  1. Anniversary Party

    We all think the day was a great success and I think your choice of songs was just right for the occasion and our age group. Hope to book you again as it was such a delight.

    What a fantastic evening we had at Seahouses Golf Club on Friday. Right from the off Damaris and the band created a fabulous vibe. The ‘twist’ on the modern songs sung as ragtime were excellent, with one of my favourites, Celina Dion’s classic “My Heart Will Go On” been outstanding. Everyone without exception loved the evening. Thank you

    ·Dance – June 2017
    Damaris Jean’s Ragtime Rewind provided the entertainment at our Saturday Night Dance during the Barnard Castle 1940s Weekend and proved to be an excellent choice. Damaris Jean was a good communicator prior to the event, sending a suggested playlist and agreeing the timing and programme well in advance. Appropriate recorded music was provided between sets and we enjoyed the varied programme of dance tunes which included something for everyone! Instrumental and vocal quality was of a very high standard. The band certainly has a following as tickets were booked early on by people who had enjoyed their performances in other venues. We had great feedback after the event from members of the audience. We would definitely recommend

  4. Kevin Maxted – Private Party
