Caroline Hassall – joint 21st Party daughters – October 
They and everyone there had a fabulous time. Capone were outstanding and we have had so many great comments about them

Laura Claridge – Highgate House, Northamptonshire, Wedding
I just wanted to get in touch to let you know what great feedback we got from our guests about Capone and the DJ at our wedding. So many people we spoke to afterwards told us how brilliant they thought they were, especially the singer. We had guests saying they were the best wedding band they had ever seen and they made such a refreshing change from having a cheesy band & dj!

Chris and I were so pleased; the singer was so friendly and made the evening feel so personal. Claire smiled the whole way through and laughed and joked with the guests on the dance floor. The Dj was also brilliant- he happily accepted requests and played much longer than he was scheduled to as the dance floor was so busy! We also appreciate you managing to play so many of the requests I sent through. The other choice of songs were spot on too. We absolutely loved the entire set, I am so glad we decided to book you. The overall service I have received has been completely smooth and pain free and I would have no hesitation at all in recommending you to anyone else. Many thanks once again.

Lucy Meacock ITV Presenter – The Palace Manchester, Northwest Construction Awards
“Hi Claire thought you & the band were brilliant at the North West Construction Awards!”

Lindsey and Andrew – Duke of Richmond Hotel, Guernsey, Wedding
Trying to find a band for our wedding this summer was quite a daunting task, as the music plays such a big role in setting the tone of the event. As soon as we heard Capone’s demo, we thought there was something different and special about them and we weren’t wrong!

The band were amazing to work with from day one, making a huge journey from the north of England across the channel to Guernsey, without any hassle or complaint. Their repertoire was huge, playing everything from old tunes to new, including a beautiful rendition of our first dance song. My friends and family were incredibly impressed, so much so that the band were the talk of the after party, with several of the guests commenting on Chole’s incredible vocal range. Hiring Capone was the best decision we made and well worth it, what a brilliant bunch of talented self-starters. I’m just looking for an excuse to hire them again now!” Thanks again to you all!

Charlotte & Lee – Pasture Hall Country House, Scarborough, Wedding
We booked with Capone after seeing them play at our friend’s wedding in 2013 and they were just as great on our day as we had remembered. From the initial booking, through to the big day they have been professional, thorough and friendly. We will definitely be recommending to my friends and family for the future! Thanks again!

James Carvel – The Hilton, Liverpool, Wedding
Capone played a fantastic set which got the whole marquee up on their feet and dancing. A really tight band and the singer has an amazing voice – the online videos do not do them justice! The band were great to deal with in advance, very clear as to what they would require and very accommodating of our specific requests. Thanks guys, you really helped make the evening come alive!

Claire Branston – Dinorwig Power Station, Llanberis, Corporate Event
First Hydro Company were celebrating its 30th Anniversary and wanted a band who would play a mixture of music in order to meet a varied selection of age groups who were attending the event. Capone were very obliging, came across very well, and helped to keep our evening flowing with suitable music meeting everyone’s tastes. The music was pitched at just the right level for the event; not too loud, not too way out and they were all well-rehearsed and tight. Highly Recommended!!

Gary & Catherine – The Traddock, Yorkshire, Wedding
We were really happy with Capone and really glad we chose them. We chose the band because of the other testimonials and the type of music that they played and we weren’t disappointed! In all our interactions Paul and the band were really professional and helpful and made life as easy as possible for us. The sound was fantastic – our main aim was to get as many people dancing as possible and – thanks to Paul, Claire, Tim and Phil – everyone had a great time. The band sounded fantastic but one of the main things for us was that they all seemed to being enjoying themselves as well. The only downside was that they couldn’t play for longer but that was down to the venue rather than them! Overall highly recommended and if you do book them we’re sure you won’t be disappointed.

Helene & Craig Jackson – The Grange, Thornton Hough, Wedding
Thank you for making our wedding so amazing. We had a fabulous time on our special night, and you guys made this for us. We have had so many friends and family comment how great you guys were on our Night. We thank you for making it so special with your performance. Thank you again!

