Hi Will, We will send a proper thank you when we get back from honeymoon, but we didn’t want to leave it too long to say a quick thank you to you and all the band for Saturday. You guys were fantastic and we really had the best time dancing! Harry said the pre-ceremony music was fab (wish I could have heard it!), our first dance was perfect, and we also loved the surprise rapping from the saxophonist! Hopefully the fact the dance floor was full all evening says it all! If it’s ok, would you mind sending me your address when you can? Would it also be ok if we have a copy of the set list you used on the evening? Have a good weekend! Elle and Harry x

Good afternoon Will, Just wanted to touch base and say a huge thank you for the excellent performance on Saturday at the Lily Ball! I have received so many lovely comments about how good your band performed and how much they enjoyed the music, which I think was quite obvious by the amount of people dancing throughout the night. Can we please ask you to pencil the date for next year’s Lily Ball into your diary, which is Saturday 29th June 2019, and I will confirm in September on our return from the Summer break. Many thanks again! Have a good summer Best wishes Paula
