What a wonderful send off Silk Street jazz band did for my Dad’s funeral. First class service and the music was out of this world. Everyone has sent messages to me saying how brilliant they were. Thanks so much

I would just like to thank Silk Street Jazz for making our friends funeral extra special. They were brilliant from first contact to playing the final tune. Everybody was very impressed. So once again MASSIVE THANKS .👍
27th June 2022Nick James
Need to say how much everyone enjoyed the band. It set a completely different tone on the day and absolutely fitted Helen. I lost count of the melodies you played, but it was always the right music for the right moment. I have a sneaking suspicion several of the mourners are right now rethinking their own funeral plans. There were tears, but there were also a lot of smiles and laughter too. Just what she would have wanted. The depth and richness of the sound you get with a 10 piece made it absolutely the right way to go.

I was very impressed with the band yesterday and could have happily listened to them all day... they were superb and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them in the future, to a family who are looking for something different and very special as they say ‘Goodbye’ to their Loved One.

I can not recommend highly enough. My family and I hired a 7 piece for my late fathers funeral. From start to finish they were amazing! Made one of our saddest days feel like a real celebration. Seriously talented and so accommodating.

27th November 2021Jaki Fox
Cannot thank Jonathan and the guys enough for the amazing job they did. From first contact to the performance they were so helpful and considerate. They made saying goodbye to dad such a positive experience. It was dad's wish and I'm so very happy silk street jazz were able to play exactly what we wanted. Thanks again for a positive experience that we will never forget. Anyone thinking of booking these guys.... I would not hesitate, call them!
14th August 2019Sue Parry
These guys are absolutely brilliant. From start to finish they made the process easy and painless. My dad always wanted a Dixieland jazz band for his funeral and Silk Street went beyond our expectations. They really set the tone for the day and everyone was all smiles and laughter. Exactly what dad (and us) wanted! We can’t thank you enough!Book them. You won’t be disappointed.
14th August 2019
I could not recommend this band enough. we were so lucky to have them as our afternoon entertainment. So many guests have remarked on how brilliant you were, so a big thank you!Everything about them was perfect. They made our entrance to the reception at my family home stunning and had a great playlist for the rest of the afternoon, setting the perfect atmosphere. Professional, fun and polite, I would most definitely recommend to any event. Thank you!
19th July 2019Carol Wainwright
A fantastic evening for my son's 18th with the two Daves on trumpet and banjo.They were so professional and adaptable to our requirements.Great variety of music and really nice guys. Many thanks !

The Dixie Rhythms performed at our wedding reception. They are truly talented musicians with a wide repertoire and their performance was very entertaining. They created a wonderful atmosphere as guests arrived, which helped make the occasion really special. They were very helpful and accommodating and the practicalities of set up/pack down were handled very smooth;y and with the minimum of fuss. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Dixie Rhythms to enhance any occasion. Excellent.
20th July 2018
- Katy Wilkinson
The band were perfect for our sunny wedding, jazz and fizz was a winning combination and our guests loved the atmosphere! Thanks again to Jonathan and team for bringing our vision to life, talented musicians and a lovely bunch.
30th May 2018Pete T
They played at my 60th birthday on 28th January. It set the whole afternoon up. Very professional prompt and great musicians. Excellent entertainment
4th May 2018Paul Canfield
This was a fitting tribute to a family of jazz lovers. The band's performance enhanced the procession of the cortege at the Crematorium. It set the atmosphere for those already there and then again were playing in the background, after the service, whilst people gathered to look at the flowers. Then they played later at the wake. This meant that everyone in attendance on this day were able to enjoy some live jazz. They fulfilled and surpassed our expectations.

- Jayne Lillywhite
Silk Street Jazz played at my father's funeral in Jan 2018. The five-piece band sounded wonderful and they made a very sad occasion seem more bearable. All the mourners thought it was a fitting 'send-off'; I heard several say they wanted the same when it was their time! Organising it all couldn't have been easier - Jonathan was helpful and efficient, but sensitive at the same time. I can't thank them all enough.
10th January 2018Georgia Scott
We hired Silk Street Jazz for a special event and couldn't be happier with the service the team provided. From initial chats with Jonathan to the performances on the day and everything in between, we were really pleased with everything and would definitely recommend them for your next event. Our event was a little different as well - we required performances at a train station, on a train and at the final event venue. The band were amazing throughout and logistics were never an issue. They were professional, friendly, punctual and organised, meaning we didn't have to worry about a thing! The music was absolutely amazing and gave a great vibe to the event we were holding.
20th November 2017Georgie L
Silk Street Jazz were just the perfect day band for our wedding. Jonathan went above and beyond to help us in the run up to the wedding and everyone commented on how super fun the band were. They met our guests 500m away from our wedding reception and walked them up the road whilst playing their amazing music - cue dancing guests and the whole street coming out to join in! It was such a wonderful moment that people still comment on. They were the perfect accompaniment to our champagne reception - lively, jolly, fun but not overbearing. I wouldn't hesitate to rebook them for any future events. Thank you SO much Silk Street Jazz!
14th August 2017
Excellent Music, Thank You
Gordon Ramsay, Waldorf Hotel, London
Thank you for your efforts last night in making it such a special evening. It was a great turn out and we had some really fantastic feedback from our customers and colleagues. From Jamie Taylor, Head of Business, myself and all of the staff at Mercedes-Benz of Harrogate we would like to say a massive thank you for your attending last night and making it an evening to remember
Gemma Callaghan (Mercedes-Benz) Harrogate
I wanted to share some pictures from our wedding of the wonderful band you provided. We had such a great day and the band were just perfect! Everyone loved them and they were so amazing. Please pass our very best onto them and thank them for being in such good spirits and being the perfect entertainment for our reception – they set the tone for the day brilliantly and everyone LOVED walking up the road with them!
Georgie Lunan, Guildford
Dear Jonathan. I just wanted to say a big thank-you to Silk Street and to our five musicians yesterday. Great sound and really engaging and colourful. Worked really well to set the scene and liven up the early part of Pete’s 60th party. Kind regards and many thanks
Rose Dale (London)
Your band yesterday was terrific. Not only did they play exactly the music we wanted but they were such lovely people. Please give them thanks from of all of us who organised the street party for the crucial part they played in making it a resounding success
Geoff Lindey (London)
Hi Jonathan. I just wanted to tell you how pleased we all were with the band at Dad’s funeral yesterday. Everyone thought it a wonderful tribute to him, and many commented on how much Dad would have liked it. It was a bitterly cold day, so please do thank the musicians for doing so well.I must confess that I am not really a jazz fan, but I so enjoyed listening to the gents play. I don’t think ‘enjoy’ is the right word given the solemn occasion, but I’m sure you know what I mean. The music made the ceremony more emotional and moving – in a good way – and very memorable. And although it was an occasion full of sadness, the band seemed to make it easier to bear – for me at least. So many, many thanks. Best wishes
Jayne Lillywhite (Enfield)
The Silk Street Santas were absolutely wonderful and greeted with great pleasure. Great performers and I thoroughly enjoyed myself hosting them for the day. I hope they had a good time too
Saima Salomaa (Manchester)
The Trio was fantastic and set the perfect tone for the day. They were very accommodating and adaptable and just generally very pleasant guys!
