5th April 2014 - Ladywood Estate, Knossington, Leicestershire
A huge thank you for playing at our wedding at Ladywood Estate in April. The band was incredible and Allan and I were over the moon with the reception you received. Our main wish was that everyone got up and danced, and your expertise and professionalism ensured this happened. We had the most wonderful day and your music added to its specialness. We wish you all the best and thank you once again.
Best wishes, T & A –

Thank you and your band so much for giving us such a wonderful evening. The music exceeded even my expectations, you were excellent. We could not have asked for anything better. You created a warm and fun atmosphere, maybe a slight pun there as it was a very hot evening ! Dave and I just loved it. You got people up and dancing with such ease and the variety of dances and different music was perfect. I enjoyed the wedding party far more than I thought I would, thanks to you . So many people said to us how they enjoyed your music and dances.
You were so helpful with the booking and organizing as well .
Got to say worth every penny.
Many, many thanks

To Jigabit Band –
Please convey our heartfelt thanks for helping to make our Golden Wedding Anniversary celebrations memorable. The quality of the music was excellent and the Caller, Bob, was patient and fun. What a laugh we had.
I was concerned due to us having three distinct groups of guests – family, neighbours and church friends, but the music and dancing “gelled” everyone into having fun and a great night.
Rosemary and Tony Taylor
P.S. I would be pleased to recommend your band any time – telephone 01159 537598
Many thanks to you and your band for helping to make my 40th birthday celebrations so special - everybody said how much they enjoyed your music and the banter from your caller! I will never forget little Henry aged 4 dancing every dance and smiling so much! Thanks for accommodating old and young and being flexible with songs and dances.
Thanks once again.
With best wishes
How very kind of you to send me these photos of the ceilidh, they’re great.
I really did enjoy myself, I loved every minute! Everything was exactly as I had wanted. You guys were brilliant and contributed hugely to creating a fun atmosphere, I have also received many compliments about you, so be encouraged!
Thank you again.

A quick email just to say thanks soooo much for Saturday, we had a fab time & had loads of guests say you were the best wedding band they had seen! We have a couple of engaged friends so we are hoping they will book you so we get chance to party with you again xx March 2012
Thank you for all your help and advice throughout the whole booking process. I was expecting booking a band to be really hard work but you have made it very easy. We are really looking forward to our ceilidh now.
Robert – 18 Feb 2012
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you for the massive contribution you made to making our wedding day so special. The ceilidh at Pear's Hall, Repton, was absolutely fantastic and really got everyone dancing. Lots of people who had never been to a barn dance or ceilidh before said how much fun it was!
Emma and Drew
A big thank you to the whole of the JIgabit band for the fantastic evening we had. The music was just what we were hoping for and you do such a great job of encouraging the dancing along. So many of our friends said how much they enjoyed the dancing (even those who don't normally dance!) It made Steve's and my evening so special having such a great band playing for us.
Thank you so much.
With our best wishes

I must say a HUGE thank you to you and the boys. What a night it was! All of our ‘regulars’ who had been before were so pleased it was the same format as previous years, but the newcomers couldn’t believe what they heard and saw!
They were in awe of the band, some of the older generation, I think were expecting a little bit of light music in the back ground, but when you struck up, WOW, they just couldn’t get over how good you were....we know how good you were and are, that is why we had you back again!
I hope you and the boys enjoyed yourselves as much as we all did. Here’s to the next time!
With love to you all,
Elaine xx June 2011
Just to say I have had sooo much good feedback about the barn dance (50th on 30th April) You have had so many compliments! Must be nice to know you bring pleasure to so many with your music and Bob's banter! Thanks again.
Just wanted to say thanks very much to you and your band for helping to make last Saturday a wonderful celebration for Steve and Sally. We have had some amazing feedback from guests who had a great time. We would certainly contact you again if a suitable occasion arises.
Even the non-dancing groom says he wouldn't have changed anything!
Jigabit made a huge contribution to the success of a ceilidh recently that had been arranged as a birthday surprise for my wife. What great audience-pleasers they are! With their musical versatility, calling and entertainment skills they brought some enjoyment to everyone at the party, enticing people onto the dance floor whatever their level of dancing experience. In the intervals, they played some favourite songs and accompanied the ‘ceremonial’ parts of a ‘big birthday’ celebration with warmth and humour. Good on yer, Jigabit!

A huge thank you for Jigabit for making our Ladies' night even more memorable. Your uncanny ability to sense the mood of the audience meant that you expertly mixed and matched the music to suit the fitness and enthusiasm of the audience.
Many of those in attendance have subsequently contacted me (which is a most unusual occurence) to say how much they enjoyed the entertainment Jigabit provided.
Rest assured should I have occasion in the future to be involved in organising a similar event I will be straight on the phone to you and will have no hesitation in recommending you to others should they be looking for a Band to make their event equally memorable.

