“Great band and great atmosphere!”

booked Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks for their Wedding in Worcestershire on 1st June 2019

Dave and the band were amazing, they set up with minimal disruption to the day. When we got started Dave was so great with getting everybody on the dance floor and the set list was fantastic. Every member of the band was great and they made our wedding reception better than we could have hoped! Thank you!

“A very professional group with individually talented musicians.”

booked Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks for their Private Party in Nottinghamshire on 29th March 2019

Hoped for the best and they were just like that. They managed to get a relatively old group dancing more than they would have done for years. Just about every guest asked were I found the band. On top of that the hotel staff said it was the best band they have had for a long time. A very professional group with individually talented musicians. Peter Harrison

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.

“They totally delivered... Fantastic sound, and everyone was up and dancing til the end.”

booked Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks for their Wedding in Lancashire on 13th May 2017

We wanted a band for our self-organised wedding that would sound good, and get people up and dancing. We booked Blue Note Mitch through Alive Network, having listened to a number of different options. They totally delivered - an hour of rock and roll, and a second hour of Ska; fantastic sound, and everyone was up and dancing til the end. They were also really friendly and helpful beforehand and on the night. Highly recommended

“The performance was excellent”

booked Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks for their event at Museum of Science & Industry on 24th June 2016

The band were professional, played the music we requested, chose songs that fitted perfectly the audience we had and the performance was excellent. Highly recommended

“They performed exactly what we wanted, would highly recommend them to anyone else.”

booked Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks for their Wedding at The Thatch Barn in Cambridgeshire on 4th June 2016

They performed exactly what we wanted, the Jazz sets whilst we were eating set the perfect background music and the main dance sets got everybody up and dancing until the end. There have been several people asking where we found them and commenting how good they were. We would and may hopefully book them again and would highly recommend them to anyone else.

“A wonderful, memorable event.”

They were amazing! The standard of musicianship was excellent and as there were several musicians at our party it mattered to me that the standard was high. I added the sax player to the line up and that really lifted the sound. Dave was so professional in his approach and nothing was too much trouble; he organised the sets to include songs of John’s era and the highlight was letting him “jam” with the band much to everyone’s delight. We danced the night away to their high energy music with lovely lighting and sound system that suited our venue. I was aware that they must play much larger events but were able to adapt to our smaller group. Dave worked on some moves with the children with they loved and his humour, singing and fronting of the band held the whole evening together. He was able to pace our energy so we were reluctant to stop! I’m glad we did though as some of our older party-goers had trouble walking the next day! A wonderful, memorable event. Lynne Baines

“We just wanted to say a big thank you for last Saturday night you were all fantastic.”

We just wanted to say a big thank you for last Saturday night you were all fantastic, friendly and very professional. We really appreciate how you got everyone on the dance floor having a great time. Brilliant!

“Thanks for making the party go with a swing.”

booked Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks for their event on 12th September 2015

Just a note to say a huge thanks for the excellent music on Saturday night. We all had a great time and you certainly hit the spot. You are a remarkably versatile band – just what we wanted. Megan and Matt both wanted to pass on their thanks for making their party go with a swing and for making their “flight to the moon” so memorable! We’d be very happy to pass on a recommendation to anyone who’s thinking of booking you for their special day. 

“I can't rate these guys enough.”

booked Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks for their event on 30th August 2015

Blue Note Mitch and the Red Hot Jacks are definitely one of the best things I spent money on at my wedding! From Sean beautifully playing acoustic guitar as my entrance and exit music music in the church, to a perfect chilled jazz set whilst guests were enjoyed the wedding breakfast, to a rockin' evening set that got every single person up dancing! I can't rate these guys enough, everyone commented on how good the band were. Can't wait for the next big party to hire the band again!
