First rate. We had a lovely evening dancing on the lawn to lovely music pitched just right for us. Not too loud either which is a bonus these days. Thoroughly recommend Folk Noggins to all.

We hired Reeverberate for our wedding in October and their playing and service were beautiful. We met Joss and David before the wedding to discuss the kusic and they were very helpful, knowledgeable and kind. On the day they played seamlessly through our wedding breakfast and we really enjoyed having them there and are grateful for all their hard work. Thank you to all of of Reeverberate x
