"Thank you sooo much for helping us have such a wonderful wedding day!
I received and continue to receive so many compliments on how wonderful you all were. They said the variety of music, the performance, the volume, everything was just perfect.
You truly went out of your way and the extra mile on so many occasions in terms of helping us have just what we wanted and have everything run so smoothly.
We truly appreciate everything you did for us pre, during and post the wedding."
Mr and Mrs Bartlett
"Now that the dust has settled after Katy and Fraser's wedding and the last house guests have departed , I'd just like to say how much we appreciated your musical contribution to our happy celebrations at Constantia Uitsig.
Thank you preparing our special requests so beautifully - your playing and style created an ambience which enhanced the proceedings in a really magical way. The slowed down tempo version we asked for of 'I want to hold your hand' was perfect, and many thanks too for your patience and flexibility over the last minute changes. Katy and Fraser (and the whole family) send their thanks and appreciation to you both."
"Dear Pete and Kerryn, Just a short note to thank you for the fantastic performance for my corporate event last week at Groote Schuur Presidential Estate.
My guests were extremely impressed with your performance and repertoire and my VIP couldn’t say enough about how perfectly your selection of music suited the venue and audience. I also had a number of comments on how much the guests enjoyed the music during their dinner.
It is such a pleasure working with two such professional and sincere performers; thank you for being so accommodating on the evening as well.
I look forward to working with you again many times in the future."
Carryn Ortlepp, Greenroute
"Hi Peter & Kerryn,

We had so many compliments, you made our day as much as all the guests and the setting!

I called the client this morning. His wife's 50th birthday party was a resounding success and one of the highlights was the entertainment. He was very impressed with the two of you and received many compliments from the guests. Thank you for doing Musiciz Entertainment proud."
Reneé Murray, Musiciz Entertainment
"Hi Kerryn & Peter
Thank you so much for keeping our guests entertained with your delightful music. You helped make the event a great success."
"Dear Take Two,
I would like to thank you once again for playing for us last week. There is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that your music is very much a part of the reason that there have been so many compliments about the Barmitzvah. You both created a divine atmosphere."
