The Rush Testimonials
WHAT A BAND! Our guests our still talking about them now. An amazing day, capped off with an amazing night. The RUSH made our day the perfect day!
Chris & Sarah August 2015 Owen House Barn, Mobberley
Firstly, can we please thank you for what was a perfect day. Obviously we book all our music through you, and from the moment you started at the ceremony, everything was exactly what we'd wished for.
The acoustic duo were brilliant, and played our songs perfectly. Then Gavin with his Rat Pack tribute, brilliant, I've never seen people up singing at a meal before!!
The band in the evening were SO GOOD! the dancefloor was full all night and the selection of songs were spot on for our crowd. This was also evident during the DJing set, capping off an absolutely perfect day!! You won the award and it was WELL DESERVED!!

Sarah and James
This picture sums up our evening perfectly. Packed dance floor full of smiling faces and it was all down to you guys.
We can't thank you enough for the amazing time we had on Saturday at Chester Zoo. From start to finish it was faultless and you absolutely made my night by singing our first dance
Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for Saturday.
The day was perfect and in fact, was even better than either one of us could have hoped for. As, I think we told you, music is so important to Paul and I, and we really did pick the best band for our wedding.
You were superb. And we weren't the only ones that thought so. Everyone commented on how amazing you sounded - your voice in particular.
You made what was always going to be amazing day, absolutely perfect.
And you were lovely to work with; everything was always in hand - essential for a control freak like me! I won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
