However, we'd heard you before and knew what to expect. Notwithstanding, your wedding swing band over-delivered on our expectations and we had an absolutley fantastic evening of music and dance thanks to you and your colleagues. We were genuinely delighted with you delivery and the way you made the party swing. Again, thank you, and we look forward to seeing you again at your public performances."
