I Just wanted to let you know how much all of my friends enjoyed ‘The Strand’ at my birthday party. Everyone said what a brilliant mix of music and how much they enjoyed dancing to it. Even people who do not usually dance were up on the dancefloor; strutting their stuff! It has also been commented that although it was suitably loud it didn't stop them from talking and chatting. All the best to you and the band
