What great entertainment and thoroughly lovely people. We booked a trio of guitar, violin and accordion and we danced the whole time they played! Would definitely recommend these guys for all your mariachi needs! They made our party really special. Thanks The Mexican Way


Fantastic. Ben and the Winklepickers played at my 60th Birthday party. They were professional, fun and played the perfect music for the occasion. Everyone was up and dancing from the first song right through to the end of the evening. A thoroughly memorable time was had by all. Thank you.


Hello Jess, We were so pleased we chose you to perform as you complemented the feel we were hoping for and all the guests thought you added a lovely touch to the day. In fact I've given one of the guests your details as they are organising a party next month so you may be contacted soon! Once again thank you for helping make our day so special. Perhaps see you again we hope, Chris and Ivy
