The Live Notes' Reviews

After previously seeing The Lives Notes at another venue, my wife and I asked them to perform for our wedding in April 2022 From the outset everything was handled professionally. Communication was excellent and they essentually held our hands through the process which certainly helped to alleviate stress our end. On the day we had the L2 duo along side reception drinks which went down a treat with our guests and the 5 piece band for the evening who in turn worked with the venue DJ between sets so everything joined up seamlessly. The atmosphere was fantastic and the band read the room well to adapt their playing to suit what was happening on the dance floor. I couldn't recommend the band anymore. There are certainly no regrets on our side and we're so glad we chose them to perform at our wedding.

We booked the Live Notes for our companies 21st Birthday Party, they were fantastic, so talented and brought an amazing energy to the night. They read the crowd really well and were a pleasure to work with! Would book them again in a heartbeat! Thanks George and band :)
