I just wanted to let you know that we were delighted with Jazz Café on Tuesday evening and I have received many compliments on their performance. Would you be kind enough to pass on our thanks to them.

Kind regards

October 2008


Could you please pass on our sincere thanks the the Lost Boys who recently played at our wedding. They did a fantastic job and everyone really enjoyed themselves.

Many thanks
Paula and Andy

Dear Marcus,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the Motor City band personally for playing at our Wedding on the 11th October 2008.

As a music lover I had previously had nightmares about the quality of wedding entertainment on offer at weddings, especially after attending various others which I felt had been let down by a cheesy disco at the end, playing the usual dire mixture of songs from nasty wedding compilation albums, all I can say is they should have booked the Motor City Party Band because you were fantastic.

The first dance of “Something” by George Harrison, although not Motown, was covered with such finesse even my seriously fanatical Beatles fan friend was deeply impressed. Great vocals and a spot on guitar solo were the comments.You judged the mood perfectly throughout the evening, managing to get almost every single guest on the dance floor at some point. I think it speaks volumes for this to range from my 10 year old cousin to my 85 year old grandmother.

Everyone was commenting on how wonderful the band was, some people said you were the best band they had ever seen! others said how they would like to book you themselves in the future, so expect some more contacts for sure.

Finally I would like to say a special thanks for traveling to play for us, we look forward to booking you again in London either personally or as a recommendation at work.

All the very best
Oliver and Claire

On behalf of everyone at Maggie’s, I’d just like to thank John Thomas and his band for such a wonderful performance on Friday evening at this year’s London Night Hike. They did an absolutely fantastic job setting the mood for all participants as they came out of City Hall having registered for the walk.

Likewise they provided a fantastic accompaniment for the walkers as they left City Hall and made their way along the Queen’s Walk at the start of the route. John was even keen to come back the following morning which unfortunately was too late for us to organise but the thought was very much appreciated and we would definitely book them again for future events.

Once again thank you for organising the band for us and we hope to work together again in the future.

Events Manager

Hi Tom,

Just wanted to say that was an absolutely top quality evening’s entertainment you provided on Saturday night. It was just perfect. Everyone was asking who you were and commented how fantastic you were. Also, top job with the first dance – you have no idea how much I was dreading it! – but it was great, and I actually really enjoyed doing it!

Also, a quick mention to the lead singer – he was brilliant and his dedication to Lucy for Brown Eyed Girl was great.

Top night had by all!!

Cheers again

Hey Rudy,
We wanted to thank you guys for a fab evening, you did so well and we loved every second of it. Thanks again for learning wonderwall for us, you did amazing. So many people commented on how good you were, and that you were the best live band they had ever seen.

Thank you so much

Dear Marcus Malone and Motor City Party Band,

We are so sorry it has taken us so long to write to you to say thank you very much for the amazing music you provided at our wedding reception on 24 August 2008. I started my new job as a teacher as soon as we got back from our honeymoon and since then it has been non stop work in the evenings and most weekends. We also moved fairly soon after the wedding and, although this was only to the flat next door, the move was quite stressful and took up a lot of our spare time.

We had a fabulous time at our reception and we really had a fantastic time on the dance floor, as did many of our guest. The music we had at our wedding was very important to us and our parents, in order that the right atmosphere was created, and we couldn’t have imagined the music and dancing to go any better. As soon as the the music stated the dance floor quickly filled up and it remained full all night. We really do feel that you are a truly brilliant band and so many of our friends and family have commented on how amazing you were.

Many, many thanks again and we wish you all well and hope you are all having a happy and successful New Year.

Kind regards,
Sarah and Keith Curtis

Wedding reception on 23rd August 2008

Dear Tom,

We would like to thank you and all “The Lost Boys” for providing such an excellent evening’s entertainment for our wedding on 23rd August 2008. The music was fantastic, just what we hoped for, and enticed all the guests on the dance floor over the course of the evening – jostling for space at certain times!

All our friends and family have commented on the quality of the band, in many cases, as the most memorable part of the wedding! Most importantly, we had a wonderful evening, in no small part down to the music and dancing, so many thanks. We are very glad you were able to travel up to Suffolk to help make it such a successful party. Would happily recommend “The Lost Boys” to anyone else looking for an excellent live band for their party.

Best wishes,
Kate and David Adams

Hi Marcus

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the band for a wonderful performance on Friday. Everyone commented on how great you were. I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as Grant and I did.

Thanks again.

