I don’t think I have ever been to a wedding where so many people have danced so much

Jo and Colin’s Wedding
Venue – Frensham Pond Hotel near Farnham, Surrey

“truly amazing and made the perfect ending to our perfect day”

“I don’t think I have ever been to a wedding where so many people have danced so much”

“I would highly recommend you to anybody who wanted that little something extra for their special occasion as there is nothing like a really good live band (you really were excellent!)”

Hi Mike,

Firstly I would like to apologise that it has taken me so long to contact you and thank the band for playing at our wedding.  They were truly amazing and made the perfect ending to our perfect day.  So many of our guests commented on how fantastic they were and I don’t think I have ever been to a wedding where so many people have danced so much.  I would highly recommend you to anybody who wanted that little something extra for their special occasion as there is nothing like a really good live band (you really were excellent!).

Please pass on our thanks and praise to the others.

As requested I have attached a few pictures we have so you can see everyone enjoying themselves.

All the best,

Jo And Colin

Bramley School Spring Ball held at Tyrrell’s Wood Golf Club, Leatherhead, Surrey

Hi Mike,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you from me personally and on behalf of Bramley School for making out Ball so wonderful on Saturday.

You were all incredible with your support and flexibility and were so professional. I have never been stopped by so many parents on the way in to school, they were all saying how amazing you all were and how you made our night. I have given out your website to a few people, two of which have weddings in their families in the next year so I hope they get in touch. The parents loved the selection of music and enjoyed dancing the evening away. Everyone wished we’d had more time to enjoy your fantastic entertainment. We have had a disco in recent years before my time as chair of the PTA and quite frankly it was cheap but not a patch on the real thing! You are all such talented musicians and Julia has such a stunning voice … can we book you for next year please? Not sure of the venue yet but we would be honoured if you would play for us again some time. Soon as date confirmed I’ll put in a deposit if you’ll play for us again! Our head mistress was overjoyed at the evening, and was thrilled when I said we were having a band this year. She stopped me this morning with hugs full of praise and wants you to play for us again.

Thanks so much for all your help with making our event so special, it is much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Nikki

Mike,

Lucy and I would like to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the band. You guys were absolutely amazing and helped to sign our special day off in style. I wouldn’t think twice about recommending you to anyone looking for a band and we’re hoping to get along to one of your gigs soon to say thank you in person.

We have lots of photos of the band playing and I’d be happy to forward these to you if you would like to see them or use them in any way.

Kind regards and hope to see you play again soon,

Lucy and Greg

Dear Mike and the Famous Five Band,

First of all I would like to apologise for the delay in sending this but we have only just come back from a fantastic 4 week honeymoon!

Following my sister’s wedding last year we had no doubt that you would be anything other than brilliant – we were right.  We had such a fantastic wedding and the band really contributed to the joyous atmosphere and success of the evening.  We had many compliments from friends and family and the mix of music got guests of all ages up and dancing throughout the night which was wonderful to see.

Thank you so much for helping to make our day such a success.

We will definitely come and see you again and will check your website for gigs – always looking for a good night out!

We will absolutely recommend you, without hesitation, to anyone who is looking for a band.

Kind regards,

Caroline and Justin

Dear Famous Five Band,

We just wanted to thank you for being so brilliant and entertaining on our wedding day.

You guys were fabulous and you really made the evening for us on our special day. 

So many of our guests commented on how great you were and everyone really enjoyed themselves. 

So many people who wouldn’t normally be dancing just couldn’t resist! 

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you and if we can think of another excuse for a party then we will be in touch!

Thanks again

To all of The Famous Five Band,

We would just like to thank you all for your amazing performance at our wedding on Saturday 9th October 2010, at Lillibrooke Manor, Berks.  So many of our guests asked where we found you and commented on how great you are.  We have recommended you and will continue to recommend you, always!

You played our first dance song fantastically well.  We were amazed.

As the bride I would like to say sorry for not having chance to speak to you, but I will be looking at your gigs to see when and where you are playing in the near future.

Please could you send me an address to put a thank you card in the post also.

Kind regards

Lynne and Karl Finch.
