What event planners say about our suppliers


What an amazing day. A Mexican theme birthday party for a special birthday and special boy. Everyone arrived in fancy dress which is always a good start as were already in the mood to party. The food and even the beer was Mexican. Mariachi Rey were amazing and were accompanied by our host Mexican dancers who were fantastic! The songs were great, everyone sang along and left the party with big smiles on their faces and a wonderful memory to cherish forever. That is surely how you measure the real success of a party. Thank you Mariachi Rey for making this one of the best days in mine and my family's life! Worth every penny and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants great entertainment and a cracking party. Daryl


Stomping Boondocks were available to stand in at very last minute when our original band dropped out, and we've had nothing but good feedback about the music and have booked them again for our Summer Fete!


We hired Mike for our son and daughter in laws wedding celebration on New Year's Eve. From the initial contact to the night of the event, Mike was always easy to contact which meant the evening was really easy to organise. Mike was immaculately turned out and his pipe playing first class. He played a large selection of tunes and to top it all he piped the bride and groom into the main hall which was truly fantastic. Mike stayed on to have photo after photo taken with all the guests. A real gentleman. I would highly recommend Mike to play at any given function. Thanks for making a great night even more special. (10 / 10) Pete cawley
