Testimonials

St Ovins Masonic Ladies Festival - Cameo Hotel Copdock - NOV 2013
"Dear Craig,
Thank you for putting on a good show at the Cameo Hotel Copdock 10th November 2013 for the St Ovins Masonic Ladies Festival. It was for many the first time we had seen your act and I must admit the feedback we had has been overwhelming. The two sets that you performed were spot on and satisfied our needs from the oldest lady at 79 to the youngest at 34. I have no problem in promoting you to other Ladies Festivals. I have had positive enquiries from Masters who are looking at entertainment for the 214 program. Once again thank you. Chris and Sue"

Panther Car Club Dinner Dance - Hilton Cobham - AUG 2012
"Dear Craig,
On behalf of everyone who attended the Panther Car Club Dinner Dance at the Hilton Cobham may I say a special well earned thank you. You were amazing, your professionalism shone through and you won everyone over with the feeling and emotion you put into every song you sang. The whole evening went so well and a lot of time must have gone into planning and how the evening would run. The music was spot on for the age group you were performing to and kept everyone entertained throughout the evening and still wanting more when the clock struck 01.00am. So thank you once again and we will certainly be asking you to perform for us again. Kind regards, Val Bridges, ChairmanĒ
