Archie and Aya were amazing - really made the party (my husband's 40th). They brought the Ibiza party vibe and had the whole party dancing for hours. 100% recommend and we'll have them back again soon!

We booked DJ Sax for our wedding and they were absolutely brilliant! Apart from sax & flute they also had some drums (which the kids took to immediately!) And it got lots of our guests involved ! They are super friendly, reliable, on time and just fabulous - they played requests that were a bit "out of the box" for a wedding which was awesome and got everybody dancing , we couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you so much for being part of our big day and giving us and our guests an incredible evening! Janka & Rob

So glad we booked The Eccentrics for our wedding. Everyone had a great time and loved them. Great mix of music and they took requests, even learning one of the songs they were not familiar with. Would highly recommend them and will use them again in future!
