Having ever used encore before I was a little worried before the wedding but Mihael & Barbara were absolutely amazing. They were so lovely on the day and super flexible moving around the venue. Everyone loved them and asked for their details at the wedding. They also played and sang me down the aisle and honestly couldn’t have been more perfect, the volume/the vibe/Barbara’s voice. They absolutely nailed it. Would book them again in a heartbeat!

We booked Banana Milkshake for our outdoor champagne reception for our wedding. They completely set the scene and provided an incredible acoustic set. Barbara and Mihael are not only very talented musicians but also friendly and professional. Thank you both for really elevating ours and our guests' wedding experience!!

The Banana Milkshake duo are the absolute dream team! Mihael and Barbara were both so professional and personable. Prior to the event, they were happy to answer any questions, and they completely put my mind at ease on the wedding day. They were on time and ready to go and worked with the venue to get set up with their equipment. The energy they brought to our drinks reception for our wedding was absolutely electric! My guests could not stop raving about them! Barbara and Mihael are beyond talented and compliment each other beautifully. I could not recommend them more!
