"Mandy & Jason went above and beyond for our wedding. Not only is Mandy an amazing singer, and Jason a talented guitarist, but you couldn't get a nicer couple. Mandy played and sang Songbird for me as I walked down the aisle, it was perfect. They also played at our reception and pre-reception drinks and everyone said they were absolute gold. We can't thank them enough. If you want a talented, professional and beautiful couple providing your wedding day music, you won't be disappointed with Rhythm & Gold."
