Blue Heart Mitch and the Blazin Jacks were absolutely brilliant. We ummed and ahhed about whether we should just have an iPod at our wedding reception but I cannot recommend this band enough. They got pretty much everyone up, dancing and involved. Thank you SO much!

Absolutely EPIC!!! I don't often leave reviews for things but for these guys I simply had to. We've had many a function with booked bands and everyone agrees that Blue-Heart Mitch And The Blazin' Jacks are the best we've ever had by quite a considerable margin. I thoroughly recommend this band if you're looking for a good time.

These guys were great. We had the full band for a three hour set and they did everything from jazz, swing, soul, rock'n'roll and ska, and they nailed it all. There were people of all ages there and everyone loved it. They're a really tight band with talented musicians and loads of energy! Thanks guys, it was a great night!

Absolutely amazing, there are not enough words to explain just how good this band were. We've had so many comments over the last few days about atmosphere at the wedding and just how fantastic the band were. Brilliant - just amazingly brilliant. Can't say enough good things about them.

These guys are absolutely AMAZING! We were looking for a band for our Wedding Party but we wanted something a little bit different - Blue-Heart Mitch And The Blazin' Jacks fitted the bill perfectly, providing plenty of upbeat, swinging music that had everybody up on the dance floor (even those who are usually reluctant to dance!) 5-star, quality entertainment and the stand out highlight of our night. Thank you so much!

One of the hardest things for two music lovers was choosing a band for our wedding, but with Mitch and the guys we hit the jackpot! From the planning stage Mitch was a great source of guidance and open to suggestions and then to the night itself they were all brilliant, friendly and professional. The whole wedding party was on their feet as soon as they started and they played with energy and passion. We couldn't have asked for a better song list and would recommend adding the sax into the mix as it gave such a great sound. We chose a Toots song for our first dance and it was was perfect and brilliantly done. If you want a great vibe that lasts long into the night, with a sprinkling of fun you should chose this band.

Best party band ever!!! Very professional performance. They phoned us a few weeks before and asked us what we type of music we like, they were bothered about making it a night to remember for us and our family and friends. Excellent musicians. Very skilled. Very impressive. Thank you very much Blue-Heart Mitch and the Blazin' Jacks. And thanks Annaliza for your help and assistance. Best, Dani and John x

We just want to say a "HUGE THANK YOU" to Blue Heart Mitch and The Blazin' Jacks!!! Not only were they terrific on the night, but they helped us in so many ways and were totally professional throughout. From stepping in to fill a cancellation; to learning a totally new 1920's set; arranging a new version of my Daughter's" First Dance" music so it fitted properly, to filling gaps when other entertainers' arrival was delayed. They also liaised with other acts to perform on stage with them. But most of all they were just a fantastic band. Every single band member is an accomplished musician in their own right, but they also have the performance skills to back it up - Virtually the whole room was on the dance floor. They all said it was the best party - let alone wedding - they've ever been to! The Band will be talked about for a long time and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending anyone to book them. Well Done Dave and your Team - your Band completed the perfect day for us - I've never seen my Daughter look happier. Thank you also to the agency for arranging this Band for us and making the booking arrangements and payment procedures so easy.

We were very happy with the band. They were everything we hoped and more. They engaged the crowd and made sure everyone had a fantastic time! If you want an energetic and fun band, they are for you! They played a great variety of songs which everyone loved. Can't recommend them enough. They thoroughly made the evening of my wedding.

The band were absolutely brilliant, arrived early and got set up, got the crowd dancing and were really interactive with us all. So professional and fun! Warble I couldn't fault either, kept in regular contact and always responded to any queries promptly. I would definitely recommend both.

What a FANTASTIC Band!!!!! I would recommend them to anyone who wants a jolly good PARTY!!! Not only were Mitch and the guys polite, easy going, happy and reassuring (For a Bride!)... their music had bags of charisma, attitude and energy. It is IMPOSSIBLE to not get up and dance, even my Dad who is not a show man in any way was up having the time of his life. We chose the Ska/ Rock n Roll set (with some Reggae thrown in, ode to our Wedding in Florida) and every single song was a classic everyone knew. FANTASTIC Value for Money (We paid a little extra for 12pm - 1 am set which I'd recommend). LOVELY GUYS, accommodating to all of our needs or concerns, no matter how small. NOT CHEESY IN THE SLIGHTST (I am 26 years old and a trained actor/musician so I am very particular about "second rate" and "cringe worthy" acts! This band is neither of those things). All our Friends and Family said best part of our Wedding Reception was the Band. DONE.

We spent a lot of time researching the type of act we wanted for our wedding and finally settled on Blue-Heart Mitch and the Blazin Jacks, primarily because of their extensive and excellent repertoire (you'll struggle to find a bad song) and the positive feedback we came across on various sites. We were not disappointed. Each member of the band is a superb musician and together they create an impressive sound, aided by a top quality set-up and light show. Mitch is a born entertainer and a brilliant frontman who managed to persuade young and old onto the dancefloor. We had so many positive comments after the wedding about the quality of the band. I would strongly recommend you check out the Jacks if you're looking for a professional, fun and rocking act!
