The Stray Horns came to play for our Christmas market and they were brilliant. Great repertoire, really got the crowd involved, and just generally lovely to work with as well. Will book again as soon as the next event comes up!

The Stray Horns performed at our wedding in Liverpool and it was one of the best moments of our day. We had a church wedding and the band burst in as a big surprise to 'Can't take my eyes off you' Frankie Valley! It was amazing the whole church were up dancing. It was more than we could have imagined and set the atmosphere and mood for the day. The band are so fun and cool and got everyone in the best mood. It was so uplifting. I wish we could do it all again. Will never forget it. Absolutely amazing. The best horn band ever. Thank you so so much guys! Xx
