"Ivan, I’d really like to have you all back again soon.

You fit in perfectly with the clientele, I just wish that some of the crowd we had during the day where still there in the evening. Next time we have a day event it will be better to have you perform in the garden about 3pm on.

I’ll be in touch. Many thanks in advance for the cd.

I absolutely loved the good bad and the ugly theme you did.

You are one of the most professional bands I have had the pleasure of seeing.

All the best to...

Hi Ivan. Many thanks for your note and I’m pleased to hear that you all enjoyed the D&D. I must say I’ve not received one negative response, which is a relief, and I would like to thank you all for your contribution to making the evening such a success. Unfortunately we won’t be at Geoff’s do, but good luck with it. Regards. Jackie.
