Thank you! Dear Freya and Dave We would just like to say a heart felt thank you for playing at our wedding last week.

'Dave and Freya were amazing. Friendly but super professional. Just perfect. From the communication, price to the first song. They had everyone at the wedding dancing from the second they started. Can't recommend Harbottle & Jonas highly enough'.
