Trading with Craig are a very good band who played the music that I, the organiser, asked for. Musically they were very good indeed and as people you couldn't ask for better.

I booked Wesley to play at a Bar Mitzvah and I can’t say enough good things about him. He is professional and organised, plus a genuinely friendly guy. He’s a great sax player and really energetic on stage, which helped get the room dancing.
