A few choice words from the hundreds of happy clients we've played for!

-"Dear Steve & The Violet Jive,
A very big THANK YOU for your amazing playing at our wedding back in May. It was everything we hoped for and more. Our friends and family hit the dance floor straight away, were still going when the lights came on and are still raving about how awesome the music was! Thanks so much for taking on board all our ideas for the set list"
-Sal & Ed (Wedding).

-"Hi Steve, Just a note to say thank you so much for Friday night. Absolutely everyone thought you were a marvellous band, and all the guitarists in the room were very impressed! You will always come highly recommended by me. Hopefully I'll manage to get a crowd down to the Grey Lady Music Lounge to see you next time you're there. Thanks again"- Rachel (Birthday Party) .

-"Just a quick thanks to you and the band for a fantastic performance on Sunday! We were so happy with the music and the atmosphere - everybody said that you guys were great and had fun! We're very happy to recommend you to anyone :-)
Thanks again" -Alison + John Mclellan

-"The Violet Jive have played numerous events here at The Spa – from small live music nights in our bar to our huge annual NYE gala dinner. We always receive great feedback from our guests and no matter what the occasion they never fail to get everyone dancing! They are reliable and great value and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to others"
-The Spa Hotel (Tunbridge Wells) .

-"...A huge thank you for Saturday night. You were absolutely brilliant. We have had so many compliments on how great the band were. I haven't had such a good dance in ages. The only disappointment was when it ended! If you could pass our thanks to all the guys who played it would be much appreciated."
Jen Lloyd - Party 2018
