Stephen: I hired these guys for my wife's 50th birthday celebration and the night was a great success. We had all kinds of people there, young and old and the music got everybody up and dancing from start to finish. The band were super professional and charmed the audience right from very first song. All the musicians were masters of their craft and the singers were superb. The sound quality was brilliant throughout. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the One Love Orchestra, organising the booking was easy, the show was unforgettable and the party goers wanted it to go on all night! In short, they were worth every penny.
