The Pranksters Reviews
    We were incredibly pleased and impressed with the band. Not only did they have a great sound and were really professional,but the quality of the music was simply incredible. Everyone who was at the wedding has commented on how great the band was and it was such a great way to finish off our special day. We couldn't have been happier with the band and we are really thankful to them for everything.

    Band were incredible. We had asked them to learn our first dance (Natalie Cole-everlasting love ) and even though it's not their usual style it was truly better than we could have hoped for. The dancefloor was full all night and they were just brilliant entertainers and it made for such a great evening
