One of the most outstanding bands I’ve danced to in more than eight-and-a-half continuous years of swing dancing. At Bishopsgate Swing last night, their music was right in the groove. The sort of medium tempo stuff with a strong beat the majority of us Lindy Hoppers most love dancing to. And they were only a trio – drums, guitar and horns (sax/clarinet). Yet they made great sounds. Even the few faster tunes they played were still quite danceable for those not really into Balboa or Shag. The drummer/vocalist, Laura, was particularly amazing – with a light, girlish voice very reminiscent of the late Blossom Dearie. I wish some of the live bands we dance to would emulate them instead of assuming we all love dancing most of the time either insanely fast or agonisingly slow. I hope more of our event organisers hire them.

Thank you Laura and co for arriving in plenty of time for the event and generally for being the professional musicians you all are! Lovely music and perfect volume for our guests to enjoy whilst being able to talk too. I’m sure we’ll have you back again soon.

We are back from a wonderful two weeks in Greece and finally have time to sit down and write to you. Thank you so much for your wonderful playing at our wedding, you surpassed all expectations! ‘Moon River’ for our first dance was just perfect, we had so much fun showing off to our guests! A lot of our friends and family are musicians and we had lots of comments on the night about how great you were and we will certainly recommend you to anyone who asks!
R Galton 04-05-19
Thanks so much for today. You guys really were brilliant. Lots of lovely comments from guests. I don’t know if you could hear but Nan started singing along as you did The Girl That I’ll Marry. She was really touched and I struggled not to cry as she sat singing with you. So thanks for helping to mark her milestone!
L Patman 20-04-19

Ellie & Dane – Wedding 14-07-18
Couldn’t have asked for a better band than The Night & Day Collective for our Graduation Ball last week. Considering we booked fairly last minute, I was blown away by their professionalism and confidence. I even asked if they could learn and play a few songs that meant a lot to us the week before the event and they exceeded my expectations entirely! Our guests couldn’t get enough and were up dancing before dessert had even been served! Extremely talented musicians and lovely, lovely people! Would definitely consider booking them again.
Benjamin – Graduation Ball 13-07-18
Thank you so much once again. You were amazing and the feedback from everyone has been brilliant.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you all for playing so beautifully at The Summer Party last night, and for being such a wonderful presence at the event. It was great to meet you all! I will most definitely bear you in mind for future events – and honestly if I ever get married you are behind my ear for that! I love your sound and it was so perfect for last night. We have had so many wonderfully positive comments about your sets, so thank you!!
Imogen – Courtauld Gallery Summer Party 18-06-18
We just wanted to drop you a little message to thank you again for playing at our wedding! The music set the tone perfectly for our drinks reception and we’ve had so many guests mention how wonderful you were- including a classical pianist who apparently was so mesmerised by your playing he kept ignoring a conversation with his friends! Also several people have said they would love to go and just listen to you play again sometime!
Thank you again for helping make our wedding day so special,
Priya & John – Wedding 09-06-18

Everyone had a really lovely evening and really enjoyed your sets!
I met you last night at the London Bridge Hilton and loved your set! If you’re available next Saturday to play at my Christmas Cocktail party I’d love to book you. Thanks very much!
Thank you so much for coming all the way to Bristol again, you really were fab – I’ve heard only good comments about you.
Earlier this week I had the privilege of meeting Laura, Andy and Rich from The Night and Day Collective as they played for an event I attended at Heathrow. Their tight and uniquely stylish music provided a great start to the evening. Really tight vintage jazz, with humorous modern twists (Daft Punk anyone?) just made me want to tap my feet and stay listening all night. I’ll certainly keep a lookout on their website for future gigs and hope to catch them again soon in a much better venue.
I just wish I’d been an A&R man, I’d have signed them up!
Just a quick note to say thank you for your performance at our Grand Finals on Friday night, you were great and we received lots of positive comments from our guests. Sorry I didn’t get to say goodbye properly but I was rushed off my feet!
Thanks very much for your email and thank you so much for Thursday the music was really great!

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding last Saturday. Your band was exactly what we wanted, you really got our party going and all of our guests loved you!
