Well what an amazing evening! Thank you so much to Greg, Daniel, Dave and Ben ( hope have remembered correctly!) for brilliantly performed and perfectly pitched selection of music. They managed to totally transform the evening from Greg's beautiful acoustic background music while we ate through to all 4 playing a complete blast with everyone dancing their socks off. So providing just the right atmosphere throughout as we had wanted . Wonderful in every way!

Excellent band, varied repertoire, particularly liked the fact there were no backing tracks - horn parts all played live.

Contacted these guys for my cousins wedding and they could not have been more suited to the occasion! Excellent range of styles of music, we even got to request songs in advance to be played especially for the wedding party. Some of the musicians showed off their versatility by playing more than one instrument whilst also being top class singers. Great entertainment!
