I had heard lots of people raving about you guys but i couldn't believe how good you were when the party started ! Thank you for taking care of all the announcements and making it such a happy and special day for me and my beautiful wife. You took the time to listen to us and what music we wanted played and were so polite and humble. I cant recommend your band enough - first class service thank you x

Thank you so much for the brilliant set you guys put together last night. It made our wedding complete. Sorry if we went abit mental with the dancing just thought i did it others would follow . Think we kicked the hell out of the dancefloor in the end. If you guys need anything please just give me a shout anytime. Thank so much on behalf of us both. John

A good night out at the Malthouse in Ironbridge last night with Sonic Boom. I can't recommend this band highly enough so if they're every over your way, make some time to go and see them. Another excellent performance, great energy and good to see the place buzzing like I've never seen it before!

We can rush and do it in an hour but please bear in mind that if this is the case the first few songs of your event will become our soundcheck .
