Freewheel: This band was awesome from the very start until the end. Everyone at my wedding enjoyed themselves, and I can honestly say that these guys made my day. Very professional throughout with great contact, and Connor puts you at ease before the event. I would defiantly recommend this band to anyone. Thanks, fellas, you were brilliant, and I cannot thank you enough. Mark Hughes (My wedding 26th April 2019) 10/10

Indie Rockers: We booked the band for our wedding in June 2019 and they were great. Rather than the standard wedding playlists, it was more along the lines of classic indie rock throughout, without alienating the oldies who were loving it. The dancefloor was packed from the first song. Probably best said from one of our guests: “Awesome night mate. Best wedding music I have ever experienced, and I am old and have experienced loads”. Thanks, guys! Richard (Wedding) 10/10

Indie Three: I Just wanted to say a huge thank you for coming to play last night for us. I loved the music, and I thought you were all great, and it made the summer party really special! James Caan (from BBC 2’s Dragon’s Den), Corporate Event, London, June 2017

Revved Up: Firstly, I want to say a massive thank you. You guys made our night super special. Very professional from start to finish. If you want a party band that will have your guests up dancing from start to finish, with songs for everyone, the band are perfect. An amazing wedding band – thank you. Jen & Adam Aulsebrook

The Maida Vales: played at our staff conference tonight, and they were amazing. Great sound, a great mix of pop-rock and indie dance floor fillers. The dance floor was packed all night. Really nice lads. Highly recommended, and I would definitely hire them again!! #DEBRAConference2018
