    "We cannot recommend Swing Collective enough - they set the tone for a fantastically fun wedding party and got all of our guests up and dancing for the whole night. They are brilliant at blending high energy party starters with more mellow jazz for a cocktail reception. The whole team were simply a joy to work with from start to finish and made all of the organisation and logistics so simple and easy. We are really grateful to Swing Collective for their creativity, professionalism, flexibility, and hard work. Thank you for making our wedding party one to remember!"
    Hannah W - Wedding - Oxford
    "Just wanted to say a huge, huge thank you to you and your incredible band that made our day come to life. We loved all the music - as you know, it was some guests' favourite part of the wedding!! I say - fair enough! Swing Collective were definitely a highlight for us as well and the sounds of the string quartet playing the first strains of the Beatitudes and that epic finale and encore from the full band will stay with me forever."
    Alex L - Wedding - London
    "Thank you so much for your amazing music and energy when you performed at our wedding in Norfolk in December. We loved the music and everyone commented on how great you all were. As you could probably tell, our friends and family love a good party and we loved that the dance floor was packed all night long! All our love."
    Jen and Ali - Wedding - Norfolk
    "The band were great at our wedding - very talented musicians, fun outfits and know how to get the party going. Not only is the music wonderful but the customer service was the best of any of our wedding suppliers. He was excellent at responding to our emails quickly, making suggestions and answering any questions. He even visited the venue beforehand to check the sound system and how it worked (liaising with the venue himself). All round top marks from us."
    Vanessa and Joe - Wedding - Berkshire
    "Thank you so much for performing at our wedding. You were absolutely incredible - amazing musicianship, perfect repertoire and a very slick and professional set up. We were so overjoyed to have found you all and honestly couldn't have asked for more from our wedding band. We had fantastic feedback from all of our guests and everyone had such a good time dancing in the evening. Thank you so much for being so accommodating with our first dance, and for letting me join you for a number too. We're so grateful!'
    Olivia and Will - Wedding - Suffolk
    "Swing Collective were a sensational part of our wedding and one of the most memorable parts of our day. I lost count of how many guests raved about their performances and many of our wedding guests are in the entertainment industry. The band is slick, professional and every member is insanely talented. The transitions from song to song were seamless and the dance floor was packed from our first dance till the 2nd encore. I danced for 3 hours straight and had the best time. I cannot rate them highly enough."
    Alicia and Colin - Wedding - Worcestershire
    "Swing Collective offered a truly tailored experience that enchanted us - they provided music from our service, through cocktails to the end of our party. They even learnt a French song for our first dance! One of our main comments from our guests was how much of a fun atmosphere they added to each part of our day, and I would recommend them to any couple because of their great versatility."
    Rebecca and Samuel - Wedding - London
    "Swing Collective were utterly superb, from first recommendation to delivery on the night. They have a slick presence, flawless sound and impeccable communication. They made our night truly magical and we cannot recommend them highly enough."
    Hannah and George - Wedding - London
    "They were smart, savvy and had the room rocking from the first note played. They listened when we discussed genres and delivered in spades. We were running late and they adapted to our timetable, never missing a beat. They gave us more than we could have expected and our guests from 21 to 86 were all dancing. My wife and I cannot praise them highly enough. The mixture of Standards, Pop, Motown, Swing and Rock and Roll was fabulous. At the end our guests were shouting for more!!"
    Geri and Gary - Wedding - London
    "Swing Collective were absolutely fantastic. During the set up on the day they were punctual and professional, and they were totally accommodating to our wacky requests (processional music down a field). The music was exceptional - they're experts at reading the 'mood' of the room and got everyone up on their feet dancing. So many of the guests came up to us afterwards to tell us how good they were. I couldn't recommend the band more highly."
    Liz and Sam - Wedding - Dorset
    "You guys were amazing thanks, so energetic and talented and everyone I spoke to afterwards said how great you all were. Thanks so much again to you and your band and I hope you enjoyed it, as much as we did."
    Debbie S - Corporate - London
    "I know I thanked you on the night but just wanted to do so again in the cold light of day. You and your band were fantastic, not just brilliant at the music but also lovely, helpful and a total pleasure to work with. Thank you so much and please pass my thanks on to your team. My Mother literally had the party of her life and you were a big part of that.... you were exceptional."
    Deborah Meaden (Dragons Den) - Party - Somerset
    "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 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."
    Dinner Dance Band 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
    "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
    "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
    "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 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
    "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
    "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."
