The communication before our event was spot on - Jose is very responsive and was willing to answer all my questions very quickly. The band were super professional, excellent quality and very flexible (my timings went awry and they played some filler before the first set so my guests weren't mingling in silence) I would highly recommend!!

We hired the band for a wedding celebration in our garden. Jose made the booking process very easy and he was very careful to make sure we had the right kind of mix of instruments and singer to suit us. He sent a long and varied list of song choices. Requests were also encouraged. On the day the band were professional in every way from setting up to performing a whole beautiful range of songs. There was something to suit everyone. We loved Lee Gold’s voice (and amazing keyboard skills - how I would love to be able to do that!). Harrison Cole’s jazz trumpet was smooth and cool all through, not forgetting the great bass Kevin Glasgow and the fabulous rhythm house that is Jose Sacristan. This band had just the right mix for us of jazzy, cool music while our guests wanted to eat and talk, but could turn up the volume and liven up the beat at just the right time for some dancing. Plus the band were such lovely guys - friendly and warm and had a great rapport with our guests. We have had great feedback from our guests about how great the band were. I can thoroughly recommend booking this band. Amanda Parker
