Greg D booked Soul To Swing for their event on 19th May 2012
I wanted to drop you a line to say that Soul To Swing provided an absolutely fantastic evening of music for our wedding on Saturday.
Quite apart from the quality of the band's performance, it has been a pleasure to work with Stirling. He was (a) simply a very nice guy on the phone and in person (b) obviously focused on what we wanted from his band and keen to get our input (c) able to call on a varied and extensive repertoire.
In addition, he organised for an original arrangement of our first dance song to be written at what you are aware was very short notice indeed (it was brilliant), and came up with the idea of me joining the band to play some guitar on one song - something I wouldn't have thought of asking, but which turned out to be one of the highlights (for me anyway!) of a wonderful day. He wanted to, and did, make things easy for us, and I'm sure you don't need me to tell you how important a mindset that is when you're working with a couple who are about to get married.
Obviously, through no fault of their own, the process leading up to Soul To Swing being 'our band' was difficult - I just wanted to let Alive Network know that the experience of dealing with the band from the first phonecall until the last number of the night couldn't have been easier.
