Hello all I just wanted to say a massive thank you for last night. The music was absolutely spot on, and just as I had requested. Your song choices were perfect and you judged the mood perfectly the whole evening. Everyone was telling me it was the best party they'd ever been to. So many people were gutted because they couldn't come for all sorts of reasons - they'll be even more gutted now when everyone tells them how great it was. Thanks again for making my birthday so special - and please do quote me on your site. Maria x
