Great performer!

5 stars - Big City Swing are Highly Recommended
booked Big City Swing for their Wedding in Kent June 2022

“Steve was very courteous and accommodating from the start. Great voice and I had several guests coming up to me saying what a great performer Steve was and some older guests who were about to leave as they were tired, heard Steve and then decided to stay on and even got up unto the dance floor (they obviously, got their energy back!). Would definitely recommend. Ps - Kelly, with whom we had communication with was also very helpful.”
