The Amethyst Duo - Gypsy Swing Duo Feedback

Wow, what a beautiful evening! Thank you so much for such a wonderful performance. We had a great time! Thanks a lot for your talent and energy.


The duo have been playing at our venue for several years now. We just love their vast range of different instrumental tunes and they are super talented guys!!!! We often receive lots of very positive feedback from our customers whenever they play here. Definitely one our favourite acts here at The Pelican Club and we'll be sure to continue booking them for many more nights to come.

The Pelican Club, Nottingham

We've booked this duo for two high profile events in the last year: Their first appearance took place at our annual goose fair dinner and awards ceremony where they performed a 30 minute set in the break coffee break. It was supposed to be an opportunity for our guests to mingle but everybody stayed in their seats as these two fabulous musicians blew them away with some pulsating gypsy jazz. The second and most recent appearance was part of our 30th anniversary celebrations with German city Karlshruhe. The duo played for 1 hour whilst our guests interacted during the dinner break. Their sound, style, talent and superb range of acoustic instrumentals was simply perfect for the occasion!

Nottingham City Council,

We booked The Amethyst Duo to entertain our colleagues during their tea breaks whilst on shift. The guys conducted themselves in a professional manner from start to finish! They performed a fabulous range of songs from modern pop hits to old school jazzy sounds and our workforce loved it. Thanks!

Gareth Simister, Manchester

We recently booked The Amethyst Duo to entertain a table of 20 for a private booking. Our customers were very quick to comment on how impressed they were with the duos exceptional levels of talent and professionalism. We will definitely book these guys again in the not too distant future!!!!

Matt Short, Nottinghamshire

We booked The Amethyst Duo to perform at the opening ceremony of the Wells Maltings Gallery. We couldn't have asked anymore from them! They looked the part, played the part and carried a suitably high level of professionalism at all times. A pleasure to work with!!!!!

Simon Daykin, Wells Maltings

The Amethyst Duo have made a number of appearances at our restaurant over the past 2 years. They always turn up on time and get on with the job at hand causing us no stress or hassle. They always perform to a very high standard and deliver the perfect song repertoire to create a nice relaxed atmosphere for our diners.

Perkins Bar and Bistro,

The Amethyst Duo stepped in at the last minute due to fill in for another artist. I wasn't quite sure what to expect but they were just perfect for our tapas style venue. It was great to hear something different for a change: lots of great melodies and superb guitar playing! We hope to have them back again soon.

Eschebeche, Nottingham

The Amethyst Duo played at our wedding and were great! They brought exactly the sort of background music we were looking for and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band.

Sean Mendelson, (September, 2020)

We saw you at Judy's 70th birthday bash last Saturday in Southwell and we thoroughly enjoyed your music and would certainly recommend you. You may remember I spoke to you at the end about gypsy swing. Thanks again for a great evening.

Eddie Cornforth,

Thanks for playing at our wedding in Woodborough hall last year. Absolutely brilliant!!!!

Laura and Paul,

We were thoroughly impressed with how these guys swung! They entertained their audience with a full range of 1920's and 30's swing, with some great improvisations of Django as well as a few other surprises. They come totally recommended by us for music venues such as us or for affaires privees!
