Just a few lines to send my thanks for arranging for Jamie and The First Class to play at our Conference last Friday. They were absolutely brilliant and really set the Conference jumping and indeed set the atmosphere for the whole event. They were the right choice for the Conference, from the first note to the last, they had the delegates on the floor from the word go. Please pass on my sincere thanks

Dear Harriet, Jamie, Stuart and the team
Thank you so much for performing at Abbie and James’s wedding. You were all simply amazing and you made the party go with a swing. Everybody has mentioned in their letters the wonderful band and you were just fantastic. Dancing all night long. Thank you for agreeing to play and in such a gracious way.  We hope you will play again for us if we have another do? Good luck with all your events and would love to know when you are in the North again.

Hi Jamie, Harriet, Stuart, Ben and Mike! Thank you all so much for being a part of our Christmas Party!  Wow, what a night we all had! I had told everyone how amazing you would all be, and the feedback was all about how much they loved you performing! The staff at the venue also commented on how fab you all were, so I’m sure you are on their list of bands to book! I’m still aching from all the mad dancing, but that’s just a sign of a good night lol! 😉 Thank you from all of us at Nokia UK! We wish you all wonderful and Merry Christmas, and here’s to an amazing 2014.

“I have seen Jamie and his bands perform on a number of different occasions (having recommended him for friend’s celebrations) and used him at my own daughter’s wedding. Jamie never fails to get the audience up and dancing. He has always been reliable, turning up as arranged and being set up and ready to rock and roll in good time. He is a great front man with masses of enthusiasm and always sensitive to the needs of the audience. I would strongly recommend him and the band for any big event.” Mark Irwing, various events between 2007 – 2012

Thank you for making the Summer Party at Danehill so enjoyable. There wasn’t one person who didn’t enjoy your sound, old and young. You were all fantastic. Good luck with all your future work, you sound as though you’re very busy. Love and Thanks again, Vanessa & Mike 2011

Just back from our honeymoon and wanted to thank you and the band again for making our wedding night at South Lodge so amazing, you guys are a class act. Jamie & Kerry, 2011

Taken from Your Surrey Wedding Magazine for ‘The Wedding of the year’ “Our favourite part of the day was our first dance. We had a live band called Jamie & the 1st Class who were absolutely brilliant. We couldn’t choose between 2 songs so they sang both! We went with Wherever you Will Go by The Calling & Good Riddance (Time of your life) by Green Day. We were very lucky to have such a perfect day”
Victoria Clegg and Ryan Salt, at Albury Park, 2010

When searching on the internet for a band for our wedding ‘Jamie & the First Class’ were miles ahead of anyone when listening to their demos. Without a doubt they sound even better live and rocked the whole night away with everyone getting up on the dance floor. We had so many comments afterwards as to how good the band were and what a fantastic end to a great day. Ian & Melissa Clarke, 2010

Thank you so much for giving us such a fantastic night. All the guests loved you & keep telling us how great you are. Thank you for learning the other songs for us. I’ve never seen a dance floor packed like that before! Donna & Des Taplow House Hotel, 2010

Huge thanks for an absolutely fantastic performance at our wedding. You provided just the right atmosphere for the day and everyone had a brilliant time boogie-ing away to their songs. I think there were quite a few of us who danced to every single one of them & enjoyed them all immensely! One of my favourite memories of the whole day was dancing euphorically with a huge smile on my face to one of the final songs; I was looking around the packed dance floor at all my friends who were dancing equally euphorically with huge smiles on their faces and thinking ‘it doesn’t get better than this!’. So many people have said to me how brilliant they thought the band were and I will certainly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a band in the future. Anna Da Costa, 2010

They were truly amazing. Jamie’s vocals were sublime and quite frankly I couldn’t take my eyes off him all night. They played songs that appealed to all ages and really got the party started. They were so professional from start to finish and all my guests were very impressed. Lesley Coyle, Wedding, Formby Hall Golf Club, 2006

A huge thank you from the entire family you were absolutely fantastic! We had a great day and the music was out of this world. You had everyone on the dancefloor all night. Everyone has commented on how good the band was and asked for your details! We wanted to say thank you for an amazing night’s entertainment. All the very Best Errmal & Kate, Royal Berkshire Hotel, Ascot, June 2009
