Good morning Lucille, I hope you are well. I just wanted to send you some feedback for Saturday 27/07/2019 at Marlborough Cricket Club in Yardley. I arranged a surprise 65th birthday party for my husband and only 1 week before I decided I wanted a saxophone player as my hubby loves the sax! I searched and searched and eventually found you online. It was very difficult to chat as it was a surprise and I am with my hubby most of the time, however, you made this so easy for me via email/text- we didn't even get to speak but I knew you would be perfect and you were! Your response times were instant. You had another gig the same night, I loved the fact you were so professional keeping your first gig priority but you still managed to fit in the 1 hour I required. I left the choice of songs up to you, which again was just perfect and very varied to suit everyone. Everyone commented on how professional and fantastic you were. I organise quite lot of entertainment and would have no hesitation in booking you again. Promise I will give you more notice next time! Thank you and see you soon, Jackie

Lucille performed at my 50th Birthday party and surpassed all expectation. My husband booked Lucille as a surprise and all of the guests thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Lucille was professional, reliable and did not disappoint! I would recommend Lucille to anyone who wants beautiful music and a wonderful atmosphere for their event.
