We had a charity event on Friday for Cancer Research UK, the Jake and Ian band made the evening for us, they were absolutely fantastic, great musicians and the voices were wow. Would definitely rebook - lots more fans in the Chester area guys.

"If you need a Band for a Wedding or Party, you need to check out these guys. We used Jake & Ian for our wedding in August and they were absolutely amazing!
They literally made the day from the minute the service was over they had everyone up singing and dancing (even before the meal) with a real variance of music, from old 60’s classics, soul to current pop and dance tunes.
Jake and Ian, thank you for making our day truly magical, you are simple amazing, and we couldn’t have asked for more…..Thanks you , G & J xxx"

Excellent. Ian kept in touch throughout the booking procedure and up to the event. He dealt with all my daft questions, was helpful and courteous. All my guests enjoyed the music and asked where the band was from. I would recommend them for any event.

These two brilliant musicians made our wedding day so, so special! We had many nice comments about them both, sound-wise they put all the bands we've seen to shame and they are modern! From the communication to seeing them get 150 people dancing and singing was just brilliant, we look forward to future parties and seeing you both again. x
