"Our ‘first dance’  was magical"
Hi Brian What a fabulous wedding night we had on 2 September  thanks to your wonderful band.  The music was just what we wanted for our wedding and the mix of songs certainly encouraged guests of all ages to get onto dance floor.  My elderly uncle was struggling with a stick on arrival at the wedding but by 9:00pm he was dancing like never before.  Thanks so much to all the band - totally lovely guys. Thanks especially to you Brian for all your efforts and time put in to make sure we had the songs we wanted.   Our ‘first dance’  was magical and something that we will never forget.  You are an exceptionally talented group and we hope to see more of you all at the local gigsTo anyone planning a wedding, party or event  - do not hesitate to book the band and quickly!

Swingthing are AWESOME.
Hi Brian, we're back from our honeymoon and just wanted to give you a some feedback from our wedding evening. Swingthing are AWESOME. They were the ultimate crowd-pleaser at our wedding, everyone was up and dancing within minutes. Each member of the band is fantastic- we are musicians ourselves and apt to be critical but we could find no fault with any of them. They played a brilliant range of music from swing and jazz to Beatles and Take That covers. Excellent vocals and they showed their experience by making the evening's entertainment go without a hitch. If ever we get married again - they'll be there! Needless to say when talking about the wedding with guests all they say is 'what a fantastic band.' Just to say a huge thanks again, you were truly brilliant.

"Brian is a true professional musician."
Brian is a true professional musician. Although I have only had the pleasure to perform with him a small number of times I still had the opportunity to see a great musician play. I have seen him play at a number of weddings with his band and they have always made the event perfect for the happy couple and their guests
