"Dear John, Rob and I wanted to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the band for the amazing job you did for us at our wedding in September. The music you played created the perfect atmosphere for us and our guests as we enjoyed the sunshine. We received so many compliments from our guests and it is a part of the day that we will always remember very fondly. I will certainly be in touch if we ever need you again! Thank you once again for helping to make our wedding day so special."
Rebecca and Rob Boston, September 2012

"Dear John and the band, Thank you so much for playing at our wedding reception at Hotel Van Dyk on 11th April. The music was perfect and it really added an extra special touch to our day. Thank you for your helpfulness and professionalism both before and on the day. With best wishes"
Samantha and Joseph Graham, April 2012

"Good Morning John, Just wanted to drop you a quick email before the honeymoon to say how absolutely wonderful the band was at our wedding. It set the scene perfectly and together with the weather, well what can I say! All of our guests commented on how wonderful and talented you all were. A huge thank you from the bottom of our hearts - you really did contribute to making our day perfect."
Mr and Mrs Round, July 2012

"Hi John, Although you did not get much obvious acknowledgement of your sessions on Sunday from your audience, I thought you would like to know almost everyone mentioned you in their thank-you notes including some rave reviews. So, thanks again, it was a really good day."
Mr D Thompson, Cropwell Butler, Aug 2012

"We recently booked Nottingham Jazz for our End of Year Summer Ball and we were most impressed with the experience. Booking and arranging the performance was an easy process as we were guided through which ensemble would best suit our event. On the day of the event the duet arrived on time and everyone enjoyed the music - we were complimented on it several times as the night took its course. Overall it was an absolute pleasure working with Nottingham Jazz and we would not hesitate to book them again."
Priyanka Patel (Co-President Sheffield Economics Society 2011-12)

"Hi John, Thank you for playing for us on Saturday, you were great and really added to the day and helped to make it special.  I think that without exception every one who heard you made a point of telling me how much they enjoyed listening to you play."
S Needham, Church Warsop, Aug 2012

"Nottingham Jazz were friendly, professional, and a big hit with our guests! We booked them for both our winter and summer formals as they were so easy to work with and put on such a good show, creating the perfect atmosphere. They catered to the crowd and put on an amazing performance that had everyone talking. Thank you all!"
Isabel D'Mello, Raleigh Park JCR, 2012

"Dear John, Thank you so much for playing your wonderful music at our party yesterday, your contribution really made it a very special occasion for us. Our guests really enjoyed the music and I think you may have gained several more fans, certainly people are talking of coming to see and hear you play. With very best wishes."
Maggie and Peter Gordon, 2012

"Hi John and all the guys...Well what can I say, thank you so much to the four of you for playing at my daughter's 21st Champagne lunch at the Eden Bar in Grantham. It really gave it a wonderful atmosphere and everyone has been saying how marvellous the afternoon had been and how brilliant you all were. You made the day so thank you very much and I would not hesitate to use you again and recommend you for any event. Well done and thank you."
Tess Sheehy, 2011

"Dear John, We were truly delighted when Nottingham Jazz agreed to play at our wedding. We had searched on the internet for a jazz band which offered classical jazz for a reasonable budget and were becoming disheartened until we came across your site. From the moment we contacted you, you worked with us to help achieve our vision with regards to the music. You were so accommodating when we requested if you could play 'At Last' by Etta James, which you delivered beautifully as Sandra walked up the aisle.

Being an outdoor summer wedding, our vision was to have the atmospheric sounds of summer jazz, as our guests mingled in the beautiful gardens and enjoyed drinks & canapés after the ceremony. You certainly made this become a reality, adding a certain je ne sais quoi to our wedding day. For us it was the perfect wedding... the perfect day!! Nottingham Jazz added that extra special touch to the occassion and we cannot recommend you and your band highly enough. Best wishes from a very happy couple."
Simon & Sandra Freeman, 2011

"Nottingham Jazz have played at our last three 'Tiger Balls', the biggest social event in our rowing calender. Not only were they easy and more than straightforward to work with, their music was of an incredibly high quality and they created a fantastic atmosphere, adding class and elegance to the evening. Every year attendees of the ball comment on how much they enjoyed the band and needless to say we would happily recommend them to others. We would love to see you at our next event."
Jessica Fok, President, Nottingham University Boat Club 2011/12

"Hi John, May I firstly say thank you so much for your fantastic performance on Saturday. I had endless numbers of people telling me how brilliant you were and indeed you were fantastic...Once again, thank you. You certainly made the night unforgettable and very special."
Lucy Gough-Jones, Halsbury Travel, Nottingham, 2011

"We hired the Nottingham Jazz Quartet for a pre conference function at East Midlands Conference Centre. Every aspect of dealing with the band in the run-up was straight-forward. When they played they were great: super ambience, cool vibes and very tight. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these guys, they have it."
Chris Holcroft, Director and CEO, Association for Geographic Information

"Dear Nottingham Jazz,
I have to thank you for the wonderful set you played for us at our Summer Party at the Nottingham Castle.

The band really fit the mood brilliantly, starting the evening with Jazz and Pimms overlooking the City was romantic and delightful. Members of our party also commented on how much they enjoyed your music.

The event really wouldn't have been the same without you, thanks again, and I look forward to seeing you in the future."
The Graduate Centre, University of Nottingham, 2011

"To John and the gang ... you have played your wonderful music for us at our annual garden party for the last two years.  Your style of jazz fits the ambience of our events perfectly - loud enough to be heard whilst guests mingle and eat, but not too loud that the guests cannot talk to each other.  I think I will encourage my bosses to have an event where we could have an after dinner dance to your beautiful sounds next time!"
Rachel Honman, Ellis-Fermor & Negus Solicitors, 2011

"Thanks so much for coming to play for us yesterday John. Your band created a fantastic atmosphere in our marquee and I have received many positive comments from the students."
Jamie van Oppen, Lincoln Hall JCR President 2010/11

"Thank you very much for your fantastic contribution to making the 60th Anniversary Gala such a great event. We raised approximately £15,000 towards our Education in the Community programme and your involvement played a part in making it such a successful evening."

Stephanie Sirr, Chief Executive, Nottingham Playhouse

"Nottingham Jazz have played at the past four AU and IMS Balls I have arranged and have always provided a very impressive service. As well as adding a genuine touch of class to the Balls, they are a pleasure to work with and always a massive hit with everyone"
Paul Lloyd, Athletic Union Officer 2008/09

"Thanks again for Friday night, it made such a difference to the ambience of the preview evening and I had so many favourable comments from the exhibitors and public. I look forward to your next gigs with us next year."
Neil Walker, Visual Arts Officer, Lakeside Arts Centre

"Following previous impeccable performances, including our 007 themed Winter Formal, I had no hesitation in booking Nottingham Jazz for the Law Society Spring Ball. It was a privilege to once again hear the high quality of music performed by such friendly guys who hold a clear passion for performing."
Clare Freshwater, President, Nottingham University Law Society

"Dear John and Co., I just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at the PGSA Summer Ball on Friday night, you guys were awesome and really helped to create a great ambiance.  Thanks also for staying a while longer, I hope this did not cause you to be too delayed for your next gig at Colwick Hall. Thanks again!"
Jennie Wills, Nottingham University Postgraduate Students' Association 2008/09
