The Nightingales were booked for a 1940's themed corporate event on the HMS Belfast. Their communication was excellent pre-event and they arrived at the venue as agreed. Their performance was excellent, they were very authentic and the perfect entertainment for our event. We would definitely recommend the Nightingales for any corporate or private event.
The 2 Nightingales are a fantastic act and really helped our D-Day 75th Anniversary celebration evening go with a swing. The girls have wonderful voices and sang a great range of songs from the 1940s era, plus a couple of more modern ones. We had such a great response from our members on the night that Churchills is considering holding an end of WW2 event either next May or September and will definitely be looking to book The 2 Nightingales again.
Good communication prior to event and loved the singing. All went to plan.
Great communication, looked great and sounded perfect. Very happy and would highly recommend.
The Nightingales were professional, friendly and extremely entertaining. We had an audience of approx. 30 guests, who all commented on how fabulous they were. Their voices are truly beautiful and they have an abundance of sophisticated elegance. If your clients are looking for something superior, then The Nightingales are absolutely perfect. The venue had also asked where I found these ladies, because they were the best that they had seen at the Venue. Thank you so much for making our night one to remember!
The Nightingales were excellent and everyone enjoyed their music! Well done!
These girls were quite exceptional! Their performance and appearance was very professional, and enjoyed by all our guests. They arrived in good time and set up quickly, then discreetly withdrew until their show time. It also helped us enormously that they were very flexible about their performances. I would recommend them to anyone. Their voices and harmony were even better than the sound clips would lead you to expect!
They were brilliant. The band made it such a great evening with so many people complimenting on how brilliant they were. Thank you.
Excellent service from start to finish. The Ladies really gave a top performance which was the icing on the cake for our Battle of Britian celebrations. Many thanks.
They were on time and very entertaining to watch. They were very in keeping with our Vintage and Steam show and we will definitely be using them again.
The Two Nightingales joined us to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Warfield Park. The girls were absolutely fantastic from start to finish and we cannot praise them highly enough! We have been inundated with compliments from our residents who all thoroughly enjoyed the girls' performance. Thank you very much for making our afternoon so special!
Everything about the 2 Nightingales was first class. Very professional in everything they did, arrival time, presentation and performance were all exceptional. Would definitely consider the girls for future events.
These girls were just amazing for my husbands surprise 40th birthday. Beautiful voices and song choices, it was in my house and they were just the right level for the neighbourhood. Would book them again in a heartbeat. Well worth every penny.
We felt their singing was super they had very strong voices!
2 Nightingales were absolutely tip top! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their Act and they couldn't do enough to accommodate the wishes of us organisers. I will certainly be using this act again in the future and highly recommend them to others for a night filled with excellent singing and fun.
Totally professional and a pleasure to deal with from booking to performance to pack down. As an organiser it's just so helpful to deal with people that know exactly what they are doing - don't create obstacles and work with you for swift solutions. Added to my view is that of the audience who commented how well the 2 Nightingales sang and how much they enjoyed the performance. I have booked the Nightingales twice - themed differently each time for totally different audiences and age groups and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Superb. These two ladies have a marvellous act and were much appreciated by the lunch party. We thoroughly recommend them . Great fun and great harmonies.
They we terrific and their ability to relate to clients is excellent. I only regret not being able to have listened to them more... but as a joint groom I was running around for pictures!! Well done girls, the guests loved you both.
The 2 Nightingales were a perfect fit and addition to our night! I would highly reccomend!
The ladies were absolutely fantastic, professional and had stunning voices. My Mum was over the moon with them. Definitely would recommend them for any venue.
The feedback received from the guests was EXCELLENT!!!! I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this act!
They were great!
Great performance, professional, friendly and really accommodating. We will definitely use them again.
Used the 2 Nightingales at three of our events and they were brilliant. Had such great feedback from all of our guests. They were professional, friendly and really accommodating.
The Nightingales were excellent, on time, lovely voices and very professional. They made the party the success it was - fantastic ladies. Their song repertoire suited the event - a birthday party in World War aerodrome. One guests commented that they were "stonking" - we totally agree. Very highly recommended.
Reliable, pleasant girls with excellent singing and music.
I cannot praise the Nightingales highly enough. From the point where they were booked they were co operative and worked with me to agree a time schedule and a song list that fitted our requirements. They remained in contact up to the day and arrived on time. They look and acted professionally. Their music volume was contained at my request at a level where we could all speak normally at a family gathering and later when when asked they raised the performance and blew us away. They were as good in real life as their promotional pictures and sounded better than their demo video. An outstanding performance.
Great evening entertainment -We really enjoyed ourselves!
The two nightingales entertained at my 50th birthday party last Saturday (8th November), in my local village hall, a smallish venue. They brought all their own equipment and set up quickly and efficiently and all they needed was a 3 pin plug. The ladies were immaculately turned out, and were incredibly friendly. They were fantastic! They sang songs that were really appropriate for the audience, and my guests and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Throughout the evening, so many people asked me "where did you find them?". I strongly suspect they will be invited back to my village by others. I would recommend them without hesitation. Thanks again both for making my 50th a very memorable and entertaining evening.
