Hi, Kevin, The Beatroot Beatles went down very well on Saturday. The dance floor was full all night which is always a good sign. Good feedback from the guests all evening. The guys were very professional and also very accomodating, nothing too much trouble.
Thanks for your help, Paul Burdett (Club Captain)


Paul Burdett (Club Captain) Forest of Arden Golf Club Summer Ball on 8th June 2013

First and foremost, it was a pleasure working with you Kevin to set everything up.  I appreciate that everything was so easy and no fuss or problem. Secondly, The Heartbeat Hollies were TERRIFIC!  Fantastic music, all set up early, ready to go on cue and great, great music.  It was a total pleasure working with them all too and I very much look forward to booking them again next chance I get. Please pass along my thank you to everyone and looking forward to booking you all again soon. Kind regards, Kathleen.


Kathleen Collier, CSSA Corporate Dinner Dance, Kensington on 7th June 2013.

The Beatroot Beatles were amazing the perfect choice for our wedding day. I love the Beatles and I had a fiancée that wasn't so sure but after the day I had definitely converted him. We had a really wide range of ages with our wedding guests but everyone was up dancing and have commented since how great they were and that they were a perfect addition to the evening. Many said it gave it a real stand out WOW factor to our big day and I would have to agree with them. We would happily recommend them to anyone. Amazing tribute act. Thanks again Kevin.

Stephanie Meadows, birthday party at Broomfield Hall on 26/5/12

Kevin, Thankyou for arranging everything and ensuring both the band and dj could play at the times we requested, although we pushed things back abit on the day due to the gorgeous weather. We had the best day ever and Armarda and Dynamite Disco were all amazing. Great feedback from all our friends and family. Armarda, Just a quick note before we go on our honeymoon to say how absolutely amazing we thought you guys were on Saturday. People have been asking who you all are as you were so good, great great feedback!

Laura Redfern, Birthday Party at Santos Restaurant, Higham Farm on 27/4/12

Kevin, Thank you for your excellent advice in recommending Riptide, for Beth's 18th birthday. As you were aware I had some reservations around what band to have, as the audience spanned such a broad age range. Your advice was perfect and what a night we had. What a great group of young lads Riptide are, all so polite, well turned out and keen to engage. The band were truly amazing and all excellent musicians. My daughters friends loved them and want to see more?!
The range of songs the band played in their live set spanned from the 60's to the current day and appealed to all. People danced all night and a big thanks for the way the band interacted with Beth. I have recommended Riptide to friends and colleagues so others can enjoy the experience we had. I am hoping to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday next June and I will be certainly be seeking you out for the entertainment. Many thanks,Steve.


Steve Wain, birthday party at Matlock Town Sports & Social Club on 17/3/12

Hi Kev, Bernie – Magic at your fingertips was excellent!  Really good, mingled well without being intrusive, went to each table to entertain, very good close up skills.  Totally worth the money, would book him again. Regards Heather. 


Heather Jackson PA to the Managing Director Deb Ltd. Corporate Dinner at Stapleford Park on 3/2/12

Hi Kevin, Happy New Year. Indigo Sunset put a tremendous act on to bring the New Year in with a splash, they played just the sort of music that the punters wanted, very popular choice and our members are very pleased with the whole event. Very willing to please the members and the play list so extensive and a very broad choice of numbers. Thanks again, Rodger.


Rodger Heathcote, Chesterfield Golf Club New Years Eve Party 31/12/ 2011

Dear Kevin, The band, Red Nation were brilliant, all that came enjoyed the music that they played, thank you for getting us the band for New Year, we will be in touch for a band for next years festivities. Many thanks, Sue Concannon, Manageress.


Sue Concannon, The Scotsmans Pack New Years Eve Party, Hathersage 31/12/11

Hi Kevin, I just wanted to write a quick email to say how great SKM are. SKM are the best band I have heard in a very long time!  These boys can really play. Their set list was lively and exactly what my party needed to get people up and dancing. Having their own lighting system made the show even better too. The guys were incredibly polite and professional. They arrived and set up at the venue promptly, and did not have a want for anything the whole evening. They were so accommodating that they even learnt a new song especially for my party, and their version of that song was brilliant. I would definitely book SKM again, and would certainly recommend them to anyone. Thanks for arranging everything, Amanda.


Amanda Wheal. Birthday party at Nottingham Casuals RFC on 3/12/11

Many many thanks Kevin. We had a fantastic night on Saturday. The Beatroot Beatles & Dynamite Disco were absolutely superb. We had some top musicians among our guests and they were so impressed that, along with our other guests are now literally begging for another Beatles/60s night out! The lads were professional, very polite and friendly, what a great show! There's only one word to describe the night in 60s 'speak'...FAB! We'll be seeing you again soon lads. Sue.