Hi Jonathan. It was lovely to meet you too – thank you so much for your amazing performances throughout the day and for your professionalism and help throughout the whole booking process. I’ve left you a review on Google (5 starts of course!) I hope it’s ok. Thanks for sharing the social content from yesterday, the Northern social team tagged you in their Instagram stories. I hope we get to work together again soon, we will definitely be in touch again when the opportunity comes up to book a band for an event. Best wishes
Georgia Scott (Manchester)
Please send my thank you’s to the members of the band that came to perform on Sunday for the Tennis Wheelchair Masters tournament. They were a delight to work with and really lifted the atmosphere on finals day, we had lots of great feedback from everyone about them. I will definitely keep the band in mind for any future events I am involved in as they were brilliant! If anything comes up I will definitely let you know!
Thaddea Lock, London
Hi Jonathan, I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the band for Saturday night. The band played brilliantly and they created such a lovely atmosphere for the drinks reception. Please could you pass on a massive thank you to everyone? I also have a card for them which I meant to hand over on Saturday but didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to them. Shall I send this to you to pass on? The wedding went really well and our clients couldn’t have been happier. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and we look forward to doing so again soon
Camilla Davidson-Houston (London)
I just wanted to thank you for all your help with the music for our funeral. Please say thank you to the other band members too. I will be sure to mention you to any of my customers that are planning 1920s / Gatsby themed events. Once again, thank you so much. Your music really made the day and we had people saying that they had never enjoyed a funeral so much! It was a wonderful send off for my lovely father in law
Dawn & Tim Frost (Stratford Upon Avon)
Just want to say how impressed we were with the quartet that played at my dad’s funeral yesterday. The music sounded so good and really lifted the day. Everyone was so impressed and it was the talk of the day. Thank you once again for helping to make a difficult day a little easier
Carol Wenden (London)
The boys were absolutely great. Right Grand!! I’ll give you a “write up” in the next few days. Would it be possible to have a list of the numbers they played for memories sake or as many as they can remember? Also, are there any recordings I can buy of the band. Thanks again. What a super day and my father had the time of his life. The highlight was the band. All our kind regards
Paul & Charlotte Arnold, London
Thanks once again. Everyone was moved by your performance (quite stunned, really) and made for a fantastic send-off for my dad. He would have been thrilled
Andrew Tunstall, Rochdale
Great band who were professional and punctual. Really added to the atmosphere of our arrival drinks. Thanks!
John Percival, Staffordshire
The family were absolutely delighted with the band and the whole funeral. Thank you so much. We hope to use your services again soon and of course I will recommend you to families
Sarah K, London
Thanks again for the amazing set yesterday, it was completely perfect and our guests LOVED IT!
Katy & Chris, Kent
We just wanted to get in touch as early as we could to say THANK YOU so much for adding that amazing New Orleans vibe to our wedding. Getting out of the car to the sound of you guys was truly phenomenal and you delivered the exact atmosphere we wanted. It was fun, upbeat and different – we’ve had so many comments about you guys so thank you so much for everything. Absolute perfection. As you could see, I couldn’t stop dancing to it! So special
Laura Stubbs, Cheshire
Many thanks for the band Martin & Andy were excellent – very much added to the day
Tony & Emma, Whilton
Thanks so much for the music the other night. The guys were really lovely too and my dad had a great time speaking with them between a few numbers. It topped off an amazing day and we managed to keep their walk-in as a surprise which went amazingly. My dad absolutely loved it. It was such a great evening, and I just wanted to say thanks again!
Francis Booth (London)
We’d just like to email you to thank you for your assistance and professionalism in getting a jazz band to us for our big day last week. The band were great and a number of people commented on how good they sounded. One even asked for a CD! Thank you again
Holly & Lee, Hampshire
Gentlemen, Thank you for adding so much to the success of Saturday’s party. You were brilliant – considerate, helpful and a delight to work with and everyone loved your music. Many thanks from all of us

Jill Fearns, Altrincham
The performance met our expectations and provided a great atmosphere for our pre-dinner drinks reception
Richard Hill, Bristol
Thank you Jonathan and the band so much for making a very sad day go with a ‘swing’. It was exactly what my Mum wanted, a jazz band playing at her funeral and at the reception afterwards. You were all very professional lovely people and I would recommend you every time, for all occasions, not just funerals. Once again thank you
Irene Gould, Liverpool
For my 40th, I had a 1920s themed party in a beautiful 1920s ballroom in Letchworth Garden City. I can honestly say that the absolute HIGHLIGHT of the party was the 5 piece Silk Street Jazz band. I felt like I had stepped back in time. They were absolutely wonderful – truly superb – and contributed to one of the very best nights of my life. They were extremely professional, flexible and accommodating (even happy to accompany a last minute request from my husband to sing with them!) and really looked dapper in their gorgeous red waistcoats. They did an outstanding job – what a talented group of gents! Thank you Silk Street Jazz
Elizabeth Carr, Letchworth
Hello Jonathan. Just a quick note to say thank you to you and the musicians who played at my Dad’s funeral on Friday. It was exactly what we wanted and created the perfect mood for people to share their memories and say goodbye with a celebration of a life. Thank you again
Andy Lines, Chesterfield
Excellent pre-event organisation and advice. The band were superb. Loads of people came up to me after to say how good the band was and could I give them the contact details. Five Stars!
Your music was totally brilliant – thank you a million!
Great fun and lovely to deal with. The music was gorgeous with a lovely mix of traditional and up-beat. Loved by all. Many Thanks
Silk Street Jazz were making a return visit to the annual Epping Christmas Market. They are an excellent group and very professional. They are very approachable and played a good selection of items. It was just what we wanted and they greatly added to the success of the market. Thank you!
