--------------QUOTES AND FEEDBACK ---------------

WEDDINGS & PARTIES
Just a short note to thank you all for the super music at our Party on the 2nd May at the West Brighton Club. Everything on the day was just perfect for what was one of the happiest days of our lives. Everyone has commented on the excellence and appropriateness of your music, and its contribution in making it a celebration of family joy and warmth. Regards Tony Avery

A special thanks to you and all of the other Continental for the fantastic music at Stephen and Francesca's wedding last night! Sarah Berg

I just wanted to say thanks again for your great music on Saturday. The day
was a great success and your music was an integral part of it with many guests
commenting on how great it was. Once again many thanks. Cheers Anna & John

Thank you so very much to you, Ernie and Jo for a wonderful evening of music for my birthday. European Café music is a favourite of ours and the vitality and warmth of you rendition made the evening very special. Hopefully one day we’ll hear you perform again. Best wishes in all you endeavours. Lana Malakunas.

FESTIVALS
Thank you and congratulations on your great performance at the Champagne Breakfast and on the Cottage Stage at Moonee Valley Festivals’ Queens Park Sunday. The style of music you played really suited the audience and venue, creating a very sunny outdoor café atmosphere!

Please pass on my well wishes to the other members of the Continental Trio I look forward to working with you again in the future.
Yours sincerely, Patricia Keeenan (co-ordinator) 2004 Moonee Valley Festival

EVENTS
I and a whole host of people would be delighted to act as referres for the band. Everyone I have spoken to thought you were fantastic and perfect for the event. The range of instruments was great and having the voilin and accordian was particularly evocative and really created the mood we wanted . As the organizer I found the bands professionalism and incredibly cooperative spirit an enourmous advantage.
Suzanne Heywood, Telstra Function, Melbourne University

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for helping organise entertainment for the Science Centenary Dinner last Thursday night - Continental were all wonderful. I have received wonderful feedback from guests about the entertainment - they were a
lot of fun. Please pass on my thanks to them. Marie Kellett

PUBLIC SHOW
Hi Ernie, I'd like to know more about...I saw Continental at Ruckers late July and really enjoyed the music. I would like to know if and when the band will put out a CD - hopefully it will include the guest appearance from your ABC friend (his Tango). Regards Will.
