Booking the band through Warble was extremely easy and straightforward. Warble answered questions we had prior to the wedding very promptly and we were very clear about the process from the start. New Jack Swing were absolutely brilliant. They played at the start of our evening wedding reception. They played a more uptempo rock and roll set with guitar, drums and double bass. All of our guests were dancing for the whole of their set and they were the perfect way to start our party. I would definitely recommend the band for parties or weddings. They were 5 out of 5! Dave from the band was very communicative before the wedding and they were really organised. They exceeded expectations and really made our evening.
These guys have such a unique sound. They are clearly talented musicians who played Jazz at our wedding. We loved the fact they played a double bass. They are also great people and a pleasure to deal with!
