"A very big thank you to both of you for the fantastic ceilidh at our wedding. We had an amazing time, and were really glad we had you guys playing for us. It made such a difference that you matched the music to how the guests were feeling, and played some ballads while they were recovering from the previous ceilidh number! We were so impressed with Simple Sounds. Thank you so much again!"
Wedding of Lucy and Gethin: April 2014
"I knew I could leave my birthday ceilidh in capable hands when I booked Simple Sounds. A wonderful blend of toe tapping reels to keep my guests on the floor all evening and beautifully arranged acoustic songs when we needed a breather. Many guests commented it was "the best ceilidh" they've ever been to. A very talented pair."
Fiona Scott, 21st Birthday: March 2014
"As guest duo, Simple Sounds fitted seamlessly into Eastwood Choral Singers’ programme. Their musical contributions were performed with sensitivity, and their focussed engagement with the music helped to draw the listener in."
Alan Tavener, Musical Director, Eastwood Choral Singers: November 2012
"Thank you both for making our special night extra special. We have both been told by quite a number of people how much they enjoyed the music and singing.
Thank you both so much."
Stewart and June Steen, Golden Wedding Anniversary: July 2013
"Andrew and I were absolutely delighted with Simple Sounds! We couldn't believe there was only 2 of you playing-the sound was so full! You were fantastic at calling and great at engaging with the guests too! You were really relaxed too when talking to me and accommodating which helped ease the wedding stress (especially the first dance dread!) Claire was such a lovely singer and it was great to have Claire singing between dances to entertain the guests and also give them a chance to catch their breath for the next dance! So pleased, you should charge a lot more than you do! Extremely professional!"
Wedding of Emma and Andrew Little: July 2013
"Wonderful duo/band. I have had the pleasure of hearing them on three occasions and the standard of musicianship, the variety of material and the unassuming nature of their stage presence is astounding and refreshing.
Do yourself a favour and book them, so you can enjoy the same musical experience that I and others have had recently."
Mike Gargrave, Junction Music Room:
December event, October event, and April event, 2012
"We used Simple Sounds as our ceilidh band for a Cyprus Turtle Conservation Expedition fundraiser. The event was a fantastic success raising over £500 for the expedition. The band were excellent and kept all the guests well entertained."
Adam Delargy, November 2012
"The faultless guitar playing and sensitivity of the violin complimented each other perfectly and enhanced the overall wedding ceremony, A delight to listen to. Would highly recommend."
