Was on BBC "most watched" list, second to James Corden's Carpool Karaoke with Take That. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/video_and_audio/features/disability-39379545/39379545 Harriet was also once on TV's Dinner Date... she was the idiot that didn't cook the chicken thus making her date somewhat ill. A fresh and unique comic voice. One can expect matchless material, stories so ridiculous they must be true, an offbeat stage presence, a fizzy can of whoop-ass and a dollop of tomfoolery. Harriet gigs for the majority of the big UK clubs (The Stand, Glee, Jongleurs On The Road, Manford's, Avalon, Gilded Balloon etc) and festivals (Kendall Calling, Green Man, Machynlleth, Newquay Boardmasters, Nozstock etc) "She's got funny bones!" – Kevin Bridges "It was refreshing to see such a vibrant you...

What event planners say about our suppliers


Everyone loved the evening and your music - as you could tell! Many thanks to you and all the band for creating such a great atmosphere. Cheers for now, and thanks again Toby


It seems like a lifetime ago already (how?) but you played at our wedding on 16th Sept at Chiddingstone Castle. We haven’t had a chance to thank you! Especially for our first dance song ‘Perfect’...which you sang/played perfectly. It’s a song that’s very special to us despite being fairly new. It’s even more special now and we can’t you enough for doing it for us. It was beautiful. And we couldn’t have chosen a better band for our amazing day. You obviously have music in your blood and adore what you do. My school friends did me proud and glued themselves to the dance floor whilst everyone else stuck to the bar! Inevitable I guess when the evening is spread into multiple rooms. And the bar is free!! But you were amazing and we can’t wait to watch the video back...the whole day is such a blur! Thank you so much, you’re amazing xx Dave and Rebecca Perrotton, Wedding at Chiddingstone Castle in Kent – 16th September 2017


Matthew, thank you for your intrepid playing. Much enjoyed, and commented positively by many of our VIP guests that you welcomed so joyfully.