Nathan Howard – Escrik Park Estate, York, Wedding
Just arrived back in London and while we have a second to breathe I wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for your amazing performance yesterday. You went down an absolute storm: we have had so many compliments and enquiries about you and I am sure you will be getting a few calls in the near future from our engaged friends! Thank you again, Nathan

Sue & Ian – Priests House, Skipton, Wedding
Well, it is now 4 weeks since our Wedding Day and we are still on a high and still dancing around the kitchen to Everybody Needs Somebody to Love and Shake Your Tail Feathers! We loved both these songs before our Wedding but now they mean even more to us. We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you all for making our evening really special. Thank you so much for playing the songs we love – all evening – and for keeping the dance floor busy all night. Ian and I would gladly have danced into the early hours if you had kept playing!

Our family and all our friends thought you were a fantastic band and mentioned how engaged you were with everyone. We have had a number of requests for your details as well – fingers crossed. We had a fantastic day, the venue, the food, the weather and so on and then you came along and put the icing on the cake! We just cannot thank you enough for rounding off a memorable day with some fantastic music that we will remember fondly for years to come! Hopefully we will get to see you again somewhere, even if it is back at the Priests House but in the meantime we would just like to wish you the best of success and once again, thank you for being a big part of making our day so special and memorable. With Love and Best Wishes. Sue and Ian xx

Andrew & Emma – Rivington Barn, Wedding
I hope you are all well, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for performing for us on our Wedding Day, you were very popular with everyone, we had so many people comment on how great you were as a band. Also thanks for the first dance song you put together for us. it was extremely popular and made a lot of people laugh. I wonder if it would be possible to ask a favour? Would you be able to provide your set list for the day (each session), I would like to print and frame it as a constant reminder of the day. Thanks again and hopefully we will see you perform again sometime soon.

Helaine Hudson – Exeter, Wedding
RSVP are a fantastic party band, able to tailor their playlist for any occasion. A very reliable and professional bunch, with a lot of soul and an eclectic playlist, RSVP made my 50th birthday bash really fun and energetic. They played a dinner set as well as dance music later on and were able to work with us to provide the right sound for the occasion. Everyone raved about them (Americans and Brits of all ages). We would recommend them for any party. Thanks you, RSVP!

Glen & Bryony – The Saint Rooms, Cumbria, Wedding
Good evening and trust you are well. Just a quick note to thank you and the rest of the band for a thoroughly entertaining evening – you helped create a brilliant atmosphere and kept everyone dancing all night. Everyone has been very complementary about the quality and the performance of you guys and from mine and Bryony’s perspective, you helped make it such a special night for us and our guests.

Catherine Cleave – Priests House, Skipton, Wedding
Thank you very much for your e-mail and thank you very much for playing at our wedding. Many of our guests commented how good you were. I must apologies that I did not get the opportunity to talk you properly on the day. It was all a bit of a whirlwind!!! Of course I can write a testimonial for you. Please let me know where you would like me to review your band and I will action this week. Thank you once again for helping to make our wedding day a day to remember.

Jane Morton – Kegworth Hotel, Birthday Party
Firstly, I would like to say a huge thank you to you all for your brilliant performance at my birthday party on Saturday evening. Lots of guests have commented on how they enjoyed it and how professional everything was. Shame that everyone was too busy chatting and eating (which to be fair took longer than we envisaged) to dance during the first set but nice to see the dance floor busy during the second. Once again many thanks, I certainly would have no hesitation to recommending Capone to my friends and family.

Katy Kidney – Pendre Hall, Wedding
I just wanted to say thanks so much to the band for your performance on Saturday night. Tom and I could not have been happier and everyone commented on how amazing you were. We will do a proper review when we get back from honeymoon but if you could pass on our thanks to the rest of the band that would be great.

Kate Da Costa – Kate Da Costa, Berkshire, Wedding
Claire has a lovely voice and many people commented that they really enjoyed the band. They were professional, very easy to contact and answered all my questions promptly. We had them on a very warm night and a lot of people were sitting outside chatting and listening to them whilst enjoying a cool breeze. Thank you!

Lynne Howell – Priests House, Wedding
What can we say? The evening was a roaring success with all our guests commenting on how fantastic the Capone band were. You were all so professional from setting up to leaving. Thank you for incorporating our song choices into your set and making it a truly magical evening in the most wonderful of locations. The dance floor was full from the word go and the atmosphere was fantastic. We cannot recommend you highly enough. Thanks again guys. Will definitely pass your number to anyone needing a band.