Gill Ratcliff, Epping
Thank you so much for your efforts today on behalf of my dad. Your trio were superb, your whole booking experience was swift & professional & the music was just right
Sue Moffat, Maidstone
I’ve been away but I should have emailed you before to say how terrific the Silk Street Jazz were for the Downton Abbey themed ball at the Great Hall Winchester. The were the consummate professionals and made a huge difference to the event.Very best wishes and thanks
Ronni Davis, Winchester
Hi Jonathan, just wanted to take the time to thank you and the band for the performance at Mark’s going away do this week. You were superb and made what could have been an extremely sad day (which it undoubtedly was) into a joyous celebration of a life well lived. We will never be able to thank you enough, please pass this message on to the guys who were there on the day. Excellent work chaps – very well done indeed
Paul & Emma
Dear Jonathan, We’re just back from the honeymoon and I wanted to thank you all so much for the great music for our reception drinks. It really helped the afternoon go with a swing, and many of our thank you notes are peppered with mentions of the fantastic jazz and the tuba, in particular, has been noted multiple times! It really was a glorious day, and having you playing there made it all the more special. Enjoy the rest of the summer and thank you once again
Dear Jonathan. Thank you so much to the band that performed for our wedding on Saturday. They were wonderful performers and we have had only praise from our guests at the wedding party. The sound was exactly what we needed. We were all very impressed. Thank you
Ian and Angela Burden, Kendal
I’m sorry for not emailing you sooner, but I just wanted to say a big thank you for your presence at Leeds Castle. I was being pulled in all directions while you were playing so I couldn’t say hello, but I just wanted to email to let you know that your playing made a wonderful impact on the day for everyone. Those organising the wedding actually kept it a secret from me, so hearing you play was a really nice surprise. I can tell you Rosemary, my brand new wife, loved it as well. Thanks again and all the best
Dan Smiley, Maidstone
Hi Jonathan, I just wanted to drop you a (now slight belated) email to thank you for attending our wedding in Rowledge on Saturday 6th August. We managed to keep your attendance a surprise from 95% of the guest and we had so many comments about how fun the walk back from the church was and how they loved your playing during the drinks reception. Many thanks again
Jennifer & Andy
Dear Jonathan, I wanted to put pen to paper to thank you and the band for an absolutely splendid performance last Saturday. The three players, whose names – I am ashamed to admit – escape me (one tends to drink a little on ones’ 50th) were fantastic. Smiling, easy going and accommodating yet thoroughly professional, they played superbly and contributed hugely to the success of the party. It was an absolute pleasure to have them around and their 1st class playing was enjoyed by all. I cannot wait to have them back another time. Merck beaucoup
Olivier Hubert, Southampton
We were very impressed with The Silk Street 3-piece. Great feedback from our guests, and very professional attitude 5/5
We hired the 3 piece band for our wedding to make an event of the short 10 min walk between the church, and what an event it became! The band were fantastic! The walk was brilliant with the guys playing, and so many of our guests told us it was one of their favourite parts of the day. The band are very professional and they also played a great set during our drinks reception creating a great atmosphere and really setting the tone for the day. We highly recommend them
Andy & Jennie
Sharon and I were delighted with the great start which you gave to our party – having the drinks out in the garden worked out well and the lively and fun programme you gave us was the perfect introduction to the evening. Perhaps you’d be kind enough to convey our sincere thanks to your colleagues
Paul & Sharon
Just a quick note to say thank you for your support at last week’s event. Silk Street were great and really set the tone of the event. They were all really friendly and great to work with, they just got on with it which is a massive help for me when there’s so many other things to organise! Please pass on my thanks to them all and I look forward to working with you on the next one
Just a quick email to say what an utterly fabulous time I had at my party! The band was sensational! They had everyone toe tapping and singing along. I loved them, please pass on my thanks to the 3 lovely gents
The band met our needs, thank you we’ll use you again as and when needed
I wanted thank you again for Saturday. Your great performance and your friendly attitude contributed to set the best tone for the rest of the evening. We had a perfect day, hope you enjoyed too!
We had a lovely afternoon on the New Orleans on Saturday, the crew were excellent and very polite. The catering was really good and all my guests commented on how tasty it all was. The Silk Street Jazz band were brilliant too
All of my guests said how wonderful the Silk Street Jazz Band was, thank you so much
Hi Jonathan. I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you very much for performing at our event on Saturday night. The event was a great success the band were great
I am just dropping you a line to say thank you to the guys – they did an excellent job for us on Saturday night. I guess it is not easy playing whilst everyone is chatting and eating but they were very professional and played well
Amazing! We loved the Silk Street Quartet. They certainly brought an energy and vibrancy to the afternoon. Fabulous musicians who were so very accommodating. Our guests loved them especially whey they played the request for the Jungle Book! – Again brilliant
Fran & Gary
Fantastic band, even with our venue being a little difficult to work
Dear Jonathan. You provide a very professional service which gave me confidence from the outset. The band was excellent in every way. They arrived in good time, were charming, looked the part in their smart waistcoats and the music was lovely. Many of our guests remarked on how much they enjoyed their playing. They certainly helped to make the event memorable, so thanks again. I’d be happy to give a recommendation if you ever you need one
These guys were absolutely amazing. Thank you so so much. They played so beautifully before, during and after our ceremony and kept all our guests wonderfully entertained while they were waiting for me to arrive. They were absolutely perfect and set the fun tone we wanted for our wedding day. They also fantastically accompanied one of my best friends who sang with them during the ceremony and were so accommodating in arranging things with her. Honestly could not thank you guys enough. All and best and have a wonderful Christmas.
Tori and Matt
You were all amazing. I just love jazz and even those who weren’t sure about the genre are now converts. Will see you again.
The Silk Street Santas and elves were fab on Saturday, the crowd loved them Thank you
The band was superb and their music was first class
Jonh & Sheila Wainwright
Very professional and greatly contributed to the success of our event. They met our requirements perfectly!
Gill Ratcliff, Epping Town Council
The evening was very well enjoyed and your band really topped it off. Thoroughly enjoyed
Just to let you know that the client yesterday was really impressed with Silk Street Jazz and also said that the public loved them. He is thinking of booking several Saturdays in the run up to Xmas next year too
You guys must be the best New Orleans band outside of New Orleans!
We had an amazing time, the Cotton Club theme just came together with the Silk Street band performing the really authentic 20/30s New Orleans Jazz, the dance floor was full all evening. You must book these guys, they are the best!
Sue Amery, Leicestershire
Hi Jonathan, I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the guys for today’s performance. Truly professional and great fun! We had so many compliments and everyone enjoyed the music, it made the day special
Thank You so much for all the wonderful music on Saturday, you really enhanced the wedding reception
Good evening, Jonathan. I just wanted to thank you for an absolutely wonderful band. They were truly superb and contributed to a really fantastic night. Please pass on my thanks to them, they did an outstanding job – what a talented group of gents!
The band played during the drinks reception of our wedding and were amazing. They were warm and friendly to all who spoke to them and were very understanding and accommodating about location changes due to weather. Their playing was of an excellent standard and their two sets were just what we wanted. So pleased with our chcoice of booking them. Would highly recommend to all. Fantastic
Dear Jonathan. I expect that you must be weary with plaudits by now, but we enjoyed your playing so much that I have to write to express our appreciation. It goes without saying that your playing was wonderful, the repertoire absolutely appropriate to the occasion, and that you all looked splendid in your immaculate uniforms. However, I must mention two things that particularly impressed me. Firstly, the trouble you took with our tiny guests will have left them all with lifelong memories of your band and our party. Secondly, as a wind player myself, I was full of admiration for how softly you could play, and how there was no need for us to ask you to ‘keep it down’ when circumstances called for it. It was a delight to have you in our home and at our party. True professionals!
