Thank you to the Daisy Chains!!!! What an absolutely fantastic band. So happy I decided to book them. I booked them as a surprise for my wifes 40th Birthday and they did not let me down. Firstly, very professional and were in contact constantly right up to the gig to make sure all the details were sorted so I was left feeling confident everything was taken care of before the party. They looked amazing, matching dresses and outfits & even had a costume change mid set. They were loads of fun and got everyone up and dancing no problem. Young & Old. They all played there instruments really well and all sounded amazing. (my mum has probably not danced that much since the 60's) ha ha Top band, lovely girls, amazing night. Cant recommend them enough. If this is a 5 STAR review I'm gonna give them a 6. ****** Thanks again Daisy Chain's.....FANTASTIC Cheers Dave & Lou xxx

Musical R, 4 years ago

Byrne is one of those sickeningly gifted quadruple-threat talents who makes mere mortals feel even more useless than they are, but tap-dancing while playing the saxophone may even have been a new one for her.'

British T, 4 years ago

On Saxophone, Clarinet and Flute, the sensual and quite superb Sophie Byrne brings graceful support to Herman’s harmonies and melodies.
