"Thank you for your superb music. We were asked by all the guests to pass on to you that the music provided by you and Jonathan was the crowning effect of our celebration"
" I think you are one of the most talented musicians I have ever known. You can play any requested songs at the drop of a hat and what is more amazing, on any musical instrument."
Thanks Fabrice, the response from that evening has been extremely positive. Thank you for playing a part in the success of our client appreciation. Your music was much appreciated by all in attendance. All were very appreciative of the music that evening.
I just wanted to once again thank you and Jonathan for playing such beautiful music last night. Everyone commented on it and thought it was such a complement to the show.
We are just back from our honeymoon and wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed having you and the players at the wedding. The music was wonderful and our guests were very impressed. Thank you so much for helping to make the night such a success!
