The Gaudrys Audio Samples

“I was at a function last Tuesday in Newcastle at which The Gaudrys played. It was the most enjoyable night largely due to this fantastic band that had everyone up and dancing. They were very interactive with the audience, played great music and responded to requests. Not only this but they were also very musically talented and we are a pretty fussy lot – many of us musical ourselves! It really made our night and I wanted to thank them and make sure our enjoyment was noted. I never think to ask for a contact to send a testimonial but on this case it was so good that I actually did! That says something in itself. I would highly recommend the Gaudrys to anyone wanting fabulous background and dance music combined.
