What can I say but you guys were absolutely BRILLIANT.  In fact now I completely regret not having you guys for the entire night as your act completely outshined the disco, which originally I thought would have gone down well.  I cannot thank you enough for having set the fantastic mood at the entire wedding.  Your music really brought everyone to life and I’m just counting the days to find any excuse to hire you again!  If you require any references it would be my absolute pleasure to commend your outstanding performance.  EVERYONE LOVED IT!  Thank you so much!”

We wanted to thank you for such a good barn dance at our wedding reception.  Many of the guests commented not only on what a good idea it was for a wedding reception, but also on how well you led it.  I think a tribute to this was the amount of people (of all ages) that got up to dance, time after time.  Thank you once again for a wonderful night’s entertainment and for helping to make our day such a special one.
