Glen & Kelly, Old Basing, Hants.

“Can you please pass on our sincere thanks to the band for their outstanding performance on Saturday at our wedding. Everyone absolutely loved their music – they were good spirited, kind, lovely men and they played fantastically. We had a good boogie and they accommodated all our random requests very gracefully. I hope I get the pleasure of hearing them play again one day!
Kind regards
Kelly” – Kit Packham Quartet for the wedding reception of Glen & Kelly, Old Basing, Hants.

Stuart & Anna, October 2011

The music you played was perfect and I lost count of the number of people that commented to me, both on the night and afterwards at just how good you all were. You created such a good atmosphere and really got people up dancing and enjoying themselves. Everyone enjoyed it regardless of their age range or taste in music.

Caroline & Marc, September 2010

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the fantastic job that you and your band did providing the evenings entertainment at our wedding in September. Your set was fantastic, you kept the crowd dancing throughout and the standard of the music was exceptionally high. I have had nothing but praise for you from all of our guests. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to friends in the future, and if I ever have the need for a band at a party, you will be there!

Angela’s vintage theme 30th anniversary party, Brighton

Wow is the word. We had a vintage British seaside themed 30th wedding anniversary party for over 100 guest by Brighton Beach at the iconic BA 1360. Kit Packham and his brilliant band One Jump Ahead were outstanding from start to finish. We’d hired a group of swing dancers who got everybody dancing, regardless of ability! The band played everything we wanted from Glenn Miller to Aint Nobody Here But us Chickens. People just did not stop dancing! the finale New New York number resulted in 100 guests joining hands and all doing the high kicks. To say One Jump Ahead made our party go with a swing would be an understatement. I would also like to thank Kit and the band for their professionalism, time keeping and energy. Kit was so easy to deal with and the arrangements went so smoothly. I could not recommend them more highly. Book One Jump Ahead if you want your wedding / party to go with a swing!

Keith’s birthday party, Croydon.

“Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant. Everything I hoped for and more. Please forward this to the other band members to convey my thanks to all.”
