Hi Philip. I hope all is well with you and that you have been busy since our wedding with other bookings.
Catherine and I wanted to drop you and the band a message to say a massive thank you for your efforts on our wedding day.
We wouldn't have enough space in an email to write down all the positive comments our guests had to say about your performance, but I can assure it was a lot and all very complimentary!
The 2 singers were amazing and we felt the voices really complimented each other on the night.
We will be recommending you without hesitation to anyone we can. Thank you again.

Phil, FireFly! were fantastic playing at Linda's party, and hugely contributed to the success of the the evening.
Everyone we have spoken to, or who have sent us messages, has said what a brilliant band you are and how the music you played was exactly what everyone wanted to hear and to dance to.
So to you and each member of the band a big, big 'thank you' from everyone who was there and especially from my daughter
Julie, Linda and me.
(Tony & Linda, 50th Birthday, The Warren, Kent. Jan 2017)
Just got back from honeymoon. Charlotte and I both wanted to say a massive thank you to Firefly for their great performance at our wedding on the 10th September at West Heath.
Everything from the first dance to the end was fantastic and we have had so many great comments about how good they were and how they made the night.
Please do pass on our thanks to those who performed on the night!
We will certainly recommend you moving forward! Many thanks again.

Hi Philip. Just got back from honeymoon and wanted to say a massive thank you to you & the rest of the band, you all did such an incredible job at our wedding bringing the party to life in the evening & I did not get off the dance floor all night!
Not only that but you went that extra mile to learn "hold on" especially for me & it was such a special treat to have all my friends dancing to my favourite song.
I can't thank you enough for everything you helped to make our day the most amazing day of our life, I could not recommend you more highly.
Let us know when you have a local gig coming up as would love to come & see you.
Joanne & Steve
(Weddong, Whitstable, Kent. March 2016)
Morning Phil. Please say a big thank you to the band for putting on a wonderful show last Saturday night.
All the guests we've spoken to since the party have commented on how great the music and singing was, so many compliments, "awesome party", "fantastic evening", "fantastic party", "great night", "the icing on the cake for Kim", "she'll never forget her 50th".
Plus the classic quote from our German guests, "pay them some more money, we want another hour" then after explaining our licencing laws, "well pay them to come back to your house"! I hope Saturday night generates plenty of future work.
We'll definitely be back in touch to book you again, maybe my 60th or even our wedding one day! Best wishes to you all and thanks again,
Kevin & Kim
(50th Birthday, Bromley, Kent. Feb 2016)
Hi Phil, Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for Saturday! The band were truly amazing and really made the night go with a bang!

The Fire Flys performed at our wedding and so many of our guests were asking where we had found you guys and how good you are.
We are so happy that we had you at our wedding thank you!
(Charlotte & Scott, wedding, Westerham Golf Club. Nov 2014)
Thank you so much for truly making my wedding day a day and night to remember. The band were just absolutely brilliant and I have had so many people asking how to find them. The girls were just awesome singers and the dance floor was busy all night which is exactly what I hoped for.
Thank you for your patience given our schedule slips and for accommodating our requested tunes in style, I will never forget it and will definitely not only recommend you but use you again if I am able to in the future.
I found you on facebook and I'll put a recommendation there for you. In Henley I belong to a group that often ask for band requests for weddings and would love to be able to promote you on this?
I believe the owners of the main house here already took your details for their summer party so hopefully will see you in the near future
Best Wishes, Zoe.
(Zoe & Gavin, wedding. Henley On Thames. Sept 2014)
Thank you so much to you and the rest of the team for such a great show on Saturday night.
Everyone said how great the band was and it seemed like everyone had a good time - our marquee floor was actually bent which was testament to the amount of dancing which went on!
Hope the rest of the weddings go well this year and we will look for opportunities to recommend you!
(Katherine & Laurence, wedding, Gloucester. August 2014)
I would wholly recommend FireFly! the energy and performances were fantastic, you definitely got everybody up on their feet and wanting more! Everybody had a fantastic time and the feedback from the evening was nothing but glowing reports. In fact I had two enquiries for hiring the band for other people's functions! Thank you.
(N Mariosa, Summer Ball, Ravensood School. July 2014)

(Matt & Tonya, wedding, Beckehham - Kent. Feb 2014)

