  • "The most fantastic evening"
    on 27 November 2017

    James and I would like to thank you for the most fantastic evening we had at our wedding, you were simply brilliant. Everyone from my 90 year grandmother a 4 year little girl loving the opportunity you gave her to sing was just lovely; the music spanning all generations. Everyone of our guests commented on how talented and how great the music was and how much they enjoyed themselves. You made a very special day even more special, everyone dancing "all night long" !!!

  • "Brilliant from start to finish"
    Adam and Laura on 27 November 2017

    Geoff has been brilliant from start to finish. For what is a highly stressful occasion to organise (our wedding), Geoff made this part of the whole experience seamless and enjoyable. He was always on hand to answer our many questions, emails and phone calls and did so with great enthusiasm and support. The band were amazing, hugely talented and extremely enthusiastic, which is exactly what you need on the most important day of your life. Thank you so much.
