Ryan and I would like to thank you and the band for being absolutely fantastic on our wedding day. We were thrilled with the set of swing and soul and it was clear that all our friends and family were too! It was wonderful to see everyone dancing and enjoying themselves as much as Ryan and myself. Having a swing band on my wedding day was really a dream come true.
Deborah - Wedding
Thank you so much for an excellent performance at our wedding. Everybody just cannot stop talking about how fabulous you were and how you made the evening so utterly enjoyable.
Lots of people had bad tales of bands they had heard at other weddings and we were so smug we were able to have had you playing at our special day. Right from the first contact with you we knew we were on to a winner.
You were so on the ball, flexible, professional and willing to listen to all the pre wedding nerves and panics. The one thing I never had to worry about on the day was the band. You filled us with such confidence and totally delivered. We cant wait for an excuse to book you again!
Helen & Kenny - Wedding
We were all absolutely thrilled with the entertainment the band provided, and knowing certain family members very well, it was a remarkable achievement to see them up on the dance floor, well done! We are so grateful you were all willing to travel to Dorset to make our daughter's wedding extra special, please pass on our thanks to all the band members for making our day so memorable.
Jan - Wedding
I just wanted to send you a quick e-mail to say I thought the band were fantastic on Saturday night and I have had numerous e-mails this morning commenting on how excellent everyone thought the band were!
Graeme - Corporate Event Client
Just a short e-mail before we head off on honeymoon to thank you and your band so very much for your exciting swing music yesterday evening (and for pacing the opening waltz in such a way that my dress did not dance off in the opposite direction!!). You created a lovely atmosphere, which was exactly what we had wanted and helped to make our wedding a truly magical day.
Naomi & Martyn - Wedding
I would firstly like to thank you and the band for your wonderful music. Everyone commented on how good you were! As the organiser, I was able to relax and let you guys get on with it because you read the evening extremely well and changed the tempo to match the way the evening went. It was flawless! It is lovely to deal with such friendly and professional people. You made our company party go off with a swing. (no pun intended!)
The fact that you have had a request from the party to provide the music for a customers wedding is proof of how well received you and the band were!
I will not hesitate to book you for all future and will recommend you anyone who wants top-class entertainment.
Sarah - Corporate Event Client
Just to reiterate our telephone conversation – you were great and we had the time of our lives!
In the pre planning stages you were helpful, flexible, open to suggestions and gave some really good ideas that worked really well on the night.
Despite the hotel’s lack of co-ordination on the day you rose to the challenge and gave a perfect live performance. Thank you for letting Michael and Josh indulge in their greatest passion of singing; they will never forget their ‘x-factor’ opportunity of singing live with you and the band – a dream come true for a 40 year old man and a 13 year old boy, which proves the point that your performance stretches across many generations.
The older party guests were seen doing the fox trot whilst the youngsters tapped their feet and clicked their fingers to the ‘swing beat’, your music united all our guests from many different eras starting at 80 years old right down to my little niece Francesca seen twirling on the dance floor with grandad at the tender age of 3.
The Joshua Kadison number still brings tears to our eyes and will be etched in our memories for years to come…..we’ll look you up when we hit our 10 year anniversary – 18th September 2014!