Hi Jonathan. Just wanted to say thanks. The guys were amazing. Totally completed the vibe we wanted. We will spread the good word and hopefully use you again ourselves in future. All the best
Adam & Emma
Sorry it’s taken us so long to write to you (we can’t believe that our wedding was over a month ago already!) but we just wanted to say thank you for playing at our 1920s/30s themed wedding in November. The musicians from the 1920′s Lucky Four were outstanding, providing great music for our swing-dancing guests to dance to and a fantastic atmosphere for our non-dancing guests to enjoy. We will be sure to recommend you! Thanks again and best wishes for 2014
Mel & Matt
The 1920′s band were exactly what we hoped for. Playing background music for our wedding drinks reception in the garden in the glorious British countryside. The guys looked the part, the music was great and their performance was brilliant
Hi Jonathan. I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so much to Silk Street Jazz for performing at our wedding. They were amazing! We loved them playing our exit song and everyone really enjoyed listening to them in the gorgeous sunshine with a glass of fizz in the drinks reception. They were very professional, friendly and I would not hesitate to book them again. I have recommended them to all my friends! Thanks once again and best wishes
As always Silk Street were brilliant, thank you for coming to Sandown again
The Band were brilliant, the whole experience of booking was easy and hassle free and everyone enjoyed the music
Jonathan. I just wanted to say thank you to Silk Street for playing on Saturday. The music received lots of favourable comments and those who spoke to the musicians found them very friendly. Kind Regards
Hi Jonathan. Just a quick note to say thanks for the performance at my wedding on the 12th September. Everyone loved the music and it really made the day extra special
Thanks so much – the guys were lovely, smartly turned out and very professional, they moved around as requested and the music was simply excellent. Was a wonderful addition to the wedding. Many thanks indeed! We will definitely use you again
Our wedding theme was ‘English garden picnic’ and for the drinks reception we had lawn games, ice cream, pimms etc. The Silk Street band really topped off the garden party feeling. We receive many comments on how our guests loved their music, very easy and lovely to listen to. Even caught our nan having a dance to them! Thank you
Dear Jonathan, Just to say thank you for an excellent afternoons entertainment. Everyone complimented me on a marvellous choice of band and your selection of music was really appreciated. I shall bear you in mind for my 80th, but that will be in France. My kind regards to you and your fellow musicians
All aspects of the booking were handled with great efficiency. The band was excellent, arriving on time and well turned out. They played a perfect selection of items, all to a very high standard and moved around among the guests so that everyone had a chance to enjoy what they were doing. Overall, very well done!
I just wanted to say thank you so much to you and of course the musicians themselves for everything on Saturday. It was a pretty stressful day for me and it was just so refreshing to have your team just do their thing and get on with everything so I didn’t need to worry. I was rushing around so much I didn’t get a chance to say thank you and goodbye on the day so please do pass them my best
Dear Jonathan. Just a note to say thank you very much to the Silk Street Trio on Friday. I’m sorry that we did not get to personally thank you but you guys sounded fantastic and we were delighted, please pass on our thanks
Sally and Waheed
Dear Silk Street. I just wanted to say thank you again for the utterly splendid performance at Jim’s funeral and reception in Tamworth last Friday. Everybody said what a great band and how much they’d enjoyed the music, and the dancing, and how much Jim himself would’ve enjoyed and approved of it all. I wish all the Silk Street musicians all the best of everything in the future
Dear Jonathan. We just wanted to drop you a quick line to say a huge thank you to yourself firstly, for the organisation, and also to the fantastic band members for their professionalism, respect, and superb musicianship on Friday which really helped to make the day exactly as we intended, and hopefully as Dennis would have wished, special and memorable. Again, a massive thanks
Cheryl & Michael
Dear Jonathan, A very belated thank you to you and to your excellent four-piece combo for playing at my birthday party, which I can hardly believe was two weeks ago today. Almost every one of our guests went out of their way to say how much they had enjoyed the music – and it was absolutely the style and quality that I was hoping for. All four of them very delightful as people and they added enormously to the enjoyment of the party. I should also say that I was extremely impressed also with the organisation of your business. I have dealt with a goodly number of bands over the years but never with one that was so professionally run and so geared to the needs of the client. Many thanks and all best wishes
Hi Jonathan, I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you all for the amazing music yesterday. So many people commented on how fantastic it was. They just knew it was going to be a great day full of wonderful music. The music really helped set the scene and everyone so much loved being outside in the sun listening to you. Thank you for playing our favourite New Orleans jazz songs too when we finally arrived! We just wish we were able to hear all the songs ourselves. I am also sorry that I didn’t get to meet you all in person afterwards but we seemed to be pulled in a few directions! I hope however that our paths will cross again in the future. Take care and thank you so much again! It really contributed to our special day
Lisa & James
Dear Jonathan. Very many thanks for your playing last Thursday night. The group gave us exactly the atmosphere we had been looking for and we have had so many appreciative comments. In particular, a special thanks from the two of us for giving us Fanlight Fanny. Best regards
The band was perfect and exactly what we were after. Thank you very much
Hi Jonathan. Just to say a big thank you for organising the band to play at my Mother’s funeral. They did a grand job playing us down the road from my Mother’s house, then at the crematorium and finally at Chilston Park Hotel where their joyful playing lifted the spirits. Please pass on my sincere thanks to all the guys in the band
Hi Jonathan. Many thanks to your guys for a great performance on Saturday, all the guests loved it, and they really helped set the tone for a fantastic day
Phil and I thank you all so much for your wonderful contribution to his birthday dinner last Thursday. We were absolutely delighted and there were so many marvellous comments. You may have noticed guests jigging about in their seats in time to the music!
Phil and Jenny Stewart
Just a quick email to thank you and the band very much for Saturday. You were a pleasure to work with and we have had lots of lovely feedback
Hi Jonathan, Keith and I would just like to say a massive thank you to the guys from Silk Street for everything yesterday. They were absolutely brilliant and everyone commented on how good they were. They were a great addition during photos, so as to keep people entertained. They were really polite and turned up at exactly the right moment, so thanks for everything and please pass on our best regards. We had a fantastic day – Many thanks
Stacey & Keith

Hi Jonathan. Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the other members of the band for music on Thursday. Many people commented on how wonderful you were and I’m sure it would have out a big smile on my Grandad’s face hearing you all. I’m sorry I didn’t get chance to speak to you on the day, but wanted to pass on my sincere thanks to you all. Hearing you play really made me wish I’d had a band for my wedding. I will have to work on my husband to book you for our 10 year anniversary!
