“An excellent, well-rehearsed band, who we hired for our wedding in June. Many favourable comments from our guests. Simon and the guys were very easy and friendly to deal with, both beforehand and on the day. They cover a great repertoire from the early 60s to more-or-less the present day, but crucially stick to songs they know they can do justice to – which are many. So thanks guys; you sent us `rocking` into married life!”
