What event planners say about our suppliers


This band are fantastic! They played at the RAF Northolt Bierkeller and were brilliant. So flexible to our needs and put so much energy in to the night. Great music, dancing and games, thank you!


Were a bit late, but worth waiting for!


Blag were really exactly what we were looking for! I don't live in London so I was nervous about choosing a band I hadn't heard play, but they sounded great online, and I spoke to Michael over the phone and on email about the type of party we were having and the music we wanted. Most importantly they played brilliantly on the night, everyone was up out their seats for a good knees up and we were guided round the dances that we didn't know. All the guests were happy. Would definitely recommend!
