Can't recommend these guys enough! In the run up to the wedding communication was fab and we were really impressed with their set list. Due to covid we couldn't go and see the band live, so we were going off their videos which, as good as they are, still don't do them justice! They had everyone dancing throughout the night, their energy and song choices were spot on! We have had so many people message us to say how good they were and how much they enjoyed them. Thanks guys, you really made our wedding party!! Xx

Fantastic band. Played at our wedding in Little Neston on 16th July and smashed it. Really contributed to the atmosphere at our party. Got the audience rocking and everyone commented on how good they were. We highly recommend them to anyone who’s taste in music is similar to ours. Also, communicated really well as we made the arrangements in the run-up to our big day, special thanks to Nic for this. Thanks again guys for your contribution to a special night. Mark & Becky.
