He was perfect. So many compliments.
Phil played @ our wedding on 13/11/2021 Colehayes Park. We had a few hiccups on the day of the wedding and in the words of my husband, i felt i could relax once Phil arrived as he was able to reassure him registrars running late was normal and just because of his laid back calming demeanour. Phil played solo acoustic for the ceremony and welcome drinks. He then was joined by a drummer for the evening and rocked the night away. He was perfect. So many compliments. Its not easy finding suppliers when you live 200 miles away but we managed to hit the jackpot. Forever grateful for the part you played in our day. Thank you

Phil was absolutely incredible at our wedding,
Phil was absolutely incredible at our wedding, and made our evening reception an experience we'll never forget! One of the most important things to us was a packed dancefloor, which Phil and New Heroes made sure of. We had so many comments from guests saying how much they enjoyed the band - they were brilliant from start to finish. Aside from the music, Phil is incredibly professional and responsive. When our original wedding date(s) were delayed because of the pandemic, Phil was really supportive and accommodating for the new dates. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have found him as a supplier - his professionalism meant it was one less thing for us to stress about. In short, we wouldn't have any hesitation recommending Phil and his band to anyone, for any gig or event.
