We booked Meg and Ben for a 50th birthday party we had in our garden in September. They were awesome! Meg has such a lovely voice and they make a really great sound together. They really got the party going and lots of people got up and had a dance. They're both super chilled and lovely as well so highly recommend them. Thanks Meg and Ben!

They're a pleasure to watch perform as they always deliver, always impress, and will always be welcome back again. Guests love them, we love them, and you'll love them too.” - The One O’Clock Gun (Liverpool)
