"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."

"Fantastic band who got all our guests dancing! They were very flexible with song choice and gave us plenty of options. The best part was that they learnt our first song - Nickleback, Far Away - and performed it perfectly, almost as if Chad Kroeger was in the room. Everyone talked highly of the music after the wedding and we will definitely be recommending them to anyone with upcoming nuptuals or a large party. Thank you Ben and Ben!"

"Hello Ben and Ben, Thank you both SO MUCH for playing at Hydon Hill yesterday evening. As usual the music was perfect - top quality, entertaining, unobtrusive, responsive to the event. We heard lots of complimentary comments. I haven't heard yet how much was raised for the residents' garden and associated projects, but it was clear that Hydon Hill got a lot out of the event and it was great to have the local community involved in helping. Chris and Denise"

"I couldn't have asked for a more professional, talented and friendly group of people to play at my wedding reception in April. Music has always been a really important part of both mine and my husband's lives (in very different ways) and so choosing the right band was at the top of our priority list. We had a look at some other groups before booking these guys but just no one compared! We had heard them play at a friend's wedding the year before and knew they were excellent! We had fantastic feedback from our guests after our big day, who were all in awe of the quality of this group and no one had a bad word to say (and we had guests aged 2-89 there!!) They beautifully played our first dance and had my husband and me near tears, and then were able to get the whole room up and dancing-such fantastic musicianship!! These musicians are the best of the best and I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding just that extra bit more special! X"

"Hi Ben, Just a quick note to say thanks so much for Saturday. Everyone on the day and since have said how great you were and nice to have live music playing while we were drinking and eating. Thanks for playing an encore, I know you had another gig to get too so it was much appreciated. Also for letting us use your mic. We had the best day and you being there and playing your music really made it a day to remember. We'd definitely recommend you to any of our friends and family getting married or having a party. Hopefully we'll get to see you play again. All the best Simon & Kay"

"Fantastic. Ben and the Winklepickers played at my 60th Birthday party. They were professional, fun and played the perfect music for the occasion. Everyone was up and dancing from the first song right through to the end of the evening. A thoroughly memorable time was had by all. Thank you."
