WHAT OUT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
Hi Marcus, just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you. I have looked on your website to leave a comment but couldn’t see how to do it hence the email. Massive thank you for playing at our wedding last weekend. We knew you would be amazing but the feedback from our guests was more than we expected. Everybody thought that Frankly Jazz set just the right tone throughout the day & the evening. Pass on our thanks to the other guys and the loan of the lights was much appreciated. Many thanks again,
Gary & Ruth Proudfoot
