Client Testimonial: A Love Note to Free Spirit


As you know, we love to receive letters from our clients!  We just received a wonderful note from the Mother of the Bride raving about Free Spirit’s performance at her daughter’s October wedding at the National Museum for Women in the Arts in Washington, DC.

The First Dance

Thank you so much for the incredible note and congratulations to the beautiful couple.  We were honored to be a part of your very special day.

Dear Mike,
What can we say?  A simple thank you doesn’t seem adequate.  I can speak for all of us, Ellen, Patrick and all our guests, when I say that Free Spirit is the best band in DC!!  From the very beginning when Ellen and Patrick went to hear you play at the CharityWorks event last year, you have been nothing but helpful and accommodating to us.  You made everything very easy and stress-free.  And then, on top of all the logistics and administrative paperwork, the music was the highlight!  The energy, song selection, crowd interaction, outstanding vocalists, and incredible horns just blew us away.  Everyone had such a great time dancing non stop throughout the evening.  I especially loved the jazz music during cocktails– just the right touch to start the event.

Mike, thank you for sending along the sheet music for Ellen and Patrick’s first dance song.  I am sure they will want to thank you themselves when they return from their honeymoon.  That is so thoughtful of you to send it along and it will make a wonderful addition to their memory book.  John and I would also like to thank the band for learning the song, My Wish for You, for the father -daughter dance.  It was so special to see everyone gathered around the railing and singing along with the band as John and Ellen had their special time on the dance floor.  It is a memory we will cherish forever.

I’m sure Ellen and Patrick would love to send along any special comments for you to reference in the future.  You are free to use any of my words as well.

Thank you again, Mike.  As I’ve said to Christine, you may work with many brides and grooms and their families, but we have worked with only one band, so Free Spirit will always be a special part of our memories.  Thanks for making the evening so special.

all the best,
