You and your band deserve a big pat on your backs for an excellent presentation of music on the day. The comments that we have received have been all congratulatory of the level of music which was of a most enjoyable standard. Thanks to all of you.

Warm wishes for a peaceful New Year to you all and your families,


Herbert (New Year’s Eve)

Thank you for informing me of Calibre's availability to be considered to play at the New Year's Eve danceI am pleased to inform you that, having agreed to a price within our budget, there was very little else to consider in terms of talent or ability with the other available bands and so, if you are agreeable, we will be delighted to have Calibre perform at the function.  Please confirm that this is acceptable and I will promptly draw up a contract of engagement and have it mailed to you by return.

It will be a pleasure to be playing alongside musicians who I have respected over the years, not only for their talents but also for the vast contribution they have made towards the many HELP A POOR CHILD fund raising functions.


Take care and hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Steve

 

We enjoyed our party so much and the reaction to your band was fantastic.  We have had a stream of emails from our guests praising the way in which 'Calibre' were instrumental (pun!) in making the party such a success.  We've bumped into other friends and neighbours who were there, who reckon it was the best party they've been to in years!  We really felt that you all played so well and obviously thoroughly enjoyed what you were doing.  The encores went on and on and I think you would have played until 3am if you had the chance!

 

Many thanks and good luck for the future.

 

Kind regards

"Calibre brought the party to life with their live vocals and individual performances. Definitely worth the money for the music and entertainment value they bring with them. A band I would certainly recommend.

Hi Steve and Sally,

 

Hope all well. Sorry for the delay in replying.

 

Just to let you know that your band is still being talked about every time we meet friends who attended the engagement. The floor was never empty! Says how good the music was for itself, eh?

 

Well done and thank you once again to each and every member of the band for making our evening a very memorable and enjoyable one.

 

Best regards to all members of the band.

Everyone really enjoyed the band.   I love it when Trevor chats over the mike.  Friends were raving over them .  You can see from the pics they were all dancing  I loved the jingo song,  even Stan's youngest brother was up dancing. 


My friend Susie would love to have them for her 40th.  Not sure when that is  Maybe a year from now, 2 years maybe. 


The man doing the door that night asked why the Holy Rood didn’t get them in more often!  He could see everyone having a good time  And the word got out upstairs in the members bar.

Please thank Steve and the band, who were fantastic. So entertaining but friendly and natural at the same time.

I thought Calibre were brilliant. I would definitely recommend them.

We set the band a tough brief. We wanted a theme running through the evening with a number of events during the night which meant a tight timetable and a broad musical challenge across the generations. In every area Steve and the band proved fantastic. Working with us to ensure we had the best Ball Event since we started running over six years ago. We have had nothing but great feedback from the over 250 people who attended. The floor was full all night long - a great time had by all.

Dear Calibre,


I wanted to write and say thank you for helping to make the GOAL UK ball a success on Saturday night.  Everyone seemed to have a wonderful time and you were all brilliant!

Dear Sally
 
I just wanted to say, on behalf of Intertek, how much we enjoyed the Calibre performance at our Christmas Party at Horwood House this year. The band had a wide repertoire, playing such a good selection of music to meet every taste; they were very talented and professional. It was really good to have a live band at the event - they definitely made the evening and we will certainly consider hiring them again for future events.
 
Regards

Dear Steve,


Thanks for another memorable performance from Calibre. We have had Calibre playing for the past nine years at our Annual Christmas Dinner Dance. Every year when it comes to choosing Music, it’s easy, just call Calibre. Everyone from the Managing Director to the junior staff enjoy your music. Over the years you have become good friends too.

I would recommend you without hesitation to liven up any event. Good Luck & hope to see you in 2010.

Warm regards,

Hi Sally,

Thank you for your lovely message, I was delighted to meet Steve and the Band, they are excellent and they played all the popular songs that we all can sing along too. Feedback from friends was fantastic. Please convey my thanks to Steve for a dedicated song, it was great.

 

With best wishes.

"Hi Steve and Sally,

 

On behalf of the Richmond Cricket Club, I would like to again pass on my sincere thanks for the wonderful contribution Calibre made to our Summer Ball. I have had nothing but positive feedback from the attendees and the versatility you provide in your music catered to everyone's tastes and certainly had everyone dancing. On a personal level, it was comforting to have such a professional  and experienced outfit to work with and perform, as I knew it was one less worry I would have for the night. When it comes around to organising next years ball, Calibre will be on the top of my list for music!

 

Regards,

DM

Social Convenor

Dear Sally,

 

Thank you for your email and we certainly enjoyed that day. The party went so well , thanks to Steve and Calibre who made the dinner dance lively and enjoyable .  The band was very professional  , good musicians, played a good variety of music for dancing for both young and old to join in . The dance floor was full all the time, even the bar manager commented that our group knows how to party and that is all down to the good music from Calibre which made the evening a great success.

