Good Morning Brian, What a lovely message to come in to work to this morning. However, the thanks is all mine. The band really were everything I expected and more and it was the icing on the cake. The music was enjoyed by everybody including the birthday boy which truly made my day. It was the perfect choice of band for the event and I wouldn’t have wished for better. Highly recommended. Hope to book you again soon. Kind Regards Caroline

Hope to book you again soon.
