Hi Jennie, Apologies for the delayed reply - we've been on honeymoon and only just returned. The Street Dixie Band were fab! Completely blended with our feel for the day, everyone commented on how great they were and different from the usual string quartet. If I had cause to, I'd definitely book them again and I would definitely recommend them onto other people. Booking process was easy, and questions were answered quickly and they certainly lived up to our expectations.... they were brilliant! Thanks so much.
Jeff and the guys were excellent. Really down to earth and good fun. They were flexible with timings and really looked the part. They sounded great on the stand and attracted a lot of attention from the passing crowds. My client was also very impressed and pleased with the band we had chosen. Thank you again and looking forward to the next show.
