A massive thank you to you, Steve, and all the Band for the usual excellent gig on Saturday - thoroughly enjoyed your set, as always. I'm a great believer in a live band for an event like that and quite frankly I wouldn't consider hiring any other band
Just thought we would drop you a massive thank you for Saturday. We all enjoyed the night and I think a Ladies night without you guys is like the evening without laughter. You are consummate professionals, and Stephen you made Tracy's ordeal of a speech far better. Thought you should know we raised £3,400 between the raffle, auction and tickets, and dare I say it you massively contributed to the brilliant atmosphere of the evening, (no getting big headed now lol). I think you are brilliant, and singling Stephen out wouldn't be fair, but no one has ever accused me of being fair!!!!!!! Stephen, your guidance and professionalism as the MC trying to control the President was a thing of beauty, Tracy and I will be forever grateful.
I would like to put on record that your Toastmaster, Steve, did a brilliant job, as always, and I have such comfort when I know he's around, as it's a lot less to worry about on a formal evening like Ladies Nights where so many things are done "in order".
I was just thinking about you all!! Thank you very much for your contribution to our special evening, it has been truly memorable weekend and we had a wonderful time. Also thank you for playing Sweet Caroline twice!! The whole experience was lovely. Now for the holiday!!
As we are now getting back to normality we have wonderful memories of our wedding day and the spectacular performance of the band being part of that. We have had endless comments on what a great evening we all had which was created by Band on the Run. We look forward to attending another function where the band are the entertainment.

Just a short line to thank you for a most excellent evenings entertainment.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was a pleasure to see the dance floor permanently full all due to your expertise.
We raised a fantastic amount of money for our charities all due to the great atmosphere you generated from beginning to end.
I will certainly be recommending Band on the Run to other Lodges and I look forward to using your services again in the future.
Best regard and thanks to all of the band members.

Hi Ian, Steve and all, just thought I would drop you a line to thank you all again for helping to make our Ladies Festival in Chingford a great success. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and from the messages we have had since, so did everyone else.
Thanks again, we will not hesitate to recommend you in the future and maybe we will see you in action again soon.
Graham and Alex R
Hello, just wanted to send a quick message to say thank you to the band for the performance at my wedding on Saturday. I enjoyed it so much and i know that friends and family were just as impressed!
im trying to think of what i can celebrate next to get you guys back!!!
thanks again, you made the day complete!!
I would like to formally thank you and your colleagues for the wonderful performance at our recent Ladies Night. My wife and I received numerous words of praise from our guests on the bands performance and how much they enjoyed the warmth and enthusiasm which you all emitted.
I am sure we will remember the evening for many years to come and I will certainly not forget the sight of so many guests dancing for so long.
I just wanted to thank you to you and the rest of the band for a wonderful night of music during the Ladies Festival on Saturday.
You were all terrific, everyone had such a great time and I've had so many positive comments from those who attended.
Just a quick note to thank you all for an excellent evening's entertainment.
The feedback from EVERYONE was so positive. You totally respected all the things I had mentioned i.e not playing so loudly that no-one could talk and enjoy sharing each other's company. The mix and style of songs was great too, just as requested.
I hope you may get other bookings as a spin-off from this event, and look forward to hearing you play again in the not-too-distant future.
Many, many thanks for making our Ladies Night such a success. From the first note until Old Langs Syne the dance floor was full of folk having a ball!
We had a great night and a great band and we shall have no hesitation in recommending you to all our fellow Masons.
Hope to meet you all again in the not to distant future

