Cocktail Hour client testimonials

We were so impressed- it made such a difference to our party our friends are still talking about it!! - planning was made so easy, useful suggestions and so patient. When the band arrived they were so amazingly smart - very professional- what impact!! That's all before they started playing- the music was amazing- everyone wanted to sit and listen all night- Strongly recommend this band.

Wedding jazz

Melissa Moore, Walton-On-Thames, private function 2016
I hired The Cocktail Hour Jazz Band for our School Fundraiser Summer Ball at St George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club in Weybridge, as I was looking for something very slick and professional to match the exclusive venue. They didn’t disappoint. They turned up on time and set up their equipment without any fuss, they were courteous and friendly. We had a strict itinerary of drinks, speeches, dinner and auctions and they stopped and stared at all the right times, liaising with me if they had any questions.
