“I just wanted to thank you and tell you how much my wife (a trad jazz aficionado) and I enjoyed your band’s playing at the wedding […] the weekend before last. You provided the perfect backdrop to the initial sunny reception on the lawn and, later on in the marquee, as the lead-in to the evening’s festivities. Mellow traditional jazz on a sunny afternoon and evening, you can’t beat it!”

John (Wedding, September 2023)

“The Jelly Roll Jazz Band were such a special part of our wedding day! They played us up the aisle at the end of the ceremony, then stayed to perform during our outdoor drinks reception. They were fantastic to work with and sounded wonderful on the day – we absolutely loved having them there, and our guests said the same. Thank you to Michael and the band – we couldn’t have been happier.”

Amy Anderson (Wedding, March 2023)

“Jelly Roll Jazz came all the way to Devon for our belated wedding reception celebrations and they were fantastic! Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the music (as did we) and we couldn’t imagine a more perfect performance than the one done by the band. The guys were very kind and friendly and their performance was very characteristic visually (not just musically). Thanks so much again guys it was fantastic!”

Aishani (Wedding party, March 2022)

“The band played at my dad’s funeral and all our requests were met perfectly and respectfully. The music was great, exactly as dad would have wanted.”

Alison M. (Funeral, October 2021)

“The boys recently played our wedding and we are so so glad that we chose them. They are all three lovely people and they put in an absolute shift, really going above and beyond what we’d asked. Jelly Roll were such a wonderful addition to our day and they thoroughly deserved the absolutely enormous round of applause they got from every single guest on their way out. We’ll absolutely be booking them again for our anniversary parties to come!”

Sophie Whitley (Wedding reception, September 2021)

“Excellent. We have also received many complimentary comments from our guests. Thanks.”

John C. (Private party, July 2019)

“Professional from start to finish. A lovely bunch of lads who played their hearts out and wowed the old and the young. The choice of music was determined by them and was absolutely perfect for the occasion. I would highly recommend.”

Laura Marshall (90th birthday party, May 2019)

“Absolutely fantastic! Very professional, exactly complemented the Great Gatsby vibe and good fun. Very talented musicians and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. They had us all up dancing early doors!”

Fran, Driffield (February 2019)

“Michael and The Jelly Roll Jazz band were fantastic for our DIY country wedding. They played two fabulous sets which really added to the atmosphere of the day. They were professional, prompt and completely hassle free – just what was required. They are a really talented group and we have had so many positive comments from guests about how great they were! Thoroughly recommended- and excellent value for money. Truly memorable.”

Nicholas Harbord (August 2018)

“A HUGE thank you to The Jelly Roll Jazz Band for contributing to what was a very special day for my sister’s wedding. Perfect music, great atmosphere, and to top it all off the sun shone all day! Thanks so much boys, you were a real hit, and I hope to be using your services again in the future!!”

Imogen Bloxham (July 2017)

“The wonderful Jelly Roll Jazz Band played at my husband’s 60th birthday party which took place in our garden on a fabulous Saturday afternoon. We set them up under the gazebo and they absolutely made the day. My husband was unaware there was going to be a band until the three young men appeared. We loved the diversity of the music they played; I bought one of their CDs afterwards which has been heard many times since in our garden. They played for 3 hours with 2 breaks and were well worth their fee. They are very gifted musicians, as well as being lovely young men, who made the party go with a swing and I would definitely book them for our next event as long as they play the Star Wars song for me again!”

Julia and Chris, Darlington (July 2017)

“The Jelly Roll Jazz Band were perfect! As part of a Gatsby themed birthday party, they were the life and soul with an exquisite repertoire. Very attentive and punctual from the first contact. The enormous applause at the end said it all. Highly recommend.”

Carolina Andreoli (Gatsby birthday party) (July 2017)

“This was the Band’s first proper live concert and what a great success it was! My husband and I heard them busking one Saturday in Beverley and were immediately impressed. I subsequently contacted Michael Grant and arranged a date. The concert was in our 600 year old church and they played to an audience of 90 people and kept us entertained for nearly 2 hours with just a short interval. They were fantastic! From the very start, when they marched down the aisle from the back playing ‘When the Saints’ they got everyone’s feet and fingers tapping. Michael who is SO talented played the clarinet – I’m sure he’ll go places and he had a great rapport with the audience was also very pleasant and accommodating when we were finalising fees and times etc. Dan on the banjo and Ben on double bass were both excellent – again two very talented musicians. They were all great and we had a fantastic night and everyone has been full of praise for them and want them back next year. Thank you so much guys!! Hope to see you again.”

Judy Stott (Concert at St. Augustine’s Church, Skirlaugh, Nr. Hull) (April 2017)

“The Band played at the reception for our daughter’s wedding in the unusual setting of Boggle Hole Youth Hostel – well done for making it down the hill! They were perfect for the occasion, with a great choice of lively and well-known tunes, and never dominated the proceedings by being too loud. They are all extremely talented musicians. The vast majority of the wedding party are singers and performers, so are hard to impress, but everyone enjoyed the music and commented on the lovely atmosphere the band created. Very highly recommended to help your event go with a swing! Thank you.”

Sue Rowland (Wedding reception) (October 2016)
