"Just a short message to thank you and your band very much indeed for a successful and enjoyable evening on Saturday at our 25th Gala Ball. Everyone that I have spoken to has said that they had a super evening and thought that you and your band were great. (You could obviously tell that by the amount of people on the dance floor - I told you they were a fun loving bunch)! I met with your prospective wedding couple and hope that they were suitably impressed. I gave you a glowing recommendation. I very much hope that I will have the pleasure of seeing you again. Many thanks again for an evening of super entertainment"

"We wanted a band for our 25th Anniversary Ball which planned tobe not only one of our biggest fundraisers of 2012, but a celebration of the excellent care the hospice has provided in Berkshire over the last 25 years. As well as excellent value for money, Arena were extremely helpful on the night and went beyond their call of duty assisting with other aspects of the event including monitoring sound and lighting during speakers and our live auction. Arena were willing to promote various fundraising initiatives on the night during their set, including our tombola and silent auction which resulted in raising a considerable amount towards the total. Massive thanks to Arena for providing us with top class entertainment!"
