We booked La Java Swing Quartet to play at our Lounge Bar in Mayfair. Their music is upbeat, fresh and lively, they played flawlessly and created a classy atmosphere. Our clients enjoyed the performance and gave us a very positive feedback too. Very professional to deal with, it’s a quartet with a high level of musicianship and great at entertaining the audience, highly recommended!

Andrea and Jonas have been playing at the restaurant I manage for over a year now. First and foremost, their music is upbeat, fresh and lively - the perfect complement to our rustic space. The duo are a pleasure to host and have always been highly professional in every respect. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire La Java Swing again!
