Testimonials and reviews

"It is 3.30 am and my feet are killing me, but I could not sleep before thanking you all for the most fabulous evening tonight. The texts and emails are already coming in and it appears, unsurprisingly, that everyone had as fabulous time as I did. I will try to write more over the weekend, but in the meantime thank you all for the hard work which went into making such a tour de force."
Jania, Wedding, London

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the band and Shane for such a fantastic job you all did on Saturday! You guys were amazing and all my friends said it was the best music they had heard at a wedding. I hope you were looked after and fed well, apologies I was quite drunk (everyone says you don't get drunk at your wedding?!) and so was not really checking things. You guys were a pleasure to deal with and I will recommend you to any friends getting married next."
Gemma, Wedding, London 

"I Just wanted to say big thanks to you and the band. Thought you guys did an absolutely amazing job! The dance floor was packed every time I looked."
Antony Solomons, Wedding

"You were all entirely fabulous at our wedding and we have had so very many comments on how much people enjoyed your music. You are mentioned in every thank you letter we have received so far and  I would not be at all surprised if you don’t get some more work from this."
Sarah Van Der Noot, Wedding

"Thanks for a cracking show. You guys are quite simply the best wedding band ever."
Tim Cocks, Wedding

"Just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you so much for such a great evening of entertainment.  You guys were absolutely fantastic and really made our evening very special.  We had lots of comments from the guests on how great you were. I hope the hotel was ok, and you got back safely on Sunday."
Laura and Scott, Wedding

"Just to say a great big thank you to you all. WOW WOW and WOW. The band was fantastic there is nothing I can say other than 'SUPERB'. You really did make our wedding reception a cut above the rest. The guests feedback was amazing and even the Hotel staff could not keep away. If any wedding couple is considering booking yourselves we would say do not hesitate and BOOK! This will be a decision that they will never regret and have their guests talking about their reception for years to come. The whole band were professional, looked the part and delivered on exactly what we needed and wanted. Exceeded expectations."
Carly Higglesden, Wedding
