"We have used Sahara for our Christmas party nights and our New Years
Eve event for the last three years and they know how to get a party started!! Sahara is a
fabulously entertaining band, versatile in the variety of songs they
sing, catering for all tastes of the audience. Debbie’s energy and
enthusiasm ensures that everyone enjoys their evening and they truly are
a pleasure to listen to. We recommend Sahara if any of our clients are
looking for a band as we know no-one will be disappointed with their

"Just a note to
say how much we enjoyed the music of SAHARA who played at our Spring Ball at
Whittlebury Hall last weekend. Their whole approach to the event was
very professional and relaxed from setting up to taking down and they were a
pleasure to work with. Their choice of music fitted the event very
well and they certainly got everyone to their feet and on the dance floor.
Debbie was terrific and was adept at including people in with her mobility
with the radio mic around the Ballroom. The band also managed to
accommodate 3 of our members who decided they should have a 'spot'
despite the fact they were not very good at all, very flexible! All in all they were a great
success and a delight to work with."

"Sahara were stunning – the
music was great and Debbie was quite the best vocalist I’ve heard live
for some time, (as well as being a real ‘live wire’ in her interaction
with the guests …. and quite the prettiest girl at the party!). Staff at
Hintlesham reckoned Sahara were the best live band they’ve ever had at
the venue!!" [joint 21st, 50th & 80th birthday

"I would like to thank Sahara for a fantastic performance at our
wedding. The music was excellent and the performance outstanding.
Debbie really interacted with the crowd and created a true party
atmosphere. We have had lots of very positive comments from our guests
and several people said they hadn't seen 'so and so' dance for years.
In fact you could hardly move on the dance floor all night - it was so
packed. Many thanks to Debbie, Nigel and the whole band for making our
evening extra special." [Bride & Groom]
|"Dear Jenny, Sahara were absolutely brilliant on
August 4th. I'm sure they picked up
from the buzz that evening that they went down a storm. They
were so easy to work with too, and we all loved the way Debbie mixed
with the guests and involved them in what they were doing.
Please pass on all our thanks to them! and to you too for your help!"

"Sahara were absolutely superb - they were prompt, personable and
really made the night. Excellent singer vocals and sound - she really
went above and beyond our expectations to create a great party
atmosphere, singing whilst dancing with guests, utterly superb. At one
point I looked from the dance floor and realised that everyone was
dancing! I would highly recommend them to others - by far the best
band we have seen at a wedding and we are very thankful it was ours!
Can't praise them enough." [Groom]

and the other members of Sahara for the wonderful performance
you gave at our wedding on 16th June. Your choice of music was
excellent (both for the band and the disco afterwards) and kept
the dance floor full all night. We've received load of comments
on how great you were, especially about you going into the
audience and getting them to sing along with you. In fact, our
Irish guests (and a few others) were still singing away at 3
o'clock in the morning! Thanks again for a perfect end to what
was a wonderful day. With love from. Dawn & Matt Gough" [Bride & Groom]
