I would like to congratulate you on two storming sets on Saturday night at Somerford Hall. If anyone is thinking of booking the boys don't delay, BOOK'EM! Everybody, from age 4 to 94 (all on the dance floor!) said you were a superb live band. Thank you from all at Lee and Caroline's wedding party!

"Just to let you know that the Essex Blues Brothers were fantastic, the feedback from all our employees has been very positive. Can you please extend our thanks to them. Also thank you for making the arrangements and for the recommendation. Hopefully it wont be Xmas again, before we need more entertaining. Hope you have a good Christmas and New Year."
- Sushma Hayes, Human Resources Manager
