SOME OF THE NICE THINGS OUR FEZZIFANS HAVE SAID ABOUT US!
‘Dear Ruth, Liz and Antonella.
‘Just a quick message to say a big THANK YOU for Saturday night.
‘What a wonderful evening and how amazing you got just about everyone up on the dance floor.
‘Your instructions were clear and you made us all feel like ‘old hands’ by the end of the evening.
‘We had such a fun time and many guests have got back to me to say how much they enjoyed it.
‘An absolute pleasure.
‘Hopefully be back in touch for another one this time next year.
‘All the very best.’
‘Please accept our heartfelt thanks following our party last Saturday night. Absolutely everyone thoroughly enjoyed your amazing contribution which helped make our evening such a wonderful and memorable occasion. We also really appreciated your patience with us all – it got a little tricky when we occasionally lost our partner, or had to crawl under a very small arch made by our little ones (our youngest granddaughter had celebrated her second birthday the day before our party and kept on going till the end), but to see their excited faces and the energy which they brought to their first ceilidh will stay with us forever. It was also lovely to see you enjoying yourselves too! We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who may be looking for a first-class ceilidh band, and we wish you all the best for your future events.’
‘Hi Ruth, Just to say a big thank you for Sunday, everyone really enjoyed themselves and I hope you did too. I will recommend you to anyone who are looking for a good party band.’
‘Thanks Fezziwig, you made the evening such fun. And thanks too for your patience – it was like herding cats, but we got there and danced our socks off. What a fun workout. You were all amazing…’
‘Hi Ruth. Thank you for a wonderful evening on Saturday. We are receiving a huge amount of appreciation from those attending and saying what fun it was. That is down to you lovely ladies who made the evening go with a swing. We will certainly recommend you for any future occasion that arises.’
‘Thank you very much for … a very enjoyable evening… everyone really enjoyed themselves. Great playing and calling; super fun. We shall be in touch when [our French town-twinning friends] return in two years for their biennial visit and shall certainly recommend you to other groups.’
‘A brilliant time again this year [at the Harmony Festival 2016]; restful, relaxing and the ceilidh Saturday night was an absolute hoot…. You were brilliant and dealt with our ineptitude brilliantly, great fun x’
‘Hi Ruth. Firstly, may I say thank you very much for Sunday evening. We have had so many emails / phone calls etc. saying how much fun they had and how much they enjoyed the dancing and the band. Not even the weather dampened their spirits. Please pass on our appreciation to Liz and Antonella, who was really lovely and friendly. Please thank them both for me.’
‘I would just like to thank you all very much for a brilliant night last night. I had a wonderful time and I know everyone else really enjoyed themselves as well. Thank you once again.’
‘Good morning Ruth. Just a little note to say thank you all so much for another great night last night. I think everyone had a good time….’
‘Thank you for playing! We had a whale of a time! You added so much to the celebrations – we couldn’t have picked a better band! Everyone said how much they’d enjoyed it. I would recommend you to anyone.’
‘[We] want to say how much we enjoyed your performance on Saturday evening. We think it was very clear that all our guests did too. We feel that you really sensed what you could do and contributed greatly to the success of the night… keep up the good work.’
‘… Brilliant, exactly what [we’d] been hoping for, absolutely made the evening, lots of friends calling … to say what a marvellous time they’d had’.
‘We had an absolutely fantastic time last week, and Fezziwig was just what we needed to get our party swinging. We have received so many emails and cards this week from everyone who came, saying how much fun they had. We were delighted too that everyone was keen to get up and dance, have fun, and generally make fools of themselves.’
‘The band was great, they did a wonderful job getting us up and taking us gently through our paces…. I liked the way the dances got steadily more difficult as the evening progressed…’
‘One of the younger guests – who originally wasn’t too keen on the idea of a ceilidh, let alone actually getting up and dancing – emailed: “Thank you so much for an awesome weekend. I haven’t enjoyed myself so much in a long time. It put me in such a good mood for the week.” ’
‘I just want to say a big Thank You for playing at my birthday party. You were great! We had a really good time! Your performance was just right and we received many compliments from my family and friends too. I shall certainly recommend you to others.’
‘Just to say thank you for your excellent music for our ceilidh – we were very impressed. We had a wonderful evening – so much so that we’re considering a first anniversary ceilidh celebration next year!’
‘We just wanted to say thank you to the Fezziwig Ceilidh Band for playing at our wedding…. We thoroughly enjoyed your music and had so much fun dancing. You helped to make our special day Perfect.’
‘We were so delighted with Fezziwig at our party on Sunday. Not only was the music very enjoyable but they also responded so sensitively and appropriately to our occasion that any guest I have spoken to has been full of praises for them…. Warmest thanks.’
‘… such a good band for my daughter’s 21st birthday party…. We all had a wonderful time and I was told at the end by one of the guests (a young girl who is a professional dancer) that it was far better than clubbing!’
WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT DANCING!
‘… the good old-fashioned dance, which has the least of vanity and the most of merriment in it… that half-rustic rhythm which seems to banish pretentious etiquette. ’
Marian Evans, aka George Eliot (The Mill On The Floss, 1860).
‘ “ You be bound to dance at Christmas because ‘tis the time of the year; you must dance at weddings because ‘tis the time o’ life. At christenings folk will even smuggle in a reel or two…” ’
Thomas Hardy (The Return Of The Native, 1878).
‘Dance, dance, for the figure is easy, The tune is catching and will not stop; Dance till the stars come down from the rafters; Dance, dance, dance till you drop.’
W H Auden.
‘We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.’
‘Dance is the hidden language of the soul.’
‘La danse, c’est la poésie avec des bras et des jambs.’ (Dance is poetry with arms and legs.)
