I just wanted to say a HUGE Thank You to you all for playing at our wedding on Sunday night. It really did make the night very special, you were amazing and we have had nothing but great comments from all of our guests. It was brilliant to see everyone up dancing and filling the dance floor. I have recommended you to all the other prospective Brides & Grooms at the Wellbeing Farm so hopefully, you may get some more bookings from them. Thank you again and hopefully, we will get to see you perform again in the future.

Nicola & Anthony

Just wanted to say thank you to you and the boys for a brilliant time on Saturday – I am getting texts all day long saying that everyone loved it!!! I think the music surpassed all of our expectations, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you. We wish you well and hope to see you again sometime. Thanks for a brilliant performance, it made the night.
