Paul was absolutely incredible!! His communication before the event was always quick and helpful. He discussed the set list with us beforehand and took on any suggestions we had. Paul, Jvsmine and Nico were so much fun, amazing performers and so interactive with the crowd. Thank you so much!

We booked the saxophone and bongos for our wedding. They were amazing and all of our guests loved them playing alongside our DJ. Would definitely recommend and I will be booking them again for any future events.

We loved having Paul at our wedding! The crowd absolutely loved him and he got everyone up and dancing. We booked in for 2 sets, one before dinner and after dinner for round 2 of dancing. Just such a great vibe and wholeheartedly recommend! Parts of the wedding ran over and Paul was kind enough to stay a little bit longer to accommodate, which we really appreciated. He plays over any of your favourite songs and works seamlessly with your DJ so is a no brainer to add that extra element to your wedding! Thanks again Paul, Love Niki & Jack x

Paul and Nico were amazing!! We hired them for our joint 40th birthday party and they didn’t disappoint! Such a variety of music to suit all ages, finishing off with some great tunes which got everyone up dancing! So many of our guests commented on how amazing they were and how you could tell they loved what they were doing… Thank you for making our night so special!! Would definitely recommend for any event or party x

I can’t recommend Paul enough! He is a very talented sax player, and completely made the party. His set was amazing, and had everyone up dancing. His polite and friendly manner, along with being professional makes him the number one choice for any party. I look forward to hearing Paul play again!

MK & the Misters played at our wedding in April and were absolutely fantastic. All setting up and arrangements on the day were faultless, and the band were easy to work with, as well as being very polite and professional. The band were incredible and kept the dance floor packed from the first song to the last. Their wide ranging playlist has plenty to appeal to both young and old, and everyone was singing and dancing along. All in all our expectations were far exceeded by this amazing band. Excellent, 5 stars.
