They looked and sounded fantastic.

5 stars - (Ska) The UK Ska Club are Highly Recommended booked (Ska) The UK Ska Club for their Wedding in Suffolk

“We can not thank the band enough for an amazing evening. The way they conducted themselves was way above our expectations and extremely professional but in a friendly manner. They made us feel very special and their music was superb. The feedback from our guests has all been good and we can honestly say that our wedding day would not have been the same without them! From the moment they arrived (on time!) we knew it was going to be a great night, they put us at ease and just got on with it. They looked and sounded fantastic and we will certainly be recommending them - 10/10! We would also like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their incredible performance and wish them all the very best for a long and successful future.”


The band, all fantastic musicians, were very professional.

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for rockin' my sister-in-law's wedding party! You guys were awesome from the first note - Perfectly read the mood of the evening and got everyone up on the dancefloor, from 4 year olds to 74 year olds!! I'm sorry that my new role as a father didn’t allow me to stay till the end of the evening but what I saw of the first set was electric!! Teaching us the dance moves to King Of The Swingers was a stroke of genius and really helped everyone to lose their inhibitions, let their hair down, and have a great party with you guys. Thanks again... You were awesome : ) Rich - Arist Development Manager @ Alive Network Entertainment Agency ”

“The Alive co-ordinator Clare was fantastic from start to end. She took the stress out of a very hard last minute booking for a very big party. The band arrived on time and were very professional to work with through the whole night. They looked and sounded the part. We had over 700 guests from all different ages who were all very happily entertained with the medlay of old and new classics. Great night! Great entertainment! Would highly recommend. ”
