I attend a lot of professional gigs .. Hollywood Vampires, Duran Duran, Take That, Pink, Lionel the list goes on .. you name it and I’ve seen it so I know what good live music sounds like

24 Karat really have to be seen to be believed .. Paul is a fantatsic contact and takes care of all your needs before and during the gig .. and they are every bit as good as any Mega Group I have ever seen live

The band are simply AWESOME .. they play 2 live sets and run a disco with lighting in-between. They are so professional from setting up to ending the night.
The music is incredible live.. a varied set that is played to perfection .. and Kiele the lead can handle any song she is given effortlessly.

Base, Drums and Keyboards are all faultless.

It may cost a few more pounds over the standard disco set up but the reward for you, your guests and your whole party is priceless. You simply can not beat Live Music.

Everybody at my party were impressed and kept telling us all night long, Paul even got another booking half way through from one of my guests.

THANK YOU Sooooooooooooooo Much for making my special birthday party one that I and my guests will remember and talk about forever .. I cant wait to see the guys again at a gig somewhere soon
