What event planners say about our suppliers


Festival Nights band was definitely fantastic and we can never thank them enough. They gave us a fantastic evening and the atmosphere was special. Lee was stunning and wonderful! The entire crew, including the sound engineers, is a bunch of polite, lovely and helpful people. I danced so much the next day I noticed blisters on by feet. Nonetheless, I would recommend the band any day any event and to anyone. Please thank them for me and to Lee who took time to learn the ceremony song.


Thank you so much for a terrific evening's entertainment from Abba ReBjorn on Saturday for my wife's birthday party. I would and have highly recommended the band who were perfect, lovely people very friendly with a great sound and very accommodating. More than happy to get the birthday girl up on stage with them singing 'Dancing Queen' which proved a highlight of the evening. I had a number of enquiries from other guests and I have passed on contact details. The first set was like a concert with many guests enthralled by the performance, sitting on the floor or standing watching. I had not anticpated that kind of reaction at all, while the second set had everyone up and dancing. I couldn't have wished for it to go better and both I and Sue were delighted with the band. Numerous guests have made a point of telling me how impressed they were. Good contact beforehand with Sam and all arrangements agreed well in advance, so everything went smoothly on the night. I think the cost is very good value for a show of this quality. I would certainly re-book the band, should an opportunity arise in the future. Rob and Sue


I can only say that these lads make music that is ear candy for the gods! They have a deliriously fun mash-up of super group energy, whilst achieving a wild and brave new stab at our roots.
