What event planners say about our suppliers


Fantastic band, great sound, dance moves and fantastic vocals make for a brilliant show - professional and lovely in every way - couldn't recommend more highly. Looking forward to seeing them again!


Hi Ben, Just a quick note to say thanks so much for Saturday. Everyone on the day and since have said how great you were and nice to have live music playing while we were drinking and eating. Thanks for playing an encore, I know you had another gig to get too so it was much appreciated. Also for letting us use your mic. We had the best day and you being there and playing your music really made it a day to remember. We'd definitely recommend you to any of our friends and family getting married or having a party. Hopefully we'll get to see you play again. All the best Simon & Kay


Fay & the other members of the Carlton Ensemble were in fantastic form on Saturday evening. Their rendition of old favourites, classical, popular and jazz, was one the the many high points of our big day. They went down so well with our guests, that we asked them to play for an extra hour...which they were kind enough to do!! No wonder the guests were still talking about their performance throughout yesterday
