Edward Russell, Sheffield

“…Thank you so much for providing music for our charity ball over the weekend, the band were great and had everyone up dancing from the first set. I was initially worried about finding a band that could cover all basses musically speaking but you guys played the perfect set. Thank you so much for being apart of it… ”

Amelia Crossan, York Theatre Royal, York

“…One of the best nights out I’ve had in a long time! I saw Downtown first play at The Blues Bar in Harrogate when I was on holiday and decided to book them for our corporate event in central London. After we had our meal, the band came on and blew the roof off, everyone went mental for Downtown and had such a great night!… “

Bill Blackwell, London

“…Hi Guys, thank you so much for playing at my Daughters 21st on Saturday. Everyone loved the variety of music you played and you really got the crowd going. Even us oldies got up and had a dance! There really was something for everyone amongst your set. It’s my Husband’s 60th next year and we’d love to have you back!… “

Sally Lacey, Blackpool

“…We hired Downtown to play at our Christmas Party for the managing directors of our company and we weren’t disappointed! The live music started a little later than we had hoped for as the evening meal and speeches over ran, but thankfully Downtwon were very flexible in their timings and went on to perform a stunning 90min set. Everyone commented on how good they were, we definitely want them back again next year!… ”
