Brilliant band you wouldn't be disappointed they have played at both major events in my life and it wouldn't have been the same without them. Very talented x

Amazing band!!! They played at our wedding and we were thrilled to bits with them. They helped make our special day even more memorable. The dance floor was always full, amazing atmosphere and they played songs that spanned the ages and appealed to all - such good fun and highly entertaining. Our wedding guests raved about them and if we need a band for another event we’ll definitely use them again! Highly recommend.

Bloody brilliant ! We just hosted our First Ladies night ! Nothing was too much trouble and they were really happy to
co ordinate with our other acts to make sure everything went smoothly ! If I could give them 100 - 10 star rating I would ! Worth every penny ! A real great find !"

Good fun band with a wide spectrum of music for all ages and tastes, met these at our friends birthday party and everyone commented what a great night they had, with a few blisters thrown in with all the dancing. I can easily recommend Candy and The Sound
