    Pros:

    Jo, I wanted to thank you, Jon and Denys for helping make my wife's 40th birthday party so fantastic. The music selection and quality was outstanding, and we loved the way you just played the room and brought the party to life. Our friends had a ball, and they all said that you were the best band they had heard in years.

    Right from my initial enquiry through to the big night, I found you to be highly professional, and you and the band exceeded my expectations on every count.

    Cons:

    None

    Overall:

    I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who wants to take their event to a new level or bring their next party to life.

    Regards

    Pros:

    Dear Jo,

    I would like to take the opportunity to thank both you and John for the wonderful entertainment you recently provided for Murray's 40th birthday party. Right from the beginning back in April when we began the arrangements, up until the day of the party, there were never any problems and I have to say it was a dream and a pleasure to deal with such a professional person.

    From the outset of the night when the guests arrived, right to the end of the party, yourself and John continued to wow us with your fantastic voices, music and enthusiasm to make sure everyone was entertained. We have had so much feedback from people who attended on how great the music and subsequent dancing was, that I know the night would never have been as great a success without you both.

    Thank you again for making Murray's night such a memorable one and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone, be it company or individual who is in need of outstanding, professional and well organised musicians.

    Cons:

    None

    Overall:

    Keep up the great work and hopefully we can have you play at functions we may have in the future.

    Kind Regards,

    Julie Mason

    Pros:

    Dear Jo

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you & your band for such a great night of non-stop entertainment. The evening kicked off to a great start with my sister in law having no idea of her 40th birthday surprise as she came walking through the doors & seeing all of her friends & family along with 4te playing 'celebrate good times'. It was a party that had friends, family & relatives (that are usually too shy to dance) on their feet & having a blast!

    My only regret of the night was having to pay for the additional DJ that I hired to play in between your sets. He simply had to pack up & leave because you guys didnít stop playing. Anyway it ended up being a great decision since we got to party all night long with you guys.

    Cons:

    None

    Overall:

    Once again I thank you & 4te for a wonderful evening & Iíll be sure to keep in contact for any up coming events.

    Kind regards,

    Pros:

    Jo & Jon,

    Shannon & I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping to create the perfect atmosphere at our wedding recently. We could not have asked for better entertainment...your music selection was fantastic!

    Our friends & family danced the night away, and could have kept going for many more hours!

    You were both very professional to deal with and nothing was a problem. We also appreciate the distance you had to travel.

    Cons:

    None

    Overall:

    Thanks once again ñ we will have no hesitation in recommending you both!

    Cheers,
