Hi Ben, we just wanted to send you a note to thank you and the band for a great performance on Saturday night. We really hoped that having a live band would take the entertainment to a new level and you guys certainly didn’t disappoint. You absolutely nailed the opening track for us too for our first dance.! The feedback from our guests has been equally complimentary and they all had a great time…so thank you again.

We hired the The Cheers Band for our Captains' Drive-In at Burhill Golf Club on 23 Feb 2020. Previously, we used them at our daughter's wedding. They had everyone on the dance floor, all night - young and old. People loved the band! They personalise the songs that they play to what you want and what will suit the crowd. They are prompt with the booking process, and they arrive on time. Their equipment and lighting produce a high quality sound and atmosphere. Thank you for another wonderful evening and performance!
