Mike & Leanne Riding - Jazz Guitar and Sax Duo Feedback

"Just a note to say many thanks for the music at the wedding reception at Glen Eagle Hotel on Saturday for our daughter Laura and her new husband George. We have had many positive comments about the live music and would just like to thank you and the other members of the group for your pleasant and professional approach. Everyone had a wonderful time and the music was just perfect. My brother in law had heard your singer before some time ago at another wedding reception and said she was very good then! Family from Canada particularly enjoyed the jazz swing. Again many thanks. We shall happily recommend you to family and friends." Susan Bardell

"Just a note to say thanks for the music at our wedding on the 21st. Despite the appalling weather - the music really helped to provide a relaxed atmosphere. I don't know much about jazz - but you played exactly what I had hoped for! Thank you once again" Laura and Barry Sopwell

"This is just a wee note to send our sincere thanks for being part of our wedding evening and helping towards the success I think it turned out to be. We had much feedback from our family and friends about the music, so thanks very much. I definitely know where to come for any future parties we may hold or recommend to our friends and family." Jules and Chris
