  • Dear Paul,
    The Brothers of Soul went down an absolute storm at the party on Sunday night - fantastic, really fantastic.
    Many thanks for all you help with the booking.

    Marion, December 2013

  • I would like to say that Tony Roscoe is the best booking we have ever had. We asked for a comedian but Tony is far more. He arrived early and provided all his own equipment. He was very professional and involved the audience in his act. Not only did he tell jokes and gags he sang and performed magic. He was fantastic.
    For the first time in the twenty years that I have been organising this event, when his show was complete members of the audience came to congratulate me on my choice of artiste and to shake Tony's hand and thank him for such a brilliant afternoon.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Tony./p>

  • Paul,
    Soul Legend was amazing, thank you so much! Everyone commented on how good he was.
    Many thanks, we will be using you again.

    Lisa, Aries Marquees, November 2013

  • Thank you for providing an excellent service at this year’s ICA Annual Trade Dinner event at the Hilton. We have had great feedback from guests about the casino. John Harding was great fun and Jazzdup gave an excellent performance, creating the perfect atmosphere for what we required.
    Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the team for all their hard work.
    I hope we will have a chance to work with you again in the future and I’m sure we can trust you to deliver another outstanding job then.

    Kai Hughes- Managing Director International Cotton Association Annual Dinner October 2013

  • Well, what can I say; The evening was SUPERB!

    Thanks again for all your help and great advice. We had another successful event thanks to your advice, support and recommendations. Lee was great, helped by the fact that he was from Halifax, where one our of offices are, he also new one or two of the staff. Superb comedian and the Band were amazing, got everybody on the dance floor and were getting asked for one more, one more.

    Superb guys and very friendly too. The DJ was just what we needed to finish off the evening.

    Vim Savani, Gemco Annual Awards Function October 2013

  • All I can say is wow what a brilliant night we all had. I am the first to admit I am not a Beatles fan but the band where fantastic and from the first song they played we did not stop dancing right to the last song that the DJ played, hence to say there where a lot of sore feet and legs the next day and even some people lost their voice from singing so much.So a big thank you to the guys in the band they did a brilliant job.

    Sophie Hannaford - Mead Johnson Nutrition September 2013

  • The band were great! They were wonderful with the audience and brought a real buzz to the event. Thank you very much for booking them for us at such short notice.As you may know we have our warehouse in Liverpool so I will be recommending you to them.

    Natalie Etherington- QVC September 2013

  • We were very happy with the service your company was able to provide, as we had never booked through an agent before we were a bit nervous but after the first few phone calls felt at ease.The Dame Edna Act was very good and everything went as planned, we wouldn't hesitate to use SMC Entertainment again.

    Anne and David Thompson - August 2013

    Just a quick note to thank you for all your help with The FIG Farewell Dinner entertainment.
    Whilst I did personally thank the lads on the night as they were absolutely superb and went down a storm with our International guests, I wanted to formally acknowledge their outstanding performance and willingness to be flexible on the evening. Furthermore I would not hesitate in using or indeed recommending them with a glowing reference to any other potential clients.
    I look forward to working with you again shortly.

  • Hi Paul
    Just a quick email to thank you for all you help and advice on organising the entertainment for our company do. The whole evening was a great success and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
    Josh Daniels was superb – A great recommendation from you and a big hit with all of our people. He was just a the right level and appealed to the whole audience of 320. Likewise One Night Only were also fantastic....There were a lot of people on the dance floor which is a great sign. Again the music they chose and sang was spot on.

    Please pass on my thanks to both Josh and Ian and the rest of the band and thanks again for all your help.
