"The band were incredible. They really surpassed our expectations and blew us away. The atmosphere throughout the whole set was amazing and the guests loved it! They absolutely nailed our fist dance song and played an extra few songs when everyone called for more! I can’t recommend them highly enough. They are even better live than the recordings. Thanks to them for providing such amazing entertainment at our wedding!"

“I can't really do the band justice.....they were fantastic and made the evening for us and all our guests. The dance floor was packed all night and people kept commenting on how great the band were! Please thank them for us for our first song, which was great.....and apologise for my terrible dancing!
