Testimonials

Great band and very entertaining and dance friendly . We hope you get many bookings this winter

-Mick and Di


Absolutely brilliant band! They really got the party going and had everyone up and dancing all night long! They had a great repertoire and also knew and played every request too. Everyone at the party has raved about the band! We'll be recommending them to people for future events. Thanks so much for a top night!

-Annie and Jon

Thank you for playing at our Wedding. We have received so many comments from our guests saying how much they enjoyed the personal touch. Especially a big thank you for learning the song for our first dance. You were definitely one of the best decisions we made for our day which was enjoyed by everyone. We will no doubt be calling on you again for our next party and will of course be passing your details on to our friends and family. Look forward to seeing you again soon – Lisa & David Stuart X

Just to say how absolutely delighted we all were that you played for Tarka's 21st at Kings Cliffe. No performance could have been better received and you hit the spot repeatedly throughout the evening and morning !! Again our kindest thanks. We shall hope to see you many times in the future as we all pass through life.

Belated thanks for a great night’s entertainment – really made Rachel’s birthday. Great reports from everybody at the party and the singalong in the kitchen was a lot of fun. Hope to see you again soon – Ed and Rachel

Really pleased that I booked you in the Welly on Saturday. As you know, I thoroughly enjoyed your 2 sets. I like the way you cover rather than copy songs and your pretty unique set-up gives a new twist to lots of numbers. And your levels are, I think, just right for a pub atmosphere. Keep it up - Pub Landlord

Highlights
