"Just a quick note to let you know quite how good this band are! They made the evening. Seriously!! Every cover that they did sounded EXACTLY like the real version; the Killers the Strokes etc and they turned our dancefloor into a scene from a festival. Everyone who was there commented that they were extra special and can't believe that they are a wedding band available to hire. Thanks to Alive Network & The Child for making this possible."
- Charlie and Vicky Mansour
