Recent Testimonials

"My wife and I hired Electrica quartet to come and play for our 30 Year Wedding Anniversary in July, as they were highly recommended by a friend. Well, all I can say is that they were fabulous! Not only did they play all our favourite music beautifully, but also managed to get everyone to join in and have fun! Really made the party special. We have already booked them again for next year again!." - Andrew Hill, Wedding Anniversary

"Thank you, it meant so much to me that you played Jerusalem and The Lark Ascending for my Dad on our wedding day!" - Paul & Madeline Underwood

"Last Friday evening, the glamorous Electrica were seen playing and dancing for the launch of the much antisipated opening of the new VZ Art Gallery in Dray Walk Gallery, where pieces by young emerging international artist such as Boris Laurentiev and Natalie Richy were presented"

"I have now engaged Electrica on a number of occasions ranging from small intimate dinner parties to rather larger more formal occasions and have always found them to be excellent in their manner, appearance, inter action with the audience and variety of songs, music and pieces that they have played. I would thoroughly recommend them." - Paul Abbott
