– Guillermo Mesa Entertainment manager and DJ at Southampton’s biggest Latin night club,

“We hired the band for a wedding celebration in our garden. Jose made the booking process very easy and he was very careful to make sure we had the right kind of mix of instruments and singer to suit us. He sent a long and varied list of song choices. Requests were also encouraged. On the day the band were professional in every way from setting up to performing a whole beautiful range of songs. There was something to suit everyone.This band had just the right mix for us of jazzy, cool music while our guests wanted to eat and talk, but could turn up the volume and liven up the beat at just the right time for some dancing. Plus the band were such lovely guys – friendly and warm and had a great rapport with our guests. We have had great feedback from our guests about how great the band were. I can thoroughly recommend booking this band. ”
