    Pat & John , Wedding, Egham, September 2014
  • Thank you for such a fantastic set of music on Saturday. You guys are absolutely fantastic and we totally loved it!!!! As did all our guests. So many people were asking how we found you and if they could have your contact details…

    James & Mary , Wedding, Southampton, August 2013
  • We have had so much positive feedback from guests about the band. You were brilliant and both sessions were absolutely right for the wedding and made all the difference. We were blessed with perfect weather and this enabled the afternoon session to be played outside - how idyllic - Pimms upon arrival and this glorious music playing; garden party fit for royalty! The dance floor was heaving from the time the music started. You probably could not see, but outside the marquee we also had guests dancing!
