Wedding Band- fabulous

We booked these guys for our Wedding back in 2021. They were absolutely amazing. They played a range of music for all ages and really got our party started. Our wedding was postponed 4 times due to covid and Luke and the Band couldn't have helped us more when we eventually got to celebrate with our friends and family. We didn't want the night to end and that was down to the entertainment.