Sue Ashby, Party at the Chase Hotel, Nuneaton 26/11/11

Kevin, Thank you for recommending Steve Howe. We all thoroughly enjoyed his performance on Saturday night. He was absolutely brilliant. It's a long time since I've seen anyone as good. His covers were a popular choice and had people dancing even on the grass! He is a very confident performer with a great voice and his experience showed with his pleasant and jovial rapport with the audience. We would certainly book Steve again. Thanks again, Ann.


Ann Taylor, Annual Vintage Festival of Light, Ashover Show Ground on 1/10/11

Hi Kevin, Yes I found you to be very very professional and prompt. From the second I spoke to you I felt completely reassured. Riptide were great, every one at the wedding loved them. Thank you. Emma.


Emma. Wedding reception at Shottle Hall on 23/9/11

Hello Kev, Thank you so much for all of your help in organising the entertainment for our wedding. Armarda were fantastic and everyone commented on how brilliant they were. Hope to see you again soon. All our love, Sam & Jo.


Sam & Jo. Wedding reception at Horsley Lodge Golf Club Hotel on 10/9/11.

Hi Kevin, We were more than happy with your service and The SUBS were brill, everybody thought they where amazing and I would like to thank you and the band for making our day all we wished it would be. We will definitely recommend and you will be our 1st contact if/when we host a large party in the future!Thank you again, Kirsten and Richard.


Kirsten and Richard Davoll, Wedding reception at Alrewas Hayes on 9/9/11.

Hi Kevin, I was more than happy with your service and communications when booking the band for our party. All The Kings Men were, as expected, fantastic, we had a brilliant evening and we received lots of comments from our guests about how good the band were. I am more than happy to share my comments with others, and am more than happy to recommend your services and acts. Regards Julia.


Julia Coffin, Birthday party at the Hilton Hotel Nottingham on 3/9/11

Hi, Just a short note to say that the employees of Abrafoam thoroughly enjoyed the music of Armarda, the band played great renditions of both classic and modern pop/rock anthems; they mixed it up and kept the dance floor full the entire night!  We would highly recommend them; they were personable and professional, we all had a lot of fun! Susan Finch - sia Abrafoam Ltd.


Susan Finch, Corporate Party BBQ, Shirland Golf Club on 20/8/11.

Kev, Firstly thanks for your help in putting me in touch with Armarda. The band were excellent. There was very good communication on the run up to the wedding and they were accommodating around the times they would perform. On the day they turned up on time and were very professional. The performance was excellent. They got everyone up dancing. Afterwards there were a lot of positive comments from the other guests. The last track they performed was 'Pretty Vacant' which went down well. Dave.


Dave Cox, Wedding reception at Cockliffe Country House Hotel on 26/8/11.

Hi Kevin, Thank you and to Andrew Randell soooo very much for making my mums 70th birthday party very very special. What can I say?  Andrew Randell is incredible.  Had us all up dancing, some of us non- stop - he was brilliant!  We all had an amazing night, my mum especially, she felt so special when Andrew sang one of her favourite songs to her (made my us cry - in a very good way - it was simply filled with emotion - as you know she loves Lionel Ritchie - made her night completely - she loved it, in fact hasn't stopped talking about it since). Afterwards, absolutely everyone commented on how good and how much they thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment for the evening.  A good time was definitely had by all, whether they just sang along or got up on the dance floor or even both.  Thank you once again. Kind regards, Paula.


Paula-Jane Herbert. Private party at Woodville on 13/8/11

Hello Kevin, This was the first time Chevin Golf Club had ventured into booking a Big Band for entertainment so I was a little apprehensive on how the event would be received. The Bluejaks
8-piece band provided musicians of the highest order with vocals to match; this ensured we had a fantastic evening with music to suit all tastes and members danced the night away. I would not hesitate in booking this great Band for another big event at Chevin Golf Club. I would certainly recommend The Bluejaks to any organisation looking to provide excellent entertainment and value for money. Thanks for providing excellent entertainment for the Captain's Summer Ball. I can’t tell you the number of both men and women who have come up to me to express their appreciation for organising the evening. Tony Ashton, Social Chairman Chevin Golf Club.


Tony Ashton, Summer Ball at Chevin Golf Club, Duffield, Derby on 16/07/11.

Hi Kevin, Thank you again for your help at such short notice, I am very grateful. The evening was very good, 'All The Kings Men' were brilliant and everyone enjoyed the music. We are very grateful for to you for recommending this band, we would definately book them again, and recommend them to others. They played a good range of music appealing to everyone who attended, and gave off a friendly vibe.


