�Hi Tim,
Just wanted to say a few words about our daughters wedding last weekend;
We'd enjoyed a wonderful day; the Priory Barn was glorious, the wedding ceremony was beautiful, we were able to hold the reception outside on the lawn as the weather was kind to us, the food was fab and then, almost too soon, it was the evening. That's when you started to play! The sound was just amazing, it filled the barn, people started to smile and then get up to dance- voluntarily! Basically the evening 'took off' from there and didn't stop till it was time for everyone to go home.
I don't need to say how good you all are as musicians, nor how professional, you know that, but I do want you to know that literally every generation at the reception thought you and your music were great and that you seemed to being having almost as much fun as we were; making it a very happy event. The challenge with the power cutting out didn't dampen any spirits; it was Us vs. The Establishment and we won!. Particular thanks for this must go to your lovely saxophonist who, untroubled by the need for electricity, played on. So we all carried on dancing and singing, then when the power came back, you all joined in again - just perfect.
I'm so glad Jo and Ben found you during their search for 'the right' band for their wedding. It was a good choice and you will be remembered as a key contributor to an amazing day. I unreservedly recommend you and am now looking for an excuse to engage you again.
Please pass on my thanks to your great team.�

�The music was fantastic and exactly what I wanted. I just regret the fact that I didn�t get as much time on the dancefloor as I�d have liked!�

�Your band were just terrific � great sound and wonderful to dance to.�
Julia Welk 19/02/11

We just wanted to say how fantastic you and the band were at our wedding, you made our day go out with a bang! Everyone said how amazing you were. I don�t think there was a minute from when you started to play until you finished that the dance floor wasn�t packed. Thanks for a great night�
