Terina and Andrew, Hazlewood Castle (www.hazlewood-castle.co.uk), September 2016
What a band! My daughter Caroline saw The Nightjars at a wedding in Yorkshire. When we arranged her wedding she was insistent that was the band she wanted. The only problem was that the wedding was at The Merchant Taylors' Hall in the City of London. Nevertheless the The Nightjars agreed to come South and play and were sensational. We have seen many bands at functions and events and we would go as far as to say that this is the best band we have ever heard. Nothing was too much trouble and the band's enthusiasm was infectious. Our guests never seemed to be off the dance floor and as one friend said “I didn’t want to leave the dance floor, I was too excited to know what the next number was”. Thank you all so much for making a special day in a special place so special.
Derek & Lynda, parents-of-the-bride, Merchant Taylors' Hall (http://www.mtaylorsevents.co.uk/), London, September 2016
Wow - words simply cannot do The Nightjars justice. From start to finish they were incredibly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The set list was amazing, the band's never-ending energy was infectious and people were dancing all night. A friend described the tunes as “all killers and no fillers!” It is now four weeks later and people are still telling me they were the best band they have ever seen perform. They even learnt our last dance for us which made it all the more special. I can’t recommend this band highly enough, the organisation was seamless and stress free and they literally made our night so much more than we ever could have wished for.
Caroline & Neil, Merchant Taylors' Hall (http://www.mtaylorsevents.co.uk/), London, September 2016
Thanks so much for your fabulousness on Saturday night. The music from The Nightjars was excellent and the effort and enthusiasm you all put into your performance was hugely appreciated. We've had loads of friends congratulate us on choosing such a brilliant band!
Anna & Gareth, Christian's Cafe (www.christianscafe.co.uk), Harrogate, September 2016
Thank you so much for the party such a huge success. The Nightjars really made the evening. More than that your input in organising the timing of the evening made everything flow efficiently and easily. Thank you too for sorting out the uplighters and star cloth backdrop. They made a huge difference to the atmosphere of the room. People loved your quieter live-lounge music played through the meal and then the selection of dance music was ideal for a mixed crowd. Thank you for such a polished, professional performance and your kind and helpful suggestions in the planning stages. We really could not have found a better band.
Carmel & Phil, private party, Sun Pavilion (www.hicyorkshire.co.uk/about-hic/sun-pavilion), Harrogate, August 2016
