our first dance was truly mind blowing

5 stars - The MBB Band are Highly Recommended
booked The MBB Band for their Wedding March 2022

“Just a note to say how utterly fantastic the MBB Band were at our wedding. From the very first email asking about the bands availability, to the Trio setting a lovely vibe as we had drinks after our ceremony , to the full band swinging at our reception, the experience was effortless and amazing. Chris and the guys are true professionals and lovely guys to deal with. It was my dream to have a swing band at my wedding and the Mini Big Band did not disappoint. For them to play my favourite song while my new wife and I had our first dance was truly mind blowing. Nothing was to much trouble and every communication with them was prompt and professional. Everyone at our wedding said how amazing they were and for massive Rat Pack fan, it was a dream to listen to them all night. If you’re reading this and thinking of booking these guys, do it. They are amazing and truly made our special day even more special. I can’t thank Chris and the guys enough. You made our day !!! S...”

You guys play all of the music that I love to sing! Though I only do it to backing tracks - so it was way more fun with you boys! Hope you’re all able to keep busy now! Cheers. Kurt.”

booked The MBB Band for their Wedding August 2021

“Hi Chris, Just a quick note to say thank you so much. You and the guys were absolutely fantastic, you were one of the many cherries on the icing on the cake to a perfect day. Baby I’m yours was incredible, and we just about kept to our routine despite the panic, stress and alcohol. I reiterate my comments to you already, that we’ve dealt with a lot of suppliers and you have been far and away the easiest and most confidence inspiring to deal with remotely. Once again, we’ll always bear you in mind the next time that you would fit in an occasion that we’re hosting and you’ll certainly be very highly recommended.”
