Reviews

Francesca has a voice that you can rely on, she’s mesmerising, always on key, and she sets a feeling of luxury to an event. I chose Francesca due to her roots in Jazz, her Italian heritage (I work for Dolce & Gabbana) and her glamorous look. She made the event work, she had the crowd singing along and dancing and fulfilled every part of the brief – a consummate professional. I would strongly recommend booking Satin Jazz for your next event, whether corporate, wedding or at your business.

Francesca performed at our wedding. It was so fun and they also learnt and performed an amazing version of our favourite song! Such talented musicians who really showed us they’re willing to go the extra mile!
