Beautiful on a warm summer's evening.

"The Swing Men provided us with a most excellent and professional evening of music. Their playing was exemplary and the cries of "more" at the end of the evening were an indication of their level of musicianship and ability to interact with the audience. Wedding receptions can be particularly difficult gigs but these guys totally nailed it. We have already booked them for our acoustic music club in December and eagerly look forward to their performance and the opportunity to share the HSG experience with our regular audience."

Tony and Trish , The Stables , Somerset TA4 1QB added this review on 10/05/'14

"Looking round at the audience I noticed most were tapping their feet or bobbing their head to the trio�s first number! Expert rhythm guitar, clean and swift lead and the all important swing of the bass saw several dancers on the small wooden floored area trying to keep up with the fast rhythm. Classics like Caravan and Limehouse Blues had the diners applauding appreciatively. Two hours of music, with a short break to let your feet have a rest the band finished with a flawless rendition of Sweet Georgia Brown. Sadly the evening was over for the music, but I was assured they will return, and I shall be there again giving support for these talented men!!"

"They were amazing! So so chuffed with them. They definitely picked up a few fans. The music was great, they were definitely a hit. If I get the go ahead, id use them again and again. So yes, I'd use them again and recommend them. Thank you so much for everything. You were so helpful and helped me to make the absolute right decision."

"Hi Fabio,
Just a quick email to say WOW! You guys were absolutely bloody brilliant!
So many people are STILL raving about how fantastic you guys were. Your outfit and shoes were mega too!

I can't tell you how much you really did make the evening. No one wanted to leave that Dancefloor, or you to stop playing!
And I have had so many people ask for your details.
Thanks for making such an amazing day even better!
All the best for the future. Keep in touch with your future gigs ( Facebook page?) as I will be at some for sure!
