We will certainly be having them back for our next event. Thanks again guys! More...

Firstly I was impressed with how quickly you responded to my initial enquiry and any questions I had after that.You were brilliant in catering for my 13 year old daughters party, absolutely made it in fact. It was great that she could email you her favourite music choices and you added your own that suited the party. The lighting and music was great and also the respect you had for the venue. I know that there was a noise limit that may have been difficult to accommodate, but you did it.The thing that I was most surprised about was that you took the time to visit the venue in your own time before hand without us knowing to ensure that you would get it right. You were both fun professional and friendly. Any one who can get 13 year old boys up and dancing like that gets my vote.Thank you so much for a great night, Karen Steve and especially Leah x More...

It's important to take on board the music requests of our clients, equally we always attempt to meet the musical taste of the guests at your event.

We are very hands on, we introduce ourselves and our brand. We are positive and interact with the crowd when needed. We also do announcements if you're hosting a buffet or sit down meal, we can ask guests to take their seats and also to announce last orders at the bar.

We get to meet new people, and we are able to share in those key moments of celebrations in their lifes journey.
