"Many thanks for providing a great band, their music was superb. They were very accomodating with all our requests and provided a great variety of dances for all ages and abilities. The caller coped admirably with our 200 guests and I received many compliments on his ability to explain easily and quickly and with good humour. Here's to the next time."

"Dear Stephen Nash,

Just a few lines to say how pleased we all were with the Trio's performance last Saturday at our Diamond Wedding celebrations in Blewbury.

Your musicians were well briefed, obviously, and carried out their instuctions to the letter. All our guests had nothing but praise for their choice of tunes and rendering which fitted the occasion admirably.

Thank you for making all the arrangements. We would not hesitate in recommending you.


Ian Gardner."
