What people say
Absolutely fantastic, you did us proud. Our guests loved what you did, your choice of music was superb, and everyone had a great time as you could tell from the packed dance floor! You provided the perfect end to our perfect day.

Just wanted to say what a great performance The Stings put on at my daughters evening wedding celebrations. What had already been a memorable day was made complete by the band. I have received many compliments about the band and how good it was to hear live music as opposed to the usual 'Wedding Disco'. It was a pleasure to deal them, they were totally professional throughout and would have no hesitation in recommending them. A great band and five lovely people who clearly enjoy their music. Many thanks.
