The Proverbs Testimonials

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so much for Saturday! You and the rest of the band were absolutely brilliant and never let the dance floor get empty. We've had so many comments from our guests about how good you were and how much they loved the music so we really can't thank you enough!

Sarah, Wedding, September 2016

Just wanted to express our sincerest thank you to you and the boys for your help yesterday.
It was an amazing day and it wouldn't have been the same without your efforts. Matt chose well and I was very grateful for your guidance throughout.
Everyone was very complimentary and I think they enjoyed themselves so much they broke the dance floor!

Jo, Wedding, July 2016
