"You guys rock! Simply the best decision we'd made for our celebrations. The dance floor was busy non-stop, you even had people up dancing who I thought i would never see on a dance floor. We'd also like to give a special thanks for learning and performing our first dance (David Bowie's "Wild is the Wind"), not an easy choice by any stretch of the imagination but you pulled it off superbly."

"Who are you're band? They're Amazing!" That is the words genuinely spoken from all guests that my wife and I chatted with at our wedding reception. From first dance to last there was never a break in entertainment. Velvet 5 provide an excellent service at a very under valued price. We would have gladly paid double!"
