"The band were brilliant. They started with Valerie and the dance floor was filled in seconds. All the songs were great and professionally delivered. One of the main reasons for choosing TC and The AlleyCats from the excellent bands from Function Junction was because of the female singer whose voice added that extra something. They also came highly recommended from another family in the village!"
