"Hi Warren. Mike and I just wanted to say we absolutely LOVED your perfromance at our wedding. We are so happy and so relieved. We looked all over the internet and could not find ANYONE who sang this type of music the way you do. We were afraid we were going to end up with a cruise ship act or a Vegas lounge lizzard. We were just about to give up when the Wilshire staff told us about you. You are a class act, and we received nothing but compliments from our guests throughout the night. You are the first thing that comes up when we run into anyone who was at the wedding. You have something special here. Keep it up. "

I can't thank you enough for helping us with our wedding. You really kept things organized, and the band was terrific. Great job on the microphone. Everyone found you are very pleasant and entertaining. I heard a lot of good things about you from the hotel, but I had no idea. Sorry it took so long to write, but this wedding took a lot out of us. We're just getting back into the swing of things after the honeymoon. Anyway, thanks again. You made quite an impression. Gwen wants to have to have another party just to hire you again. Better yet, let us know the next time you are playing live somewhere. We are coming out for sure. Gwen's sister Julie says hi. Take care."
