Matt was pefect and faultless in all, and performed a very melancholy rendition of Autumn Leaves for us and played my Fthers trumpet, which was lovely for us all to hear it in full song again. He was the icing on the cake of what was a lovely ceremony. Many thanks Matt

The band played at our wedding last night and were incredible! All our friends and family have been raving about the band, they really made our wedding even more special. I can’t recommend them more if you want something a little bit different that gets everyone up dancing, singing and smiling. Thank you so much No Limit Street Band

We cannot thank this band enough! They were so easy to deal with from start to finish, catered for all our requests and were really helpful. We had such an amazing wedding and these guys topped off a great day. All of our guests have said how much they loved them and everyone was on the dance floor all night!
