5 stars - The Matt Thomas Big Band are Highly Recommended booked The Matt Thomas Big Band for their event

“Russell Shaun and his band turned up to our wedding venue early and were set up and ready when our evening guests started to arrive. They were all very smartly dressed. Russell accommodated us well by setting up and playing our first dance song with out any problems. Russell's performance's was fantastic, his voice was amazing, we had a lot of compliments about the group and would not hesitate to book them again. A big thank you to Russell Shaun and his band for making our evening just perfect, and Alive Network for making it so easy to book. Would highly recommend both to anyone!”
