Book with confidence! After events, we ask our clients what they thought of our acts. We publish what they say here, so you can read genuine, unbiased feedback before booking.

“Oh, we do hope you enjoyed last Friday nearly as much as we did! Rosalind and Oliver had such a special time, which in no small part was down to you. Firstly with the lovely, dignified ceremony music, then the happy atmospheric quartet (and they loved the Louis Armstrong number) and that magnificent evening entertainment. There were people there we had known for thirty years and had never seen dance before! And the new Grandma had to go and fix her mascara after 'Georgia On My Mind'. You all made it feel so special, and though you have moved on to the next events already, we hope you know that when 'In The Mood' are mentioned, it will bring on happy grins in the new Lambert family for at least the next forty years! All good wishes.”

Susanne, Wedding, Bucks

“In The Mood gave a great performance at the RAF Christmas Party. The arrangements for the band all went very smoothly, and the show on the night was first rate - the band even agreed to perform an additional set at short notice. They were virtually held hostage by the crowd until the end of their third encore! I'd have absolutely no hesitation in booking them again.”

Ross, RAF Christmas Party

“When I heard about you, a jazz, Rat Pack and soul band made up from former AGS and AHS pupils, I just knew you were perfect for our Ball to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Aylesbury High School. Now we are here on Monday after the Ball, I have to tell you how many people have contacted me to let me knowhow WONDERFUL In The Mood were. You were professional, smart and above all flexible! You changed from a jazz quintet to greet our guests as they sipped champagne, to the full function band to dance to after the dinner. And dance! I have never seen a dance floor more packed for the whole evening. Everyone loved dancing to the Rat Pack set - so sophisticated! The soul set was perfect to dance to the end of the evening. You may have heard that no-one was prepared to let you off the stage - the "encores" could be heard in the next county! So a very big thank you from us all at AHS - you made the evening.”

Fran, 50th Birthday Commemoration Ball

“We're just back from our honeymoon and I wanted to say a big thank you to the band for such an amazing performance. Sorry I didn't get to say much on the night, as you can imagine it was a bit hectic! Your performance was perfect, I couldn't have imagined anything better, you were extremely professional and the music and singing was incredible - a beautiful entertainment group that completed a perfect evening. Thanks again, and please say a big thank you to everyone in the band.”

James, Wedding, Bucks

“In The Mood live up to all the great reviews they have received. They absolutely blew us away and I am still getting comments from our guests about how good the band were. The band were incredibly helpful and friendly leading up to the wedding and we were very grateful to them for learning our song (even though our dance wasn't up to much!) I would recommend In The Mood to everyone, even my parents danced!”

Amanda, Wedding
