The band were great, the perfect accompaniment to our wedding picnics. We loved all of the songs they played and they really set the tone for our day. It was amazing to have them playing as our guests arrived and we could hear them from the river as we arrived by boat. They were friendly and helpful, matching their performance to our days timing which was brilliant. Thank you!
