Fantastic musicians! Heard you this afternoon at Actons in Kinsale. By far the best music gig of the entire Kinsale Jazz weekend IMHO. Wish there had been more people in attendance to appreciate the wide range of music you performed but be sure we thoroughly enjoyed it. Cheers!”

Anyone looking for a GREAT band for a wedding, look no further. Franklin were brilliant and made the wedding more memorable by their performance. Thank you so much Len, Mel and Co. for a wonderful evening of fabulous music.”
