Hi there
 
I just wanted to send a wee note to say thank you! The string quartet were
fab! Everyone commented on how great they were! I feel very bad that I never
really got a chance to thank them for playing at the wedding. They help make
our day perfect!
I would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to all at Big Al and
to show how happy were both were we have nominated Big Al for the VOWS
awards.
 
Thanks again 
Best wishes

Hello Al,

I trust this mail finds you well. A much belated thank you to you and your guys for the entertainment provided on the 12th April.

The piper was fantastic, and was a good source of tranquillity in the run up to the ceremony, and the really set the scene outside the Palace. He was always on hand when he was required and made sure he was never too far away. Please pass our sincere thanks to him.

Seattle were out of this world. They were a great act, played some fantastic tunes and really let their hair down, that was great. Unfortunately we didn’t get to spend any time listening to them, but reports from the dance floor were all good. They were very professional. I think one of our guests has made a booking for them for their own wedding.

Please pass our sincere thanks to them too – especially as a friend had organised for my band to get up and do a couple of tunes – please thank Seattle for allowing this to happen, if someone had asked us to let another, drunk, band get up and use our instruments we would have told them where to go. I had no idea this was on the cards and it was a nice surprise, but had I known I might not have drunk quite so much!!

Thanks all round then Al, to you for the organising the booking and to your acts for being so professional on the day.

Kind regards
Chris & Steph

Hi Al

I just wanted to say a big thank you for providing the entertainment for our wedding on 5th May. We would like to commend the DJ that you supplied as he played all of our tracks that we asked him to and all of our guests had a good word to say about him. We danced all night long!

Dear Al,

I was truly impressed by both Clan Wallace and our kilted magician. Clan Wallace are clearly very talented and managed to create an act that left our primarily English audiences speechless. They did not fail to impress. The costumes and music were superb and it really managed to give them a true Scottish welcome.

Huge huge thanks

Hi

I used your company for my Dad's 60th birthday party at the Inchyra Grange hotel on Saturday. I just wanted to tell you that the band was excellent (from Glenfarg) and having been to may ceilidhs, I have to say they are the best I've heard. The DJ afterwards was terrific too and if this reflects the quality of the other people you deal with at Big Al entertainment, there is no doubt that you will do very well because I will recommend you to friends and family in the future.

Well done and thanks
Allan Greenshields

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We used 1 of your DJs for the evening entertainment. He was great and all our guests commented on how good and varied the music was so thankyou to the colleague who was DJ that night, please pass on our thanks.

Hi

Many many thanks to Big Al Entertainments for managing our recent and hugely successful Bob The Builder promotion at the Kingsgate Shopping Centre, Dunfermline. Al Sutherland took on all details from the initial specification and via the Big Al Entertainment team provided a seamless and
extremely professional event. Ross and Alan at Big Al Entertainments attended in plenty of time to erect and test all staging and public address equipment, working with courtesy and efficiency.

In preparation for the arrival of Bob The Builder, Real Radio's Steve McKenna took to the stage to motivate the already gathering crowd ? maybe I should say, to whip them into a frenzy! Steve had obviously been well briefed but, above all, he came across as an inherent professional.

Bob The Builder, provided by Rainbow Design, under contract to Big Al Entertainments was also exceptional. The guys from Rainbow were extremely professional but also extremely accommodating in regard to client requests. In regard to this, Bob conducted song and dance routines with the kids, afforded personal photoshoots and carried out a number of walkabouts throughout the Kingsgate Centre.

All in all, a fabulous day and extremely beneficial to footfall and retail business at the Kingsgate Centre, Dunfermline. Its now not a case of if we do events like this again but when

Just a note to say a big thank you for all your help and support during the organisation of our events and on the evening itself. The arrangements went very well and both the rooms and the refreshments were wonderful. Please also pass on my thanks to Guner and the rest of the team.


Please would you also pass on our thanks to the musicians who played so creatively during the reception. We received much favourable feedback about their performance.

