"Nothing validates a swing dance more than the thrill and excitement of a big band, and at last night's swing dance with the Compaq Big Band it couldn't have been more evident by dancers’ reaction to their performance. Every carefully selected song was treated with deep respect that a great work of art deserves. The Compaq Big Band delivers this music in such a way that it reflects the same impact on dancers of today that it did 70 years ago when it was originally written. Nothing can compare to 21 musicians in a band all in syncopation to perfection. It is evident that these tremendously talented musicians have adopted the same skills as "The Big Phat Band". At the end of the night, which everyone wished would never come, we all felt that we had shared an experience that was true to the spirit of swing. Everyone is already eagerly looking forward to your next performance with us! Thanks Compaq Big Band for a fantastic night!

"The American Museum in Britain was lucky enough to host the Compaq Big Band on their 2006 UK tour. What an afternoon – they simply blew everyone away! Never before, or since, had we the pleasure of hosting such fabulous music performed to such a high standard. People are still talking about it. The sooner CBB returns to the UK the better!"
