“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding yesterday – Xian and I were blown away by how beautiful you all sounded together. We really appreciate it and for giving us that extra special something for our day.”

Emma, Wedding, Rockwell Farm, September 2019

“Feedback really positive, thanks for a really great show!”

Maureen, Next Pharma function, Cranfield University, September 2018

“We just wanted to express our sincerest thanks for playing so beautifully at our wedding. When we first saw your video online, I got that special, magical tingle. We loved the fusion of classical, pop, show tunes and the little quirky pieces – ‘Let’s go fly a kite’ went down a storm. I was personally mesmerized! Again, thank you all for making our wedding day truly memorable, to us and all our guests - you were perfect!”

Gary & Paul, The Crown Inn, Amersham, August 2018

“Thank you for playing at our wedding. Your beautiful sound created a magical and very special ambience in the church, which many of our guests commented on. Thank you also for playing at our reception, we had a wonderful day full of music, love and friendship.”

Becky and Dave, Wedding, London, April 2018

“Thank you all for your coming down and performing for us, I thought you played beautifully and for me it really made the day special. I just wished I could have stood and listened to you a bit more instead of having to chat and have my picture taken! A lot of people commented on how good you were, and there are at least a few people (including my mum and me) that will be looking out for events to book you for again.”

Toby, Wedding, Burgh House, Hampstead, June 2018
