We (and all of our guests) LOVED this band!

Daniel and his London Swing & Soul Band played at our wedding last August. We spent absolutely ages looking for the right band, and we were losing heart, until we saw this band in action. Simply awesome. The most amazing repertoire, which was great for us because our guests ranged from 4 to 84, and there was something for everyone, even traditional Jewish wedding dances (which we wanted even though our wedding was not religious in any way). Daniel supplied a jazz trio for the daytime (which was excellent), he played keyboard during the actual ceremony (and it was beautiful), then we opted for an 8 piece band for the reception, which was fabulous. So many of our guests commented afterwards about how much they loved our band. Three of our guests are professional musicians themselves, one teaches at the Royal Academy of Music, and one is musical director for the Ritz hotel in London, and they both said the band was fantastic. PLUS ours was a same-sex wedding, and it was important for us to feel comfortable with everyone involved. Daniel is really lovely, and it was a pleasure to have him (and his band) be such a big part of our perfect day. Thanks Daniel and The London Swing & Soul Band - absolutely, unreservedly recommended, we could not possibly fault you in any way, Sarah & Sabina xx

HUGE thank you

"Hi Daniel, Gaby, Harrison & the rest of the incredible band

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for performing at our wedding!!!! You are honestly the best wedding band we have ever seen!!! Everyone has been raving about you ever since!!! I am already trying to get you lined up for my friends wedding, thank you for taking the time to prepare with Lizzie for our first dance and for performing The Seed with Alex, Adrian was so chuffed that you reserved Blue Train until he was there. He was also so grateful to Harrison for twinkling away when there was no obligation to and finally to all of you guys for genuinely looking like you had a great time too.

We will definitely be coming to see you guys play in the future."
