5 stars - Hot Harlem are Highly Recommended booked Hot Harlem for their event

“Everyone commented on how fabulous Hot Harlem were and how much they loved the band! The venue's owner even inquired on hiring their services. I fully recommended Hot Harlem - they even learn our first dance song "La Vie en rose" for our wedding and they offered the possibility of adding a trumpet player to the band to enhance the experience- it was fabulous! We are also very grateful to Gemma from Alive Network who coordinated all the different bands we hired as well as offered outstanding customer service when it came to being flexible about being able to pay by card and asking the bands about our special requests! The 3 bands we hired from AliveNetwork were exceptional and we wouldn't hesitate them to use their services again.”