You played a great variety of songs, and everyone was dancing from the moment you started to play. FireFly! you were fantastic!
(Peter White, Rugby Club Gala Ball, Bromley. Sept 2013)
I just wanted to send a huge thank you for Saturday night the band was fantastic and thank you for taking all my requests into account.
The first dance and father daughter dance was truly sung beautifully and couldn't have asked for a better way to start our evening!
The dance floor was busy all evening, and everyone had a fabulous time! I will be sure to recommend you in the future.
(Hayley & Christopher Mott, wedding, Bletchingley - Surrey. Sept 2013)
As you'll remember both me and Gemma were very happy and what's more very impressed with the bands performance.
Using our vague guideline of suitable music we feel you interpreted our requirements perfectly and reflected it in the set.
We had so many compliments on our wedding and most of them mentioned the band. I have personally recommended you twice since and would certainly call on you for any future events.
Cheers Phil and do let us know of anytime you guys are performing locally.
(Sam & Gemma, wedding, Westerham. August 2013)
What can I say? Great night on Saturday; you guys were absolutely brilliant. Thanks ever so much.
Everyone loved the band and music selection. Kate was fantastic, especially her rendition of Skyfall - mesmerising ! Hope it becomes one of your staple numbers.
Oh well, back to reality today and my 50s...
(Calvin Walker, 50th Birthday, Knockholt - Kent. June 2013)
We thought you were all AMAZING we loved every minute of your performance. The whole 'booking the band' was effortless from the first email. I couldn't fault you at all. The comments we had from friends and family were brilliant and you really made the evening!
I will be recommending to you to everyone!
(Naomi & Eamon Grimes, wedding, Lenham - Kent. April 2013)
I wanted to drop you an email to say thank you so much. The band were fantastic, played all the right songs and to top it all off they were able to play our first dance. Everyone had a great night and has commented on how good the band were, we didn't want it to end.
I'll have no hesitation in recommending FireFly and hopefully we'll have the pleasure of hearing you guys play sometime soon.
(Nichola & Richard Warrin, wedding, Thame - Buckinghamshire. April 2013)
We loved you guys and everyone we spoke to said how incredible you were. You saw our dance floor...it was constantly packed with people dancing and people loved the mix of music from old and new. Everything in the lead up was great too. When are you next playing a public gig? Would love to see you guys perform again.
(Jennifer & Robert Lott, wedding, Tunbridge Wells. Sept 2012)
We both wanted to send you a quick note to thank you all SO much for such an amazing gig you performed at the wedding.
We've had so many people asking for your contact details (which we've happily passed on) and many more commenting on 'how awesome the band was'
We both said to each other from the start that the band would make a big difference between a good wedding and a great wedding and we're both so grateful to you and Firefly for making it such a memorable day and being so flexible with our requirements. I'd thoroughly recommend you and would be happy to be a reference for you anytime.
I wish you and the band every success in the future and hope that we have the opportunity to listen to you again.
All the best, The (very happy) Jacobs'
(Darren & Michele Jacobs, wedding, Romsey - Hampshire. August 2012)
The band were terrific and really capped a great day for both of us. We both felt that the band knew what kind of songs to play based on the initial discussion we had. I know lots of people at the wedding were asking about where we found you, and also commented on what a good job you did.
So overall, a 10/10!
(Tamsin & Jonathan, wedding, Hythe - Kent. August 2012)
Phil, just wanted to say how AWESOME you guys were at our wedding last week. In the top 5 things that people had to say about our whole wedding, one of them was 'where the hell did you find that band, they're incredible' !!! Thank you so so much for an amazing night, at no other wedding I have ever been to have I seen a dance floor packed out the entire night. Unbelievably chuffed, and thanks for learning our first dance in time. Rob and I both agreed it was amazing to hear it live. Hope to see you again soon at one of your gigs. xx
(Jenny Lott, wedding, High Rocks - Tunbridge Wells. Sept 2012)
Thank you for performing at Katye and Alex's wedding, I really enjoyed all the music and singing and I think the rest of the wedding party did as well. I will definitely recommend you to others that need a band.
(Lynda Winder, daughter's wedding, Port Lympne. July 2012)
Dear Philip, Thank you for playing so beautifully at our wedding last month. We had an incredible day and the music certainly helped make it so special.
We were very impressed with all the music, both in the afternoon and on the dance floor in the evening.
We had lots of comments from our guests about how good the band were and everyone enjoyed a good dance eight to the end!
We hope you and the guys enjoyed playing for us - please pass on our thanks to the rest of the team. All the Best

Philip, you guys were amazing! You won't believe the good feedback I've had today from everyone in the office ranging from the call centre agents, right through to our executives. They have all said you guys were brilliant, and I've not heard one bad thing.
Booking, organisation was all brilliant, and we will definitely want to use FireFly! again!
(Banking Company Christmas Party, Tower Hotel - London. Dec 2011)
Almost everyone I have spoken to have told me just how brilliant you and the band were at my party. And you were. You got it just right and I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the brilliant music you played/sung. No-one wanted you to finish and when you did almost everyone was up dancing by then and not one person left early!!!!
You made my party really special and just needed you all to know that.
Many thanks again.

