Hi Lissa, Cant thank the jets enough for an amazing evening , Jamie and myself spent ages trying to find the right band that would tick all the boxes and you were excellent in every way. Your ceilidh sets was great and our guests from abroad loved kicking their heels up the various dances that you played.

Janet and Jamie Dickson - 28th Sep 2012

I just wanted to thank all of the Jets for your brilliant performance at our wedding on the 12th October . We could not have asked for anything more from the band. Our first dance meant a lot to us so and Lissa, your rendition of Adeles make you feel my love nearly had us both in tears. All of our guests raved about the band so I am sure you will be receiving many more bookings from our friends and family.

Dear Lissa, Darren and I would like to thank you for playing at our wedding at solsgirth house.
