Excellent show. live music is so good after years of just playing tapes by a Dj. They play requests and know a lot of songs old and new very entertaining.

These two are awesome! They made our wedding an amazing party from the first song to the last. We'd seen the concept in Holland and loved the atmosphere it created and thought it would make our wedding a bit different to everyone else’s. Our guests loved it, so much so we've had two other couples ask for their details. Thank you so much, we wish we could do it all over again!
