Wow what can we say about your bands performance at our wedding at Stanneylands on March 21st!! We just wanted to say a massive thank you to all of you- we could not have asked for more! Everyone said it was the best wedding band they had ever heard and we could not agree more! All of the members energy and talent really made the night and kept everyone dancing all night which was exactly what we wanted from our wedding. Ashley James had the most amazing voice which everyone commented on. Please pass on our thanks to the other members.
