Aaf Dawes, Private Party Event, Cambridgeshire
Everything went very smoothly, from booking the band to communications and payment. The band "Sweet Nothin's" were absolutely fabulous!!! We had so many compliments about their performance and they helped to make our golden wedding party such a great success. Thank you so much all of you for making great memories with us. xxxxxxxx
Lesley Scard, Wedding Event, Dorset
From the booking to the actual event, everything ran like clockwork. Any questions I had were answered immediately and I would have no hesitation in booking either the band again or using Warble Entertainment. The band themselves were amazing. We booked them for my daughters vintage themed wedding and wanted songs that everyone could sing along to or dance to. The dance floor was never empty and the crowd were sorry when the time came for the band to stop. I have passed on their details to several people who are interested in future bookings, including the hotel venue. A massive thank you, absolutely brilliant.
Dee Cahill, Birthday Party Event, Warwickshire
Another amazing performance, everybody at the party loved the band we really couldn't have asked for more. My sister who's birthday it was said "she was still smiling" when she woke up the next day that's how good the night was. Many thanks to Nicki and the band for a truly wonderful evening xx
Rachael Burns, Birthday Party Event, Somerset
I booked the Sweet Nothins for my Dad’s surprise 75th birthday party and am so glad that I did! We had a brilliant night and the band certainly delivered. Nikki and the rest of the band were amazing from start to finish; they are extremely professional and accommodating but also friendly, approachable and above all, really lovely people. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I had so many lovely comments about them on the night and would have no hesitation in recommending them. The music was fab, Nikki has a stunning voice and everyone was up dancing to the end, most importantly my Dad who thought they were amazing! Without doubt, they made the party the success it was. Thank you so so much Nikki and the band, you were awesome!! The whole process of booking was straightforward and easy, Coral at Warble was extremely helpful and friendly. It was a smooth process, with excellent communication from initial enquiry right through to the end. An all-round successful experience!
Pat May, Birthday Party Event, Gloucestershire
The Sweet Nothin's lived up to our expectations and much more. All of the guests have commented on how good they were. During the event we lost about an hour and a half as there was a power cut, but due to the band, who managed to find a piano, and keep everybody on the dance floor, the power outage was hardly even noticed. If it wasn't for their effort the party would have definitely been a disappointment for all. Thanks!
Jan Bennett, Wedding Event, Dorset
The Sweet Nothin's were everything we hoped and more!! they really made our wedding reception that extra bit special and all our family and friends are still raving about them. Nikki and her band were so friendly and approachable and we can't thank them enough. Jan & Mark x
Emma Williams, Wedding Event, Hertfordshire
I hired "The Sweet Nothins" for my 50's feel wedding a few weeks back. They are simply brilliant! I loved every single minute and they made the day for me. Everybody loved them and everyone was dancing before long. My mum is still complaining of her knees hurting - too much jiving! I can not recommend this band enough - Just loved them. Even after the night people are still taking about the music... one guest even wants them at their wedding. Which is great as I'm really looking forward to seeing them again. I love the Sweet Nothins! Just amazing - and so professional. The main lady Nikki is just lovely and steals the show. Just brilliant. Thank you The Sweet Nothins for making my day so complete. xx
Mike Duns, Birthday Party Event, London
Nikki and the band were the making of our party. The music was fantastic and everyone was on the dance floor all evening. All of our guests have been raving about the band, and we cannot wait to find an excuse to have them play at another party. They were accommodating with times, and stayed until very late. A huge thank you to The Sweet Nothin's.
Pamela Lang, Birthday Party Event, Hampshire
Thank You Sweet Nothin's, It was a brilliant evening and the band were GREAT!!!! Loads of people commented how good you were and how there were so many people up dancing even some that don't usually dance. Lots of people asked 'Where did you find the band?'. The choice of music was lively and we all knew the songs.It came across how much you enjoyed performing too. Everything from original enquiry to booking and setting up and clearing away was well organised. Thank you again I had a brilliant birthday.
Holly Albrigt, Wedding Event, West Midlands
Warble have a great variety of acts to choose from and the booking process was quick and easy. Warble have stayed in touch with me throughout the process. The Sweet Nothins blew the roof off out wedding reception!! Absolutely fantastic! Many people made a point of telling us how much fun they had had dancing to the band. They look great, sound great and were such lovely people. The two best compliments given to me about the band were "best band I've ever seen at a wedding" and the photographer said "I've never seem so many people dancing at a wedding". Thank you so much Warble and The Sweet Nothins! Xxx
Dee Cahill, Private Party Event, Warwickshire
We booked the Sweet Nothin's for our parents diamond wedding anniversary party and it was the best choice we could possibly have made. Amazing from start to finish that was everyone's opinion of their performance. What a group they had everyone up dancing all night and we all had a fantastic time. Nicki the lead singer has a brilliant personality and a voice to match nothing was too much trouble for her. She put everything into her performance and ensured my mom and dad had a night to remember. I cannot put into words just how good this group was and would just like to thank them all and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who wants to celebrate in style. Once again many thanks, Dee and all the family
Jane Moore, Birthday Party Event, Cambridgeshire

