40s style band

You and your band were absolutely amazing. Many of our guests commented on the great performance you put on (all I really wanted to do was sit back and listen). Thank you also for taking things in your stride even though we over-ran horribly. You didn't have a break at all and played solidly. We are very very grateful and you guys really made day.
