What event planners say about our suppliers


You guys were incredible!!!! The best band ever, we wish you could have played all night! The guys on the trumpet and sax were insane, I loved it when they came on the dance floor and especially when they were dancing on the tables, do you guys usually do that??? My sister has already told me she will be booking you for her wedding next year and I will be sure to pack my dancing shoes for that! To sum you guys up, my friends who are getting married next month said: "We're so gutted we've already booked our band" Thank you thank you!


What a faboulous duo: Plus 1 on the Cajan drum box. When they started playing I was with a friend who is also a very talented musician and was blown away with how good they were. Beautiful voices, very tight and clearly zoned in on their performance. They played a fabulous set of selected music (from there huge set list) and really made eavry song their own, of which some were. Many of our guests said we should have had them playing later as opposed to before, during and after our meal. I thoroughly recommend them for any party or gathering. Ps- Incredibly easy to book and sort out for the gig and Laura is fabulous to work with
