Brackenridge – Testimonial – 6th March, 2017


Brackenridge is one of the countries best wedding venues.

Here is a fresh testimonial from a couple that hired us for their wedding reception at Brackenridge:

“To the best wedding / covers band – EVER!!!
We wanted to, no absolutely had to, write this testimonial of our own accord to say how incredibly impressed and super stoked we were when you played our wedding.
From our first dealings with the band you were easy to deal with and accommodating to our requests (including learning a new Sterophonics song for us that was special to us) and creating a more rockier set list for the reception.
What you had prepared was killer and everyone was up on the dance floor all night. It wasn’t you’re typical “Wedding Set List” it was fresh, varied, modern, had the classics, and was super polished.
We also booked you to play an acoustic set for us during our Saturday BBQ for 3 hours and what was planned as a simple easy BBQ turned in to another amazing day / night party.
The song choices for Saturday were bang on and had people approaching us all day expressing how amazing the band was.
So from Simone and I both thank you for helping us create the wedding we dreamed of, rock on guys!!
Simone and Gavin