Nathalie and Mark – Soughton Hall, Northop, Wedding
We returned from our honeymoon last night and wanted to drop you an email to say Thank You so much for playing at our wedding! We had a great time and everyone has been saying great things about you guys and how good you were ? Looking forward to seeing all the pics it was a fab day! Thank you once again you were great xx

Elaine and dave – Moels Hall, Wedding
I just wanted to say a big thank you for doing a great job at our wedding. We had such a great time you and your band was great which was good as my guests were well up a party!! Thanks again!!

Mr & Mrs Nelson – Leicestershire, Wedding
Thank you to Capone for a wonderful performance, the music was brilliant, Claire has an amazing voice and the band were ready to perform in plenty of time, fitting round the events of our wedding. Everyone commented on how great they were. I wouldn’t hesitate to book them again. Thank you.

Elizabeth Hughes – Sandburn Hall, Wedding
A huge thank you to you and the rest of the band for providing such a great atmosphere for our evening reception! ? You were all exceptional and the music was brilliant and perfect for getting everyone on the dance floor. I would certainly recommend Capone to anyone wanting to hire a band so please feel free to use the testimonial below:

We booked Capone to play at our wedding reception and they truly made the evening! Claire and the rest of the band members were exceptional – in addition to being hugely talented with a great repertoire of songs, they arrived over an hour early to the venue to make sure they were setup, sound-checked and ready to go when we were. Capone were 100% professional from the moment we placed our booking and the music was brilliant – I don’t think the dance floor was ever empty! I would highly recommend Capone to anyone wanting to hire a band for their wedding or other celebration. Many thanks again!! ?

Sammy & Olly – The Hillbark, Civil Partnership, Wirral
We were absolutely delighted with all of you on our wedding day, you really were amazing and honestly we can’t thank you enough. You brought such an amazing atmosphere and were so professional and friendly at all times. I Will and have recommended you to EVERYONE! Thanks again!

Faye and Rob Smith – Ripon, Wedding
“Capone recently played at our wedding in Ripon and were simply brilliant. They played a fantastic acoustic set whilst guest were arriving, that set the tone and mood for the evening do. Claire has an amazing voice and the band’s choice of songs for the set fitted what were looking for and got everyone up and dancing. The band ended up doing about three encores due to demands! Thank you for making it such a memorable do! Faye and Rob Smith”

Giles & Bryony Crabtree – Norfolk, Wedding
Capone played at our wedding and were amazing. Our first contact with them a few weeks before the wedding was friendly and helpful and we felt confident that we didn’t need to worry about their part in the day. They were keen to find out what music we wanted them to play both live and between sets (we said yes to the free DJ). When they arrived (in good time despite a long journey) they set up quietly and were ready with our first dance song when we needed. Their set was brilliant; everyone danced for ages. We’ve had SO many people since the wedding tell us that the band were fantastic, that the singer was amazing and asking how we’d found them. We’d strongly recommend Capone as a great band who are also friendly and put effort into tailoring their performance to the needs of the people hiring them.

Chris & Nicola Chilton – Eaves Hall, Wedding
We took a chance with Capone for our wedding after finding them on the internet and viewing their sample performances online but not actually seeing them live. The gamble paid off, what a great band. From the moment we contacted them they came across as very professional, in dealing with the formalities, yet were friendly and accommodating. On the night they were flexible regarding timings and set up without any fuss. The music they played was top notch with a good mix of styles; Claire has an amazing voice! Many of the guests commented on how good the band were and we really felt that they were a fantastic addition to the night. We can’t fault them at all and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to others. Thanks again to you all. Chris & Nicola Chilton

Philippa Leonard – The Lymm Hotel, Wedding
I’m so glad you had a great time performing at the wedding – we have had such great comments on you. The music you played was perfectly matched to the guests and I don’t remember the dance floor being empty – even when it was just to the playlists between sets. The highlight of the evening for me was “let me entertain you” when most of our guests (aged from 10 to 80) were all on the dance floor all singing along and bouncing!! Thank you for making the evening so memorable. I would have no hesitation in recommending you for any wedding or event. Kind regards. Philippa x

Paul Pendergast – Royal Bolton Hospital, Charity Event
I just want to say that you, the band and the DJ were great and I have already had some great feedback about the variety of music you played on the night. Everything went fantastically well so I would personally like to thank you for an excellent night’s entertainment.

