Thanks for a great night very professional outfit with good pa and sound, played all the unusual requests we had with great gusto learned them off and did them great justice. Had the floor filled for the night. Brilliant and really easy lads to deal with and having played music for over twenty years myself couldn't recommend them enough if you want a band to keep the crowd dancing these are your boys!!!!
