I would like to thank you so much for playing at our wedding!
The band were absolutely amazing. Everyone is talking about how great you were. I can’t believe how much energy you all put in – even at nearly midnight after two sets with barely a break as far as I recall! You had some of my grumpiest guests up and dancing – and the whole wedding party was humming New York, New York at brunch on Sunday. Not very well it must be mentioned!
Please, please pass my thanks to all the band members/ forward the email. I would highly recommend you to anyone planning an event, both for your professional and friendly service, and for your outstanding performance.
Dear Mike, we wanted to say a huge thank you for being part of our wedding. From the classical music during the ceremony to the full 9-piece jazz band in the evening, the music was just perfect. We have been fans of Down for the Count for a long time and have always said you would be amazing to have at a wedding so we are so pleased you could play for us on our special day. We have had so many comments from our guests about how fantastic the band was and you were definitely one of the highlights of the day. You never fail to get everyone dancing!

The band were sensational from start to finish. After arriving quietly and sorting themselves out, they really got the party started and were wonderfully flexible with slightly slow timings due to some rather long speeches!
A few of our younger friends were dubious when we first said we’d booked a big band rather than the usual younger rock/pop style band, but absolutely everyone hit the dancefloor for the whole of the evening and cried out for more when time was up – young and old!
Really can’t recommend enough – they made our wedding totally raucous and quirky and we have received so many compliments on their behalf. Thanks Down for the Count!
