Hi Colin,

Thanks for giving us such superb show, our 70th birthdays will certainly be one to remember! The whole evening went very well and you were such a big part of it! My Husband is very much into The Shadows music and loved what you played! So glad we saw you when we did as we were just about out of ideas as to what to do for the entertainment!

Best wishes,

Dear Colin,

I want to congratulate you on such a fantastic night! Thank you also for stepping in at such short notice! We had a fabulous time and the dancefloor was heaving! The encore seemed to go on for at least an hour! I told you that they would keep you busy if you went down well with them didn't I? Ha Ha! We hope to have you again in the future!

Dear Colin,

Many thanks for your performance at Sherwood Forest Golf Club on New Years Eve.
It was a great evening and much of that was down to you. Your ability to judge
the mood of the audience and perform appropriately was a credit to your talent,
well done!
Comments from members ranged from ' This is Brilliant ! ' to ' This is the best
New Year Party Yet !' A great night was had by all and we look forward to your
next performance at Sherwood.

Dear Colin,

Just thought I'd drop you a few lines to thank you for a brilliant night. Our Daughter Cheryl was very nervous on her wedding day but in the event was so pleased with how the the whole day went and then to be topped off with you on the night it made for an unforgettable evening. Her husband Terry is a big Shadows fan and was so impressed by the instrumentals you played! In approximately two years my other Daughter is getting married and would certainly like to consider booking you again! I will contact you again with regards to this of course. Thank you once again!

  "Colin played at our New Year's Eve party in 2012 and we were so impressed
that we booked him straight away for 2013.  The audience covered a wide age
range and we had a another wonderful evening - Colin played a mixture of old
and new keeping the dance floor busy the whole time.  I am sure we will be
booking him again.

Dad's 70th Birthday Party @ The Cluntergate Centre, Horbury, Wakefield

We booked Colin to play at our dads 70th birthday. Everybody commented how good he was and we were over the moon with the atmosphere created at the party! A perfect booking!

Really good communication throughout the booking and Colin even played some songs we requested which weren’t his usual repertoire- very accommodating!

My dad has a super time and I think nearly everyone was on the dance floor to Colin’s rendition of ‘Delilah’.

Thanks Colin,
