Struttin' and Jivin' What can I say? The music, the ambience? It was like sitting in at Rick's in Algiers and thinking you just saw "Bogart" stroll by! We could tell through the hatchway, that the crowd was loving it, meanwhile, back in the kitchen, we were struttin' and jivin'! We gotta get these kids back!!!

Music For All Age Groups To have Sweet And Lowdown play for us proved an excellent choice. Their music was enjoyed by all the age groups there and suited the theme of our evening brilliantly. They were punctual from the beginning, had a wonderful singer and repertoire and were very smartly attired. They were extremely polite, concerned that the volume they played at was to our liking and all our guests are coming back to us to say what an enjoyable evening it was. Their consideration and professionalism was superb. This was music which could be listened to, danced to and still we were able to hold a conversation comfortably. This is where they excelled. If its good music one wants to listen to then this is the band we thoroughly recommend.

Voice Like Velvet We were privileged to be entertained by this exceptionally talented band at the Cartwright Arms on Sunday February 9th.

We were a group of 36 people of varying ages and from the emails I received that evening and the next day we will definitely be looking to book them again next year for our annual dinner.

They fitted the bill perfectly and were so accommodating regarding the music, the tempo, impartially judging our" best dressed" raffle prize and actually drawing the tickets.
These guys are excellent musicians, Nicky has a voice like velvet and they really do dress for the part.
It was such an enjoyable and euphoric evening that I was still on a high for the next 2 days.
