Smooth Edge provided the perfect balance of gentle music where required, to the couple’s first dance, to lively fun dance music as the evening developed. Not a remote ensemble but an interactive, joyous and oh so skilful one, who very quickly became friends and part of our reception. The blend of music was perfect and skilfully delivered; the vocals were stunning – with a personality that exuded friendliness and party fun. What sets them above the rest is their skill in interpreting what is needed and delivering that with a relationship with the audience – our wedding guests. I am charged by the bride and groom to ensure I extend their sincere and heartfelt gratitude for the pivotal part Smooth Edge played in their joyous celebrations. I am the proudest of Dads, bursting with love and excitement now that I have a daughter – an excitement added to by Smooth Edge as they soothed away the stresses of wedding organisation and heralded the new life for our children. Guys you were stunning, with the effervescence that every party needs.

Great event at Principal Hotel’s iconic ballroom in Manchester, where 400 neuroscience nurses and neurosurgeons from across the globe were entertained by Smooth Edge at a Gala dinner. The atmosphere during the night was abound with super guitar, keys and vocals that were of top quality. This well-established group of competent musicians played two music sets starting with a mixture of well-chosen smooth jazz followed by an up-tempo set which revealed both the skills and the repertoire of the band.
