Best wedding band ever! We couldn’t have asked for more from such a lovely bunch of people! Not only did the band travel through some challenging snow to make sure they made it to our booking but they had all ages and all of our guests on their feet! We have had so many compliments on the band and how much guests enjoyed it saying it’s the most they have enjoyed dancing at a wedding! We could tell that the band were enjoying themselves which really rubbed off onto our guests, they read the audience well and had full participation from all! They made us feel fully comfortable right from our first dance and caused the night to end in some impressive high kicks from my brother in law! They made it a night nobody will forget!

"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

A massive thank you to the band who were amazing! They were the cherry on the top of our day, and helped make it even more memorable. We had so much fun and the bride spent the entire time they were there dancing to every song. Everyone we've spoken to since the day has commented on how brilliant they were, and the energy and fun they gave to the evening was just fantastic. We also want to thank them for being so accommodating when they arrived, as there was a slight issue with the stage which meant they started later than we originally thought. This did not seem to cause them any issue, and they were incredibly professional and generally awesome. We'll be recommending them to everyone, and we're already looking for an excuse to hire them again. We think they rock!  Our sincere thanks and appreciation to all of them. Kind regards, Anna and Ben.

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.