Heather Smart. Private party at Youlgreave on 7th August 2011.

Mr Jackson! We had a magical day and The Bluejaks were superb! Loads of people said they were great! We thought they were brilliant. Thanks again Ruth & Ken.


Ruth & Ken Colwell. Wedding at Yoxall on 30/6/11.

HI Kevin, The 'Aces Of Rhythm' were great. Exactly what was requested and the client seemed very pleased with their contribution to a very successful day. Carla,  Saffron Catering Solutions.


Carla Garey, Corporate Open Day, Enderby, Leicester. 27/6/11.

Hi Kevin, We had a terrific night and the Heartbeat Hollies played a big part in making it such a success.  They were very receptive to the needs of the audience and adjusted their planned programme accordingly. They established a good relationship with the guests, talking to them
and involving them in the entertainment.  Their performance was slick, varied and had everyone on the floor dancing.  I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any similar function. Kind regards, Graham.


Graham Fletcher, CHSA Dinner at Copthorne Tara Hotel, Kensington.13/5/11

Hi Kevin, It was a fantastic night,the band and DJ excelled themselves. Would recommend them to anybody. (Beatroot Beatles,The S.U.B.S & Dynamite Disco). Regards Lisa.


Lisa, wedding at Brooksby Hall, Melton Mowbray on 1/4/11

Hi Kevin, Yes thank you for suggesting The SUBS they were great. Everyone has told me how great they were and enquired how I found them. If anyone else asks I will certainly point them
in your direction. I really enjoyed their playing and would recommend them. My only reservation would be venue, I think the ceiling in the venue was a little low for the volume and realise you can't play any quieter than a drum kit will allow! If I used them again it would be for a larger
room with a higher ceiling. Thanks again, Susan Tomlinson.


Susan Tomlinson. Birthday Party at Barlow Village Hall on 14/5/11

Hi Kevin, Yes RIPTIDE were fantastic. Very professional and good fun. They were very accommodating and our guests all commented on how good they were. We wouldn't
hesitate to recommend them to other people. The whole process was simple and caused no stress which I was grateful for when dealing with lots of people to organise the wedding. A big thank you. Claire and Rob.


Claire and Rob, wedding at Shottle Hall on 16/4/11

Both the Beatroot Beatles and Dynamite Disco provided outstanding entertainment all evening.
The disco made sure that any guest requests were played and did so with a pleasant and courteous manner. There were a few guests that were going to book the Beatroot Beatles as soon as they got home, while the rest were blown away by the whole effect especially the appropriate clothing for the songs playing.Outstanding! John & Janet Irvine.


John & Janet Irvine, wedding at Derby Conference Centre on 16/4/11.

Hi Kevin, We have recently recommended you to others. The Beatroot Beatles and Disco were professional and entertained everyone all evening. Since our wedding we have received constant praise for the entertainment provided by Jackson Events. Friends of ours were so impressed on the night that they have actually booked the package for their wedding next year. We would happily recommend you to family and friends. Many thanks, Matt and Lauren.


Matt & Lauren Lole, wedding at Sketchley Grange Hotel, Burbage on 19/2/11

Dear Kev, I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to your Tinsel Band for performing at my retirement function at the b2net stadium in Chesterfield on Saturday, 26th March, 2011. As ever they were a class act and ensured that the evening was a great success.  Many of the guests have been very complimentary about their performance and commented as to how much they enjoyed it. Best wishes for the future. Yours sincerely ROGER FLINT.


Roger Flint. Retirement party at b2net Stadium 26/3/11.

Dear Kevin, The Beatroot Beatles were amazing and made the evening! Every one enjoyed the evening and the boys looked as though they were having a good time. Thanks for arranging things. Mike and Jacquie.

Hello Kevin, Just a very big thankyou for arranging Zephyr 5 who gave us what was a wonderful evening of entertainment. The music was just what the age group need and they were extremely pleased. Many thanks to them and thanks for your help. Regards, Dennis Wake. (Hon Secretary)


Dennis Wake (Hon Sec) Horsley Lodge Golf Club Dinner/Dance 12/3/11

CHASER. Easy to describe this band, they are fabulous! Line up is Karen and Ted sharing vocals, great voices and well rehearsed choreography, on lead guitar Simon, bass Steve, rhythm another Steve and on drums a mountain of a man is Ant. All four musicians really know their instruments.
Two sets of fast paced rock music kept the applause coming from another full concert room once again. Alan Jay (Reporter for the Entertainer Magazine).


