Really fabulous. Their music had all our wedding guests on the dance floor and they had real charisma. Before the wedding, the band leader was really helpful and talked us through our music choices, the timing of sets and all those little details that we wouldn't have thought of. Many guests complimented us on our wonderful band and we would like to say a massive thank you for really helping to make our special day so memorable. I would definitely say they were a great choice for a wedding band because they had both the older and younger generations on the dance floor, which a disco/DJ just won't do.

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.
