Dear Richard
Just wanted to say a big belated thank you to you and the rest of Perfect Blend your fabulous performance at our wedding last month. We had such a wonderful and this was really topped off by a brilliant evening of dancing and I have to say some rather bad singing on our part!! – Best wishes and thanks again, Fran & Rich

I wanted to say Thank You so much for all of your assistance in booking and handling The Perfect Blend & Madison Live. It was a challenge trying to find and secure bands that we felt confident in from so far away and you definitely helped us do that. The event went very well and we owe much thanks to you and Emily. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and we thank you again for everything! We will definitely keep you in mind for any future events we do in London. – Best Wishes! Brittany Milton

Please pass the following message onto Richard Baker and all members of the Perfect Blend band. We have just returned from holiday and have been watching a video of the wedding of Laura and Joe (Mon 28th August at Chigwell.) It was a fantastic day for all of us, culminating in a party which we will remember for a very long time. The band were brilliant, best we have ever heard at a wedding. All those dancing had a great evening, but also so many of the people who weren’t dancing have commented that it was a lovely evening just listening to the band and enjoying the music. Many, many thanks to all of you guys for doing such a brilliant job and giving us all such great memories. – Best wishes, Ian and Janice Bell (Laura’s Mum and Dad.)

Hi Richard,
I just wanted to thank you and the rest of the guys in Perfect Blend for the wonderful performance you gave at our wedding reception on May 20th. Lots of people commented on the great music and my bridesmaid and I rarely left the dancefloor! I would certainly recommend you to others – thank you very much for playing – Kindest regards, Charlotte

They said; ‘ Thank you so much for such a fantastic night. Everyone said how brilliant you were.’
