were absolutely brilliant and exactly what we were after. This was a big corporate party for a young audience and they were fun and a modern take on a ceilidh band. I highly recommend them for any event as they would be great regardless of audience.
The Martinis were the headline performers at Spires' 25th Anniversary Fundraiser and they absolutely blew us away. They were such a great bunch of performers and really topped off the night for us. They were also very flexible and accommodating, and always quick to respond to any questions we had.
