An excitingly creative addition to the label.
Johanna and her band played a fantastic laid-back jazz set at our wedding. We'd also arranged for them to play our first dance song, which made it even more special. A lot of our guests said that they really enjoyed the music, and the relaxed funky atmosphere Johanna and her band created was exactly what we had hoped for. We'd highly recommend Johanna and her band if you are looking for music for your wedding.
I had the lovely duo at my wedding recently and Johanna and her amazing jazz guitarist simply made our day. Johanna has such a lovely voice, and the guitar added an atmosphere an ordinary band wouldn't give. I couldn't recommend them highly enough, both for their professionalism and the amazing atmosphere and music they bring to a wedding. If you want something that little bit special then these guys are the way to go. I only wish I'd gone for the full band! They've given me some lovely memories.
We were delighted to welcome Johanna and her band to the Tresanton for a small private party, and they were perfect for the occasion and the intimate nature and setting of our hotel. Very friendly and professional and accommodating, with smooth sounds and a great ambience. We are looking forward to the trio playing again and have already booked more events.
We only arrived back from our honeymoon yesterday so haven't had time to email you. We would both like to thank you and your trio of musicians for the performance at our wedding. It was wonderful and ended a perfect day superbly. So many people were impressed by your performance and guests are still talking about it now. You have a fantastic voice and the guys that backed you up were fab to, we're so glad we picked you for our special day.

We just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for the music on our wedding night. Everyone loved the band and the music was just perfect for the atmosphere we wanted to create on our wedding day. You played our first dance song amazingly and it was so sweet of you to dedicate a Norah Jones song to me. Thank you so much again.
