As soon as we found then we knew we'd struck gold
"Live music was hugely important to us when planning our wedding. As soon as we found Down for the Count we knew we'd struck gold. Mike was amazing, finding a way to incorporate everything we wanted - including custom orchestrations and the roaming trio! The live music created a backdrop for the emotions of a perfect day.Sent on 26/06/2020
The performance of 'Stand by Me' by Crawford in the church was incredibly moving and set the tone for a beautiful service. Our dear friend Fiona accompanied by the band had the bride in tears, while the incredible Hannah and the roaming trio at the reception got everyone in the party mood.
The evening band had everyone on the dance floor all night, we didn't want it to end! We had so many compliments from our guests about the band. Mike and the band made our day so special and we couldn't recommend them highly enough. Just like our first dance, Down for the Count created "Something Beautiful" for our wedding!"

Thank you so much for your amazing music and energy when you performed at our wedding in Norfolk in December. We loved the music and everyone commented on how great you all were. As you could probably tell, our friends and family love a good party and we loved that the dance floor was packed all night long!
All our love"

You made our day come to life
"Dear Mike, Just wanted to say a huge, huge thank you to you and your incredible band that made our day come to life. We loved all the music - as you know, it was some guests' favourite part of the wedding!! I say - fair enough! Down for the Count were definitely a highlight for us as well and the sounds of the string quartet playing the first strains of the Beatitudes and that epic finale and encore from the full band will stay with me forever.Sent on 26/06/2020
Working with you was an absolute pleasure and I look forward to seeing you soon at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club with Grandpa in tow! "
