Absolutely fantastic band. Everyone at my party commented how brilliant they were. What amazing sets they did. The only downside was that the party had to end. I could have listened to them all night. 😂😂😂

I saw these guys at a recent gig at the Queens Hotel in Portsmouth. I’d heard about them locally but wanted to check them out for my weeding next year. They were everything I wanted from from an RnB band and had everyone hooked for more. Can’t wait for them to perform at my wedding!!

The bar has been set high here! Everything from start to finish, including the amazing performance was just brilliant. Highly recommended this band. The communication both before and during the event was first class.
