I booked the Music Machine for a private gig in York and couldn't have been more please. The band were super lovely and played an amazing set. Myself and my guests had a wonderful time and would definitely book them again.

I couldn't imagine you could find a better band for an event or function. I was blown away by the talent of all the musicians and the energy they bring to their performance. They are fabulous fun, a wonderful bunch of friendly and easy going people who will bring an event alive with their signature soul and funk numbers. Totally recommended.
