  • Deborah Meaden (Dragon's Den)

    You and your band were fantastic, not just brilliant at the music but also lovely, helpful and a total pleasure to work with. You were exceptional.

  • Gary and Geri

    They were smart, savvy and had the room rocking from the first note played. They listened when we discussed genres and delivered in spades. We were running late and they adapted to our timetable, never missing a beat. They gave us more than we could have expected and our guests from 21 to 86 were all dancing. My wife and I cannot praise them highly enough. The mixture of Standards, Pop, Motown, Swing and Rock and Roll was fabulous. At the end our guests were shouting for more!!

  • Hannah and George

    Down for the Count were utterly superb, from first recommendation to delivery on the night. They have a slick presence, flawless sound and impeccable communication. They made our night truly magical and we cannot recommend them highly enough

  • Sarah-Jane Holt

    What a great night we had! Down For The Count were absolutely amazing and Jacqueline has asked me to pass on her personal thanks, and thanks from the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel, for the band’s incredible performance that kept the dance floor filled until the very end. Thank you so much.

  • Emily and Chris Rogers

    We just wanted to thank you all for your amazing performance at our wedding this Sunday, you were truly fantastic! We have received so many compliments from our guests and from the venue too! You set the tone for a fantastic celebration and we can’t thank you enough. You are booked to play at a wedding of a friend of ours this August, so we can’t wait to see you again then!
