"Hi Gavin, I just wanted to say a quick thank you for performing at our wedding last Friday at the Isla Gladstone. You were phenomenal throughout and a true professional. Somehow you managed to get guests up onto the dance floor who would not normally be there which is inspiring. I genuinely lost count of the number of guests that came up to me to say how good you and the band were so I think you may have a few more fans now! Thanks also for bringing the sax player along also as he definitely added to the night. We saw you originally at the Spinningfields Festival and I'll certainly be looking out for more public dates. Thanks again, you made our night! Andy & Gemma."

"Hi Gavin, Just wanted to say a quick thank you!!! Everyone is buzzing about how good you were in the day and how fab you and the band were at night! I believe I succeeded in persuading my friend Emma to book you for her wedding in August 2022 too. We will be adding a good review to Facebook, but just wanted to say thanks for creating such a fab atmosphere! Natasha & Brett xx"
