Fantastic duo who really helped to make our events such a success

5 stars - Take Two are Highly Recommended
booked Take Two for their event in London

“I am delighted to be able to leave such an excellent review for Take two - Matt and Jake. They were superb and real professionals. Their communication prior to the event was excellent, we discussed the sort of event the timing and the sort of music and mood I wanted them to create. They turned up promptly - were flexible in terms of the timing of their performances, their music was great and they are very skilled. There was massive applause at the end of their sets and the audience and myself loved their playing - it was amazing in creating such a celebratory atmosphere without being too loud that people could not talk. I am hoping to employ them again for another event at UCL and recommend them very highly. They are also very reasonable in terms of costs. If you want some background jazz/swing played by graduates of the Royal Academy of Music and the National Jazz Orchestra then look no further. Looking forward to working with them again in a few months.”
