"We saw Steelasophical at a friend’s wedding, they were so good, we felt that we had to book them for our special day on Saturday 27th August at Hintlesham Golf Club. Thanks guys, you did an amazing job, an awesome collection of songs created a great atmosphere for our drinks reception. All our guests loved you and we loved seeing you again to enjoy a unique sound that really started our wedding reception off in the best way possible. Book these guys, they are amazing! Love the new Mr & Mrs Clark, Felixstowe."

"The caribbean steel band played at our wedding on 6th October. We were only expecting a solo performance but were delighted when a duo played. Throughout their performance they went that extra mile. Would highly recommend this band for any occasion. Many many thanks for making our day even more memorable."

"The band were booked for the wedding reception of my son and new wife. The guys were brilliant, music was excellent, they were very smartly dressed and so pleasant to deal with. From the initial booking of the event I was kept updated, the manager Gary responded straight away to any queries I had. Overall a very professional band. I would not hesitate to recommend them. Price wise, although they were the most expensive, they represented the best value."

"Our party took place on a horrendous cold windy and rainy day; but, you wouldn't have guessed it! Steelosophical (duo with DJ services) bought the Carribean weather to the party and was all the guests talked about even 2 weeks after the party. The band were professional, and surprised me with their range of songs ( there was something for all ages and cultures) and their talent with one of the members taking a turn on the mic. They arrived early to set up so the guests were played to on arrival. The hotel in fact were late with the reception drinks which didn't matter as everyone was so transfixed with the band. Gary was a pleasure to deal with and happily used his experience of events to judge the mood of the event and play music accordingly. My mother always has to complain about something and she was full of praise for the band and the party as a result of the band. Result!! I would rate them 11/10 and would highly recommend them."
