With over a 120 strong repertoire, the great thing about Toni is she can do anything from a back ground jazz and blues set to a upbeat funky pop, soul, R&B and disco set that has EVERYONE up to dance.

Iíve just spoken to the centre and theyíve been really impressed with the calibre of acts that have been on the events so far. I actually went over myself yesterday and watched a bit of Bailey J and I thought they were really good.

"The Bailey J band went down very well, I had chance to see a little of these guys and thought they were perfect for the evening. Both their music and dress code were idea for the Black Tie evening." Young Farmers ABM May 2011
I just wanted to thank you and your band so much for playing at our wedding last Monday. You were absolutely brilliant! We've had soooo many comments about how great you all were and how so many people, who generally don't get up to dance, couldn't sit down! My brother, in particular, was bowled over! I've never seen him move so much in my life!
We were so pleased that you were able to play for us as it really did make the day extra special.
Hope your wedding plans are going well and you had a great new year.
See you in July at Tims wedding!

The band totally made the night and my dad could talk of nothing else the next day. Nearly everyone I spoke to remarked on how good you all were and it was great to have a mix of old and new tracks to get everyone up dancing at some stage in the night. It was also nice to see such an energetic and lively band, who so obviously love what they do for a living.
Thanks ever so much for making the long journey for us - I'll definitely be in touch again should the need arise and will be recommending you to others.

Thanks so much for Saturday night - you and the band were fabulous. I have received an email of thanks this morning from the client who referred to you guys as "fantastic"! I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Where do I start?! You & Dave's jazz duo blew us away; your incredible voice as I walked down the aisle will stay with us forever. A million thanks for being so flexible and moving from the lawn to play inside - we knew you can never trust the Scottish weather.... At night, you were simply phenomenal. The dance floor was packed from the minute you stepped on stage until the minute you were finally allowed to leave amidst the chants from the crowd. You know you have a special band when your wedding photos are circulating and you find the band in as many photos as the bride!
Thank you for being a part of our amazingly amazing day.

I've been meaning to do this for ages - I just wanted to say a big Thank You! for playing at our wedding at Crabwall Manor on 10th Aug. Liam and I had a fantastic evening thanks to you and the guys in the band! You were brilliant and so many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it! I don't think Liam and I were off the dance floor for most of the night!
Please thank the rest of the guys in the band for us! Hope you are well!
Many thanks for performing at Clare & Dave's wedding reception, and help make it such a wonderful day and evening. You have the most fantastic voice and both you and your band have an ability to get people's attention, and up onto the dance floor and enjoy themselves. A lot of people were impressed!
Wishing you all the best for the future
Maggie & Adrian Walton-Cotsworld
Just want to thank you for all your hard work, my guests have been extremely pleased with all your performances, your great sense of humour and your energy on stage, and I look forward to booking you again soon.

I have used The Bailey J Band over the last 4 years for numerous events and have constantly been impressed with their professionalism,reliability, flexibility and ability to create an ambient atmosphere that perfectly suits the event. Toni James is a singer of sublime talent who enchants all with her stunning voice and charm.
Events Manager, Hill Dickinson LLP
The Bailey J band played at our Repton School Leavers' Ball on Saturday 28th June 2008. They were fantastic, there is no other word for them. Very obliging, funny, entertaining, patient and played just the right kind of music to suit 17-70 year olds. The Headmaster said in his letter of thanks that the evening was, 'outstanding and a tremendous success', the band certainly contributed to that greatly.
Please thank them for me and I will certainly pass on their name to the many people that have already asked for it.
With thanks again and kind regards
