Testimonials

I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help with finding us the perfect band for our reception in Shiner. When we got to the reception two couples came up to us and said that London Calling played at their wedding and that they were awesome. They were right. The band rocked all night and all of our friends and family had a blast. My husbands 90 year old grandmother stayed to the very end and even though she was in a wheel chair she managed to never leave the dance floor.

Cecilio was so nice and he made sure that I had nothing to worry about. All of the members of the band were so friendly and fun.

Again, thank you for all of your help and feel free to use me as a reference any time.

Hey Cecilio/London Calling,

It's been a while since you guys played our gig (we just got back from our honeymoon in australia, which was awesome, but kept us out of touch with everyone), but Dana and I just wanted to let you guys know that not only did we think you guys did an awesome job -everything from song selection and mixing the music up, to the quality of the sound and performance, but we have also recieved numerous compliments from guests specifically saying how much they enjoyed y'alls performance and how the dance floor was always movin' and shakin'. Everyone we've talked to has said that they can't remember ever having as much fun at any other wedding they've been to and a great deal of that is obviously because you guys kept them entertained.

We thank you very much and are very grateful to Gentry for having introduced us to you and having got to meet you and the band to do our wedding. If there's anything we can do to help pass the word along (on a website or whatever), please let us know.

Take care and best,

Mike & Dana


Gentry,

We booked London Calling from you for our daughter's March 29 wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin. I wanted to let you know that you really came through once again! London Calling was wonderful. Everything they played was marvelous and almost everyone made a positive comment about the professionalism and quality of the entertainment. I think they made the reception the fantastic party that it was. Please let the band know how pleased we were. We didn't have a chance to talk with them at the end. Thanks again for all your help!

Sincerely,
Jason Miller
