We hired this band for our church 25th anniversary. The band were fun and professional and also helped with the little ones who wanted to join in. A very enjoyable evening for everyone. Thank you so much for a great evening.

I booked Rejigged for a Retirement Party and everything was arranged very efficiently. The band were very flexible and fitted in with supper and speeches etc. The music was really great it’s just a shame that people were a bit slow in joining in. All in all it was a very good event and I would be happy to recommend Rejigged.

"Rejigged played at our primary school barn dance which was a great success. They were very happy to accommodate our cowboy theme, turning up in costume and with Stars and Stripes flags. Chris was good at keeping in touch before the event, which was very reassuring. The music fitted the bill and kept us all on our feet. It was a fun evening and good value for money.”

"This band played at my mother's 70th birthday party. They were excellent. Really accommodating, enthusiastic and friendly. Nearly everyone got up and had a dance, and had great fun (even the self-proclaimed non-dancers). I couldn't recommend them more.

Your music was excellent and appropriate, it was not too loud so everyone could hold a conversation and be heard, well done Rejigged.”
Martin, Manager Monkton Nature Reserve
The event was very successful, raising £7,000 in funds... Thank you so much for your contribution towards that...We were certainly very grateful to have you

We hired Rejigged for our wedding reception. The guests all loved joining in and learning the dances. Best decision of the day (other than saying I do) was hiring them.
