"[my client] was considering flying a band in from Sydney, he was not convinced that a kiwi band could get so many people from so many different countries up and dancing. There was no doubt on the night that you did in fact surpass all our expectations. It rocked! There is nothing quite like being in the midst of thousands of writhing bodies and smiling faces... it was universally hailed as a terrific party and much of this is due to you guys."
