“Having performed a fantastic set at our wedding celebrations some years ago, we did not hesitate in booking them for our special send off to a new life in Thailand. This time we booked the 10 piece and boy was that a good move! Absolutely fabulous musicianship and vocals. A totally professional and genuinely great bunch of outstanding performers with real talent. The set was tight, the musical selection – spot on! Friends and family loved it and boy did we all swing and dance. Incredible! Thanks!! Priceless memories. Totally unforgettable evening.”

“We just wanted to write a short note to thank you and your band for playing at our wedding … The dancefloor was never empty and we had so many compliments from our guests who also thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The music you performed so spectacularly and your sense of fun made a magical end to what was a wonderful day. We couldn’t have asked for anything more so thank you. We hope to be able to come and hear you play again … in the not too distant future.”
