Testimonials |

"Gatsby are simply incredible. We were lucky enough to fly the band out to Dubai for our wedding in June this year, and what a great decision to do so - our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without them. Jonathan and Gemma are amazing, words cannot describe just how good they are. We had Jonathan for most of the day - singing during the ceremony itself, performing during the champagne reception on a yacht, and then the full band throughout the evening. The entire day and night was planned out perfectly, tailored to our requirements - which is what makes working with the guys so great. We even had the band doing a live old-school garage set so we could re-live our childhood - perfection. We will continue to recommend Gatsby and to hire them again in the future"

 - Jenna & Andrew - Dubai.



"Maria And I can’t thank Gatsby enough for their performance at our wedding in Lake Garda. They took it to a whole new level and I’ve never heard a band as good - and I’ve heard quite a few! Incredible musicians and even better people - can’t recommend highly enough."

 - Dan and Maria, Isola Del Garda - Italy.



"Gatsby blew me away, will definitely be booking them for future events!”

- Rachel Carson - Rugby World Cup 2015



"Quite simply the best wedding band I’ve ever heard! I think everyone was shattered afterwards from dancing so much!"

- Sophie and Allan’s Wedding - Madrid, Spain



"I’ve hired many bands for our Corporate Events, but no one has ever got the crowd going like Gatsby. Can’t wait till our next event so I can get them back again.”

- Alberto Gazar - Monaco



"On the day of the wedding Jonathan was amazing.  His performance was incredibly emotional for us as I walked down the aisle and the guests couldn't believe that he was actually singing and not pre recorded!  For our evening reception he stepped it up again with his amazing band Gatsby - we had 4 year olds dancing to Under The Sea and 70 year olds danced to the Rolling Stones.  The dance floor was never empty and everyone had an amazing time."

- Emma Christou


"Jonathan Carr was one of the best finds of our lives so far! What a privilege to listen to this rising star! The Savoy was filled with an incredible and captivating voice with a personality to match. Not only is Jonathan a gem, but his band Gatby are equally as energetic and fun! You won't be disappointed if you dedicate a few hours to spend in their presence. Your feet will be tapping away well into the next day.."

- Christina and Charles Clarke