Helen and Simon – Priory Cottages, Wedding
We thought Capone were fantastic. They played a great range of songs that everyone could enjoy and get up on the dance floor to. The whole thing ran so smoothly and all our guests had a fab time. We would definitely recommend Capone to anyone who wants a fun and upbeat band that can please all tastes and ages. Thank you again, Helen and Simon

Luke and Gill Clarke -Combermere Abbey, Wedding
I have to start off by saying that this band were amazing. Right from the very start and the first contact they were super helpful so it made our planning even easier. They had a great selection of songs and really knew how to get the crowd going. I have not heard a single bad word about the band from the people who attended the wedding, which is really amazing as well. I would recommend this band to anyone and would love to be able to book them again. A massive thank you for being part of the day and making it a little extra special. Oh and sorry for falling in to the band a couple of times Lol!!

Ashley and Philip Lavell – Somerford Hall, Wedding
We are incredibly grateful to Capone for making the music at our wedding unforgettable! Claire’s soulful voice was stunning and the varied sets had our guests of all ages on the dance floor. They were consummate professionals from the start and were happy to take our requests on board. Our first dance was amazing to hear and dance to live and it set a wonderful tone to the night. Having booked Capone/Capone as a 5-piece based on their demo we were anxious as to how the live band would sound. We were utterly impressed and received compliments on them from our guests all night. We also thought their accompanying DJ was a brilliant late night finish to the fabulous entertainment. We definitely recommend Capone/Capone for an excellent party!

Kathryn Bremner – Formby Golf & Spa Resort, Wedding
‘Capone Band played for our wedding at Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa earlier this year and were brilliant. All booking correspondence prior to the big day was easy and straight forward. On the night the band got everyone going and played some classic favourites. We had a DJ too to fill in the breaks and they worked great together passing over seamlessly. The Capone Band were very professional, great musicians and brilliant fun. We would thoroughly recommend them – The Bremners’

Laura and Pete – Manchester Town Hall, Wedding
I’d just like to say an absolutely fantastic wedding and Capone / Capone were brilliant. They got everybody up on the dance floor with their mixed and varied set …. Fantastic fun! We would have no hesitation in booking them again for any future parties …… definitely the best band we could have booked!!!

Elaine Duguan – Liverpool Football Club, Corporate Event
I would just like to say that Capone were absolutely fabulous and played a wonderful selection of music that accommodated our range of international guests. Their communication and professional attitude before, during and after the event was outstanding and that met every one of our requirements. They were just brilliant. Thank you!

Mari Edwards –Bryn Tudur Farm, Wedding
Hi Claire sorry for the delay in replying. Just to say big thanks for the amazing entertainment by Capone on our wedding night. Thanks for playing our requests can’t believe you played so many of them. A highly talented and professional team. Thanks again. Mari and Rob

Joanna & Craig Steffensen –Wood hall Hotel, Wedding
We picked Capone for our wedding band and I cannot stress how fantastic this band is!!! They had everyone up on the dance floor as soon as the band started playing and Claire started singing! The talent and professionalism of this band is second to none! We also opted for a dj service which worked brilliantly alongside the band! Highly recommend!!!

Sally & Richard Simmons – Band on the Wall, Manchester, Wedding
Capone performed a brilliant set at our wedding reception, the dance floor was never empty. The quality of the music and choice of playlist were fantastic and the band were total professionals to deal with right from booking. Thank you very much!

Victoria Slater – Leighton Hall, Carnforth, Wedding
Sorry not to get back to you sooner, we’ve been on honeymoon. Thanks so much for your performance at our wedding, we thought you were fantastic and lots of guests said to us how good they thought you were – we were a bit worried with the layout of the hall that people wouldn’t dance but I never saw the dance floor empty, much to your credit!

Jenny and Chris – Yorkshire Dales, Wedding
We wanted to email you to say a Big Thank You to you all for such a brilliant performance at our Daughter’s wedding 19th November. Jenny and Chris will be emailing you when they get back from honeymoon very soon. We all had a fantastic day and your music was perfect. The drinks reception acoustic session blended beautifully for us and First Dance” Only You” was sung amazingly well by Claire. All the guests clearly had a good time judging by the amount of people on the dance floor thanks to your musical talent. It was a great Day for us!

