Sarah, Private Party in Birmingham, June 2018

“We booked The Speakeasy Jazz and Blues Band for our wedding this summer and they were fantastic! Before the day we were worried that people wouldn't dance to the jazzy music but we were absolutely wrong, guests loved the band and the songs and wished we had booked them for another hour. They built up such a great atmosphere, guests become alive as soon as they entered the marquee. We enjoyed their performance very much and would like to send a huge thank you to the band. Wish we could sit down next time just to listen and relax!”

Steve & Jane, Wedding in Wolverhampton, May 2018
