“The KD Dance Orchestra played at our Gala Dinner for the conference we were running, and were absolutely fantastic! The conference delegates had a ball and were up dancing right until the end – a sure sign that they were a big hit! Thanks to Ginger and the KD Dance Orchestra for playing at our event – would highly recommend if you want a cool, funky band to get the party started… and finished on a high note!”

We booked KD Dance Orchestra for our Eurotunnel staff event to celebrate our 25th birthday with the theme “Si français”, the brief was to lay on something special and boy die they deliver! Right from the kick off, the dance floor was full; we have never seen anything like it! Their mix of genres meant that there was something for everyone and we had fantastic feedback from our staff and their friends/family who attended the event. They created a fabulous atmosphere and helped to make it a truly memorable evening which we will be talking about for the next 25 years! We would recommend them with no hesitation and will definitely be looking for an excuse to book them for our next event.' Eurotunnel, 2020
