Client Compliments


Our members could not have been more energized by your performance on Saturday! You were a complete success and added to the overall excitement of the evening. I have never seen so many of our members enjoying themselves, dancing the night away. The compliments were overwhelming at our regular weekly meeting today. Members were already requesting you for next year. You exceeded our expectations in every way!

Please feel free to use us as a reference. We would be happy to share our experience, as well as our intention to have you for our event next year.

With warmest regards,

Hi Rick,

You played for my daughters wedding on June 23rd (Ashley and Shaun) at Medina CC. Our friends and family are still buzzing about the music at the wedding. You were terrific. We hope that you had fun also, hopefully feeding off of the energy from the guests. We just got the videos from Ashley and Shaun. What an awesome night. Your group made it that way. I don't know how to say thank you enough.

I periodically go to your website to see where you are playing. We will be coming to Carrie Cerino's to see you.

I also see that you must have recently booked New Years at St. Ambrose in Brunswick. Is this open to the public and do you have a contact for us to be able to get tickets? We are interested in bringing a group of people. Thanks again for a great night that many will remember for a long, long time.

Bill Franz

We'll ROCK your party!
