Local DJ Rob Whiteley, 2014

A Superb Valentine Affair - Swing Dance Leeds, (Rob & Helen) started the night with three fantastic dance demonstrations and a great (large) dance class to get people in the mood, Then we were entertained by an awesome performance from 'The Little Big Band' with an electric buzzing atmosphere and a constant full dance floor throughout the night and a super audience of 200 people that made for an Outstanding fundraising event for two really Important charities (Forget Me not Hospice and Martin House Children's Hospice ) I feel honored and privileged to have been asked to be a part of what was the best gig I have been involved with in a very long time!

Had a fantastic time at the Valentines Swing Ball last night, my head and feet are a bit sore but it was worth it!!! A huge Thank you to Paul for organising it, The Little Big Band for the superb music, Rob & Helen of Swing Dance Leeds for getting everyone up dancing.....and to all of you who came along to support Forget me not and Martin House hospices. Can't wait to see how much we all raised!!!! — feeling good!

Headingly Performing Arts Centre, Leeds 2013

What a great Valentine’s Night with Little Big Band! Even though it is very much a big band, the sound was refined and restrained – perfect for our 100 seater venue. The programme was perfectly matched to the event – listening music in the first half and more up-tempo dancing in the second, and dance our audience certainly did! Lovely singing and playing all round, and we want you back again!

Jared and Rachel... a wedding the Yorkshire Dales 2012

This is to thank everyone who played at our wedding for sheer perfection; you were absolutely fantastic and couldn't have done more to make our day magical. Fabulous music, sublime singers (and a surprise guest star on the sax)---what more could one ask for? All our guests loved it and for us you were the cherry on the cake of a very special day. All best wishes, Jared and Rachel.

Just a brief note to formally thank you and the band for such a very enjoyable concert on Saturday last. There have been many, many comments of appreciation for the concert and, almost without exception, the common question has been "When is the next one?" Please thank all the band for me and I hope we can pursuade you to come again in the not too distant future. Many thanks & best wishes.

I saw the band at Morley Town Hall on Saturday and would just like to say how much my partner and I enjoyed it. Absolutely fabulous. Terrific musicianship, wonderful to experience. Thank you so much.

Janet Harrison, Friends Of Morley Literature Festival, 10th June 2009

People have not stopped showering you with praise since Saturday Night. I hope you thought you were all on form - everybody else certainly did.
