'Fifi's Vintage Swing Band saw in the new year with style at the Boileroom in Guildford, I couldn't keep my feet off the dancefloor!'
Andrew Ford, guest at The Boileroom, NYE

'Putting On The Blitz. Not only did they look the part, but they brought the audience together, dancing and singing in time to Auld Lang's Syne, and the signature theme for the night, Putting On The Ritz. They went down so well we booked them for our second forties party Blackout, which again was so successful, we had e-mails that evening asking when we'd be putting on another one, with one lady asking if the band could play at her wedding; in short, a group of talented and professional musicians that we had the pleasure of working with and hopefully will be working with again in the future!'
Boiler Room Management, Vintage NYE party

''Thanks so much for performing at my brother's wedding. Your sound really helped to make the atmosphere authentic 1950's!'' Alan Ward - Wedding

''"I just wanted to thank you personally for entertaining us so superbly. We were absolutely delighted with how the evening went and have had many comments on your music and how wonderful it was and appropriate for the occasion. " - Janet - Wedding Anniversary

'I saw the Fifi's Vintage Swing Band at a 1940's event in earlier this year. My fiance and I were so blown away by the beautiful vocals of Phoebe and the talent of the musicians that we just had to book them for our wedding. The atmosphere at the event was brilliant and I am so looking forward to enjoying them with our friends and family.
Sophia Joliffe, bride to be
