Plaisters Hall, Central London.

What a room!

The ballroom at Plaisters Hall, central London. This event was a long time coming, originally booked for May 2020, Covid stopped play. It was great to finally get to help the Securities Finance Ball celebrate. A lovely evening with some amazing money raised for some very worth causes.

Rachael and Matthews wedding – Hanbury Wedding Barn.

It was great to see these amazing photos (@skyphotographyuk) from Rachael and Matthews’s lovely wedding earlier this year. Rachael and Matthew are both fantastic musicians, as were many of their guests, so it’s always a pleasure to be trusted to provide the music for fellow musicians. A very appreciative audience who partied all night long!

What a great night. All the best guys. (these photos are amazing!)

Hi Chris!

I hope you and the guys are well!

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all of you! You made our night and we absolutely loved you!

Thanks for letting me sing with you! You guys play all of the music that I love to sing! Though I only do it to backing tracks – so it was way more fun with you boys!

Hope you’re all able to keep busy now!

Incredible! They captured the mood of our wedding perfectly and created a fun atmosphere where everybody wanted to get up and dance. They were great to work with and really listened to the sort of feel we wanted and created a perfect set list. Would highly recommend to anybody wanting the full big band experience. Would book them again in a heartbeat!

Alex Narramore – Barns and Yard, August 2021

My partner & I decided to hire the Mini Big Band for our (admittedly small!) wedding – purely down to the high quality we saw in their videos and our love of good music. We were absolutely blown away by the talent and charisma from the band (as were all of our guests – nobody wanted the night to end!) The whole team were SO professional and amazingly talented, they beat our very high expectations by a mile! I really can’t recommend this band enough – Chris, Jon, Roman, Andi and all the team truly made our wedding perfect. Thank you!

James Toyne – Sibton Park, Suffolk – August 2021.

What a great bunch of musicians. Out of all of the many suppliers that we had for our wedding day, Chris, on behalf of the Mini Big Band was by far the stand out in terms of ease and confidence of booking from the very beginning. Clear, timely communication, every detail accounted for, a really open and honest method to booking and obviously fair and genuine people made choosing TMBB a no-brainer. Their music speaks for itself, I think if anything the previews and the clips that they have on their website undersells the performance on the big day and the atmosphere they create. I don’t think anyone in our crowd of 125 didn’t have a boogie and enjoy every minute of their set. Extremely impressed with the quartet that we had arranged for earlier in the day, again they added to the atmosphere of the earlier reception without adding significantly to the cost. The most outstanding point to note is the arrangement they made of our first dance on our request (an arctic monkeys cover), it was extremely well performed and made a naturally very poignant moment even more so. We really were over the moon with these guys from the outset. 11/10 will not dissapoint.

Steve Allmark – Sandhole Oak Barn, Cheshire. March 2022

Just a note to say how utterly fantastic the Mini Big Band were at our wedding. From the very first email asking about the bands availability, to the Trio setting a lovely vibe as we had drinks after our ceremony , to the full band swinging at our reception, the experience was effortless and amazing. Chris and the guys are true professionals and lovely guys to deal with. It was my dream to have a swing band at my wedding and the Mini Big Band did not disappoint. For them to play my favourite song while my new wife and I had our first dance was truly mind blowing. Nothing was to much trouble and every communication with them was prompt and professional. Everyone at our wedding said how amazing they were and for massive Rat Pack fan, it was a dream to listen to them all night. If you’re reading this and thinking of booking these guys, do it. They are amazing and truly made our special day even more special. I can’t thank Chris and the guys enough. You made our day !!! Steve and Nicole Allmark
