John Tomassone's Brass from The Past 11/30/13

Dear John,

I wanted to thank you and the members of Brass from the Past for the great job you did performing at our National Sales Meeting in Itasca, IL this past October. I know this type of performance, which was tied into our awards ceremony is probably not your typical gig, but the band pulled it off. They were high energy and they performed exactly as we had hoped.

We take a survey every year after our meeting and I am happy to report that Brass from the Past received a rating of 9.4 on a scale of 1 – 10. Normally I tell people if you get over an 8 you were fantastic. I guess a 9.4 makes you Outstanding!

Here are just a few exact comments people wrote in regarding your performance:

“The band was the best one in my 7 years of attending your meetings. Every one of the singers was clutch.”

“13 people in a band? Holy Cow they were great! I wish we could have listened to them for hours. “

“What a great band. If they didn't have so many people, I would suggest you fly them to our next meeting.”

Thank you again for a great night and if we are ever in the Chicago area, we will be sure to book again.

Regards,



Michael Massa

John and his band were absolutely incredible. Each and every person involved in every aspect of this ensemble were amazing. We wanted a good band and got a GREAT band! Guests are still raving about them and their music. So many people danced and everyone was smiling. I will follow them and make sure if anyone asks for a band recommendation that this band is the one!
