Wairarapa Services and Citizens Club
Thanks for touching base and follow up.
The Hipnotics were amazing - they had everyone up dancing by the end of the night! It was a really good evening
Thanks very much :)
We were delighted with David & his team - Many thanks for your organizing and follow up . We would recommend the Hipnotics very highly . Until next time …. I have another daughter !!!
Thanks again Mandy McMaster
I wanted to drop you a note to (formally) thank you for a truly fantastic performance from the Hipnotics at my 50th Do at Prefab Hall last night.
I stopped counting the number of people that came up to me during the night to say how fantastic the band were - and in the next breath what an amazing singer and perfomer the lead singer (Christina) is.
It has been a similar theme this morning. I have received numerous texts and emails from friends saying what a great night they had and, without exception, everyone has mentioned the band.
I was pretty confident that the band would be good, as my husband Matt is a musician and did a bit of research choosing them. However they far exceeded both Matt and my expectations. They really made the party - and I now have very sore feet from dancing.
In short, the Hipnotics are a class act and they are an absolute credit to your agency.
Cheers and thanks
Thanks for your message.
The band was great, and the folk who stayed on to dance to them had a blast!
We had a lot of older folk at the dinner who left a little earlier than expected, but the band did a great job of closing the night.
Please pass on my thanks and regards to them.
Thanks for your email. Everything was great, and the band was fantastic.
Thanks for everything
Yes thank you, everything went extremely well and we were most impressed with the performance and professionalism of David and the Hipnotics
Thanks for making this all so easy to organise and we will definitely be recommending.
I believe the band were great according to the client.
