I really don’t think I can put into words how wonderful you were, you made our wedding day completely perfect! I’m going to be looking for excuses for parties now so we can book you again!
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you, and let you know what a great time we had on 11 April. The band was everything and more I had hoped for, and I have had so many of my guests asking for your number and where I found you!! Many have commented that you are the best band they have ever heard at a wedding. You both truly made our day memorable, and are a credit to the profession.
The band were fabulous too, such a great bunch of musicians, even my 80 year old father in law who never dances was swinging on down to their music. I have organised many parties and events, for Walt Disney, BAFTA and the Henley Regatta but I can honestly say I cannot remember one where the entertainment was so enjoyable and the entertainers so dedicated to making sure everyone had not only a wonderful but truly memorable time. You really are stars that shine.
Just wanted to say an enormous thank you for keeping us so well entertained on Sunday. You and your band were excellent and caught the mood of the evening perfectly and catered for all generations without any difficulty.
What an amazing night! You guys gave us memories we shall never forget, all our guests had a fabulous time. The amount of complements we received for booking you guys was endless. We cannot thank you enough for everything you did. Everyone was made to feel so special from the bride to the mother of the bride and the grandmother of the bride.
