Hi Pete
Yes, everyone thought Livewire was great. A couple of amazing vocalists in there, and we will certainly be looking at getting them for future events.

Hi Pete,
Thanks for your email.
The band were amazing. We had so many people asking who they were. Adrian and the team were incredibly professional and accommodating. This is the second time I've booked them and would definitely have them again!
Thanks so much