Alan Jay (Entertainer Magazine). Re Performance at Holmewood Club on 26/2/11

Hi Kevin, I just wanted to say a big thank you Zephyr 5 for a great evening's music. All the guests said how much they enjoyed their music and I know that they all worked really hard to produce that sound. I had a fantastic evening, and I've had lots of friends who were at the party say the same thing - the band made the evening.They were a great bunch of musicians and played their hearts out. Thanks once again and I'll hopefully book Zephyr 5 for my 70th! Best wishes, Ian.


Ian Stern, 60th birthday party at Chesterfield Labour Club on 8/1/11

Hi Kevin, Please pass on our many thanks to all the lads in Riptide. They were great – everyone had an excellent time and the feedback from all has been very positive -  Riptide were not only great to dance to but also good to watch and listen to. The guys were very accommodating and we would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to have a live band at a function. Your assistance is also much appreciated and we hope to be in touch next year. All the best for Christmas and regards for the new year. Sandra Smith P.A. to Managing Director PCE Limited.


Sandra Smith of PCE Ltd. Corporate Party Lea Marston Hotel Sutton Coldfield 11/12/10.

Kev, Just a quick note to say a big thanks for arranging Chaser for our annual Masonic ladies evening in aid of the British Heart Foundation. The band were a good all round sound and we felt that they were part of the night. The play list was fantastic and we will be definitely getting them for future dinners, events. The band set up in the day without any fuss with a no problem attitude and we really thought they raised the roof with the singing, the dance floor was never empty. Comments were made throughout the night saying they were one of the best bands ever seen at a ladies evening, keep it up and we will be recommending yourself and the band to all in the future. Well done! Thanks Lewis Kirkman, Mitchell & Hewitt Ltd.


Lewis Kirkman Masonic Ladies Night, Littleover Grange Banqueting Suite.16/10/10

Kevin, Just a quick thank you for Saturday evenings event. Everyone had an excellent time & the Beatroot Beatles & Union Jackson Disco went down a treat. Janet thoroughly enjoyed her Birthday celebrations & we look forward to seeing the Band again at some future events. If you have an itinery as to any public events they are playing in future we would be interested to know where they are. Regards, David Clarke.


David Clarke, Birthday Party at the Riverside Club, Chesterfield on 30/10/10

Hi Chaser, We would love to thank you all for such a fantastic night of dancing. We, of course, already knew our mates were party animals, but when we first heard you play at the Phoenix, sorry, Edgefold Club I also was pretty sure that you would suit us down to the ground. I could never have been more right.  What a fab night we had.  Personally, I think I danced from 7:30pm to 1am - (even though it only seemed like 10 minutes) only stopping to drink the odd cocktail or two.  Our friends have since told us what a brilliant time they had and how great they thought you all were. I loved your set, I reckon it really appeals to a mixed crowd containing some people of a certain maturity who ought to know better by now, but don't! Thanks once again for helping with the best day of our lives - so far...Cheers, Hayley & Kris.


Hayley & Kris Plumley. Wedding Reception at Ripley 28/8/10

Hi Kevin, The lads were brill as both the S.U.B.S and the Beatroot Beatles and I would recommend anytime, everyone commented on how great they sounded. Thanks again, and keep us posted with any dates in the future where the lads are playing as we enjoy their stuff. Many Thanks Emma & Rob.


Emma & Rob Dolman wedding at Newton Solney Park Hotel 10/9/10

Hi Kev,  The lads and D.J. Carol were 1st class, we've had at least 3 people who are getting married in the future enquire about them & I've passed your details over to them. The overiding comment from most people about the day (apart from the actual wedding) was how good the band were. The entertainment was brilliant and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone of all ages infact the Bearoot Beatles really made my Dad's day as he is a massive Beatles fan and we kept the entertainment a surprise from everyone. All our guests have commented since the wedding on how good they were and I couldn't recommend them enough well worth every penny we spent :0) They were lovely friendly lads and we would love to see them play again. Mark & Leanne.


Mark & Leanne Lancashire. Wedding reception at Draycote Hotel, Nr Rugby 29/8/10

Hello Kevin, Just wanted to record our thanks to you and the Heartbeat Hollies for Saturday evening. We did manage to get through the meal and formalities a bit quicker this year, so they had to work that bit longer. They did very well and kept us well entertained and the dance floor well populated most of the time (advancing years mean we need a breather every so often!). Yours in Rotary, Andrew Loades, President 2010/11, Rotary Club of Amber Valley.


Andrew Loades. Rotary Dinner Dance at the Derbyshire Hotel on 25/9/10

Hi Kevin, Just to let you know Dammit Jack were fantastic at our wedding on the 29th August. We had a great evening!!!!! Regards Andrew & Sarah.


