September 2017... "Yes sir, they can boogie!
The room was set up like a nightclub with black table cloths, candles and mood lighting. Anyone sitting at the long tables arranged in a semi-circle beyond the dance-floor could see the stage with the grand piano looking, well, rather grand actually. The music starts and straightway the audience is captivated. Four singers, brass and sax section, guitars and bass with drums central to the stage. We know it’s going to be a great evening, and we are not disappointed. It’s ‘Boogie Me’ for goodness sake! A wonderful evening of entertainment with a song for everyone. Ray Charles, Dusty, Amy, they’re all here. And if at first you don’t think you are going to dance (and you are wrong, by the way) you can just sit and watch the show. OK loads of bands can play the tunes but they don’t all put on the show that we’re seeing from these guys. It’s pure entertainment from start to finish. So if you are one of a crowd or on your own you are going to have a great time. You won’t be in your seat for long, believe me. And it’s not just on-stage that they show their professionalism. Booking was simple and straightforward and we found them most helpful & courteous from planning through to the end of their performance. Just brilliant. We were well and truly boogied and our guests absolutely loved it!

"It was AMAZING FAB MARVELLOUS!!!!!! Thank you, thank you Boogie-Me. Someone has already asked me about you. Super fantastic! Everyone was fab! The Happy Song was out if this world!!!! xxx Katie - organiser of the 'Fanciful Fling' June 2014 Charlton-On-Otmoor Village Ball." (We think Katie enjoyed it!)
"You were all magnificent on Saturday (IMPS Ball, Oxford November 2013). Everyone who was there loved it as you could tell from the number of people dancing from the first number to the last. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and maybe we could do something together another time. Thank you very much. Debbie"
"Really enjoyed your gig at Ox-Fest on Friday (July 2013), as did our friends from Belgium. You all looked as though you had a good time. (Claire Parry)"
"Thank you to everyone in Boogie Me last night for putting on such a fabulous performance in aid of FollyFest (Gospel Concert, June 2013)! Not only were the performances note perfect but the beauty of the church lit up by candlelight made it a truly special night. Thank you also for the many hours you spent, loading and un-loading, cabling and un-cabling, checking and re-checking - not seen by the public but appreciated very much. Thank you. Mel, Fiona, Graham, Gerry and Simon"
"Fantastic evening at Randwick Village Hall tonight performing for the fab Kris & Robs birthday bash!"
"What complete stars you are! What a fantastic night - I loved every minute - thank you all so much for playing for Hope & Aid Direct.....please can we have you again next year? :-) " Sarah O
“The Boogie Me gig we attended was enjoyable and great fun - thank you! It was impossible not to dance, jiggle about or tap your toes to the music, and the band engaged the audience brilliantly. The girls looked beautiful and their solos were knock-out... what a smooth and professional performance - it left us all calling out for more!
We would love to see Boogie Me again or book them for our next big public event” Helen J (Stanford-in-the-Vale)
“I dragged my husband up to dance as soon we got there and heard the music – fab beats to jive to” Katie H (Banbury)
"Well mate what can I say ?
... the band was absolutely fabulous on Saturday, each of you really did make my birthday night the great success that it was and I am most sincere when I say that it far exceeded any expectations that I may have had. It was the best 65th party I have ever been to, in fact it is the only 65th party I have been to, the choice of music and the level of your performance was amazing.
I went to the club yesterday afternoon and every single person either told me how great they thought you were, or failing that they had been told by others how great you were. Not only was it the professionalism of the performance that impressed people but also the demeanour of every single band member, you were all so gracious, you ingratiated yourselves with everyone who was there, I will be indebted to you all forever.
On a personal note I must thank you Nick for the massive effort you put in to the logistics of the night that enabled you to achieve such a perfect evening, and to each of you let me say that as an ex-performer I fully appreciate the amount of time and effort that go in to rehearsing to achieve the results you did on Saturday.
In conclusion thank you for allowing me to perform Romeo and Juliet with you... I loved it, it’s just as well that I am typing this as I am welling up, and if I were talking to you all I would be a gibbering idiot right now.
I hope to see you gig in the future and it would be great to see you get the success you undoubtedly deserve, thank you all so much for your efforts they are so appreciated." Syd (Essex) after his 65th Birthday party
"I LOVE Boogie Me! I would definitely book them for any event I was holding.. there is such energy in their performance and you can't help but get up and boogie with them. Seeing them is a fantastic evening out." Helen E (Wantage)
“We could hear the beat as we approached the hall. I thought it would be a small gathering of friends and family. What a surprise!
A Fantastic line up tightly orchestrated by a superb pianist. A wonderful performance by a whole range of musicians with 3 great gals at the front! You couldn't help but boogie!
Brilliant…brilliant…brilliant…. 'The Commitments' have returned!” Clare D (Oxford)
“Saw BM at Faringdon Arts Festival in 2011, they were awesome! Great music, a joy to listen to....hope to hear more of them.” Ruth W (Bicester)
“When we are going out for the evening to listen and dance to ‘Boogie Me’ we know we are in for a great time. The music arrangements are brilliant – the singing is first class and visually they are fab-u-lous. I would gladly recommend them for any celebration.” Lorraine S
"We hired Boogie Me for our Christmas Party in 2010 and were not disappointed. They played a variety of music, to suit everyone’s tastes, and in no time at all had a lot of people up and dancing! Would definitely recommend them and would use them again without a doubt. They would suit any type of event and were very competitive in price." (Ange, ERM)
"Thank you very very much for a superb evening on Saturday. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves especially the French. I'm sure they would love you to visit them sometime, maybe in 2013 when we take a group over to France.
Lots of good comments from our Twinning committee. Always guaranteed a brilliant evening when we know you are playing." (Jeanie, Faringdon Twinning Committee)
