  • Dear Colin and Linda, we have just watched the DVD you made. OMG! How brilliant. We have enjoyed it so much and it brings it all back.

  • Dear Colin, I wanted to let you know that my email has been filled over the last 2 days with messages of thanks and congratulations from those who attended the Banquet. Your performance featured in so many of those messages as having been the perfect climax to an elegant evening. You were mentioned by 3 of our top table guests and many more of our own team as having been the perfect transitional link between a formal dinner and a great Livery family party. I cannot thank you enough for what you achieved because you created a really happy atmosphere and the music was super. It was polished sophisticated and FUN. It cannot get much better than that; many congratulations and sincere thanks. You and the team were delightful people to have met and I know it will not be the last time.
