Just a note to thank you for your wonderful performance at the 1st Benefit for SAFEchild held at MacGregor. We've had terrific responses to your band and would love to do it again with next year. (yes this may become an annual affair!) Thanks again for contributing to our successful dance for SAFEchild.
Thank you for making the wedding so special with your lovely music. It was magical and it was exactly the mood that I wanted at the reception. Please express my gratitude to the entire band. They were fantastic.
I apologize for not getting this note to you sooner. We are in the midst of packing for a trip to Canada in February. I would just like to thank you and let you know how much I enjoyed your band's performance at our wedding reception on January 24th. All of the music was just wonderful and I know that everyone enjoyed it thoroughly. Thank you so much for helping to make our day a beautiful memory.
The Cary Senior Center cannot thank you enough for the marvelous entertainment that the Moonlighters provided for this year's Valentine's Day Dance. Everyone in attendance including the single folks had such a grand time dancing to the sounds of the 30's, 40's, and 50's. It was an evening that I am sure that they will remember for a long time to come. Again thank you so much for your part in making this Valentine's Dance such a success and please pass along our warmest regards to the Moonlighters.
