Amazing band! All guests are talking about this band now and asking where we've found them. They've made our birthday celebration unforgettable and set the mood for the whole evening. Outstanding! Super band!

We hired Ruby and the Dukes for a corporate event held at Strand Palace Hotel last week and they were wonderful to work with. Mac was efficient and assisted with ideas on sets for the evening. On the day they were wonderful and we have many compliments on the evening all thanks to the musicians. Thanks for making the event run smoothly with little to no stress. I hope to work with you all again soon. Kelly

Only one v minor quibble - Ruby forgot to change 64 in "will you still love me" to 84! Otherwise all excellent.

"We hired Ruby & the Dukes to play at our wedding in September and they were amazing. They put on a great show, adding our first dance into their set list and contributed to a great evening atmosphere at the wedding. We know that our guests really enjoyed their performance and some have already recommended them to others."

We just loved this band at Home Farm . The dance floor was full and they created a great atmosphere for a wedding in the country . Hopefully they will come this way again - Sue Harrison, Home Farm Events - https://www.homefarmevents.co.uk/
