“Dear Gemma We received some really good comments about the band during the evening, so I think it was a great success. More so because they also had some vocalists, which we thought made the night. The fact that we had several people up and dancing as soon as they were able to, goes to show that they were all really enjoying it all. Definitely a very professional outfit! Thanks for your help, have a good Christmas & New Year Helen Taylor”
