March 2016 -A golden wedding barn dance

‘We were very happy with your band and the caller – thank you very much for making our party so enjoyable. We all thought it was a tremendous fun and it went all too quickly. We also very much appreciated the way the caller joined in the dancing as most of us did not exactly know what we were doing but he we was very good at encouraging us. The beauty of the barn dance is that even if one does not know what one is doing, it is still possible to enjoy it very much.  Our littler granddaughters had great fun as the caller treated them on equal terms with adults.  We would certainly recommend you to anyone who is thinking of a similar kind of entertainment. 

Thank you very much again and good luck for the future

Hi Charlotte we had such a fantastic time! We haven’t laughed so much for ages so please pass on our grateful thanks to all your band members as we loved it! Several friends have said they couldn’t believe that their husbands even got up and danced. The only down side was being out shone by your children as they picked it all up so much quicker than us! Will definitely be holding another one and you will be the first to know!

Thank you again,

Hi Charlotte,
We had a wonderful day, the part we have had the most comments from our guests was how great the dancing and the band were, it really made the evening! Thank you so much and if we have any events in future we will be sure to be in touch!
I especially would quite like to do it all again with a dress more suited to dancing!
Thanks again,

‘Hi Charlotte
Your band were excellent & your caller’s instructions were easy to follow & pitched just right.  I have had a lot of good feed back from my work colleagues too this week. 
If I ever organise another evening then I will definitely be using you again. 
Many thanks,

‘Hi Charlotte,
  Saturday was fantastic and you were marvellous! Such patience with a bunch of novices and a rather cramped space!
  Everyone has been thanking me for organising and it couldn’t have been better’.

The caller Tony was excellent. He was easy to understand. Very good with the children and encompassed everybody. The band were great without drowning out the caller. Couldn’t fault the service.
Very many thanks.
Kind regards

‘Hi Charlotte,

                   Thank you to you, the band and the caller.  I had a brilliant birthday and for a barn dance, so much rests on the quality of the band!

 My friends who had never barn-danced before were a little nervous, but are now converted!  Everyone has told me what a brilliant time they had and that I have set the bar for 30th birthdays!

 Kind regards,

 Isabel (30th birthday party)


‘The band and caller were fantastic thank you. Lots of good comments. I was particularly impressed with how Tony handled the kids.

 Many thanks

‘ We all had a great time.  I think the most memorable was the Belgium Medieval Dance which you joined in with! (The Bear Dance)
The Dancing was arranged so we could all join in, even the oldies and the              2 and 3  year olds.’

‘We were absolutely delighted with the band, last night was fantastic! Everyone has had  so much fun talking about it this morning and reflecting on last night so delighted and thought you were all fantastic. Trying to think of another excuse for party now to do it again! (might see if I can do it for my big birthday next year!) Couple of email comments I have pasted below that colleagues have emailed in this morning!

Well done Storrington, a fabulous evening last night.  Jenny and I had a really lovely time so thank you for all your hard work organising this event.

It was great to see everyone making fools of themselves but having such a laugh about it.

Hi Hattie, Just to say such good fun last night, loved the dancing and thought it was such a good idea to get everyone involved.’

‘The feedback we have received from everybody has been excellent, someone said it was the best Motts event they have been to and you were a huge part of it. Your band were brilliant and the caller was great at getting everyone up and dancing, the way he adapted his style to work with the children as well was perfect. I think the fact we asked you to stay on for the whole night was testament to how good you all were and how keen everyone was to keep dancing! After some hesitation at the start from our European colleagues, everyone was won over by how much fun it is to have a go, even if you don’t quite get the hang of it!

It was a real pleasure to deal with you and I will be keeping your details ready to pass on or for us to use again. I hope you also enjoyed the event.
Thank you for all your hard work,

Everyone really enjoyed themselves and you pitched the dances well for the hot weather. I am very impressed with your caller as he has a very relaxed approach – putting everyone at ease. Thank you for staying on a bit.
I will definitely recommend you to friends.
With kind regards

The barn dance was brilliant!  It was a bit of a risk just choosing you off the internet but we couldn’t have been more pleased.  Everyone seemed to enjoy it and it was lovely to watch everyone having so much fun.   The caller was fantastic with the children – proving to be flexible and with a great sense of humour.  Thanks again for making our party so special and memorable.

Hi Charlotte,
We had an fantastic day on the 6th. The band was great- the caller very patient and got us all up dancing young and old. Everybody who I have spoken to said they really enjoyed it.
Thank you very much

We were thrilled with Tight Squeeze you managed to get everyone up dancing and your caller did a marvellous job talking us through the dances to get us going. All of our staff have said it was the best party night we have had and one even commented that if they did Barn Dancing at their local gym she would sign up immediately.
Thanks Again

Hi Charlotte, We were really happy with the Band and Caller on Friday night. As soon as the band started up I just wanted to get up and dance, a great sound and wonderful fiddling!, Hope to do it again , perhaps in the Autumn., Sue (Burn’s night ceilidh at a sports club)

Dear Charlotte, thank you so much for coming to our school on Thursday. Everyone had a really great time and particularly well done to you for coping with us! You both got it just right for us and thanks for helping us out with our secret santa too!
I hope you both have a great Christmas and many thanks once again,
Best wishes

Feedback from friends and family at the party about the band has been extremely positive. THANK YOU. Everybody loved the music.
The start of the “do” was disorganised (nothing at all to do with the band) and they came in as a calming professional influence and where so helpful in how they adapted to the situation. The caller engendered such a fun friendly atmosphere that everyone felt involved. I am very grateful to “Tight Squeeze” they were fantastic.Sue and Jeremy

Thank you so much for playing for us on Friday night. Everyone who came had a brilliant night, everyone enjoyed the music and especially the dancing. I have passed your details on to a friend of mine who was looking for a band for another event, and I will be recommending you to as many people as I can!(30th Birthday)

Hi Charlotte

The night was just perfect and lots of people are talking about it in the playground.  I have had a number of people asking me to arrange another, so no doubt I’ll be in touch in the new year.
Thank you for such a good time!
Best wishes Jo(School PTA)
