    They judged the day perfectly with low-key music throughout the afternoon whilst people ate and then switched to something livelier later in the evening when people wanted to dance. I had lots of comments from guests about how good they were and a couple of guests have already hired them for their own parties later this year.

    Extremely pleasant and approachable guys…arrived in plenty of time to set up so as not to disturb us. It was great to have a band who also set up the volumes at the right level so it was atmospheric but we could still talk. Lastly there was no clock watching, so they played enthusiastically right up to the time the venue insisted we stop. A great act and great couple of guys who I would most definitely recommend.

    The duo were very professional and arrived punctually and smartly dressed. It was a great day for the store and the duo played for twelve hours over two days, receiving many compliments from our customers. I would certainly recommend them as a talented professional set-up who can adapt their set and style to play anywhere.

    The duo were excellent. They provided fantastic live music and were then very happy to provide a disco later on in the evening. They were really good at providing the correct atmosphere and we have had some really good feedback. I would definitely recommend them.

    The Alfie Kingston Duo played a great mixture of music and kept us happy and dancing! Everyone enjoyed them and we would book them again in the future.

    Alfie and Chris played a live acoustic set and provided a DJ service at our wedding on August 21st, 2010. They were extremely professional both in the lead-up to the day and on the day itself – despite having to work with us remotely in Dubai via email to organise things and then enduring some pretty horrendous weather during set-up on the day. Acoustified made the effort to find out what kind of music we liked and did a great job both playing a live set (their version of The Killers – Mr. Brightside, learned specially for our first dance, was fantastic) and providing an excellent mix of tunes later on in the DJ set. They were professional, prompt and personable throughout and I would definitely recommend them to others looking for a talented musicians for an event. Many thanks for helping make our Big Day so special.

    The Alfie Kingston Duo are a fantastic acoustic act. Our Cricket Club booked them for a Dinner and Dance, and the guys did a brilliant acoustic set – lots of well-known covers, older ones for the wrinklies and plenty of new stuff for the kids. Followed that with a DJ session as we danced the night away. Looking forward to seeing the duo again very soon.

    When Alfie and Chris turn up, you know you’re going to have a good night. The simplicity of their arrangement, the skill of delivery, the choice of material and the quality of their sound leave most other acoustic duos in the dirt. You can’t beat a bit of Bristol stage-banter either!
