"I hired ‘Next Big Swing’ for my mums 50th Birthday Party, people are still talking about the party purely because the music was so good. Hiring them was the best decision we made when organising the party as it managed to get everyone on their feet for the whole night. The band were superb, they were always on time with their sets and played some fantastic music which made the night."

"Thank you! The guys were brilliant - everyone was so impressed with them. My parents - both in their early 70's were dancing away like teenagers. It was a lovely gig and we got so much positive feedback from our guests - words like amazing and fantastic were coming thick and fast. The guys really made an impression!"
