For those of you who don’t like long reviews; these guys are fantastic, talented and really made our wedding. Stop your search and book them. For a slightly longer review read on, from the moment of booking the band stayed in contact and always made communication when they stated they would, this included running through running order/arrival time, sorting out the playlist and if we had any special requests for the day. Tom arrived before the rest of the band with all his equipment at the time we had agreed, he then proceeded to transport their equipment to the venue and start setting up. First of all, Tom is an extremely friendly and likeable person. He offered (probably regretted it!) to help out with anything as we were running behind he performed a few errands for us and generally helped us out for which we are very grateful. On to the music, as a band they are a very talented bunch, we left the set list up to them and my goodness did they deliver a fantastic blend of current and past music which had all age groups dancing, singing or at the very least tapping their foot along! I’m no Simon Cowell but they sounded fantastic with an excellent range throughout varying songs and genres. This coupled with the fact they were able to interact and react to the various unplanned situations during their set (first dance etc) made them an excellent choice for the wedding. An added twist, was that our wedding was a surprise wedding, with our guests turning up and expecting an engagement party, the band were extremely discreet and the surprise went down a storm. We spent hours and hours searching for a band for our wedding by the end of it all their samples seem to sound the same, save yourself the hassle and book these guys. A fantastic night had by all. THANK YOU GUYS!

Great bunch of lads and our guests loved the fact that they moved around the venue and mingled, playing music to suit the guests they were playing to at that time. We even got them to play our first dance live which we are so so glad we did as they nailed it. Thanks Carrie at Warble and The Travelling Hands for helping to make our wedding even more memorable.

The travelling hands were absolutely brilliant at our wedding last Saturday. They played the first dance song of our choice perfectly, and a good mix of old and new songs to get the guests dancing. The band were quick to respond to any questions before the day, and nothing was too much trouble to make sure the day was perfect. Thank you so much for making our day special!

They were excellent. Very sociable and eager to please; their playing and repertoire was an extremely pleasant backdrop to our daughter's wedding breakfast. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone for a wedding reception, or any other gathering... professional and well-delivered acoustic music.

The Buskers surpassed all our expectations, they were brilliant. They played a great mix of upbeat songs and had everyone dancing. They are a great group of guys and they looked like they were enjoying themselves as much as we were. Their set-up was great (lighting etc), they set their sound levels perfectly and their vocals were fantastic. We could not have asked for a better way to end the evening. They even let us play our own playlist through their equipment during their breaks.

We were incredibly pleased that we chose your duo to provide the live music at our wedding. They were always professional and both we and our guests enjoyed the entertainment. Their song repertoire was varied and well executed. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for two great musicians and singers.
