Recent reviews, thank you so much!

I want to officially thank Jo and the boys for making my wedding reception a wonderful night at Beamish Hotel, my guests loved it too. Such a genuine lovely gang & it was so good to see you mixing and eating with my guests too.

Being a music addict and having professional musician's in the family, a cheesy DJ was never going to do. So when I saw Jo at a friends wedding, I knew then I had to have them playing at my wedding. With a mix of old, new, rock and pop it just lifted the whole atmosphere, the guitarists are awesome.

So instead of spending wedding budgets on bouncy castles and photo booth's, book Jo's band instead. Believe me you won't regret it, it makes the night so special.

Had Jo James Band perform at our wedding on 10th July. What a fantastic night. We've seen the band play in our local a few times so knew they were good. All of our guests really enjoyed them and we were all up dancing away. Thank you very much!

Thanks so much, you were A-MAZ-ING! I can't imagine our wedding without you, it was a blast! The blisters on my toes from dancing
all night were so worth it! A special mention goes to your "3 fingered" bassist, what a cracking job! Special thanks for playing Everlong,
it was so special! Much love and you will definitely see us again!!!

Local Northeast band, fantastic talented musicians and Jo with her warm sultry tones - she's amazing. A great mix of material and their
sound is incredible. Don't take my word for it, visit their website and read their reviews, booking info and much more."

"This is just a quick note to say THANKS SO MUCH to Jo James Band and please pass on my very best to the band!
What a wonderful evening we had last Saturday with Jo James Band rocking the Civic Centre for our Conference. We
had colleagues and friends from all around the UK and parts of the US. And they all had a fantastic time and said so!
I think the music is still in our ears and the dancing still in our feet :-) A brilliant Newcastle night to showcase
Newcastle to the world! A thousand thanks."

"Just wanted to say thank you from myself and Elaine for playing at our evening reception on good Friday. The feedback from
our guests was brilliant, with many people commenting on how good the "Jo James band" were. It was nice to see so many
people dancing the night away right from you starting your set. And I'm pretty certain some of them are wanting to see you again.

We look forward to seeing you in the not too distant future, keep up the brilliant work!"

Keith & Elaine, Wedding at Headlam Hall

To the wonderful Jo James Band, Michael and I would like to thank you for making out evening reception extra special. Everyone
loved the music and even our parents got up and danced! Jo not only has a fabulous voice,but she made a beautiful bridesmaid
too! Thanks to the guys for being so patient and calm when one of the guests rolled onto their equipment during the first set.
Anyone who loves music will adore this band!!!!

"Hi guys. I saw you play the Tavern in Washington last year and I've got to say, you are the best local band I've ever
seen. I'd definitely recommend everyone getting out there to see you guys play. Great energy and a brilliant front
woman. Hope to see you play sometime again soon xx"

Joanne Thexton, re the New Tavern, Washington

"My husband & I were looking for a band to play at our wedding at Headlam Hall. Friends who are great followers of local
bands introduced us to The Daisy Hill in Sacriston where a lot of local bands have gig nights. This is where we first heard
Jo James Band. We knew they were the band for us and what a fantastic evening we had on the evening of our wedding
with Jo doing our "1st dance" it was brilliant. Since then we have seen Jo many times at different venues in the Northeast
region (We are Jo James Groupies now!)

When my stepson and his fiancé named the date for their wedding, they too wanted Jo to perform at their evening
celebrations at The Swan in Billingham. This time Jo had a new line up from when she played for us at our wedding. They
were good before but they are even better now fantastic lead & bass guitarists and an amazing drummer and Jo's voice
is even better. A great mix and brilliant sound. 3 encores they received at my Stepson's wedding and the feedback from
everyone was great.

If you are looking for a band for your special occasion book Jo James Band NOW!! Thanks Jo, Lee, Roger & Sean
long may you reign".
