We hired the honeysuckle jazz band for my father’s funeral and they were superb they provided just the right atmosphere to give dad the send off he would have loved and I’m quite sure this band can make any occasion a very enjoyable one. A big thank you from the Ryan family

Absolutely brilliant! Consummate musicians. Couldn't get a higher standard (and we have musicians in the family!!). Pleasant, easy going and just the right sort of vibe. They even helped our children prepare a song.....

We saw Honeysuckle Jazz play at the Moonshine Club. They are extremely accomplished musicians and they created a wonderful atmosphere for the evening. Can't recommend them highly enough!"
