Recent review: One Jump Ahead were just phenomenal at our wedding. We are quite an introverted bunch and they had everybody dancing - even grandparents! As musicians they were incredibly tight, playing universally appealing music and reading the dancefloor extremely well. They were pros to the end, playing fantastically even when our venue, extremely embarrassingly, did not provide them with the hot meal we'd arranged for them. We'd 100% recommend them for any event.
