The Shakes Reviews
We were so thrilled with The Shakes. We’d score them 10/10 for all the questions! We loved how they enquired whether we had any requests and played some songs by The Beatles which was really special for us. We had so many comments on how great the band were and her voice in particular. They were a great addition to our wedding day and I’d definitely recommend them. Thank you so much!
