Hi Simon,
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the rest of the band for playing at our wedding on Saturday. We absolutely loved all the dancing and music, it was fabulous.

Dear Jane and all of Jigworks,
Thank you so much for stepping in and playing at our Harley Road Street Party. It was another great success and I have had word back from many of the party goers how much they enjoyed the dancing and the music. Jane, they all thought you a great caller.

Hi Simon,
Belated thanks to you all for playing at our Burns Night recently. It was a great evening, and we were thrilled to have Jigworks playing for us. We raised over £3,600 for our group, which is an amazing amount of money and will be put to good use for sure. Please pass on my thanks to all of the band members – and special thanks to Fran for calling, she certainly had her work cut out with our guests – and managed it perfectly. Thank you once again. Best regards, Richard.

I hired Jigworks and Fran for my 40th birthday party and it was a perfect evening. The band and Fran were fabulous- they received lots of compliments. One couple said they were the best ceilidh band they had seen. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening and we danced all night. I highly recommend hiring them for a very entertaining evening.
Thanks again,

To the Jigworks Band. Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. Everyone thought that you were excellent and we appreciated you enabling us to achieve some excellent baskets! We’ll recommend you to everyone.

We and our friends and family had such fun at Freeland Hall in November ceilidh dancing along to your music. It was magical and unforgettable, bringing everyone together like that. Thank you for being excellent and lovely people too! All the best for 2020!
Jess and Tom (Wedding at Freehand Hall)

A really big thank you from us all for a fabulous night of music. Several people came up to us and said how good you all were. It really made for a lot of dancing especially by my grandchildren who had never experienced a barn dance before. They were hooked. Thank you too for Fran for being an excellent caller and getting everyone involved. It makes such a difference. With very best wishes to you all.

We would like to say a HUGE thank you to all of you from Jigworks who helped make our wedding reception the absolutely perfect end to our wedding day! Pete did an absolutely brilliant job controlling the crowd and the music you all played was superb. It was a fantastic end to the day and a very enjoyable way of being seen away at the end of the night too. We hope to attend another of your ceilidhs in future!
Hannah and Steve (Wedding at Combe Manor Barns)

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the barn dance on Saturday night – the tunes were lovely, and played with a very clear and infectious rhythm which made them easy to dance to. The caller most ably tailored the dances and the instructions to the age and experience of the party goers. For the first time I got to enjoy the brilliant, moving experience of being swung fast by my life partner of 21 years! – thanks very much.
Lorraine (Wedding Anniversary at Bampton Village Hall)

Simon – Many thanks to you and your band again for a magical set on Saturday. It made for the perfect relaxed, festival / country atmosphere I wanted and I was pleased your guys seemed to enjoy it too!
Robbie (Birthday Party at Cross Bargain Farm, Kingston Lisle)

Hi – Just wanted to email to say thank you for playing at our wedding, you were awesome and judged the mood just right!
Thanks again, Evelyn (Wedding in Wesley Memorial Church Hall, Oxford)

Splendid news Simon, I am very pleased that Jigworks will be there as that means the event will go with a swing.

I hear from Karen Smith that you are brilliant.

Dear Simon and Jigworks
Thank you all so much for a fantastic evening for Clare’s 21st birthday party. You were a brilliant band and caller – not fazed by anything – shortage of space and everyone wanting to dance!!! Everyone had a great time and I think there are lots of converts to the dancing – many of the young people hadn’t ever done it before. I hope you enjoyed the evening and were not too exhausted having to play virtually non stop!!
Thanks you again,
Sally and John Matthews (21st Birthday)

I have been given your contacts details by someone who really enjoyed one of your barn dances
Nadine Hanbury

Simon, Please can you pass on my thanks to the band for their playing and calling on Saturday night at the SBS Burns Night supper ceilidh. You were truly awesome, and made the evening really special for our guests. The event was a bigger success than we could have hoped for, so we are really pleased. Thanks once again, and hope to meet you all again in the future.

I had an email from the May Fair Committee in Ecchinswell the other day.  The band proved to be so popular and successful last year that I have been asked if there is any chance they can play again
