A Yorkshire Home blog feature.

It was fantastic to be a part of this amazing wedding last year and reading this blog about the day, we had no idea it was all planned in 3 months!  Amazing work.

It was also really special to be asked to play for Heathers sisters wedding also, a few months later.


Good look with the house work Heather and Paul.

The Love Heart Ball – Leeds, February 2016.

Hi Chris. The Mini Big Band were the PERFECT choice for our event and for the venue. The band were superb, we had great feedback from
our guests and would no hesitations in booking you again or recommending to others.
The Children’s Heart Foundation are having their 30 year anniversary shortly and are thinking that an Aspire/Mini Big Band combo will be a winner!
By the way, I miscalculated the amount raised for the Childrens Heart Surgery Fund – it was actually £31k !
Please pass on our thanks to all of the boys.

Hi Chris,
Sorry sorry for only replying now, we went away on our mini moon… didn’t want to converse with anyone but my Husband!!

THANK YOU THANK YOU for everything. Seriously.
We absolutely ADORED it. EVERYONE has been complimenting you all.
It was perfect.
Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Also for allowing my brother to sing… my gorgeous hubby to serenade me … and I want to apologise for my shouting!!!! Not singing!! Please say sorry to your amazing singer!
I just got carried away!!! Ha!!!

My thoughts about the band…. too many positives to say here…. I’d sound weird if I continued to compliment you… over the top etc!
You were incredible. Service amazing. Out of this world.

We need another party with you guys playing.

THANK YOU again from Andy and me.

I wanted to say a huge thank you, as you were amazing, you completely made our night!! We could not get over how good you sounded, and the amount of people who commented on the band I know everyone felt the same. I loved how involved with us your singer was, and also we thought the band were so lovely and accommodating. We were thrilled we booked you!!! I’m so glad you were looked after, as honestly you really did make the night for us!! Also on a side note (prob not for your future clients ha) but all the ladies thought you were all very good looking haha!!

Jo Taylor’s Birthday party – September 2015

Thank you guys so much for such an incredible performance at Birmingham Council House last night to celebrate my 30th birthday. It’s fair to say, the party would not have been the same without you. The swingaroke went down a storm and your frontman worked the crowd perfectly. You played a huge part in making the evening unforgettable for not just me but also my guests. I’m not sure how I’ll ever enjoy a Saturday night as much again! I cannot recommend you highly enough.

Rachel Garret, Wedding, September 2015.

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
