Tim Graham is a highly talented and professional drummer. He played drums for my EP Launch, and was a pleasure to work with at every turn: polite, personable, and a calm disposition, and also really passionate about getting the best result possible for the project. I would happily recommend Tim to anybody, 10/10.

I booked Viewpoint for our wedding and was struck by how professional the group were in both sound and approach. Being a working musician myself, my expectations for my own wedding were fairly high! However, the guys exceeded my expectations. Not only did they come across in a warm manner, they had a good mastery of different material and styles and a good mixture of contemporary hits and classic songs. If you would like your dance floor filled and to help everyone have a great evening whatever the occasion, I would wholeheartedly recommend them to you!
