The Dave Hankin Small Big Band has earned a solid reputation as a versatile wedding band which has resulted in many repeat bookings

Here is a selection of thank you letters we have received when we have performed in concert, music festivals and at wedding receptions

Dear Dave and band members,

Please accept our sincerest thanks for playing at our wedding at Cadhay on 14th July. They say the entertainment can make or break a wedding and you certainly made ours. Your professionalism and talent shone through from the start ~ what a truly fabulous sound.

We absolutely loved dancing our first dance to Sing, Sing, Sing and very much appreciate the effort you went to in providing us with a demo so that we could practice our routine in the months leading up to the wedding. It most definetly got everyone 'in the mood' and your wonderful playlist ensured that the dance floor was always full. You should know that many compliments were paid to you all on the night and we have had more since, with some of the guests telling us that this was the first time they had danced at a wedding for many years!

Once again, thank you so very much for making our wedding extra special -we only wish we could do it all over again!

With very best wishes

Catharine and Simon, Surrey

We would just like to thank you for the amazing performance you gave at our evening wedding reception. We enjoyed every minute and would just like to thank you for being part of our special day.

Superb instrumentation and orchestration continued all evening and the blending of reeds and brass was exceptional.

Whether played with dynamism or soft, melodic feeling, the arrangements of these tunes, old and new, you felt couldn't be bettered...

...I really felt the Dave Hankin Band could not be excelled.

Dear Dave,

Thank you all so much for making our wedding day so perfect.

From our first contact, up to you playing “New York New York”, your professionalism and ability was obviously visible. And we were so happy that we had you as our band.

Wishing you every success for the future.
