“I cannot express how much we both and our guests absolutely loved the Gatsby’s Jukebox trio, the band and the DJ set. They were excellent at communicating with us during the day and were considerate and non obtrusive.
The music was just brilliant and we couldn’t have asked for a more entertaining, fun and happy time. The children could not stop dancing to every song and there was not one person in the room who was not responding to the music - shoulder dancing, toe tapping, chair dancing :) It was exactly what we wanted if not more and many guests commented on the talent and professionalism of the group.
You all absolutely made our day - The trio during the drinks were just so relaxing and the music was beautiful. The band set was fun and floor filling and the lead singer and trumpet player were just outstanding. Our first dance was done perfectly in their style. The final DJ set had all our favourite party songs with some fun add ins. Thank you so much for making our wedding day so memorable and personable to us. I would highly recommend and would have back in a heartbeat for any future event.
I hope you enjoyed the sets as much as we did. Thank you again Morna and Nick”Morna & Nick - Wedding, De Rougemont Manor, Brentwood
“They were an absolute highlight, getting the perfect balance of music and styles for the mix of ages in our audience and getting everyone on their feet as a result! So many of our guests commented that they were the best band they’d ever seen at a wedding, and they absolutely loved the adaptations in the Gatsby set! Every single member of the band are clearly very talented and able musicians, and they were all great performers. We also really appreciated their flexibility in performing the original Proud Mary for us - seeing a room full of people following the same dance will forever stand out in my mind as one of the most special memories of the day! I also really appreciated how perfect the band’s timing was in making sure they started each performance at the exact time planned which helped keep everything flowing and meant our pre-prepared set lists worked exactly as planned. It may seem a small detail, but it really helped me relax on the day! We will be recommending the band to everyone, and hope we’ll have another occasion to book them in the future!
Thank you also to you Erin for your responsiveness and help in the lead up, you really made the whole process so much easier.”Christina Connolly - Wedding, Lulworth Castle, Dorset

Thanks so much for a brilliant night and I will be sure to get in touch for future events.”Katie - Christmas Party, Warren House
“5/5 - Gatsby’s Jukebox were truly fantastic. The songs they played were wonderful, and were the perfect mix of upbeat and slow. They even played a song we had requested that wasn’t in their repertoire and they played it beautifully!
Gatsby’s Jukebox are such a fun and talented band - we are absolutely thrilled for them to have been part of our wedding day.”Hannah - Wedding, Horsley Towers, Leatherhead
“Great performance, friendly band, flexible to requests, & the staff that helped us make the booking. Overall very good experience.”Sami - Wedding, Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club, East Grinstead
“5/5 Absolutely fantastic. Gatsby’s Jukebox were amazing, true musicians, true talent and such wonderful entertainment. The dance lesson from Katie was wonderful and the whole band were professional at all times. Having the full 6 piece ensemble is well worth the money. All of our guests danced the night away and we are truly impressed by this band.
We would thoroughly recommend them and are very likely to ask them to come back in the future....”Jay Nutkins - Wedding, In The Wood, Caterham
“My sincerest thanks for your contribution to my son Jay's wedding yesterday!! You did such an amazing job. I don't think I have ever been to a wedding where so many people danced for so long. You were a joy to listen to and a pleasure to dance to. The opening song was so beautifully done ... a personal favourite. Jerome Kerr is a genius composer and you did his work great justice.
I am delighted Jay found you and we will not hesitate in recommending you.
Many thanks to you all,
P.S. ..... and I almost learnt to Charlston ???? ... I think the champagne may have hindered my chances of perfection!”Annie Nutkins (mother of the Groom) - In The Wood, Caterham

I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that? Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features the biggest modern dance floor fillers, performed in a classy 1920s Gatsby style.
Do you take requests? We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.
How long do you take to set-up? 60-90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.
What time do you play? At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 90 minutes of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.
How long do you play for? We perform 2 x 45-minute live sets (with the option of adding a third set in an electric rock/pop style) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.
Can you provide music for our drinks reception? Yes, we can provide a briliant instrumental piano set or a jazz trio set - both work brilliantly for drinks receptions or during dinner.
Do you have your own PA and lighting? Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.
What is the website guide price based on? The published guide price is based on our 5-piece line-up option performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Epsom. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that? Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment? Yes.
Will you perform our first dance? Yes, as long as we have two weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.
How much space do you require? We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.
How much power do you require? 2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks? Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.
Can we see you play live before booking? As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
