The Royal Piano Show were incredible and really made our office Christmas party! Communication with Paul from the outset was prompt and easy and from the moment they arrived at our venue were professional, friendly and energetic. Their performance was brilliant and surpassed all of my expectations! They got everyone up and dancing and we absolutely loved the interactive song request aspect which meant everyone could have their favourite song played. My only regret is that I didn’t book them last year as well! Thank you so much guys.

We could not recommend this band more! They played our wedding last night and almost every single guest came up to us to express how much they loved the band. Multiple people also went out of their way to let us know they were by far the best band they'd ever seen at a wedding. We wanted to ensure that our guests were all up dancing the night away and the ability for them to request songs really helped ensure the dance floor was full all night. Not only are they incredibly talented musicians, they are so kind and exactly the sort of people you want around you on your wedding day to ensure you are feeling calm and having fun. They also went above and beyond throughout the day - ensuring there was music playing throughout the meal, hyping us up whenever they saw us during the day and even capturing some gorgeous candid moments of us.

Lara, Paul and their band were INCREDIBLE! They were the best wedding or event band I've ever come across and we are so glad that we chose them for our wedding. They kept the dancefloor popping all night long and there were always at least 30 people dancing at any given moment. Both Lara and Paul are amazing singers and musicians and they know how to keep a party going strong!

The Royal Piano Show were professional, lively, fun and very talented. Our guests were really impressed and thoroughly enjoyed every song. One of our guests even wanted to get hold of a recording of their version of a song he liked, asking for a YouTube channel! They tailored their set to our tastes after we gave an idea of what music we liked and the guests loved requesting there favourite songs through out the night. I would recommend Lara & Paul 100%, you won't be disappointed”
