What are the highlights of your career?

We are a completely customisable events band. We can do anything from laid back acoustic music and jazz, to our ultimate party band package which comes with a full band, videographer, photographer, DJ and dedicated event planner. Everything is ‘in-house’ so we work directly with our clients and can keep our costs competitive through not working with agents.
What kind of events do you usually serve?
Mainly weddings, but we love playing at all types of events!
Who are your previous clients?
The BBC, Thomas Cook
