" All of our guests commented on the band and you were really the highlight of our party ("The band was really special" was the comment from everybody the day after). Even the people who did not come on the dance floor, enjoyed the music tremendously. So a big thank you for what you did. "

" Totally awesome band - got everyone going and really made the night. We were extremely satisfied with Jump & Jive; elated to be precise. They arrived promptly and set up quietly without disturbing our wedding breakfast. We had a short gap before the evening reception which is when they sound checked, and even that sounded good. After playing our first dance through the PA as it was a slightly unusual choice (Together You & I - Dolly Parton), we requested that the first song they play was "Rock around the Clock" as Emma and her dad used to dance to it when she was a child. They were the first on the dance floor and then everyone joined in. It was a great start to the evening and really got everyone rocking. The band knew exactly where to pitch the sets to keep the atmosphere going, and we have had no end of comments about how fantastic the band were. They added some funk tracks in to the last set, which kept the party going right till the end. We just bought their CDs too and currently listening to them whilst going through the wedding pics! "

" Jump & Jive were an absolutely amazing swing band playing in my lounge at my 50th Birthday party. All my friends and family have commented on how terrific they were - the skilled musicianship and Mark's powerful fantastic vocals and their fun loving cheeky personality. They adapted songs for me, allowed my friend to sing a couple of numbers with them and enabled my son to perform a surprise saxophone solo with them which had me in tears as I was so proud! To summarise, I would say Jump & Jive will make a success of any party/event and will definitely get the party going! I would highly recommend them. "

" Just a quick (belated) note to thank you and the rest of the band for performing at our wedding in June. We had an absolutely fantastic time and heard nothing but praise for you from the rest of the guests. A couple of them have since been asking for your details, so hopefully you should get some repeat business out of it all. Thanks again, it really made our night. "

" I’ve just got back from honeymoon and wanted to send you and the band a quick email to say a big THANK YOU for playing at our wedding on 14th June. You guys were amazing and everyone had a brilliant time dancing about. I was also loving the drum solo from my brother in law with you all – he mentioned you came and spoke to him after. Thanks again and hope you guys had as much fun as we did. "

" I would like to thank you for doing such a great job for Sarah and Basil's wedding. Everyone, from the oldest guest at 83 to the youngest at 18 months, thoroughly enjoyed the 'gig' and, as well as all the usual keen and enthusiastic dancers, there were people dancing who normally would have to be dragged screaming onto the floor! A great achievement - thank you very much. With best wishes," "

" We had an absolutely brilliant time! Jump & Jive were amazing and really made our party a great success. From their arrival Mark, Adam, Chris, Ben and Nick were very personable and friendly. They were here well before their expected time. They were so flexible in their start and finish times due to us having to hold up lunch because friends were stuck in traffic on the motorway. The background music during lunch was unobtrusive and when the evening started the marquee came alive with a real buzz! So many of our guests said how brilliant they were, they even had to do an encore!! What talented young men! I'd love to be organising another 'Do' just to have them here again!! Best wishes" "
