“Dear Paul, Thank you very much for playing so beautifully at our wedding ceremony. We really enjoyed listening to the music and felt that it gave us the atmosphere we wanted. Many people told us how much they enjoyed it too.”

“I should like to thank you for a wonderful evening last Friday 13th July. So many of our guests have written back thanking us and commenting on your energy, musical talent and the magical atmosphere you created for our party. Thank you!”

“I am writing to thank you very much indeed for organizing a superb band for the celebration of my company’s 60th Birthday at Wentworth Golf Club on Thursday 1 March 2012. The standard of music was fantastic and was commented on by many of my guests. We had a super evening with the ambience of the ballroom, excellent food and wine, superb service and certainly excellent music.
Thank you so much for all you have done to make our evening such a success.”

“We had a fantastic evening on my parents anniversary and you made a significant contribution. Thanks for playing on late and putting on such a great performance. You certainly hit the right note with all our guests! Thank you very much.”

“Thank you so much for all your lovely music which gave the party such a happy atmosphere. Your playing really helped the party to get underway as the guests arrived. The whole occasion went with a swing. As you could see, the ‘little ones’ wanted to dance. It was really ‘toe tapping’ music and I would love to have spent more time joining in. Thank you for all your thoughtfulness and care helping to make it such a memorable Birthday celebration for us.”

“Christopher and I would like to sincerely thank you for ‘being with us’ on our wedding day and for making it so memorable, so enjoyable and so perfect. We are sorry not to have had time to talk to you, but you were brilliant and made ‘our day’ complete. We would have no hesitation at all recommending you, thank you so much. You were (are) the right person for ‘our day’.”

“Thank you so much for playing at Sarah’s and Hamish’s wedding reception. The bride and groom and all of us enjoyed it so much. We have received many compliments from guests on both the saxophone and the piano playing; it certainly enhanced the day”.

“Dear Paul, Many thanks for your contribution to our wedding day. Everything went superbly and we had a wonderful day and evening. One of our guests said it was like a particularly friendly house party. The music was the area where I wasn’t very sure how it would work out as there were only 50 of us, but I needn’t have worried. It was a good decision to uncover the dance floor and people enjoyed both listening and dancing to your music. It was lovely to have something live. Thank you for your professionalism and for just getting on with it. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others.”

“Dear Paul, My wife and I wish to place on record our deep appreciation of the delightful music you provided for us at our Golden Wedding Anniversary which contributed so much to what we have labelled ‘our perfect celebration’. The quality and selection of music precisely captured the mood of the occasion, a sentiment that has been expressed by all of our guests. Life only gives one chance of a Golden Wedding Anniversary and we thank you so much for the musical part you played in making it such a very special evening for us.”

“Thank you for the music at our wedding. It created the perfect atmosphere, everyone made comments on how good you were.”

“Sorry it’s taken so long to write and thank you for playing at our wedding at short notice. We enjoyed your choice of music very much and are still getting comments from our guests. Everybody was amazed at how you managed to play for so long without any music and what a lovely accompaniment you were to the day.”

“Many thanks for all your hard work in organising the P. R. Jazz Quartet and Fabulous All Stars to appear at our fund raising Jazz Cafe at Sandown Park Racecourse. The Quartet played an important part in welcoming our guests at the start of the evening and we heard complimentary remarks from so many people about the choice of music and high quality performance. The performance by the Fabulous All Stars was brilliant and really helped to lift the party mood. The choice of music was just right for this audience and more people danced than at previous functions. Thank you again, and all your fantastic musicians, for putting on such a professional and high class performance for us.”

“Ric and I would like to say a huge thank you to you and your company for supplying the music for our wedding. Paul Smith was amazing and such a good pianist. His music really helped to create just the right atmosphere for the ceremony. I would highly recommend him for any future events.”

“Many many thanks for the wonderful atmosphere you created with your beautiful playing on the piano. Everyone enjoyed listening and on many tables there were discussions about the tunes and some singing along.”

“I am just writing to say thank-you for recommending Paul Smith to play at our drinks reception/conference dinner. We had a large age scale to please with very differing musical taste and Paul rose to this occasion and was excellent, his manner and appearance just suited the occasion and he was very flexible regarding positioning of his equipment and sound level.”

“Barbara and I would just like to say a big thank you for making Barbara’s Birthday occasion so special. Your choice of music for the luncheon at Badgemore Park Golf Club was superb. Many of our friends were very complimentary about having such delightful background music played at the right level. We would have no hesitation in recommending you and hope we may have the pleasure of using your services again in the future. Your delightful approach, manner and musical skills made it a pleasure having you there to share our day.”

“Many many thanks for what you have done to help make Claire & Tom’s day so special. I am obviously writing this in advance of ‘the day’ - but my faith in your skills is such that I know we will all have thoroughly enjoyed listening to you.”

“Paul was excellent on Saturday. He arrived on time, dressed perfectly and played beautifully. Thank you very much for recommending Paul. He worked so hard. I hope he had a chance of enjoying the evening.”

“This letter serves to recommend Paul Smith to play the piano at any engagement he might be requested for. Paul played brilliantly at our daughter’s wedding reception at the Bush Hotel recently.”

“Firstly thank you for playing for us at Audleys Wood. Secondly, one family of guests wrote to tell us what they enjoyed of the day, and cited your music as one of the things that they most enjoyed.”

“Karen and I would like to pass on our thanks to Paul Smith, the pianist you recently provided to perform at our wedding at Tylney Hall. His repertoire was perfect for the occasion and very much met with our choice of music, which we had spoken directly with him about and also involved extra work on his behalf to find some pieces he had not played before.”

“Thank you so much for playing the piano at Christina & Bryn's wedding last Saturday at Elvetham Hall. It made the drinks reception special.”

“Thank you for playing so beautifully at our daughter, Elles’ wedding at the Penny Hill Park.”

“Many thanks for your fantastic contribution to making our wedding day a special occasion. Your choice of music played during the ceremony and meal was exactly what we were looking for and played extremely professionally.”

“Thank you so much for providing such wonderful music for our wedding at Audleys Wood. Many guests have commented how good the music was, so thank you. Also well done with ‘The Entertainer’.”

“Although Caroline & Christopher’s wedding was a month ago, it is probably not too late to say what a marvellous musical contribution you made to the reception at Audleys Wood. We have received so many letters of thanks for what was universally considered to be a first class occasion, and it was clear that everybody who attended the reception was very impressed with your playing. In particular, I was amazed that, from the scrappy collection of lines and dots that I sent you just a few days before the wedding, you were able to produce a very recognisable and pleasing rendition of the ‘Pride and Prejudice’ theme- something which really made Caroline’s ears prick up with delight. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others who may have such a requirement for their events. Once again, many thanks for your help.”

“A number of people commented about the quality of your playing but it was much more than that; somehow you managed to create just the right sort of atmosphere which enabled everybody from all sides of the family and our friends to relax together to embark on the celebrations. Jean and I are very appreciative and I know that Adam and Fiona were very grateful for the part you played in making their special day “very special” indeed.”
