Thanks also for letting my Dad get up and play a song with you – that was a high-light of the night for me watching Dad play – and he probably felt really cool too!! Thanks for giving me so many fun memories from the ‘party’ part of our wedding! Friends of ours who came to the wedding who are looking for a band have already been asking us about you – and we will certainly be recommending you guys!”
