Everyone at the event I talked to were very complimentary about Jonathon and the musicians that make up the The Street Swing Band. The guys were easy to work with and fitted in well with our somewhat flexible format. I would be very pleased to book them agin in the future.
Tracey, I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated the way Warble handled the whole booking process which was quick, easy and very professionally-run from the start. The evening was a resounding success and the band gave a superb performance which proved to be the icing on the cake for my Wife's 50th birthday celebrations which spread over the weekend. I will definitely be recommending Warble to all our family and friends in the future! With grateful thanks.
