Hi Martin Just a quick line to say a huge thank you for a wonderful evenings entertainment last night. Everyone had such a great evening and it was certainly a night to remember with much fun and laughter. With thanks Kind regards Georgina (Birthday Party, Bobbing, Kent, December 2017)

The band was absolutely brilliant and made our special celebration such fun. Everyone enjoyed the evening. We would thoroughly recommend them and if we had another ceilidh would book them again. They were on time and very professional in their attitude.
Richard (Wedding Anniversary, Reading, September 2017)

Thank you all so much!! It was all amazing and we've had so many compliments about how incredible you guys were. Everyone had a fantastic time and we are so so pleased we decided to break from the mould of traditional wedding DJ and go with you guys!
Kind regards! And thank you again Codie and Jules (Wedding, Hawkhurst, August 2017)

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend SWING THE BRIDGE : their playing at our wedding's evening reception was one of our favourite parts of the day! Our guests loved it too and the dance floor was packed the whole evening. SWING THE BRIDGE is a great band to hire if you want everyone up dancing, young and old (and in between!) They're a talented band and happy to turn their hand to a variety of music - perfect for us with a mix of Scottish, English & Irish guests. Martin and his team were a lovely friendly bunch and booking them and agreeing all the timings/details couldn't have been easier. Thank you so much for being part of a really special day.
Best wishes, Jennie & Richard ( November 2016, Odo's Barn, Bilsington, Kent)
