Just to let you know that Peggy was a great success at our event last night and provided just the sort of background music we required. Everyone was really pleased with the arrangement. She came and set up without any fuss and joined us for a post event drink in the showroom. Many thanks for your help with this. I shall certainly contact you the next time we require some musical entertainment.
I am emailing with regards to Peggy, who kindly played for us at our event in Holborough on Friday 24th. She did an excellent job and sounded amazing, so thank you all very much!
