"Ignite Duo were difference between a Covid damp squib and a wonderful event that buzzed throughout. We only had 30+ people to entertain in a venue intended for 100+. Alex and Gene filled the air during our afternoon outdoor session with a gentle background acoustic set that charmed and beguiled in the late summer sunshine. Everyone relaxed, forgot their cares and mingled safely. Our evening session needed a buzz as we were so limited on guests - and were prohibited from partying. Alex and Gene hit the spot and delivered a set list that was imaginative, skillful and perfectly attuned to the size and make-up of our group. They had become part of the 'family' by the end and our only regret was the prohibition on dancing - infuriating when the duo is so good! We found Swansea Ignite to be reliable, flexible, great value for money and a lovely pair to work with - we hope to have a big party celebration in a year or two and will certainly ask them back. Highly recommended. Thanks for you role in finding and commissioning the music. We have recommended your site to our friends. Best of luck for the remainder of 2020 and 2021... it'll be tough, but we found that even with changes it is still possible to have a delightful wedding day. Kind regards, Ed and Nicki."

All of our guests ages 23 to 60 enjoyed their performance so much so I am sure they are going to be very busy next year. So if you are considering booking this exceptionally talented duo don't hesitate. You will not be disappointed. Thank you for a truly fabulous evening of quality music"

"We had the band play at our wedding and they were absolutely amazing! Not only did they make our first dance song sound even better than we imagined but they played a massive range of songs that pleased not only us but all our guests too! Many off our guests commented throughout the night about how amazing they were and asked both me and my husband where we found the band! This band comes highly recommended for any event, not only amazing at what they do but so affordable too! I will definitely be using them again!"

"We hired Ignite for our London wedding last month and were delighted with their performances. They first performed acoustically during our drinks reception, and then played two sets in the evening for the dancing part of the night. Gene has such a beautiful voice and Alex is an incredibly talented multi-instrumentalist. Together, they produced a big sound that was perfect for our fairly intimate wedding of about 50 people. Alex also helped to keep an eye on our Spotify playlist for in between their live sets and also helpfully gave us his microphone for our speeches. Their set list was brilliant and kept our guests dancing all event. We received so many compliments from our guests about the band and are so happy we booked them for our wedding."
