I hardly know where to start with expressing how fantastic you were last Saturday for our masked ball.  You had the whole room buzzing.  You seemed utterly in tune (excuse the pun) with the room and played at the exact level, style needed at every single point.  You are both so incredibly talented it was completely perfect.

When we hired you, if I am honest, I had slight misgivings in respect of two people being able to produce the right sound.  Now we’ve heard you we can’t imagine how any band could have possibly been better.  You surpassed all possible expectations.

 Thank you so much from all of us at the Lydbrook British Legion for making our ball a resounding success.  You are both amazing.  We were only planning to do this as a one off but the whole village is asking when the next one is, so maybe this time next year…? 

 All the very best  Claire


We just wanted to get in touch and say a very big thank you for performing at our wedding at The Abbey Hotel on 12th March.  We were absolutely amazed by both of your talent and variety of instrumental expertise! We couldn’t have asked for anything better during our reception and the guests were all raving about you in the morning. 

 Thank you again especially for putting such hard work into learning our first dance song.  It worked extremely well and was exactly what we were looking for. 

 Many thanks for helping to make our special day perfect!

 Kind regards, Carly and Jonathon.

Thank you! You both were SO GOOD! Even better than the demo - which we thought was pretty wonderful already! It was so pleasant to see and hear the both of you play - and will definitely recommend the both of you to anyone who will be getting married!

Thanks again for making our wedding so wonderful! Totally love you guys!

Just a short note to say how much  Tricia, myself & our guests enjoyed your music at our wedding on Sunday.

With thanks again & very best wishes,

I wanted to drop you and Diane a note to say a BIG thank for doing such a wonderful job last night –

everyone I spoke to were very impressed with you both.

 Thank you once again for all your help with making our 15th Birthday a wonderful night!.

Donna    @ Eurolink  Glos.    (Corporate Event)

Thank you so much for your excellent performing for us for the evening. You were everything you had promised to be, which was everything we wanted!  We both have a particular dislike of loud disco music at wedding-type functions, where nobody can hear anybody else talking without yelling themselves hoarse (and as a singer myself, that's the last thing I want to do....) Your music was at just the right level to be great for dancing, but also good for talking. As we wanted to do a great deal of both, it worked beautifully.
We knew we would have a dwindling number of guests as the evening progressed, as many had come a long way, but it really didn't matter, and those that stayed, even if they weren't dancing, really enjoyed listening to you - there were a great many compliments about you! You were also very discreet when you were setting up, which was much appreciated, thank you.
All in all, we had a brilliant day, and I'm so glad I decided to choose you to round it off.
All good wishes, and I know where you are if we decide to do anything similar in future!

We just wanted to say huge thank you to you both for playing at our wedding on Saturday.  We had a wonderful day, better than we could have hoped for.   The music was simply wonderful and we had so many great comments from our guests about the music.  We were even approached by some of the other hotel guests on Sunday morning, who commented how much they had enjoyed your music and had decided not to go out, but to stay and enjoy it instead!

We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending 'Ain't Misbehavin'  to anyone planning a wedding, if was a fabulous end to a wonderful day.  Many thanks
