The Boardwalk Duo really know how to entertain!
Right from the get go, Mike and Chris were so down to earth and approachable, their booking process was super easy and they were more than happy for us to contact them whenever with questions about our wedding day and advice. On the day itself they were the perfect suppliers because they allowed us to enjoy the day without us stressing about timings etc. They were so well prepared, for every eventuality! We'd seen the duo perform at another event previously so we knew they'd put on a good show but WOW they really pulled out all the stops for our wedding! They blew our guests away with their incredible voices and ability to get everyone involved. Their DJ package is well worth adding on too otherwise the atmosphere would have disappeared between their incredible live sets!Sent on 27/07/2020
Thank you both again so much for making our Wedding Day so special and so rememberable, not only for us but for our guests too!

Fantastic Live Performance!
Mike & Chris were exactly what we wanted for our wedding entertainment.
Leading up to the day they were so helpful & friendly in asking us exactly what we wanted, the booking process was straightforward & easy. I loved the fact they FaceTime you to find out who we are as a couple & what we want/expected from the day.
We wanted a song playing in tribute to my nan & they went above & beyond learning to play the song & placing it at the perfect time in their set.
We went for the top tier package & it was excellent from start to finish.
They took all the stress away from us worrying with timings & their professionalism was outstanding.
We loved having the live performances and then the DJ set as they were seamless in the set up with no awkward waiting around like I’ve seen at some weddings.
Thank you Boardwalk Duo for making our wedding one to remember, everyone loved the music and everyone (including my mum!) was up dancing all night.
I can’t recommend them highly enough.

The Boardwalk Duo
We booked The Boardwalk duo for our wedding day and it was without a doubt the best decision we made! Amazing voices, harmonies and musically talented, they got everyone up from start to finish (even my sister who doesn’t usually dance!)Sent on 27/07/2020
They made the whole organisation stress free leading up to the day and even arranged a meeting to fit our needs.
They both went above and beyond for us even learning a song for us to walk down the aisle.
They made me and my husband feel relaxed, and we would definitely book them for any event we have again.
Thank you for making our day perfect, couldn’t recommend them enough.
The Boardwalk Duo's reply:Thanks for such a lovely review Coral! We had a great time performing for you both!
