Fantastic band, great sound, dance moves and fantastic vocals make for a brilliant show - professional and lovely in every way - couldn't recommend more highly. Looking forward to seeing them again!
The string quartet provided an excellent backdrop to our special day. All our friends remarked how good it was to hear a live string quartet. Several were guessing the modern songs played with a classical arrangement thinking 'now I know this one - but what is it?' All our music requests were met beautifully and the quartet added something extra to a fantastic day.
"Thank you to you and the rest of the band for such a fantastic set of music on Saturday. You guys are absolutely fantastic and we totally loved it!!!! As did all of our guests. So many people were asking how we found you and if they could have your contact details - Thank you so much!" Lauren & Mitch,
