    • Claire and James
      We have been meaning to email you ever since our wedding day to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for being so brilliant at our wedding. You were all fantastic and created the most amazing atmosphere to ensure that everyone was having a good time. The mixture of genres meant that everyone got up to dance and loads of our guests have made comments since about how great you all were. Thanks for all your support leading up to our big day as well – I know I was a bit mental with all my spreadsheets but I knew I was in safe hands with you and you took it all in your stride which was much appreciated. We have some brilliant memories from our special day and many of them were created by you and your band so please do say thank you to them all from us. With many thanks and best wishes!

      We are still buzzing from our wedding last Friday. Everyone said how awesome the band were. People were on the dance floor from the very first song and throughout. The way the lead singer interacted with the crowd and got everyone involved – particularly for Carwash, Love Train and the Oops Up Side Your Head/Long Train Running mash-up was brilliant as it kept the energy pumping. I always knew they would go down a storm but they exceeded even my very high expectations. I am so glad I chose you! Cheers

    • Leah Curphey
      I just wanted to say thank you for Saturday night. I thought your band was absolutely superb! You kept everyone on the dancefloor all night and played exactly the right tunes that we needed to get everyone going. The music and vocals were great, very tight, and the stage presence (in terms of entertainment and ‘filling the room’) was exactly what we were looking for. The feedback around work has been really great about all aspects of the event and specifically about you and the band – no bad feedback at all! We’re very happy with the whole thing but the music is so important as this crowd love to dance! We most definitely will be in touch next year if/when we get the go ahead to run this event again!

      Thank you very much indeed, both for playing and for indulging the guest who wanted to sing. From the moment you started playing, I’m not sure I’ve seen the dancefloor fill so fast, so you must have done something right!

      I am going to write a “formal” thank you to you for your incredible work… but I wanted in this first instance, to just express my personal thanks to you and your fellow musicians for such a fantastic performance last night. Firstly, it was lovely to meet with you all… the feedback regarding your band and the music [already] has been amazing and I will personally be recommending you to all my friends! Thank you for being so flexible, and so accommodating throughout this whole process. It’s not often you get folks doing the conga (twice) during a “Ball”… but you managed it! I am in awe… and very grateful!

      Following our event on Friday I just wanted to send you our thanks. The band were excellent and really met our expectations. It was a muggy evening and many of the guests sat outside which was unfortunate for the band but they plugged away and got people dancing. We will definitely try to use you guys again in the future.

      Please pass on my thanks to the band and AV guy who was really amenable and thanks for all your planning and organisation. Hope to speak to you again soon!