Simon and I have just returned from our honeymoon and wanted to thank you
and the rest of the band for the brilliant entertainment you provided at
our wedding at Staple Inn Hall on the 9th September. It was so nice to
see so many people up dancing and really enjoying themselves all evening.
Band on The Run certainly made it a wedding to remember and so many people
have also commented on what a great performance you put on and how good the
Thanks you so much for the superb performance for our wedding evening at Crondon Park. Everyone enjoyed the evening and a huge part of that was down to you. Between ourselves and my Mum we've probably run out of big occasions for a while but if something else comes along, you will be the first to know! Thanks again.
I am sorry it has taken me so long to thank you but I am sure it is not too late. The whole evening was very successful and many people told me how good you were. We certainly enjoyed the variety of music and some people danced the night away. We had such a wonderful day with many happy memories. Thank you to you and to your fellow musicians for making this day such a memorable one in everyone's eyes. I know friends will be contacting you for future events and once again thank you so much.
First Class Band!
We just wanted to thank you and the rest of the band on behalf of the Lodge for a great evening on Saturday. We have received many comments and compliments on how good you all were and for the fact that you got everyone up on the dance floor for the whole evening.
Wow – Brilliant Band, Excellent communication. You play a great selection of music. Thank you
Excellent Band – great music tailored to age of guests – Great feedback from our guests saying the band were excellent. A truly wonderful event – thanks to the music which had people dancing all night long.
I just wanted to say thank you to the Band for the Ladies night last weekend, as always you were fantastic and always manage to get us up dancing.
I am writing to thank you and the rest of the band for ensuring that our event was a huge success.
I have received countless phone calls from guests who have thought as we did that your extensive repertoire and professional way in which it was delivered, was faultless.
As you may be aware, the lifestyle of many of our guests dictates that they attend high profile events like the Brentwood Banquet on a regular basis. The fact that they remarked on how much they enjoyed your music therefore is a great accolade to Band on the Run.
I must also pass on the great appreciation from the Rhys Daniels Trust for whom the event was organised.
Thank you once again.
I am writing to thank you and all the other members of the Band for playing such an important part in the success of our Christmas Social.
Everybody from the Golf Club who I have spoken to during the last few days has without exception, made very favourable comments about how well you al performed. I think that he proof of your success was the that the vast majority of people stayed on to the very end of the evening.
I am sure it will not be long before I am asked to re-book you for one of the functions in the not too distant future.
Many thanks again, wishing you all A Very Happy Christmas and a Successful New Year.
Thank you so much for a really fantastic wedding reception. As always you were brilliant. The whole night was just amazing for both of us and we can't thank you enough for making it a night to remember. Everyone is still talking about it and as for us? We'd like to do it all again next month! Thanks millions!
Lynette & Nick
Just a short note to say thank you so much for making my birthday party such a wonderful evening.
I am still receiving cards to say how much people enjoyed your music.
We will see you at my daughters wedding next May!
Thank you so much for helping our Wedding Reception go with a Swing. Everyone said how great you were - even my Mum! I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to speak to you, but we were too busy dancing. As soon as we can find a good enough excuse we shall book you again so I can dance for the whole evening. Many Thanks.
Linda and Dave K
This is just a brief letter to say a personal thank you for the wonderful contribution Band on the Run made to our Summer Ball. The whole band was truly professional in every sense of the word, displaying not only high levels of talent but genuine empathy and sensitivity towards our service users.
Your performance was a major highlight among many of our members and all of the "Stars in the Sky" team appreciate the part you played into making the event an occasion that will live in the memory of those that attended for a very long time.
I would like to express my grateful thanks for all the excellent music provided by Band on the Run. They made a good evening truly great. The music was perfectly pitched to appeal to the audience. Master of Ceremonies Steve was great fun and I was pleased with the table quiz which went down a storm. I would not hesitate to call on you again or recommend your superb band to others.
Thank you so much for making our Ladies festival a night to remember. In my 10 years of attending Ladies Nights I have never seen a dance floor packed all night. You really did make the night very special and from the feedback I have had, everyone thought that the mix of songs was absolutely brilliant. We hope you get many more bookings from the various lodges that were present on the evening because you certainly deserve to and we really do look forward to hearing you again.
John & Tracy D
I just thought I would write you a letter to say thanks for the great performance Band on the run put on for our Ladies Night in February. many guests commented on your performance and many will cherish the night for years to come.
We will be holding our next Ladies Festival in September this year and I will certainly be contacting you to come along again.
Thank you all so much for playing at our recent Wedding. You were absolutely brilliant and we had a wonderful time. The dance floor was always full which is just what we wanted, and everybody has made comments about how great you were. We would not hesitate in recommending you to our friends. Thank you again for your part in our perfect Wedding day.
Amy & Steve B
We wanted to write and thank you for the amazing job you performed at our Wedding. We had a fantastic night and much of it was down to the brilliant show put on by the band. From setting up with no fuss at all, incorporating Martin's impromtu Kareoke and even dealing with the confusion over the ending time, you were totally professional and a joy to work with. We've had rave reviews from many of the guests, and the way you kept people on the dancefloor to the very end contributed to a magic evening!! Thanks again so much!
Mike & Claire
Just a quick note to say "Thank You". We were so pleased we chose to have a band and not a DJ and the music, singing and atmosphere you created was fantastic. All our guests commented on how good you were. Thanks again.
Lynette & John P
Thank you so much for your fantastic performance at our Wedding Reception. We had people complimenting you for weeks after the day.
Cheryl & Gary H
Just a quick note to say thank you for the wonderful entertainment Band on the Run provided at our wedding. All of our guests commented on the great music and we left on a real high after your farewell circle - it's good to know you made sure we said goodbye to everyone! We will recommend you to any brides and grooms we hear of. Thanks again.
Lucy and David O

