"Your band was outstanding. Many of our guests commented on how lovely it all was and what a great time they had. We were very pleased with the songs played and the professionalism...Thanks again."
Customer review by Mike Tunnicliff, Corporate & Hospitality Manager, Genting Club, Derby
"A fantastic idea, stylishly presented and great fun. The band were faultless, and with an extensive repertoire of jazz, swing and big-band classics, who could resist the chance of getting up on stage and having a go at their favourite Sinatra or Simone?
Jazzeoke Fundraising Gala Event, Christmas for Kids."
Customer review by Stevie Wyatt, Sound Engineer (Boy George, The Corrs, Tynchy Strider)
"We were very pleased with Limelight's performance. They were set up on time and seemed to know exactly what to do. A very professional group.
The music and performance were excellent and complemented our themed evening very nicely. Our only wish is that they would have had longer to play but alas, our various activities took up a lot of time...
We would definitely recommend Limelight to friends."
Customer review by Olatowun Candice-Johnson
"The music was ideal for my birthday party and everything fitted in perfectly. My friends all said they enjoyed it, and some of those happy tunes were going round my head for days!"
Customer review by Mike Griffiths
"Limelight were great and extremely helpful and kept in constant contact and dealt with the hotel directly saving us time and effort.
Overall we would use Alive Network again and would recommend it to our peers in the industry.
Customer review by Sandra Bastianelli
"Limelight performed at the Battersea Barge and received a warm and enthusiastic response from the audience. Their stylish interpretations of the mainly American songbook were supported by great musicianship from the band and the male and female vocalists really sold the songs!
We hope they return here soon for another great night of jazz. "
Customer review by Peter Lewis, proprietor, Battersea Barge
"The evening was amazing and the music perfect."
Customer review by Lawrence & Catherine Caroll
"I can't thank you and the rest of Limelight enough for the fantastic music you provided for my joint 50th birthday party last year.
The choice of songs and quality of sound was just superb. There was a variety of ages at the party and the music suited us all whether we were up on the dance floor or chatting with friends and family.
I have had no hesitation in recommending you to friends and neighbours and will continue to do so.
I just need another excuse for a party to book Limelight again!"
Customer review by Jayne Hosmer
Just a note to say that the band were fantastic.
They really helped make the wedding reception a roaring success and all ages absolutely loved them. They were also very efficient and flexible in setting up and packing up - fitting in perfectly with the rest of our arrangements.
Please thank them all on our behalf.