Andrew & Sarah Powell. Wedding reception at Shottle Hall on 29/8/10

Hi Kevin, We had an absolutely amazing wedding day. Both the 'Beatroot Beatles' and DJ Carole did a fantastic job; firstly the band are a great group of lads and everyone loved both of their sets, the dance floor was full by the end. They also looked the part and the whole set up was fantastic, we were so pleased that everything ran so smoothly. Of course the most important thing was that they sounded amazing and all the songs they did were great! I am also so glad that we chose to have Carole look after the music, she was brilliant and really flexible with everything. She also did a great job and everything ran perfectly!It was definitely the best day of our lives and the fact that everybody enjoyed the evening so much was a massive part of that. Also many thanks to yourself for the organisation leading up to the day, brilliant all round. Many Thanks Chris & Abbi.


Chris & Abi Hallett. Wedding reception at Callow Hall, Asbourne on 29/5/10.

Hi Kev, Just to say that Robbie Jacks was great at our Classic Home & E Type Jaguar charity day. He really held the day together by keeping our clients and visitors entertained - the atmosphere was great. Thanks again. Margoxxx.


Marguerite Harrison. Organiser of Charity Event at Callingwood Hall Farm, Tatenhill, Burton on Trent. 5/6/10

Hi Kevin, A big thanks to the Tinsel Band & The Beatroot Beatles. Without exception, everybody we've seen has said what a great, entertaining night they had and can we have you again next year! Including the raffle we raised a total of £2,600 for our charities. On your side, everyone we dealt with was brill. Please pass on my thanks to the sound guy Lee Horsley for all his help on the sound levels - nothing was too much trouble for him and he kept checking all was Ok throughout the night. When there is a mix of older folk as well as younger ones, I was really conscious that they might find it too loud and this was all taken care of straight away. I thought the number of bands was just right for us - the Beatroots got alot of praise and also the S.U.B.S went down really well too. The other artists were all just brilliant as usual, we had such a laugh as well as raising money which is what it's all about. Al

Allison Richards. Co-organiser of Charity Fund Raiser at Rolls Royce Club, Derby 14/5/10

Hi Kevin, The Revolvers were excellent.  From the organisational side, despite getting lost, they arrived in plenty of time to set up before the event began.  They did this with the minimum amount of fuss and entertained the catering staff as part of their rehearsals, much to the staff's delight.  They were promptly on stage and sensitive to the dancers need in planning their programme.  Their performance was superb, faithfully reproducing the songs of the sixties, encouraging the guests to dance and giving them a great time.  As a group of individuals they were very personable and eager to please.  I would have no hesitation in recommending them. Kind regards, Graham.


Graham Fletcher organiser of CHSA Dinner Dance, Copthorne Tara Hotel, Kensington. 14/5/10

Hi Kev, Just a quick note to say a megga thank -you to yourself and all the Tinsel Band & Beatroot Beatles for a brilliant night at Ecclesbourne School. We managed to raise a great sum of money which has gone to Meningitis Trust, Headway and local charities to the school. We had a brill night and the feedback has been superb from everyone who went, so thanks again, it was great to see the familiar faces everyone was so friendly. Maybe another booking in the future? Hope you to see at your next venue and we have linked people who came to the school to your website to support you. Best wishes to you all. Maggie x


Maggie Wicks, Organiser of Ecclesbourne School Fundraising Show on 24/4/10

Dear Kevin and Simon, We just wanted to say a big thank you to you both (and to Chaser) for the music you provided at our wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed your sets and lots of our guests have commented on how good the band were. We were very impressed with the lengths you both went to to ensure that the evening was a success and the band were very entertaining and professional. We would not hesitate to use your services again and will be recommending you to all our friends.  We'll look out for Chaser playing again locally so might see you around!

Tracey Spafford, Guernsey. Birthday Party at Alport, Bakewell on 10/4/10.

Hello Mr Jackson, I would like to thank the Tinsel Band & Beatroot Beatles for another fantastic evening.  I had very good feedback from friends, colleages and teaching staff. What a brilliant night everyone had, it was very entertaining. The sound was great and all seemed to run pretty straight forward. It was very successful as this showed from the amount of people and followers who supported the band. Thank you to everyone who helped sell the tickets as well. Thank you again to all band members, entertaining singers, sound people and wonderful commentating. The school raising £875 and the Out of Town bar staff gave us £100 as well. Thanks Julie Eaton

Kevin,  A very big thankyou to you and all the artists and helpers in the Tinsel Band & Beatroot Beatles for the brilliant night of entertainment you all provided at The Boundary last night in aid of Childrens Liver Foundation. The event raised £1,603 for the foundation, far more than we all anticipated. Many calls have been received today saying what a brilliant event it was. Could you pass on my thanks and congratulations to all concerned. A presentation evening will be arranged in the next few days for the money raised to be handed over.  Hope to see you all again soon.  Best regards, Dave and Jullie Hardy.