Best wishes,

Tropicana blew our minds at our wedding. Super professional from the first moment we made contact and a seriously slick operation on the night. The entire room was whooping with delight when the girls came down the stairs in their feathers and the energy the band created was incredible. They really set the party alight; the atmosphere was electric and our guests just couldn’t get enough of them. This is an extremely talented band; if you want your party to go off with a bang, book them now, you will not be disappointed.

Again, Leo, HUGE thanks to you and your band. We just loved you guys.

Keep in touch

I was extremely impressed with the professionalism and musicianship of the band. Many of our guests commented on how great the band sounded and enquired about your details. I was really very happy with how things went, and your flexibility in the lead up to the day in accommodating our desired playlist was brilliant. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to potential clients, or employing you again for functions I may organise in the future. Please feel free to quote me on that or pass on my details as a potential referee.

Thanks again Leo – I really appreciate it!

Kind Regards,
John V


Just a quick email to say that Carribe Steel were brilliant on Saturday.

Thank you
Jodie Guilford

Hi Marcus

Would just like to say how fantastic the performance by you and your band was on Saturday 2nd August. Every single person at the reception has commented on how great the music was and how you were able to get everyone dancing, young and old.

The way you sang our first dance song was truly memorable and my wife even told me it was better than the original, which I agree with. Especially given the short amount of time in which you learnt the song.

We wish to give our gratitude for make our wedding even more unforgettable, and would recommend you whole heartedly to everyone.

Many thanks

“Sara, David and I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful performance you gave at our wedding at Dartmouth House. So many of our guests commented on what a fantastic pianist you are – we all enjoyed the music so much. It was just fantastic – thank you for making our day so special.

Winchester, 19th July 2008

Dear Marcus,

Sorry this has been a while in coming forward, we have just returned from a fantastic honeymoon in Fiji and California (and now feel very cold indeed having been in 90+ degrees for the last three weeks!!)

We had a great day on the wedding and I wanted to write to thank you for your utmost professionalism and dedication the job in hand -which was making our wedding evening a great night for everyone, and getting people who I’ve never seen move out of their chairs at weddings previously, up on that dancefloor shakin their thang!! You were all we had hoped for and more and I can only genuinely thank you for helping our wedding to be so much fun.
Everyone commented on what a great band you are and how much fun you gave to the party. I was only too sorry that I didn’t get to spend more time on the dancefloor (although that might have been in everyone’s best interests given my general lack of co-ordination…!!!) the night seemed to whizz by so fast, it was so much fun. I also would like to thank you for being flexible regarding the timings etc – my father and I had previously had a few heated debates about the fireworks as he kept changing his mind on the timings of doing it – so I really appreciated you being generous in your time and the general organization of everything with him changing his mind at the last minute!

Many thanks again and kind regards


I am writing to sincerely thank you for all your efforts in organising the musicians from the Carribe Steel Band Trio to play at our recent Awards Day.
We received so many lovely comments from guests and students about the quartet, and they really helped to create exactly the right atmosphere for our celebrations.

Kind regards and many thanks,

Julieanna Bergmann

Dear Sirs

I wanted to thank Music for London for organising the Carribe Band for our London office barbeque yesterday evening. We were blessed with the weather and doubly blessed with musicians who provided the right ambiance for a truly great night.
The band was extremely helpful and made the party go with a swing.
Thank you very much indeed.

Louis Tolaini

Dear Leo,

Thanks so much for entertaining us, it was amazing! Everybody loved and said it was the best party ever, the best wedding band ever too. We are very grateful to you and your band (a BIG special thank you to Vanessa she was FANTASTIC, everybody loved her, her voice is beautiful and she is loads of fun!)


Kind regards,

Hi Leo,

Sorry I missed you, and apologies for not emailing you sooner to say a massive thank you. Everyone had a fantastic time and the dancers were amazing! Thank you so much. I more than happy to recommend you.

Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.


June 2008

Madison Live were absolutely amazing at our wedding! They really rocked and got everyone – all ages – on the dance floor for the whole night. So many people commented on how fantastic they were and what a great set they played. We enjoyed our wedding so much and they really made the reception for us. Please pass on our comments and thanks.
Kind regards,


Dear Rudy,

A huge thank you to you and your band members for your part in making our party such a huge success. EVERYONE said how fantastic you all were and the fact that the dance floor was permanently full rather speaks for itself. You really were brilliant and we would not hesitate to recommend you. It was so kind of you to keep playing past one o’clock and we really could have danced all night!

With kind regards.
Matthew & Jenny Read

Honestly, I just wanted to send a thank you kindly for the wonderful performance at the Midsummers Night Ball on 20 June. Everyone was greatly impressed and having a quartet playing for the first two hours was hailed as ” a stroke of genius”. Thanks again – you were all amazing!

