Hi Robyn, I wasn’t actually able to attend our function (due to a funeral) however the team were very happy with April’s entertainment on the day and I thought she was a pleasure to work with.
Many thanks for your assistance.
Corporate Christmas Party
She was fabulous thank you very much.
The function absolutely loved April and we will be having her in again next time there in an opportunity to.
We were thrilled to have Aprils duo, and many people commented on how they enjoyed it. We really feel it added to the atmosphere . They were very helpful and willing to play items we requested. I found the whole experience easy, from initial requests to the end. I loved dealing with all of you. Thanks again.
