Thank you so much to JJ Gatsby for their professional, fun and absolutely spot on entertainment for my 30th birthday. From the moment I contacted them, they suggested I go to watch them and gave me a list of dates that they were performing. This was brilliant and made for a fun night out too! After this, they were very quick with their email correspondence and a contract and payment details were sorted very quickly with no hassle at all. They asked for all my requirements for the night and even visited the venue beforehand so they knew the space, which put my mind at ease. It was a 1920s themed party and the band dressed up for the occasion and provided everything from the sound system to backdrops. They were able to provide background music for me for the first hour as people arrived and then moved on to play a full set for the rest of the evening. All of my guests commented on how they set the scene and sounded great and how they just quite happily mixed in with everyone as it was quite a small venue and, at times, guests were dancing amongst them and they just carried on! We were able to finish the evening with some ‘party music’ and the band allowed us to use their sound system, which again just made party planning even easier. Thank you again so much for a magical evening. My 30th would not have been the wonderful evening it was, without you.
