Rob and Helen

We wanted a band that could perform a range of songs for our wedding reception with something for everyone and we were delighted with The band. Not only were they friendly, professional and had a fantastic sound but they also learnt our first dance song and ensured that we were happy throughout the evening. We had lots of great comments from our guests and would definitely recommend The Band to anyone looking for a band for any event.
