Giulia and the Lizards were absolutely great on our wedding day! They got everyone up and dancing and we danced the night away listening to their fabulous sound! They were so fun and played great songs which got a full range of guests dancing and enjoying a range of music from different eras. We loved the lead singers voice and the addition of the saxophone player which we added. Since booking their communication has been fabulous and we have had many messages and phone calls to go through timings and song requests. We requested a quite unusual, unique song from the West Country and they managed to make it sound brilliant. They came from London to West Sussex, near Chichester, arriving on time and being professional and reliable throughout. All in all, we loved having them play at our wedding and would recommend highly!!

Brilliant band, had 80+% of our wedding guests dancing at all times right from the very start. Stayed on to perform two more songs when our guests were chanting “one more song” when it got to the end of their final set. Learnt both my first dance and father daughter dance song with not much notice and performed these to an amazing standard. Lots of compliments from all our wedding guests. Thank you both so much!

Giulia and the lizards were the perfect choice for our birthday party. Their music and voice is amazing but more than that they were able to fit the mood perfectly and up the tempo at exactly the right time to make things go with a swing - thank you so much