Dear Fiona -
Well, what can I say to express how much Ian and I enjoyed
our Wedding Reception? The evening's entertainment was excellent - everyone
said how much they enjoyed your playing. "Best Wedding Reception ever" is
one of the many comments that springs to mind - and that was after they had
sobered up! We booked you for our Wedding "sound unheard" but now
we have heard what you can do, we would have no hesitation in recommending
you to other people. When I initially spoke to you on the 'phone, you were
confident that you could provide what I wanted - that you certainly did.
Thank you for helping to make our day so memorable. Please could you also
pass on my thanks to the other musician and Bob the Caller. Everyone thought
Bob was wonderful. He may not realise his achievement, but he had people
up on that dance floor who had never danced in their lives and who will probably
never dance again. They might have been reluctant at first, but once up,
they stayed up, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I hope we will be able
to think of an excuse to enjoy your company again in the not too distant
Thank you again.
Yours sincerely F.W.
I just wanted to write a short letter to you and your band
to say thank you very much indeed for playing at our Ball on Saturday night.
Everyone had a wonderful time and I think the Ceilidh turned out to be one
of the most popular events. I managed to take a bit of time off from running
around and had a good knees-up, which I thoroughly enjoyed..... Thank you

Just writing to express our thanks to you and the band
for your part in our wedding day. We had a wonderful day and both thought
the band was superb. You had the right mix of background music and “persuasion” – several “first-timers” (ceilidh
dancers) commented on what fun a ceilidh can be. Your Caller, Bob, was excellent,
and the whole performance was very professional. Should the occasion arise,
we will be in touch! Thanks again. J & R
Seven weeks have passed since P. and I were married and I didn't
want another week to go by without sending you and your colleagues our very
great thanks. We had a lovely time on the evening of 29th June at the Midland
Hotel. The skill of the band, coupled with their warmth and humour, is a
great combination. You were much admired. Having enjoyed listening to you,
P and I were wondering if you do many gigs outside the realm of weddings
because we would love to come and hear you play elsewhere... Again thanks
for playing such a large and successful part in our special day.
good wish, S&P W.
I would like to say a big thank you to you and your fellow band members
for such an excellent barn dance at our wedding at the Dormy House Hotel. Stephen and I and our guests (judging from the numbers on
the dance floor), thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Despite a number of drinks
on our part, your Caller's clear instructions and your wise choice of dances
enabled even us to follow the steps! It was great fun. I wouldn't hesitate
to recommend your services to any other couple looking for an entertaining
evening which appeals to all ages.
Thank you again. Best wishes, K.C.
Just a quick note to thank you and other others who played
at our Wedding. Everyone enjoyed themselves and although a few were a little
wary of the prospect of a Barn Dance, no one has stopped talking about it
since, and the Video is hilarious! Thanks again for helping make our day
so special and memorable. I am sure you will pass on our thanks to the others.
I will be sure to recommend you to anyone wanting a fantastic party to remember!
Dear Fiona and the rest of the band
the evening; it was the first experience of an English Barn Dance for the
French people there. Isabelle's brother thought it was really brilliant!.
Thanks again. Best wishes - P.&I.H. P.S. We thought your Caller was
The Wedding was a wonderful occasion - We really appreciated the very important
part the Band played in making the evening celebration such a success.
We have had many positive comments about the music and I think the amount
of dancing that was done said it all. We wouldn't believe how quickly the
time went and were so sorry when it was all over! So our very sincere thanks
to you and the others for your expertise and enthusiasm. I'd be more than
happy to dance to your band again!
With best wishes, Yours sincerely, M.D.
We are writing to say a huge Thank You for playing at our Wedding Reception
at Stanford Hall. We have received many comments from our friends and family
saying how much they enjoyed the evening's entertainment; a lot of our guests
had not experienced a Ceilidh before, and they had a wonderful time. The
excellent music and good humour of you and your associates on such a beautiful
evening created the perfect atmosphere for the evening's celebration. Thank
you once again for your services and for adding to the memories of our very
A. & T.R.
Many thanks for your wonderful entertainment on Friday at Newstead Abbey.
Everyone enjoyed the Barn Dance immensely - compliments have been coming
thick and fast! Your Caller was wonderful too, and was a great hit with
us all. My daughter wishes to book you again for her 5th, 10th and 25th
Anniversary! We shall see!! Once again, many thanks.
Yours – J.W.
It's a bit delayed, but we wanted to write and thank you for playing at
our Wedding on Friday 28th July at Bestwood Lodge. It was the perfect ending
to a perfect day, and we both thought your rendition of Moondance was absolutely
wonderful! We'll definitely be recommending you to anyone looking! Thanks
again. C & D.G.
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding reception at Stragglethorpe
hall on April 7th. We had such a wonderful time, due in no small part to
you and your super band! The dance floor never seemed to be empty and there
was never a shortage of volunteers. It was exactly what we were looking for
- a really good band who ensured everyone had a great time. Please pass on
our thanks to all of your "team", especially the Caller who was
excellent! By the end of it, we were quite sorry to leave! We have received
lots of thanks from our guests who really enjoyed joining in the dancing!
We shall certainly recommend you to others. Thanks again.
Love from E & M.B
Sorry it has taken so long but I just wanted to drop you a line
to thank you for last Saturday. It is a long time since I attended a function
where absolutely everyone, young and old was quite so enthusiastic about their
evening's entertainment. You created a wonderful atmosphere for the evening
and I thank you for that. It was a perfect end to a perfect day to see
so many people having a whale of a time. Please pass my thanks on to the
other members of the band. If anyone wondering whether to book you or not
wants to talk to someone for whom you have performed please do not hesitate
to refer them to me. It will be a pleasure to sing your praises. Thanks
once again for a wonderful evening,
D. and C.T.
Just a short note to thank you and the band for your tremendous contribution
to the success of our Barn Dance for the King's Heath Cricket Club last Saturday.
We have already had many calls from friends who attended to say how much
they enjoyed the evening.. The atmosphere created by your excellent playing,
not forgetting the superb Caller, made it a very memorable occasion. Thank
you once again.
Yours sincerely J.M.E. King's Heath Cricket Club,
Dear Fiona - Just a note to thank you and your fellow Band members for making
our Company Evening such a splendid one. As you probably noticed, we all
had a wonderful time. Your music certainly helped to get everyone involved
and soon made us forget to be embarrassed! We hope you enjoyed yourselves
as much as we did and we will definitely keep your name in mind when planning
Thanks again. T.T.
