Jo Taylor’s birthday party. Birmingham September 2015.

Hi Chris and all in the MBB band,

I’ve left a review on Facebook but I just wanted to drop a more formal note to thank you for your incredible performance on Saturday night for my 30th birthday party at Birmingham Council House. It genuinely was the best night of my life and there is no doubt that you guys contributed to this massively.

The lead man was truly outstanding, judging the crowd to perfection. Swingaroke worked so well and I really appreciate the time you took to compile a wonderful second set.

The feedback we had from all of the guests was how phenomenal you were.

You were everything I hoped you would be and you actually brought a tear to my eye when I heard you sound checking because you were that good.

I would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone looking for a swing band and really hope to see you all again soon. Please can you add me to your mailing list for any events where the public are able to purchase tickets.

Thanks again for a glorious evening. I am truly grateful and I will never forget it!

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for making our evening reception unforgettable! The band were just amazing and the atmosphere was fantastic, we can’t thank you enough. It was exactly what we wanted, and felt like a real party in the evening! One of my friends is a serial wedding guest, and it wouldn’t surprise me if she attended 52 weddings a year, so when she came to me to say how fabulous the band were I was so pleased! Thanks again, and please keep in touch. If you guys are ever visiting Dubai do let us know! Thanks again, Rachel and Steven xxx

The Mini Big Band were absolutely wonderful, everyone is still talking about how great you were! The musicians are unbelievably talented and gave the most amazing performance, they were all so lovely and we did not even notice them setting up. They made the evening of our wedding perfect and the Jazz trio throughout the day were the finishing touch and made for such a relaxing atmosphere. Thank you to you for all your help, the booking process was so easy, there was no stress involved at all. Thank you from myself and Callum and everyone who attended our wedding day 🙂

The Mini Big Band were the highlight of the evening. They made a special accommodation for a song choice for our first dance. They were friendly and super fun to listen and chat with. They blew everyone away. They made the night, I was so happy to have booked them!

Just a quick line to let you know that, once again, we were delighted with The Mini Big Band performance. Sophie and Ben had a wonderful day and you really did help the evening go with a ‘swing’! We have had a lot of comments from our guests about the music and how much they enjoyed it. You are so professional from set up to performance and really just lovely guys to have around…I must say …knowing it was you was one less thing for me to worry about. So a big thank you for coming up to Cumbria for us again!! I’m sure you have been as busy as hope this finds you all not too exhausted!!!

The dust has settled and I would now like to say a huge thank you to you and the rest of The Mini Big Band for making our wedding extravaganza such a brilliant celebration. We had the most amazing three days and your headline act on Day One set the tone for the events ahead. In spite of things out of their control, your guys were brilliant, bending over backwards to accommodate the revised timetable, and rocked it. Thank you once again- we will be recommending you to one and all. Please pass this on to the rest of the band.

Firstly thank you all so, SO much for your really wonderful contribution to our wedding – it was so nice to meet you finally after the many months of planning and all of our guests just had a wonderful time during the evening’s entertainment! I am also delighted that we decided to have the jazz quartet in the garden during the drinks reception as that was a perfect addition to the (happily very sunny! J) afternoon and set just the right tone. I should also say thank you so much for indulging my other half and letting him sing a couple of numbers with the band – it made his evening! If I had anything to complain about it was simply that we couldn’t go on dancing all night!
