Just a quick email on behalf of the audience at Balvenie castle to say what a fantastic evening’s entertainment that you guys put on last night. I recognised almost EVERY song and thoroughly enjoyed the banter and wit between you and your guys. Pass on our thanks to your superb group and all of the helpers that made the night one to remember, all helped by a couple of the best drams available on the planet.”

We had a really good night last night. The MIPI folks enjoyed themselves and there were many recounts from the night before at lunch today. We heard many positive comments about the banter and mash-ups form the band. The whole evening was a great hit. Thanks again for everything.”
