The band were absolutely amazing, got everyone up and dancing and played a brilliant selection of songs. The female singer was fantastic and interacted with all of our guests. Would highly recommend them for many events and I'll definitely be using them again!

Amazing band

After looking around various bands we were so happy that we chose The Shards to play at our wedding. They were amazing. Lynn lead vocal has an amazing voice. They got everyone on their feet all having a fantastic time, playing different types of songs so something for everyone. It made our night even more special.
