Swing Band Testimonials

“ Hi Max
I just want to place on record my sincere thanks to you all for your superb performance on Saturday night at my 50th Birthday Party.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the music and didn't want it to end. The dance floor was full throughout the night and with dancers of all ages. - a real tribute to your artistry.

Many of us woke up on Sunday morning quite bleary eyed but with so many of your wonderful tunes going around in our heads. You have created many many happy memories.

I will not hesitate to recommend you to other people.

Please convey my appreciation to the other band members.

With sincere thanks and good wishes.
Gary ”

“ We would like to thank Max and The Debonaires for their fantastic music at our wedding on Saturday.
They were so accommodating and even added a new song to their repertoire as I requested Gary Smiths favourite song of Bring Me Sunshine, he was over the moon when he heard it.
So many of our guests were mesmerized by Max and the music, we had lots commenting on how fantastic they were and how lovely it was to have a proper band playing!
Everything was perfect from the initial e-mail to the very end, I can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you so very much x ”
