    “Rag Tag Misfits played at my birthday bash. Not only are they great musicians but their interaction with guests took the party to another level. Music, fun, and laughter, I couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate my special day. Thank you to Andy and Helly, you were truly amazing. I am trying to come up with a reason to have another party. My guests would welcome you back with open arms. If you are planning a special occasion, choose Rag Tag Misfits. Andy and Helly send you a list of songs in advance that you can choose your favourites from, making your event even more personalised to you. I would highly recommend Rag Tag Misfits, if you want a day to remember”

    “From start to finish, the Rag Tag Misfits were an absolute delight to deal with. They were fast to respond to our emails, super helpful and sweet and learned a very special song for us to play me down the aisle at our wedding. They make a wonderful team, the music is amazing and they are so down to earth and lovely! They played before and during our ceremony and then during our canape reception afterwards. Everyone loved the music and we couldn’t have been happier! We can’t recommend them enough. Thank you so much Helly and Andy!!! ~The Kellys xxxxxxxx”

    “Helly and Andy are simply brilliant, one of the highlights of our wedding, every guest said how much they loved them. We both love music and having them play a couple of chilled afternoon sets was perfect, even if we did hog the requests a little, which was not an issue for them 🙂 Looking for an accommodating, friendly, chilled out but professional band with a great sound? You just found them!”

    “Stop here for fabulous entertainment and honest to goodness fun. Booked the Rag Tag Misfits for a surprise party to celebrate my husband’s birthday and they didn’t disappoint. Fabulous music which appealed to our particular age group and interactive props made for a hugely entertaining night – there are not many people who could get an 18 year old to play a cowbell. Thank you once again Andy & Helly for a wonderful night. Highly recommended and would book again xxx”

    “We booked Rag Tag Misfits for our wedding party at Bluecoat in Liverpool and what more can we say than WOW. From initial booking to informal meet up where we asked for three specific songs not on their playlist (You’re the Radio, Songbird and Penny Lane) to the night the communication and personal attention was all spot on. Our friends and family who joined us loved Andy and Helly and their individual style of upbeat and eclectic songs in a real informal style complimented by getting involved with all kinds of percussion instruments to join in with. Absolutely brilliant and couldn’t recommend highly enough if good times are wanted at any kind of party or gathering. Thank you once again for making our party one that will live in the memory for a very long time to come x”

They were fantastic, a great eclectic combo, with a relaxed friendly style with lots of substance. Helly’s soothing vocals backed up by Andy’s guitar licks that together invites the crowd to join in.They have a great selection of songs to choose from as well as their own material and will work with you to make sure their performance at your event, is the way you want it. They are reliable and have great communication before the event. Their prices are very reasonable, I love the Rag Tag Misfits. I cant recommend them enough. Thank you again for a wonderful performance!!! , and our guests are still talking about them 2 months after the wedding! Above all their really lovely people xxx”

    “The Rag Tag Misfits performed at my daughter’s wedding. They proved to be an inspirational choice. Being only two people with minimal equipment they could perform anywhere. They popped up on four different occasions one outside the others inside. Not only did they play lively and catchy tuneful music which children and adults could dance or enjoy listening to, they provided various musical implements for general use. They were very accommodating to our requirements and provided a very happy atmosphere to the evening’s entertainment. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any function”
