Hi Pete we had a fantastic evening and the Buskers were awesome. Really friendly, talented and professional. Loads of our friends commented on their great vibe and loved the music! We'd definitely recommend them to others and would book them again for a function.
Thanks for your help.
Warm regards,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the great entertainment on Saturday night at the Horse and Trap. Everyone had a fantastic night, and that was mostly due to the great vibe you guys created with your music.

We've had many friends comment that it was the best party they've been to for ages and that the band was "epic"!! We'll certainly be recommending you to anyone looking for a great band in the future.

Thanks to you all for your friendly, professional manner and for making our celebration a great night to remember for all of us!

Warm regards,
Rachael Clark
