Testimonials

"It can be daunting when booking musicians for a party and not being sure of how things will turn out. DO NOT be daunted - look no further! The professionalism of Greg and Paul absolutely MADE our New Year's Eve party at the Badger Bar in Rydal this year. From the start they approached the planning for the evening with enthusiasm and a can-do, helpful attitude. The slightly challenging nature of my pub (two rooms, not one big open space) presented them with a opportunity to play their sets in two different places ensuring everyone felt involved, even encouraging the two rooms to be competitive with the volume of their applause! Their playing and singing is great, but you get so much more than that when booking them - they were involved with the entire evening, helping run the raffle, the quiz, and of course timing the countdown to 2012 to perfection. Above and beyond all the way. Book them if you can!" Rik Still, Glen Rothay Hotel and Badger Bar 01 Jan 12

"Dear Greg & Paul, Just wanted to thank you for playing at my 60th birthday bash on Saturday night. It really added something to the evening, and the chocie of music was just right. We.ve had so many appreciative comments that i am sure you will get some more business from it. Glad to hear you are getting really busy, and will look forward to hearing you again. All the best, Jenny" (Eden valley)

'I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making my 40th such great fun. Everyone thought you guys were amazing and I especially loved your version of 'America' by Razorlight! I hope the voice has recovered Greg and you have had a rest from your busy schedule - I can see why you are so busy, I might have to have you back for a 41st! Take care both of you and have a great Christmas'. Sarah (Keswick)

'It's Like That...' were definitely one of the reasons that the inaugural Greystoke Beer Festival was such a success. Based on the quality of music performed by Greg and Paul we are sure to sell out next year if they are on the bill again. They had people up dancing and really created a brilliant atmosphere with their enthusiasm and energy; they made the whole evening great fun and very memorable. A great accompaniment to real ale tasting! I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for a talented band to play at their event. - Morna Sims - (Greystoke)

"With torrential rain, strong winds and limited visibility threatening to dampen the spirits on our Ullswater steamer, it was amazing to have Greg and Paul on board to save the day. Their skill, enthusiasm and ability to match the music to the mood of the guests worked absolute wonders. From a lovely atmospheric beginning to a sing-a-long crescendo, they created an incredible atmosphere throughout the evening. From my 2 year old nephew to my wife's 92 year old grandfather and everyone in between, the dance floor was full of energy and a real sense of fun. It was important to us to have a great band and 'It's Like That' did not disappoint in the slightest. As two talented musicians and two captivating characters Greg and Paul brought a strong credibility and a very professional approach for which we are very grateful" Joeseph & Zoe Gummett (London)

'It's Like That�' played at our charity Champagne & Canap�' party on the 15th August 2011. They were very professional, entertaining all the guests with 2x 45 minute sets. In the last set everyone was up dancing, they absolutely made the night and we have no reservation in recommending them and will be using them again at any function we organise in the future. See you soon! - Nigel Stephenson (Appleby)

"As a surprise for my best friend, I arranged for It's Like That to sing after the meal on her Hen night. The initial shock caused by the fear that he was a stripper was replaced by pure delight at his rendition of her favourite songs had us all singing along. His final performance of 'Brown eyed girl' to my brown eyed friend was very special. It was the highlight of the night and none of the girls will ever forget it (well maybe a few of them who were on the cherry vodka) Thanks very much guys".
Sally Roythorne (Brampton, Newcastle, and New York)

"We recently had a charity fundraising event for our local village hall and thought we would try and make the occasion a little bit special. We called on the services of 'It's Like That' but never imagined that we would have just about everyone in the room up on their feet dancing!. The night was a huge success thanks to Greg & Paul" Dave Winter - (Bassenthwaite Village)
