Testimonials

Absolutely BRILLIANT!!!
Abi - Bride
It takes a strong band to keep an Anglo-Irish wedding bouncing from the first minute till the last; AKA did just that, and then some! Many thanks to Matt & the Gang for contributing to a day that will live long in memories from Donegal to Melbourne! You guys were phenomenal!
Jo

We are still absolutely buzzing and adrenaline is now running low but this is one email I knew I just had to write today.
Words really can't describe just how utterly grateful we are to you and the other members of AKA band and Grace too! You went above and beyond to help make our Wedding Day so extremely special and so much fun. Everyone has commented to us just how fabulous you were. You gave our day that extra special touch and we will be eternally grateful for all your help and kindness and fun shown to us. We are now desperately trying to think of another occasion so we can have you back!
Please, pass on our thanks to everyone involved. You sure made it " Our Day". You're amazing! See you very soon!
Much love and Thanks
