We first came across Sidewinder when we were looking for someone to perform at our wedding. We went to see them playing one Saturday evening at Vovem, and we knew straight away they were exactly what we had in mind! The combination of saxophone snd bass worked really well together, and gave a very classy vibe. We enjoyed it so much we reached out the following day to ask them to perform at our wedding.
The guys played during our outdoor drinks reception to entertain all our guests, we’ve attended weddings in the past that had string quartets or guitarists playing so we wanted something a little different. The jazz music was brilliant and helped create a really nice atmosphere for all our guests. We had loads of positive comments from friends and family, and it was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

Music aside, Rod and Luke were a pleasure to deal with. Genuinely nice guys, and very easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend them, especially for weddings.

Thanks again!

Small jazz band with a bass and a sax are adding so much to teh atmosphere – perfectly adapted for the place. Went on a Wednesday as well and lousy/noisy “lounge” music is played which made it less enjoyable. The band should be there every day. Food is really good, not to much and wine selection with carafes, avoiding the full bottle that would be too much for 2. Service is fine but I’m picky on this matter.

We booked the Sidewinder Quartet for a gin and jazz night we held on 12th September and they went down a storm with our diners.  They were exactly what we were looking for with a professional approach and great sounds/. They provided a great atmosphere and we didn’t hesitate to book them again.  Can highly recommend.

We had Sidewinder come along to provide some tunes for our Christmas party, wanting a band that would get people up and dancing and having fun, we certainly got that!  The guys were relaxed, friendly but very professional, and they really made the atmosphere at the party something special.  I’d highly recommend them for any events in the future – I know we’ll be inviting them back!

Dining at Cafe Boheme was a unique experience.  The atmosphere is perfect, the restaurant is candlelit and there is a fireplace as well.  The food was absolutely delicious.  There is live music (really subtle) but only on Sundays I think.  Would definitely visit this place again.

We just absolutely love Cafe Boheme and always look forward to visiting.  On this occasion the food was faultless and the live jazz music was a lovely touch to a relaxing Sunday evening dinner.  The staff are extremely attentive and pleasant, also a great help with recommendations when choosing from the extensive wine list!

My partner and I were in Aberdeen visiting family and came here with another couple for dinner.  Everything was just absolutely perfect.  Excellent atmosphere, gorgeous decor, ideal lighting, live music at the optimal volume that you could hear your table but no one else’s.


IPA and Sunday evening band highly recommended!

My girlfriend and I came on a Sunday to see the jazz band performance.  It was a great atmosphere with fantastic music.  On top of that the food was amazing, well presented, brilliant service.  Would definitely return to Cafe Boheme.

Lovely food and great music to accompany it. The band Sidewinder played songs we knew and even did a request for my dad.  Would highly recommend here for a very enjoyable laid back Sunday lunch.

Here with my husband for one of Boheme’s Sunday Jazz Lunches.  We had such a wonderful time – the music was lovely as groovy background tunes and the front of house staff were relaxed and incredibly welcoming.”
