"If you love music, and have soul, then this is your band. They bring a big sound that invigorates all ages and remind us all of the true meaning for the word FUN. My wife and I were fortunate enough to come across this band in our search for something special to have at our wedding this past July. They were not only very attentive to my emails and questions, but also extremely accommodating with our needs and the requirements of the venue we had selected. It was a seamless transition between the Wedding Breakfast and the Evening Do and the band handled that with great professionalism. My wedding was the greatest day ever and it would not have been as memorable if I had gone with any other band. I can not thank them enough for all they did in helping to make the event a day that we will always talk about and think on with the fondest memories. Thank you!"

Shawn & Hannah (JULY 14)

"They were absolutely perfect for our wedding, there wasn't a space on the dance floor throughout their sets. Every song was a total hit and we have been receiving compliments ever since the wedding -and even friends wanting to book them for their weddings. Their music even had the Caterers and bar staff up dancing!! Plus uncle Nigel leading a conga line with a piñata hat on was a truly memorable moment! Our first dance was phenomenal particularly as it was an odd request (Nina Simone mixed with Toots and the Maytals) but they sang it with pitch and style perfection! We absolutely loved having a female lead singer as it gave the band the total edge above the usual Jive and Swing bands!!"

Beccy Hayes (JULY 2014)

"The band were absolutely fantastic! Claire the vocalist was superb, and every guest commented on how great whole band was. They created a wonderful atmosphere and ambience in the sunshine for our wedding guests to relax to. Sam was very professional before and after the event checking what sort of music we wanted and our exact requirements, and then ensuring we were happy with the outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend this band for any event and I will be using them for any future event I can!"

KELLY SMITH (OCTOBER 2013)

"This mail is just to say a massive thank you for the music for our wedding! It was truly amazing! The tunes were unreal and we loved it all! I still have my friends and family raving on how good the music was on the night! You were all lovely and very professional too. You were always quick to respond to our ideas and appreciate the time you took in making our day extra special. Thank you so much for playing our first dance in which you had to rehearse too as it wasn't on your playlist! Really wish the best for you and all the successes that come your way! Thank you once again!"

EMMA RAW (AUGUST 2013)

"I was a little sceptical about having a live band at all 6 of my events, but you added a tremendous new energy. It's hard now to imagine the events running so well without you. I will definitely keep them in mind for future events and will share your details with some colleagues. Do keep in touch! Drew"

DREW MACMILLAN – INTERNAL COMMUNICATIONS & CULTURE DIRECTOR LADBROKES

"You guys are fantastic, unbelievably fresh and something everybody should have in their collection."

Andy Winfield – One Two Productions

"I really like the sound of your tracks. The arrangements are tight with high energy."

Tony Shepphard – GlosJazz

"They were one of the highlights of our summer dance. Their line up was great and the music they played had everyone dancing and tapping their feet. I would recommend them in a heartbeat!"
