“Marimba Jam are fantastic! We booked these guys for our cocktail hour at our wedding, and we have to say it was one of the highlights of the day. It set the tone and straight away guests were up dancing and enjoying a few drinks and canapés while the band performed. The band were really polite and friendly, they were flexible after we changed the start time a few times, and they knew exactly what songs to put on for our wedding guests to get the party started. So So happy we booked Marimba Jam for our wedding, I’d definitely recommend them!”
