” We were beyond impressed, The Vodka Martinis were just superb, and we’re a tough crowd to please being a family of professional musicians! Their reportoire was spot on, they nailed every song and no-one stopped dancing. Our venue in Central London couldn’t wait to get hold of their details for future events. They’re a truly talented group (and such lovely people to boot), our sincere thanks to them all.”
