Here’s what Hot Shoes – Vintage Swing Band’s clients said:
The band were really helpful when we contacted them before the wedding. On the day they set up with no fuss, and let us borrow their mics for our speeches. Their 3 sets were all really good-everyone was dancing from the beginning until the end, and everyone has been commenting on what a great band they are. They were so full of energy, and even ended up wearing props from our photo booth which added to the fun- the drummer looked great in a fez!
Mr and Mrs Lindon
Thank you so so so much for performing at our wedding! Everything was smooth on the day and I didn’t have to worry about anything which was reassuring. We were so impressed by everything!
Mr and Mrs Navarro
We couldn’t have been more delighted with Hot Shoes performance, the dance floor was packed from the moment they started and stayed that way for the whole set!
They were amazingly relaxed and flexible – exactly what you need on your wedding day when nothing seems to run quite to plan!
The whole experience was great, from the ease of booking to your response to my questions, thank you!
Punctual and professional, I will definitely book them again…
For my 40th birthday last November, I wanted to re-create some swing style magic for myself and my friends. And with the Hot Shoes that’s exactly what I got. The set list was awesome, and you can tell the band love what they do as the sound they produced was wonderful. I cant recommend them highly enough. Two long sets just wasn’t enough! Thanks guys, we had an incredible evening.
The Hot Shoes provided an excellent performance at our Annual Dinner in November 2015. We have a mixed group of professionals attending but the Band appealed to all there. The preparation in advance was very smooth from our perspective and having used Pete’s service before, I could depend on their reliability on the night.
Can I say a massive thank you to you and the rest of the band for all your efforts on Saturday night. The music was superb and many of our guests have commented on the quality and originality of the music. It suited everyone of all ages and everyone was up dancing which was exactly what we were hoping for. The whole experience was great, from the ease of booking to your response to my questions, thank you. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you and will certainly look to book you for any future family celebrations.
The Hot Shoes played at our wedding celebration and were absolutely fantastic. We found the hiring process with Pete very straight forward, with no hiccups at all. The two sets they played were great with ‘I get a kick out of you’ and ‘Get Lucky’ played at our request. The band were lovely and had everyone up and dancing; they definitely made our celebration a night to remember!
Hot Shoes played at our wedding reception, we loved the performance and style. The guys really made the evening special and played our first dance music, which they learnt especially for us. All of our guests commented on how good the music was and how it created the perfect relaxed and fun atmosphere to our wedding reception. Thanks so much it was a perfect end to our wedding day.
