The Yorkshire Dixieland Band - Dixieland Jazz Band Feedback

Thank you so much! The band were fantastic! They were punctual, immaculately turned out and brilliant. They were more than happy to adapt to our function as required in terms of where they stood, the tone, the mood and the volume. Every member of the band looked happy to be there and they were very respectful and courteous. We have previously been entertained by the same band and they were even better than last time! We had a violinist at the same function with a spontaneous jazz/violin jamming session! So entertaining and uplifting, would definitely recommend for any event. Thank you so much to Alan and the band!

I just wanted to thank you again so very much for coming yesterday and helping to complete what was an incredible, happy and emotional day for everyone. Please pass on our sincere thanks to your fellow performers. It was a pleasure to meet you all - you were fantastic! Many many thanks again.

Following a huge achievement of winning a prestigious industry award, we arranged for a secret day of celebrations for our 100 employees at our offices. We arranged for the jazz band to kick off the celebrations by entering our office playing the most energetic and uplifting music which was a wonderful surprise to staff who eagerly jumped up out of their seats to follow the marching band and dance their way around the office. The place was 'buzzing' everyone LOVED it. We had numerous surprises for everyone but the band was by far the highlight and what people remember the most about the day. They are fantastic. You can't help but get up on your feet and dance along. We will definitely be hiring them again for future events - we can't wait for them to play for us again!

Excellent, professional and reliable. An enjoyable evening for all of our guests.

Thanks so much for yesterday. Mum had a great time and thought you were brilliant. We all enjoyed your music and hope to book you for a spring/summer party in 2018.

I new nothing of this band, only that I'd left it very late to book so had no other choices! All my dealings with Alan were clear, helpful and very obliging. Nothing was too much trouble, from the type of music, number of musicians, outfits, length of playing time/breaks. They arrived in the Cotswolds from Yorkshire early, set up effortlessly, liased with the disco jockey and started playing just before the guests arrived. WOW!! Without exception, everyone danced. They set the whole party alight. How lucky were we to stumble across their website. Use them, listen to them! They're fantastic!!!

We hired the band for our barge party on the river at Leeds. The band were a great addition to our river trip and everyone enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere they created.

Hello chaps, this is Phil Peake. You played at my mother-in-law's party today. From Ann, my wife Linda and I and all our family and friends, we wanted to say a huge thank you for your services. You did great and Ann really enjoyed it. As did my dog Boo, who appears to have taken to you all!! Anyway, I have added four images that I have had time to do a quick edit on. Feel free to use them if you think any of them will work for you.

Last week was marvellous. In fact the weather was so nice the marquee ended up being c90 degrees and the chocolate starting to seriously melt! The band were great and did exactly as we had asked. They were no trouble at all and I would certainly use them again.

Thank you so much for playing at my Dad's 90th Birthday on the boat last Saturday. The music was fantastic and you looked the part too, really complemented the boat setting and pulled the evening together! My Dad was very pleased, said you were perfect and exactly what he wanted, couldn't have improved on it at all, so thank you very much! And thanks for the Happy Birthday tune too, worked really well!

Rebecca Robinson, On the River Prince York, (July, 2017)

Thanks for your brilliant appearance at Market Wheaton for Giant Community Day. Your band was superb! I'll send some pics. You all looked and played great! Do hope we can work together in the future.

The band supported the county wide Yorkshire Day Celebration in Halifax on Monday 1 August 2016. The band were extremely well dressed, very pleasant. Easy to liaise with. Played as arranged and were flexible during the time they were with us. People enjoyed their music. I would definitely book the band again.
