Joyrider played at our wedding last week and were absolutely amazing. Great set with a mix of songs that catered to everyone, and kept everyone on the dance floor all night! The band were awesome and everyone was commenting on how brilliant they were. Steve was really helpful in the run up to the event and made sure we had no unanswered questions and the night ran so smoothly. They were also able to sing our choice of first dance song which was so special. Thank you to Steve, Jen and the rest of the guys for helping to make our day so perfect.
