What event planners say about our suppliers


Excellent evening with the Spring Heeled Jacks. Great music and a lovely atmosphere. Everyone young and old loved the dancing and the caller was fantastic in coaxing even the most reluctant dancers onto the floor. The band were very talented and friendly. All our guests said what a great evening they had and and you can't want for more than that.


Absolutely Amazing! What a night. People constantly mentioned how Lilac had made the night. Beautiful voice and the playlist that she created for the barn dance theme was perfect. Can't say enough, just super pleased that we found her! Remko, who was in charge of set up and sound quality was brilliant, knew exactly what he wanted and knew what he was doing, always making it work, whatever we suggested. Both Lilac and Remko were up for moving outside instead of inside (due to the rare nice British weather), which turned out to be a huge success and a great shout. The sound quality outside was brilliant and with the lights, this really did make the evening, that more special. Can't express enough how good Lilac and Remko are. Worth every penny and so much more. They even stayed around till the end of the party which was a lovely touch. Currently trying to find where Lilac and Remko perform in Hitchin, as we look forward to seeing them again. A must have band! No need to be looking else where. Thank you to you both so much. The Cummins Family and Guests.


Hi Matt, just wanted to say a huge thank you to you guys for rocking our wedding reception. We had a blast and the band are amazing. You made it so easy and I loved the set lists. All the feedback from our guests (including the bad dancers) has been nothing but positive! Hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did, and you had all the food and drink you needed. We also really appreciated how you let the girls sing their song from Frozen, it made their night and they felt like true pop stars!! Cheers Guys.
