Excellent in every aspect. Paul was quick to reply and very helpful before the event. The band arrived and set up efficiently prior to the event. Most importantly they are an amazing band - perfect for our Alice In Wonderland event and kept everyone on the dance floor until the very last song. Thank you so much all of you, everyone loved the music.

Paul oorked with us from the beginning to make sure we gave my wife the best party possible. Great song choice that got people up onto the dance floor from the off. Really interacted and everyone commented on how great they were. Two sets and music playlist in between. Absolutely brilliant. Made the whole evening.

We went along to the free friends and family gig last weekend and what a pleasure it turned out to be! The band played really well known songs, past and present which had everybody up dancing all night. The music was good but the two leading ladies stole the show . . . both great singers and a joy to listen to. Don’t hesitate to book this band if you want a feel good event!
