These guys were absolutely brilliant. Professional, talented and charming to boot. One of the best bands any of our guests had ever seen at a wedding. Rob has an incredible voice and Tim and the other guys are top notch musicians and were on the money with every single song. So glad we took a punt and booked them. You will not be disappointed.

These guys did a fantastic job, especially considering there were some unruly guests! They sounded flawless and everyone had such an amazing time dancing and singing along. My only complaint is it was over too quickly! 5/5

We just wanted to say thank you again, you were brilliant and helped make our wedding really special. Everyone had good things to say about you - including all the people sitting around the fire listening from behind the marquee! We had such an amazing day and we're so pleased we booked you. Best wishes Tim and Kate
