Between them, the band have played at the most prestigious venues including the Birmingham NEC and Royal Albert Hall, as well as sought-after wedding venues, including Stubton Hall, Northcote House and Longstowe Hall, so you can be confident you’re not just getting a great band, but a professional service from the start.

Andrew & Anna, Wedding at Pepys Pub in London, June 2017

“We could not have booked a better band. I booked them at the last minute and the booking process was smooth. I checked out reviews online, but was still worried about handing over money for a band I'd never heard in person. I needn't have worried - they were amazing! There was an issue with the venue not telling us they had a sound limiter. The band dealt with this really well and all my guests commented how fantastic they were. I have some friends who want to book them now!”

Stephanie, Wedding in London, December 2016

“Great phone manner, came as described and as per video. Excellent musicians. I play in a band myself so have seen and done many gigs myself, very professional.
