"The Heat made our party, we booked them for a work social and they went down a storm. Such a variety of music was on offer throughout the night. The night culminated in a very emotional and enthusiastic sing-along (particularly amongst the resident Mancunians at our company) to the band’s excellent rendition of Don’t Look Back in Anger! Would love to book them again! Thanks guys!"
