"Dear Kevin. It was good to see you again on Saturday, and yes, the evening appeared to go very successfully, and a great time was had by all!! It was fantastic to see so many people get up to dance as soon as you started playing, which only emphasises you got the mood of the guests just right. We have yet to come up with a grand total on exactly how much was raised, but I believe its in the region of 12k, so not bad considering the current economic climate. From Tracy, Kim, as well as myself Thank you once again for your support, and for making sure the evening's entertainment first class. I'd like to wish you, and the rest of the members, a very Merry Christmas, and all the best for 2009. Kind regards.
- Sue Fenton, Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity Event, Witham

Great service as usual everything went smoothly and a fun night had by all. Hope the band didn't mind us joining them on stage for American Pie! It was great.
- Debbie Phillips, St Edmunds College, Ware

Trying to find a band that would suit all tastes is very difficult, but you were fantastic and I would recommend them most highly. Thank You.
- Tony Crompton, Cobham

The band have been the most organized and professional group I have worked with and their performance on the night had everybody up dancing. They created a vibrant and happy atmosphere that everybody, of all ages, enjoyed. Brilliant.
- Alan Clarke EISL Ltd, Buxted Park Country House, Uckfield

You were excellent. Kevin was very helpful in our conversations before the party, and very professional and obliging on the night. Their performance was superb, and the dance floor was full all night. I would have no hesitation in booking them again, and would highly recommend them for a similar celebration. Thanks for your help.

It was a great night, we had a fab time and your band including DJ were superb. We will certainly recommend you to our friends.

Dear Kevin, just wanted to let you know that we really thought the band were great last night. We had many phone calls from our friends today who loved the music! Andy's said his absolute best moment of the whole weekend was your Hey Jude at the end. We would be happy to join your list of very satisfied referees if you want us to. Many thanks to all of you.
- Myra Stern, Barmitzvah, London Zoo

You were great, thanks again for contributing to a great night. I was over the moon. All our friends are taking their number!

Just to say what a fantastic job the band did last we night and I hope they left feeling that they had been appreciated. Everybody had a great time and the dance floor was always full which was what we were hoping for. Many thanks.
