Our staff and guests were hugely complimentary and commented on how well they added to the atmosphere of the evening!

“We were delighted with Spirit of Django. We were having a summer garden party for our son's 18th birthday and they created exactly the right kind of atmosphere with lovely upbeat music wafting through the garden, providing a fantastic backdrop without ever dominating. Tuneful, sophisticated and professional, they really set the scene. And a great bunch of guys too! We had engaged the band before for our daughter's 18th birthday and they were every bit as good the second time as the first.”

“We thought the band were just brilliant. They added a sparkling sophistication, yet fun atmosphere to our drinks reception and meal. We were a little behind with our timing in the day due to a costume mishap, but the band were so relaxed and never made us feel that it was an imposition. We would hire them again in heartbeat!”
