Just wanted to say thank you for Saturday, so many people came up to me straight after your first set and said how much they enjoyed you guys and since the day I have had a lot more people comment on how good you were too! Georgie and I both said to each other after the night, we hated it when we had to leave the dance floor for one reason or another as we were missing it but anyway, I just wanted to say a further thank you to you, Paul and Sam, as we enjoyed it so much.
I am sure we will see you at a gig in the not too distant future.

Just wanted to say a big thank you !
You were brilliant and everyone I have spoken about the wedding commented on how great the band was !
You helped make our wedding really memorable and I will be recommending you to everyone.
I'm trying to think of another reason for a big party so we can use you again !!!
I'm so sorry for taking this long to email you, but I wanted to say a massive thank you for performing at our wedding at Botleys Mansion in November. You and your band are brilliant and our guests have said nothing but good things to us about you since the wedding.
I would be more than happy to write a review for you if that's something you would like me to do.
Thank you again so much, I will be recommending you to others whenever I get the chance!

Hi Paul Dean & Sam
We again wanted to thank you, Paul and Samuel for your performance at our wedding yesterday. So many people commented on how amazing you were, and we're sure you would agree that everyone had a great time!
Naomi and Josh
Hi Dean and the rest of the band.
You played in my back garden on the 9th November for my son's 18th and I wanted to say how much EVERYONE enjoyed your music. You are the talk of the town in Barming (pity it's not MTV)
Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the crew.
I have just returned from honeymoon and I wanted to drop you an email to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding, we had the most amazing day and we loved the evening party. Your excellent band, got everyone up dancing with some brilliant song selections and I am not sure I left the dancefloor all evening, along with many other people. Lots of the guests have commented on how good your band were and several have asked for your details.
Once again, many thanks, we really appreciate the excellent entertainment you provided, it was money well spent.
Hi Dean and the band
I just wanted to thank you, the band & DJ for last night. We received so many compliments & will be recommending you to our friends & family. I hope you had enough drinks & food apologies I didn't get round to thanking you personally.
A huge thanks to you and the DJ for playing at my wife's 40th birthday. What a band!! And for a 3 piece makes it even more amazing. I see many bands perform around the Kent area and you guys are the best I've seen. I'll certainly be coming to see you perform again.
You was excellent and we will be using you again and recommending you to everyone we know.
Just a quick thankyou email now that every thing has died down.
Not just us but every body that heard you play in the day time with Barry and the evening thought you was brilliant... you guys done a superb job and i will certainly recommend you guys to any body that are looking for a band.

Dear Lee & MC
I wanted to say thank you for Saturday night. I know I looked stressed, but everyone had a great time. It was such a varied selection of people at the party and they all had fun and all enjoyed the music. The band were amazing, not just technically (we had a few musicians at the party going on about how good they were), Your choice of songs was great and appealed to everyone, it was great that you were mixing at the end. It wasn't just me that noticed you mixed in a classic tune from our teenage years into drum and Bass. Anyway once again thank you so much, it appears everyone was happy even my teenage daughter (they are often hard to please).
Thanks so much
