"The band were superb, they went down really well with our client and were fantastic every night. They were prompt, professional and very talented, should they fit the brief we wouldn’t hesitate to book them again and again. I hope we can work together again soon."

BMW Corporate Event, Liverpool Arena and Conference Centre

"I can honestly say that having the band play at our event was the highlight of our evening. From the moment we contacted them about a quote to the end of the evening they were always happy to work around our needs which took the pain out of the organising! Their flexibility, professional attitude but above all, their fantastic performance was exactly what we were looking for. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any event where you want to provide that 'something special' for your guests."

Sarah Curtis, E-On Uk Corporate Event

"I would like to thank you so much for playing at our wedding! The band were absolutely amazing. Everyone is talking about how great you were. I can't believe how much energy you all put in - even at nearly midnight after two sets with barely a break as far as I recall! You had some of my grumpiest guests up and dancing - and the whole wedding party was humming New York, New York at brunch on Sunday. Not very well it must be mentioned! Please, please pass my thanks to all the band members/ forward the email. I would highly recommend you to anyone planning an event, both for your professional and friendly service, and for your outstanding performance. "
