Dear Brian.....Thank you so much for all your music at Sarah and Alex's wedding. You worked so hard and it was very much appreciated. It was lovely to have music for the oldies as well as the young ones.  
 Best wishes,

"Good Morning Brian,

What a lovely message to come in to work to this morning. However, the thanks are all mine.

Your music was really everything I expected and more and it was the icing on the cake. The music was enjoyed by everybody including the birthday boy which truly made my day.

It was the perfect choice of music for the event and I wouldn’t have wished for better. Highly recommended.

Hope to book you again soon.

Kind Regards

Hi Brian
What a fabulous wedding night we had on 2 September  thanks to your wonderful band.  The music was just what we wanted for our wedding and the mix of songs certainly encouraged guests of all ages to get onto dance floor.  My elderly uncle was struggling with a stick on arrival at the wedding but by 9:00pm he was dancing like never before.  Thanks so much to all the band - totally lovely guys. Thanks especially to you Brian for all your efforts and time put in to make sure we had the songs we wanted.   Our ‘first dance’  was magical and something that we will never forget.  You are an exceptionally talented group and we hope to see more of you all at the local gigsTo anyone planning a wedding, party or event  - do not hesitate to book the band and quickly!
Claire and Richard"
