This lovely band played at the Cardiff Uni MLang Ball and it was so, so good! All 124 of us were on the dance floor having an absolute blast. The guys were very accommodating and super-friendly when it came to sorting out all the details. It made the ball so much more special to have some brilliant live music. Thank you!
