With a strong array of credits to their name, having worked for the likes of the BBC, Universal Record Company, Radio One and Universal Picture and performed at West End theatres, International and UK theatre tours, these 5 highly-talented musicians all share one common feature - a genuine love of the fifties and sixties!

We asked The Sweet Nothins' to come back and do another event in the form of a 50's and 60's show. If it was possible to improve on the last show, the band somehow managed it. Delivering more songs by more artists - some integrated into medleys at key points in the show and others designed to get people singing along and on the dancefloor - which was full all night. Complete professionalism, genuinely nice people and brilliant performers.

We hired The Sweet Nothins for our anniversary party and they were amazing. Not only do they sound and look fabulous, they are a genuinely nice and friendly bunch of people who really care about their audience and performance. They played some great songs, the dance floor was full all evening and I would definitely recommend them to others looking for great party entertainment. We will certainly book them again in the future.

The Sweet Nothin's were amazing! Total professionals in their whole approach including arrival times, setting up and making sure the sound was perfect for the large venue all evening. Right from the first song, people got straight up on the dancefloor and it stayed that way the way through. Superb musicians (who delivered authentic and tight renditions of everything they played) combined with amazing vocals that create a brilliant show. I can't wait to book them again... The Sweet Nothin's are an absolutely outstanding band!

Hi Nikki and the Band, Thank you so much for the amazing evening of entertainment; I think virtually all our guests made really positive comments about your performance including one 'old rocker' who knows his stuff. Your professionalism in hassle free set-up and take-down, and the standard of performance, does you real credit. If we ever do it again we'll be in touch! Mike and Sarah

Firstly, thank you Warble for making the booking so easy and to Emily who did an excellent job. Secondly, for the band. We couldn't have wished for anything better. They were fantastic and our guests really enjoyed and thought the same. A huge thank you to Nicola whose voice is wonderful and capped with her vibrant personality made the evening into something more than just a wedding reception! The musicians were excellent and we received wonderful comments about the guitar solo! Thank you. I would not hesitate to ask them again to play for us. Absolutely amazing!!!

From the booking to the actual event, everything ran like clockwork. Any questions I had were answered immediately and I would have no hesitation in booking either the band again or using Warble Entertainment. The band themselves were amazing. We booked them for my daughters vintage themed wedding and wanted songs that everyone could sing along to or dance to. The dance floor was never empty and the crowd were sorry when the time came for the band to stop. I have passed on their details to several people who are interested in future bookings, including the hotel venue. A massive thank you, absolutely brilliant.

Another amazing performance, everybody at the party loved the band we really couldn't have asked for more. My sister who's birthday it was said "she was still smiling" when she woke up the next day that's how good the night was. Many thanks to Nicki and the band for a truly wonderful evening xx

I booked the Sweet Nothins for my Dad’s surprise 75th birthday party and am so glad that I did! We had a brilliant night and the band certainly delivered. Nikki and the rest of the band were amazing from start to finish; they are extremely professional and accommodating but also friendly, approachable and above all, really lovely people. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I had so many lovely comments about them on the night and would have no hesitation in recommending them. The music was fab, Nikki has a stunning voice and everyone was up dancing to the end, most importantly my Dad who thought they were amazing! Without doubt, they made the party the success it was. Thank you so so much Nikki and the band, you were awesome!! The whole process of booking was straightforward and easy, Coral at Warble was extremely helpful and friendly. It was a smooth process, with excellent communication from initial enquiry right through to the end. An all-round successful experience!

The Sweet Nothin's lived up to our expectations and much more. All of the guests have commented on how good they were. During the event we lost about an hour and a half as there was a power cut, but due to the band, who managed to find a piano, and keep everybody on the dance floor, the power outage was hardly even noticed. If it wasn't for their effort the party would have definitely been a disappointment for all. Thanks!

I hired "The Sweet Nothins" for my 50's feel wedding a few weeks back. They are simply brilliant! I loved every single minute and they made the day for me. Everybody loved them and everyone was dancing before long. My mum is still complaining of her knees hurting - too much jiving! I can not recommend this band enough - Just loved them. Even after the night people are still taking about the music... one guest even wants them at their wedding. Which is great as I'm really looking forward to seeing them again. I love the Sweet Nothins! Just amazing - and so professional. The main lady Nikki is just lovely and steals the show. Just brilliant. Thank you The Sweet Nothins for making my day so complete. xx

Thank You Sweet Nothin's, It was a brilliant evening and the band were GREAT!!!! Loads of people commented how good you were and how there were so many people up dancing even some that don't usually dance. Lots of people asked 'Where did you find the band?'. The choice of music was lively and we all knew the songs.It came across how much you enjoyed performing too. Everything from original enquiry to booking and setting up and clearing away was well organised. Thank you again I had a brilliant birthday.

Warble have a great variety of acts to choose from and the booking process was quick and easy. Warble have stayed in touch with me throughout the process. The Sweet Nothins blew the roof off out wedding reception!! Absolutely fantastic! Many people made a point of telling us how much fun they had had dancing to the band. They look great, sound great and were such lovely people. The two best compliments given to me about the band were "best band I've ever seen at a wedding" and the photographer said "I've never seem so many people dancing at a wedding". Thank you so much Warble and The Sweet Nothins! Xxx

We booked the Sweet Nothin's for our parents diamond wedding anniversary party and it was the best choice we could possibly have made. Amazing from start to finish that was everyone's opinion of their performance. What a group they had everyone up dancing all night and we all had a fantastic time. Nicki the lead singer has a brilliant personality and a voice to match nothing was too much trouble for her. She put everything into her performance and ensured my mom and dad had a night to remember. I cannot put into words just how good this group was and would just like to thank them all and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who wants to celebrate in style. Once again many thanks, Dee and all the family
