5 stars - MYM are Highly Recommended booked MYM for their event

“MYM were absolutely FANTASTIC....! My guests adored them, the music was fantastic, the band enjoyed themselves, everyone danced. It was a great night, the band played longer than they were booked for, my guys just kept applauding them back on. I was concerned that we were indoors as the weather turned and left it too cold to hold outside – but they were brilliant, they tucked themselves into a corner and played just the right sound level for all us oldies..! Please pass on my grateful thanks to Richard and the Boys, I know that they will get work from my Spanish friends who were at the party. If there is Message Board anywhere that I can leave comments please let me know. They were great. Thanks, Tom ”

5 stars - MYM are Highly Recommended booked MYM for their event

“Paul Unfortunately I was not able to see the group but I have heard very good reports from a number of sources, some of which are often more discerning (ie harder to please than some people - so they did even better!). Graham or other might be able to give you more specific feedback. The PA Guys really liked them too if that helps. Thanks for a very professional set up. Cheers, Neil”
