Oh my Gosh Wes...I have heard so many positive comments from people about the band that night. I received 3 phone calls during the party telling me how wonderful everything was. So many nice compliments ! Jules also told me that you agreed to play at our picnic at the end of June. I was so happy to hear that. You have no idea how much I wanted to be at the party. Thanks for all your efforts in working with us at the club. I'm sure that the word of how fun it was that night is being passed around. Word gets spread to other clubs very fast. Thanks for everything Wes

If you are searching for a multi talented band that will add entertainment and fun to your party, then look no further!
The Other Side will meet and surpass any expectations you could possibly have.
If fact, if these boys can't set your toes a tapping then your foot must be asleep. We have had all kinds of bands play at our club but this band performs on a much higher level. The perfect mix of fun and professionalism. The Other Side are the definition of country gentlemen

Hi Wes -

Just wanted to get in touch with you (and all the guys) to extend our most humble thanks to all of you for the fantastic evening we had when you were here recently. Everyone down here at the campground absolutely raved about the band. And around here, word spreads fast and I know everyone will remember "The Other Side" for a long, long time!

You're definitely the best entertainment this campground has ever had! We're all looking forward to seeing you here again next year. In fact, we're trying to organize an outing for many of us to come out to see you when you play in Ottawa in September.

Again, from Sandy, Mongo, Jill and the whole gang here at Hide Away Lakes - MANY THANKS - YOU GUYS ROCK!

Hey Wes, I can't say enough about the positive feedback I got from everyone about your band performance on 9/22. You guys did an amazing job! Everyone thought I was some kind of hero for finding you guys! Please feel free to forward this along to your band mates. I loved how enthused everyone was in wanting you to do an encore song or two.
Thanks for the great entertainment!

You guys were the BEST at Leisure Lake last night. My husband never danced so much in his life. I usually have to beg him to dance, even at wedding receptions. Not last night. I was amazed Ernie, how much you sound like the original artist. Thanks again.

Really enjoyed your show tonight at the LaPorte County Fair. We've been enjoying your music for years! Keep up the good work!
