On behalf of my wife and family/friends plus the newly-married couple, daughter Chloe and Luke ... the Lollipops appeared
at their Wedding and were an outright success. Singing for an hour after the long lunch and speeches and before the disco kicked
in, they more than filled a potential 'vaccuum' as the evening guests arrived. The combination of their gorgeous looks, stunning 1950's
dresses, sheer personalities and wonderful music well exceeded our best expectations. Mesmeric, they were, creating a huge 'buzz'
amongst 150+ people of all ages. The children in particular were fascinated by them - dancing away as they were - which in turn attracted
everyone. Arguably the entertainment hit of the day, we'd have been happy for several more hours. And the consistent comments
afterwards could not have been more enthusiastic.
The Lollipops are a highly professional singing trio with a very distinctive sound, look and vibrant personality. They put huge smiles
on all faces at our Wedding and remain one of the most memorable events that day. Highly recommended. And with many thanks.
Andrew Mitchell, Father of the Bride.
So glad to have an opportunity to leave a review for this 100% world class violinist . I met Ray Louise Coyle last night . I was the makeup artist and hairstylist for the host .. I have to say not only is Ray hands down the most talented violinist I have had the pleasure of listening to , but is a complete and utter professional on all levels both in public and behind the scenes. Friendly polite and even kindly without hesitation gave a spare battery to another performer doing led poi who had run out of battery . Rays' performance was jaw dropping and she held an air of pure gratitude and passion throughout , gracefully smiling as she played , acknowledging her audience and drawing us all in subtly thru her pure brilliance of skill . I cannot rate Ray high enough ! 110% recommended for any high class event ! Best of Luck Ray and I will make sure I can witness you perform again .
