I can't believe how quickly time moves. Alan and I both wanted to thank you and your band very much for playing at our wedding at Tatuanui Hall on 8 April. We really enjoyed the music, and our family and friends really enjoyed it too. Some of our family whom neither of us have seen dance so much became legends! And our most musically knowledgeable friends thought very highly of you: I think that is high praise indeed.
All the best,
Hi Pete – yes it went very well – with very positive comments about Carolyn Lyn – she is lovely lady.
Caroline and the band were fantastic - exactly what we were after and it was great to hear alot of familiar songs!
Thanks for the recommendation - they were just great!

but all the feedback I had from those attending was very positive!
