THE DAY COULD NOT HAVE GONE BETTER
‘I booked The Bounders Shanty Buoys as a surprise for my boyfriend for his 30th Birthday party, and I could not have been happier with my decision to do so. From the moment I first made the enquiry they were nothing but a pleasure to deal with. The actual day could not have gone better. They drove down early all the way from Suffolk to Surrey just to make sure they knew where to come and wouldn’t be late. Everyone absolutely loved them, they had the whole group up and dancing and singing along the entire time. We would have had them play all night if we could have. I would 100% recommend them and I am waiting for another opportunity to have them again.’

We loved you, so many glowing comments on how fab you are, the quality of the music and your voices and appearance but mostly on you guys yourselves and what fantastic people you are! You were perfect for the day we just couldn’t have asked for or received more. So, from our hearts (which are fit to bust!) – thank you!! Friends who came wanted your details which I have sent to them”
