What event planners say about our suppliers


Wow great band had everyone dancing, will be seeing them tonight too.. They cover a wide range of songs for all ages. They even did AC/DC VERY WELL . To cover the song they did so well was a great night entrainment for everyone. .. Thank you for a fab show .......


Absolutely fantastic evening! Acoustic Jukebox exceeded all expectations and we actually ended up asking them to play for an extra half an hour as everyone at the pub was up dancing and didn't want the music to end! I will definitely be booking them again to play for us! Such lovely guys as well, professional but also very approachable and played songs upon request which was an added bonus as we weren't expecting them to take requests. Cannot speak highly enough of them!


The Sessions performed at our wedding and were absolutely fantastic. We had excellent communication with them leading up to the event and on the night they performed brilliantly. We had several guests commenting (both to us and them!) that they were such a fantastic band and our dancefloor was packed all night. We only had 8 band members + sound engineer, as this was most applicable to our venue and budget but they we still amazing- you can book them with confidence!
