Latest reviews of our Wedding Swing & Jive Bands in Reading

Frankly Jazz
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"It’s difficult to put into words the impact Frankly Jazz had on the day of our wedding. Professional, smart and true masters of their respective instruments - they rolled with the flow of the audience and had literally everyone dancing from kids to the oldies. It’s hard to know how a band will sound or work in the room you have when booking a wedding, but I assure you Frankly Jazz will negate any worries and exceed all expectations. Each giving the others space to roll with a solo when they feel like it made for some truly magical moments. Thank you Frankly Jazz - I hope we cross paths again."

"Frankly Jazz we’re absolutely brilliant at our wedding celebration party. Their music was just right, and so many of our guests commented on how good they were. They were such fun and a pleasure to listen and dance to. They sorted themselves out (setting up) with all the plugs and sockets, so we just left them to it. We shall recommend Frankly Jazz to everyone."

FAQs about hiring Wedding Swing & Jive Bands in Reading

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Can any swing & jive band play my favourite song?

Professional swing & jive bands will often take requests, but you will need to give them plenty of notice. Please also keep in mind that swing & jive bands may ask for an small additional fee to prepare songs that aren't already on their song list. You can view the swing & jive band's song list on their Encore profile.

How much time do swing & jive bands take to set up?

Your swing & jive band will usually arrive about an hour or so before their performance begins to set up and get settled before they start playing. To avoid any delays, make sure the performance space is ready for the swing & jive band prior to their arrival.

My venue has asked for the performer’s PLI & PAT inspection certificates. What are these?

PLI stands for Public Liability Insurance. This insurance covers damage to another person or their property (it is also known as third party insurance). As many of our swing & jive bands are members of the Musician's Union, they are already covered by PLI up to £10 million. PAT stands for portable appliance testing. Most of our swing & jive bands will already have a PAT inspection certificate for their musical equipment/PA system, which they can provide to your venue if they need it.