Thank you again and we will pass on the good word.
(Sarah, wedding, Port Lympne - Kent. June 2010)
We'd just like to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding in April. You made our whole evening fantastic, with everyone dancing and thoroughly enjoying your music. All of our guests were so impressed and they are all still talking about it. It was great to have a down to earth band which at the same time being very professional band. The range of music that you played was brilliant too. We're now thinking of just having a big party so that you can come and play again. Thanks again for making our day even greater than it was.
(Damian & Alison, wedding, West Malling - Kent. April 2009)
Just to say a huge thank you to all the band for spectacular music at our Ball. The music was judged perfectly, for both the acoustic set during the reception and the main performance. The band was tight and your female vocalist is outstanding. We felt Firefly was very good value for money, especially with the disco included.
many thanks again and we hope we can be in touch again for next year,

THANK YOU a thousand times for the professional, outstanding, amazing performance you put in at our wedding on 5th July at Combe Bank! You made the evening complete and have won many, many new fans amongst our friends and family. Everyone agreed you were utterly fantastic and nobody was more thrilled than me with your special "second first dance" surprise. I was so touched that you learnt that song so quickly for us. Apologies for the tears! Nic was just great sharing the mic with Jackie and Henry for "Build Me Up Buttercup", the three of them are stars of many photos from the night! I hope you guys continue to go from strength to strength - you deserve every success.
(Fiona & Ben Bridges, Wedding, Coombe Bank - Kent. July 2008)

(Andy Bate, Wedding, Kent. Feb 2008)
Firefly performed at two charity events for DGS Mencap in April 2006 and September 2007. At both events the band were excellent and had everyone up dancing within minutes! DGS Mencap supports people with learning disabilities who were present at the events and Firefly catered to their needs whilst also accommodating everyone’s endless song requests! They are a superb band and I’d recommend them to anyone holding an event, in fact I’ve been asked many times for their details! Thank you FireFly! for two absolutely fantastic nights.
(Erica Snow, Fundraising and Communications Manager, DGS Mencap.
I just wanted to write a big thank you for the performance you guys put on for our wedding. Everyone I have spoken to about the evening thought you were all fantastic and extremely talented. I am sure in the future, whether for weddings or private functions, a lot of them will be making contact with you. Thanks for making the evening of our wedding so special for Louise and I.
(Spencer & Louise Gray, wedding, Rolvenden - Kent. June 2007)
Myself and Jemma would like to thank you and the rest of the band for your fantastic wedding performance at Broome Park on 26th May 2007.
Several people commented on how good the music was and we both had a great evening boogying along on the dancefloor! Thanks also for being so patient with Harry and Chris – your temporary additions to the band for the last half an hour or so!
We would not hesitate to recommend you to others
(Rob & Jemma Urquhart, Broome Park - Canterbury. May 2007)
Huge thanks for making our wedding so fantastic, everyone has been saying how great you were, I didn't stop dancing all night!

Excellent demo - a very talented band. So sad you are busy on the date of our wedding.
(Emma, Tenterden. April 2007)
Saw these guys play as the last band of the Farnfest, and can safely say they ended the weekend in style. Amazingly talented and enthusiastic young people who got the whole place up and dancing. I might have to throw a party just so that I can hire them! Had a great evening and look forward to seeing your next gig very soon.
(Kelly, fARNfEST. June 2006)
It sounded really good - really tight!
(Jackie, fARNfEST. June 2006)

FireFly! were fantastic. They played 2 sets and by the second song had people up and dancing - by the end of the set the dance floor was packed!! All our wedding guests asked where we'd found them and how good they were. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them - a great night!
(Karen, Buckinghamshire. July 2005)
FireFly! made my party come to life. Their wide diversity of styles and material got the guests up and dancing. Many who attended asked for their details. Particularly pleased that they could incorporate a special request. Looking forward to having them for my next big one.
(Christine, Bexleyheath. June 2005.)
