Fantastic duo of musicians - super communicative, friendly and played a fabulous set

Robin and Jack were fantastic - super communicative, friendly and played a fabulous set. Two very talented musicians!

They read the room very well and set a great tone for the evening which really facilitated the event. We had positive feedback from attendees who enjoyed the range of songs played and the upbeat atmosphere created by the live music. Throughout the booking process and event, they were flexible and professional in accommodating our requests.