Thank you for yesterday, you made all the difference
I write this email to say thank you for yesterday’s band of cheerful players. The music was excellent and the family were so pleased with the way things went. I have no hesitation in recommending your services to other Funeral Directors or families
Good evening. I just wanted to say thank you for such a great performance on Saturday, you guys were simply amazing! Thank you so much for making our day so brilliant!
Hi Jonathan. Thank you very much for the excellent performance yesterday at the Compleat Angler. Everyone, including us, thought you were brilliant. All very best wishes
I just wanted to say that your guys were fabulous – everybody commented on how they really made the atmosphere. They arrived punctually (and the text a couple of days before confirming was reassuring), played terrifically and then packed up and left with a minimum of fuss
Hi Jonathan, I just wanted to email to say how great the guys were that played at my Dad’s funeral. Excellent from start to finish, very respectful and considerate. It really made the day special for my Mum
Hi Jonathan. I realise this is slightly belated, but I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the guys who came down to play for Lance’s birthday – they were brilliant and were everything we hoped they’d be and more. Thanks so much for all your help in the lead up to the party – it made it a perfectly smooth ride for us, and all the more enjoyable because of it. Hope you all have a great summer, Very best wishes to you all
Dear Jonathan. I hope you are well. I Just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic music at my wedding. The band was absolutely terrific, set a great vibe for the party and everyone was appreciative and enjoyed the music very much. Hope it was good for them too and wasn’t too much of an effort for them to get to us on summer solstice! It was a very memorable day, a perfect day, and I’m so happy to have had you guys be a part of it. Thanks very much again and all the best to you!
Jonathan, I’d just like to say a HUGE BIG THANK YOU. You were the topic of conversation. Best regards
Thank you to the marvellous trio who entertained us so well on my rather special birthday
Everybody I spoke to was incredibly friendly and helpful. The singing Santas were amazing – Thank you!
Laura Grumbridge (Storm Models)
Following our wedding on the 13th Sept, I was hoping you could pass on our MASSIVE thanks to the band for making it such a memorable occasion! The feedback we have received is that they were many people’s highlight of the day (including the bride!) so we couldn’t be happier. The fact they were able to play outside with the sun shining was a bonus! It was certainly a weekend to remember
We can’t thank you enough for everything you did ahead of the wedding day and then the day itself, you were all brilliant. It was absolutely perfect and the music captured our style so well! Everyone loved the band and said how it fitted the day so so well
Dear Jonathan and everybody in the Silk Street band. Thank you for such a stunning evening on our wedding on 21 June. The band played perfectly and we both had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the music so much and all our guests did too. The band also looked very smart. We hope they had as much fun as we did. Thank you for all of your help in the run-up as well and for being so helpful with the music selection. Our first dance to ‘Let’s Misbehave’ was lovely
Juliana & Alistair
Hi Jonathan, just emailing to say thank you for last weekend! You guys were a hit with the guests as we knew you would be! My 89-year-old grandfather in particular. Many thanks again
Dear Jonathan, A big thanks to you and all your fellow musicians for the jazz last night – the music was great and set the mood for lots of dancing, just as I’d hoped. So many people said how much they’d enjoyed it afterwards. It was a big part of what made the party such a success
Hi Jonathan, I just wanted to drop you a note to say how thrilled my new husband and I were with the performers at our wedding yesterday. They sounded and looked absolutely perfect. A number of our guests commented on how original and enjoyable the music was. Their contribution really helped make the event extremely special for us. Please thank them on our behalf. All the best
Megan & Jake
The band were absolutely brilliant and gave the whole exhibition a real buzz. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the quality of the music was superb. I cannot recommend Jonathan and the lads highly enough
Graham Thornton MIH
Good evening Jonathan. Apologies for not being in touch with a personal thank you. I would like to express my gratitude via a thank you card and thank Silk Street for making my mum’s passing very special, the band performed brilliantly
Thanks so much for helping to make Mum’s send off so great. We all really enjoyed the music and it gave our celebration a magic edge [Please find attached article from the Richmond and Twickenham Times]. Thanks to all of you (and say a particular hi to the clarinet player from my sister-in-law, Ally!). Best regards to you all
I’ve been meaning to thank you for the excellent jazz at our anniversary party on June 8th. The music was enjoyed by all. The music helped make the day a special one for us
Noel & Wendy North
Thank you for all your help with the funeral, it was much appreciated
I would just like to say thank you for everything…your band were amazing, made the day bearable, my nan would have loved it. Please pass on my regards to the gentlemen involved
Dear Jonathan. A heartfelt (if belated) thank you for the amazing trio who performed the brilliant music for our wedding party in June. The guests relaxing in the garden particularly enjoyed their performance. We were really impressed with your professionalism and skill and thank you also for the CD – a lovely memento of our day
Sarah & Andy Nendick
Fantastic band, very professional and talented musicians, they made the day a memorable one. Thank you so much
I would just like to say thank you for yesterday. If George had of been there he would have loved it – thank you
To the band. Thanks so much for joining us yesterday at our awards ceremony. We had spent a ridiculous amount of time considering the type of music we wanted. Now I feel that every hour was worth it, because it led to you! Completely fantastic! We will let you know as soon as we have a date for next year and very much hope that you will enliven our event so wonderfully again. Best wishes
Dear Jonathan, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to the Lucky Four last weekend. They made my party fabulous! Lots of guests commented on their music and how they blended into the 1920s event so thank you once again
Excellent communication all the way through the booking. A lovely, flexible, relaxed band who really created our party! Thank you
I can’t thank the guys enough for yesterday, they were amazing and the day could not have gone any better. Everyone were blown away and it was just the send off Jim would have wanted. I will recommend you guys to everyone. Thanks again
Dear Jonathan, I just wanted to say thanks for the fantastic performance last Saturday night for our wedding reception at the Driver. The band was terrific and really made the whole night. It made our wedding very special. All of our guests were really impressed with the quality of the music and the band more generally. Thanks so much again. We are eternally grateful
Remi & Miren
My apologies for the delay in writing to you. I would like to thank you and your fellow musicians for the absolutely wonderful entertainment you provided for us on the William B Boat on the Thames last Sunday. All of our friends commented on the music, so I wouldn’t be at all surprised if you got calls from many of our guests to do a gig at one of their functions. Thanks once again. Best wishes
We just wanted to say thank you to the Silk Street for their excellent jolly music last Saturday for our wedding. They were extremely professional, and when we walked into the reception room from the ceremony they were already there, perfectly positioned and ready to play. I thought they were a much more interesting and memorable alternative to a string quartet. I was extremely impressed and we will keep them in mind in the future
Your band was amazing, my feet were tapping all the way through our wedding breakfast! Many of our guests commented on the fabulous music, I’m recommending you to all my friends. Thanks again for adding ambience and excitement to the day
We would like to extend our greatest thanks to the guys who came to the house. It was absolutely perfect and our Mother would have loved it – it really did add to the wonderful send off we gave her
Alan & Linda Bloomfield
Firstly, we would like to apologise because we did not get an opportunity to personally thank you for the amazing music that you played on Saturday..time just whizzed by! Anyway, you were fab, all the guests thought you were fantastic and many asked us for your details. You set the best atmosphere for the day and what an amazing day it was in the sunshine. Thank you so so much…excellent music and worth every penny! Thanks again
Sarah and Rich Wensley
Jonathan, My mother will write to you separately but may I thank you and the other members of the band for making the event such a celebration. The music was exactly what my Dad would have wanted. We did not tell anyone about the band and it created just the effect I wanted in that when people came out of the service, all said how good the band was, and not, so sorry for your loss. I cannot thank you enough also for your support while arranging the event
Hi Jonathan. I just wanted to thank you for organising the Silk Street Jazz band for our “Great Gatsby” themed party. They were absolutely superb and everyone commented on how the band helped to really capture the spirit of the 1920s. The day was a great success and we would not hesitate in calling on you on you again for future events
Hi Jonathan. It was so lovely to meet the band at our Highclere event on 27th March. I wanted to write on behalf of both the National Osteoporosis Society and JDRF, the type 1 diabetes charity to express our sincere gratitude to Silk Street for performing on the night and for so wonderfully entertaining our guests during the drinks reception. Although we still have some accounting to do, our initial figures show that we raised £172,000 gross from the evening. We are delighted with the total raised which will go a long way in helping both charities to continue their work improving the lives of people affected by osteoporosis and type 1 diabetes
Thanks guys, we both thought you were absolutely fantastic and would like to book you again for our next daughter’s wedding although it may be some years yet!
