Nick L booked Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks for their Wedding in Lincolnshire on 7th October 2017
We hired Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks for our wedding and they were fantastic! They played a couple of low-key jazz sets during the drinks reception and then two rock & roll / ska sets in the evening. The rest of the time they provided music from an ipod, similarly low-key during dinner and music to dance to in the evening.
The band are really talented and Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks worked brilliantly with the crowd to get people in the party mood in a non-cheesy way. Everyone had a brilliant time and really enjoyed themselves. The whole room was up and dancing from the kids to my 70 year old parents. Even the lads who would normally just sit and drink got up and joined in. The band are great performers. They really made the day memorable and the evening reception more of an event than just having a DJ.
What really made this group great is their effort to make sure everything goes well. Mitch called a few weeks before the day to discuss the sort of things we wanted and what the crowd would be like and this showed on the day with a setlist that had some 1950s rock & roll for the oldies. On the day, they worked well to fit into the schedule of proceedings. We had initially booked them just for the evening but given our schedule it fitted better to have them the whole day and I'm really glad we did as it really added to the atmosphere of the day.
Generally, working with Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks was one of the easier parts of organising the wedding. Their email communication about what they required was plain and straightforward, prompt, and they worked well with the venue. They supplied all their electrical safety details.
My wife was initially reluctant to hire a band as she’d seen a bad example at someone else's wedding but this was not the case with Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks. They were professional and we were more than happy to let them mingle in with our guests in the room and buffet.
Overall, Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks was a great addition to the day, everyone had a brilliant time, and will be remembered for a long time to come. Hiring Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks was one of the best decisions we made when planning the wedding.
