I booked Sarah and Ben to play at my 40th Birthday Party. They are the perfect duo. Sarah has the most beautiful, versatile voice and Ben is an extremely talented acoustic and electric guitarist, together they are incredible. We chatted beforehand so that they could get a good feeling for the type of music I wanted which ranged from 80’s cheese to modern chart hits. They delivered a fantastic playlist and created a wonderful atmosphere for the party over three live sets and a music playlist in between. It was so wonderful to be able to dance to music again. Highly recommended for anyone looking to Party like it’s 2019! Huge thanks to Sarah and Ben xx

Just returned home after the most amazing two weeks in Mallorca where I was honoured to hear the music from Sarah and Ben for the first time (it won’t be last either!). Their music is beautiful and we looked forward to hearing it every evening. Sarah and Ben sung and played a requested song, which meant so much to us, you guys did it justice and we can’t thank you enough. Sarah is one very talented singer and Ben is an incredible musician. You are both stars and you made the holiday one to remember. Not only were they amazing entertainment (a 10 out of 10 from me) but they were very lovely people who are now my friends. I can’t wait to hear them play again. You guys are fabulous and you both have an incredible future ahead of you.

From the moment my wife and I first heard Sarah and Ben on our cruise on Britannia we fell in love with their music. Sarah's voice has a gorgeous tone and pure quality. Ben's playing is brilliant such a variety of material. I bought one of their CD's after their set and we got talking and they are a really lovely genuine couple. They became our go to evening entertainment.
