"I had the pleasure of booking the band for a small private gig. Even though it may have been a bit of different set up for Sue and Gordon, they kept it all professional. They fitted in perfectly as they are such a fun relaxed act to watch and dance to. I had lots of positive comments post event about Happy Fish. Really enjoyed the original pieces too." Pippa Partington
Kind Regards
Sue and Gordon
