What event planners say about our suppliers


We were so lucky to be able to book The Fusion at short notice and so glad that we did. From the very first number to the last they had the dancefloor jumping. Have to say also, extremely courteous and pleasant to deal with throughout.


Sally and Nick's Wedding "BOOK THIS BAND. DO IT. DO IT NOW" We booked the Del Sharrons to play at our wedding after seeing their poster advertising a gig at our local pub. Having not seen them we decided to travel to the other side of Leicester as it was clear they were in demand but we didn't want to book a band without seeing them first. Wow. After the first song our mind was made up & we booked them there and then. We asked Matt if it would be possible to learn a song for our first dance - it wasn't a rock n roll song but we wanted a rock n roll twist to it to fit in with both the theme of the wedding, and the dance that we'd been learning for months. They happily obliged, even booking some studio time so we could have the song before the big day. I hadn't really considered how big a deal this was at the time but now can see how much trouble they went to to help us. The song, for anyone that's interested, was Mr Brightside & The Del Sharrons absolutely smashed it. They were awesome!


“Mary and her band were completely brilliant. They got the dance floor heaving and everyone at our wedding – from teen cousins,to friends and grandparents – have told us what a highlight the band were. They learned our first dance song and played it beautifully. Mary has the most wonderful voice. In the preparation, they were super organised and relaxed which put us totally at ease. We would recommend them for any party in a second.”
