Strongly Recommend! Very professional, sounded great! Would book again!

We booked Lee and his band for our wedding reception. Couldn't be more pleased with how organized and professional he was. With all the stress of planning a covid-era wedding, we felt in great hands with Lee. They catered to our tasted in music and had a great range of songs to play, including our requests. Lee also DJ'd after the live event -- which I would strongly recommend! If we are in need of live music again, I would happily book them again!!
