The Burning were an absolute delight to hire. Contact and confirmation was prompt and friendly - they booked in with no trouble and arranged a special set to suit the needs of our unusual audience. On the night, the band performed spectacularly, and held our crowd's attention, filling up the festival's biggest venue and getting everyone moving and singing along. We received loads of positive feedback from guests and staff about the quality of the music and the entertainment factor of the show. I would definitely hire the Burning Shoes again - and would recommend them to anyone looking for a lively covers band to really make an impact at your event.

Jose was an absolute pleasure to deal with and the band performed fantastically. Everybody at our event said how impressed they were with the professionalism of the band, many saying the band was the high-light of the evening and would book the band themselves for weddings, etc!
We asked the band to play a few requests and picked a range of songs from their current repertoire, which was a great mix of songs for everyone to enjoy.
Thank you for being sensitive to the occasion - it was a charity event commemorating what would have been my late Father's birthday - and this was something very much considered.
The band are extremely dynamic and although the listed singer could not attend the date of our event, singer Guilia is incredible and we couldn't have been happier!
We'd love to invite the band back to any future celebrations with hold.
100% recommend these fantastic musicians for any occasion.
HUGE THANKS and all the best,
Nicola & Family, May 2018

"Hi Jose thank you so much for Saturday, everyone loved your music last Saturday the 12th of May and I think you might have a few future booking coming your way. Thank you once again it was a great event and great music. Thanks"
