I found The Alchemists performance brilliant! They kept the party going all night long. Their professionalism both on and off stage was much appreciated. Thanks, guys for all your work in making my 40th birthday party a success.

We hired The Alchemists for our wedding party and they were phenomenal. They're incredibly talented and had everyone on their feet loving their lives from the first song. They were so good that people were even trying to dance during their sound checks! Their customer service was excellent from day one and the whole band are lovely, lovely people. We've had so many of our guests commenting on how amazing they were, not just in their performance, but also in their vintage, quirky music style. They were everything that we wanted for our special day and we couldn't recommend them enough. Thanks so much guys! Hannah & Jon
