Panoptic (As a Duo)

"Thank you so much for playing. The music was absolutely spot on and so many people said how good you were - one person was stood next to Ben saying my god and she's picking up another instrument, amazing! We had such a lovely day, thank you for being part of it!"
Ben & Katie, Wedding, London

"What a charming pair, thanks for playing Feeling Good ad hoc for me!"

"What can I say? Just brilliant! Still gob smacked that you don’t have any CDs. Soon as you do please let me know so I can distribute amongst my demanding friends! Thanks for creating the perfect atmosphere for Claudia’s engagement party. And thanks for agreeing to play outside without any warning. Hope to see you soon. It’s my sons 21st in a few months, I’ll be in touch!"

Panoptic (As a Quartet) 

"You did such a great job. Everybody commented on your unique style and lots of our guests have been asking for your contact details for future parties and events."
Joe Winpenny - ProFitMe, Personal Fitness Investment

" The search for a band for our bar and restaurant was not easy...until we met Panoptic! Their repertoire is extensive, stylish and probably the best I have heard for a very long time. The modern touch given to their jazz music as well as the personality of each musician has transformed the atmosphere of our bar. They are very talented and will always bring something special to the place they play. "
Clement Sargeni – Deputy General Manager, Hotel du Vin 

" We first saw Panoptic at a charity gala at the Grange St Paul's and loved the way that they had the whole room capticated, we HAD to have them at our wedding. As I had already had such a great experience in the run up to the wedding I knew that I didn't have to worry about them on the actual day and I was right. They gave the start of our evening reception a really funky edge but still managed to appeal to all of our guests (from 3 to 83!). Thank you to you all x "
Joanne Elliott, Wedding, London
