Wow, what a night! You guys absolutely rocked the house... Fantastic. You're even better than 10 yrs ago when we last partied! Thank you so much for helping to make it a truly awesome celebration. Loads of love.

The Sweeney

Just wanted to say a big thank you for Saturday night. I thought you were all fantastic and haven't seen a band keep the guests on the dance floor like you did for a while. You helped make our wedding the perfect day. Thank you again.

The Sweeney

Dominic and I wanted to say a big thank you for playing our wedding and making the evening awesome. Our guests commented on how many people were on the dance floor all night. Your sets were spot on for the whole range of guests and learning Ho Hey so we could have it as our first dance made the day really special.

The Sweeney

Just to thank you to you and the band for a fabulous night of live music at King's Staff Christmas Party on Thursday night. It was a fantastic evening and staff young and old have all commented what a great evening it was, one of the best ever, I've never seen so many people up dancing. Thank you so much, great night, great band.

The Sweeney

A dog's b******* of a covers band.

Andy, Just wanted to send you a quick note to say a massive THANK YOU for an amazing set at our wedding last month ! We had a brilliant evening and have had loads of comments from our guests saying they had never been to a wedding where they spent so much time on the dance floor! We loved every minute and are really grateful that you were able to get in all our favourite songs. We wish you guys all the best for the future and will gladly recommend you to our friends and family. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band.
