They have rocked students at annual balls up and down the country. They have entertained celebrities, armed forces, politicians, corporate and private clients giving them a show they will never forget. The one thing these clients have all enjoyed is perhaps THE liveliest show on the entertainment scene.

Guys, can i just say the biggest possible thankyou for playing at our wedding.
We were so thrilled when we finally managed to book you after trying to get you for months and without a doubt you made our perfect day all the more special. I just wanted to pass on how fantastic everybody said you were and the new 2009/2010 show is the best ever. The video is great and everybody commented on how polite and professional you all were, not to mention how authentic sounding all the fab new material is. My favourites were the eagles, take that and kings of leon!
We cant thank you enough for learning our wedding dance, it was truly unforgettable and take thats 'rule the world' sounded better than we ever could have hoped for! We worked out that you had 17 enquiries for bookings that night and we are now trying to think of an excuse to book you again!
Once again thankyou for learning the songs we asked for and for making our day so unforgettable. We will be reccomending you to all our friends in the future. You guys are FABULOUS!
Best wishes, SARAH & GREG
Dear Glenn and boys,
A quick note to say thankyou for an exceptional performance at our wedding. Everyone was HUGELY impressed by the show & the music and we thoroughly enjoyed your 2 sets immensely. Even the old folks commented positively. So many people asked us where we had found you from. You handled the cramped conditions very professionally and the mix and volume was just right for the venue. (several of the non wedding residents also said how much they enjoyed the music and we gave out all 50 of your cards that night. Im sure you already know that the venue want you for their resident wedding/function band too according to the manager! Cant thank you all enough for all your help making our day so special and 'Chasing Cars' by Snow Patrol was just AMAZING. We will definately be booking you again soon, you got it spot on! So thanks again and best wishes for 2010.
