Kirsty & Rob (Wedding)
“A huge thank you to you guys for your amazing performance, it certainly went down well with our delegates who thought you were excellent. It has certainly been a talking point and your secret waiter act took people by surprise. I just wish I had seen the faces on the people on the front two tables. From a personal point of view I would like to thank you, as I have to say you were fabulous, professional and your singing outstanding. I personally have not had an experience like it.”
Claire (Dunlop Oil & Marine Ltd – Corporate event)
“Just want to thank you guys from myself and Chriss for making our first dance so special. It can’t have been easy learning a completely new song, from a country singer you never heard of and absolutely did it justice. It was perfect and everything I imagined. Absolutely outstanding and I can’t thank you enough for being there and putting in every effort to make it amazing for us xxx”
Danielle & Christian (Wedding)
“Lee and the Acafellas were superb, the quality and uniqueness of what they offer really was a talking point. They learnt 3 songs especially for our ceremony and then did an hour’s outside set during our canapes. The guests were blown away by them and they really made our ceremony in particular very memorable. I cannot recommend their voices and service highly enough and wouldn’t hesistate in recommending them to anyone.”
Mrs Beah Rebecca Kaufmann-Ward
“The Acafellas performed at our Wedding at Voewood in December. They were one of the highlights of the whole day. All of our guests thought that they were truly talented, unique and just blooming brilliant…. We wholeheartedly agree!”
