We saw Steelasophical at a friend’s wedding, they were so good, we felt that we had to book them for our special day at Hintlesham Golf Club.

Thanks guys, you did an amazing job, an awesome collection of songs created a great atmosphere for our drinks reception. All our guests loved you and we loved seeing you again to enjoy a unique sound that really started our wedding reception off in the best way possible. Book these guys, they are amazing!

Love the new Mrs & Mrs Clark, Felixstowe.

The band were booked for the wedding reception of my son and new wife. The guys were brilliant, music was excellent, they were very smartly dressed and so pleasant to deal with. From the initial booking of the event I was kept updated, the manager Gary responded straight away to any queries I had. Overall a very professional band. I would not hesitate to recommend them. Price wise, they were also one of the best and charged only half of what other bands quoted.

The caribbean steel band played at our wedding on 6th October. We were only expecting a solo performance but were delighted when a duo played. Throughout their performance they went that extra mile. Would highly recommend this band for any occasion. Many many thanks for making our day even more memorable.
