Hi Pete McGregor Entertainment
As I had mentioned on my call the day after the event we felt the talent you provided for our Awards evening were perfect. Kevin Clarke trio had a great selection of music and also the DJ – Ben - I still am hearing good news about about the two groups. We would recommend both parties for work – punctional and easy to work with.
Thank you Nikki

Hi Robyn and Pete
Well, the dust has finally settled as our last South American event finished late last week. Whew!
Thanks very much for all the musicians you booked, I really found it an exceptionally easy way to get it all sorted with one contact.
I’ve had a little feedback from Chris who was our ‘man on the road’:
Dr Sanchez in Christchurch was apparently “brilliant – great guitarist - understated and perfect”.
Kevin in Wellington, and Ralph in Napier were also very good and added atmosphere to the events.
All in all, a great success, thanks so much.
We are very happy with the evening; I hope Kevin and the crew enjoyed themselves. We had very good responses from customers and Kirsty the general manager was happy with the evening.
Sorry just realised that I hadn't responded to your email of a month ago - oh well better late than never.
We were extremely impressed with the Kevin Clark Trio and Fran Barton for our wedding - in fact they were one of the highlights of the whole day. People couldn't wait to get up and dance. We were really impressed with their professionalism and style. We also appreciated the help that you and your staff provided - if it wasn't for you, we probably wouldn't have thought of booking Kevin - so glad that we did.
