We just wanted to write a short letter to thank you and the rest of the
The Chordaires for making our wedding day so memorable. You all played fantastically and really added to the ambience of the evening. We saw friends of ours up on the dance floor we’d never even see dance before!
Thanks for all your hard work."
(7th Feb – Bramall Hall)"Dear Simon and band members of The Chordaires,
The Chordaires were outstanding. You were even better than your demo CD! As a professional musician, I have to say that you were FANTASTIC. We have had so many compliments concerning the band. People enjoyed both dancing and listening to your music. Even the teenagers at the wedding thought you were amazing!
I wanted a swing band in honour of my Dad who used to be a jazz musician. Living in Paris I was slightly worried about finding a band that plays in tune! When I heard your demo I was knocked out by your professionalism, outstanding quality, musicianship and electric vibe!
My brother has already booked you for his wedding next year! You were sooooo funky – The Marquee: with your music, dim lighting and international ambiance resembled a chic New York jazz club
Thank you very much.""Hello Simon,
I write to thank you and your fellow musicians for leading the party at the Stanneylands after F and M’s wedding. Your music was much enjoyed and had feet tapping all night, even for those who could not dance. I had to spend time out of the room looking after a child but each time I did return the floor was busy and people were obviously enjoying what you played.
I wish you and the ensemble the very best.""Dear Simon,
What can we say???
Thank you, Fantastic, Absolutely Brilliant, First Class, Wonderful,
Please pass on our thanks and compliments to the ensemble for the wonderful music you provided on the 23rd. From our first conversation right through to the evening we have been impressed with your attitude and competence, and now are still enjoying the memories of the music and your entertainment.
Please feel free to use us for any references for any future bookings you may have. You can be assured that we shall say nothing but praise for you and the ensemble.""Dear The Chordaires,
We just wanted to write to say thank you for your wonderful performance at our wedding at the Saddleworth Hotel on Sunday 9th March. We had a wonderful day and the music you played really was the icing on the cake. We really enjoyed dancing to your music and our guests commented on how wonderfully you played and how nice it was to be able to talk to friends and relatives they hadn’t seen for a while whilst being entertained by such great music.
Thank you once again."Past Clients include:
Most of all very many happily wedded people and their friends and families and those people who celebrate life by dancing and partying from one year to the next!
