"Stringfever produced an outstanding performance combining obvious musical accomplishment and clever audience awareness with quick repartee. We had designed the evening around the build up to the 'big band' but in all conversations afterwards it became clear that it was in fact Stringfever that had made the biggest impression on the guests and most importantly on my client " Jerry Warrillow - The Admirable Crichton
Having seen the guys perform on a number of occasions now I am truly impressed how they never fail to entertain. They are clearly immensely talented and have managed to create an act that appeals to the widest of audiences. I would have no hesitation in recommending this act to fellow event organisers who are looking for that something 'just that little bit special' " Gemma Courtenay - Fisher Productions