Thanks again, Charmagne.


Charmagne Stephenson, Private Party at the Glebe Centre, Crich on 16/1/10

Hello Kevin, I just want to say how much we all enjoyed Rio 5 at my wife's birthday party. They turned up on time, were very polite, very friendly and very obliging. We had great feedback from our guests who all said what a great party it was. The band played a nice mix of music which had a wide appeal. I can't fault them. Thanks for sorting it out and if ever I want another band you will be the first person I contact. Thanks again, Phil.


Phil Ramage (Birthday Party) Grey Goose, Gedling on 27/12/09

Thanks Kev for providing The Beatroot Beatles and Carole DJ for our management dinner in December.  They were absolutely outstanding - everyone was on the dancefloor as soon as they started playing.  Fabulous act!  So good that we would like to book them again for a "do" in February!  Look forward to hearing them again. Heather Jackson PA to the Managing Director.


Heather Jackson, Deb Ltd. Dinner Dance at Mickleover Court Hotel 11/12/09

Kevin, Saturday evening was a great success. Chaser were very professional, on time and set up before my reception started. They sounded great and their choice of music kept the dance floor packed all night. I received many compliments on the success of the evening and almost all
commented on the quality of the band. I'd be happy to have them play at any function. Thanks for your help in all the arrangements. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. Regards Marion Kay.

Hi Kevin, Thank you very much, Katy had a superb birthday party! Riptide were excellent and covered a varied selection of songs, and were very professional. I would certainly recommend them to anyone! Hope you have a good Christmas. Kind Regards, Ann Matthews

Hiya, just to say a big thank you, Armarda and Union Jackson Disco were absolutley brilliant.  Both the band and DJ Carole were so friendly and very entertaining. We would highly recommend them to anyone. People were shouting for 'more'. Our friends are very keen music and concert lovers so that was definitely a good sign. We loved them and they really made the night a perfect end to our wedding day. Everyone loved it. Many thanks Emma and James xxx


Emma & James. Wedding reception at Bestwood Lodge Hotel, Arnold on 14/11/09.

A big thank you to the Beatroot Beatles for a fantastic evening of entertainment. So many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the band and they created such a great atmosphere together with the setting of Tissington Hall. It really completed our wedding day and gave us many great memory’s to treasure. Many thanks once again, Ross & Liz Allerton.

Kev, We had a great night and everyone thought Armarda were brilliant. They were excellent and most enjoyable. We will book them again at the club for sure. Armarda's performance made the night great. Kind Regards, John Hill.


John Hill, Melton Mowbray Rugby Club. Birthday Party 3/10/09

Kevin, 
I just had to contact you to say what a fantastic night it was on Saturday 26th September when The Beatroot Beatles performed at The Masonic Hall, Chesterfield for a charity event. Not only did everyone in the premises enjoy the night but people were actually dancing outside in the streets to the entertainment. I have booked the lads before and seen them on other occasions and will say to anyone who wants a very good nights entertainment that they can't go wrong by having The Beatroot Beatles at their party. These four lads don't just perform they know how to get people to enjoy themselves. Several friends on the night saw Eddie and made serious enquiries about booking them for other events. This basically says it all. The arrangements and organisation were second to none and this made life very easy for me. Once again a great thank you to The Beatroot Beatles and to you Kevin for your assistance.
John Davenport.

Hi, we booked Carole of Union Jackson Disco and The Submarines / Beatroot Beatles for our wedding reception. The 3 together complimented each other so well.  Dan and I had the most amazing time and all of our guests have asked "where did you find them?"  We kept the Beatles as a suprise and it went down a treat, everyone old  and young were shaking their thing!  The service provided by Carole and the boys was both professional and personal.  A special thanks to the boys for learning "our song" and to Carole for playing them later in the night!  Kevin, HUGE thanks to you too!  Your friendliness, effeciency and understanding resulted in a perfect night!  We can't thank you enough and hope to see you again someday soon! Colleen & Dan.

Thank you to Kevin for making arrangements for The Heartbeat Hollies to play at the Rotary Club of Amber Valley Charter Dinner Dance on Saturday evening. Thank you to Tony for bringing along The Heartbeat Hollies to Derbyshire for a great evening of entertainment and dancing. The group gave a very powerful and professional performance. It was wonderful to hear the Hollies' hits, but we were also pleased they did not confine themselves to the Hollies songs and included other popular groups. I was really pleased to see they effectively crossed the generations and we had both the younger and older people on the dance floor. Having initially suggested you could start to wind up after 11.30pm, as previously people were drifting away by then, it is testament to how well received the Heartbeat Hollies were, that the crowd demanded you play on and the dance floor was still packed at midnight! Andrew Loades, Senior Vice President, Rotary Club of Amber Valley.


