I wanted to send you a note to truly thank you & the band for an incredible evening!! We had a sense that you would be good, but that description couldn?t possibly do you justice. You were AWESOME!! We have had so many calls from our friends, who couldn?t say enough about you. Really, the night is about the entertainment & boy, you gave us that and more.
Thank you so much for making the trip to Sudbury. You made our evening a complete success & for that I am so grateful!! I realize that it was a big trip for you (and more so with the traffic!), but I hope you don?t discount the opportunity for corporate events in this area. Don?t worry?.not all guests get on the stage ?KICKING? like crazy people (sorry.)?(what?s with those bankers/investment people??!!)
In any case, if you EVER need a reference?please... give my name! I?m a huge fan!
If you ever find yourself in the area, let me know. We?d all love to see you again.
