“We couldn't have been more delighted with The Basin Street Band's performance, the dance floor was packed from the moment they started and stayed that way for the whole set!”

Michael & Jasmine, Wedding, July 2018

“For my 40th birthday last November, I wanted to re-create some swing style magic for myself and my friends. And with the Basin Street Band that's exactly what I got. The set list was awesome, and you can tell the band love what they do as the sound they produced was wonderful. I can't recommend them highly enough. Two long sets just wasn't enough! Thanks guys, we had an incredible evening.”

Stephen, Derby, November 2017

“Thank you so so so much for performing at our wedding! Everything was smooth on the day and I didn't have to worry about anything which was reassuring. We were so impressed by everything!”
