Thank you so much for suggesting the Strayhorns, they were lovely people and fantastic musicians and the lead singer was also fantastic. I couldnt have wished for anything more, an absolute joy from start to finish, my friends are already thinking of having them at their wedding and i hope they do so i can see them again! what a class act and friendly too,
I'm still singing the tunes even now.
Thank you again and best wishes to you all x Tracy

Thanks for your kind words of congratulations. The day was fantastic and 'The Stray Horns' were absolutely brilliant! They made our evening go with a swing and everyone commented on how great they were. They are also consumate professionals too, very polite to all of our guests and it was an absolute pleasure having these guys play for us. What a fantastic sound 6 musicians of their calibre can make and all the girls fancied the lead singer incidentally!

Warmest regards - CHRIS
