Wedding, 1 year ago

Well, what can I say? These guys were absolutely fantastic! Firstly, my husband and I spent a very long time looking for a band we wanted - my husband is a musician and I'm very particular about my tastes so it meant that what should've been an easy task ended up being very tricky. But after many hours of searching, we found The PG Swing Band and instantly fell in love from the short video that they posted. And the real-life band was even better than we'd hoped. Phoebe herself was so helpful with our song choices - including learning our first dance. The venue we had was small, and not the easiest of places to get to, but they were there on time and were even patient enough with the small delay in setting up. Phoebe came and found me straight away to say congratulations and to check everything was OK, as well as compliment us on our first dance choice, with was a lovely touch. The band itself were fantastic and the addition of the trumpet player just made the whole thing really special. There wasn't a note out of place from the musicians - my husband spent a lot of his time simply appreciating the skill of the guitarist - and Phoebe was pitch perfect. I genuinely cannot recommend this band enough.

Wedding E, 2 years ago

Phoebe and her band of boys were amazing ... From initial booking through to final performance everything was perfect. The playlist, the way the band looked and sounded, all extremely professional and very friendly. Every guest commented on them and the dancing never stopped
