TESTIMONIALS

Here’s what Jazz and Swing Band – Jivin’ Miss Daisy’s clients said:

“Jivin’ Miss Daisy were absolutely fantastic – the mix of songs and the playlist they put together for us was perfect including having them playing our first dance … They did 3 x 40 minute sets and every time they came back, the dance floor continued dancing… they are professional, but with fantastic charm and personality, performance skills and great talent. They just got everyone going – old and young and everyone in between. I photograph weddings professionally and had a huge number of bands to choose from, but JMD really rocked the party and made the wedding darned fabulous”
