a last minute idea for mum who is very difficult to buy for as she doesn't want anything!! However she is going to be 80 and has a life long love of classical music. She is no longer able to get to the symphony hall for concerts. It would be wonderful if we could arrange for some live music even for a short time or on the way to another booking! So this would be at my parents home in lichfield, we call it Cookson HQ. refreshments available from super talented brother. There will be 16 of + two labradours! anyway, thanks for reading this.

Hello, I am planning an involvement event for patients detained in a Nottingham low secure hospital (NHS). One of our event themes is diversity and having looked at your act on the website, we feel it would fit the bill perfectly as you seem to offer a wide range of styles. We are looking to have maybe a 45 minute set, but this is negotiable, to take place mid-afternoon after the main part of the event. Please could you give me an idea of how much this would cost and if you would be available on this day? Many thanks,

Die Dorf Fest Kapelle made my Dad’s 60th Birthday one of my most memorable parties. They were seamless and entertained a group of 70 strong party goers of varying ages. They were really friendly and I wouldn’t think twice about having them back in the future.
The Blags played at our wedding recently in Lichfield, they had travelled up from London especially. We were really impressed with their set and talent. I would highly recommend for an occasion. All our guests commented on how fantastic they sounded. So happy we booked them.
Just wanted to thank the Black Velvet Band for a really great evening last Saturday. They were excellent musicians and the caller was superb (very patient with the Danish contingent who took some time to get the hang of the instructions!) What I particularly appreciate is how considerate and adaptable the band was regarding my wishes. I had lovely time and have had a lot of positive comments from my guests.
