We have also played some lovely events for some lovely people over the last year.  Below are just a few comments we have received recently.



Almonry Barn Wedding


Hi Nick


Firstly my apologies for having not been in touch sooner, Kirsty and I were lucky enough to have a long honeymoon and have only just returned.  We wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you again for playing at our wedding last month - it provided a great background to our drinks reception and many of our guests have commented since on how good you were.

Thank you for all your help ahead of the day too - you were always prompt in your communication, helpful in suggesting the right line up for us, and accommodating to our musical requests. These are all much appreciated when things are getting a bit hectic leading up to the day!

Many thanks again and we wish you and the band all the very best for the future.

Kind regards

Steven and Kirsty



Marquee Wedding - Hilperton, Wiltshire


Hi Nick,  

I just wanted to say thanks to you and the band for the other day.  You guys created a brilliant atmosphere all afternoon and everyone had a great time.  I just wish it hadn't passed so quickly!  



Wedding - The Compleat Angler, Marlow


Hi Nick,

I hope you’re well.

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you for playing at our wedding. So many people came up to us throughout the day and said how fab you were and how perfect it was having you play with everyone out on the lawn. 

I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as well did, it was absolutely perfect.

Thank you so so much. 

Best wishes,





Birthday - River Station, Bristol


Hi Nick,  

Just to say thank you to you & your colleague.  We & all present so enjoyed your music & lovely to meet you.  You contributed so to a very special occasion for me.   

Kind Regards,





Wedding - Hilton, Southampton


F****** superb!!!!  Loved it!  I especially listening out to the horn parts on 'Superstition' and you didn't miss one.  Brilliant!





Babington House Wedding

Thank you for your kind words, Nick. We really had the day of our lives - and from all the lovely letters and cards we're getting, it sounds like everyone else really enjoyed themselves too.

A massive part of the day was you guys. Thank you so much for being brilliant. The the first dance was absolutely ace, and the rest of the set was such brilliant fun.

  See you for our ten year anniversary!

  And until then, all very best wishes,

Nick and Eleanor


Wedding - Cardiff Castle

Dear Nick (and band),

Just a quick email to say many thanks for your fantastic performance at our wedding at Cardiff Castle on the 12 October 2013. We had a brilliant day and your band finished it off perfectly.

All of our guests commented on the high standard of your music and the selection of songs that were delivered. Melanie and I are particularly thankful that you were able to provide us with a steady 'Moon River' for our first Waltz.

I do hope that we get the chance to see you perform again. 

Thank you again,

Best Wishes,

Andrew and Melanie

21st Birthday - Marquee – Chewton Mendip


Dear Nick

Where to start!

Thank you so very much for making my 21st a night to remember.  I have heard nothing but compliments about The Hipcats!

The music you played created such a fantastic atmosphere, until my heart nearly stopped when I thought I was sitting down for dinner when I suddenly got hoisted up to dance to Mambo No. Jessica!  In hindsight this was the highlight of my night!  A big thank you for playing Glenn Miller’s ‘In the Mood; we all very much enjoyed it!

Who needs a DJ and Disco when you have The Hipcats …. If you ever find yourself free and bored you are more than welcome to come back and sing for me.  A huge thank you to yourself and all your band, I could not have asked for more perfection.

I hope you all have a very Happy Christmas and New Year!

With love




Hotel du Vin – Bristol


Hi Nick

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for Friday night.  Everyone has told me how great the band was, and from what I can work out the evening ran smoothly!  I was a little worse for wear by that point, but what I can remember sounded great!  The whole experience of dealing with you has been a pleasure, so thanks for everything.


All the best,
