Many thanks for your performance at the RNLI College Summer Ball. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all and commented on in the many emails and thanks I have received for organising the event. The choice of playlist was perfect with how the night progressed and as the dance floor filled up, the song choice was spot on! Our only regret is that we should have had you for an extra hour! Thank you once again for an outstanding performance, and I'm sure I'll be in touch once again to book you for next year.
