Great entery

5 stars - Fire Specialist Vulcan are Highly Recommended
booked Fire Specialist Vulcan for their event in Monmouthshire June 2022

“Elliott arrived in good time to start his set. He was very flexible with our time table when others wanted to change slots. Even when we had a sudden downpour he battled on! Fortunately it didn't last long. The crowd loved him, would definitely book again.”


5 stars - (Lady Gaga) Radio Gaga are Highly Recommended
booked Radio Gaga for their event in Northamptonshire June 2022

“Gaga and her dancers gave an incredible performance that kept the crowd engaged and dancing the whole time. The outfit changes were fantastic and the highlight was her inviting up a couple of women from the local fire service who were fangirling at the front of the stage and got to join in dancing on the stage. she was an absolute dream to have at our Pride event and we would book again in an instant.”


5 stars - Shine On are Highly Recommended
booked Shine On for their Wedding in Northamptonshire June 2022

“Wow. Can we do it all again? From start to finish the band were amazing. Communication up to the event has been concise, quick and efficient, and they’ve been so open to our ideas. Then on the day the band arrived and were set up and ready in no time. Worked directly with the venue and DJ whilst we were otherwise engaged. Then the music started! The range of music they offer will have all of your guests on the dance floor, mine was full and bouncing! Everything they performed was just incredible. They’re the talk amongst my guests still days after! We want to do it all again. A massive massive thank you and id recommend to anyone. BOOK THIS BAND!”

Sisters Are Doing It.

5 stars - Mrs X are Highly Recommended
booked Mrs X for their Wedding in Surrey June 2022

“Mrs X you were amazing. Two great sets full of hits from a Stevie Wonder medley to Mr Brightside. Every one of them performed to perfection with great energy. You were a memorable part of a very special wedding. “We are family” you sang and you felt very much part of our family. You were also on time, totally professional and a joy to work with. Thank you.”
