“We all had a fab time (even with the complicated dance!). Thanks for fitting in and playing in rather small garden space and keeping the dances going. Lots of fun was had by all and the music was lovely.”

Vicki, Diss, July 2019

Myra, Norwich, July 2017

“Thanks so much for playing at our wedding. You were fantastic and everyone has said they really enjoyed the music and dances!”

Tom & Elle, Norwich, May 2017

“I would like to thank you and all your players of your band for a very wonderful evening. The music and dancing was perfect. People were coming to me afterwards and since the party on how excellent you played. They love the dances especially the new ones and listening to the music. Everyone was happy and thank you so much for making the evening so very happy and enjoyable. Hugh and I thought the whole event wonderful and I shall always remember my 75th birthday party! Thank you again.”

Carol & Hugh, Watton, May 2017

“Sarah and I want to express our appreciation for the really excellent evening last Saturday. We thoroughly enjoyed the music and thought you had selected an excellent variety of dances. The caller did very clear explanations of the various steps and dances. It is clear from our friends' responses and their faces while dancing that they also thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciated the gentle nudging by the lady in green when we were in muddles. (I am sorry we did not find out her name!)”
