Dear Brian,

Josh and I want to thank you and the band very, very much for the great music on our wedding day at Solsgirth House. The afternoon music was perfect and really set the atmosphere in the gardens, everything was so relaxed and happy. And the evening music - well, what can I say. The variety was brilliant and really did get everyone up dancing....even if the dancing was a bit dubious at times. Lots of people have commented on how they enjoyed the music, and I have even passed on your contact details to a few friends. You are a very talented bunch. Thank you again for helping to make our wedding day so memorable and so much fun. Our official photos are on - www.dukestudios.co.uk. Click on search/home at that point and weddings 2006 comes up - we are under Emma and Joshua. Have a look if you are ever bored.

Our very best wishes to you and the band- we have very fond memories of you.

Take care,

Emma and Josh Robinson.

Hello Brian,
Just wanted to thank you for the fabulous afternoon's entertainment you and fellow band members provided us with for our wedding. Guests are still buzzing about the quality, indeed a number of hotel staff also spoke highly. Many many thanks and we will certainly book you again in the future.

Hi Brian, we're back from our honeymoon and just wanted to give you a some feedback from our wedding evening.
Swingthing are AWESOME. They were the ultimate crowd-pleaser at our wedding, everyone was up and dancing within minutes. Each member of the band is fantastic- we are musicians ourselves and apt to be critical but we could find no fault with any of them. They played a brilliant range of music from swing and jazz to Beatles and Take That covers. Excellent vocals and they showed their experience by making the evening's entertainment go without a hitch. If ever we get married again - they'll be there! Needless to say when talking about the wedding with guests all they say is 'what a fantastic band.'

Just to say a huge thanks again, you were truly brilliant.

Ella and Kieran
