The Oompah Army's Reviews

From customers:

I just wanted to write to thank you and the other members of your quintet who performed at our Christmas Function last week. The music was fantastic and really helped the night go with a swing. You very ably helped us all butcher some Christmas Carols with our singing, but we really appreciated the breadth and variety of music you provided.

My thanks to you, and please pass on my thanks to all of the members of the band that played at the service. The service was both memorable and moving, the band played in a flawless and professional manner, the last post and reveille were of particular note. The bass drummer also did very well in keeping all of the marching contingent in step.
