From customers:

Pete M, 4 years ago

I just wanted to pass on our thanks again for your performance at our wedding, so many of our guests commented on how great it was and how suited it was to the occasion, you were so accommodating and obliging, thank you so very much"

Kazoo S, 3 years ago

The J-Tones were amazing to work with and brought our campaign for Young's Seafood to life brilliantly. The guys were professional, extremely hard working and the creative input they had into the musical arrangements was staggering and added an immense amount of value. Everyone we visited with a song was thrilled and our client was extremely happy with the results. I can't recommend them enough!
