Helly and Andy are simply brilliant, one of the highlights of our wedding, every guest said how much they loved them. We both love music and having them play a couple of chilled afternoon sets was perfect, even if we did hog the requests a little, which was not an issue for them :-) Looking for an accommodating, friendly, chilled out but professional band with a great sound? You just found them!

We had booked these guys after seeing them play at a wedding. What amazing people!!! We had booked them for 1 acoustic set, however due to the fact our DJ had not turned up they immediately came to the rescue. Without any hesitation they had left to go and get their leads and lights to finish off our wedding with a bang. Truly gifted musicians and wonderful people. Xx
