"These guys were quite frankly amazing!! Normally I would be looking for fireworks to put under the seats here to get people up, but these guys had them going from track one. Very highly recommended."

"What can I say?
The King B Blues Brothers far exceeded my expectations.
My husband had the best night ever and all our friends and family have commented on the brilliant entertainment.
They were two of the nicest men you could invite to a party and fitted in perfectly with our crowd. They were very accommodating and thoroughly entertaining. No-one was left in the corner during their act and everyone got into the spirit of the night.
I could not praise them enough and would recommend them to anyone looking for a great night."
