  • Jane & Danny

    The wedding ceremony took place at The Temple of Minerva in the Botanical Gardens, Victoria Park Bath and The Severn Jazzmen were ready to strike up as the ceremony finished. They lead the guests from the Temple to the Marquee and then provided background music either during the drinks reception and the wedding breakfast.

    We were delighted with the performance! The band set exactly the right tone for day! Thanks very much guys.

  • Karen Hassall

    The Severn Jazzmen were excellent. I wanted specifically New Orleans Jazz at my wedding for the evening reception instead of the ubiquitous disco and they were perfect. The music created a relaxed and fun atmosphere. I do hope there was enough food for the band as I booked for 4 musicians and provided enough food for 4 as per the contract, but 5 musicians turned up on the day, which I was not expecting. Many many thanks.

  • Damian Davies

    Just a note to thank you so much for playing at the wedding on Saturday, as the guests were welcomed in. The performance really set us up for a great day and we had so much good feedback from the guests on the band. Good luck with your next gigs, and thanks again from both of us.
