"Candide were truly the perfect choice for our wedding reception. With 60 guests, we didn't want to be 'overwhelmed' by a large group and the two guys ensured that the evening was intimate, yet vibrant. Many of the guests have since contacted me to say how much they particularly enjoyed Candide's performance and their expertise in judging the mood and their catalogue is varied and extensive. Best of all though is undoubtably the music itself - Candide are real musicians who can really play" Graeme Phillips
"Great guys, excellent music, absolutely delighted with them. Party was a huge success mainly due to their presence" Steve Wallace
"Thank you, to the fine musicians of Candid. Your fantastic contribution helped to make what all agree was one of the best ever, our first dance - to your last song, just made the reception and we'll always be grateful for the effort and skill you put in. Vive La Difference!" Nick & Jen Davies
"Candide were superb - they really knew how to make the best of the limited space we had. The music was top quality and a fun and colourful mix - not the usual wedding cheese! They managed to get EVERYONE dancing - during their rest periods they played various tracks and clearly a lot of thought also went into these selections. Thanks for making our wedding go with a bang!" David & Helen
