I just wanted to swing you a quick mail to say thank you so much for the sterling job you and your crew did over the weekend! Everyone from the technicians to the band and DJ were incredibly prompt, professional, friendly and accommodating. We could not have asked for anything more! The band were extremely tight and played their sets with total class and DJ Cosher had everyone jamming until the last song. It was also great of you to pop in and wish us on the day! It has been a pleasure from start to finish to deal with you company and we will be sure to recommend you to anyone in need of your service.

Thank you for making our day extremely special. All our guests loved the jazz duo (the best saxophone player in Rondebosch;) ) at the church and you guys also played so amazingly at the reception. DJ AJ then took over and we rocked the dance floor which was just so much fun! I will definitely recommend you further and once again a HUGE THANK YOU!!
