Ian & Lou's 25th Anniversary Party

I was extremely satisfied with the band, the contact before the event was great, they were very punctual and set up exactly as they had said. Everyone at the party loved them! A great band, and so friendly.

We held the party at the Ambleside Club in Southend-on-Sea. We chose this venue as it is local to wear we live and a large sized hall.


I wanted a Caribbean/reggae kind of theme, so we chose a Caribbean steel band to add to the holiday feel of the party. I chose to book through Function Central as a friend had used the website before.


The decorating of the hall, and the band were my favourite parts of the event.

My advice to anyone else planning a party is to be organised! Plan everything fully before the big day, then you can just sit back and enjoy it with your guests.
