Hello Six Bells
Sorry its been a while - it wasnt an extended hangover, honest - but I just wanted to say a belated and huge thank you to the band at my bash on 1 May. You guys did a great job, and even converted some of the English into the delights of Scottish dancing!
Many thanks and best wishes to all of the band.

October Ceilidh

Dear Six Bells- were sorry it has taken us so long to get back to you, but we wanted to email you to thank the band for playing at our wedding on 17 October.  It was a fantastic ceilidh - all of our guests said how much they enjoyed themselves.  Both the music and the calling were excellent, which was particularly important as a lot of our guests had never been to a ceilidh before.  Please pass on our thanks to all the band members.

Best wishes

Dear 6 Bells,

Happy New Year to you all.

Hi 6 Bells,
Thank you for all your hard work at our wedding. Everyone was really impressed, both with the quality of the music and how clear the caller was - so thank you very much. I certainly enjoyed myself, and many guests commented on what fun it was. Please pass my thanks on to all the band.

Hi 6 Bells

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of the band for your great performance on Saturday night.  Everyone had a great time-including me and were very complimentary about all of you.  Good to hear too that the veggie haggis went down so well!

Dear 6 Bells,
Just a quick note to say a big thank you to you and the band for providing a wonderful Ceilidh at our wedding on August 4th. 
We both had a fantastic time and have received many letters from people saying how much they enjoyed all the dances and how Sarah managed to get everyone involved, for she was a great caller and patient teacher with many of us.
Thank you again and we will certainly be recommending you to friends and family.
Kind Regards,
Catherine and Edmund Vaughan

Just a note to say thank you for the excellent evening you provided for our civil partnership.The band was everything we hoped it would be. In the photos everyone has great big smiles, reflecting what a fantastic time was had by all. The disco rounded of the evening perfectly.We would have sent this thanks in a card  but unfortunately we have misplaced your address. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band.

Dear Mike, Sarah and the 6 Bells
We would like to thank you so much for the wonderful evening you provided for us on our wedding day. The music was fantastic, you have an amazing sound and Sarah worked so hard that night, she must have been exhausted and hoarse the next day. We had a fabulous evening and our guests relayed back to us what a great time they had dancing and listening to the music. We all had sore throats next day from laughing so much. It was such great fun, so thank you
We had a lovely wedding day and having such a great evening just added to the special moments of the day.
So thank you all once again and we wish you continuing success with the band
All the best

Dear Mike   -     Very many thanks again for all your help on Saturday.  It
was a fabulous occasion, and everyone seems to have had a wonderful time.  The
ceilidh was really the icing on the cake: plenty of guests - including some
quite experienced Scottish dancers - have told me how much they enjoyed
it.  It was good to have the disco to wind down at the end too.  I shall definitely
recommend you to any friends in need of a band!
Please do feel free to use any of the above comments for publicity, and
thanks again,
                                 All best     -    L.

Wedding in Redhill

Yes thank you Mike - everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly and lots of people gave us great feedback about the band.  I also noticed that lots of people that didn't join in the ceilidh did get up and have a dance during the disco so I was pleased that there was something for everyone.

Many thanks

Wedding in Sevenoaks

Hello Richard,
I hope you and your team are well.
I want to extend a huge and heartfelt thanks for the wonderful wonderful
effort you and your band put in at my wedding reception on august 19th. As
you know, weddings take a load of organising - and I really didnt know how
the evenings entertainment was gonna go - but myself and all the guests
had a fantastic time. You were all great, the music was fab, the dancing
just brilliant, and the atmosphere was magical. Thankyou so so much.
I am still replaying the whole day over and over again in my mind - and you
and your band helped to make it just perfect. I almost wish I could do it
all over again, and I wouldnt be so shy next time - but thats the way it
goes. I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you again for your kind words of
reassurance in the days leading up to our wedding, that was a great help.
Everyone loved your music - it makes a smashing change from the usual
'wedding disco' when men will only dance once they are pie eyed!!! I loved
watching some of my male mates (who would never ordinarily dance) really
enjoying throwing themselves around the dance floor.
Thankyou again so very very much.
All the best, I shall never forget it.

Wedding in Leatherhead

The wedding was fantastic and all people talk about is how much fun the ceilidh was!!! thank you so much for making it go so well. Jimmy was a brilliant caller and people who had never even heard of a ceilidh before were flying around by the end of the evening. The way we all ended up outside on the grass dancing was perfect and so much fun.
many many thanks

Amy and Nick