Tracey and Les Summerscales
Dear Jonathan. The guys were absolutely cracking and really lifted spirits. A thoroughly professional trio and lovely people too. They absolutely made it for the family and I shall be posting something on your site as a reference. Thank you so much, I was really proud to lead the funeral. Kindest regards
I would just like to give a big thank you to the three Jazz players who attended our house in Sale on 18th January. They made Mum’s 90th birthday very, very special. She told me it was the first birthday party she had ever had in her life
Dear Jonathan and Silk Street musicians. A belated thank you from Gina and I for the wonderful job you did in performing for our wedding ceremony and reception at Great Fosters in September. We wish you and your families good health, happiness and prosperity in the New Year
Ashif & Gina Velji
Hi Jonathan. Just a short note to say sincere thanks for performing at our event on Saturday. Having the Silk Street band there added a great deal to the atmosphere and everyone really enjoyed seeing and hearing you all perform. You are the ideal people to have in our new Show Street area and I wish we could do this more often rather than just on special occasions! Thanks again, the music was brilliant
Dear Jonathan. We just wanted you to pass on our thanks to your musicians for our wedding day. Having the Dixeland Jazz band in the church was such a highlight on the day. It made the atmosphere fun, lighthearted and such an amazingly happy occasion. Your guys handled the hot weather so well. They surpassed all expectations and we hope to be able to hire them again one day. Your pianist was also just perfect. We have footage of him playing one of our favourite 60′s songs without even asking him! Our guests raved about his music and we think hiring Silk Street was the best decision and one of the most effective and enjoyable parts of our wedding. Big hugs and thank you’s! We wish we could do it all over again
Emma & Gilles
Dear Silk Street, We just wanted to thank you for the wonderful touch you added to our Dad’s day on Friday 22nd March. It was a bitterly cold day and we so appreciated you playing as we walked in and by the flowers after the service. The Moon River piece sounded beautiful and we have received so many comments about the day. It fills our sad hearts with pride. Thank you again
Billy Jane and Lisa
I just wanted to say a huge and heartfelt thank you to the Silk Street Hot Three for their fantastic performance at our wedding on 2 June. They started to play just as we were coming up the drive and with everyone enjoying cocktails on the lawn and the fabulous dixie jazz we felt like we were in a scene from the Great Gatsby. The band played some great numbers, and their timing (pausing for speeches etc) was impeccable, exactly as we had asked. We couldn’t have hoped for a better backdrop to our wedding day and we would certainly use the band again
Francesca and Charlie Iverson
We had the four-piece band for our wedding reception on 28th May and the band were fantastic! Everyone commented on how great they sounded and how professional they were. You helped set the scene for the evening entertainment! Thanks again and keep up the fantastic work
David and Janey
An excellent band, they really captured the moment and were in the right place at the right time to capture the mood. Very impressed. Just the right band for the wedding
Hi Jonathan, we have just got back from our Honeymoon and we just wanted to say a massive thank you for the music on our wedding day – we loved it and the guests were loving it as well! We will, of course write on your facebook/twitter pages and will be sure to recommend you to everyone we can!
Charlotte and Ryan
Dear Jonathan, I just wanted to say thank you very much indeed to you and your band mates very much for doing such a fantastic job on Saturday. Everybody commented on how great the music was and I know it was the icing on the cake of the party – my Dad absolutely loved it! My cousin’s wife, Amanda says she will be contacting you soon re a potential booking for a work do. Many thanks again
All I can really say is thank you very much for a fantastic event. The whole process was so easy, hassle free and professional right from my additional enquiry to the end of the evening and the band was simply brilliant
Jonathan, I just wanted to say thank you to you and your band for making such a fantastic contribution to my father’s funeral. He so would have loved it and the wonderful sound helped to make it a joyous occasion. Everyone we spoke to said how much they loved having you there. I think music is so soulful and when played live it helps make the ritual of the funeral more special. With many thanks
Martine and family
Thank you so very much for playing at our wedding. We knew we were in safe hands and it was wonderful to finally enjoy great music being played so well. We loved it and so many of friends have written to say they did too. We’re glad you enjoyed your position on the bower / band stand. It made a great sight and helped create a lovely atmosphere on the day
Hester & Nick
Thanks for everything on Friday the family and us thought you were great
Jonathan, Just a quick note to that you and the rest of the team for Saturday – the band went down really well and set the scene for the afternoon beautifully – thank you so much
Dear Jonathan. So we’re back from Honeymoon and I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for performing at our big day. What we saw and heard was utterly fantastic and we’ve received nothing but positive comments about how great you guys both looked and sounded. You really set the mood and the venue and weather were perfect for it so it really went down very well. Many thanks once again, and the next time I’m in need of a Jazz band I’ll be sure to think of you!
Chris and Samantha Hallas
A massive thank you for adding that dixie vibe we were looking for to our wedding day, you were amazing, we had lots of great comments from our guests. These boys are reliable, reasonable, friendly and best of all great at jazz on the move and getting a crowd tapping their feet!
