Book with confidence! After events, we ask our clients what they thought of our acts. We publish what they say here, so you can read genuine, unbiased feedback before booking.

“They were an amazing live act and had everybody, young and old, on the dance floor for hours - they seemed to play for ages! I cannot stress how talented these guys are! The lead singer had everyone joining in and got down on the dance floor for a boogie, much to the excitement of my Auntie Kim! Several of our guests commented on how good they were and asked where we had found them. We will certainly be booking them again!”

Andy & Leanne, Wedding, August 2019

“Absolutely fantastic. The music was a perfect balance of golden oldies and funky young stuff (a bit like the guests, really) and the singer really got everyone going. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the band or to book them again in future - they really did a great job!”

Hannah, Wedding, July 2019

“You were absolutely amazing! The lead singers voice is just fantastic. They got everybody up dancing and played a great mix of songs. My husband and I are so happy that we chose them to play at our wedding as I really think they made the evening and we had comments from so many people saying how great the band were. We are now trying to think of what we could celebrate next so that we could have them playing for us again! I would say to anyone trying to find a band for their celebration, look no further - pick these guys!!”

Clare & Pete, Wedding, July 2019

“The band completely made our day! We had a large wedding of over 250 guests and I can confidently say that every single one of us up and dancing! We found the booking process really easy and communication with yourselves and the band was attentive and reassuring. Full marks!”

Jessica & Philip, Wedding, The Hilton Hotel in London, July 2019

“They really did make the wedding and had all of our guests up and dancing. They completely surpassed our expectations! They had an exceptional amount of energy, enthusiasm and talent. We had so many people saying they were the best band they'd heard at a wedding! We would recommend them without hesitation.”
