Testimonials

“Just a short note from myself and my wife to say a huge thank you to you and your band for helping make our wedding day, such a spectacular success. We thought it was all brilliant and the music and ambience you and your band created was just perfect. As hoped for, there were some great dance tracks too, in fact, floor space became quite chaotic at times, and everybody has fed back how much they enjoyed the music, the singing and the change in tempo from mellow jazz to dance tunes. Thanks for working with us on helping make our day, such a wonderful occasion, one that we will cherish for the rest of our lives”. Howard
