Reviews:

Close Menu
"We cannot speak more highly of Swing Collective. Along with our guests we were bowled over by them and gained as much pleasure watching and listening to them play as we did dancing to them. From the outset their communication was excellent. They replied promptly and professionally to all questions. They accommodated changes to their set with pleasure and were very creative with one or two ideas and requests we had. From the moment we 'met' them online to them arriving in plenty of time to set up for our wedding, Swing Collective were excellent. We have already recommended them to friends. Entertainment Nation are a good company to do business with. They were prompt with their replies, very professional and thorough with their paperwork. Their detailed approach to the booking took all the worry away from choosing what was for us until then an unknown company and an unknown band. We would use Entertainment Nation again. Many thanks."
Wedding Band Review
"I would like to thank you so much for playing at our wedding! The band were absolutely amazing. Everyone is talking about how great you were. I can't believe how much energy you all put in - even at nearly midnight after two sets with barely a break as far as I recall! You had some of my grumpiest guests up and dancing - and the whole wedding party was humming New York, New York at brunch on Sunday. Not very well it must be mentioned! Please, please pass my thanks to all the band members/ forward the email. I would highly recommend you to anyone planning an event, both for your professional and friendly service, and for your outstanding performance."
Wedding Swing Band Review
"I hope that you are well and got back to London ok after our wedding on the 4th. I just wanted to say thank you ever so much to you and all of the band for giving such a great show at our reception. I really wanted to have a great party - with everyone up and dancing and you all made that happen. Thank you also for learning "Come on Eileen" for us, dancing to that is one of my favourite memories of the day."
Wedding Jazz Band Review
"We were absolutely delighted with the band. They were professional, fun and sounded fantastic. They really added a level of sophistication to the event and couldn't have been better. We send out a feedback survey to our staff after the event and this year we got the highest score ever with 99.6% of staff saying that overall the event was worth attending. Many staff said that this was the best event that they had ever been to. Achieving this result without a band of this quality would have been impossible, so thank you."
Corporate Jazz Event Band Review
"You were stunning both with the music and their approach. Everyone loved your performance and the dance floor remained packed. Our Daughter was delighted (very important!). Thank you"
Wedding Swing Band Review
"We want to thank you and everyone in your awesome band for making our evening truly magical! Our guests were very impressed by your performances. So did we! Great timing for our first dance. You totally rocked (and jazzed)!"
Wedding Band Review
"Just a short email to say a huge thank you to you and your band for the fabulous performance you gave last Saturday for our daughter's wedding. Everyone thought you were all terrific, you sounded superb and certainly got everyone on their feet. I for one didn't want it to end, dancing the whole night. All our guests made comment on how good you all were. We had a wonderful time and hope that you enjoyed yourselves to. You were all fantastic."
Wedding Swing Band Review
"We just wanted to say how AMAZING you all were on Saturday evening. You were all fantastic and exactly what we wanted. A lot of guests said you were the one of the best swing bands they have heard. We have also passed your details on to quite a few couples who have weddings coming up."
Wedding Big Band Review
"Mike and The Swing Collective were relentlessly professional before, during and at the end of the day. He played the organ during the ceremony, including pieces he hadn't seen before as well as providing an afternoon jazz trio and a 7-piece evening swing band. Throughout the day he was always doing what he said he'd be doing and we never had to chase for anything. We were running a bit late, but he was happy to be flexible and accommodate us... We've had loads of comments from our guests saying how much fun they were and how good they sounded. We've already recommended them to a couple of our friends"
Wedding Entertainment Review
"A massive thank you to you and all at The Swing Collective for a fantastic performance at our wedding. I can't wait to see all the photos from our photographer and share them with you. I had so, so many compliments on the night about how fantastic the band were and we loved every minute of the dancing and the jazz for the reception drinks. Also, thank you Mike for all your help and guidance in the lead up to the big day - it was so refreshing to have your honest input into what we actually needed for the day (and I'm glad we didn't go with the moving lights on the dancefloor!!!)."
Wedding Band Review
"I write on behalf of myself and all the guests who attended our dinner on Friday at the Double Trees Hotel. I have received nothing but praise for you and your band and I wish to thank you all for helping make our evening the great success it turned out to be. A lot of my guests, besides myself are musicians of one sort or another and have all commented on the fabulous sound and quality of playing you all produced. What was particularly noticed was the young age of the players, playing and enjoying the music of another era. The type of music you played was perfect for my guests and I thank you for the very professional approach you made to getting that right. I know from bitter experience how easily it is to get it wrong. I would be pleased if you would pass on my sincere thanks and those of my Provincial Grand Master and all the guests to your band members for giving us a truly memorable evening."
