We had such a good time and just loved every minute of it! Thank you so much for all you did to make the evening go so well, it had a terrific buzz & I know everyone had a good time, especially the Bride. While you were packing up we just sat there saying we really didn’t want it to end. It certainly helped to make the day a truly special one.
WOW is all I can say…and a big thank you for Saturday. Everyone thought you were great- loads of calls re the band. THANK YOU, what a talent.
We would like to personally thanks your group for the entertainment and taking it such a success of the recently concluded New Years Eve Gala event in the Emirates Palace. This would not be possible without your very good performance that complimented the entire evening of entertainment. It is very gratifying to have you as one of the major performers which made the event truly memorable.
I’d like to take the opportunity to thank you and your band for your performance at our Summer Ball. You performed two excellent sets and everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
The Shades were nothing short of outstanding. Right from the outset, you had guests on the dance floor with an aptly named ‘Let Me Entertain You’. Both sets were so powerful & engaging that I thought would literally bring the marquee down. Everyone I spoke to on the night and since commented on how amazing you were.
The Band were fantastic, completely live and dance floor full. Already booked again for our Christmas event!
Shades band were amazing, these guys are so talented and performed songs for all ages, even some rock n roll for my nanny and grandad x
