  • The lads played at our wedding and were fantastic. Cheers fellas!

    Mark, Wedding, Cheshire, December 2015
  • The Jack Rabbits rang me about a week before our big day. We spoke for about 45 minutes about what we expected from our special day. He seemed to understand everything I said and "no" was never an answer.

    On the day, they were amazing! We had so many comments form guests about how great they were. Especially from the elder guests who appreciated the old tunes. EVERYONE got dancing! Even those who you would not expect. The brought such an incredible atmosphere to the evening.

    We were very sad when they had to go as we were all on a high form their music, we didn't want it to stop. But the music license of the venue meant they had to stop at midnight. Even I was dancing non stop at 5 months pregnant in my huge wedding dress! I could not stop!

    Amy, Wedding, Derbyshire, September 2015
  • The Jack Rabbits played at our recent wedding at Wincham Hall Hotel and they were amazing! They had the dance floor filled from start to finish, and everyone told us how great they were! A really friendly, lively band, which brought a great sense of fun to our wedding reception!

    Ross, Wedding, Cheshire, March 2015
  • The Jack Rabbits went down an absolute storm at our wedding! We had seen them perform at a friend's wedding a couple of years ago, so we had no hesitation when choosing a band for our own wedding. We loved their repertoire, the energy, enthusiasm and fun they brought to their performance was fantastic. One of the highlights of our whole day was just about everyone in the room going completely bananas to our last song of the night, "Mr Brightside"! A lasting memory, and we wouldn't have that without these guys. Cannot rate them highly enough - thank you.

    Kelly, Wedding, Cumbria, May 2014
  • The boys were absolutely fantastic from start to finish and really got the evening entertainment going. They managed to get everyone up and dancing and blended in the songs really well too. We would highly recommend the Jack Rabbits to anyone. Cheers again lads!

    Tom, Wedding, Wirral, September 2014
  • The band was awesome! Good set list which demonstrated their versatility. Very professional and friendly throughout. Would have no problems in recommending them.

    Donna, 70th Birthday Party, Lancashire, August 2014
  • The Jack Rabbits played at our wedding reception. They were fantantsic, they got everyone up dancing. Young and old, all styles of music! Thanks Guys.

    Andreah, Wedding, Chesire, June 2014
  • We were delighted with the act. Their repertoire was just our kind of music and they contacted us 3 weeks before the date to check our requirements which was great. On the day they arrived on time, caused no fuss and got on with setting up ready for our evening reception (which was being held in the same room as the ceremony and wedding breakfast had been). The guys were really friendly and their set lists sounded fantastic - they got everyone up and dancing straight away. Would recommend them to anyone. Thanks!!

    Craig & Kath, Wedding, Staffordshire, March 2014
  • We were very pleased with The Jack Rabbits , they were punctual, very friendly and made the evening go with a swing. Would recommend them for a wedding!

    Hannah, Wedding, Liverpool, December 2013
  • The Jack Rabbits were absolutely fantastic! Brilliant sets that filled the dance floor and got one of my uncles dancing for the first time since he was about 20! The range of songs was pitched perfectly for our guests and everyone had a cracking time. A wonderful job, thank you.

    Jessica, Wedding, Manchester, August 2013
  • The band were spot on: prompt arrival, friendly, helpful and good music!

    Stephen, Private Party, Cheshire, May 2013
  • The Jack Rabbits were excellent, displaying skilled musicianship with a wide ranging set list. Additionally, they were nice guys who worked hard to ensure that they blended seamlessly with the overall event image laid on for almost 11,000 participants and spectators. We would be delighted to have The Jack Rabbits play at our even bigger event next year.

    Paul, Corporate event, November 2012
  • The band were absolutely amazing. Our timings ran massively over, but they stayed as long as we needed them to without any complaint. The music was great, everyone loved them and were up dancing. Can't recommend this band enough and thank them enough for making it such a great night.

    Sarah, Wedding, Broxton, September, 2012
