The band was excellent, played all the right music at the right time. Calibre of musicianship was amazing. And thank the guys for being very accommodating, allowing the UCG band to use their equipment. Sound was great.
Corey McCarthy, UCG
On behalf of the RCSA, I just wanted to say thank you so much to all of your musicians in the PickUps for creating such an incredible event. You had the dance floor packed from the end of dessert until we had to finish up at 11.30pm with guests wanting more and more! We have received many compliments from our guests about the bands range and the way you kept the party moving. In fact some said it was the best band that they’d ever heard. Thank you.
Jodie Radley, RCSA
