"Hi, we just wanted to say how AMAZING you all were on Saturday evening. You were all fantastic and exactly what we wanted. A lot of guests said you were the one of the best swing bands they have heard. We have also passed your details on to quite a few couples who have weddings coming up.
Thank you so much again."

"Hello Mike and Kate,
We want to thank you and everyone in your awesome band for making our evening truly magical! Our guests were very impressed by your performances. So did we! Great timing for our first dance.
You totally rocked (and jazzed)!
