Some of the letters of appreciation received within a few weeks of each other, typical of the reaction the band creates:
“Words will never be able to thank you enough for you and your group playing for us at our wedding. Everyone remarked how lovely it was but for us it was so special. I remember hearing you at your special day in Leigh and hoping that one day I could have a special occasion for you to play at. And what better event than our wedding. And it was better than I remembered – and that says a lot because at the time I though you were brilliant. Please send my thanks to all the band from us.” - Kate and Jason
“….This is to thank you for helping to make the Ball at Scarborough Castle such a success. It really seemed to go so well and the dance floor was permanently full….” - Felicity B.
“I must write and thank you – and all your Band – for giving us such a memorable evening’s music last Saturday. The whole day had gone like clockwork, with a particularly lovely Service. Then the meal was followed by your splendid jazz…all were full of praise for the Stompers.” - Christopher C.
The Stompers were so wonderful at the Country Fair last Sunday and so favourably commented on by all sorts of people – that I thought I must drop you a note to thank you and your great team for putting on such a spirited performance. You really helped make it a successful afternoon, in spite of the weather. Financially our best ever and, in addition to supporting the Church and village organisations, we’ve sent nearly £2,500 to the new Hospice in the Weald Appeal. We are most grateful for all you did to give us such a happy day.” - John C.
“Again, many thanks for your marvellous playing for Louise and Mark. You really made the evening - not a single grumble from anyone about not being able to talk to their neighbours and perfect music to dance to and everyone had a wonderful time.” - Jay G.
“You are a brilliant band. Your playing is excellent and you made our reception flow perfectly - I did not realise till seeing our video the effect you had - an amazing atmosphere was created. Thank you for working so hard and long to make it such a happy evening.” - Robert and Joey M.
“Well, what can I say – last Saturday was just fantastic – your music was wonderful – everybody was dancing…” - Jenny W.
