It was wonderful meeting with you on Monday for Julia’s wedding. Thank you for the special touch you added to the day. The guests really enjoyed it and it helped to keep spirits high notwithstanding the rain. Your performance definitely put the wedding on the right track and we left after 1:00am.

Many thanks

Dear Mike,

The dust hasn't yet settled after our fabulous day on Wednesday, but I wanted to thank you for setting the mood and playing so beautifully for us! Compliments have been pouring in, so expect a few more gigs. I hope you enjoyed being with us as much as we enjoyed meeting and listening to you!

Kindest regards,

Dear Mike

Speaking from my heart I would like to express my feelings about your music:

Your music and the joy and happiness that it instills in people often leaves me in awe of the wonder of music. I hope that you don't think this too sentimental but I have been a fan of yours ever since your song "Mashed Potato" entered my world. In short, I love the music that you play and the sound of your fellow musicians. I truly believe that you musicians are the salt of the earth. You all spread so much happiness and appreciation for the sound of jazz. I sometimes think that jazz was born behind the blue door. I wish that I was on every committee of every city of every country to recommend that your music be played, be it from dawn to dusk.

I have had a long and established career with an esteemed employer in the international entertainment industry and have had the pleasure of attending various functions featuring professional artists. With this background, I would have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending you to play at any occassion, be it performing for a grand opening of a family casino complex in Las Vegas to a local safari getaway.

With much appreciation for you, yours and your music.

Yours truly,
Sue Wiltshire

Hi Mike

Just wanted to send you an email to say thank-you so much to both you and Eddie for playing at our wedding!Your music created such a wonderful atmosphere on the day and was perfect for the wedding!

Many thanks

From Michelle van Staden

Dear Mike,

Thank you for an amazing atmosphere on Saturday night. I had the most magical birthday, and you and Eddie were a big part of that. You really do have a talent in sounding out the atmosphere of a party and mirroring this in tinkling keys and beautiful notes. One would think that music appreciated through one of the 5 senses – hearing. In your case however, it is felt in the heart. Thank you!

Hi Mike (and the band!)

Henri & I have just arrived in Tokyo after a fantastic holiday and wedding in SA.

A great part of the fond memories is definitely of your and the band's performance at our wedding! The vibe was exactly what we were looking for (thanks for not bringing the disco ball :-) and many guests said that the live performance was something really special. There were even some Fine Music Radio fans among the guests which made it extra special!

Thank you very much for the great music! The wedding would not have been the same without it!

Good luck for 2010 and may you and the band have a fantastic year.

Greetings from the Far East
Helena & Henri

Hi Mike

I'd like to thank you and your talented colleagues for helping to make our wedding day such a wonderful occasion. We needed something low-key to fit in with our informal approach and I was delighted to find that you understood exactly what we wanted and delivered it on the day. Musicians aren't always known for their reliability but at every stage (from first the email through to the actual performance) I felt certain that you would be there with the correct equipment playing great music! Well done.

Best regards
Chris and Suz Gartside

P.S. We missed our chance to visit that evening Jazz spot we spoke about, but next time we're in the Cape I may drop you a line!

Dear Mike

I know its was a while ago that you played at our 30th Wedding anniversary in the Ball room of the Mount Nelson Hotel, but I remember it as yesterday, wow, you really made the night a memorable one, yes it was on the 3rd January 2006. In fact I had no hesitation to recommend you for my Tourist group from the World Airlines Clubs association and all 300 really enjoyed your music at their 40th Annual General Assembly at the Lagoon Beach Hotel in Milnerton. Thanks so much and I will continue to recommend you and your group.
Kind regards