Both myself and my new husband would like to say a huge "Thank You" for the performance given by Band on the Run at our wedding reception. We know what a big hit you were with everybody and many people said what an enjoyable evening they had. We chose well! Thank you so much.

On behalf of my family, I would like to say a big big thank you for the Band's excellent performance at the evening reception of my daughters wedding. The photos and video prove what a great evening you gave all the guests. Enjoying your music and singing.
Mrs C Clark
Just to say a big thank you to you and all the band for the fantastic music provided at J...'s Christening earlier this month. You really got everyone up and dancing, including us. The sound was really clear and it was all very professional.
Lots of people have said what a great band we had and we just wanted you to know that you were all appreciated. Thank you for being so co-operative and making the evening a success. Lots of luck for the future. Until the next party we wish you well. Very best wishes and thanks.
Andrew and Ann A
Just a brief note to express my thanks to the band for performing so professionally at our ladies Night last Saturday. As you know, we had a fantastic evening, and received lots of feedback on how successful the evening was. Your band managed to really set the mood, and played exactly the right thing at the right time, helping to create an excellent atmosphere. We witnessed lots of people dancing who do not usually do so!! Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band for a brilliant evening's work.
Just a note to say a big thank you for the brilliant music you provided at my daughter and son-in-law's wedding. From the vey first beat the floor was never empty, it was irresistible foot tapping stuff that reached across all ages. After the wedding numerous thank you notes mentioned the "great band". You worked very hard on a hot night in a marquee and I do hope you got job satisfaction knowing you sent everyone home on a "happy high". I would always be happy to re-assure any future customers that you are a fab lot.
This is a little note to say "Thanks a Million" for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding. Everyone remarked afterwards and said the band were great. I will surely recommend you if ever I hear anyone needing a band for any future function. Thanks again.
Rita & Gary H
I would like to say a big thank you for the fantastic performance last Saturday at our Ladies night. Everything went well and everybody said how much they enjoyed the evening. All I have spoken to have remarked on how well the band played and how well the choice of music and the the volume was just right. The evening was a successful one as well as we raised around £850 for the Macmillan Nurses. Thanks once again and I hope to see you at many such gatherings in the future.
On behalf of Maldon Chamber of Trade and Commerce, I would like to thank you for your participation in the town's Victorian Evenings. The band certainly appeared to attract a good audience and proved to be very popular with all ages. May I take this opportunity of wishing you a Happy New Year.
D PMaldon Chamber of Trade and Commerce
This comes to thank you for the way you enhanced the evening for all of us who attended the RDA Summer Ball at Pontlands. Your playing was much appreciated and I have never seen people dancing so soon and so happily for many a year. As you know, I have been asked to book you again for next year. You will be glad to know that we raised about £3250 on the night of the ball and with the other fund raising events our RDA group has held this past year we are on target for the year. With every good wish and hoping you may be able to come and play for us next year. Thank you.
Just a short line to say thank you for a most excellent evenings entertainment. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was a pleasure to see the dance floor permanently full all due to your expertise. We raised a fantastic amount of money for our charities all due to the great atmosphere you generated from beginning to end. I will certainly be recommending Band on the Run to other Lodges and I look forward to using your services again in the future. Best regards and thanks to all of the band members.

What a lovely evening, with super music, something for everyone, as shown by dancers all evening. Hope to attend further functions with your band. Will certainly put you on the "recommended " list. Thanks again. P.S. Sadly my Ladies night has passed, we had a super band too, but really think you were better!
Bill and Mary H
A very big thank you to Band on the Run for helping to make yet another of our family parties go with a swing. You really are brilliant, never any trouble getting people on the dance floor with you around. Thank you also for setting up early in the day to help with our table arrangements ad for playing CD's during the meal.
