Clare & Mike

Hi Toni, Mike and I would like to thank you so very much for performing at our wedding reception at Arley Hall on Saturday 16th April. You must hear this all of the time, but the day was, without doubt, the best day of both our lives so far and the part that you and the band played in this was enormous. Your complete professionalism and charisma, and that of your band, as well as the amazing atmosphere you created was absolutely perfect for the best party of our lives. One of my only regrets was that I perhaps partied to much and only went outside to the courtyard a handful of times throughout the evening to speak to people... Oh dear! The band too were fantastic, please pass on our sincere thanks to them too. You have a great voice and the most amazing charisma as a performer(so many people have commented on this) which is complimented by your band who are clearly talented musicians in their own right. Throughout our wedding planning we obviously met a lot of people and to be honest you were one of the most professional and friendly people we dealt with. Having discussed our preferences beforehand, we completely trusted that everything would be as we had wanted it, when it came to the 16th of April and its exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much again, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to friends and wish you all the very best in the future both professional and on a personal level. Best Wishes, Clare and Mike Kelly April 16th at Arley Hall

Hi Toni, I'm sorry I've not been in touch sooner. As soon as we got married we were inundated with visits from family, and then very sadly our cat died leaving us feeling very low after such a great high. It's only now we're starting to relive the wonderful memories of our wedding day. You and your band did an absolutely sterling job. Your professionalism and interaction with our guests was second to none and we've had a great number of compliments about you from our friends and family. Thank you so much! Could you remind me of you address so we can put a thank you card in the post? Fran and Joe

‘Toni James and her very talented group of musicians provide a feast of musical styles which are guaranteed to make you either sit up and listen or simply make you want to dance. Toni has one of the best female vocals around, a voice which is so adaptable that it can easily change from softly sung ballads to indie,pop and jazz. When you are looking for a quality performer whose music will suit different generations then the Toni James Band is certainly an act which cannot be overlooked’ Sharon Stanton On Behalf of the Wirral Investment Network

Hi Toni The band totally made the night and my dad could talk of nothing else the next day. Nearly everyone I spoke to remarked on how good you all were and it was great to have a mix of old and new tracks to get everyone up dancing at some stage in the night. It was also nice to see such an energetic and lively band, who so obviously love what they do for a living. Thanks ever so much for making the long journey for us - I'll definitely be in touch again should the need arise and will be recommending you to others.

Cat & Daz

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the band for the most amazing sets on the night. We had a brilliant time. From the minute you guys started playing, the dance floor was full. Even my 68 yr old uncle was up and dancing for most of both sets (and the boys all loved you ;-)). We’re so glad that you were able to play. We heard you guys a couple of years ago at Bentley, so when we decided to get married there was no question that we would try to get hold of you to play. Dazzla absolutely loved his little time to shine in American Boy so thanks for letting him get up and do that with you. He says he made up most of the words having had a skinful by then but it made for some fab video footage. Very funny. Mr Brightside (one of my all time favourite songs) was an absolute hit – well it was all a hit. We bloomin loved it. Anyway since I’m gushing a bit I’ll leave it here but thanks for again for a brillo night. Take care Cat & Daz xxx Feb 09 Sandhole Oak Barn, Conleton

Caroline Harding

The Toni James Band played at our Repton School Leavers' Ball on Saturday 28th June 2008. They were fantastic, there is no other word for them. Very obliging, funny, entertaining, patient and played just the right kind of music to suit 17-70 year olds. The Headmaster said in his letter of thanks that the evening was, 'outstanding and a tremendous success', the band certainly contributed to that greatly. Please thank them for me and I will certainly pass on their name to the many people that have already asked for it. With thanks again and kind regards Caroline Harding

Howie- Marquee

Admittedly a belated response on our our part however here's our important positive feedback. Band arrived bang on time - punctual. Band appreciated that our changing room area leading directly onto the playing area had blown down the night before. They coped with the lack of changing area yet were still impeccably dressed. The second set went down an absolute storm! - I never new Dolly Parton would get such a massive reaction from the party. 2 Encore songs to finish the set - brilliant. Did not even hesitate over the cost versus value for money- particularly with the distances travelled. Guests were all raving for the band and said it was a monumental and magical finish to the day.
