Dear Titus

Just a quick email to thank you and the band for the music and entertainment they provided at our house party last Saturday. We all had an absolutely fantastic time and the Burritos were exactly what we were after, bringing their brilliant Mexican entertainment to our kitchen. Lots of people were asking for their details. We would definitely recommend them to anyone who wanted to add a bit of chilli spice and tequila to their party!
Best wishes for 2014

Dear wonderful Beat Burritos,

You made the party!

From your stunning clothes, mellow singing, irresistible rhythms and high class playing to your charming inter reaction with the guests, children and all (following the conga line, dipping in and out of the dome) and chatting in strong Mexican accents. You were a delight and created much surreal happiness. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

from Olivia’s mother

ps Olivia says she will send some pics on – they are good fun.

Dear Titus

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you for your help in organising the bands for Thursday. If you could also pass on my thanks to each of the acts I would really appreciate it.

Also thank you very much for Sean, he was a great help! The evening was really successful and it was great for El Caribe, Rococo and Geanina to be a part of it!

Thanks again

Kind Regards

Hi Titus

Just thought I would drop you a line to say how fantastic Udit and his colleague were on Saturday at our event.  Everyone commented on the brilliance of their music and how much the performance added to the overall ambience of the night.

I can truly say that every aspect of the performance was superb and the night would have been truly lacking without the presence of Udit and his colleague.
Thank you in assisting in organising the booking and please also pass on my heartfelt thanks to Udit and his colleague.

Kindest regards,

Hi Titus

My husband and I booked Doug for our wedding reception and he was brilliant!

Right from the start he was helpful; playing at an open mic night in Camden so that we could listen to him live and then proceeding to learn six songs that were special to us. He even nailed the first dance song and added a funky spin to it!

Doug is very personable and polite at all times. He has an amazing voice that you could listen to all day long, fantastic guitar skills and proved to be the right choice for our intimate venue.

Hello Titus,

I just wanted to write and let you know how pleased we were with the Kingston Duo at Rebecca and Simon’s wedding last Saturday. Alfie was always prompt to reply to emails, and was very friendly and helpful on the night, arriving early to allow plenty of time to set up and check arrangements with me.

And of course, most importantly, they are both superb musicians and their playing was enjoyed by absolutely all, creating a warm atmosphere with lots of dancing.
They were just what Rebecca had hoped for, and we would thoroughly recommend them.

Thank you again for your help

Professional, punctual and a joy to work with.

Thank you once again and I will most certainly be recommending your services to friends.

Hi Titus,

The performers were perfect, on time, very professional and very understanding of the brief.  The performances were thoroughly enjoyed by all attendees.  I would definitely book them again.

Hi I just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and the band. They were brilliant, everybody really enjoyed it. I especially liked being able to play with them and being told I was the happiest bride they had seen ?

Thank you again.

July 2013

Hi Marcus,

It’s been a bit hectic since the wedding so apologies for not getting in touch sooner.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you & the band for putting on such a great show at Northbrook Park for us. We thought you were absolutely amazing and we can honestly say our night would not have been the same without you. It was fantastic… ? We had so many comments regarding how good you guys were.

We have some great pictures of you all from the night, so if you need me to send these over to you for any reason, please let me know & I will happily send.

Thank you once again.


Hi Titus,

Apologies for the lateness of this note but I’ve gone straight into back to back events. I am still hopeful to write an official “thank you” letter when I get some time but in the meantime….

THANK YOU to Electric Blue Jewel who were superb. The girls looked great, they sounded amazing and were utter professionals throughout this event.

For some reason the boat engines made a lot of noise this years and we’re not sure why but the ladies handled it perfectly.
We had a glorious evening which meant a lot of guests went up on to the upper deck but those who did get chance to listen to Blue Jewel thought they were brilliant.

A big thank you to Blue Jewel and a big thank you to you for booking them.

Kind regards

Rio Showband at ‘Brent Celebrates a Golden Summer’ Event

The feedback we have has been extremely positive and your performance ended the event just as we had hoped. Your whole performance from beginning to end was full of colour, energy and show stopping sparkle.

The audience, whether young or old, were engaged throughout and the way everyone moved forward was testament to the fantastic costumes and wonderful music. I was up at the top end of the event for some of your performance and the stage looked fabulous, with light starting to fade, the colours on stage really stood out and made the whole thing look spectacular.

Your professionalism in setting up quickly was also greatly appreciated.

