You were brilliant (even better than I'd remember
We're back from honeymoon and now the dust has settled we wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you for helping make our wedding a day to remember. You were brilliant (even better than I'd remembered from your promo video), and everyone kept coming up to us all night to say how fantastic you were. You kept the dance floor moving, and we had an absolute blast celebrating with you. We will definitely be recommending you to others (and judging from our guests' reactions, some of them will be too!). James, you made all of the arrangements in the run up so easy, and as a slightly frazzled bride to be I really appreciated that! We are still on cloud nine, and you all will be one of our stand out memories for years to come. Emma & James Hume

Couldn’t have wished for a better band
Hey James We both would like to say a big thank you to all of the band for such a fun night last week we have had great comments about how good you where and both me and Anna couldn’t have wished for a better band. If we know of anyone getting married in the future we would happily recommend you guys. Good luck for the rest of the year we’ll both keep an eye out on Facebook and also any videos you guys do.

Everyone there commented how amazing the band was
Hi James, just a quick note before we fly on honeymoon, last night was brilliant, the band really made it a great end to the night. Literally everyone there commented how amazing the band was. Thanks! Just a quick final ask, but could you send across your set list, I'd like to have it to remind us of the songs on the night. Also, if you can email any photos you have, or I can pick them up if you're posting any on your Facebook page. Also, massive thanks for making the George Ezra song happen - Claire loved it. Thanks again
