We hired Might As Well Be Swing for our Wedding on 21st March and wow! They were all absolutely amazing! Our guests absolutely loved them and we've had so many compliments! All of the band were extremely professional. They arrived on time and the performances were outstanding! They all looked great too. Would highly recommend! I wish I could do it all over again x

Such an amazing band! Brilliant performers who totally made our night and our guests loved them! Super professional (dealt incredibly well with the slightly more intoxicated of our wedding guests!) and provided such an great atmosphere. Would very highly recommend!

Brilliant. We opted for a three-piece combination due to the small nature of our event (background jazz). Chris was precise in his communication and everything went according to plan. A bunch of very talented musicians who were able to adapt to the room and the crowd resulting in a rather nice and impromptu rendering of "Careless Whisper", which given that this was a company Christmas party ended up being a great way to end the day. Would hire again in any combination :)

Might As Well Be Swing played at our wedding this Summer and are incredibly talented musicians. Booking them was straight forward with excellent communication throughout. We were able to choose the set list to suit or taste and event. On the night they really impressed our guests and got people up and dancing. We highly recommend them!

What a brilliant band to have playing at our event. You played a great variety of tunes with festive songs thrown in to really lift the spirit. A lovely atmosphere created by such a professional and laid back ensemble. Was great for background music but plenty of opportunity to dance too. Thanks for the efficiency in organising, coming nice and early to set up and packing away without a bother at all. Couldn't have made it any easier for us. Thank you!
