I’ll start by saying that Jerry and Matthew (TwoSlashTwo) were highly professional and two of the nicest guys you could hope to meet. Near the end of the wedding we wanted to publicly show our appreciation of ‘TwoSlashTwo’ and got as far as saying ‘the musicians…’ before being drowned out with applause - that really sums them up. We felt that their contribution to our wedding day was far more than we could have imagined, helping to set a mood and ambience that was so to speak ‘the icing on the cake'. The moral is ‘keep music live’! We had a wide range of people at our wedding from those in their late eighties who are not shy concerning likes and dislikes to a couple of youngsters. A few hard core music aficionados were sprinkled amongst the other guests. All have since the day voiced their appreciation of ‘TwoSlashTwo’. On a practical level they were efficient with the business side of booking, and also ensuring that the music fitted with our aspirations. Jerry went out of his way to help set up a small humorous skit we had planned that involved the music and carried it off perfectly. What more can we say, highly recommended.

"Jerry and his quite brilliant band played at our wedding in Sep 2015 and
friends still talk about it now. The relaxed bossa nova style has universal
appeal and Jerry was really helpful when it came to planning the event too.
Previous to the wedding Jerry's band also played at my 50th birthday in 2011
and my partners 50th too in 2012 so we are big fans!"

These guys really deliver! We’ve had them twice recently, the place was packed and they loved it. Classy instrumental jazz, smoking blues, cool Latin pieces – it’s all there. We’re having them back soon.
