Michael and the Jelly Roll Jazz band were fantastic for our DIY country wedding. They played two fabulous sets which really added to the atmosphere of the day. They were professional, prompt and completely hassle free - just what was required. They are a really talented group and we have had so many positive comments from guests about how great they were! Thoroughly recommended- and excellent value for money. Truly memorable.

Michael did a first-class job playing for our show. He was punctual and professional, sight-reading his part not only accurately but also with commitment and wonderful musicality. It was a pleasure working with him, and I have no hesitation in recommending him unreservedly.

Michael was asked at short notice to cover a 2 week run of Guys and Dolls at York Theatre Royal. Initially he was going to play 2nd alto but his ability across all the reeds gave me the flexibility to send him the tenor/clarinet pad. Michael’s playing was top drawer and he was 100% reliable, punctual and great to have around for the run. I’ll happily book him again and recommend him to others. Thanks Michael!
