Testimonials

Hi Dan, Thank you for helping make our wedding such an incredibly memorable and awesome day.  Mike and I had a blast and the music was absolutely perfect.  Mike thoroughly enjoyed having a jam with you guys.  There is nothing that I would have changed.  The music selection with your sax player afterwards was exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much, it was an unforgettable day.

We just want to say thank you so much for the amazing band that played at our wedding in Franschhoek on 4 March 2017. The jazz trio was amazing, they really made the canape and cocktail hour so much more enjoyable for the guests. So many guests commented on how great they were after the wedding, and we loved the songs! We will definitely recommend you guys to everyone tying the knot in Cape Town.
