"""Gary performed on Tuesday at my Nan's funeral service, and was absolutley fantastic! Everyone who came along said that he made the day, not only with his great music but also with his infectious smile. When searching for performers, Steelasophical's prices were the lowest by far (and I mean hundreds!!) and from the beginning Gary was calm and uncomplicated when making arrangments for the day...just what I needed at this difficult time for my family. I can not recommend highly enough, Thank yo...

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.
