Halos were great band, they really listened to what I wanted to have played and changed the set when requested. They were really friendly on the night; the music was really good and nearly everyone wanted to know where I had found them.

"Halos were absolutely fantastic. Really good communication in the lead up to our wedding, looking to be as helpful as possible.
So many guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music. We wouldn't have changed them for anything. Thank you!"

Halos helped make my husbands 40th an afternoon and night to remember.
Arrived with loads of time to set up, and 2 hour sets, great vibe and a lovely voice for a long summer afternoon. Couldn’t recommend them enough!

"Halos performed at my garden birthday party a few weeks ago and to say they were brilliant is an understatement!
Throughout the whole process Jim was very professional but also very easy to communicate with. A thoroughly lovely guy!
The day was just perfect, amazing weather, England
beating Sweden to kick the party off, and the music being the icing on the cake. Chilled, relaxed, funky soulful tunes. Julie has the most amazing voice and Jim and George excellent musicians. We loved them ...

"Tier 1 performers, the Halo's played a sensational couple of sets at our wedding.
Week's later everyone still mentions how great they were, and a few are planning on booking them for their events too.
Their overall sound and style is fantastic, and Julie's vocals are absolutely mega. They delivered exactly what they promised, and smashed out refreshing versions of well known classics without ever hitting any cliche tunes.
Jim was outstanding to deal with and made the whole coordinat...
