Swing Jamboree made my mother’s 80th birthday party very special indeed.
It was a complete surprise for her and the guests all commented on how much they enjoyed the music.
They were’t loud, people could chat amongst themselves and listen.
Would definitely recommend, we even danced!
Thankyou Pete and Frankie.