We were delighted with Udit and Robert¹s performance last Saturday. Many of our guests have mentioned how much they liked the tabla/sitar duo. The sound was just right for our event which had a notable Indian theme.

Please pass on my thanks to Udit and Robert. I hope they enjoyed the event as well.

With best wishes, Terry

Thanks for everything. I just wanted to let you know how professional and nice all three of the acts you provided were. I was so impressed with how they handled things (it was slight chaos setting up Bollywood Strings and Chinese Rose Band). All three of them were great as well, and really added to the ball and atmosphere.

All the best,
Patrick Walters

May 2008

Just wanted to say a big thank you to the Motor City Group for playing at my wedding in May. They were absolutely brilliant and the dance floor was packed all night long! All my guests commented on how great they were and a few have even asked for your number for their upcoming weddings.

Please pass my thanks to Marcus and the band.

Carly and Marek

Absolutely fabulous

Sara & Rob

Dear Tomasso

I wanted to thank you and your band member for once again helping to make yesterday’s Tick Tock Club event such a success. We really do appreciate that you came in especially to help us celebrate reaching this important milestone. The music was perfectly pitched and we have had a lot of great feedback about your set.

I look forward to hearing about your future performances via your mailing list, but until then.

Many thanks again.

With best wishes,
Sarah White

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!

Thanks again..

I just wanted to say a huge thank-you to you and the “Lost Boys” for a great performance at our Xmas Party last Friday. You really are a fabulous band and created the perfect party atmosphere, probably our best party ever.

Thanks again, all the best.

November 2007

Hi Tom

Thank you so much for playing absolutely brilliantly at our wedding at Penshurst Place on 24th November. You created a great atmosphere, got people on the dance floor and kept them there – great choice of songs. Thanks for learning Chelsea Dagger and doing “I would walk 500 miles..” – we love them and now think of our wedding every time we hear them. Hey Jude went down a storm too – we had a big laugh when the photos came back of us singing! So many people have commented on what a fantastic band we had and we will certainly be recommending you – actually we have to the venue already for their future wedding bookings. Hope that’s ok!

A very happy New Year to you all!

Best wishes

Sarah and Chris

I hope you had a good weekend. I just wanted to let you know that Giant we absolutely superb at my clients event on Saturday 24 November 2007. They put on an amazing performance and Sherina White together with the choir was an absolute pleasure to work with. Sherina was extremely professional and if at all possible I would like to request that we work with the same singers again on Saturday 15 December 2007 at The Dorchester.
Thank you as well Titus for all your help and assistance, much appreciated.

I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Kind regards,


October 2007


Just a few lines to say how fantastic Rudy And The Rentboys were on 26th October. The quality of their music was outstanding and they really made our party. They were very professional and I would definitely recommend them to anyone In fact I already have!

Thanks loads

Jo Blackman

September 2007

I just wanted to say a very belated thanks to you and to Lucinda for all you did to make our wedding party on the 8th September special. Lucinda was fantastic (if a little too good looking for a prima donna bride’s tastes!!) and lots of guests commented on her performance and the wonderful atmosphere she created. You were equally professional and reassuring throughout the whole process, for which many thanks.

I’m not planning on repeating the wedding experience, but if ever we have a party again I will be sure to remember you both.

Many thanks,


I am writing to say a huge thank you to Rockafella for Saturday night. They were fantastic, they created a great atmosphere for my 30th birthday, and were loved by all my guests. I would recommend them highly, could you please pass my thanks on to them and feel free to use this testimonial on your website / promotional material.


Please thank all the bands for a truely wonderful and magical day, we all enjoyed the music so much and I hope that many of my friends will use you in the future, I definitely will and will promote your company whenever given the opportunity, thanks again for everything, love Liz McEwen

Please thank rockafella so much for making my evening so wonderful, they were so tolerant of my friends and genuinely lovely, thank you so much, really looking forward to Saturday, see you then liz.

August 2007

Dear Marcus,

I had to write and say on behalf of all of us how fantastic you, Chantelle and the band were at Melissa and Ben¹s wedding on Sunday 26th August. The dance floor was packed all evening and it was definitely because of you and your music. All of our guests praised you and said how much they enjoyed your performance. What was especially nice was that we chose you because you are so different from the usual wedding bands and our guests thoroughly enjoyed hearing you perform.

I would also like to personally thank you for allowing my father-in-law Sid to join your band for the evening. It was very special for all of us to hear him play at such an important event.

Please pass on my thanks and praise to the rest of the crew.

I wish you continued success for the future.

