Phenomenal Musicians!

Hey gents – I  just wanted to say from me, also that you all truly ran the evening. All phenomenal musicians and you played so well off each other and the audience! So happy to have everyone dancing all the way through the sets.

I had a little concern about having a band with so many dominant instruments in the room of the size that it could have ended up a bit of money if the players weren’t top-notch – so a testament to you all that every part was crystal clear, And Vocals were sensational. The energy was unmatched.


Thanks again, you guys you made the evening what it was.

Truly Magical

It’s difficult to put into words the impact Frankly Jazz had on the day of our wedding. Professional, smart and true masters of their respective instruments – they rolled with the flow of the audience and had literally everyone dancing from kids to the oldies. It’s hard to know how a band will sound or work in the room you have when booking a wedding, but I assure you Frankly Jazz will negate any worries and exceed all expectations. Each giving the others space to roll with a solo when they feel like it made for some truly magical moments. Thank you Frankly Jazz – I hope we cross paths again.

Hi Marcus, just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you. I have looked on your website to leave a comment but couldn’t see how to do it hence the email. Massive thank you for playing at our wedding last weekend. We knew you would be amazing but the feedback from our guests was more than we expected. Everybody thought that Frankly Jazz set just the right tone throughout the day & the evening. Pass on our thanks to the other guys and the loan of the lights was much appreciated. Many thanks again

Blown Away

Marcus and the team at Frankly Jazz were absolutely fantastic! You guys helped make our 1920’s themed wedding so special.

we were blown away by the quality and showmanship of the band and can’t thank you enough for performing on our wedding day.

If you’re looking to hire a band for a wedding or any other type of event, I can fully recommend these guys you will not be disappointed.

Incredible Performance

We hired Frankly Jazz through High Row Music for
our wedding in October 2022 and they were absolutely outstanding! They played two incredible sets during the night including our first dance which was really special. So many of our guests have commented on how brilliant they were and how they wouldn’t normally be on the dance floor but with this band they just couldn’t resist. They put on an incredible performance with loads of energy from start to finish! They were professional, engaging and so slick. Marcus at High Row was great to deal with throughout the booking process, super responsive and easy to talk to. The whole process was really chilled. Can’t recommend Frankly Jazz enough. We’ll be trying to see them again over Christmas!

Saatchi and Saatchi

Just an email to say a MASSIVE THANKYOU!!! for yesterday, you guys were absolutely amazing!! You sounded awesome and really added the last part of perfection to our already wonderful day. We were so sorry we didn’t get to say goodbye so just wanted to let you know how very thankful we were for playing for us on our big day. The guests were absolutely stunned by you all and we have had countless comments about how much they enjoyed listening and dancing along to the music, even the hotel staff commented on that they thought it was one of the nicest weddings they have ever held there.
