“You pitched the music perfectly and created just the right atmosphere for the event. The Fab Bananas are mentioned a lot on the feedback forms weve received with people saying you were a highlight of the day. On top of that, I was grateful that you all just got on with it whilst I ran around dealing with car parks and three legged races!”
– Rochford Council, Essex

“They are absolutely brilliant and I recommend them highly! We held a multicultural celebration in Hove Town Hall with over 3 and a half thousand people visiting throughout the day. Our performers were a very diverse group from many cultural backgrounds and there were children and families taking part too. The Mayor opened the event and it was also attended by Councillors and MPs. We were somewhat constricted by budget and so I asked Jim to play as part of a duo (I believe they are usually a five piece). They were exceptionally professional, performed three half hour slots and stayed all day to do this. They performed in the foyer and later when we had a mix up of times up on the main stage they went upstairs and did an impromptu set up there too. They were a real hit and very easy going on what was a hectic day. I cannot recommend them enough.”
– Brighton and Hove Council

“Thanks for your email! The event was extremely successful and much more than expected was raised for Marie Curie! All the entertainers were fabulous, please extend our thanks to them all!….”
