Oh wow. A truly fabulous night at Washington Club last night. our thanks go out to everyone that danced their socks off. All made possible by the fantastic Kit Packham and One Jump Ahead.
– Eight Beat Jive, Washington.
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!

One Jump Ahead were everything we could possibly have wanted in a wedding band and more!! Communication before the day was great- Kit designed a bespoke set list for us and even took the time to edit things to suit how we wanted the night to play out. On the night they instantly lifted the mood, had everyone up dancing and really interacted with us- some band members even signed our guest book! We loved how every musician showcased their talents with solo sections, but mostly how they all came together to give us an unforgettable performance. Thank you so much to the entire band for making our wedding reception unforgettable- I don’t think I left the dance floor all night! 🙂

A big “thank you” to you and the band for making my birthday party a really special evening. I think without exception, everyone commented on how much they had enjoyed the band and how professional you all were. It was great to hear some of my favourite songs included in the set, thanks for letting me choose from your big repertoire of swinging tunes.

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!

It was an absolute pleasure to have you perform for us and also to meet such a lovely bunch of people 🙂 A huge number of people sought me out, specifically to let me know ‘how fantastic the band were’ and how much they were enjoying your work. I think this speaks for itself! It goes without saying that the music was superb, your energy was fantastic and you created a great atmosphere with your energy and style! I also thank you for your knowledge and advice at various points. You really went beyond what was stated on our contract and I am very grateful for that. I would book you again in a blink!

You were absolutely fantastic and caught the mood of the guests wonderfully. We all had such a great time and loved dancing the night away. The dance floor was virtually consistently full and age of dancers varied from 8-80. It was the best time I personally have had at a wedding for years. We would certainly book you again.
