WEDDING 2024

Thank you sooooo much for playing for our wedding reception!!! You guys were absolutely amazing! We had the best night and all the guests were raving about the band scoring you a 10/10.  They all had sore feet by the end of the night. Our two favourite songs were played “Angels” and “Wagon Wheel”.  Absolutely recommend this lovely band to play at any event. Great song selections which were loved by all. Regards, Kim and Richard.