I hope you have many more successes and we definitely will contact you if we have more events like these in the future. 

 

Best wishes,

 

June-representing the BDAUK

Hi Steve

 

I have had the chance to listen to Calibre on two separate occasions.  Firstly at The Autumn Ball and secondly at my sister's wedding this year in March.  The band are brilliant! 

 

My only regret is that I didn't know about "Calibre" before so that I could have booked them to play at my wedding!

 

 

Mr P

Dear Sally & Stephen

 

I am writing to say how much my family, guests and myself enjoyed the music by Calibre played for my Birthday celebration at Tilsworth Golf Centre, 12th June 2010.

 

Many thanks.

 

Mr Evans

Hi Steve,


Hope you're well. We wanted to say we thought yourself and the band were great at our wedding held at "The Cloisters",Whipsnade Zoo in March 2010. Everyone enjoyed all the popular tunes and the dance floor was packed throughout the evening.


We recommend Calibre to anyone looking for a band for their wedding.


Kind regards


Mr & Mrs P

“really enjoyed the live music played by Calibre, great vibe!”


Flavia Cacace (Vincent & Flavia from the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing)

Dear Sally,


Just a quick note to say thank you to Calibre for contributing to a wonderful fundraising evening at The Vincent & Flavia Gala Ball. With a very tough headline act to follow, Calibre proved to be the perfect booking - the music during dinner was spot on in creating a relaxed and elegant atmosphere, and once Vincent & Flavia had strutted their stuff Calibre had the dancefloor filled from the first beat for the rest of the night.


Many thanks also to Steve for coping so well with the decision by the dancers to change their music at the eleventh hour! We managed to raise over £6,000 and everyone I have spoken to since the event has said what a great night it was.


Thank you again,

David (Organiser - Vincent & Flavia Gala Ball)

Dear Sally

 

We wanted to write to say to you that ‘Calibre’ were a great success on Friday night at the Crazy Bear, and we would like to thank Steve and his band members for catering so well to the audience and giving us some great music to listen and dance to.

 

It was appreciated that whilst we were having the meal the volume was such that people could hear each other talk, but once the formalities were over people got onto the dance floor.

  

Thank you once again and we hope there will be occasion to book the band again –maybe next year?

 

Very best wishes

Hi Steve,

I am sorry I didn't film Calibre but we listened to your band's every song and enjoyed immensely. You play the kind of music we like. Thank you for a great performance that day.. Good luck with your future projects and I will certainly keep a regular tab on Calibre through your website.

Dear Sally - A big thank you to you Steve and all the boys in the band they did a great job….much appreciated by all… we had a great day and the band was excellent.

I will be very happy to recommend you…..lots of good feedback from the party goers. It maybe that it was because you saved them from my sax playing!…but I think it was really because the boys were very good.

 

Don't forget to chill the champagne…enjoy.

"Thank you for providing the music for our wedding reception at the RAC on 9 June 2012.

 Your band were totally professional, they arrived on time, set up quietly, waited patiently whilst the tea ceremony overran, they played all the music requested, were totally flexible and were able to gauge the mood of the dancers, playing fast or slow numbers by general feedback. The dance floor was full all evening. The music selection suited all the varied age groups. I cannot recommend the band enough.

    So thank you once again

      Very best wishes

         Nigel and Jane Paget. Sophia and Tom Goozee

P.S. see you for our 60'th bash"

“Dear Sally/Steve and the team that make Calibre!,

 

You are all amazing! Louise and I had a wonderful idea 18 months before our wedding and we knew we had to have a band for our evening entertainment… ‘It had to be you!’. You learnt some very special songs for our day but have to say that you blew the world away with your rendition of ‘I’m in the mood for love’ for our entrance song.

 

So much passion, professionalism and perfection went into making our day ours – I can’t imagine not having such wonderful people working so close to us on our big day. Sadly, Louise won’t let me get married again so I’m just going to think of another reason for you to play for us – maybe a house warming :)  I hope the success continues and I cannot wait until we see and hear you again.

 

A great big thank you to everyone there! Our very best…

 

Amar & Louise,

Dear Calibre


I just wanted to thank you personally for the wonderful performance you gave at the Heritage Foundation Christmas Lunch last Sunday and also for your brilliant liaison behind the scenes, which was brought to my attention. The feedback has been great and obviously everyone had a really good time.

I know how much care and work you put into to tailor making your programmes for such events and it shows. True professionals all. I very much hope to have the opportunity of working with you again soon.


Kind regards
