Several of our guests have said you guys were brilliant. It just suited the venue and the mood and everything. Very professional but also very likeable. Thank you so much!
I wanted to say a huge thank you to each of you for entertaining me and all my family and friends at my party on the 6th. I had an amazing evening. Many people commented on how good you were and that they had also had a great evening. Thank you too for practising some of my favourites and playing them for me I will be recommending you.
after hearing some sample tunes, I knew I just had to have them for my bash. From the start, the band set the ambiance for the night and got the crowd grooving. Your performance was incredible and left all our guests impressed.
Thank you very much for playing for us on Saturday. It was excellent and exactly what I wanted. Everyone said how much they enjoyed the music and the fact that they could maintain a conversation whilst still enjoying your playing.
I just wanted to write and send our sincere thanks for the wonderful performance you and the band put on at our wedding reception. All the guests have been saying how much they enjoyed the music and what a great atmosphere you created! It was just what we wanted.
