Group were fantastic, very professional, very obliging and outstanding quality. Thank you for such a great experience. The lead singer could also be a stand up comic. The whole afternoon/evening was one to remember. It was such short notice that I was a little apprehensive but as soon as they started playing my apprehension disappeared. I would recommend them without hesitation. Thank you.