With kind regards

Adrienne Susman

Dear Lost Boys,
We’re writing to say thanks for the wonderful set you played on the evening of our wedding at Wiston House. It made for a brilliant end to an incredible day. Everyone from the youngest person (the pageboy trying to breakdance) to the oldest (the grandmother who refused to leave until you finished playing) thoroughly enjoyed your performance. Your last song (Hey Jude) and the impromptu mass dance to it will stay with us for a long time!

Many thanks again for helping us to have they day of our lives and whenever we are booking a band in the future yours will be the first name we think of.
Kind regards

Becky and Stuart McInnes

I write to thank you and Andrew for making my husbands 40th Birthday Party such a tremendous success last Saturday We, plus every one of our guests praised Andrew’s voice and thoroughly enjoyed his performance. So much so, that many people expressed an interest in Andrew for their forthcoming parties!

Thank you again for all your help.


Jan Peters

July 2007
Now that my wedding has been and gone, I’d like to thank you for helping me book Cy Winstanley. He was absolutely fantastic and a consumate professional.

Not only did he learn a special song that I happened to mention in casual conversation (an obscure Maori love song), but he played all night long, which was absolutely awesome.

Apart from leaving my guests truly gobsmacked by his excellent vocals and expert guitar playing, by the end of the night it felt like saying goodbye to a friend; someone who’d gone out of his way to make our night a success.

In a nut shell, he turned perhaps your average wedding (with a cheesy dj, cake and champagne) into the best night of my life – leaving my new wife and I with many special memories, which will always stay with us. (Many of my friends and family were equally moved by his music.)

Perhaps the best thing about Cy, as well, is his easy going, modest and warm personality, which shines through his music. At times I felt privileged to be listening to what is undoubtedly an outstanding talent… I wish him every future
success; he deserves it.

I want to thank you as well for making the booking so easy and transparent. I’ll certainly use MFL again in the future, and feel free to contact me if you need any client references etc – I’ll happily offer my support.

With many thanks,

Sam and Questa Karlsson

Thank you so much for a truly spectacular performance. Tropicana were in a class all of their own, and for me, shone out as being the best act of the night.

Thanks for traveling all that way, can’t wait till we can use you again!!

Warmest regards,

June 2007
Just a quick note to say a big thank you to you and in particular the MFL Brass Band who played at our wedding. They were perfect.

Our day was wonderful but a little chaotic due to the weather….and all the band members were brilliant. They coped well with being pushed from one place to another as we tried to deal with the restrictions imposed by the weather.

Please, please let them know that “my husband and I” were delighted with the atmosphere they created and thank them all very, very much.

Kind regards.

Thank you and your wonderful steel band for making our wedding day so special. They were all that we had wished for and my friends and family all enjoyed them greatly.

I will definately recommend them in the future.

February 2007

Hi Marcus

Just back from honeymoon this week. We wanted to write straightaway to thank you for such a fantastic performance at our wedding on 3 February. I know we sent a text from the airport (we couldn’t wait to thank you! although, our phones then didn’t work abroad) but we really wanted to expand on that and to show our appreciation in full.

As you probably gathered, Paul and I quite like to dance! But what thrilled us most, was that our guests didn’t leave the dance floor all night! We’ve been to lots of weddings with live bands in the past, and although they are always the best kind of music, often the dancefloor is sadly empty! But Motor City have that special something. As soon as people walked into the room – young and old – they couldn’t stop dancing!!

I remember going out of the room briefly and hearing you ask ‘is everyone having a good time?!’ and hearing a huge roar. As a bride, that is just the best feeling in the world!

Our only regret was that we ran over on our meal, giving less time for the party – we wished we could have danced all night!

We’ve had so many compliments I can’t tell you. You were definitely the life and soul of the party, but guests have also remarked how amazing it was that every single band member was incredibly talented. It’s very unusual to want to watch everybody at once!!

You have such an amazing voice and an incredible stage presence. We were so lucky to have you there to make our party go with a bang.

Titus, thank you also to Music for London for helping to make the arrangement – and for such an easy booking process. We will certainly pass on your details to family and friends as we can’t recommend you enough.

We can’t thank you enough!

very best wishes

Katie & Paul


We just want to say a really big thank you to the Lost Boys who played at our son’s wedding in Feb 2007 at very short notice.

They were absolutely fantastic, everyone said how good they were, as soon as they came on, everyone was up and dancing!
They made the wedding celebrations so much fun and truly memorable.

Thank you so much.

Deborah & Brian Hepburn

Dear Titus and Marcus

I just wanted to say a really big thank you to you both for a wonderful evening, the band were all absolutely fantastic – the evening went down really well – everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I’ve had loads of feedback as to how great the band were, the music really made the night.

