The band appeared to be having as good time as the party goers! Everyone has been talking about how great the party was for weeks, and in particular Tongue in Chic. Even the gig-die hards said “what an amazing band”. If you want a special night call on Tongue in Chic, they are worth every penny!”
“Just returned from our honeymoon and wanted to say a massive thank you for the fantastic music you and your band provided on our wedding day, you were all simply brilliant!!! Everyone has been talking about it for the past three weeks and for us it simply was the icing on the cake, what a way to finish a wedding!! I am now trying to find any excuse to book you again as i want another party, and don’t be surprised if you get new enquiries from people at the wedding as i have had to pass on your details to a few. Please make sure you pass on our thanks to your band and keep on playing because your act is faultless. From a very happy customer, thank you!!!”
