Hello there Nick, I’d go on saying a lot about this band but to summarize everything, they were nothing short of fantastic. While this wasn’t a big party (a 50th birthday can be difficult to overwhelm), the Festival Sons pitched everything up and were spot on. I remark their choice of songs, how they played and sang and their unique sound. Everyone was into it to a point that the band chose to play extra songs at the end. It was a cracking evening made brilliant. If they continue giving such performances, then many will join me in giving them positive recommendations. My sincere gratitude is to you and them for such a great performance.
Many, many thanks for making the evening brilliant. You are fantastic in every way. You never disappoint us. we all love you very much and can`t wait for your return. Thanks again, i`ll be in touch soon. x
The Honeymooners played at our wedding on Saturday and were absolutely amazing! They completely blew us away and all our guests were so impressed, saying how great they were. Jamie and the band were so friendly and easy to book, deal with and so helpful with any requests or questions we had. If you're looking for a band I would definitely recommend booking them, they will not disappoint and are really reasonably priced for such a class act! Thanks again for everything guys! Best wishes Emilie & David xxx
A swing Swing Group can make or break your event. Swing is associated with style in jazz that was popular relatively from 1930 until the late 1940s. The swing era in London used to play music in radios, halls, and even records. However, the story is different; there is more creativity in all types of swing bands today. You have several types of swing band to choose for your event. For instance, the Be-Bop, Modern Jazz, Big band jazz or traditional swing are some of the options you can opt for. Swing bands in Cumbria use powerful rhythm section of drums and double bass as the leads anchors of the brass instruments like trombones, woodwinds, trumpets, clarinets and saxophones.
Additionally, some bands also use stringed instruments including guitar and violin. In London, swing band arrangements normally consist of basic, recurrent materials or also known as “riffs”.