Hannah & Mike
We had such an amazing wedding day and everything went perfectly to plan – everyone loved the buzz of the band as they arrived and they were so fitting for our English Afternoon Tea themed day. We all enjoyed the outfits and the music got everyone into the party mood. Thanks so much for your support on planning our long distance wedding – it was much appreciated
Gemma & Colin Monk
Hi Jonathan, Sorry for the late response currently catching up with my emails. The event was very successful thank you and a big part of that goes down to the girls and the band really pulling it together! Both the 1920s band and the flapper girls were very accommodating and impressive with their work. Please will you give your acts my warmest thanks and I also appreciate all of your patience throughout the past month with the booking. Happy New Year and thanks again.
Dear Jonathan, Just a quick note to say a big thank you to Silk Street Jazz for the fantastic music at our wedding reception. The bride and groom were thrilled as this bit of the wedding plan was a big surprise to them!. The musicians were brilliant and just put the final touches to the reception in our garden. I didn’t actually get a chance to speak to them on the day so I would like to take this opportunity to thank them and yourself for helping to make Nick and Karen’s wedding a day to remember. It all went like clockwork and your administration was faultless. Once again many thanks
A huge thank you to the quartet who played at Ickworth on Saturday night. They were helpful, courteous, professional and very talented. It was wonderful to watch and listen to them at work. Please pass on our thanks to all four of them. Thank you for also making the booking process so smooth and easy. We look forward to working with you again in the future
Amanda McIlwaine, Mrs Mac Ltd
Hi Jonathan. Thanks so much for providing that extra touch that made our wedding one ‘not to be forgotten’. Everyone just loved your music which gave huge atmosphere and joy to the day. Many thanks
Just wanted to say a thank you for the excellent music last Thursday evening. The night was a great success and we had a fantastic turn out
Many thanks for everything on Friday 30th August – we had a great time and our guests thought that you were superb – we had some great comments. All the very best
Just wanted to say thanks for playing last Saturday. It was just what we wanted and you helped the party go well! We’ve had many comments about how much everyone enjoyed your music
Hi Jonathan. Thanks very much for your performance at our garden party on 27th June. We and our guests very much enjoyed your music
Thanks for your services on the day of Sandown many people have commented on how much they liked your music. I will be passing on your details to the next person who will be arranging our event next year.
Fabulous. Thanks so much. My dad really appreciated the music on his Birthday. Silk Street was very professional and I’d thoroughly recommend you
Just to say how much enjoyment the band gave us on Saturday. The three charming musicians were a real asset to the party. I will have no hesitation in booking the band again and several guests requested details. Thank you for all your help
Thank you so so much for your wonderful music during our wedding yesterday! Sorry we didn’t get a chance to thank you in person yesterday! Everybody commented on what a wonderful atmosphere you provided and were delighted that you were able to play requests!
Nick & Sarah
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the 3 piece you provided for our wedding recently (Friars Court, 21/8). The band looked and sounded great – everyone loved them!
April & Alex Carter
Silk Street provided happy, joyful music that was the perfect accompaniment to our wedding. The band were smart, professional, obliging and made the transition from in the background’ to ‘everybody dance’ without missing a beat. Highly recommended
David & Pippa Ward
Joanna, myself and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the music provided by the Silk Street 2-piece during our wedding and drinks reception. The booking process was simple and your rapid response to any email queries was always reassuring. The musicians were very professional and played an entirely appropriate selection of tunes – they really helped to create a wonderful atmosphere in both the ceremony and the drinks reception. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and will certainly consider booking with you again for any future events
Edward & Joanne Fotrell
Silk Street was superb and exactly what I was looking for. They were professional, looked great, played brilliantly and importantly played the style I was expecting and they were a nice group of people too!
Just wanted to say a very big thank you for Friday night. You made the evening very special and everyone commented on how wonderful you all were
Dear Jonathan. I wanted to get in touch to say how much we enjoyed the music last Thursday – there have been many many compliments from across chambers. Thanks again and all the best
The booking process was very easy and the SMS updates were especially helpful. The band was punctual, smart, helpful and the music was fantastic. We had nothing but positive feedback from everyone at the event and would definitely use the band for future events, recommending them to anyone
Dear Silk Street. A big thank you for your fantastic performance at our Lavender Lawn Party last Monday, you gave the event much more life! You are very talented indeed
Thank you so much for making our wedding so jolly with your fantastic music, you really captured the mood of the day. We will certainly be looking to use Silk Street again for future events and will recommend you to all of our friends and family
Katharine & Conrad Young
Thank you to your quartet for the fantastic music at our wedding reception. All performers were of a high professional standard in both skill and attitude. The music was much appreciated by our guests and created a joyful and relaxed atmosphere. Your booking process was simple and efficient and the personal service much appreciated. I will recommend Silk Street Jazz to all of my friends
A quick e-mail to say a big thanks to you and the other guys in the band for playing for us yesterday. I guess it can’t be easy playing at a funeral but you guys were brilliant – respectful for the occasion and excellent music! Many of my guests commented how good you were and I will recommend you to anyone who asks. Thanks again and good luck for the future!
