Hi Pete,
Jim Joll was great. I' glad you recommended him. Our senior citizen really enjoyed his performance and have been asking if we are having him again next year.

Thanks Pete
Yes Jim and Jessie were great and everybody has raved about the successful party. The only thing we did wrong was to book them only until midnight - we should have kept them going for an hour or so longer. But thanks again - we look forward to talking to you again at our next big event.

Dear Jim & Lynne
On behalf of the club members, guests and myself, I would like to thank you most sincerely for the wonderful music and entertainment you provided for our recent Xmas function. The excellent response from our members indicated how much they enjoyed your talents.
This great celebration closed our year on such a happy 'note'. We would have no hesitation in recommending you for future functions. Once again many thanks. Wishing you both a very happy Xmas season
Thank you

Hi there, we had a very low number of bookings and that was really strange as the series had been well advertised and promoted - very disappointing and a huge loss for us. However the performance was great and Jim was very accommodating as we held the concert in the cafe to compensate for the small audience numbers; better to be in a smaller space! No complaints about the performance at all just very puzzled about why it just didn't sell. We'll hope for better for the next one!
