The Sound Express band were amazing at last year's annual celebration. I hired the Sound Express band for a student party at Colindale's Student residency. The booking process was so easy and Jose was a pleasure to deal with. The performance was absolutely fantastic, keeping everyone dancing and engaging the audience for the whole of the show duration. Thanks so much Jose and the band, will definitely book you again for more events and would be happy to recommend the band, without hesitation Chiara Quaquero , Director of Travel Ego ltd
