"The Silver Ghosts superb performances pack the place out every time they perform here at St Martin in-the-Fields. We love the wonderful 1920s 30s 40s atmosphere they evoke, and anyone lucky enough to book them would be certain of a high spirited swinging good time!"


"Thank you again for performing such a wonderful set for us at The Savoy last night. You were exceptional and I had people telling me all night how impressed they were with you."


"The Band were great fun, and perfect for the Great Gatsby theme!"


"I wanted to say that the band and [dance teacher] Rosario were absolutely brilliant.  We’ve never had so many people dance at this event before."


" I want to thank you all for the brilliant show you have done. So many people loved you and they have appreciated your passion and talent. I really hope to work with you in future. Please extend my congratulation to all the rest of the band."

“Great performance by The Silver Ghosts, who delighted a large audience at the bandstand in Greenwich Park on Sunday afternoon.”

"They provided hot swing from the Golden Era of Jazz all night at our weekly Friday swing night. They created such a great atmosphere with plenty of patrons swing dancing along to the music. I intend to book them for future events at Servant Jazz Quarters, they are a very popular choice of band for this night."
Alice Passey - Managing Director, Servant Jazz Quarters

"They play great up-beat Swing Jazz that is an ideal tempo to dance to. The Silver Ghosts have played for our swing dance nights and our dance classes at The Salisbury Hotel Pub in North London. Their song choices represent a fantastic selection of 1920s to 1940s Hot Jazz. They also have a very friendly and easy to liase with team that is always well turned out."
Gaia Fachinni - Event organizer, Mouthful o' Jam
