"Thank you to Freak Music Agency for providing us with a really good duo for my husband's 70th birthday. The Black Marcs is a superb duo and our guests enjoyed the music. Once we booked them through you they communicated well with us and provided the music we asked for. We couldn't have asked for more. Well done Mark and Neil of the Black Marcs. Our celebration was a success."

Maureen Wright, June 2016

"A massive thank you to you both for topping off an already very special surprise celebration for me. Brilliant musicians playing many of my favourite tracks. Elbow / Dylan / Embrace / Oasis - special moments that I will remember undoubtedly. Everyone off their feet till the early hours but I must apologise for some of the quite tragic dancing at times (I've seen some of the videos) haha. Cheers again fellas. Top night. Top people."

"Thank you mark and Neil. Superb evening and you were amazing! Thank for making a special family event even more special ! Thank you both!!"
