“Just wanted to say how absolutely fantastic you and your band were on Sunday. It really couldn’t have been any better! Even hotel guests who weren’t at the wedding but had taken a sneak peak were asking us for your contact details the next morning. Once again, thank you very much for such amazing entertainment!”
