“my mother raves about you after seeing you at the Windlesham Picnic last year”

Hi Mike,

Thanks so much for getting back to me!

We are very keen to have you. Like I said, we saw you at your last gig at the Red Lion and my mother raves about you after seeing you at the Windlesham Picnic last year.  In terms of budget to be honest we have not really thought about what we were to allocate to having a band as we we’re really unsure on the general price.  Your average price for this year sounds ok to me.

I am going to speak to my other half tonight and hopefully get back to you tomorrow.

Thanks so much for your help

Hi Mike and the band!

Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for playing at our wedding!!  We had such a wonderful day and then the evening was just the best! The band really made our day even more special than it already was.  I am sure you could see how much fun everyone was having during the evening, dancing and singing and we even got 3 extra songs out of you, as everyone just wanted to keep partying !

We will certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a band!

Thank you all so much once again and I am sure we will be back down the Red Lion at some point to see you all play…

Take care, all the best
Jenny and Jeff (“Mr and Mrs Anthony”)!!

Hey hey hey!

Morning lovelies, hope this finds you all well.

Quick one just to confirm that you guys were IMMENSE Friday night.  Really tight, harmonies were amazing (thanks to Julia so I hear) and clearly they all love you down there. It really was rocking. Nice work! And thanks for letting me butt in on one number.  Really enjoyed it – so nice to be back with you all.

Mikey B keep me posted on this weekend hunny.  Like I said, if you do get the gig and you need a hand, it would be an honour to gig with you good Sir.

Hava nice day now! 🙂

Dear all,

We’ve just arrived home after the wedding yesterday and wanted to write and thank you again so much for playing last night at our wedding.  You were truly amazing.  I can’t tell you how many people have commented to us today about how fantastic you were and you absolutely made the whole evening the success it was.

The mix of music was just perfect and kept everyone on the dance floor all night.  The music suited the huge age range, there really was something for everyone!  To watch you perform – your enthusiasm was just infectious – you very obviously enjoy what you do and are very talented musicians!

Thanks again for being such a major contribution to the success of our wedding and we have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone organising a wedding or event.

Best wishes to you all and thanks again!

Jo & David Newsham

Hi Mike,

Several people have already commented on how great you were – and how friendly too!

My father had a fantastic time…. we all did in fact, so thanks again from myself, my family and my friends for making the evening so special.

09 Oct 2009 – a big “thank you” for the exemplary performance you put on at our Wedding Party

“So many of our guests commented on the fantastic variety of your set but more importantly what a great bunch of entertainers you really are.”

Dear “Famous Five”,

We thought that we would write to say a big “thank you” for the exemplary performance that you put in on the 9th October at our Wedding Party. So many of our guests commented on the fantastic variety of your set but more importantly what a great bunch of entertainers you really are. We appreciate that it must be very difficult to put together a performance that will appeal to those aged from 9 to 92 …. You certainly achieved this as Lucie’s 92 year old Nan is not often persuaded to “strut her stuff” on the dancefloor (she did complain of aching bones the day after!!!)
We’ll keep an eye on your up and coming gigs on your website and no doubt we will take the opportunity to come and watch you perform in the near future.

Dear FFB

We couldn’t have wished for better from a band for our daughter’s wedding last Saturday.  What a find!  I gather you left an excellent impression on the McDavids (who run the Barn) too.  They had nothing but praise for you, not only as a band but also as people and we all agree wholeheartedly with them.

Well done and many thanks,

Nicky Donker
