‘Well what a fabulous night it was on Saturday and I really want to thank you so much for everything you and the band did to make it such a special night. Everyone loved the music and I think a few of us could have danced until morning. If you could thank everyone for me, especially Mr Barnett who did a great job too. I certainly would recommend you to anyone and if you ever need the musical equivalent of a reference then I would always be happy to give one.’

Louise Rogers, Marchamley.

Jean King, Market Drayton Age Concern ‘Drop In.’

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all the band for Saturday night. We had an absolute ball!!!Lots of people have said how much they enjoyed the dancing. Even our next generation (all those teenagers/early twenties children/nephews/nieces) who were adamant they wouldn’t dance were up and having a fantastic time (I knew they would). If I could I would do it all again tomorrow.’

Catherine Carney.

‘A massive thanks! We loved having the Tern Valley Tinkers as our wedding band – they were so much fun! Everyone was up dancing and laughing all night. The great thing about them was that they got everyone up dancing with each other and everyone joining in – we had lots of children at our wedding but it was great for all ages. The kids loved it just as much as the adults! All our guests had a blast learning the moves and making friends. Not only was the music and dancing fantastic, but also the band were so warm and friendly – it really was great to have them as part of our day. Thank you so much!
