The organisation of booking was brilliant and Ben is so helpful. He responds to queries and keeps in regular contact. He is keen to tailor the tunes, length of sets etc, to your needs and is great through the whole process. He provided us with a playlist to play when the band were on a break. The actual music played and the singing were superb. We could not be more happy with the outcome! The party was mixed age groups and the dance floor was full the whole time. Thanks to every member of this talented and fun band. Best wishes from all the Sharp family.
