Limelight were great and extremely helpful and kept in constant contact and dealt with the hotel directly saving us time and effort.
Customer review by Sandra Bastianelli, Schroders

Limelight performed at the Battersea Barge and received a warm and enthusiastic response from the audience. Their stylish interpretations of the mainly American songbook were supported by great musicianship from the band and the male and female vocalists really sold the songs!
We hope they return here soon for another great night of jazz.

I can't thank you and the rest of Limelight enough for the fantastic music you provided for my joint 50th birthday party last year.  The choice of songs and quality of sound was just superb. There was a variety of ages at the party and the music suited us all whether we were up on the dance floor or chatting with friends and family.  I have had no hesitation in recommending you to friends and neighbours and will continue to do so.
I just need another excuse for a party to book Limelight again!

Just a note to say that the band were fantastic. They really helped make the wedding reception a roaring success and all ages absolutely loved them. They were also very efficient and flexible in setting up and packing up - fitting in perfectly with the rest of our arrangements. Many thanks

Paul - I must say that the band were excellent, I think they had numerous members of the families tell them so. We were both really pleased with the whole day, and the band certainly made an invaluable contribution to it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anybody!

Happy New Year! Sorry for delay, we have been away on our honeymoon.
We were very happy with Limelight along with all of our guests, they were very professional, you would never have noticed them setting up. They played a great selection of music and had everyone up dancing. We would highly recommend them and would consider them for any other events we might have in the future.
