People say:

"Thank you so much for playing on our special day, and for the dance calling as well, it was enormous fun! You guys truly made the evening." Daniella, Bride (UK)

"Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. It was a joy for us to have you there. Thank you also for letting us sing 'Dance Me to the End of Love' with you, and also for doing songs with our friend." Deb, Bride (Australia)

Thank you so much for playing so wonderfully for Abigail's bat mitzvah party on Saturday - it was a very special occasion and made all the more so by your extremely talented trio. We have had so many comments from our non-Jewish friends who had not really experienced klezmer before. Victoria, mother of bat mitzvah-iste (UK)

The dancing was great. Ilana was understated in how she gave instructions and got everyone to follow her lead. We especially enjoyed watching the teenagers getting involved! Suzanne, Bride (UK)
