"Contraband played for us at our wedding in July. Contraband were fantastic and really got the party started. With such diverse selection of songs there is something for everyone. Kerry’s choice of songs were fabulous, our friends and family danced and ‘tried’ to sing along all night. Kerry has a stunning voice and the Musicians make the music come to life. We could not have been happier with Contraband they made our special day a night to remember. We would highly recommend Contraband to anyone looking for an amazing band and a fabulous time."
