Tony and I were extremely pleased with the way you, your saxophonist and pianist played at our wedding at Otley Hall. You really brought the evening atmosphere to life in just the way we hoped. In retrospect, I wish I had drawn more of our guests' attention at the time to the great contribution you as performers made - especially to the pianist and saxophonist after our first dance which they so kindly repeated a second time. Your voice was just as I remembered it on the introductory video and an extraordinarily beautiful sound to listen to - thank you so much.

Camino Sonoro - gorgeous in every way! They were so tight together and have such a wonderful fee - and they even let me sing a couple of numbers with them! So many guests commented on how fantastic they all were and how beautiful Hetty's voice is. Thank you Camino Sonoro! XXX

We had Hetty and the Jazzato Band onboard in Portovenere, Italy for a guests birthday party on 17th June 2017. It was there first time onboard a superyacht performing and they were seamless and incredibly professional. They were perfect for our Italian theme and Hetty’s voice was beautiful. The guests thoroughly enjoyed their performance with energy and great charisma. I cannot recommend them enough, they made an already great night unforgettable for our guests.
