“Love Shovel were absolutely brilliant on Saturday! They were very professional, arriving on time and setting up without being intrusive. Most importantly the music was great and they really made the party. It was just what we had hoped for and I cant compliment them enough. Also thanks to you and your organisation it was all very smooth and I’ve given out your details to a few mates who are throwing parties.” – Pete & Lou
