“Picking a live band is never easy. There are so many to choose from and will they be a highlight of the day or a disappointment? As important, with everything else on the to do list, how simply will they be to organise? Look no further - they are brilliant on all fronts. Graham was a delight to deal with and we sorted out all of the details quickly and efficiently. The band turned up, set up and made the evening -including a fantastic light show. The dance floor was full all night and everyone agreed that the music was fantastic! Make your life easy ? give them a call then enjoy all the compliments that follow for a job well done. ?

We have had so many compliments from guests on the band; the choice of songs, the length of time they played and the fact the dancefloor was on fire all night.
