The night was a fantastic success

“The band were excellent. They performed a great mixture of music traditional, old and new which made for a great party. We were able to choose a good selection of music from the setlist. We also asked for a number of songs that meant a lot to our mum - the band learnt and played them on the night. They also provided backing for a a close family friend who sang a song for the whole family. The night was a fantastic success and we have several compliments on the band and the set that they played. I wouldn't hesitate to book the band again for a special occasion.”
