What event planners say about our suppliers


Our Perransands event last night went off so well! A massive thank you! You all looked real pros, and your voices proved just what pros you truly are. We'd love to come back and experience your tremendous performances again, every best wish for the events you do in the future.


Thanks a lot Kelly and Eric. You seriously made our wedding party into a memorable with an amazing success. They made our garden a really wonderful venue with some amazing lightings all around even up on the trees. It was really magical. They kept each and every guest entertained and made sure that everyone is having a great time. The performance by them was really amazing and everyone loved it thoroughly. They have a great voice as well as the music was amazing and it was a proper mixture of the music from all ages.


Excellent performance. Lots of energy. Excellent performance. Lots of energy. They instinctively knew what songs to play to get the crowd going and keep the party pumping. The dancefloor was busy all night long. Really friendly and polite. Looked great too. They were brilliant, so I'd say worth the money! We may have managed to get a band for a few hundred pounds less but I doubt they'd have been so good!!
