  • "They are amazing!!!!!!"
    Rachel & Antony on 20 March 2019

    Antony and I have nothing but good things to say about the whole process. The communication from you guys has been brilliant and Totie was just lovely, even calling a few days before to make sure we were happy, if we had any questions and just to reasure us. The band were just outstanding!!!! We were so thrilled they could be part of our day and really made it for us! They made the effort to learn and play our first dance which we will never forget and was one of the 'moments' of the day!! Our guest absolutely loved them and I think we can all say that there were many painful feet the next day! I'm not sure what else to say other than to tahnk you all so very much for making our wedding day so memorable and just amazng! The band were the best thing about our day and I cannot thank you and them enough! They are amazing!!!!!!

  • "A faultless experience"
    Scott F on 20 March 2019

    We were delighted with Gavin’s performance - he has a very soulful voice and he met the brief perfectly in terms of style of music and adjusting to the stages of the evening, ie pitching it right with the background music and later upping the volume/tempo when it was appropriate. Gavin was also very accommodating, easy to work with, looked the part and extremely friendly and courteous. He was a true professional. We were also very grateful and impressed that he managed to learn a special song that he’d never sung before, which was a really nice touch. His performances were excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gavin. In terms of the lead up, I felt that ER Music (you!) handled everything with the utmost professionalism and it was all dealt with very thoroughly. I felt that even though it was a small job, it was still dealt with care and attention to detail. Overall it was a faultless experience. I greatly appreciated the fact that you were able to change the booking last minute because of our personal circumstances, without any trouble or making any charges. I would definitely also recommend ER Music without hesitation based on my experience.
