“Truly awesome. Everyone said how great they were and the full dance floor was testimony to the fact! I barely left the dance floor and the "LOVE TRAIN' was hilarious!! I couldn't have planned for the old and young to be dancing like loons in a train around the marquee - utterly priceless. Thank you for holding our hands through the process and a HUGE thank you to them for being such stars.”

Katherine, Wedding, London, May 2019

“They were fun, professional (even though we were running an hour late!) and most importantly played the best live music we have ever heard! We have some musicians amongst our friends and family and they were all absolutely bowled over.”

Lizzie & Adam, Wedding, Berkshire, August 2019

“Exceptional - they made the evening a night to remember!”

Kristina & Liam, Wedding, London, July 2019

“They capture the heart and soul of Motown but somehow manage to make it current and relevant for a modern wedding crowd - AMAZING! The band responded to the crowd and made sure that every tune was a floor filler. I don't know how they managed it with such a diverse audience!”

Max & Sarah, Wedding, Bristol, July 2019

“The band were great - really professional and superb musicians. Everybody had a fantastic night and that was in no small part down to their performance.”

Tom, Private Event, London, June 2019
