The guys played at our Rally and were outstanding, they are brilliant. To keep hairy arse bikers happy is indeed a tough job but the guys managed it with ease. They are reliable, entertaining and professional, we will be seeing them again.

Thanks again - Jack and Danielle

Catherine and Lorne

We had seen the band quite a few times in Swansea and knew they were
just right for our wedding but their willingness to perform the playlist we
wanted and to travel to Tenby was really helpful. On the wedding night they
did not disappoint, they arrived and set up without a hitch and started
playing right on time. The first dance was amazing. The energy they put into
their performances matches the quality and variety of the covers they
provided and in all we could not have wished for a better group playing on
our wedding day. Everyone was up dancing, we had an amazing time. Thank you
Jo Schmo for a wonderful day! Catherine & Lorne

Sharon Bayliss

On holiday on the Gower we got tickets for the evening bash at Pennard Carnival 15/7/06. Saw a fantastic band called "SCHMO" we danced all night to great rock n roll covers and some more modern ones too, couldn't believe how good the Kings of Leon one was and The Chillies!! If you really want a great night and dance your socks off go and see SCHMO you will NOT be disappointed.

Just a quick email to say a massive thank you to you & the band for playing at our wedding in The Gower Hotel. You guys were awesome and we've had loads of compliments from friends and family about your set!  Perfect mix of old and new got everyone dancing and having a good time!  I know it's been ages since the wedding but we've been super busy since we got back from honeymoon.   We've recently had our photos back from our photographer and there were a few of the band which I've tagged onto this email if you're interested.

Hope all is well & we hope to come and watch you play again soon!

Dear Joe Schmo

A huge thank you for playing at our wedding Corran Spa resort in July. The band was incredible and we were over the moon with the reception you received, everyone raved about how amazing you were. Our main wish was that everyone got up and danced, and your expertise and professionalism ensured this happened. We had the most wonderful day and your music added to its specialness. We wish you all the best and thank you once again.

Love Andy and Liz x