Andrew Loades, Charter Dinner Dance, Derbyshire Hotel 19/9/09

Hi Kev - hope you enjoyed the weekend as much as we did!! - Thought the Saturday night was the best ever - first time I have ever really been in the Marquee and seen some of the acts - Went in when the Beatroot Beatles were on and I thought they were brilliant - the atmosphere was amazing - I always think after these weekends that I am not doing this again because I feel so exhausted but after seeing the people on Saturday night in the Marquee, everyone having a great time I thought how could I not continue this? Thanks to the Tinsel Band they are brilliant.  Hope everyone on your side was happy.  Thanks once again - will prob see you soon - Take care - Love to everyone - Sue & Paul.


Sue McGonigal (Tom McGonigal Trust Fund) Belper Marquee12/9/09

Hi Kev
 
I can't thank you enough for Saturday the music was amazing both the band and Carole's disco were excellent! Everyone was really impressed and I don't think the dance floor was ever empty at any point. We really really enjoyed it all and folk were asking where we booked it all and so hopefully you may get some enquiries. James is a massive music buff and he is a serious guitar player and he and Lisa thought Armarda were briiliant. I was really chuffed because he wanted a band all along.


Sue Warden (James & Lisa Warden wedding reception) Shottle Hall 5/9/09

The 'Oh Boys' performed at my husbands 70th birthday party and were enjoyed by all. Their extensive play list enabled them to please young and old and got us all on the dance floor. They were very good and I would certainly recommend them. Thank you for sorting it Kevin.


Mrs. Burgoyne. Birthday Party at Belper Rugby Club, 21/8/09.

Hi Kevin
Just a quick note to thank you for all your efforts on making my 50th birthday party such a great and memorable day. The ‘Oh Boys’ that you found and booked for us were absolutely perfect for the age range and taste in music for all at the party. They arrived well in time we discussed what they were going to play and they could not be more helpful, enthusiastic and professional in how they performed all the music in all three ‘sets’ they did for us. Please pass on our thanks to the boys for all their efforts.We would also not hesitate to recommend Jackson Event Management to any of our friends for any function of any type that they are organising. With your professional  input and helpful guidance the whole day went extremely well, once again many thanks for all your assistance. Richard Hamper.


Richard Hamper (Birthday Party Bell & Harp Little Eaton 16/8/09)

Jackson Event Management provided the Beatroot Beatles/Submarines to perform at our wedding reception. Kevin was very professional and easy to deal with, something which was very much appreciated during the stresses of organising a wedding. We had already seen the Submarines perform so knew they were good but we were blown away by the quality of the Beatroot Beatles. Their cover versions were brilliant, all of the guests thought they were fantastic and they got the dance floor rocking. Absolutely cracking set of lads and very much recommended.
Thanks for a great night, Martin and Rebecca.


Martin & Rebecca Grundy. Wedding Reception at the Alison House Hotel, Cromford. 1/8/09

Hi Kevin, Everything went well on Saturday - the entertainment was wonderful - particularly Donna Dale! She is really an act in her own right. Thanks to The Tomkatz and Donna a good time was had by all. Many thanks, Lesley Tovey.


Barron McCann Sports & Social Club Summer Ball, Market Bosworth Hall Hotel on 1/8/09

Hi Kevin, we had a fabulous party and All The Kings Men were great.  They proved to be very popular and one of our friends commented to us that he was thoroughly enjoying it as they were playing the same tracks as he has on his i-pod playlist!!  We received a lot of good comments and none of our guests had a bad word to say about them.  Thank you very much we really enjoyed the entertainment provided.


Sally Daniel- Birthday Party at Pheonix Suite Chesterfield on 13/6/09

Hi, I would just like to thank you for the fantastic band we had on Saturday, RIO 5 were amazing, it took the party a little while to warm up mainly due to the cold outdoor weather but then we all had a great time. Every one enjoyed the band and the selection of music they played went down a treat with everyone, a great bunch of people and great musicians. Many Thanks again to RIO 5.


Steve Morton -Outdoor Gig at Dronfield 6th June 2009,

Myself and Alan want to send our many thanks to you for providing us with excellent entertainment. Everyone said how good the bands were (which we already knew) and so I think it made for a very good evening. We had an excellent day and night and if I could plan it all again I would not change a thing. We had a superb time and we would definitely recommend you all if we are ever asked or involved with organising entertainment for a party etc. So once again many thanks for providing superb bands for the entertainment to our wedding reception. The Beatroot Beatles and the Submarines & Meg are excellent musicians and I can't speak highly enough of your professionalism and talents.Many thanks Kev and take care. Debbie and Alan Peers.


