52 Skidoo were amazing! They made my 1920s themed party go with a swing, and delivered a great selection of songs suited to that era. The booking process was easy with Warble Entertainment from the outset and then directly with the band with the many questions I needed answering. They were very patient with me! The band arrived promptly, we're extremely friendly and easy going throughout their time with us and were very professional. Thank you once again 52 Skidoo, you were great! Claire Clubley, Reading

Wow!! What an incredible night was had by all!!! The band were perfect right from start till finish. They arrived at the venue in plenty of time and got themselves all set up very quickly and efficiently. I had previously read testimonials that people had written about them so I knew they were going to be good but I didnt realise just how good!! The dance floor was packed from start to finish. The music was fabulous and all the guests commented on how professional and brilliant they were!! The flapper girls were equally as amazing.... staying much longer than had been arranged. They got the guests up onto their feet pretty much straight away.... totally awesome job guys..... thank you for the making the night! xxx

Hi Tracey, Many thanks for your help with getting us such a great band for our wedding. 52 Skidoo laid on a fantastic performance and exceeded our expectations, they were also extremely polite, friendly and easy-going which made them a pleasure to deal with on the day. The booking was easy and straightforward and responses from Warble were swift and helpful. We'd definitely recommend Warble to friends and family. Many thanks again!
