"We were extremely impressed by your lengthy repertoire, which allowed us to choose the perfect music not only for our ceremony but also for the drinks outside in the gardens and the Safari Lodge. We really appreciated being able to speak to Laura whenever we needed her. It was a wonderful relief to know that someone was paying attention to every detail. We would recommend you to anybody looking for wonderful musicians for any event. Best wishes and thank you." Catherine and Paul, wedding at Woburn Abbey (trio)
"Great playing yesterday.Loved Jeeves and Wooster theme in particular, but it was all brilliant. Thank you." Jason (Best Man). The Swan Hotel, Gloucester (Duo)
"..you played beautifully and for me it really made the day special. I just wished I could have stood and listened to you a bit more instead of having to chat and have my picture taken! A lot of people commented on how good you were, and there are at least a few people (including my mum and me) that will be looking out for events to book you for again. All the best and thanks again." Toby Burns (groom) Burgh House, Hampstead (trio)
