Great evening of music and dancing. Thank you John and Julie for running the evening so well. The setup was perfect and all my guests had a great time. Thanks also Ben for putting me in touch with DJ John Scott. Id highly recommend the team.

We are so happy that we booked with you. Susan helped so much throughout the preparation period and on the night and the whole evening ran very smoothly. We have had many compliments about the Horse Racing and would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Susan. Her communication throughout the lead up and on the night helped considerably. We would definitely book again in the future. Thank you so much Ben with all of your help since we initially contacted you! We definitely will be back for future events.

Dear Ben, Oh What a Night!!! I would just like to say thank you for all that you have done with me towards the Centenary celebrations for Liphook GC this year. I have enjoyed working with you and have recommended your agency to quite a few people now! Thank you for your timely responses, great organisation and your Act recommendations. Both Jacuzzi Jazz and The Other Guys were perfect for the party on Saturday. They delighted the audience and were terrific in all respects. DJ John Scott was great too. I very much hope that the legacy of the Centenary will be more social events and that I may be contacting you again in future. Meantime, thank you again for all that you have done. Caroline Jones

RU40 #1 UB40 Tribute band


Since 2000, RU40 have established themselves as the most musically authentic tribute band to UB40, playing all the classic hits from "Red Red Wine" to "Rat In The Kitchen", from "Food For Thought" to "One In Ten" and beyond!


Based in South of the UK, RU40 have headlined in major venues and festivals across the South, entertaining reggae fans and ensuring they sing along to "Cherry O", "Homely Girl"," Here I am Baby" "Kingston Town" and many more of UB40's string of hits.

In a very successful career, UB40 had over 50 UK charting singles and sold over 70 million worldwide. They had two No 1's in the USA (Red Red Wine, Can't Help Falling in Love) and toured the world.


It takes a special group of musicians to authentically re-create the distinctive UB40 sound and the members of RU40 have many years of experience playing reggae and many other styles. The roots of RU40 go back as far as UB40 itself to 1979 when Danny Smith, Roy Brown and Martin Brisland formed Dub'allup - a very successful band that played original reggae and dub music. The initial band lasted till 1987 still reforming and playing at times over the years.


At the turn of the new millennium it was decided to use their long experience of playing reggae music to play the UB40 songbook. RU40 has built a deserved reputation as an excting live band in its own right with charismatic lead singer Danny ensuring audiences dance and sing along to their favourite tunes. It is no exaggeration to say the Danny sounds more like Ali Campbell than the man himself!


The RU40 line up comprises Danny Smith (guitar and vox); Roy Brown (bass and vox); Tim Smart (drums); Martin Brisland (keys); Andy Powles (keys, guitar and vox); Bogdan Dudzik (sax) and Julian Caesar (percussion and vox).


RU40 are the perfect band to create the feel good party atmosphere so don't miss this opportunity to catch one of the most uplifting live acts around.
