'Just to say a massive thank you for playing at my leaving do in July, you were absolutely brilliant and I can’t thank you enough for setting up as quickly as you did!  I’ve had so many people commenting on how good you were as well and it honestly makes such a difference.  You had us all dancing and surprising us with your whole alchemised songs! The soul version of Radiohead was amazing!'

'Thank you guys sooooooo much for your AMAZING sets at the wedding. Your set list was perfect and everyone was talking about you the next day. 2 friends have already recommended you to friends having events and weddings! We took a minute during one of your songs to stand at the back and watching everyone dancing with you guys under the tree, absolutely magical! Thank you so much' - Michelle Darby

They performed for a corporate event where we wanted relaxed (but upbeat) music played at a volume that created a great atmosphere whilst enabling our guests to talk and they managed this perfectly. all really pleasant, personal and professional. I would definitely recommend and rebook.' - Cath Dutton from Cumbria Tourism Awards
