"….absolutely amazing. The musicians were incredibly professional and all of our guests commented on how talented they are. We couldn’t recommend Frankly Jazz highly enough and we definitely hope to see them play again in the very near future." Laura & Daniel
"Wow, what can I say but a huge THANK YOU for a terrific evening. You guys really gave the evening a big lift. I did try and thank every member of the band, individually but only got as far as yourself, the drummer and the sax player, so please do thank the others for me. You all played with so much fervour and passion, it was a truly inspiring performance." Alicia Coker – Douwe Egberts UK
"Well Guys sorry it has taken so long but what more can we say…. You were all amazing and played a huge part in making our wedding very special and a day to remember. All our family and friends said how fantastic you were and have passed on your details to a few. Hope to see you soon." Mr & Mrs Powell
"On the night itself they arrived and set up with no hassle whatsoever, and in no time had everyone dancing and enjoying themselves. Individually and collectively they are superb musicians, and as a bonus they’re all very nice guys, too. We had so many positive comments from all of the guests that we’re in no doubt that we made the right choice. We can’t recommend them highly enough." Tom & Rose
