I am in the process of organizing a summer event for my company. We are the creative department of an advertising agency and have a field booked near Godalming on September 16th for an ‘Autumn Equinox/harvest/back to nature’ themed mini-festival. There will be roughly 80 people taking part in activities throughout the day, and having a big dinner and bonfire in the evening. We would love to hire a band that suited this theme, relatively folky, chilled out but upbeat. Budget wise we are looking to spend no more than £250 ideally. Is this something you might be able to help with?
Thanks a lot,

A mere thank you probably would not be enough. The way you rocked the night was amazing. Every guest mentioned that the best of the day was the band. We were surprised beyond any measure. What a performance? What music? What connection with the crowd? Fabulous! There is hardly any other word out to describe the performance. Everyone joined in the dance floor. We too, for the first time!
We booked DDFK Oktoberfest Party Band for a recent corporate event held on a boat on the Thames, so a challenging venue but DDFK were great. As an Austrian Company we were looking for an Austrian feel and were delighted with the selection of oompah music. The band were excellent and really nice people to deal with, we would highly recommend them.
They were lovely people and everyone there enjoyed their music.
It was a Country Fair and due to their effort we had people dancing on the grass with straw bales around to sit on, ( we did have some chairs also ) a beer tent and prosecco stall nearby, food on sale.
Happy people !
Job well done.
We would certainly book them again for another event.
