Ian was incredibly helpful throughout the booking process answering any questions and catering for all our requirements. They played very energetic sets on request keeping everyone dancing, both experienced and novice dancers. They provided us with exactly what we asked for and in the most pleasant and helpful manor we could have hoped for.
I would thoroughly recommend them for any event. I wanted to say a huge Easy Does It - Supertramp - Crisis? What Crisis? you for calling and playing for us to get the party started in the evening!
We know there was quite a delay with the start time as our meal ran over, so thank you for being so understanding and patient with us and all I can say was it was definitely worth the wait! We had such a great time on the dance floor and I know the guests did too as our friends and family have been raving about it since. We even spotted a few 'non-dancers' getting involved - it was such good fun they just couldn't resist!
