Great! We asked Swing Zippers to provide background jazz music for a Birthday garden party and they were excellent. They turned up on time, set themselves up and played a range of jazz music which everyone enjoyed. They were very professional, really nice guys and just came and fitted in. Just what we wanted. We will definitely use again and would highly recommend the duo.
