"Communication with the band was excellent and they made sure that everything fitted to our plans.

The audience was a mixed age group and the play list suited everyone.

Great sound quality and the double bass made it just a little bit different. Couldn't fault them a great evening."

Firstly, really friendly guys who were able to be flexible with what suited our corporate event. Got back to me really quickly and were early on the day to make sure they were set up. Plus played great music which I know the client loved. Would definitely recommend and book again!

Thank you so much for being so fabulous! You really were awesome and we've had so many good comments from everybody saying how great you were. I've told you before about how I knew you'd be great. Well...you blew my expectations out of the water! I did not in my wildest dreams think that you would have such an effect on everyone. Some people who I just did not expect to see dancing were up there all night! It just could not have been better! I only wish we could have that night back! I don't kno...

Hi Ben, Thank you SO MUCH for playing at our wedding. We loved your music and were especially impressed with your version of Counting Stars. You were all so friendly and we are so glad we discovered you. You helped make the atmosphere fun yet relaxed and that is exactly what we wanted. Plus you got everyone on the dancefloor and kept them there the whole night! Wishing The Winklepickers the best of luck! All the very best, Steph and Alex
