Best night ever!

The guys were absolutely spot on. They played the right music at the right time depending on what was happening, and gauged the crowd perfectly. Heaps of our guests commented on how great they were. One of our guests asked us if we had hand picked every song because they suited the crowd so well. Thanks a lot to you and the guys for creating such an amazing vibe for the night.”-Max and Dominique

 

“Our wedding was the best night of our lives and it is largely due to Archie Rye. Simon and Jaime played the best music and even learnt a few tracks for us that they didn’t know. So many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had been to and the best music at a wedding they have ever heard. I have never seen people up dancing and singing before the entrees where even served, until our wedding. Thanks again boys.”-Evan Heugh
