Will Blake and his band are incredible!! I booked them during lockdown without seeing them live and was not at all disappointed. They played at my Mum and my joint 40th/70th birthday party, playing a range of dance floor fillers to appeal across the ages. They are very talented musicians and performers. Party bands can sometimes be a little karaoke-ish or cheesey but these guys made the songs their own and were amazing in their own right. They were fun and energetic and also really lovely people, friendly, relaxed and flexible. I would highly recommend to book them!!

Hi Will, Didn't get a chance to say goodbye Saturday evening after your set, but we wanted to say a big thank you for the fantastic music you & the band played at the church and venue. I think you playing the church hymns on the piano was particularity good as it made them slightly less formal & they had a bit more 'bounce'! Everyone had a great time and a number of people made it on to the dance floor that haven't danced in a while so we can only put it down to the band! Hope you & the rest of the band got home ok. No doubt you are on to the next place you are performing by now but hopefully we will see you again soon. Many thanks, Sam & Alicia
