We are both so glad we were recommended to book POA, you did us proud!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful performance at our wedding reception on Saturday. We were amazed at your superb performance, and although I thought our shy friends and family wouldn't dance, you had us all up on the floor from your first song and everyone kept asking me where I found such a great band! Fabulous music, lovely people, thank you so much!
Leslie & Paul
Thank you all for providing such brilliant music and entertainment at our Christmas Party. You gave us a wonderful performance of retro and modern songs that everybody loved, It was great to see the dance-floor packed, I didn't think our employees would dance like they did (they haven't before!) & I proved what a truly good band you really are! Great vocals, great music, a great night!" Gistworld.com
