Swing ! You Guys Hit The Nail On The Head

5 stars - Sweet And Lowdown are Highly Recommended booked Sweet And Lowdown for their event

“Very many thanks for two fantastic sets on Saturday 12th May. We had many great comments from people on the night and the following day about the quality of the playing and singing, and the choice of music. Thanks also for being so flexible with the length and tempo of the tune for the teachers’ demonstration and ‘snowball’. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Rest assured that if we do another similar event we would love to have you there again and will recommend you around the dance scene. Not every great band is great at playing for dancers, but you hit the nail right on the head!”


Struttin' and Jivin'

“What can I say? The music, the ambience? It was like sitting in at Rick's in Algiers and thinking you just saw "Bogart" stroll by! We could tell through the hatchway, that the crowd was loving it, meanwhile, back in the kitchen, we were struttin' and jivin'! We gotta get these kids back!!!”

“Dear Sweet and Lowdown Thank you so much for creating such a successful jazz night at our village hall on the 3rd October. As you know, the event was SOLD OUT, but many people came not knowing what to expect. As the event organisers its been very gratifying to have had so many people come back to us to say they were impressed not only with quality of the music but the way it was delivered. ”


Their consideration and professionalism was superb.

5 stars - Sweet And Lowdown are Highly Recommended booked Sweet And Lowdown for their event

“To have Sweet And Lowdown play for us proved an excellent choice. Their music was enjoyed by all the age groups there and suited the theme of our evening brilliantly. They were punctual from the beginning, had a wonderful singer and repertoire and were very smartly attired. They were extremely polite, concerned that the volume they played at was to our liking and all our guests are coming back to us to say what an enjoyable evening it was. Their consideration and professionalism was superb. This was music which could be listened to, danced to and still we were able to hold a conversation comfortably. This is where they excelled. If its good music one wants to listen to then this is the band we thoroughly recommend.”
