People are talking about Double Down! Here's what some of them are saying:
"Double Down put on an incredible show at our wedding. They entertained us all night, opening with jazz and moving into many great swing tunes. They are each very talented musicians and John has a wonderful voice. Together they have a terrific energy. You can tell that the band is having fun - and it's contagious. All the guests, from the youngest to the oldest, got up to danced and the band kept us dancing all night long! My father, a long time jazz fan, absolutely loved Double Down. We have received many compliments on how fabulous the band was. They were also very professional and all nice guys. We are so happy that we had them play at our wedding. Thanks for making our wedding reception such a great party!" ~Christa - NY, NY
"One of my favorite new bands, Double Down performs with an infectious energy, the kind that you can't help but tap your feet to. It's hard to believe that such a young group of gentlemen can have so much talent, but they made a believer out of me. I can't wait to see where they go in the future, as I'll be sure to follow." ~Tom - NY, NY
