“The band were absolutely fantastic. Simply brilliant. We are going to have to find another reason to book them again - cannot wait!”

Kevin & Helen, Wedding, Langdon Court Hotel in Devon, July 2019

“We cannot thank you enough. We booked King Street Swing Band for our wedding in May this year. We searched high and low for the perfect band as music means so much to us. We found them in Bristol and they travelled all the way to Looe, Cornwall to make it happen. We had a 7 piece band and they were phenomenal. The dance floor was packed, the music was amazing and they looked great too, friendly and professional. It went so smoothly and I cannot thank you enough. The comments we had from guests were nothing but high praise, you went down so well! Thanks for helping to make the best day of our lives!”

Lauren, Wedding in Cornwall, May 2018

“King Street Swing Band truly are SUPER!!!! If you need a band look no further! They were always so friendly and accommodating throughout the build up to our wedding. Helping us make the perfect play list and sang our first dance song so beautifully. Thankyou to you all for being so fabulous at our wedding! We still get people complimenting you now a month later! We look forward to seeing you around Bristol in the future.”

Laura, Wedding in Bristol, May 2018

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for yesterday - you were an absolute superstar! The whole day was perfect, you guys were amazing and really got the party going. The afternoon set was lovely too and created a really nice atmosphere.”

Heidi, Wedding, March 2018

“King Street Swing Band performed at our wedding earlier this month in their full 7-piece form and were absolutely incredible; the presence of the full band is unreal and perfectly compliments Molly's voice which is next level (pretty sure she wouldn't even need a microphone). I think the true sign of a good band is the reaction from the guests - some of our guests who would never normally be seen on a dance floor were up and moving, and the praise was universal.”

Chris, Wedding, October 2017
