The Best!

We wouldn’t have wanted anyone else playing at our wedding.
I had never booked a live band before and was naturally nervous. There was no need to worry as we were in safe hands! Daniel and the team are so accommodating and flexible. Anything is possible!
We provided a playlist and they learnt our first dance song. We had our reception at a country barn in the summer and the band completely set the mood! What more could you want!? The sun setting and light swing & soul. Wish I could live the day all over again and wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Fantastic wedding band!

Really great wedding band. With excellent client attention in the build up to cater to what you really want for the day, you really know that you’ll get the experience you want. Obviously very strong musically too. Would definitely recommend!

Mellow Jazz to High Energy Party Band!

Very impressed that this band could go from mellow jazz at the drinks reception to full on soul band with some amazing rock and roll after dinner. Excellent bunch of musicians. Thanks for your professionalism and tact.

Outstanding

We were absolutely thrilled to have these guys play for us! They mastered Kletzmer music, jazz, contemporary songs and even Sri Lankan Baila! Thanks again for making our day so special.

Such a fun band with maximum variety!

“My brother and I would like to say a huge thank you to the band for providing such fantastic entertainment at our wedding reception. Everyone said how amazing they were and the filled dance floor reflected this! We had to have more tables removed to create a bigger dance floor and make room for everyone on it! Every time we went to have a break, they would come out with another classic that would have us running back to the dance floor. What a brilliant night! We couldn’t have wished for a better band. They were very polite and friendly with a fun and positive attitude. We hope they enjoyed the evening as much as us and our guests. Thank you so much for making our wedding memorable and so much fun!”
