"""We've had the absolute pleasure to have Ben and Joel play at our wedding during the reception. From lending us their keyboard for the ceremony to setting up to play at the drinks reception, to playing beautifully, they've been incredible throughout the day. We thoroughly recommend them for your event, whatever it might be.
Ben and Joel, thank you once again for coming all the way to York and honouring us with your presence and lovely music at our wedding."" - Ellie & Jacob"

""Joel & Ben provided the entertainment at my 50th birthday party, which was a black tie event in a boutique hotel. The boys arrived early, were well prepared and were setup in no time.
As well as being talented & skilled musicians, they read the crowd well and were truly fantastic. Both on the night and in the days following, everyone was raving about Joel & Ben. I unreservedly recommend them"" - Richard"
