Some of the comments from our clients and audiences over the years.......


Hello Paul

Another really cracking concert at Mytchett last night with the first half culminating in my long standing request for The Champ. Although I've got quite an ancient version by Jack Parnell on disc - a breakable one at that! - and a CD of Ted Heaths, on which it's also featured, there's nothing quite like hearing and seeing it played live and the band performed it brilliantly. We really enjoyed the whole night, sorry we'll miss the September Concert but we are off on a cruise again, so we'll hopefully be there in October.  

Best wishes and thanks again,  

Brian Hambleton


Hi Paul

We had a really wonderful evening. Please thank everyone. Emails keep flooding in and everyone mentions the band. Do let me know if you happen to be playing in a charity event or anything we can come and dance - 10 years is a long time to wait.  

Best wishes,  

John


Hi Paul

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your slick professionalism and excellent  entertainment last night. All ages and stages loved the music and having the band just helped set the tone for a really great night which we all thoroughly enjoyed.

I know it was a hot night for you all in your finery -  (some people arrived and were very worried that they’d got the dress code wrong thinking it was black tie!) – I hope your guys didn’t feel too over overworked!  

Big thanks once again and have a great summer.  

Best wishes,  

Julie and Glen Ian


Dear Paul

Thank you so very much. The music you and your band played for us at Wentworth on Saturday evening was
quite fantastic and very much enjoyed by everybody who attended the Ball, as I am sure that you could tell
with so many people still dancing right to the end of the evening.

Personally I thought the band and your two singers were superb, you make a wonderful sound and you made it
a very enjoyable evening for us. As you know you play the type of music I love, that wonderful big band effect,
and it made a very special evening for me.

It was a great pleasure to meet you and the band.

Thank you for giving us such a memorable and special evening.

With kind regards
Ian



We just want to let you know how much we (and apparently everyone there) enjoyed the dance. It was more like a party and we think it was down to your re-action to what people wanted to hear and dance to and enjoy, particularly your introducing the Gay Gordons and New York New York as a finale. We have not stopped talking about it all morning.
Thank you for a wonderful night. Love Ann and Eric



Hi Paul,
Just wanted to say what a great concert it was last night. Phil and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Loved Lyn's singing and funnies.
Please wish the band a very Happy Christmas and New Year from us and look forward to the
January 2013 concert.
Best Regards
Mo Holden



Hi Paul,

Really great concert last night one of the very best. Enjoyed every number, especially the Children of Sanchez which I'd requested after the Christmas Concert. It was absolutely stunning with Enrico leading from the front so superbly!

Can't wait for his next visit.

Best wishes

Paul,

Many thanks for the invoice, which I will pay in the same fashion as the previous invoice.

The evening was a great success down to in part the excellent music provided by your band. The performance was superb and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the background music and “ambiance” created by yourself and band members. Many thanks indeed for the additional hour and of course you details will be retained by the PMC for future events here at the Ac.

Regards

Afternoon Paul,

Just to say we all had an excellent evening either dancing or listening to your band or both!
We were very impressed - we're now hoping you will organise another dance in the not too distant future?
We could have invited more dancers to join us but we had no idea how the evening would be.

Once again many thanks.

Christine.




Dear Paul,

Many, many, thanks for Saturday night, really terrific, went down very well – again.

Had lots of e-mails etc., saying how much everyone enjoyed the night.

Kind regards,

Mike.



Paul
We're still on a high after Saturday night. It was a great evening.
The band was outstanding - we're getting thank you's from our guests and they are all talking about the band.
I got a call from someone in South Africa who couldn't come but said he'd heard that the band was fantastic! Quite a few Club members are suggesting they ask you to play at one of the Club balls, so who knows.

Anyway, thanks very much for organizing everything and especially for the evening itself.

John & Kate.




HI Paul another great show I'd like to make a request for next month show Luton Who
hope you have an arrangement.
Thank you George



Dear Paul,

Best wishes

Just to say how much I enjoyed your concert at the Radlett Centre. It is the third time I have attended the Sinatra Show. I rate your band very highly.




Paul

Just a quick note to thank you for the standard of music on Saturday night, it was second to none. Many people have commented on quality of music played, so once again please accept our thanks to you and your band for making Saturday a success.

Dear Paul,

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for providing such a brilliant band for us last night. It was absolutely excellent but of course I knew it would be. I hope you were all fed and watered properly and you all got back safely.

Once again thanks so much. It was ace!

Just a quick note to say thank you for a great show in Mychett on Sunday.

Musicians of your calibre never fail to amaze me, and as for your drummer sight-reading the whole show, awesome.

Great stuff!

Thanks.

Hello Paul

I hope all is well with you.

Wanted to just say a BIG thank you to you and the band for helping make the evening on the 28th January such a great success. Nothing but positive feedback.
Looking at doing it again in January so will keep you posted.

Dear Paul,
The Yateley Big Band Society is hoping to have a concert later this year celebrating 25 years as a society
You played for us 5 years ago at Yateley Centre on a Sunday afternoon with great success, and if possible we would like to repeat that in September?

Yours sincerely

Kay Sealey - Sec. YCBBS



Hi Paul,

That was a great evening on the 5th Feb, the Band and Mark Nightingale just complimented each other, a great way to spend a Sunday evening!

I have a request if you could consider it; it's a bit of an oldee called 'Ponciana' or 'Song of the tree' as Glen Miller and the AAF Band called it

Thanks again for an excellent evening,

best regards

Brian Lord




Hi Paul
Just wanted to say thank you for the gig.
Please give my regards and thanks to all the band for their excellent playing.
Hope to see you in the not too distant future.
Regards

Thanks and all best wishes,

Dear Paul

Once again, just to say thank you for all your help which made the day go just perfectly apart from you having to count up to at least 42 before he arrived !!! Quite a scary moment, I thought he had changed his mind ! I don't think his feet have touched the ground yet.

It was lovely to meet you again and hope we can see you again in the not to distant future.

Best wishes ; Don and Liz
