What People Say:
Claire and Simon Martin - wedding reception - Hampshire - September 2010
"The band are all amazing musicians and performed spectacularly on the night! They sounded fantastic on the demos, so we knew they'd be good, but we were still blown away hearing them live! They made sure we had the biggest party ever, getting everyone on the dance floor and having so much fun! Especially with Marion's bubbly personality! Everyone was jumping up and down, shaking their hips and generally going for it on the dance floor! The atmosphere was fantastic! They really made our evening reception so special, it's more than we could have wished for! The best wedding party we could have imagined, so thank you so much. We had invested so much time choosing a band and it really paid off. My husband and I are both musicians ourselves and so having a great band for our wedding was a big priority for us. We feel elated, that we found the best band ever! In fact, everyone kept asking about them and saying that they were the best band they'd ever heard!"
