"Hi Colette Thank you so much for the amazing music you provided us on our wedding day. So many guests commented on how your music created the perfect atmosphere. The tune - ceremony - that you learnt for us was just so wonderful and a few people stated it put the hairs up on the back of their neck when you played it. Thank you."
Tara Kenny (Ham Polo Club)
"Just to say on behalf of myself and my family, thank you for making a very hard day a little easier. Everyone who I spoke to after the service yesterday commented on what a difference you made. We really can't thank you enough. The Galway Shawl was fantastic. On behalf of my Father, a big thank-you. He really would have looked down and loved it. If I ever need an accordion again, I'll know where to come. (Think I might have started a trend) You may visit Rochester a few more times over the next few years. Many thanks again, Martin"
Martin (Rochester) - Funeral
"We booked the London Accordionist band for our 10th wedding anniversary, an informal party at our home. With an Irish family and friends who love Irish music, we were keen to have a blend of popular folk songs and more instrumental tunes to encourage dancing... The band were fantastic - superb musicians, friendly and engaging and open to music requests. The audience, from 7 months to 70, loved the set. We would highly recommend the band and look forward to booking them for our next party."
Emma and Paul - Anniversary
