I met these guys around 5 years ago. I've been to many weekend gigs but never have I been as satisfied as with Merv and Maria. Fantastic acts exceptionally run with the customers in mind. Dedicated hard working family who try so much to please everyone. If you haven't been to a Merv and Maria gig then your truly missing out.

God bless them xxxx

Sally James

I went to my first Country Music weekend organised by Merv and Maria last December at Pontins, Pakefield. The chalet was spotless and the food very nice and it was very good value for money. We even had a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings on the Saturday night. What I liked was when we arrived on the Friday you find a table in the ballroom and put your table cloth and any decorations you like to bring on it and then that table is yours for the weekend.
We were up for breakfast early and then our first activity each day was Line Dancing Class with Sarah who was very patient with us and we really enjoyed it.
Time then to get some lunch and have a quick walk round the camp then it was back to the ballroom for the start of the afternoon bands. Then back after to change for our evening meal and then the evening entertainment started and went on until the early hours. As soon as the first song was sung everyone was up dancing and this continued the whole weekend. The music was really good, we met nice people and Merv and Maria and family worked hard to make sure that everyone had a good time. Have already booked to go again. 

Teresa Eyres

We first went to a Merv & Maria event at Hemsby and had a fantastic time. Since then they moved the events to Pakefield and they continue to be great events with top class musicians. Great friendly atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble for them or the rest of the family. Why not come and join us...
