What people say Help

  • I would highly recommend The Brickhouse Jazz Band and so would all my friends now. They made our 50th birthdays. The music was fantastic and the band was highly professional and passionate about what they did.

    Maria, 50th Birthday, Surrey, February 2016
  • Yes the day was a total success - it could not have been better!! Your performances were excellent and very much appreciated by all who attended!

    Edward, Birthday Party, Hertfordshire, September 2015
  • Thank you very much for playing at my party. You added a real touch of class and set the tone of the evening before the meal. I’ve had many positive comments and I wouldn’t hesitate to book you again.

    James, 21st birthday party, West Midlands, September 2015
  • The Brickhouse Jazz Band played at my Pub the Inn On The Green Harpenden this summer. I can honestly say they were the best band I have ever had play in one of my pubs. Brilliant musicians every single one of them. Really entertained the crowd and created a fantastic atmosphere outdoors on a balmy summer evening. They are so good I have recommended them to a very close friend for her wedding day! Can't recommend them enough! Cheers guys!

    David, Pub Gig, Hertfordshire, July 2015
  • The band was fantastic, their music really worked well within the setting of the two garden areas and was an enjoyable volume for the rest of the event surrounding the gardens. We received many compliments from the public and traders at the event about the music. One trader who has attended many food and drink festivals said we had by far the best bands he had seen.

    Pure Solutions, Festival, Berkshire, July 2015
  • The Brickhouse Jazz Band have been a pleasure to work with when organising events on our circuit. They are full of high quality talent, infectious tunes and are always reliable.

    Steve, Jazz concert, Berkshire, July 2015
  • I have been running a charity barn dance for twenty years and The Brickhouse Jazz Band have always performed to the highest standard and been integral to the entertainment of the event. Thoroughly professional and a great sound.

    Nick, Charity Event, Devon, June 2015
  • We so much enjoyed the band and have had many letters saying how good you all were. Amongst them from several friends who are seriously into jazz. Nearly every letter remarked how the music had enhanced the occasion!
