Testimonials

Dear Stirling

I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for making our wedding so perfect. You were everything I had hoped you would be and more. We both felt how much you cared to make it the most special day for us and it was. Very grateful to you for being so gracious to our last minute changes and for all your support leading up to the big day. We will sing your name from the rooftops recommending to friends and acquaintances. With deep thanks and appreciation!

Hi Stirling,

We just wanted to thank you for playing at our wedding on the 30th December. You and the rest of the guys were absolutely fantastic and we had no end of comments from guests about how good you were. One of them is even talking about wanting to book you for a party coming up! We really appreciated how flexible you were with the sets and timings and thanks also for coming to the rescue with the music between sets.

We also felt you were extremely professional and friendly on the day, as you have been since we first got in touch with you. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone wanting live music for a party or event.

We just wanted to get in touch to thank you and your band for your utter brilliance at our wedding on 5th May.

As I told you the very first time we spoke, I listened to nearly 500 demos when trying to choose the band and your one just stood out from the pack – I’m so, so glad that it did, because you were outstanding. Even better than we could have hoped for. If we ever get any excuse at all, any thing at all, to book you again I assure you we’ll be straight on the phone.

Also, as a special thank you, I really appreciated the chance to sing with the band, it was a lovely surprise for Karen and I’m so grateful you gave me the opportunity to do it for her.

It was a real pleasure meeting you – your evident ability, but also your sheer professionalism, shone through and we couldn’t have asked for any more. Everyone said how fantastic you were.

If you ever need references, or a testimonial or similar, please do not hesitate to get in touch!

I booked Stirling Austin for my wedding in September. I was looking for something different than a generic DJ and hit the jackpot!

Stirling called me personally as soon as I enquired and was so helpful throughout the whole wedding planning, it felt like I was his only customer. He was also especially reassuring when it came to the first dance. I was so nervous but Stirling sent me recommendations and talked me through the whole process (more than once!)

The band were just fantastic, the dance floor was full at all times and our guests just loved it. The songs were perfect and had my grandparents and youngest nieces both up and dancing! I can’t recommend them highly enough, they made the evening!

Stirling, Just a note to say thank you to you and the band for making our wedding day even more special. You and the band were absolutely awesome, with the set list planned to perfection to coax people onto the dancefloor and then really make them shake a tail-feather with the more funky numbers too!! We’ve had so many compliments and everyone (from grandparents to teenage cousins!) was really impressed by the calibre of the music and your professionalism.

On a personal level, thank you from us both for your help and assistance in the run up to the day and, on the day, for checking the arrangements with us and that we were happy with everything. Many thanks again!

I just wanted to personally say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to you and your awesome band for the amazing performance you gave at our corporate staff do on Friday night!The feedback from all our guests has been really positive and I am so grateful to you for doing such a brilliant job! You are completely professional, understanding, patient and most accommodating and I appreciate everything you did for us to help make our event an absolutely brilliant one!

Dear Stirling,

They say to save the best ’til last and having taken over two months to send thank you cards and emails to our wedding guests we are sending this email to our ‘best guest’ – YOU!!Thank you so much for what was an astounding performance from you and your ensemble, one that will live with us both ’til death us do part!  All of our guests bar none have been overwhelmingly complimentary with their feedback “best wedding band ever”, “The band were amazing” etc.

We are really touched that your diligent and pragmatic approach to planning the night and performing the gig were absolutely top drawer and you delivered a fantastic performance on the night.  Our need was your concern and you exceeded our expectation. Thank you sincerely from the bottom of our hearts, you were incredible. With the best of luck and lots of love-Here’s to you..

Thank you so much to you and the rest of the band for your general awesomeness on Sunday. The chuppah music was beautiful and just how we wanted it. As for the evening – wow, what a show!

Stirling, you have a great voice and all of your musicians were just fabulous. The music was smart, fun and sophisticated – again, just what we wanted, and such a pleasure to dance to live swing and rock and roll played by band who really know the genres. Also, you totally rock for getting on board with The Muppet Show from the start and for orchestrating and playing it perfectly. Kermit would approve. Also Stirling a special thanks to you for all of your hard work organising all of the music, speaking to the Montcalm and so on. Who can believe that months of discussing plugs, stage boxes and The Muppet Show are over? Thanks again for everything!

Thank you so much, you & your band did an absolutely amazing job!! Every single person without exception said how great you were!! A couple of my husbands old singing pals were there too and they’ve got over 70 years in business between them and even they said you were by far the best band they have ever seen! You really made our night and I’m positive the party would not have gone as well as it did without the great job you all did so many many heartfelt thanks to you all.

“Dear Stirling,
A huge thank you to you and the band for creating a fantastic atmosphere at our Corporate Christmas Party last night. We’ve had some wonderful feedback about the event, and you and the band went down a storm. The music was pitched just right and really added a touch of class.It was lovely working together.”

Hi Stirling, I just wanted to pass on my thanks to you and the band for a terrific evening on Friday.  We really could not have picked a better band – you kept us entertained all evening and the feedback I have received from others in the firm has been amazing.  I will certainly bear you in mind for any future events.  Thanks again!!

Thank you thank you thank you so much for playing at our wedding and for being so brilliant. I’ve never seen or heard a better dance floor at a wedding so thank you. You really did help make some absolutely wonderful memories for Darren and me as well as our friends and family. You and the band sounded fantastic and you were very good at getting people dancing and keeping them dancing. I did not want to leave the dance floor all evening. You also got our first dance spot on. Thanks for making such wonderful memories for us.

 

Our anniversary party on Saturday night at the inner Temple was a resounding success.You seemed to read the needs of our guests so well – all 185 of them – comprised of 3 generations – and yet you knew how to provide exactly the right music at the right time. This is no mean feat and you saw the response you got!! A friend of ours wrote that she had rarely seen so many of us on the dance floor.You were again so right in recommending that we have a 7 piece band and a female singer as well as yourself. We cannot thank you enough!

We booked Stirling and his band for the Morgan Motor Company Gala Dinner in August of this year. It was a black tie event for 600 people and these guys packed the dance floor from the moment they started playing. It was the perfect repertoire for the audience and all performed brilliantly.
Stirling was lovely to work with right from the first contact and nothing was too much trouble. He took the stress out of all the arrangements and we knew we were in safe hands.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.Sarah Baldwin, Morgan Motor Company

Stirling,Wow! You were wonderful. We have had so many messages saying how excellent the evening was – so many people loved the band, and we can’t thank you enough. The music, as you know full well, is such an important part of the evening. We could not have hoped for anything better. I think Rach and I said to you on the night that we would love to dance to your band again.Really Stirling, you did such a wonderful job.

Just to say a big ‘Thank you’ for you and your band, it was superb. Everyone commented on you all and I know one particular guest said they had never been to a better wedding reception and took your card with view to a possible booking in the future.It was all perfect, you created the right mood and got guests involved with just the right amount of encouragement. It made me very happy to see people dancing (especially my brother who I don’t think I’ve seen dance for many, many years!) and enjoying themselves that evening. So, once again a big thank you and we won’t hesitate in recommending you to others looking for similar entertainment.I particularly loved the ‘You do something’ track – another great opportunity to dance with my new husband and dance like no-one was watching
