What event planners say about our suppliers


Kitty was just brilliant!! As requested Ibiza chill out tunes played and enjoyed by all. I would most definitely book Kitty again! Thank you so much x


I just wanted to E-mail to say a massive thank you to both Wes and yourself (Jools) for everything you did for us on our son’s Wedding Day. The music was absolutely perfect, just what we wanted and added a really great chilled atmosphere to the afternoon - I’m only sorry I didn’t get a bit more of an opportunity to chat with you on the day (busy circulating and making sure everything/one was ok).   Loads of people commented on how great the music was and I’m very grateful for how flexible you were in moving around the timings of your sets to accommodate us – it gave everything a really good flow


Just a quick email about the Garden Party. Whilst the numbers attending were not high it was a lovely community event in a great setting. EYMS Band were brilliant (we were close by) and the playing of the new piece 'Manchester' was very moving. What a fantastic conductor. Apologies for having to dash off at the end. We had family commitments as we do today. Many thanks for organising it and pass on our congratulations, and thanks to 'the band' again.
