Banana Milkshake put on a fantastic show for the kids at our school. They lead three assemblies for the different year groups that all the children thoroughly enjoyed. Their music was fantastic and they did a great job answering all the children’s questions. Would highly recommend booking this talented and friendly band.

Barbara and Mihael performed at our wedding and we were so thrilled! My wife and I have known them for years and we always very much enjoy their performances. I warmly recommend them to all who love to hear great music!
