I booked Samantha for my 40th birthday party and wow, I’m so pleased I did. Samantha had great communication in the run up to the night, helped with playlists and ensured everything would work on the night in advance. Then on the actual night, Samantha was fantastic. She got the party started and created the exact vibe I was looking for - playing her drums and percussion over songs that everyone loved dancing to. It brought a different dynamic to just having a playlist or dj and everyone was really impressed. Her main aim was to ensure I had the best time - which I did - with her help! Would highly recommend Samantha

We were so pleased with the performance this past Saturday evening at our private party in lieu of our wedding. She was great in the lead up to the day and kept everything seamless.
