Joe & Leanne

We just wanted to write to say a huge thank you for your outstanding contribution to our wedding on 21 May. The band were everything we had hoped for; professional, fun, talented and hugely enjoyable. I lost count of the number of positive comments made by our guests – I think people were genuinely surprised that such a high-quality group could be booked for a wedding! Many mentioned that it was the most spectacular, high-quality and richest-sounding band they’d ever seen at a private event. It really felt like we had chart-listed, recording artist celebrities playing for us, though that’s possibly because we watched so much of your YouTube content before the day! I’ll admit I was almost a tad starstruck seeing you all ‘in the flesh’!

You absolutely nailed the set list – just the right balance of swing/Motown to get people up (once they’d had a few drinks) and managed to get in a whole bunch of our favourites. Clearly the arrangement and band-leading accolades go to you, but a special mention for Hannah and Marvin is essential. Hannah was as enchanting and engaging as we had imagined, and you were absolutely right to recommend Marvin – what an absolute gentleman with such a soulful voice. A great combination of vocalists. I’d also like to single out your drummer for an absolutely brilliant solo in Sing Sing Sing – what a way to open and let people know they were in for a good night in safe (and quality) musical hands. Also, thanks for getting the volume and balance just right – loud enough to be a party but not ear-splitting and making it impossible to have a conversation. That lighting set up is really nice, too.

I hope the venue looked after you, that your food was ok, and that all the arrangements worked. I’m sorry we didn’t have much time to chat on the night, it was all a bit of a whirlwind. Suffice to say that Leanne and I couldn’t have been happier – we could have kept dancing for another set or two; we just didn’t want you to stop. My feet disagreed, mind you!

Once again, our most sincere thanks and appreciation for your talents. We (and many guests) will be singing your praises for many years to come. Please pass our thanks to all the performers, and feel free to lift any bits of this for testimonial purposes.
