“When I spoke to people on Monday about the ball, the main thing that kept on coming up was how great the band were. I think your lead singer has developed quite a fan club down here in Tidworth. It was a fantastic evening, and your band really provided great entertainment for us all.  Please pass on my best to the rest of the musicians. You really know how to make a party and play great music. I have already had people asking me for your details. All the best to you and your band. Many thanks Henry (Officers Mess Ball )”

You were great at involving everyone in the evening and making it a really warm and welcoming performance- exactly perfect for a wedding band. The conga line near the end was just the icing on the cake! We would not hesitate to recommend you, we could not have asked for anything better. ”
