My fiancee only gave me one job to take care of for our wedding - "sort out a band". Thank god I contacted these guys, as they gave us everything we wanted for our wedding day and then some. They played classy, instrumental, atmospheric background music in the afternoon while we had our dinner and then turned it up for the evening do, playing all the Rock/Pop classics we had requested. The musicians and their sound team were extremely approachable and totally professional throughout, and lets not forget these guys can seriously play. They were quite simply the best function band I have ever seen, by a country mile, and if the amount of compliments we received from our guests afterwards is anything to go by, 130 other people agreed with us. Thank you, Lee & Paula Appleton
Such a great band. Thank you for the amazing entertainment you provided for our party. Will Recommend you to EVERYONE. Having the chance to pick our own songs was such a bonus” Steve Niklac
What a party.....What a band... Thanks for a great night guys Linda Butler
I saw these guys performing at my sons wedding and I was so impressed that I just had to have them play at my birthday party.
They were so professional and played all the Motown requests that I wanted. I thought it was such a great idea that the band gave me the option to pick my own songs. I can’t recommend them highly enough and everyone that came to my party loved them just as much as I did. So, if you’re needing a great band who play what you want then definitely get in touch with them and I’m sure they’ll sort out everything you need. Thanks again guys for a great night and see you same time next year for another amazing party!!!! Graham Appleton

Thank you soooooooooooo much for everything you done in the build up to the wedding and for putting on such a great nights music on the most perfect day ever!!!!
You really did provide us with everything we could have hoped for and more. From the pianist playing for the guests arriving and for our ceremony to the band playing three wonderful sets that kept us dancing all night.
We cant stop talking about how helpful, professional and more importantly, how good musically you all were. All our friends said the same thing. Thank you again, Craig & Helena
