Hi Robyn,
Sorry it's taken a while to respond but taking a while to get back to reality after a hectic Christmas break. We will send a more formal thank you note to the band but we thought they were fantastic! Many at the wedding commented they were the best band they had seen at a wedding, they interacted well with everyone and had a great mix of songs. They judged the mood well and it was a shame we were slightly delayed in getting them started, but I think the groom solo of 'run to paradise' made up for it......
We would definitely recommend them!
Janna and Stu

HI Robyn,

Thanks for all your help.
Michelle Walsh
