Everyone loved the band and so many people said how much they enjoyed the entertainment.

Caryn C

The perfect duo to create a great atmosphere" James and Nick were brilliant. Smooth vocals and brilliant guitar accompaniment! They really set the scene for my corporate soiree. Nothing was too much trouble and they were extremely easy to work with. A great duo for background easy listening with a twist!
