The Mike Kemp Trio is breath of fresh air in live music jazz genres, very soulful performers. Having spend all my life in the music industry travelling around the globe twice over I can say this trio brings new experience. I highly recommend them. Best wishes Sandeep Raval

Hi Mike, Thank you for playing with your ensemble at our recent wedding. All our guests commented on how talented you all were, very professional but also with a very refreshing sense of fun. Lianne and I are very grateful and would love to see you play again soon. It was a great decision to hire you for our big day and I would thoroughly recommend you to anyone else looking for a jazz band or some general entertainment. Best wishes, Paul Tilbury
