We perform 100% live acoustic music that WILL fill the dance floor. No pre-recorded backing tracks required.

"I just wanted to send you an email to say a huge thankyou for helping make our wedding the wonderful day it was. Right from when our early guests overheard your sound check we started to hear positive feedback. We loved the way you started off with some easy listening tracks early, then some great dancing (with the whole room on the dance floor I might add) classics later on. You truly made our wedding an enjoyable one, but also a stress free one."

"While it may have only been for one set, we had such great feedback on your music from guests, both in quality and song selection. Personally, we loved dealing with you as you made it so easy, and learning a song for us to make the day perfect, (at such short notice too) really was amazing. Thanks again!"