Rich Szuster-Stone, Surprise 40th Birthday Party, Swindon
I wanted to pass on our thanks for your efforts last Saturday; the band were great with a brilliant attitude and party tempo. You certainly went the extra mile to please and the extras that I asked for were performed fantastically. I have had so many people thank me for putting on the best party they had ever been to and a large part of that credit is due to you. Thanks again, Rich.

Paul and Clare Willetts, Wedding, West Sussex
We just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you to The Sweet Nothin's for playing at our wedding. The day couldn't have gone any better and the band was a big part of that.  We have received lots of comments from friends and family about how much they enjoyed the dancing (there were definitely a few people who we've never seen anywhere near a dancefloor before!). Thanks again.

Brenda Francis, Golden Wedding Anniversary, Hampshire
Just to say a big thank you for making our night so special. Everyone enjoyed themselves so much and they all remarked how good the band was. Each time we see you, you get better and better and this time you really excelled yourselves. Thank you once again

Kris Nasta, Corporate Event, Surrey
This is just a short letter to thank you and your group for their first class performance at our annual dinner and dance last Friday evening. As I said at the time, I think that you are one of the best bands that I have come across in recent years. You are all excellent musicians and you played so many popular numbers, that all the dinner guests started to dance immediately you came on. Your guitarists, keyboard player, your drummer and you performed with tremendous enthusiasm and in perfect harmony. I liked the fact that you have a professional soundman with you on your gigs. This greatly enhances the ability of your audience to have the show set just right for them. The evening was a big success. I have had many phone calls and emails saying how good our members thought you were and how much they enjoyed the music. Thanks again. I am sure that we will invite you to come to perform at another of our events.

John McGhee, In House Gig, Hampshire
Surprise 60th here in Basingstoke – but the main surprise was the singer & band. What a fantastic tribute to my era, beautifully performed by all. Many thanks for a wonderful memoir.

Ellie Duddridge, Birthday Party, Hampshire
Just wanna say a HUGE thank you to you all for giving me such a FABULOUS 40th Birthday Party on Saturday night! You guys were amazing! What a night!! Thank you so much for doing the Andy Williams for me too! It meant sooooo much!! Everyone there thought you were great too!! Thanks again! Keep rocking!! Love Ellie xxx

Mike Rathage, Masonic Event, Berkshire
We certainly would not hesitate to recommend you to others, your professionalism and ability to keep the audience engaged and entertained throughout the evening was excellent. There were certainly a lot of very tired feet by the end of the night. A very talented bunch of musicians. Thanks a million.

Andy Clark, Private Club Event, Berkshire
On behalf of Reading Rugby club we would like to say a big thank you to you and the band for a terrific evening last Saturday everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the music, you kept all the people dancing and entertained. We will be asking you to come back for another event in the future.

Sue and Wayne Lovettt, Club Event, Oxfordshire
Fabulous and beautiful, a real gem. Thank you for a wonderful night,

Kathy Lucking, Hotel Event, Hamshire
The Sweet Nothin’s were fantastic, we have a lot of bands here and they were by far one of the best I have seen! Everyone who came thoroughly enjoyed the evening and commented on how excellent the music was. You can be assured that we would have no hesitation in recommending you and we have just rebooked. Many thanks again.

Stan Hetherington, Food Festival, Berkshire
Nikki and her fellow musician were brilliant at bringing the audience up to fever pitch and then keeping them there. A brilliant act and one I would have no problem in inviting back again.
