"This duo was extremely entertaining and had a great connection with the audience. Fantastic vocals and great guitar playing. The perfect music for this bar on a Saturday evening. People did not want to leave. I will most definitely be booking these guys again"
Jam In A Jar - Harringay
"8 Strings were excellent last night. The soulful vocals along with the acoustic guitar worked perfectly at Starfish. The lead singer worked the crowd very well and the guitarist played wonderfully! I would highly recommend 8 strings for any venue"

“James and Federico were a great asset on a weekend evening. Popular songs that had the audience singing along and enjoying their evening"
The Bridge Hotel
“This band really helped us out in a sticky situation - a band pulled out just days before the event and this duo really pulled through at the very last minute! They did some great song covers and they were willing to change some of their songs to match our family friendly event. They were both really friendly and easy to talk to on the day and got on with all their own set up. Prior to the event they were easy to contact and responded quickly to my queries, sending across all their H&S docs on request. Would definitely recommend!”
