The play list was a great mix for all age ranges, we gave the band some ideas of what we liked and asked them to "judge the room" as they went along - and the dancing didn't stop all night!
The music was great and they sounded fantastic!
At the end of the evening, the drummer gave our 6 year old little boy his drumsticks which was such a lovely little touch. It made his night!!
“The Cartoon Kings played at our daughter's 21st Birthday party. We had 110 guests with ages from 13 - 78 and everyone danced the night away to hit after hit. They are absolutely fantastic, great people who were highly professional at all times. Talented musicians with great singing voices. We will definitely want to book them again and would highly recommend them.”
“Outstanding, responded to atmosphere in the room (Stereophonics Dakota was played in the 2nd half as it went down so well in the first half!), even did an encore which the party requested! Many positive comments from guests on how much they enjoyed the Cartoon Kings song choices and musicianship. The dance floor was always bouncing. They really elevated our evening making it even more special.”
