The event was great. Monika and Blue Orchid were exactly what we required for a family party of mixed ages, teens to nineties. The sound was just right and the professionalism great. Choice of material was excellent and Monika has a wonderful voice. All our guests raved about the music.

"Steve and Monika were a delight from the start, so flexible with our demands and did everything to make sure we were happy. Their performance on the night was fabulous, Monika's voice is divine and Steve's piano skills are amazing. Everybody remarked how wonderful the music was and the choice of songs fitted the evening perfectly. If we are to have another party we will definitely ask this duo back again, they made our party rock! (10 / 10)
