Hello there Nick, I’d go on saying a lot about this band but to summarize everything, they were nothing short of fantastic. While this wasn’t a big party (a 50th birthday can be difficult to overwhelm), the Festival Sons pitched everything up and were spot on. I remark their choice of songs, how they played and sang and their unique sound. Everyone was into it to a point that the band chose to play extra songs at the end. It was a cracking evening made brilliant. If they continue giving such performances, then many will join me in giving them positive recommendations. My sincere gratitude is to you and them for such a great performance.
An amazing gig form an amazing versatile talented solo vocalist, the whole pub was up and rocking with encore after encore. She introduced the lead guitarist from her band to accompany her for 5 or 6 songs truly unbelievable. It was her first gig at this venue, guess what she has been invited back.
• The guys did the whole night for us – acoustic sets, party band and just as you thought it couldn’t get any better the DJing with live guitar and singing made everyone feel amazing – I would recommend this band to the hills! Hannah & Simon,
