What event planners say about our suppliers


…You were AMAZING!!! So many people commented with such words as… Incredible; outstanding; great fun!!!


Hello Ben and Ben, Thank you both SO MUCH for playing at Hydon Hill yesterday evening. As usual the music was perfect - top quality, entertaining, unobtrusive, responsive to the event. We heard lots of complimentary comments. I haven't heard yet how much was raised for the residents' garden and associated projects, but it was clear that Hydon Hill got a lot out of the event and it was great to have the local community involved in helping. Chris and Denise


I was dubious booking before I had heard them properly but was THRILLED with their performance. They made the evening, they were friendly, lively, play every type of music and a proper treat. I would highly recommend them and now have to find an excuse for another party to get them back a second time! Thank you Blag!