Chris James – Radisson Blue Hotel, Birmingham, Wedding
I booked Capone for my wedding in April. We had Capone as a three piece (as we did not have a lot of space in the venue).

Claire got in contact with me in plenty of time before the event to discuss our requirements (playlists for the live music and DJ sets, timings etc). Claire was a great help with all this and as a result organising the band was one of the easiest parts of the wedding which really took the pressure off other areas. Claire and the band also agreed to learn a new song for our first dance and their rendition of it on the day was excellent.

On the day the band arrived in plenty of time and worked with the hotel staff to get themselves in and set up (again, one less thing for me to do). From the time they started the first set to the last song the dance floor was full. I think either on the night or since, every one of my guests (without exception and without exaggerating) have said just how good they thought the band were. I was extremely impressed and we did not miss having more musicians there. I am not sure how they did it, but it certainly sounded more like a 5 piece band than a 3 piece.
We had a few older guests, who did not want to dance and who would rather spend the time talking and catching up. I knew from previous events that they found overly-loud DJs quite alienating and did not generally enjoy events where they had to really shout to be heard. Thankfully Capone pitched it just right, so everyone could enjoy the music.

I would recommend Capone to anyone thinking of hiring a band and I would strongly urge anyone thinking of hiring a DJ to forget it and hire Capone instead. Without a doubt they really made the evening special for everyone and had a really good rapport with the guests. I will definitely be booking with them for any future events.

We hope you were looked after by the catering staff and had enough refreshments for the day. You all fitted in really well and were a pleasure to have in our home. We really appreciated the use of the PA system too. The speeches ran over a little which made things a little later than predicted but all well in the end. Thank you once again to everyone. Joan and Neil Hallam.

Alison & Paul Clears –Standish Unity Club, Wedding
What can I say…. The band was amazing they completely made our night and any future parties we have we would not hesitate to book you again. Highly recommended! Thanks again Alison & Paul

Sally Marshall –Ardencote Hotel, Wedding
I’d just like to say a great big thank you to Claire and the band that came all the way down to Warwickshire to perform at our wedding. The band were second to none and completely made our night with their mix of music classic to modern which kept the dance floor busy all night. We highly recommend them to anybody who’s looking for a fun night!!! You will not be disappointed!

Mr and Mrs Crumbleholme –Eaves Hall, Wedding
I was intending to email you today to say thank you so so much for being absolutely amazing when performing at our wedding. You were brilliant and really made the reception lively and fun. I was so touched that you performed the two songs that i requested for the IPod playlist and your rendition of our first dance song was just magical. I think you could tell that everyone loved you as they made you keep going until you had no voice left; sorry about that! I would certainly recommend you to anyone else getting married and all my guests agreed that you were fab. Thanks so much!!!

Gareth & Sara Harle – Secret Garden, Wedding
‘We couldn’t speak more highly of Capone and the performances they gave at our Wedding Reception. The band had to deal with very tight noise restrictions from our venue and they did this with professionalism and understanding. Even with these restrictions the band sounded fantastic! Our dance floor was full and many guests commented on the fantastic vocals and overall performance. They learnt our first dance for us and performed this excellently on the night, which added that extra special touch. Their communication and flexibility was also excellent. Anyone booking this band will not be disappointed!’
Laura and Adam Sharpe –Aston Hall Hotel, Wedding
Thanks Capone. The music that your band played at our wedding was excellent, and all of our guests commented on how good it was. It was a bit of a risk booking a band that we hadn’t heard before but the testimonials and varied set list helped us choose. The mix of songs ensured that the dance floor was always full with guests of all ages. A perfect sound for a perfect day.

Andrea & Ed – The Wild Pheasant Hotel, Wedding
‘Capone made our wedding really special with great music that all my friends wanted to get up and dance and sing along to! We all had a really great night, having the band made it much more fun. Lots of my friends commented after how great the music was. We would definitely recommend them – thanks again Capone!’

Dawn & Tim – The Church Hall, Wedding
‘We had a fantastic time at our wedding and now the dust is settling we wanted to say a huge thank you for the part you played in making our day, truly a day to remember. The whole band was fantastic; you were so friendly and accommodating. We were a little concerned that our venue wasn’t the biggest and our timing got a little out of sync. You accommodated this, our first dance, and our “guest” singer and took everything in your stride. The set you played was fantastic too with everyone dancing and commenting on what a great band we had chosen. A massive thank you! We would without doubt have no hesitation in recommending you and wish you the very best for the future.’

