“Many thanks for all your hard work in organising the P. R. Jazz Quartet and Fabulous All Stars to appear at our fund raising Jazz Cafe at Sandown Park Racecourse. The Quartet played an important part in welcoming our guests at the start of the evening and we heard complimentary remarks from so many people about the choice of music and high quality performance. The performance by the Fabulous All Stars was brilliant and really helped to lift the party mood. The choice of music was just right for this audience and more people danced than at previous functions. Thank you again, and all your fantastic musicians, for putting on such a professional and high class performance for us.”.
