We hired you guys for our Wedding in Windermere in December and i have to start off by saying you professionalism was just superb, because of the nasty weather we were having, i am more than certain alot of bands would have cancelled. On to the music, it was just outstanding from the get go, my self, husband, friends and family absolutley loved it, and thank you for taking sooo many requests during your disco set, which had everyone on the dance floor as much as the Ceilidh Dancing did. If anyone is looking at hiring a Ceilidh and Disco for their wedding, then these guys are just fantastic, brilliant value for money and worth every penny! highly highly recommended!
