“I just want to thank you for helping me select a band for my birthday party. April Skies were absolutely fantastic, the communication before the date was excellent, and they sent me a through a song list so that I could pick the songs I liked. They were amazing and went down a treat - such nice guys as well. They left a few cards, which I have given to a few of my friends who I am sure would be interested in booking them - so they are sure to email you soon. Thanks again for making my birthday special! I would certainly recommend April Skies to your clients.”
