This is a five star venue.... with the Mayor of the City as guest of honour. You can understand that a great deal of preparation goes into such an occasion and it's crucial that the music both for dinner and dancing is of the highest quality. Carla and her
boys certainly didn't disappoint! We have been organising this event for a number of years now and I'm delighted to tell you that we had the best evening yet.
Carla pitched the ambience and style perfectly; cool and laid back
tracks during the dinner and upping the tempo in her later set for dancing.We really were delighted and I'd be happy to recommend Carla & her band to anyone wanting a most professional - and thoroughly
enjoyable evening's entertainment. Kind regards,
- Ashley Jenkins Director John H Whitaker ( Tankers ) Limited

I wanted to drop you a quick line to say what a fantastic night you and the band made last night! And we have never seen the 400 or so people so happy. In no small part it was credit to your good selves, who judged the mood perfectly. It worked famously for you start with mellow, well known jazz standards and then ease in the more danceable songs. Thank you all so much and we hope to get in early to book you again next year. With kind regards,
- Ben Lippiett, Haslar Marina Manager
