    Our brilliant party

    Alex, Thank you so much for all the hard work you put in to make our opening day so special.

    We could not fault a thing. You were always on hand to answer any of our questions throughout the lead up to the event. The day itself went seamlessly, we didn't need to worry about anything as you and the guys had it all in hand. The versatility of what you did with the acoustic set, the rat pack set and the disco, went so well together.

    Having worked alongside you at other events and the way the soul band gets people on the dance floor, we knew we had made the right choice to ask you to help.

    Alex Chapman's reply:

    Thanks, Adrian.
    It's always a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to many more!
