Hi Pete Everyone loved your playing and couldn't believe your charges were so reasonable. You really made the evening and a number of us are a little bit in love with you! They wanted to know how I had found you so I told them I picked you up in the street - hope you don't mind it was just my joke, I explained I had heard you busking and asked if you did parties. Your playing was fantastic and thanks for playing some of the tunes I requested especially Lou Reid's Perfect Day and Acker Bilks Stranger on the Shore. Also especial thanks for being prepared to hang fire until the pig roast was ready. Warm Regards Jackie Tookey 19/08/11

Dear Pete I am writing to thank you for attending our recent fundraising Summer Ball at the Barcelo Hotel in Daventry. Your music played to the guests whilst they had their pre dinner drinks was a fantastic start to our evening and set the tone for an evening packed with entertainment and superb music. Many guests commented on how versatile you were and how much they enjoyed your music, some have asked me for your contact details for the future. We were thrilled with your contribution to the night and should the need arise for your services again, we will certainly get in touch with you. We raised £11,800 on the evening of the Ball, this is a great start to our building and refurbishment project at the Long Buckby Rugby Club premises. All funds raised are critical to the ongoing success of the club and every penny generated goes to improving the facilities of the club and the development of the players in the youth section. Many thanks for your support and encouragement, we hope you had a most enjoyable evening.
