Just a quick note to say thank you to the Milestones for performing at our wedding. they were AMAZING! The dance floor was full right from the first dance to the last, they had everyone boogying the whole night long.

I put my complete trust in the band and had only requested a couple of songs and they sure delivered. So many guests commented to us about how good the band were and how they had the dance floor full the whole time. The Milestones are such a friendly and talented group.

The whole process has been stress free and professional and we would like to thank the band and everyone involved for helping to make our wedding truly one to remember.

I wanted to write a testimonial, so in just a few words… The Milestones were absolutely fantastic! From start to finish all our wedding guests were up dancing and can’t stop talking about the party and music!

The Milestones were fantastic – they blew us away with their music! They were every bit as professional and entertaining as I expected and were a lovely bunch of people too.

I think they enjoyed themselves as much as we did!
