Couldn’t have wished for a better band for our club party at the Walton Hall Hotel, Wellesbourne. Half Cut gave it their all - vocals and instruments as good as many of the numbers they covered, a varied play list and they gauged the atmosphere and kept the dance floor full, interacted with everyone and their final number (without any prompting from us) was perfect for a load of quirky petrol-heads. They’d obviously taken time to find out what we were all about In addition to all of this, band frontman John took time to get in touch beforehand to reassure that they would do everything to help make our annual bash a success. Can’t recommend Half Cut, four talented and lovely chaps, highly enough.
