We were so lucky they managed to perform our first dance. We couldn't thank them more for the amazing entertainment they brought to our wedding. They played wonderful background music during our dinner and then more well known songs later on but they added a jazz twist which went down brilliantly with all of our guests. We will recommend this duo to anyone who wants a jazz performance at their wedding!
