"The Nightjars were absolutely incredible. So easy to book and deal with - everything went swimmingly. They absolutely lifted my 40th birthday party through the roof. Everyone was up dancing and having a blast. Their professionalism and quality are second to none. They ensured that we were happy with their setup in advance and on the evening there was no fuss or stress. We couldn't have been happier. Thank you so very much. All my guests wanted their details!"

"The Nightjars performed at our wedding in Norfolk. We booked the instrumental trio to play during our drinks reception and their singer Freddie joined them for another set during our wedding breakfast. We spoke with Chris during the planning stages - he was responsive, friendly, and helpful. On the day the band were simply fantastic and created the perfect atmosphere with their music. We made a couple of special requests (favourite songs of parents) which they included in the dinner set and these made it really special. Wouldn’t hesitate to book them again in the future for anything!"
