Graham & Rebekah kept great communication from beginning of booking to the end. They were super flexible in terms of timings and location & with typical wedding ceremony delays they played much longer than originally planned. Graham even managed to get the younger ones involved with a bit of pan tuition! The set up was perfect under their gazebo.
All in all a great day was made better with their rhythmic steel sounds in the sunshine. The bride was so grateful & so were we. Thanks guys for a gr...
