Peter my apologies for not getting to you first.
A million thanks for everything you were all wonderful.
and our thanks to Sasha also - I would be thrilled to give any recommendations to any enquires you have.
I will be in touch as soon as I have another function requiring musicians.
Thanks so much, Sasha was just amazing, we and our guest's loved him. He
is a wonderful artist but also a lovely person to have around on such a
special day. His music was just perfect for the setting that we had
chosen, the ambiance created by the music and environment made for a
Donna and Steve.
Sasha was very satisfactory for the occasion, he not only performed well, but joined in the ceremony too, adding to the celebration of the occasion.

the occasion and everyone enjoyed his background guitar music (perhaps even
the lions at The Lion Shelter!). After moving on to The Old Elephant House
for our meal, Sasha again fitted into the atmosphere perfectly, creating a
very relaxing mood, perfect throughout our meal. We would definitely
Thanks Pete. Please feel free to add our feedback to your website.