This is to say thank you to you all from my sisters and I. Ever since we were little our dad had said he wanted a jazz band to play him out at his funeral and when he died suddenly we were thrown into finding a jazz band that would do him justice and against all odds we found you and what an amazing find. You did both our dad, us and yourselves proud. Everyone at the funeral thought your playing and service was exceptional, from leading the hearse and mourners through the crematorium to the service, to playing when we came out to view the flowers. Your playing at the wake afterwards made the day special and we know dad would have loved it. Since this time we have recommended you to other people and have also been contacted by the funeral home that arranged our fathers funeral, asking if we would recommend you and asking for your details. This information we have been more than happy to pass along. Any funeral is a difficult time, however, our dad died 7 months after our mum so this was especially hard but being able to give dad what he always wanted and make the day so special made it somewhat easier. Your attention to detail, compassion and fitting in with what we wanted without fuss or stress made the whole process easier to deal with at a very difficult time. Thank you to you all
Moria, Cathie & Shelagh
Many thanks for helping us with one of our most successful parties in recent years to which the Silk Street Hot Quartet contributed in no small part. The band looked great and the music was ideal for the situation – lively without being overpowering. We look forward to you entertaining us on future occasions
Philip Cook, Marketing Manager, St. Anthony’s Hospital
Thank you for performing such a great set at our wedding…One of my most vivid memories is Edward and I arriving at our reception and before walking in we took 5 mins to stand and listen out of sight to the jazz. It was such a great feeling to hear the music and the chatter of all our guests. Everyone I have spoken to since has been incredibly complimentary about the band. You looked the part and you really did bring a smile to people’s faces and ensure that the reception kicked off in style. The atmosphere created was such that it made everyone feel so relaxed and there was no awkward chit chat – people were straight in there on the Pimms and gossiping away! If anyone is ever looking for a jazz band, I will be sure to recommend you
Please pass on our thanks to all the musicians who came to our reception at the Devonport on 30th December. We really enjoyed the pianist through the meal and many of our guests on the day and since have said how wonderful the five piece band was
Chris & Sharon Foster-King
I have nothing but praise for your band, you were absolutely fantastic. The moment when Neal and I walked into the garden of Winchester House and you broke into song was a real high point. You helped to set a celebratory atmosphere and kept everyones spirits up when it started raining. One guest commented that the reception felt like “Henley in London”, which was exactly the feel I was aiming for. Rest assured, I will be recommending you to anyone who needs a Dixie Band. Thank you so much for being a part of our special day
Nick and I wanted to say many thanks to you and the band for playing so well and with such charisma at our wedding. We, our families and the other guests really enjoyed the music and it added to the atmosphere immensely. My sister has already recommended you to her friend
I just wanted to say the biggest thank you to you and the band. Oh my, you were all great. Everybody thinks you were the best live band they have ever heard. Everybody wants to book you for their parties. I really can’t thank you enough, you made the day so perfect
Thank you so much for Saturday night. I had lots of compliments from the guests about you guys and most importantly my dad loved it
Hannah Ditch, Catering Manager, Searcy’s, London
“I’d like to say how fantastic you were. The party had started at 1pm and before your set started in the early evening the guests were flagging a bit, you really managed to create a wonderful atmosphere, not too intrusive for guests who wanted to natter, but lively enough for those who wanted to enjoy the music. My whole family, including my (2 year old) daughter loved your whole set and I am so pleased to have tracked you down
Hannah Ditch (re-booked the following year)
I’ve never heard a bunch of young guys perform such old music so brilliantly
Waverley & Balmoral Cruises, Essex
All I can say is thank you so much for a fantastic performance, you really helped the day go well and everybody commented on the music being fantastic. I will be recommending you to everyone I know so you may get some strange phone calls!
Charlotte Adkin (Bride), London
Please convey my thanks to all members for a fantastic display at my daughter Catherine’s wedding. We had so many fantastic comments, including the uniqueness of your group and of the wedding in general. It all went perfectly
Graham Garfoot (Father of the Bride)
Hi Jonathan – thank you so much for last night – we loved it! Lots of our guests said you were great and so much fun! Thank you too for being so professional – with so much going on it was very reassuring to know that I could leave you to it. Please pass on my thanks to the other members of the band. Hope you all got home safely
Thank You. You made the booking very straight forward to deal with. I will of course tell all of our other branches of your services
Judy (Funeral Directors), London
I just wanted to write a big thanks and to tell you how hugely delighted we were with Silk Street Jazz Band, they were everything and more than we were hoping for, they made the afternoon go with a swing. They looked great in their Boaters and Striped Jackets and sounded even better! We would highly recommend
Please thank the Silk Street 4-piece band so much, they really made the day special, lighter and memorable. The tone of the music was perfect as was the delivery. The band hopped on the bus, entertaining us to exhibition road with a sing song too! Many thanks again
Hi Jonathan, I just wanted to say thank you for your performance on Saturday. Everyone said how impressive you guys were and you played your part in making it a very special day
Dear Silk Street Hot Four. Thanks for yesterday’s performance at the Sand’s End Community Centre. It made all the difference to the colour and flavour of our protest with the children and everyone loved you! You were all so professional and put on a great show. Thank you for your support
Rosie Borgia & Nick Bardoni, for the Save Sands End Community Centre Action Group
We were very impressed. The band helped to create a fantastic feel to the event and all of our guests commented on how great the band was. The booking was straight forward and lots of communication at the right times. All in all we were very happy with the overall service provided. The music itself was fab
Vicki & Simon Mackey
I would like to say a very big thank you for playing at our Mum’s funeral. We were all pleased and mum would have loved it. I bet she had a smile on her face when she left this world. Everyone said how lovely you were. Thanks so much guys
Dawn & Family
What a fantastic experience to have Silk Street lead my mum’s funeral procession with a 12 piece New Orleans style Jazz Band. Silk Street showed up in full uniform with the presence of a thousand musicians. The tiny streets of Linden in Gloucester were swinging with that awesome New Orleans sound. We all felt incredibly important, people were running to their gates with their mouths wide open. I wanted to celebrate my mum’s life, Silk Street captured the spirit and made it happen, beyond my wildest dreams. Thank you
The Silk Street 3-piece played during our wedding reception at London Rowing Club. They were everything we’d hoped for, they looked the part and played a great mix of up-tempo dixie standards. Great sunshine party music
The band were fantastic, completely making the evening for us. It was great to have a fun, young group of talented guys who really seemed to want to be there. I can’t wait to have them back for our next event, I would like to think it could become something of a tradition
James Coveyduck, CCT Integrated Systems, London
Jonathan (from the band) was very polite, friendly and helpful in the lead-up to the event. On the day they were well prepared and performed brilliantly. We, and our guests, enjoyed their music very much
Guy & Steph
Silk Street were absolutely great, and I’m really sorry we didn’t get a chance to say a proper thank you before they left. We were somewhat caught up in our hosting duties, but I would be really grateful if you could pass on our heartfelt thanks, they really played a significant part in making it such a special day
Thank you for performing so well at my wife’s ‘big birthday party’ recently, your excellent music added a great deal to the occasion. It was a long evening and for you to play so many sets with such untiring enthusiasm was itself very impressive. In brief, we couldn’t have asked for anything better, and would recommend you to anyone
Martin & Gill Ingram, Birthday Party, Oxford
Hi Jonathan. I just wanted to say a big “THANK YOU” for the great sessions on Saturday the 15th June, at our school’s 50th anniversary garden party. The trio coped wonderfully with the weather. Thank goodness we had the marquee to retreat to! Sorry if you had rivulets going down your collars, hopefully the boaters kept the worst of it off. Also thank you for being so understanding with our ‘client group’, actually on the day everyone (especially the staff) were very well behaved. I have been asked by a number of people for your details and so will pass these on confidently, knowing you can cope with anything and still put up an excellent performance. Having the cheerful sounds of Dixie in the background kept us all going
Genni Renehan (Woodcroft School)
The music was great and just what we wanted, thanks so much
Julia & Nigel Roche
A big “thank you” to Silk Street jazz for an excellent performance on Saturday at the Lord Mayor’s Show. Their performance certainly lifted spirits in the cold and the rain! Thank you also for the card, which was much appreciated. I do not know if you caught the Show on BBC iPlayer, but you can hear Silk Street Jazz quite distinctly around our float (number 26). Thank you again to everyone involved. With Kind Regards
Hi Jonathan, Just to say thank you so much for yesterday – The Lucky Four sounded absolutely amazing at my wedding. Thank you so much again and all the best! I will be sure to recommend you guys
