David, Wedding in Surrey, July 2018

“Great band who really lived up to our expectations and kept our evening going with excellent live music. Feedback from our guests was wholly positive - a great balance of tunes, played well by great and personable musicians. Worked with The Richmond Jazz Trio to ensure with double sets each that we had live music all night.”

Paul, Stopgap's 25th Anniversary, Grays Inn in London, June 2018

“The Cool Cats were first class and really enjoyed by all. The highlight of all was to see them pick up on the musicality of my eleven year old niece! A fantastic, professional and sensitive band. Very highly recommended.”
