|Corporate||I want to thank you for arranging such a delightful trio to entertain all at our 10 year club function. I haven’t laughed so much in a long time. They are very good, professional, funny. They managed to get loads of people onto the dance floor even though the weather was great and people were sitting outside on the terrace. I would highly recommend Tony & his team. They certainly helped make our afternoon a huge success|
|Wedding||I just wanted to email you to let you know how pleased my husband and I were to have Tony and his band come to play for us at our wedding. They were absolutely fantastic! the music they played was perfect, and Tony did an excellent job of getting everyone up onto the dance floor - even my 85 year old grandma! everyone gave us such positive feedback on the band. We really valued Tony and his band's professionalism and they were extremely helpful and positive throughout the entire process, from initial booking, contacting me to discuss our needs a few days before the event, to the night itself. They were totally brilliant! my only regret is that we didn't book them for longer!|
