What event planners say about our suppliers


Could not have asked for a better band to play at our wedding. Everyone kept coming up to us saying how great you were and where did we find such a good band! Thank you for making our day a perfect one :)


Hi. Andy was the perfect entertainer for our mum n dad's 50th wedding anniversary. He was professional, friendly and the music he chose to sing was great it created the atmosphere we were looking for. We would definately recommend Andy to others and book him again ourselves.


It seems like a lifetime ago already (how?) but you played at our wedding on 16th Sept at Chiddingstone Castle. We haven’t had a chance to thank you! Especially for our first dance song ‘Perfect’...which you sang/played perfectly. It’s a song that’s very special to us despite being fairly new. It’s even more special now and we can’t you enough for doing it for us. It was beautiful. And we couldn’t have chosen a better band for our amazing day. You obviously have music in your blood and adore what you do. My school friends did me proud and glued themselves to the dance floor whilst everyone else stuck to the bar! Inevitable I guess when the evening is spread into multiple rooms. And the bar is free!! But you were amazing and we can’t wait to watch the video back...the whole day is such a blur! Thank you so much, you’re amazing xx Dave and Rebecca Perrotton, Wedding at Chiddingstone Castle in Kent – 16th September 2017
