The band were absolutely brilliant. Easy to talk to and helpful in discussing exactly how to get the experience we wanted. They were friendly and played so well. They made the day one what we will all remember for a very long time. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you.

Fantastic, couldn’t ask for any more from these guys. Played incredible music and the wedding procession back from the church was iconic. Thank you!! I can’t recommend Silk Street Jazz more.

Having The Silk Street Lucky Four play at our drinks reception to greet our guests at our wedding really was fabulous fun. They helped create a fabulous atmosphere and a thoroughly enjoyable day which everyone loved. We look forward to hearing you play again, thank you!
