What event planners say about our suppliers


“Jazz and Cocktails played at our wedding and provided excellent sophisticated entertainment for our evening. Jeanie has a flexible repertoire and did us a number of requests and also an impressive selection of popular jazz and ‘ratpack’ songs. For the three hours that the quartet played people were dancing all the way through (some non-stop!) and a number of our guests commented on the quality of the singer and music and enquired as to how they could contact Jeanie Barton’s Quartet for their own events. Overall we were thoroughly satisfied and think Jeanie’s band provided the perfect mix of popular and entertaining songs to allow all of our guests and us to thoroughly enjoy the night – highly recommended!”


Cheryl and John, Jeff and I would like to say a huge thank you for your part in our wedding ceremony. From the moment we started planning our wedding, I knew exactly what music I wanted to walk down the aisle to; Pachelbel’s Canon. I had imagined my walk down the aisle over and over again and on the day you truly made my dreams come true. Hearing the introductory notes before I started walking gave me spine chills, your talent is breath-taking. Other memories include when we signed the register and I could hear ‘Its all about you’ by Mcfly’ being played. It really made me smile. We would also like to thank you both for learning a new song at such short notice so we could walk back down the aisle together to Jeff’s favourite song ‘ Don’t stop believing’. It was a lovely upbeat piece of music and is another great memory. I should also mention that many of our guests also commented on how talented you both were, and how much they enjoyed your music. One guest described you as ‘the best he has ever heard’. We really can’t thank you enough, best wishes, Lucy and Jeff, Cathedral Church, Northampton – 9th April 2016.


Rare Groove were AMAZING! If you are looking for a band for your event, look no further. Sign them up today - just brilliant! The band couldn't have been more accommodating, allowing us to choose our own set list, for the live sets and the dj sets, were communicative and flexible throughout, and were charming when we met them at one of their pub gig nights in London beforehand. They had our wedding guests dancing all night, with the venue rocking. Shared playful banter with the guests, and were just a delight. I would not hesitate to book them again if I had another event in the future, and would recommend them to anyone. We have received nothing but good feedback and praise from our wedding guests. Thank you so much Rare Groove, you were awesome! Matt
