Len Thank you so much for your wonderful contribution to my father's funeral yesterday. He was a keen harmonica player and had an endless song list of tunes known 'off by heart'. Your medley from your own song-list that we compared with my dad's, was a fitting tribute and I thought it sounded very moving in the acoustics of the Church. Our family and friends all agreed. Thank you again for making the journey to be with us.'

Comment from would be booker

We were so disappointed when Len was unable to play for our anniversary party in June 2013 at the Stevenage Golf Club as he was already booked and we were unable to find anyone else who could do what he does & wished we had booked him earlier before booking the venue.

Dear Len

Thank you so much for helping to make our Golden wedding party at Potters Bar Golf Club such a success, we loved your playing it was just perfect and it was kind of you to learn our song requests especially ‘Cotton Eye Joe’ for us & our guests from America, it was a great rendition. We would certainly call on you to play for us again & recommend you to other people. Our guests also said nice things about your music. It was nice to have live music, I was also pleased that the volume was well regulated, so many functions have been spoilt by ever increasing volume.

With thanks...Mr & Mrs Bleetman, Southgate, North London.

Thank you again for coming to my rescue at the last minute to perform at our wedding, I think I discovered your website about a month and half before the wedding. The guests were impressed, some of them sing in Southgate Opera they know good music when they hear it.

Thank you for the email, for your playing and singing, and for the CD which I played Saturday and on Tuesday.

All the best,

Thank you so much for playing the music for our Golden Wedding at Hadlow Manor. It made a very special occasion absolutely perfect and we can't thank you enough.

The music you played was so appropriate and we enjoyed both the dancing and the background music you played at just the right moments.

Our guests all commented on how much they enjoyed your playing and singing and I have no doubt that you will be hearing from them when they have any forthcoming celebrations.

Thanks again

Just a very appreciative note for the wonderful entertainment you provided for our Golden Wedding Dinner at Offley Place. You played just the right music at the right time so that relatives, some of whom hadn't met up for some time, could chat in comfort, and then get up and dance to the music everyone loves!  It was also a pleasure to meet your wife and to learn that you are one of the great Barron Knights, and we hope to come and see you on stage  some time soon  Thanks again, Len, you helped make our special night such a memorable one for everyone.  Regards. Myrna and Derek Martin (Hexton Herts).

Dear Len,

Just a short overdue note to thank for your contribution in making our Ladies Night such a complete success. Every body we have spoken to thoroughly enjoyed your music and we have given your name & telephone number to a number of the guest for future reference.

We have written to the  Agent who supplied your details to say how pleased we were with your entertainment and also passed on your details to the Conference & Banqueting co-ordinator  at the Hotel as when we asked previously she had no one she could recommend. Hopefully this may bear fruit in the future.

Once again our sincere thanks.

Kind regards

Colin & Valerie.(Ladies Night at The Blakemore Hotel, Wymondley for Masonic Function)

Hi Len

Just a note to thank you very much for your entertainment & playing for us on the 22nd November at The La Concha Wine bar Letchworth.

It was unfortunate that as the wine bar is not very large it was difficult to accommodate all the people that had bought tickets and supported the function and we needed all the space available for seating especially when the food was served.

However everyone there enjoyed the evenings entertainment and we managed to raise in excess of £4000 for the Breast Cancer Charity – so thanks once again.
