Hot Shoes really made the night! We were having a 1920/30s-themed wedding and Hot Shoes provided us with the icing on the cake. They also helped out when the best man screwed up the playlist for the slot after the band finished playing, so that was very much appreciated too! You guys are very talented and great people so thanks for everything. Chris & Becky.

"""We couldn't have been more delighted with Hot Shoes performance, the dance floor was packed from the moment they started and stayed that way for the whole set!”"

“For my 40th birthday last November, I wanted to re-create some swing style magic for myself and my friends. And with the Hot Shoes that's exactly what I got. The set list was awesome, and you can tell the band love what they do as the sound they produced was wonderful. I cant recommend them highly enough. Two long sets just wasn't enough! Thanks guys, we had an incredible evening.”

“The band were really helpful when we contacted them before the wedding. On the day they set up with no fuss, and let us borrow their mics for our speeches. Their 3 sets were all really good-everyone was dancing from the beginning until the end, and everyone has been commenting on what a great band they are. They were so full of energy, and even ended up wearing props from our photo booth which added to the fun- the drummer looked great in a fez!”

“Thank you so so so much for performing at our wedding! Everything was smooth on the day and I didn't have to worry about anything which was reassuring. We were so impressed by everything!”
