Matt Boyes - Bass Guitarist - Brighton, South East Event Location: Lewes Event Type: Wedding 15th August 2023
an excellent choice to play at our wedding, they were a great band, very helpful, easy to book, and lovely people all around. They were happy to have discussions with us around what we were looking for, the logistics etc. As for the music, they were amazing and sounded so professional - there was something for everyone and all our guests had a fantastic time. On the day we didn’t have to worry, they turned up and did all the setting up and packing up really quickly. Also, Matt went absolutely above and beyond with helping us to do our own little surprise performance during our wedding. We couldn’t recommend them enough!
