We engaged Flip to play at my daughter's recent wedding reception and I would have to say it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. When the venue is semi-rural and people have to travel and stay over night, I felt we had to provide our guests with something more than just food and drink and Flip delivered this.

Their repertoire, enthusiasm and stage show had our guests dancing right from start to finish. To use a cliche ... they are a small band with a big sound. Brian was great to deal with and everything he promised, he and Des delivered. Flip topped off what was a great and successful wedding weekend.

We can't thank Brian and Des enough for the entertainment they provided for our 25 years in business celebration.  With our diverse range of guests and unusual location they carried out our brief perfectly. 


Knowing how important guest entertainment is to the success of any event Flip definitely provided the evening with great entertainment.  We would definitely have no hesitation in recommending them or using them again."
