"Me and a friend booked Manouche North for a 1920's themed party at a local venue, and were very happy with the two sets they played. The group perform well together, and their upbeat sound certainly got people up and dancing. The band's set list worked brilliantly for the 20s theme, and they dressed the part too! I wouldn't hesitate to book them again."

Hi Stephen. Just wanted to say that the gig you did for us at Heptonstall Church this year was such fun and everyone really appreciated your artistry and exciting music and the informal way you presented it. We all loved dancing to the music. Thanks so much for the evening.
