What event planners say about our suppliers


It was lovely to meet you on Saturday. I just wanted to say a massive thank you. Everyone enjoyed themselves and I’ve had such good feedback about you guys. To have people up dancing by the end of the first song is quite an achievement, so it shows just how good you all are. So good we've booked you again, looking forward to seeing you in December for our christmas bash. Until then, take care. Very kind regards, Pam


I booked Andy for my mother's birthday having come across him on Poptop and watching a few videos clips. He was absolutely fabulous! There were approx 60 people of all ages and everyone commented on how good he was. He sang to the birthday girl one of her favourite songs and she ended up singing with him :). The range of songs was great and we all had a great evening singing and dancing. I have no hesitation in recommending Andy and will definitely be booking him for future parties and events, Thanks Andy for a superb evening!


Really exceptional band both musically and vocally, the range of songs and artists was incredible, and all songs were performed magnificently. I asked for a request to play Purple Rain for my wife, which they performed outstandingly. A truly great night out all due to Breaker Live. Thank you very much boys...if you get the chance to see them perform near you....dont miss out.
