"They were brilliant!! We had so many compliments about the choice of band. You had everyone up dancing like we had hoped for and had exactly the right attitude to the whole thing. My wife and I thought they were superb and we’ve never seen a dance floor so full for so long at a wedding."

"Couldn't have been more flexible, accommodating or friendly when organising! They absolutely smashed the sets, with some great ways of getting people relaxed, and up having fun. Even our 89 year old grandma was up dancing! Great range in their repertoire to cater for a wide variety of tastes, couldn't recommend more!"
