” … The last of our guests left last evening after nearly a week of celebrations
for our Wedding Anniversary.
The highlight of the week was our “Dance” at ‘The Pines’ on
Saturday night.
‘ I want to thank you for your contribution to this event by providing a
great range of music, which allowed all ages present (from teens to
mid-80’s) to get up and dance, and it is not always so easy to please three
generations musically!
We appreciated the preparation and thought put into the music which you
presented so well , and revived memories for so many.

The eldest couple told me they hadn’t danced for years as ” there has
never been the right music” – and they so enjoyed finding their dancing
feet again!

To put it simply Dave – GREAT MUSIC!, Thank you for making it such a
successful evening for us all”.

Regards,
Ainslie & Bill Martin.
