Hi Chris,

Robin & I would like to thank you so much for playing at our wedding on Sunday at Rivervale Barn.

We had a perfect day made even more perfect with your amazing band.

The music was perfect and we loved our first dance and Oscar was thrilled to hear Big River!

From day one I always wanted a live band having grown up in around live music.

Thank you for letting me have a go on the drums - Robin had never seen me play so there was nothing more fitting than that debut to be on our wedding day.

Please pass on my thanks to your other band members and hopefully we may get to hear you again in the future!

Thanks

Hi Chris,

We just wanted to send our thanks to you and the rest of the band for playing at our Wedding last Saturday. We had an incredible day and the evening was great fun with you guys playing so amazingly -everyone was up and dancing! All of our friends and family commented on how brilliant you were and I have no doubt that you will be getting more business from them as a result of our Wedding! We hope you enjoyed yourselves too.

Thanks again.

Best wishes.

Chris,

Just wanted to drop you a note as we’re now back to in the UK to say thank you so much to you and your amazing band for providing such a great entertainment for our wedding.

Your flexibility and understanding of our requirements ensured a seamless and fun event for all.

We’ve had lots of great comments about you and I’ve had a few people ask where we got you from and will happily pass on your details to anyone needing a great band.

Also pass on my thanks to your drummer who very kindly let me play; it was the icing on the cake.

Best regards,

Dear Chris

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding on April 21st - so many people have commented on what a superb band we chose! Daddy was particularly delighted that you played Achy Breaky Heart - as you may have gathered!!

I think it''s rare to live up to testimonials as completely as you guys did; it was great to see the dance floor so busy, & you really created a fantastic atmosphere throughout the evening!

Thank you also for your patience in answering all my questions, & I hope I wasn't too high maintenance!

Thank you, again, for everything - we certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend you!

Many thanks

Dear Chris and the band.

I just would like to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding at Highcliffe Castle on 6/8/11, it was absolutely amazing and you just blew us all away! I have been thinking of when I can next hire you again and my dad said about for our first year anniversary having a big garden party at his in the new forest so look out I may just take him up on this. Thank you again you were just fantastic.

Best wishes

We would like to thank you and the rest of the Band members for performing at our Wedding on Saturday 18th June.

You were amazing. Several people asked where we found you! If we require a Band again or know of anybody interested in using a Band, we would not look any further than you, we were absolutely impressed. You made our evening 'do'.

With many thanks for making our wedding even more special.

Hi, Chris.

Just a short note to say many thanks for the excellent entertainment you and your band members provided to us on Saturday night. You guys clearly know what you are doing and you judged your high quality musical inputs perfectly.

Loads of people have asked me for your details since so I dont think you've done yourself any harm for future business and marketing purposes either! I certainly wont hesitate to both use you again and recommend you to others.

Very best wishes

Chris,

Just wanted to say thanks very much for the great job you and the band did on Saturday. The band sounded great and given the mixed audience it was a good choice of songs. Your rendition of ‘Need Your Love So Bad’ for our first dance was great. And ending on ‘Wonderful Tonight’ was a huge bonus as we are huge Clapton fans.

Thanks again.

Just wanted to say a huge (if not somewhat belated) thank you for the wonderful job you did at our wedding on the 2nd dec. We had an amazing day and night. I cannot tell you how many people have told me that you were the best music they have ever heard at a wedding, and one person who said that went to 10 weddings last year alone, so I guess she must be an expert!

I have already passed your details on to a couple of people.

I very much hope to be able to use you again in the future.

Kind regards,

Hi Guys, I wanted to email you all and say a huge thank you for the great music you played at our wedding. My husband and I loved every minute and all of our guests all made a point of saying how good the band was and the music you had chosen.( the dance floor was never empty)

A special thank you to the drummer ( apologies I don't know your name ) who allowed me to have a go on the drums, I am sure most brides do not ask to play the drums on their wedding day . - great fun and lots of great photos.

And if you ever need a drummer..............

Thanks again for making our evening reception very memorable.

Best regards

EMMA SAMUELS-LEE (Wedding July 2005)

-------------------------

Hi Chris,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all the other band members that played at our wedding on the 16th July.

You really were fantastic, the music was spot on and I think the dance floor really was packed all night.

I really cannot recommend your band enough, you were so helpful from the moment we first saw you singing at another wedding. As you know we were unsure about booking a band before we had seen them and you made this possible for us. I can strongly say that people needn't worry about not seeing you beforehand as you did such a wonderful job.

You really helped to make our day so perfect and so many people have said what a fantastic band we had at our reception. You set up with no problems and I think I hardly even got to speak to you cause I was too busy dancing.

Hope you had as much fun as we did.

Thank you again

Kind regards
