A huge thank you to the quartet who played at Ickworth on Saturday night. They were helpful, courteous, professional and very talented. It was wonderful to watch and listen to them at work. Please pass on our thanks to all four of them. Thank you for also making the booking process so smooth and easy. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

The band was fantastic, completely making the evening for us. It was great to have a fun, young group of talented guys who really seemed to want to be there. I can't wait to have them back for our next event; I would like to think it could become something of a tradition.

Thank you for performing so well at my wife's 'big birthday party' recently, your excellent music added a great deal to the occasion. It was a long evening and for you to play so many sets with such untiring enthusiasm were itself very impressive. In brief we couldn't have asked for anything better, and would recommend you to anyone.
