"Thanks Tim, we all had an excellent day rounded off with a fantastic band. A day to remember for James and Vikki which is just what we all wanted.
Being a family wedding the guest age range was 2 years to 80 years, not easy to please everyone's musical taste but you guys managed it, you did a fantastic job and every comment about the band was more than positive.
Please thank the band for us..Keep us informed if you are gigging at a venue where we can attend.
Regards Andrew & Steph"
