TESTIMONIALS

I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of us and all our guests for your amazing performance on Saturday. Please thank all your band mates too, you were all such a wonderful addition to the party and the music was superb.

We just wanted to say thank you very much to you and the band for Saturday. The music was really amazing, and everybody commented on how much they enjoyed it. I never expected to see a normally quiet and shy bunch of librarians get up and dance so enthusiastically! They absolutely loved it, and so did we. It really was a day we will remember forever. Thank you again.
Sergei and Karen

Just wanted to pass on a huge thankyou to Andy and the boys for playing at our wedding on 22nd July at The Wool Barn, Frampton. Me and Stuart had the most perfect day and my family loved dancing along to the wonderful music. Couldn’t have asked for a better band.
Hannah Howell

I meant to write to you sooner to say thank you so much for the 21st July. Everyone thought you were great and really enjoyed the band and it was exactly what we were looking for.

I wanted to email to express our sincere thanks to you for playing at our wedding on Saturday. The three guys were absolutely fantastic, playing outside the church before and after the service, and again back at the reception venue as planned. It was exactly what I’d hoped for, and a brilliant and very welcome surprise for my new wife. Our guests all thought the band were great and it really added something extra special to what was already a special day. We all had a fabulous time, and Al and his two band members created that relaxed, laid back atmosphere we were hoping for.
Jon and Caron

We wanted to personally thank you for such a wonderful afternoon on Saturday. You guys are absolute dudes! It was so perfect and you were so professional, even with the unpredictable weather. So thank you!
Hannah and Jason

Thank you so much, the band was amazing. Just what we imagined and all our guests loved them! We could just see the top of the Tuba as we drove up to the field which was brilliant . They were extremely reliable and even moved to a better place at the venue which we appreciated their guidance. Really professional and sounded brilliant!
Amelia and Lee

"Utterly brilliant" was the verdict on the first visit to the club of Simon Picton’s Westside Syncopators yesterday. With a terrific frontline of Andy Dickens, Al Nicholls and Dave Hewett, backed by a great rhythm section of Simon, plus Manel Alvarez and Rod Brown, they were absolutely first-class. Who would have thought that Irving Berlin’s waltz All Alone could make such a great jazz number?
Ray Crick

Dear Simon, Many thanks for a wonderful evening - everyone I spoke to raved about you and your band's performance.
Bill Tozer

Hi Simon, that was great, you guys blew the roof off Peckham !!! The feedback has been amazing, the place is still buzzing, we definitely want you back! Not only was the music fabulous it was a real pleasure dealing with such a professional band.
Simon Beresford

We were absolutely delighted with The Westside Syncopators and couldn't recommend them highly enough! The group were brilliant; we thoroughly enjoyed their music, their presentation and their willingness to capture the mood of the evening.
Mrs Angela Roth

They positioned themselves and selected an appropriate programme to provide background music for lunch. When requested they stepped up and became the central focus of the afternoon out on the lawn. They thoroughly entertained an audience that ranged in age from 2 weeks to 92 years. We (the bride and groom) were thrilled with their performance and we have had multiple positive comments from our guests at how much they enjoyed the music.
Helen Spragg

Your band were great at last week's car show in Giffnock. The audience enjoyed them and the music suited the event perfectly.

Chris and I are very grateful for providing such wonderful music at our wedding reception. We came in a little later than everyone else and were floored by how amazing you all sounded. All of our guests spoke so highly of your band and we wanted us to pass on this message. Thank you again.
