Frances, U, 3 years ago

Dear Danny and John, I just wanted to say a massive thank you to the whole band for playing at the Gala Dinner on Thursday. The band were absolutely brilliant, the music and singing were fantastic and it really made it a special occasion for all the alumni and guests who came to the dinner. I had some nice comments on the night from alumni who enjoyed the music, so thank you so much to everyone, if you could pass that on to everyone please.

Danny and the rest of the band! U are all so fantastic and very talented. Thank you so much for making last night a special evening - you added that extra panache and Karen and I really enjoyed ourselves. We keep replaying all the videos. I have your details & I hope we touch base sometime next year...
