Warm, friendly band. Very good musicians with a great selection of numbers. I'd ask them back in a heartbeat! Only sorry that my dancing energy gave out towards the end.

“The Hillbillies were just what we asked for. The band were on time and they set-up asap. After it stopped raining the band started right away. This was the kind of music that we wanted. It was not too loud and everyone enjoyed it. They certainly made the day, and were very well appreciated. The band even carried on playing when the rain came down again, and as soon as the sun came out. Everyone was back in the mood. We will certainly be booking them the next time. Great band and Woody was a gentleman. Just great.”
