Hi Robyn and Pete,
It was a superb concert on Sunday. The weather was kind and Jane and the band were so brlliant. Their professionalism showed and , of course, their musical talents, which were much appreciated by the audience.
Feedback has been very positive, and we will definitely consider booking them again in the future.
Thank you so much for being so friendly and easy to deal with in the setting up of this evening.
Kind Regards
Chris Hagon ( Concert Organiser)
