Dear Mike, 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.Debroah Meaden

What a fantastic band! We booked Under The Boardwalk for a Charity Gala Ball, and what a wonderful addition to the event they were. All our guests made for the dance floor and were thoroughly entertained and I can't recommend them highly enough. Delightful people and they certainly add value to your event!Jo Flannerty

Dear Mike, I’m sorry for not writing to you sooner to say thank you for everything. You and the band were superb - especially given the massive delay before you were able to perform, and the fact that we forgot to bring the interval playlist(s)! Our guests were extremely complimentary and said they really enjoyed the band and the dancing. So thank you - and thank you for making it all so easy for us too. I hope that we get to see you perform again in the not too distant future. Best wishes.Becky and Andrew

Dear Mike, we wanted to say a huge thank you for being part of our wedding. From the classical music during the ceremony to the full 9-piece jazz band in the evening, the music was just perfect. We have been fans of Under The Boardwalk for a long time and have always said you would be amazing to have at a wedding so we are so pleased you could play for us on our special day. We have had so many comments from our guests about how fantastic the band was and you were definitely one of the highlights of the day. You never fail to get everyone dancing! We are also very grateful for the music you provided for our wedding video. The live recordings have made the videos so personal and bring back the best memories of the day. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you promote this option to other couples in the future. Hopefully you at a Under The Boardwalk event soon. Best wishes.Austin and Amanda

"Dear Mike, Thank you. We had a wonderful time! All our guests said how amazing the band were - which was true! The performance was excellent, as was the choice of songs. Once people had finished eating they were keen to get dancing. Your friends were skilled, charming and courteous. It was a real pleasure to have them with us as guests as well as musicians. And we didn't have any complaints about the sound level - in fact I heard that people walking down the street were joining in and dancing! Please pass on our thanks once again to all the performers - they were wonderful! We look forward to the next time..... Best wishes"Paul Dakin

"We can't thank ‘Under The Boardwalkt' enough for providing such incredible live music and excellent service for our wedding and making a special day extra special. The music was of such a high standard the band were the talk of the evening. Everyone was asking 'where did you find them they're amazing!’ and many people felt like they were at a concert! The band got everyone on their feet dancing and mingling together from 2-92 year olds. It was just as I had dreamed and ended the evening on an incredible high. The band were the easiest planning part of the whole wedding for us as Mike was super quick at responding to my questions providing a friendly, professional and efficient service. Band leader for the evening Kate made everything run smoothly, and she was lovely and reassuring even when things were running a bit late. You're a lovely group of talented people who deserve every success that comes your way!"Emily and Matt

"Hi Mike, Sharon and I are back from our honeymoon now and wanted to send a quick message to thank you and the band for making our day so special. You were brilliant. You sound wonderful, are great entertainers and know how to make an evening go with a swing. We have had extremely positive feedback with quite a few asking for your contact details. We hope something will come of it. Thanks also for accommodating Simon Webbe from Blue - he clearly enjoyed his session and had he had more time would have performed with you all evening. Thanks once again."Richard and Sharon

"We booked Under The Boardwalk for one of our high profile corporate clients and they were fantastic. Arrived on time to set up, and worked brilliantly with the venue and AV companies to ensure everything was set and ready to go on time. Mike and the rest of the band were very helpful and went above and beyond. Then there was the performance, they were fantastic, great vocals and top quality musicians provided the perfect backdrop over dinner. I would highly recommend these guys for any corporate or private functions 10/10." Chris Julian
