Thank You, the "Outcast Jazz Band " made the event.
I have received nothing but praise and compliments about the music I chose
for our 50th Anniversary.
From the Senator and his wife " We haven't danced to music like this since
O Henry ballroom", to the bartender who froze for a minute or two and said
"I haven't heard music like this in 30 years". So thanks again, I would not
hesitate to use you in the future.......

wanted to let you know that your band was AWESOME at
the Windy City Lindy Exchange 5 on Friday, November 7th! It's so much nicer
to have a live band when
you're dancing but to have a band as talented and swingin' as you were just
makes the entire experience so much better! So, thanks for such an enjoyable

Saw your group at Hackney's this past

I definitely want to
catch you guys again!

"I want to thank you guys for being the most awesome band
ever. I really believe that the band makes or breaks a wedding and you guys sure
made mine and Ryan's
one that people are still talking about (six months and going strong
on band flattery). My calves were so sore from dancing that I had a hard time going down
the stairs at
our hotel on our honeymoon for the first few days!"

"You were unbelievable! I wanted to thank
you for such an amazing night - our wedding reception was even better than
I had ever hoped it could be thanks to the fabulous OJB.
Our friends and family have not
stopped raving about the "great!" "fabulous!" "where did you ever
find them?" band - we are definitely fans for life and are looking
seeing you guys play live again soon."

"Thanks for making our wedding simply the best. I swear
every guest has either e-mailed us or called remarking '...ohmigosh and that BAND!' Everyone was absolutely raving about the music, they
all loved every note you played.
You all are completely awesome."
Colleen Loftus & Jim Beatty
Three Arts Club
"Someone pointed out to us that even though the room was
relatively small, your volume didn't overpower anyone, and it was still possible for
people to have a comfortable
conversation while the band was playing. Your enthusiasm for
the music is so infectious, even the most tone-deaf person can't help but be moved to
tapping their feet.
Bottom line is, you guys fulfilled every expectation and beyond."

"Man, what can we say except 'you guys rocked the house'!
We can't tell you how many people have told us you took the celebration to another level.
Thanks for everything."

We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed
everything you all did at our wedding. We received so many compliments. A band
goes such a long way for setting the tone
at weddings, and you guys were
great. Thanks again for everything.

"Hi - last night was the first time I have seen your band
play. . .and definitely not the last!!! In about two songs, you guys became my favorite
live swing band! I spent several
numbers trying to think of an occasion I could fabricate
to hire you. . .I was close to asking random people to marry me, just to have a wedding reception!
Thanks for a great, great evening!"

"You are truly an awesome bunch and the compliments about
the band were abundant. You guys are great and I look forward to another event where you can let it rip and we can dance the

"Caught your show last night at Blue Note . . . .WOW! You
guys were really swingin! I was floored to turn the corner to find a 17-piece band stacked in the corner of the Blue Note. Thanks for a great
night of entertainment. . . and from the looks of the crowd, you guys should play public gigs more often!"

"Thank you all for the spectacular performance and for
making our wedding reception an event to remember for a lifetime. As you may know from the response of the crowd, the guests loved your
music and they went out of their way to tell Catrina and I how much enjoyment they got from listening and
dancing to your sound. One person said that it looked like the band was having just as much fun, if not more, than
