If you are looking for professional, talented and versatile performers to entertain your next function then I can highly recommend this duo. Danny and Luke played a broad range of songs and they were able to set the pace and volume of their music to suit the changing mood of the Awards Evening. Anna Wilson - 12 November 2010

Many thanks for an excellent performance on Saturday evening. The quality and sound were superb. We've had many unsolicited compliments from guests regarding the band and your contribution was a major influence on making it an evening to remember for Dee and all our guests. Please pass on our thanks to all the band members and thanks for being so flexible! David & Dee David & Dee - 1 December 2012

The Buskers played for us at our staff Christmas party. The band has some real talent and Danny is great on vocals. The set list went down well, and an audience ranging in age and background was kept on the dance floor. At all times the band was professional to deal with. I would recommend. Ben Steed Simpson Grierson Simpson Grierson - 7 December 2012
