Excellent. Ian kept in touch throughout the booking procedure and upto the event. He dealt with all my daft questions, was helpful and courteous. All my guests enjoyed the music and asked where the band was from. I would recommend them for any event.

These 2 are just the most talented and outstanding performers. Our wedding day really would not have been the same without them there. Perfect music choices and sets, I loved that they were able to play outside at our venue without any hesitation and they even managed to play all our music choices for the ceremony, our first dance and a few special requests. Never a problem to accommodate our requests and even worked with our crazy flashmob idea to make sure that went off without a hitch as well. I would highly highly recommend for any event. Thank you so much guys, I hope we will see you at another event someday. Claire and Phil x

These guys are not just two exceptionally talented musicians but they are also two of the nicest, most genuine people you could wish to meet. The background work on putting together a set list for our evening was meticulous. When we found out that, rather than play our first dance, Jake was learning the whole song to sing it live we were completely blown away and the end result did not disappoint. Soon after our initial meeting we were emailed a playlist to use for our wedding breakfast. The content was spot on and encapsulated the style and theme of the wedding. It was so ‘us’! The mix of live performance and DJ sets in between for the evening entertainment is perfect. Jake’s vocals are so good sometimes it was hard to notice the join. All of our guests remarked on how good these guys were and how well they read the room and kept the party going into the wee small hours. We cannot recommend Jake and Ian highly enough. A lot of our guests have asked for their details for upcoming events of their own. Thank you both for being the icing on the cake of what was our special day.