Sylvia Riddell – Peckforton Castle, Wedding
‘Just wanted to say thank you so much to Capone for being so fab at the evening do of our wedding. You were so professional and sounded great. Quite a few of our guests commented on how good you were and how amazing Claire’s voice was and we couldn’t agree more – we would book you again without a second thought. You had everyone up and dancing and the music provided for between sets worked really well too. We can’t thank you enough for helping to make our evening do so much fun. Thanks again!’

Tom Clarke –Stockport Golf Club, Summer Ball
Aaron, just a quick note to say, what a great night on Saturday for the 3rd year running. Well done to all the band, the atmosphere was fantastic, and feed-back has been great once again. We are definitely booking you for next year…….keep the date free!!!!!

Claire & Mike Wright – Rivington Hall Barn, Wedding
‘We booked Capone for our son’s wedding reception and their performance was the perfect end to a perfect day. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music and people even started to dance during the sound check it was that good! Claire has an awesome voice backed up by some very talented musicians. As the saying goes, we could have danced all night. We would recommend Capone without hesitation. Thanks Claire.

Natasha Rose – The Tithe Barn, Wedding
Thank you to all in the Capone band for making our wedding unforgettable, the music was just brilliant and the dance floor was jam packed the whole night! The following day everyone commented on how great the band was – we would definitely book you again and we really would! My highlight was Florence and the machine, you’ve got the love!

James & Jenny Hartley – Packington Moore, Wedding
“Capone was the perfect wedding band. Right from the word go we were really impressed with how lengthy and varied their repertoire was covering all genres and eras that you could wish for. On the night they did not disappoint. Everyone was dancing nearly all night and the clamours for encores did not stop! I’m surprised you managed to get away when you did! As a tip we opted for the 5-piece line-up which I think was worth every penny if you can afford a little extra, but either way, a very slick and accomplished outfit that everyone complimented me on choosing so I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone. Thanks again! James and Jenny”

Friends of KWC – King Williams College, Isle O Man, Summer Ball
‘We hired Capone for our Annual May Ball and were delighted with their performance and professionalism. Our guests’ ages ranged from 18 – 60 and the dance floor was full the whole time thanks to the band’s ability to perform for and please such a diverse group. We have had many requests for Capone’s details since our event, which is always a good sign, and would have no hesitation in recommending them.’

Tony Bolton – Rawtenstall Cricket Club 60th Birthday Party
A top notch performance and really enjoyed by myself and all my guests. Your set up was brilliant my eldest son Chris and his partner Amanda are both musicians Chris has his own DJ business (a little alternative) did you notice the tall guy with the dreads and Amanda used to sing (still does in the bath) and they were both really impressed, Amanda described Capone as ‘really tight’ not my terminology but I believe it means you were getting things right. Thanks for a great night and I’m sure your performance made my guests dig a little deeper, thank you, Kind Regards, Tony.

Philippa Waddell – Saddle farm, Wedding
“Capone played at our wedding and despite an unusual venue, the middle of a field, they were able to give us exactly the experience we were looking for. They played a varied set that suited all ages and really got people dancing and were open to considering set list requests in advance. They learnt our first dance which made it seem a lot more personal. They had a friendly and down to earth approach that fit right in with the feel of our special day and were extremely professional before the day itself in making all the necessary arrangements. We would not hesitate to recommend them to others looking for a great live band for their own celebrations. ”

Deborah Gorick – Simpson House, Wedding
I just wanted to say thanks for Saturday. The band was brilliant and we’ve heard nothing but compliments about you all. Will be recommending you and will certainly be in touch if we’re having another party.

Margot Bick – Oswestry School, Summer Ball
Just a note to say that the ball was a great success due in no small part to the music provided by yourselves. The combination of old favourites and up to date music was a perfect mix for our ball.
All in all it was perfect.

Tom Ogden – Towncliffe Golf Club, Charity Event
What a fantastic night! The band was awesome and very professional. They played to mixed crowd from 18 up to 70 and kept the dance floor busy all night. Highly recommended and we will be booking them again!

Les Jowsey – Stockport Golf Club, Summer Ball
