booked The Swing Smiths for their Regatta / Sporting Event on 9th December 2016

Dear Mike, The event on Friday was a great success and the members all really enjoyed it. Thank you so much for coming along and performing. I will certainly keep your contact details on record and be in touch should we have any other events that we could consider you for. Many thanks

“You were exceptional. A total pleasure to work with.”

booked The Swing Smiths for their event on 26th November 2016

Dear Mike, I know I thanked you on the night but just wanted to do so again in the cold light of day. You and your band were fantastic, not just brilliant at the music but also lovely, helpful and a total pleasure to work with. Thank you so much and please pass my thanks on to your team. My Mother literally had the party of her life and you were a big part of that.... you were exceptional.

“You guys were fantastic!”

booked The Swing Smiths for their Charity Event on 19th November 2016

Thank you so much for your performance on Saturday – you guys were fantastic! And I’ve had such great feedback from our guests too. It’s been a pleasure to work with you and if it’s ok I will keep you in mind for any future events we may have!

“I've heard only good feedback about them”

booked The Swing Smiths for their Charity Event on 18th November 2016

Everything went great thank you. As these things often go, we didn't run to time exactly as planned so I really appreciated the band's flexibility and going with the flow. They did a marvellous job, were the perfect addition to the event and I've heard only good feedback about them. So thank you very much! It's a bit of a guide at the moment but it looks like we raised a total of £45,000 from the event which is absolutely fantastic. We're thrilled of course. Thank you for supporting the event and helping us make sure as much of that as possible is going towards our patient care services. Kind regards

“They certainly add value to your event”

booked The Swing Smiths for their Charity Event on 12th November 2016

What a fantastic band! We booked Down for the Count for a Charity Gala Ball, and what a wonderful addition to the event they were. All our guests made for the dance floor and were thoroughly entertained and I can't recommend them highly enough. Delightful people and they certainly add value to your event!

“Everyone complimented the band all night”

booked The Swing Smiths for their Private Party on 17th September 2016

Thanks so much for a great evening. I thought the band were fabulous and we all had a really fun time dancing to their music. The lead singer's voice was very beautiful and everyone complimented the band all night.

“Our guests were extremely complimentary”

booked The Swing Smiths for their Wedding on 30th July 2016

Dear Mike, I’m sorry for not writing to you sooner to say thank you for everything. You and the band were superb - especially given the massive delay before you were able to perform, and the fact that we forgot to bring the interval playlist(s)! Our guests were extremely complimentary and said they really enjoyed the band and the dancing. So thank you - and thank you for making it all so easy for us too. I hope that we get to see you perform again in the not too distant future. Best wishes

“You were definitely one of the highlights of the day.”

booked The Swing Smiths for their Wedding on 29th July 2016

Dear Mike, we wanted to say a huge thank you for being part of our wedding. From the classical music during the ceremony to the full 9-piece jazz band in the evening, the music was just perfect. We have been fans of Down for the Count for a long time and have always said you would be amazing to have at a wedding so we are so pleased you could play for us on our special day. We have had so many comments from our guests about how fantastic the band was and you were definitely one of the highlights of the day. You never fail to get everyone dancing! We are also very grateful for the music you provided for our wedding video. The live recordings have made the videos so personal and bring back the best memories of the day. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you promote this option to other couples in the future. Hopefully you at another event soon. Best wishes

booked The Swing Smiths for their Private Party on 9th July 2016

Dear Mike, Thank you. We had a wonderful time! All our guests said how amazing the band were - which was true! The performance was excellent, as was the choice of songs. Once people had finished eating they were keen to get dancing. Your friends were skilled, charming and courteous. It was a real pleasure to have them with us as guests as well as musicians. And we didn't have any complaints about the sound level - in fact I heard that people walking down the street were joining in and dancing! Please pass on our thanks once again to all the performers - they were wonderful! We look forward to the next time..... Best wishes
