Great fun, full of energy and great voices. Tashara and her backing singer played at my mum and dads 40th weddimg anniversary and were fantastic. She was very professional from our first conversation, going out of her way to make sure her set was exactly what we were looking for. On the night, she was engaging and very entertaining getting all the guest's involved in singing and dancing. The selection of musuc including the Motown section was just what we were looking for and made the night that extra bit special. I highly recommend them and know a number of other guest commented on how good they were and wanted to book them for other parties.

Tashara and the sleeke chix did the evening entertainment at my wedding and they were fabulous! The dance floor was packed from start to finish and they really looked the part too and even had a few costume changes! Tashara worked with us to work out a set that we’d really like and every song was choreographed as well so it was really professional. I’d absolutely recommend booking them for your event, you will have a BLAST! ❤️🙌🏽✨👌🏽

"I thought listening to music was good in and of itself!
But to have Tashara singing and mingling in amongst the party, the dancers and the groovers makes it all the more special and entertaining!
Tashara has such energy, where she not only sings beautifully but also dances and smiles throughout the whole of her performance!
What more can one ask for, when out for an evening dancing with friends, colleagues and loved ones!
Keep Up The Brilliant Work Tashara!