Thanks again, and hope you both have a great New Year.

Kind regards


Dear Cath,

Happy New Year and a rather belated thank you for organising such fantastic acts for our Christmas party a few weeks back. Frankie was really good, he sang well and created a great atmosphere, but of course, the star was Elvis.

He arrived early having flown in from Berlin. He helped us with the preparation and sound checks etc. He then did his fabulous act. Everyone loved him! I invited both acts and their supporters to join us for dinner, which they did and then gave us one more for the

It was an excellent evening. Without doubt, I will be back to use your services again. Thanks a lot.



December 2006

Just wanted to let you know that the band were a hit at our party last night – they truly rocked! I have had nothing but great reviews about the music and the band members themselves and they really delivered on the night.

Please pass on my thanks and compliments again to them all, and also thank you to you for all your help in checking the venue out and booking the band for us. I would have no hesitation in coming back to you for future events.



November 2006


Now we are back from our honeymoon (boo hiss!), we wanted to drop you a note.

We wanted, firstly to say thank you. I realise that I (Angela) must have said that to you at least a dozen times on the day, but we were really over the moon with your performance on the night. Your total professionalism and talent as a band really shone through. As for our first dance music, how you managed to learn that in such a short space of time and perform it so perfectly – we were amazed! Also, we are so grateful to you for being so flexible with our family – we realise at times it can’t have been easy with them suddenly appearing on stage, but you were so welcoming it was a joy to be part of the audience.

Please convey our thanks to the other members of the band, and particularly to your vocalist. Although she was not well that night she didn’t let it impair her performance one little bit. You were all fantastic!

If you ever need a reference, you know where we are.

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

Stephen and Angela Moore

September 2006
Just a brief note to say thank you, and to ask that you pass our thanks on to both Madison and Sara, for helping to make our event the great success that it was.

Their flexibility during the evening was greatly appreciated.

Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the music throughout the evening and I’ve heard nothing but high praise for all the artists involved.

My thanks again.

Kind regards,


Penny Pamplin 30th September 2006 Venue : The Bell Public House.

Sorry its taken so long for me to get back to you but I just wanted to say what a fantastic singer Kevin is as Frank Sinatra he made my wedding day go off superbley. People haven’t stopped talking about it and with Kevin singing I achieved the atmosphere I was looking for. Everyone thought he was fabulous so I can’t thank him enough for making my day!

Please could you pass on my thanks.

Kind regards,

Dear Sirs,

Wedding of Jane Perris and Gavin Bell – 15th July, 2006

Just a note on behalf of Jane and Gavin to thank ” The Lost Boys ” for producing such wonderful music for this event last Saturday.

Booking a band blind, without the opportunity if hearing them in person, was a slight concern but we need not have worried. The quality of the music and it’s wide range had our guests on the dance floor from the beginning to the end of the evening.

We would certainly make use of ” The Lost Boys ” services on a suitable occasion in the future. Meanwhile, can you please thank them on our behalf for making Jane and Gavin’s day such a special one.

Yours faithfully,

Jackie and Harry Perris


I just wanted to say a big thank you to the Carribe duo who played for us on Saturday as I wasn’t able to say on the night. They were great.

Kind Regards


June 2006

Again – thanks so much for providing Marcus and his band, they were absolutely brilliant. And there have been so many compliments about them. We have received lots of lovely responses from everybody. We really enjoyed having you there you helped to make a fantastic night.

Dear Sara,

I would like to thank you for your wonderful singing at my daughter Tarika’s wedding last Saturday. The entire ceremony was made particularly memorable because of the music, and I have received numerous comments on your lovely voice and how special you made the ceremony.

Thank you so much for making it such a great day, and I hope we have the opportunity of hearing you sing again.

With thanks from Tarika & myself,

Your Sincerely,

Gill and I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the guys for providing such a brilliant performance at our silver wedding and batmitzvah party on Saturday. So many people came up to us during and after the party and commented on how fantastic Groover were – to dance to and also just to listen to. We did our best to make life difficult for you by blowing the mains fuse ten minutes into the party but you weren’t fazed and fortunately we were able to get the power back in time for your first set. Everyone loved the sound – the tight funky soul was just the right groove for the wide age range at the party and you just had to get up and dance. Even my elderly parents danced! Such great musicians. You were all also such great people, and so helpful when things went wrong and in sound-checking my best man and myself.

Thanks again.

Hi Leanne,

Thank you so much for your amazing performing on Tuesday evening, you were absolutely fantastic.

Your presence and music created such a great atmosphere, which is an absolute credit to you both, as all the guests had such a good time.

