“Definitely one of the best live bands that I have heard in the last five years” – M Beardall Daily Mail Weekend Magazine

“On behalf of ECVO and everyone at the London 2014 meeting, a huge thank you to you and the band for such a great performance at our Friday conference dinner at Shakespeare’s Underglobe in London. The band was amazing and we all had such a great time – it was a record for ECVO for getting so many people up on the dance floor so early on.  Thank you all, on behalf of us all, for such a great evening” – ECVO (European College of Veterinary Opthalmologists)

“I wanted to email and say a HUGE thank you firstly for last night and also for being a pleasure to deal with.   You guys were quite simply stunning. Every song choice was pitched perfectly and the kick line ending was the best possible ending. The amount of people on the dance floor from the very first song (before the meal even finished) to the very last was all you needed to see to show how much people enjoyed it. I had so many compliments about the choice of band.  I would recommend you guys in a heart beat as I’m sure every person there last night would. ” – Becky on behalf of Horsham Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society (HAODS)

“I just want to say a BIG thankyou for your part in making our wedding such a great day. We have had so much good feed back about the music that I felt that I had to pass it on. You were all GREAT.

“We just wanted to send you an email to say thank you for your wonderful performance at our wedding on 23 June.
All of the guests were so impressed by both the band, and the saxophonist, they really are a talented (and fun!) group who made our wedding day even more special.” – Charlotte and Matthew London

“Thank you so much for an absolutely stunning performance on Saturday at our wedding. As you saw, the floor was full for the entire evening. You should have heard the buzz that went round the “quiet rooms” when you came back from your breaks as people rushed back to get on the floor. We had a great time, as did all our guests who were amazed at how wonderful you were. You had the perfect mix of music for the wide age range. The elderly aunts in their 80s as well as the teenagers , not to mention those of us in between, were all enjoying the music and up dancing throughout.” – Susan and Peter West Sussex

“A heartfelt, hugh thank you to  you all for the wonderful way you played at Wiston House when we celebrated our Ruby Wedding.

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. All our guests said how amazing you were and we would echo this. You are great performers and put on a really fantastic show. Our main concern when selecting the evening entertainment was to pick a band and music that would be to all our guests tastes – no concerns there, everyone loved singing along and the dancefloor filled up very quickly!  Special thank you to Stuart for choreographing our wedding dance. We really enjoyed doing this and without Stuart we would have relented to doing the usual ‘shuffle’! Thanks and good luck to you all in the future” – Zoe & James West Sussex
