Aparna & Kurtis

Hi Les,

Just wanted to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding reception.

Although we were not able to attend your performance (we were on a heli-flight) so many of our family and guests commented on how fantastic the performance was from the band.

It was just what we wanted for our wedding reception and perfect for the venue.

Thanks again,

Aparna & Kurtis

Dear Mr. Richardson,
My wife and I heard you accompanying Vanessa at Waimate last week (Strawberry Fare) and we were so impressed. I thought I was watching Nelson Riddle. Vanessa has such a beautiful voice, so I’m sending your C.D. to Dame Cleo Laine’s Music School in Wavendon, Northampshire in U.K. May you all be very successful.


Just a small note to express our appreciation for the wonderful music provided the night of Lara & Aaron’s wedding. People have said that it was simply magic when the curtains opened and you began to play- like a scene in New York! Your music is QUALITY so – please pass on my thanks to the band and keep up the good work – it brings great pleasure to many!

Elisabeth Williamson – Co-ordinator
