Barbar Freitas Wedding at Cranford Country Lodge Aug 14

Hi Daniel

Apologies for not replying to your email sooner. We have been away on honeymoon and are only just back in London.

Beat-Route were AMAZING! Every single guest made a point of telling us how you were their favourite thing about our wedding.

If you ever need a reference, please feel free to contact us - we are your biggest fans!

All best wishes,


Jennys Wedding by Marius at Camp Orchards May 14 (Weddings by Marius featured on Top Billing)

Dear Daniel

Thank you for your email, much appreciated. Just got back to the office in Knysna!

Once again, it was great to work with Beat-Route and oh my word, Thobeka has a stunning voice. I’m so pleased that Jenny decided to book her. And also a huge thank you to you and the guys for playing nonstop without a break, making up for time as we had booked until about 7-ish and only required your services till 17h45.

Should you ever need a reference to any prospective client, let me know, I’d be more than happy to provide one. I would have loved having a band of your calibre in the Garden Route, and in the Cape Town area.

Thank you again for another very successful event.

All the very best, until the next time!

Thank you from all of us.

Nadine Craigs Wedding Zimbali July ‘12

Hi Daniel,

I didn’t even get a chance to chat to you guys on the day! L
All went so quick! In saying that, I most certainly heard your beautiful music and I cannot thank you enough for contributing to our wedding day and making
it a magical one! Your professionalism and helpfulness leading up to the day was truly remarkable and you were always available to chat or answer any questions (and instructions!) I had immediately.
For this I thank you and will most certainly recommend you to any future bride and/or event.
Good luck to you and the rest of Beat-route, I wish you a very successful future and will most certainly see you again at Market sometime.
I will forward you some photos when I receive them for sure! J
Best regards,

Katherine Pembrooke’s Wedding at Thorpe Lodge Nov ‘10

Thank you so much for adding such a special touch to our wedding day. Once we heard the first few notes of our chosen entrance song we knew the tone had been set for the day. That was such a happy and special moment for my dad and I. Although Pete and I missed out on most of the music while we were having photos, the guests loved it and it created a great atmosphere. We are so glad we made the decision to choose Beat Route for our wedding.

You truly did - your music was amazing and you guys really set the tone for the most amazing party.

I cannot tell you how many people complimented you guys - you were truly excellent. I certainly will put some comments on your web.
So once again thanks for contributing to an awesome evening.
