Best D

Thank you for agreeing to play at our wedding and for all your help through out the process. You have been fantastic and made things very easy for us

Mr O

We just wanted to pass on our thanks and gratitude to the band for helping to make our wedding day so special. You guys were great on the night and everyone commented on how much fun they had on the night, especially during the ceilidh music (you guys were extremely patient..!!). And our first song could not have gone any better, we both really appreciated that you took the time to learn the song and we thought that overall performance was excellent on the night! Thanks again!
