    Recently I celebrated my 60th birthday at Firstsite, with the brilliant Electric Ocean playing - really an excellent band, with a wide repertoire and sensitive to the occasion and the guests. I would definitely recommend the band for a special celebration or event and I'll be asking them to play again for my husband's 65th next year.

    Electric Ocean were hired for two separate corporate Christmas party functions for AXA Operations Ipswich. The arrangement was made through lead singer Carnell Cook and they were extremely courteous and accommodating. We booked them two years in a row because of their excellent performances. The band is full of character and really captured the atmosphere we hoped for on the night. They got everybody up on their feet and enjoying themselves. Thanks to everybody connected with Electric Ocean for two fantastic evenings of entertainment. Many thanks, Thomas Hines

    When Electric Ocean played at my wedding they were fantastic, the lead singer is an extremely talented vocalist. The covers of contemporary tracks got everybody on the dance floor, even my dear old dad! We didn’t even notice the band slip in and out of the venue; they were extremely professional and friendly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants an extremely talented band to play on their special day.
