This band are incredible! We were on the hunt for a wedding band and these guys fit the profile perfectly for our day and our guests. We got married in Ibiza and organised for them to join us out there - the organisation went without any issues. They played a gorgeous set whilst our guests were settling into the evening. Then they sang our first dance which was magical. From then on they picked the most superb selection of songs which had EVERYONE on the dance floor - no matter your tastes, these guys rocked! We had so many of our guests complimenting their performance and asking to book them for other events. If we ever need a band for anything we will definitely book them again!

Hi Chris, I just wanted to send you a few words of thanks to pass on to The Skip Jacks. It's two weeks since the wedding and I'm still hearing from people about how brilliant they were. I know they stepped in at relatively short notice but no one guessed. In fact, my now brother-in-law managed to have a 5 minute practice with them during the speeches, so he could sing Hallelujah with them for my wife and I. Really, they were very kind to let him do that and to play a few extra songs when the crowd were begging them not to stop at the end. I'll be selling them to every fiancé I know for a long while, in the selfish hope that I'll see them play again. - All the best, Brett - London, 6th August 2016

Hi Andy, Could you please pass on, that Alex and I would like to say a massive thank you to the band for the amazing entertainment they gave us and our guests at our wedding on Saturday. We have had so many compliments. Especially about the rapping! Thanks again, George and Alex Married 14th July 2017
Hi Andy, Good morning, apologies it has taken so long but since we got back from our honeymoon I have been tied up pretty much every day, this is my first set of real days off as it were. It is however really important to Laura and myself that you express our gratitude to the band for their performance at our wedding reception back in July. The band were truly exceptional and everyone at the wedding was asking after them, we seriously could not have asked for any more...their youtube videos were great but if anything we felt they were better live. I can only apologise that we didn't get to speak with them after their set ended, we wish we had managed to get to thank them personally but it was all a bit of a blur at the end. The music the band performed was just perfect, we had a real mix of ages there and everone was impressed and catered for. The day was rounded off perfectly and I was personally dancing my ass off...I am glad the photographer left when she did or there may have been more evidence of that. heh heh! Anyway we would really appreciate it if you could pass our appreciation on to the band, and we would be more than happy to add our feedback should you have anywhere we can upload it? Thanks again and Kindest Regards for making our special day so special. Tim and Laura Collins - Married 29th July 2017

We wanted to say a huge HUGE thank you to the band, who were absolutely amazing at our wedding!!!! We had so many people comment on how brilliant they were and the dance floor was absolutely packed! We had the best time!! Please please pass on our thank yous to them - they made the whole evening extra special. All the best, Fran and Mike - Wedding 11th August 2017
We would just like to say a massive thank you for your performance at our wedding at the Wetland Centre. We have had a lot of positive feedback about your singing and playing. The choice of songs was exactly as we’d hoped and you performed them brilliantly. We really appreciated how you tailored both the content and volume to the party atmosphere as it allowed our guests to listen or chat as they wished. A special thank you for learning ‘Better Together’ so that we could match our steps to it, down to the last beat! Wishing you every success in the future, Rachel and Cliff
