5 stars - The Brightsides are Highly Recommended booked The Brightsides for their Wedding

“Hi Scott. Wow, wow, wow! What a wonderful performance you gave at our wedding reception. Fantastic song choices from so many different genres and decades which were familiar to everyone. A great party atmosphere when the dance floor was always full. You were so brilliant in performing our first dance and two subsequent surprise dedications from me to Paul. All three are special songs to Paul and I. They sounded amazing and meant such a lot to us. All our guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening and your performance too with nothing but praise for you all. Thank you so very much for playing for us and making our wedding reception so unique and special to us playing so many popular songs in your very special way. The evening is one we and our guests will never forget. With our very sincere best wishes and thanks to you and your band.”

These days Paul can be found in several different function bands including BUDO Big Band, The Sally Army and Doncaster Jazz Orchestra.

This proves very useful in the band where his technical skills are often called upon.
