First Fall Acoustic was just amazing! Perfect fit with the International Jazz Day event. Our students loved the band. Beautiful voice and excellent instrumental skills impressed the audience. Moreover, Karen was open to any suggestions and ready to discuss the event details what made the evening even better. Would definitely book again.

Lucasz Telega, The Venue, Storthes Hall Park, Huddersfield (30/04/2018)

Thank you for a fantastic gig at the Insignio social event. Managers of the University Arms kept asking who you were since you sounded so great. I really liked that apart from playing your own songs, you did covers as well. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and other pubs.
