Dear Denise, James and all the members in the band

Thanks you so much for performing at our Anniversary Party. The whole crowd was rocking to the music, you really got everyone going, it was fantastic. I know this is your job, but you all do it so so well.

Denise, I really have to say the biggest thank you to you. When Kevina and myself met you that day, you opened up a whole world for us. You gave me all the contacts numbers for most of the acts that performed on the day and they went down a treat with residents, their families and all the people that came to the event. You also gave me so much support and advise, I really don’t know how many times I contacted you over the period of time we were organizing and you were always there to help. We got such fantastic feedback from a lot of people about the band, Bee, Sean and the children, but we would not have these only for you. You helped to make our day such a great success.

If we do plan another event we would be so grateful to have Illusion and the Stage performers, I will recommend you to anyone looking for a great band.

Thank you so much again

Illusion Band played for our Fund Raiser Dinner Dance on Friday 12th April, 2013. They were amazing, they had everyone up dancing from the moment they started playing. It just flowed.  They made a great sound and leading vocalist Denise really knew how to work the crowd. Then they did DJ for us for the final hour and had absolutely everyone on the floor. Everyone said that they couldn’t remember when they had such a wonderful night. Everyone took to the floor and danced the night away, it was an absolute blast! Thanks so much Denise and to all in Illusion Band for a wonderful night and making the night such a success! I would highly recommend The Illusion Band! Thanks Fran.:-)

To Denise and All the Illusion Band

On behalf of myself and my husband Graham we would like to thank Denise and the
gang from the Illusion Band on their absolutely brilliant performance at our Wedding.
We also had Denise singing in the church for us on our special day and she sang
the songs beautifully especially our song as we were leaving the church which was
Signed Sealed Delivered I'm Your’s, this got everyone into the spirit of things early
on in the day. When the band came on later on they were very accomodating with
us as you know yourself the meal sometimes runs late, but they were brill. They
sang on to the early hours of the morning and from the minute they arrived to finish
had everyone up on the floor. Everybody thought you were brilliant and if anyone
wanted a song you would sing it, fair play. You made our night and left us with great
memories of our day. You were great to deal with in the run up to our wedding and
we couldn’t have chosen a better BAND. Thanks for a amazing day and night and
best of luck in the future.

Hi Denise,

We are just back a few days from our honeymoon, and I thought I would just drop
you a quick mail to express our thanks to you all for a great night of entertainment.
You really did a super set, thanks so much. I also wanted to say that I really enjoyed
singing with you guys so much. If you ever want a break or need a singer to cover
you for holidays etc I would be very interested in that!! I'll be sure to put up a
recommendation on weddings online too.

All the best

Hi Denise & Gang !

Just a quick line to let you know the night was a roaring success . I think you should
have guessed that by the dancing ! They’re a hard crowd to please usually but you
handled them perfectly. Your choices of music suited every age group and I hadn’t
got one complaint (Thank God) ! As a result they have asked me to organise the
event every year. I am so grateful and put this down to you guys. Keep your diary
open as I’ll be calling upon your services again.

Many Many thanks

I would highly recommend your band & dj. They did a fantastic job when they played at our
wedding recently; They had everyone up on the dance floor & kept them there! Thanks to all
of you for an enjoyable night of entertainment. Denise, you were a pleasure to deal with very
friendly & professional in every way. Looking forward to seeing you perform in the future.
