Awesome band! I've had so many comments on how good the music was at our wedding. They even learnt some special songs of us. Good price too. Thank you so much, we recommend them! xx

We originally booked the guys under their old band name Kingson, but theyve got a new singer since. The new singer is fantastic and it's great how all the band sing. Nice guys too and funny. Highly reccomend!
