" I just wanted to say that the band was fantastic on Friday night for my big birthday. They absolutely made the evening. "

Birthday Party Inglewood Manor, Cheshire. November 2014

" ….a great gold star evening exactly what we were expecting and what we wanted. Simon and his team were excellent capturing the mood and ambiance of the party exactly. The feedback we have had on Facebook from the 100 or so guests has been terrific, I cannot compliment them highly enough. "

The Vincent Hotel, Southport. January 2013

" …simply brilliant. They were very versatile and although they played all the 1920's classics they also played a great mix of music during the evening, keeping everyone on the dance floor until midnight. Before the event they sent me a recording of our wedding dance to practice with and communications all the way through were excellent. I would certainly recommend them. "
