“Thank you so much Maria and the band for playing at my wife Beth's 30th birthday in Leeds on Friday. Many of the guests have been asking after you since then and many were much later home on the night than they planned as they were too busy dancing! The choice of songs, the quality of the playing and vocal - it was all excellent, perfect for the party and made the night that much more special. You were also very friendly and helpful before and after the party and great to have around on the night.  Thank you!”

"The band were fabulous. Everyone enjoyed their set. They got everyone onto the dance floor. We are so glad we booked them. Definitely worth the money. We’ve never booked a band before or been to a wedding with a band so didnt know whether to do so or not. We would certainly re-book or recommend The Iconss. We had a fabulous day and the band certainly helped to make our evening very memorable. They were excellent. Thank you!!"

Having seen Maria perform a stunning set at our annual Jingle Ball, I recently hired the band for a Key 103 listener party and the feedback from all guests was excellent. The selection of songs was spot on and the dance floor was packed, I wish I'd have asked for an extra 1/2 hour!!
