Louise and the love bugs were absolutely amazing, can’t rate them highly enough. They were incredible and kept the dance floor filled for every minute they played. They answered all my questions and worries pre wedding promptly and Booking them through encore was very easy and straight forward. Would highly highly recommend them! Thank you 😊

Louise and Love Bugs were absolutely brilliant at our wedding. We were numbers restriced due to Covid but they still got a lot of people on the dance floor. Very talented, friendly and professional group!

Absolutely faultless! With professionalism, extreme talent and magnetic personality - this band are beyond ‘good’. Right from the initial booking, communication has been prompt and personable and on the day of our wedding we (and the guests) were simply blown away. Guests at our wedding were in awe of the various genres of music intertwined so meticulously and seamlessly ... not one person could help but dance! The band learned our first dance and it was simply perfect ... more than we could have ever hoped for. In short, we would recommend this band wholeheartedly and thank them sincerely for their generosity in talent and time.

The band on the day (although not actually loise and the love bugs) gave an amazing performance which all of our wedding guests loved. Everyone was dancing right up until finish. The band also has excellent range in what they could play to a high standard. The band where somewhat let down by their manager however as they where told to expect cash payment on the day despite me booking and paying on encore. The band handled this well but it was quite a big oversight. Also we didn’t actually get Lois and the love bugs in the end as they substituted the lead singer and guitarist as they took another opportunity abroad. There fill in where very impressive however.

Charming Louise were fantastic providing music for our wedding ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening. Their attire, style and music evolved throughout the day to match the needs of the occasion. Our guests were full of compliments for Charming Louise. We loved them too and would absolutely recommend them.

I have worked with The Love Bugs band for a total of 15 months over the space of two contracts. I can honestly say they are incredibly talented individuals with immense professionalism. Their abilities to accompany our Ballroom Dancers in one of our flagship shows and also provide an amazing party atmosphere at our Dream Night celebrations make them really something special. I would recommend them for any worthy event! Juliana Brandao, Production Manager @ Genting Dream Cruises
