|Birthday||'This is just a thank you message for a great evening on Saturday. I had a wonderful birthday and received so many compliments on the band and the contribution you all made to making the evening such a happy occasion. I know you had to battle with a great gender inbalance (but that made it more fun trying to remember not only the steps but what gender you were!) but your good calling and witty remarks just neatly balanced the night. I've had so many messages today saying what a great night everyone had. Please pass on my thanks to the whole band.'|
|Wedding||'Just wanted to say thanks for great music and a great ceilidh, and also for being so tolerant about the delay in starting the dancing. I had no idea that the food would take so long to serve! I was really chuffed that so many people - including most of the kids - got up to dance. I was also worried that we might not fit into the small space but it all worked out.|
|Event||'I would just like to thank you enormously for coming last night. It was a great evening and people were really energised by it. Many compliments have been paid, both for the playing and for Robin's ability to herd cats, and more than that, a number of cats who had English as a second language and for whom the notion of a dosey do was a complete mystery!. I think part of the success of the evening was also your ability just to go with the flow and be patient with a late running event and really get into their space in terms of providing a fun evening.|
