Many thanks again to you and the band for putting on such a great show a couple of weeks ago and for all of you for being such a pleasure to deal with. Our set up was a bit of a challenge in terms of getting people across and inside from where they had spent the afternoon out on the grass, settled in next to the bar, but you certainly managed it. Many of our guests have told us how brilliant you all were and that you were the best band they’ve heard at a party. And I think you introduced a few to some more interesting rhythms than they are used to.
