Sergeant G Simpson - Defence Academy

Dear Chris, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you and your band for your performance at our summer ball. You performed two excellent sets and everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Shaun Reynolds PEC - Warrant Officers and Sergeants

Dear Chris, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, for once again supplying top class entertainment for the Warrant Officers and Sergeants Mess, Summer Ball. The Shades were nothing short of outstanding. Right from the outset, you had guests on the dance floor, with an aptly named ‘Let Me Entertain You’. Both sets were so powerful and engaging, that I thought literally bring the marquee down. Everyone, I spoke to on the night, and since, commented on how amazing you were.

Emirates Palace Abu Dhabi U.A.E

Dear Chris And The Shades, We would like to personally thank your group for the entertainment and making it such a success of the recently concluded New Years Eve Gala event in the Emirates Palace. This would not be possible without your very good performance that complimented the entire evening of entertainment. It is very gratifying to have you as one of the major performer’s, which made the event truly memorable.

Liz Drake Mother of the bride

Chris, I just wanted to say how very much we enjoyed having you all here on Saturday evening to play for James and Pippa’s wedding. We have not had a live band here before, can’t think why after that performance. We all had such a good time and just loved every minute of it!! Thank you so much for all you did to make the evening go so well, it had a terrific buzz and I know everyone had a good time, especially the Bride. While you were packing up, we just sat there saying we really didn’t want it to end. It certainly helped to make the day a truly special one

Anna & Sean - bride and groom
