What event planners say about our suppliers


Wow! We had the best night and all I want is to tell the band that they were fantastic. They faded way the bad weather from our minds and gave us a great gig. All my guests enjoyed and loved the band especially since it was a new experience for us. Can you believe a live session on my lounge? My 2 kids are now talking about joining a band. I would choose Beats East Enders all nights.


Mel was a perfect addition to our perfect day. She played her wonderful music whilst we sat down to eat, and created a lovely atmosphere. As well as playing so beautifully Mel was friendly, accommodating and professional. I would recommend her to everyone.


Superb Elvis Tribute act and a great show.
