CLARE:

Dear Harley and Dutch

On behalf of Tarporley War Memorial Hospital, I would like to  thank you so much for supporting the function that Tim arranged for us at Abbey Wood.

Your band was fabulous, everyone enjoyed it so much, such a varied song list, we hope to use you again.

Because of your contribution, we will be able to continue to support people living in Tarporley and its surrounding villages with a modern, accessible and caring health care service.

We have a wealth of history that we are very proud of and 100 years of experience since we first opened our doors as a memorial to those who died in the First World War.

Today the 16 bedded inpatient unit specializes in the rehabilitation of the elderly, intermediate care and

supporting terminally ill and palliative patients. We also have a day centre, provide respite care and have a wealth of out-patient activity.

To continue our work, this year we need to raise at least 70% of our income. This is only possible because of thoughtful contributions

from people like you.     

Again, we thank you for your support and helping us succeed in our mission.

Kindest regards to you all.

TIM:

Kevin I have to thank you, Stephanie, Tony and the whole team for Friday. You were fantastic and that’s not just my opinion, I’ve seen most of the guys from Willington and they are all talking about how good you all were. 

The hospital were really touched and pleased: I believe Claire is going to contact you personally to say thanks too. 

We need to get the date in February sorted I’ll try to work out when half-term and valentines isn’t and check you guys are free. 

You’re not just great musicians but lovely people. If we can help with any reviews or anything just ask. Thanks again! Tim

Hi guys, I was at the Kingfisher pub in Northwich last night - ( Sat 25th Aug 2018) - and have to say i was impressed that a pub band could play the variety of music that you guys produced. In particular, the Queen medley with all the harmonies and tunes from the Rock n Roll era right through to  modern day  and Gloria Gaynor 's I will Survive ... wow what a voice your singer has.... superb. We were having a friends and family meal but we could still talk easily without being drowned out by the music and yes we did notice your sound engineer being very discreet at the back of the pub controlling the volumes. You dont very often see people up dancing in a pub but the floor was rocking all night. My friends and i will definitely come and see you again. Brilliant evening.

Casual yet professional.

Good appearance, good set list, good sound, good people.

I think that the band managed to “dress down” to be in keeping with the event’s theme however it was done in a consistent and professional way. When the Band started it was clear that the members were all well versed veterans and with each member taking control of their own instruments and sounds while still working very well together to harmonise a great sound. No person stood out as a show stealer which is rare in cover bands.

During the gig itself it was clear to see that the Lead vocalist was very talented and had a great range which allows the Band to cover a solid catalogue to suit most event’s and tastes. Her crowd control also was very good and she seemed comfortable to interact with everyone.

At the interval and after the gig the Band were more than happy to talk to us all and discuss their music, and social lives come to that, which was a very nice touch. Too many Bands stick together at events and come across are unapproachable – definitely not the case.

In all it was like having a group of friends with us at the event, friends who have a good Band. They blended into the event while still standing out as band members.

Paul D:

I was getting stick from all angles, and so was Bryan’s mum J

The singer was cheeky!

They were really good though, she had a great voice and the song choices were good. I also thought they adapted well given the numbers in the room!

Bill J:

Hey! I was at the show you did at the Rugby club Aug 26th. I was the very shy lad you guys played the Queen mega-mix for. I just want to say Thank you all for such a great night. I sadly had to leave due to work the next day. I really hope to see you guys again. Again thank you so much for a great night. It was awesome!!!

Jonathan M:

Seen them play a couple of times at the AACI shows. Really good band that play good popular covers. 
Would recommend them if you want a variety of music.

Lisa S:

Brill music, fab tunes, really varied set list!

Jennifer M:

An amazing band music and vocals are exceptional and such a huge variety easy to dance the night away can't rate these guys highly enough.

.....................................................................................................

Peter K:

Wow ... what a show. I wasn't expecting such professionalism from a band of part time musicians. Everything from the sound and light set up, to the music that pleased all ages was absolutely superb. The way they interacted with the crowd and kept everybody on the floor all night was great. I would thoroughly recommend these guys for any event.