Our party planner Charlotte said how impressed she was with not only the quality of your performance and your professional manner, but also how genuine and warm you both are. She too said we could not have had any better performers – you were absolutely perfect.

We have received such brilliant feedback about the two of you. The evening would not have been the same without you both.

Thank you again, and we will certainly be asking you back!

Kindest regards,

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.

Kind regards.

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!

Many Thanks

Jiang and her team were exceptional – our client was absolutely delighted with their entertainment and they were a great

bunch of people, really sociable and very eager to please. I think all of 500 guests were amazed, having not seen anything like this in Jersey before.

Many thanks to you and your team for all your help and patience it was greatly appreciated. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

Kind regards,


January 2006

I would just like to thank you for arranging a workshop with the fabulous group ‘Ilusion Flameno’. Angela and Fernando came on Thursday to deliver a two hour workshop which was a basic introduction to clapping, stamping and choreography. The workshop was challenging, informative and very well taught. Angela built up a really good relationship with the students and the work they produced was amazing, performing a whole dance and song at the end of the two hours. The workshop then ended with a performance from the musicians. I would definitely ask them to come back again!

Kind regards,

Good Morning Sara,

Both of my managers came in this morning saying how fantastic the singers were, and that they added such a lovely atmosphere to the evening. Eleanor said that both their professionalism and their talents were of the highest calibre, and this was noted by many of the guests. I wish I had been able to attend the event myself, but unfortunately I’ve been a bit under the weather lately – it sounds as though it was a brilliant evening. Please pass on our gratitude to the quartet, we hope that they enjoyed themselves as well.

Thank you so much for all of your assistance, we will most certainly be recommending Music for London to our partners and clients! And should we require any vocalists for any of our future events, we shall no doubt be in touch.

Many thanks again, and have a wonderful holiday season.

Kindest regards,


Marriott Grand Residence Club

Dear Sara

Just a quick note to let you know that everything went extremely well at the Child Line Ball on Tuesday night. Caribbe were just perfect at the drinks reception as were the Bayswater Blasters for the dinner. Happily the guests took ages to walk in / get seated so they were treated to lots of carols from the girls, and we still managed to get them away by 8.30 which was good.

So thank you for all your help. You will be pleased to hear that there were about 200 CEO’s & senior heads of marketing from major UK Companies in our guest audience, and of course, any enquiries for either of your performers we will send over your way immediately!

Again, thanks & regards


November 2005

“Take one special occasion, add over a hundred guests, sprinkle a little light and some fine wine to taste. Once all of this has been thoroughly mixed, slowly include your Frank Sinatra and you will find you have the perfect night.

Kevin (from here on known as Frank) was the epitome of professional entertainment going so far as to allow the groom to sing along with him.

When I first saw Frank enter the room I was a little apprehensive as he was dressed as the young Frank, this assumption was dashed by his choice of songs. They not only enhanced a time we shall never forget but reflected in our opinion the great style and uniqueness that was Frank.

In a sentence, I want this man at our birthdays, weddings, christenings, Christmas…….. I think you get the picture

It only leaves me to thank Frank for being with us. Thank you Frank (Kevin)”

We are pretty sure he will have future bookings from our friends.

Thanks so much.

Tracy & Conrad

We wanted to write to say a massive thank you for your wonderful performance at our wedding. The music and singing was fantastic and you really got our guests going. You managed to create exactly the atmosphere we wanted, all our friends have commented about the band and said how great you were.

The Jewish music was also great and even though lots of our guests didn’t know what to do everyone still joined in and loved every minute!

We have wonderful photos of everyone dancing and having a great time. We got quite a surprise when we came in to poppers and dancing and it really set the night off with a bang!

We wish you well for the future and will definitely be recommending you to all our friends.

Thanks again

London Bridge Walk – Childrens Society

The event was a huge success, and the entertainment really topped it off! It was great location, apart from being a little cramped, but being on a grass patch provided quite a fesitval atmosphere. Juan Two really got the crowd going and I remember one time turning around and watching them dancing and rattling the bucket and everyone singing along so it was fab. And the Steel Band were brilliant, shaded by some trees and everyone was chilling out on the grass absorbing the sounds. Excellent choice – thank you so much for your help, it really made the day perfect!

“Pastiche were brilliant – they really did their stuff and everyone loved them – I’d recommend them to anyone……and they’re really nice guys!
Thanks to everyone at Music For London”.

Birthday Party

They were great and so were the dancers, they made the evening very special. Thanks a million, will definitely use you guys again when I book our corporate events.



