Absolutely Amazing!!! Beat Connection were able to play at my 40th party (27.5.18) at late notice and to say we LOVED them would be a massive understatement!! The playlist was perfect, the band fantastic, vocals awesome....the overall energy created had us dancing and singing along all night. Safe to say I very highly recommend them... If you want an amazing band bringing fun and energy to your event...no need to look any further!! Alex was great at keeping in touch with me and always clear in messages and phone calls. She sorted the planning out directly with the venue which was just great for me and ensured all was sorted ready for me to just enjoy the evening celebrations! All my party guests often talk about how fantastic the band were :) Thank You! Claire

ear Alex, I just want to thank you, Matt and the rest of your fantastic band for helping to make my party on Saturday such a great success. I couldn't have been more pleased and so many of my guests made a point of saying how great your band was. The music for every aspect of the evening, background music as the guests arrived, Matts DJ sections and of course the 2 live sets was judged just right and kept the party moving along in the way I had hoped. I must also thank you for the professional way you liaised with me from the initial contact onwards to make sure that my expectations for the evening were completely met. Thank you so much Alex, you and Beat Connection made my 60th party such a memorable event. Best wishes Julia
