Onecom Christmas Party, Southampton

Hi Chris,

It was our absolute pleasure to have you all on Saturday – everyone at the company really enjoyed themselves and have sung your praises since the party.

Thank you for making it such a special evening and giving a fabulous performance. It has been such an enjoyable experience working with such professionals as yourself.

I have had a number of people ask about booking you again for future events, so will point them in your direction.

Have a wonderful Christmas!!!

Claire Lippiatt – Navig8 Christmas Party. The Mayfair Hotel, London

Hi Chris (& other band members),

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the amazing music & performance last week! So many people came up to me during the night, the next day & the day after to say how much they loved it & how great you were! It was the first time we had live music at our Christmas party & it made such a difference… it has even been titled a number of times as ‘the best Navig8 party ever’!!

You were a pleasure to work with in the lead up to the event & on the night itself.

Thanks very much

Best Wishes

Claire

Back at Bibis Restaurant, Leeds.

It was great to be back at Bibis in Leeds this November, for a Sold Out Swingin’ Sunday session.

We absolutely love this gig! It’s a great chance for us to do a public performance with a diary full of private events. It’s also a great chance for us to meet past and future clients for a drink, before they get the chance to watch our modern swing show in action.

We’re back at Bibis on the 6 January. Please let us know if you’re coming down and we’d love to say hello.The Mini Big Band 108 The Mini Big Band 008 The Mini Big Band 032 The Mini Big Band 112 IMG_3288

Dougie and Jordan’s wedding – Middleton Lodge Estate.

It was great to be back at the beautiful Middleton Lodge Estate in North Yorkshire this week for Dougie and Georgie’s beautiful wedding.

The wedding was held in the Fig Room, which is a new addition to the venue and our first time in this room after numerous visits over the years.  We were absolutely amazed by this new addition to the venue.  This really has to be one of the finest venues around.

It was an absolute pleasure to be asked to provide the entertainment for Dougie and Jordan as they are both professional performers in London’s West End and the guest list was full of amazing singers, musicians and dancers.  This proved to be an amazing mix for one crazy night.  A packed dance floor and a chance to open up the chance to sing with the band to the audience created an amazing atmosphere all night long.

We have some great video’s coming to our social media shortly and heres a few images we managed to catch ourselves also.

All the best guys!

The MBB.

The Dorchester Hotel for a special Anniversary Party.

Good morning Chris.

The event went really well and I know the band were really well received – the event manager said the dancefloor was full pretty much all night.

Will certainly be in touch as and when the next enquiry comes along. Would love to work with you & the band again.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead

Kind regards

James and Emilie’s Hertforshire wedding.

Hi Chris,

 The dust has settled in the wedding day but we will never forget what an amazing day we had. Made so special in no small way by the Mini Bag Band. We think you guys are amazing. Quite a few of our guests said they were left astounded by your performance. So full of energy, passion and talent. A massive sound. Basically not what you normally get at a wedding. So yes, we did get engaged at one of your gigs. You were headline at our wedding. I’m now thinking we have our 40th birthdays coming up so we may well be making further enquiries with you.
Thank you again Chris. You were great to deal with and the Mini Big band left us and 130 guests floored. Never seen such a full dance floor from the get go!
Until next time.
James
