Solid swing and great arrangements from this stylish up-town band - they kept the dance floor packed and we will definitely want them back.
London Swing Dance Society

Excellent! We all had a great time, thanks very much!
Z Lawson

The band was very good indeed; the singer was exceptional and had power and good voice. All the band members especially their leader was courteous, very pleasant and easy to work with.
S Madon

Guaranteed to get your adrenaline flowing with their brand of high energy big band swing and R&B that would have been equally at home at the Apollo or the Savoy in the 40's as it is today.
