What event planners say about our suppliers


Many thanks to Steve for providing the entertainment for my birthday party. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all. It was a small party for about 40, which included kids. Steve arrived on time, set up and pretty much set the pace for the party. He was funny and very entertaining. Plenty of audience participation. I would 100% recommend him again. A great singer and musician. We had a great time thanks to Steve Roxton.


What a faboulous duo: Plus 1 on the Cajan drum box. When they started playing I was with a friend who is also a very talented musician and was blown away with how good they were. Beautiful voices, very tight and clearly zoned in on their performance. They played a fabulous set of selected music (from there huge set list) and really made eavry song their own, of which some were. Many of our guests said we should have had them playing later as opposed to before, during and after our meal. I thoroughly recommend them for any party or gathering. Ps- Incredibly easy to book and sort out for the gig and Laura is fabulous to work with


We've at last got round to sending you these photographs and thanking you for making our Wedding Day so memorable and complete. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole event, small as it was , your music and presence filled the room with an unforgettable joyous atmosphere. So much so, that now when l hear a string quartet playing on the TV or radio, I'm immediately taken back to our happy day!! I only wish we had taken a video of some of the day to savour for ever!