Debbie & Alan Peers (Wedding reception at the Derbyshire Hotel 16th May 2009)

Just a little note to say a big thank you for the fantastic performance ‘The Submarines’ put on at our wedding party. Everyone commented on how good the band were and I think you may have some more bookings. Thanks for learning the songs I asked for they meant a lot. We had a fantastic time! Thanks again. Lee & Luanne.


Lee & Luanne Heeley (Wedding Party Littleover Lodge 8/5/09).

Kev, Steve Diamond’s Buddy Holly tribute went down very well with our audience. A big thumbs up and thanks for saving us at such short notice. Pat Parry.


Pat Parry (Liberation day at Derby Assembly Rooms 7/5/09).

Steve Diamond as Buddy Holly gave a thoroughly entertaining and highly professional performance. His act appeals to all age groups not simply those who remember the Buddy Holly era – in our case under 5s to 0ver 80s! He tailored his act to fit in well with the other activities that contributed to our party and established a good rapport with his audience. He is a friendly person, keen to please, and receptive to requests. We would not hesitate to use him again for events such as weddings, celebrations,anniversaries or parties of all kinds. Thank you very much to you Kevin (excellent organisation of our event) and Steve for a truly wonderful show. Will return for future events. Kindest Regards, Sandy Carter.


Sandy Carter (Golden Wedding Anniversary Empire Rooms, Ashbourne 27/3/09)

'We hired the Beatroot Beatles and the Submarines to play at our wedding reception on November 8th 2008 and we were absolutely blown away with their performances; the Submarines got everyone on the dance floor with all the modern classics and the Beatroot Beatles kept everone there! Thank you so much for making our day go with a bang, all of our guests were full of praise for the band it made the night unforgettable. We would highly recommend Jackson Event Management as they made eveything so easy, all we had to worry about was enjoying the evening! Thank you - we hope you'll be back for the Golden Wedding Anniversary!'
Thanks Kevin, we really did enjoy the night and the band were amazing, thank you!! We hope to see them again, so please keep us informed of any any local gigs and I'll be sure to recommend you to all our friends and family!


Laura and Rob (Mr and Mrs Redfern!) (Wedding reception Barton Marina 8th November 2008)

Dear Kevin,
Saturday night was a great night very well organised and the events and performers were superb especially Amy Whitehouse as it was her first night great. All a credit to your talents and organisation and everyone that helps you. A big thank you Kevin and it's great to see you smiling and beaming with the smile throughout the night.


All the best, Jackie and Gerrard Boxall. (Tinsel Band Belper Marquee Gig, 13th September 2008)

Many thanks

The 'Oh Boys' they were just right for my birthday party, being appreciated by all ages. Thank you Kevin for organising it for me and pass my thanks and appreciation on to them.


Janet Matts, Belper. (Private Birthday Party 13th September 2008.)

Kevin,
Just a quick note to say a very big thank you for the professional manner in which you organised the entertainment for my wives surprise birthday party. I would just like to say that The Beatroot Beatles were absolutely fantastic. In fact, a Beatle fan at the party actually said that they were better than the fab four were. Elvis Pleasley, as you know is a very good friend, and his performance brought the house down. All the comments I received were very positive and all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Once again thank you for a terrific evening that my wife will never forget.


John Davenport. (Chesterfield Golf Club, 6th September 2008)

Thank you so much for a wonderful night last night!! Everything was just perfect, The Submarines (inc. Amy), Beatroot Beatles and Elvis were amazing, I've still got a big smile on my face! Please pass on my thanks to everyone concerned, this will be a night I will remember for the rest of my life all made possible by yourself.
Thank you again.


Lindsey Appleby 27/4/08 (Birthday Party 26/4/08)

Whilst organising a 65th Birthday party for my Father, Kevin provided 1st class entertainment and the help and advice he gave in co-ordinating, preparing a running order and compering the entire evening made our party a truly wonderful night. Thanks Kev, You were great!


Debbie Lockwood - Director, Lockwood Freight Services (November 2007)

Dear Kev,On behalf of Paul, Sue & the rest of the family can I say a big 'Thank You' to you and all the lads for a fantastic Saturday night!! I hope you agree it was a huge success, what a great night we had!! We have had lots of positive feedback from many we have spoken to since. People have been saying they would love a repeat performance next year, which is the ultimate compliment to you for all your hard work!! It was a relief and also satisfying when everything went so well, after all those months of planning and stressing!! We had about 430 people on Saturday night.
