Dave and the band were absolutely brilliant! Played for my mums 70th and the music was just east we were after - perfect background music for people arriving and then had people dancing later. great communication in the lead up and Dave and the band were super friendly. Would highly recommend!

Fantastic communication prior to the wedding. Had a wonderful warm attitude and set up was very straight forward on the day. They sounded amazing in the walled garden during the drinks reception. I would not hesitate to recommend Dave.

My Dad loves jazz, so when I saw Dave performing by chance I asked him if he'd be available for his 80th birthday do. My Dad was chuffed to bits - especially when they threw in a couple of his requests on the night too!
