Reviews

From customers:

Bride, 2 years ago

From the moment they tuned up we knew we were in for a good night and the dance floor was full all night. People who don't usually dance at weddings and parties were dancing and that means the guys were amazing!! I would change nothing about them at all. They were fun and didn't mind a quite drunk dance floor where people may have been a little wobbly and on people's shoulders! Session One were amazing and made our wedding party electric. The musicians were very talented and the singers were great. The dance floor was full from the moment they started until the final note faded. The range of songs were incredible and so good live. I'd like to have another party just to dance to them again.!

Event O, 2 years ago

I wanted to pass on a huge thank you for your professionalism on the night – you arrived on time and did what you needed to do – it was seamless. When I had to ask you to delay the start you were very professional and I’m so very grateful for your easy/relaxed approach. The entertainment itself was really great – you had staff on their feet right from the start and it was really good to see everyone having a great time.
