Hi David!
Yes, you guys did an amazing job! Ricky was outstanding and everyone thought he was a very famous artist from overseas.
Big thank you to the team and Ricky.

Hi Pete,
Sorry about my delayed reply it has been a busy day. 
Our party was just superb and made all the more perfect by Ricky and the entertainment he provided. He played an awesome mixture of known Latin pieces, music to dance by and also beautiful background music. It definitely took our party to the next level. 
All our guests raved about his performance and I’ve provided the link to him on PME’s website to one couple so that might eventuate into another booking for him. 
I don’t think anything could have been better and we thank Ricky profusely for this! 
Kind Regards,

Hi Robyn,