Hi, Please can you pass on our thanks to the string quartet who played at our wedding on the 27th august - Western House. The music was wonderful and made the day extra special. Thanks for all your help.

Hi, We just wanted to thank the DJ you sent to the Maitlandfield Hotel on Haddington on Saturday 23rd, We all had a great night and the music was perfect the floor was filled nearly all night, It really made the wedding for us.

kindest regards
Caroline and Bob McClung

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Big Al

Phillip and I would be grateful if you would pass on our thanks and gratitude to the musicians who made up the quartet at our wedding.

We both thought they played brilliantly during both the church service and reception meal and many of our guests commented on their playing. Their choice of music was excellent and I'm very glad I left that decision to them.

So once again, many thanks
Marie-Claire and Phillip

Big Al

It was so fantastic - honest can't find the right words to explain just how well everything was. We had a bit of a panicky with the start time (know you know about that) but James helped out and all was sorted. I e-mailed James to pass on our thanks and hope the guys involved got the message.

Circus skills went well. Sumo was good. DJ was so so so helpful and really tried to get them up and dance.

Honestly we can't fault it at all was so professional.

Thank you and Thank you to all involved

Hi there

Further to my telephone conversation with a member of your staff earlier this week, I write to confirm that my husband and I were very impressed with Big Brother, who played at our wedding at the Pitbauchlie House Hotel on the 24th June.

The guys were very friendly and professional and accomodated us, and our guests, with requests where possible. The dance floor wasn't empty all night because the band had the right mix of music to suit all tastes.

Personally, I believe that a band can make or break a wedding - Big Brother certainly helped to make our night one to remember. Our guests all really seemed to enjoy themselves and everyone commented that the band were first class.

Thank you for your help and assistance in organising our big day.

Kind regards

Angela Kivistik

Hi there

Best wishes

We want to thank and congratulate you for the great job you did at our wedding.

Please thank the dj for the wonderful time and specialy for helping out with the bride's special request, he is a wonderful person.

And also, please, tell the piper that he did a fantastic performance, it will be unforgettable, and made our wedding very special, I was specially moved by his toast and good will words, tell him he has a special place in the Bride's heart, and her memories of that great day.

Thanks again to all in Big Al.

Dear Band,

I just wanted to write to say how much we enjoyed Saturday's event, and to thank you for a splendid evening's entertainment. It was fantastic. I have never known British people willingly get up and dance, in such large numbers, without being pushed - and I don't think it was just down to the
high proportion of former PE teachers present. The music was truly great, the ambience was magic, you were wonderful... I could go on.

Thank you so much for such a good evening. I'm not planning another event like this one in a hurry but I'll certainly recommend you to any of our friends planning their own events. You were all wonderful !

Good wishes from Diana and Celia

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please could you pass on my thanks to the DJ who worked at our Ball on Saturday night at the Marine Hotel in North Berwick, I think his name was James. I didn't manage to catch him at the end of the night and I wanted to let him know how pleased we were with how it went.

Anyway he was superb, very accommodating to several guests requests and everyone had a fantastic time. We'll be seeing one of your guys at our children's disco on 9th June aswell.

Many thanks again.

Simone Anderson

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just a small note to say thanks to the DJ for the party.

Anyway he was excellent.Extremely helpful and flexible.Played everything we wanted. AND he even looked like Steve Wright!!!

Thanks again ,I will use him for my next 50th Party.

Dear Big Al,

Just a quick note to say thanks for the entertainment last night.

After our little hick up at the start of the evening everything went very well.

"Frank Sinatra" was brilliant and I think the disco was one of the best we have had.

Happy New Year and Many Thanks

I wanted to put in writing how happy I was with the level of service your team provided on Saturday night at the dns Christmas Party.

Dear Big Al,

Just wanted to say a big thank you to the band for a wonderful show at our Wedding at Borthwick Castle on the 29th October. I think the band was called Seattle but they were great and I received lots of compliments about them afterwards - the DJ too!

Thanks for providing a great service.
