About Benoit Viellefon    



Thanks for playing at my birthday party.
You were amazing, the music was brilliant and you are all very talented.
Madonna (her birthday party)

I love your music, you were absolutely fabulous, you made the evening.
Annie Lennox (NYE at the Wolseley)

Thank you very much for playing for us.
Prince Andrew (Duke of Edinburgh Awards at Mansion House)

Fantastic music and perfect stage aesthetic for a ballroom swing dance event. Benoit and his Orchestra look and sound great, and brought their wonderful energy to Nighthawks at London Walthamstow Assembly Hall. Highly recommended and much loved by a room full of 500 dancers!
Richard Pucci - NIGHTHAWK Swing Dance Festival director.

Dear Benoit, Thank you so much for playing at my recent birthday party. your style of music suited the occasion and the beautiful setting perfectly.
Ron Dennis CBE (Mac Laren F1)

You were staggering and everyone was raving about You. What an incredible weekend!
Snow Boy (Festival Curator - Vintage festival 2016)

I just wanted to say an enormous thank you to you and the orchestra. Your set was absolutely fantastic and bought the weekend to the perfect conclusion. As always, it was a pleasure to listen and dance to you, and the reception at the end was well deserved. We will look forward to hearing you again soon and to welcome you back to Oxford for the Oxford Lindy Exchange 2016 if not before!
Matt (Oxford Lindy Exchange)

Your band is really good! Most of my friends dance to latin or African music. They all found it very refreshing to hear your style and I had many comments of how good you were. By the way, I picked up a copy of Mon Amour and it's really well recorded and played. I like your compositions and I wish you well in progressing your band. I think you are at the leading edge of a new music fashion and you should exploit that! Merci beaucoup pour une excellente soirée et votre très gentil attention.
Adam Bennett (birthday party)

THANK YOU for Saturday!!! We really hope you enjoyed filming with us as much as we did with you all, you were all a joy to work with and it will make a brilliant episode.
Victoria Howarth (Producer BBC Television London Factual)

It was lovely to meet you at the Oxford Lindy Exchange. I wanted to drop you a note to thank you and the band for helping make the event such a success. I'm sue you could tell by the reception how much the dancers loved the music, and it was the perfect note to end the weekend on. I know we would love to welcome you back to Oxford in the future.
Mathew Ellacott (Oxford Lindy Exchange)

I have just ordered 2 copies of your latest CD. I already have your first 2 CD releases and think they are fantastic (please read my reviews of them on by my review name of SF). I have seen you a number of times at The Candlelight Club and you have been excellent every time.
Kevin Wheeler

Thanks for the fantastic show at the Rivoli Ballroom on saturday. The floor was heaving with dancers and the temperature like a sauna. You are one of the best band we've had ever.
Ken (Promoter - Rivoli Ballroom)

Benoit and His Orchestra perfectly depict the mood of our recently launched Supper - Club at The Arts Club, their performance of French jazz intertwined with other well-chosen classics from the 20s, 30s and 40s are delivered with a sophisticated charm that is rare to find.
S.W. Director of Music & Member Events (The Mayfair Arts Club)

Just a quick note to say thank you. Benoit and the boys were amazing on Friday… I have had nothing but compliment and to hear people who have been in the company for over 13 years say that it was the best party ever, I personally couldn't have done it without the charisma of the band and the great entertainment they provided.
Audrey Nipah (Seymour Powell)

Benoit and His Orchestra are our go to band for any event with a vintage theme. Time over they have always impressed guests during drinks receptions and dinners. Not only do they sound the part, they look the part.
Daniel Smith - (Manager - The Troxy -

The lindy hop evening at EWZ Stattkino Festival was a great success and was sold out! People where really happy with your music. It was really nice meeting you and I definitly get back to you if we have further events where we can hire you in Switzerland.
Ursula Ledergerber (


Just wanted to say a big thank you for your brilliant Parisienne performances on Saturday night! They were really spectacular and felt so magical outside in the Courtyard on a summer’s night.
Imogen Willet - Director of Royal Academy of Arts London

World Class! It's been a long time since I heard a band that good
Clarke Peters (American Actor, singer, Musical Director)

Thanks to the band my party was a triumph.
Lady Antonia Fraser (Writer / Nobel Prize)

THANK YOU so much again for yesterday. You were all delightful to spend time with and super professional - and most importantly really amazing players.
Sarah Bridge - Music Supervisor on the film SUMMERLAND (2018 with Gemme Aterton)

You were magnificient, just what we needed for the scene, and saved us a lot of time.
David Blair - BAFTA award winning film director (Hurricane 2018)

You were the best band to listen to and most importantly to dance to at Twinwood festival 2015, an instant hit on the dancefloor. PLease come back next year.
Twinwood festival 2015

It has been a pleasure to work with Benoit and his band. They gave susch a fantastic performance; Benoit’s rapport with the audience created a great atmosphere. We received a lot of positive feedback from many of our regular customers who have requested that we book the band again soon!
Rebecca Stewart - Cadogan Hall manager

It was a fantastic night and all the guests loved your performance which was a big part of the success of the night! You and your band played a wonderful set, everyone danced (which was not expected as it was a diner party) and we had the best time. You also looked great in your 1930/40 outfits!!!
Jeannette Smith, Leigh Johnson (private party for Rock band: Skunk Anansie)

Thanks for the other morning, you were fantastic as usual. Wish I could start my morning to that every day!
Darcey Wise (Everyman Cinema)

Thanks a lot, you went down a total storm!
Louis Waymouth (Petersham Playhouse Theatre company)

Thank you for your continued hard work & commitment, we very much value your contribution to our music programme and we are extremely proud of your high standards. We look forward to continuing our collaboration in 2014.
S.W. Director of Music & Member Events (The Mayfair Arts Club)

Benoit and the band did an absolutely fantastic job 'introducing' the 1920s jazz theme of our event to our guests. The acoustic set was appropriate for a pre-reception and it put our guests in the right mood for the rest of the evening. We loved it and it was a pleasure working with the guys.
Sue Hantsch (Music Publishers Association)

The band were lovely and went down very well with the audience, a full floor the whole night!
Nicky Plant (Specsavers 30th anniversary party)

Many, many thanks to you and your band members for playing for the Oxford Lindy eXchange on Sunday. You guys were superb. Every one of the dancers that I asked said that you were the perfect band for our Sunday event - you read the room and were able to take the dancers with you, despite the fact that they had already been dancing for the previous two days.
Helen (Oxford Lindy Exchange)
