The whole thing was stress-free, fun and the guests loved them!

5 stars - The Wize-Guys are Highly Recommended booked The Wize-Guys for their Wedding in Cumbria

“The Wize Guys were absolutely brilliant. They turned up on time, sorted themselves out and got set up completely independently, and then performed 3 fabulous sets, completely in line with the mood of the wedding at the different points. The whole thing was stress-free, fun and the guests loved them! We will definitely book them again if we need a band in the future. ”

What a success

5 stars - The Wize-Guys are Highly Recommended booked The Wize-Guys for their event in Lincolnshire

“We booked the “Wize Guys” for a 18th, 21st, and 25th Wedding anniversary party on 9/7/16.  So a mixed age group. What a success. We loved their music and I would highly recommend them to anyone who likes Jazz and Swing. So many people have actually written to me to ask about the music. I would also say that we booked extra instruments and the Double Bass particularly really does add an authentic jazz sound. Roger was also a brilliant DJ. I couldn’t believe that the evening ended so quickly,  but it was 2.00am. I wouldn’t hesitate to book this Band again or recommend them to my friends. Thank you guys, Roberta”

“The Wize-Guy's were brilliant from start to finish. Such a rich sound, led by the incomparable Roger Bird. The band were nothing short of helpful, recording a breath-taking version of 'Your Song' that we will treasure for ever. The band were funny, full of energy, patient and very entertaining!”