Birthday Party

Can I just say a great big thank you to you and the rest of Fully Funktional for making our Birthday Party such an incredible success. The quality of the band was always going to be the make or break of the party and you really turned out to be the MAKE of our evening, I have lost count of the number of guests who have raved about the fantastic entertainment that you delivered. Can’t wait to be 40 again so that I can have a re-run! Thanks is not enough but thanks! Pasqualina and Richard”
I am happy for anyone who wants to contact me to have my email address too.

To Mick & crew, Thank you for providing the best Irish music we could have wished for, at my daughter’s baptism, on Sunday 14th August, at the Nyton Hotel, Ely. You were that good, you made a perfect day even more perfect with your quality sounds & professionalism. I look forward to recommending you to all! Thank you from
Olivia Boardman

Just a quick note to thank you for introducing us to the Two Lips band who played for us at our party last Saturday evening. They were fantastic!

Adrian and his band were so professional and really brought our party alive. Excellent. The same comments were conveyed to us by our guests and I would appreciate it if you would pass our thanks and appreciation to them.

Kind regards

Sorry it has taken so long for me to write to you, but July has been nothing but crazy! Anyway, please pass on my thanks to the Lost Boys- they were fantastic!! We had nothing but compliments. They definitely made the party! Thanks for all your help, and I’ll be sure to recommend them to anyone who asks
(Howlin, now Jarzebowski….)

Please could you pass on our thanks the band who played for our wedding on 30th July. All I can say is that they were a fantastic live band and really made the evening for us. All we have heard since from our guests is ‘where did you find such a fantastic and professional band’ We thoroughly enjoyed them so please say a big thank you to the boys and we will not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family. And also thank you with all the booking arrangements to help make it a seamless event. kind regards.

Thanks so much for your kind email – we had a fabulous day and so many people commented on how great Marcus and his band were. I have vivid memories of Murray (my husband!) singing “My Girl!” with Marcus in the middle of the dance floor – unforgettable!!
I can’t believe a month has gone by already – I’m very happy and am so glad we got the music right – he was just perfect.
Very best wishes,

I just wanted to let you know that everybody at the reception was absolutely thrilled. I don’t think there was one person that didn’t dance
to at least one song. They were so good that time just whizzed by with the usual stampeed for “more more” at the end. Just wanted to let you know that they were a fab band and it is no surprise that they have been signed up to a big deal. Many congratulations to them.
I will definitely use your services again should I find myself organising a similar big event

May 2005

We just wanted to write to thank John and his fellow musicians for a brilliant morning at school this morning. The teachers didn’t walk around the corridors this morning, they danced. The children and staff loved listening to the steel pans and we were very impressed with the way John and the others played for 3 hours without a break. We have ordered some steel pans that John is going to make for us, so we will be looking forward to taking delivery of those in September. I haven’t got much work done this morning because I was enjoying listening to the music too much!

Please pass on our thanks and hopefully we can book you again some time

Chris Wood, School Secretary

The John Hampden School, Wharf Road, Wendover

Thanks so much . I’ll be sending you a more formal letter shortly, but in the meantime – the band were fantastic! I was a bit worried at first that we didn’t have that many people to fill the dance floor, but by the beginning of their second set – almost everyone was up and dancing. It was great!

Just wanted to say that the musical duo were great, played just the right music and also the belly dancer was perfect. You were right she was everything you promised, young, slim and very pretty. The client was very pleased.

I am doing another event on the 16th June for a corporate event for 100 people. Need a band, something like the bootleg Beatles or similar or anything else that you could recommend. Either swing or soul or a covers band would be good?

Just a few words of congratulations for El Son Cubano – they performed wonderfully at our party last night. Everyone, young and not so young, thoroughly enjoyed their music and the whole spectacle of their performance. Their selection of music was great and their contribution made the whole evening a “night to remember”.

I hope El Son Cubano enjoyed themselves as much as they appeared to be doing – I know that every single person there was totally taken in by the Cuban atmosphere that was created by such wonderful music.

I would have no hesitation in recommending El Son Cubano and yourself, of course, to anyone.

Thank you very much for your prompt and efficient help in these arrangements.

With kind regards

“I had the job of finding a jazz quartet for a recent episode of Holby City – BBC Television and decided to search for the band I wanted through the ‘Music for London’ website. I came across Tomasso Starace and his band and thought that they would be perfect for the show. I found Music for London to be helpful, informative and efficient with my request.

Tomasso and his band lived up to every aspect of the booking, they were not only excellent, playing exactly what the director wanted, but were also charming and very patient throughout a long filming day.

I can highly recommend Tomasso and his band and also ‘Music for London’.

Amy Thornton – 2nd Assistant Director, BBC Television

Saturday February 26th 2005. It’s got to go down in history! What an awesome night. The Barmitzvah was perfect. Exactly how I imagined it would be.

