Wedding, 1 year ago

I want to say a massive thank you for making our wedding party so great. I have to say the band was the only thing I was a little nervous about as we’d only seen videos online and hadn’t had a personal recommendation, etc. It was also probably our biggest splurge of the wedding however every single penny was worth it. It was the best band i’ve ever seen at a wedding, all 3 sets had everyone up, I don’t think there was one song that had less than 25 people on the dance floor. The singers looked amazing, great outfits, great voices. Everything was just perfect. Thank you so much and please do pass on my thanks to every member of the band.

Nicole has a stunning voice that exudes sensuality, excitement and style. She is sassy, smart and tenacious with a smile that will melt your heart. She brings a unique sophistication to that stage that will electrify you and blow you away. What a rare find and a gem!
