We had Northern House perform at our wedding. We had the best day! So many people commented how great you guys were. The set list was perfect and our first dance song was beautifully played. We wish your music could have gone on all evening. It really made the evening having the live performance.

Highly recommend.

James Cheung - November 2019

We hired Northern House from Jonny Ross Music on Saturday, and oh boy what a night!!! The band were awesome and the dance floor when those guys were playing was packed. The even let learnt and played our first dance as well as let my sister and one of our guests sing a song with them which made it extra special. We've already started recommending you all to them - thanks again, Neil and Rob
