Thank you to Fiona and the band, you were amazing, lots of communication with me before the big day, and played a great range of music to ensure a brilliant night for my dads 80 th Birthday. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking to book a band

From other customers:


Great energy from all band members especially Gavin on lead guitar


MMC with the effervescent Fiona who can always put me in a great mood (even if she's singing a sad song)
