Testimonials

"I booked Limelite on Battersea Barge for my 40th Birthday Party on the 5th July. From start to finish, they made the process easy, asked me about any special songs I may have and we worked out all the timings without a single drop of stress.
Then on the night, they all looked completely dapper, professional and we're so welcoming and friendly. then came the performance... Just beautiful from start to finish. EVERYONE said how amazing they are, stunning singers who blend fabulously on duets and in solos just shine. To end the evening they dedicated FOUR songs, they have never sang before, just for me on my 40th. My favourite 4 songs and they sang them better than the originals. 
If your thinking about booking this band, please take my highest recommendation. Once again Limelite, THANK YOU, you made my 40th perfect!" Mark Scrivener, July 2013

"I hired the full Limelite live band for my 30th birthday party and from beginning to end could not fault the service I received. Having seen Limelite do a charity Jazzeoke night a few months beforehand I ask them if they would be willing to provide the same entertainment at my party. They were more than happy to accommodate my wishes, even preparing a special song that I had requested to sing. The night itself was a dream, from the beautiful tones of the Limelite singers to the seamless organisation of the Jazzeoke section of the evening. I really could have not hoped for a better band for my party and cannot recommend them highly enough." Emma Butler, Jazzeoke, March 2012

"Id like to thank Limelite for the fantastic set they did at our wedding. They performed brilliantly and I got so many positive comments from my guests, many of whom are professional musicians and one which subsequently booked them for her own wedding. They were so energetic and got everyone up on the dance floor having a wonderful time. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you so much!" C. Caldicot, April 2012

"A fantastic idea, stylishly presented and great fun. The band were faultless, and with an extensive repertoire of jazz, swing and big-band classics, who could resist the chance of getting up on stage and having a go at their favourites?"
Stevie Wyatt, (Sound Engineer - Boy George, The Corrs, Tynchy Strider) about Jazzeoke Dec 2011

A great fun night! Nothing better than blasting out a good jazz standard accompanied by an amazing band... Felt like I was in The Great Gatsby!
Claire Sundin, Jazzeoke-er, London, Dec 2011

"Limelite were great and extremely helpful and kept in constant contact and dealt with the hotel directly saving us time and effort. the set up was great and many of the clients were very impressed with your voice." Sandra Bastinelli, Schroders, April 2011

"Limelite performed at the Battersea Barge and received a warm and enthusiastic response from the audience. Their stylish interpretations of the mainly American songbook were supported by great musicianship from the band and the male and female vocalists really sold the songs! We hope they return here soon for another great night of jazz." Peter Lewis, Battersea Barge, January 2011

"The evening was amazing and the music perfect." Laurence & Catherine Carroll, Wedding, July 2010

"I can't thank you and the rest of Limelite enough for the fantastic music you provided for my joint 50th birthday party last year. The choice of songs and quality of sound was just superb. There was a variety of ages at the party and the music suited us all whether we were up on the dance floor or chatting with friends and family. I just need another excuse for a party to book Limelite again!" Jayne Hosmer, January 2010
