...'I want to thank you, you were FANTASTIC on Sunday, and what a memorable touch to the party. I showed the video to my colleagues at work and they loved it! Hopefully we can send you a copy of the footage! I would really like to bring some of my colleagues to see you and the band perform at some point. I was impressed and I know they will be too - which could lead them to booking you too!

I am very busy now with the Ryder Cup, it is non-stop at the moment! I look forward to meeting again,

Warm regards,

Private function - wedding

I wanted to write to thank you so much for playing at our wedding on Sunday. You were fantastic, everything we hoped it would be and more. The music was sensational and we had so many compliments about the fabulous music from
all our guests who all wanted to know how we found such a great band! The beautiful jazz sets you played in the garden at Fredericks were just perfect and set a lovely ambience. You were so friendly, helpful and professional and it was a real pleasure you meet you.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special.

I truely hope we will hear you play again in the future. I must think of an excuse to throw a party so that we can book you again!

Best wishes in all that you do and for the future

Many thanks,
