"Absolutely FANTASTIC - they were GREAT!.

They were very professional - emailed regularly regarding contract, cost,deposit,schedule, song preferences - every little detail.

They arrived on time were very efficient at setting up and accommodating our request to surprise the Birthday girl on her arrival etc.

They got people up dancing and were generous to little toddlers who were joining in and even played a little longer.

Would definitely book them again

Thanks

Jackie"

What a fantastic band. You really made our wedding reception with great songs, incredible vocals, amazing musical talent and pure class. We had so much praise for the band on the night and would like to thank you for making our night even more special and performing a fantastic version of our first dance. Would highly recommend you. Jo & Andy.

Thank you so so much for performing at our wedding in Stratford upon Avon. You were totally amazing and our guests loved you. Thank you also for learning my song request for my dad, he loved it and it meant a lot. We had an amazing day and our evening rocked! Thank you, Becky & Joe.