I have attached a couple of pictures that were taken on the day, I hope they reach you ok and are not too large to get through cyber space.

Thank you for all your help and support.

Kind regards

I wish him a bright future.

Hi Titus,

Thank you so much for the music on Sunday; everyone said it was one of the best things about the Feast. I was wondering if you might be available to perform again on 3 December. We’re putting on an extra special Christmas event in the evening between 5pm and 8pm with hot food, drink, performers, music and light display.

The steel band was lovely, Mr Thomas and his daughter were charmed our children, staff and parents! This was our first School Carnival, next year we may need more of the Thomas family (or other teachers) as a bigger sound would be even better!

Dear Colette (Long Notes)

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, you were absolutely brilliant and everyone was talking about what a beautiful touch your playing was, it turned something nice into something magical, and my mother even commented about what a lovely and charming woman you are too.  We can’t believe you took the time to learn the music we had suggested, including the L’Atalante theme, we are very grateful indeed.

We had a really amazing day and you contributed significantly to thank – so thank you.

Hi Colette

Thank you so much to The Long Notes for the amazing music you provided us on our wedding day. So many guests commented on how your music created the perfect atmosphere. The tune – “Ceremony” – that you learnt for us was just so wonderful and a few people stated it put the hairs up on the back of their neck when you played it. Thank you.

I hope you had a good weekend. I would just like you to pass on my thanks to Sam and the trio who played at our event on 12th May. They were a pleasure to work with, and the style of music and songs were perfect for our event. We had many guests compliment the trio during the evening!

I understand that my colleague has booked them for another event on 18th May, which I will not be here for. However I do hope they enjoyed themselves and that we can work together again soon.

I just wanted to drop you a note to say a HUGE thank you to you and the band for being absolutely amazing at our wedding. You were absolutely fantastic, had the dancefloor jumping and the Bugsy Malone song was the hi-light of the night – people are still talking about it.

It was an absolute honour to have you there and we will definitely be telling all our friends that are getting married to have you as their band.

All the best with the future.

Words can’t adequately express how much you and your team made my birthday party so special on Saturday. Everyone had a FANTASTIC time and I’ve been inundated with compliments about the ‘singers’.

Thank you so much again,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help with the organisation for the Hampton Court Flower Show last night.

Dear Miriam

Thank you to you and the rest of the ensemble for entertaining everyone with your beautiful music, you gave the finishing touch to a wonderful evening. The only constructive feedback we could possibly give is that your performance ended before our evening did, therefore next time we book you, we will have to ensure we book you for the entire evening.

We look forward to hearing you again!

Hi Marcus,

I hope you’re well. I just wanted to write you a quick note to say how fantastic you and your band were at our wedding on the 25th September. You were as good if not better than we remembered you and I can’t even tell you how many people commented on how great you were! (Almost everyone basically!)

I’ll definitely pass your name on to anyone I know who is getting married and that is looking for a band, and hope to see you again providing we’re then invited!!

You were professional and awesome as we both expected and it’s obvious that you enjoy what you do as well, which always helps!

Thanks again, please pass on our best to all your band mates, you all helped to make our day the perfect day it was.

Cheers Marcus,

Hi Graham,

I wanted to say a HUGE thanks for playing at the wedding. The ceremony music was exactly how we hoped it would be and the reception tunes were spot on. Shame about the weather but I think in the end, it added to the ‘true british’ feel of the day!

Thanks again,

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

Dear Cath,

Thank you very much for supplying the Karaoke/Bandoke band, they first performed and got everyone on their feet dancing, we then had our staff sing hits from the 80s right up to some recent hits.

Finally our CEO and Directors sang Dancing Queen with the whole party in vocal unison, it was magical. The band amazingly made everyone sound great and the lead vocalist was so patient on each song guiding those unsure along. Our staff can’t wait to do it again. We will definitely come back to you for our Christmas Entertainment in 2009

Best Regards

Dear Cath,

Following last Saturday’s Ball at the Palace Hotel Torquay I just wanted to let you know that we were delighted with the Band and Dancers’s performance on the night. The professionalism of both the Band and the Dancers was above expectations and we especially loved the way first, Leo organised the performances throughout the evening and secondly, the way Vanessa got most of the Guests on the floor to Samba with her and the other Dancers.

All in all, we would be happy to recommend you, for the way you organised everything from day one and the Band and Dancers for their friendly attitude, superb performance and total willingness to adapt exactly to our needs on the night. Once again thank you and do keep in touch

Best Regards,
