“Just a quick note to thank you and the band for a fantastic night on the 30th of March. We had a great night and it was a really good focal point having you guys provide such quality entertainment. Cheers, and I would have no hesitation in recommending you in future.”


“Just wanted to say thanks so much you guys were amazing, we got so many comments on how you were by far the best covers band we ever heard. We have passed your details onto 3 of our engaged friends so far and I'm sure 2 of them will definitely be in touch. Your version of "All I Want Is You" was so good I think I liked it better than the original lol, speaking of which I don't suppose you guys ever record your stuff? If you had a copy of that cover we would be very keen to buy it of you? Once again thanks so much I was so stoked you guys truly were incredible. Oh and thanks so much for letting Steve play with you for a song, it meant a lot to me. Please pass my thanks on to the rest of the band!”


“Lots of positive comments back regarding the band from the thank you emails from our guests today as well. The band was great thanks. Lots of excellent comments from our guests and I was very happy. I thought they may have a second break but they had such a great energy going I think they decided just to push through playing and the energy levels kept going till the end.”
