Testimonial – Wedding – 2017
Don’t really know where the start with the band, they were incredible. Every single band member was incredibly musically talented, you could not believe it was live music. The atmosphere they created was electric and the dance floor was rammed from the first dance until they left. In fact, when they tried to stop at the end of the night everyone started chanting one more song!
At one point our friends lifted Ed and I onto their shoulders on the dance floor and as we looked around every single person was on the dance floor – it was quite something.
Supertones played a major role in making it not only an unforgettable night for our guests, but the best of our lives.
People haven’t stopped complementing the band and we’re already trying to think of the next big bash we can have them back at!
DJ Lindy was awesome too and managed to keep everyone going between the band. She had a great selection of songs and even helped orchestrate the drunken bouquet toss!!
Thanks so much to Sam and the team. I wouldn’t hesitate in screaming your guys names from the roof top and letting everyone know how fab you are!
