“The band were amazing. They made the perfect party atmosphere. Everyone after told us how good the band were. The dancefloor was never empty. There was lots of communication before the night to make sure they could deliver us the perfect night. They had everyone up dancing and got everyone singing along. It was a shame it had to end. Highly recommended.”

Superb Band

5 stars - The Connection are Highly Recommended booked The Connection for their event in Surrey

“We had The Connection perform at our event this weekend. A fundraiser for our sports club, they got the crowd up, dancing and in the party mood and the dance floor was full all night. I would highly recommend them and if we have another event, would certainly look to use them again. After the event, everyone was really complimentary of the bands performance.”