If you want to view the highlights on DVD, let me know, it is fantastic!

Hey there,

I have emailed Richard directly to let him know this, but wanted to also let you know that we were very happy with his performance at our recent wedding. Richard was talented, professional, co-operative and friendly in all respects, and his music created exactly the atmosphere we were looking for. I’d definitely recommend him in the future!

Please pass on my thanks to Emily and the rest of the band members. They looked and sounded fantastic and I have had lots of people congratulate me on finding such a great band. They were very professional and helpful too, letting us use their microphone for the MD’s speech.

Just thought I’d drop you a short note to let you know how well Friday’s dinner went. The success of the night was in no small part due to the excellent services of the “Oreos”. As well as their superb performance, their professional and helpful attitude made my job significantly easier.

I’d also like to thank you for your help with booking the ladies “at short notice”. Although that event was the last I will be organising in my capacity as Mess Secretary, I will certainly recommend your services to my successor.

Many thanks

Thank you so much for organising our Band for our party on Sunday.

The band were absolutely fantastic, played to our crowd perfectly and were really, really fabulous people. They were the crowning glory of our party and really impressed all of our guests.

Thank you again

Just a quick note to say how pleased and impressed we were with the band. They were absolutely great and really helped make the evening.
Every comment we have had has been glowing and of course a lot of dancing was done (some of it better than others!)

A big thank you to Heidi and the guys for their efforts and thank you too Titus for smoothly dealing with everything before the day.

Best wishes

It was a one of those days when a dream has been realised thank you so much. Tomasso and the guys were great so friendly and the music superb, exactly what I wanted.

I sent a text to Tomasso thanking him and he has replied saying that they were so happy that they felt part of the whole thing, which is what I wanted them to feel.

Thanks again for your assistance to make the dream come true.

On behalf of my wife and for myself we would like “Music for London” to thank the Lost Boys for a very professional service and a superb night.

They entertained the smallest person (3 weeks old) to the oldest at 70 years old.

We have had such positive feedback and many enquiries about booking the band.

The night went to plan and Phil and I hope that the guys had as much fun playing as we did listening.

Birthday Party and Wedding Anniversary

A note to say thank you once again to you and Brendan for making our party on Saturday something really special. Kicking off with Dire Straits (one of my all time favourite bands) was brilliant and I can’t thank you enough for including ‘Crazy for You’ and ‘You’re Still the One’ as requested. Thank you too for sensing the mood of the party when it finally got a bit livelier and merging the 2nd and 3rd sets into one longer session. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone else having a party or wedding reception or similar occasion.

We’ve come back to earth now having done all the clearing up yesterday morning, hosted a BBQ for 12 yesterday lunchtime and gone back to work today but we have many happy memories of the celebrations for our milestone birthdays and wedding anniversary.

All kindest wishes

His music was thoughtfully chosen and wonderfully played in keeping with the occasion. So many of our guests commented and complimented him on his professionalism, and this reflected well on your organisation. We would have no hesitation in recommending him for similar events.

I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the service and assistance I received from both you and Udit regarding my birthday party on the 6th March 2004.

It makes a pleasant change to deal with people who genuinely enjoy their work, and put themselves out for their customers, leaving them to enjoy peace of mind and a thoroughly professional service.

Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to Udit for making my birthday one that I will remember for a long, long time, and a huge thank you to you for organising everything for me. Take care and good luck with everything in the future.

We had a great evening and Rockafella was really great. Caz and Brendon were fantastically good and the music they played was just what everybody liked.

Most of us were dancing after the food, even some who I have never seen on the floor before. If I had to organise another evening’s music, I would rebook Rockafella without hesitation, they were brilliant. Thanks for your help in organising them for us. Regards, Tony

The Steel Band were terrific – everybody at our Caribbean themed party loved the music. The guys were great fun and they even helped some people learn a bit about the drums in their break. The quality of the music was great and we enjoyed having the band there.

Thank you for being absolutely FANTASTIC. David and I both felt that we couldn’t have found a better band if we’d have looked for years. You were superb. Everyone loved it and you made the wedding even more special than it would have been otherwise.

Thank you again.

Thanks for the e-mail. Sorry not to have replied sooner, things are just about back to normal. We had an absolutely fantastic day, which David contributed to hugely. The venue, the music and the delivery came together perfectly – it couldn’t have been better.

If we had a £1 for every comment we’ve had with regards to the music and David’s performance we’d be a very rich newly married couple. Everyone has just raved about it (and continue to do so). Even the workers at the hotel!

Many thanks for your help.
