What event planners say about our suppliers


It was honestly an absolute delight to have Talisha and Chris playing throughout the ceremony and dinner and most of our guests are still talking about how incredible the band were weeks down the line. We have had people asking for your details and will be sure to pass them on. We would certainly have no problem recommending you guys.


The Spring Heeled Jacks provided an excellent evening's entertainment & all our guests remarked how much they enjoyed their music. The pace of instruction was suitable for a mixed audience & we only wish that we could of hired our venue for longer to enjoy the Spring Heeled Jacks for longer. I would recommend them to anyone.


Really enjoyed a superb concert last night. Excellent programme especially Force of Destiny one of my favourite test pieces and the irrepressible "Joker" who the audience really warmed to. Looking forward to our next concert at Christmas time. Good luck for future contesting, the band seems to be in a good place at the moment. Stig rules ok!!
