What people say about us

Wedding Sam and George at Chateau St Paul

Dear George.

What an absolutely fantastic wedding which was completed by having the Hicksville swing band present. You guys absolutely put the cream on the cake and made our day perfect.

Your wandering set was so great and really started our wedding reception off perfectly.

The evening music was spot on, you guys were so kind in learning a new song for our first dance, but then kept the crowd dancing and enjoying with every note.

Thank you also for letting me jam with you guys towards the end of the night!

I couldn’t have asked for more and many of the guests said how great you were also.

“Having a great band play at our wedding was a must have!  We wanted a talented band that could play a variety of music and deliver a high quality of sound.  Hicksville Swing was able to deliver on this and more.  Not only are they some of the most talented musicians that we have had the pleasure of listening to, but, they are all also absolute gentleman.  They made extra effort to accommodate all of our requirements and were fantastic in helping to look after our guests who all thought Hicksville Swing were fantastic.  I couldn’t recommend them enough to anyone looking for a  highly skilled group.”


Thanks again George,
Ben and Ali

Seb and I had a fabulous time at http://www.chateaurigaud.co.uk – our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without Hicksville Swing!  We penned a few words for your website below, but to be honest, it’s difficult to do you guys justice.  You were everything that we could have hoped for and more!

“It was a privilege to have George and Hicksville Swing play at our wedding.  Their music was interwoven throughout the day showcasing their variety and versatility of repertoire and style.  We selected some traditional instrumental pieces for the church, followed by a rat pack inspired walking quartet during the champagne reception, and an energetic crowd-pleasing set for after-dinner dancing.  The strolling quartet received particularly good reviews from our guests, adding a novel entertainment factor to our reception and building an incredible atmosphere.  Throughout the planning stages, George could not have been more helpful and accommodating to our music requests.  On the day, his intuition of the crowd’s mood was exceptional, and kept the dance floor busy until the early hours.  Booking Hicksville Swing was one of the best decisions that we made.  We couldn’t recommend the band more highly.  First rate and five star!

Best of luck with the rest of the wedding season, and we look forward to booking you again for the anniversary tour!”
