I can honestly say that having the band play at our event was the highlight of our evening. From our initial contact to the end of the evening Mark and the band were always happy to work around our needs which took the pain out of the organising!
Their flexibility, professional attitude and above all, their fantastic performance was exactly what we were looking for. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any event where you want to provide that 'something special' for your guests.

Sarah Curtis - E.ON

Swing with Soul have a huge repertoire spanning eight decades of popular music, including songs performed by Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse and many more - music that is loved by all generations.

Also able to provide a jazz quartet or quintet to create the perfect atmosphere earlier in an evening, Swing with Soul can provide a complete entertainment solution.

Swing with Soul gave a great performance at the RAF Christmas Party. The arrangements all went very smoothly and the show on the night was first rate - the band even agreed to perform an additional set at short notice.
They were virtually held hostage by the crowd until the end of their third encore! I’d have absolutely no hesitation in booking them again.

Ross Thompson - RAF

Oh, we do hope you enjoyed last Friday nearly as much as we did! It was such a special time, which in no small part was down to you. Firstly the lovely, dignified ceremony music, then the happy atmospheric quartet (we loved the Louis Armstrong number) and then your magnificent evening entertainment.
There were people there we had known for thirty years and had never seen dance before! Grandma had to go and fix her mascara after “Georgia On My Mind”!
You all made it feel so special and we hope you know that when “Swing with Soul” are mentioned, it will bring on happy grins in the new Lambert family for at least the next forty years! All good wishes.

Susanne and Martin - Mother and Father of the Bride

I can honestly say that the band were not merely a part of the party, but that they made the party. The standard of musicianship and the panache with which they perform is a credit to them. They gave my family and 200 guests a lot of fun and ensured the evening went with a swing.
Without exception the feedback from my friends was that they have not enjoyed an evening as much as this in a long time. Do not hesitate to book these guys. They’re great!
