"Stan Darsh were fantastic! I wanted to say personally what a huge contribution they made towards the event being the success it was. There was rarely a time when the entire party was not on the dance floor, and I know that whatever Amber and Matt had organized with the function band in the way of song choice, timings, etc. was exercised as requested. A GREAT band, a great choice by Matt and Amber.
