Just wanted to say a massive thank you to all the band for such a fantastic evening last Saturday. I have never known so many people keep asking about the band and how brilliant they thought you all were. Amanda had a great birthday party; one that I am sure she will treasure for a long time.
We would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.
Thank you once again for everything you did; it made the evening very special J
havens thanks

I just wanted to let you know I have been receiving lots of complements on your behalf –  every one who attended thought the band was great – including me- I just thought I would share and ask you to pass on the message

Lisa (Scuba diving Club, St.Albans)

Just wanted to say a massive thanks for Saturday – thought it went really well and feedback from staff has been great. Thanks for all you did and for making it so easy for us – professional all the way!

On behalf of myself, Julie and the team would like to say a huge thank you to everyone in the Late Shift.  You guys, as usual were amazing.  You always get the dance floor packed out so thank you so much.

What a fantastic night! Thank u and the band so much for making it amazing! It really was the best day of my life. The Late Shift were great and everyone loved them! Thank u for all ur help and advice prior to the big day, also for ur lovely card thank u so much xx

I just wanted to say thank you again so much for Sunday night. I went for lunch the next day and everyone was saying how fantastic the band were! My bro and wife were singing your praises and mentioned how much they appreciated your flexibility as well!!

We thoroughly enjoyed having you along. As I said on the night it was a pleasure to work with you from start to finish and as well as us staff being impressed with your performance we received a number of compliments on your behalf from our guests, so thank you very much (James – Farleigh Hospice)

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to all at The Late Shift who came over to King’s Lynn in Norfolk to play at our Charity Ball. Colin in particular was a pleasure to deal with from when we first enquired up until the end of the night. I think it’s testemant to the band that from the very first song, the dancefloor was full, right up until the the end of the night when our guests donated over £150.00 to our charity just to hear one more song! I can honestly say that The Late Shift made our night and we will definitely have you back next year. The band helped us to raise the fantastic amount of £5,695.30 for Scotty’s Little Soldiers. Once again thank you and hopefully we’ll see you all soon. Brendan

Can you pass on our thanks to all the band for a fantastic night. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  Many thanks  Wendy

I just thought I would drop a line to say thank you for a great performance at our wedding. We’ve had so many of our friends compliment us on our choice of band. I appreciate you guys had to come straight from another gig from the previous evening, and I was very impressed with the 2 songs you learnt for us.

Just wanted to drop you a line to say, thanks and what a great night it was on Saturday.  I think I can comment on behalf of everyone, certainly everyone that I actually spoke to on the night, who all said without exception, what a great band you are.

A great gig set and clearly by the fact that everyone was dancing shows what a great night it was. I captured a few shots which I thought I’d share with you.  The rest, especially of Kev who made the booking with you, are far too incriminating 🙂

Hope to see you perform again soon,  and if not before, perhaps at our next years Summer Dance. Thanks for making it a brilliant night!

Thanks again for such a great night. Everyone loved you. My relatives in their 80’s through to all of my friends are still talking about how great you all were. It’s a shame you couldn’t play your set as loudly as you wanted but I thought it was fantastic anyway. I was surprised by the love for Tina Turner!! You really made the night, thanks. Jen

Aaahhhhhhhh such a good night, thank you so much for the fab entertainment, you guys know how to throw a good party. I was honoured to be able to share it with you all. x

Please don’t split up because it’s my 50th birthday in 4 years time and I want you guys to play at my party.

A great big thank you to you all for the fantastic show that you put on for us on Sunday night at the Dog & Partridge. All my staff really enjoyed it and I know will be talking about it for ages. Thanks once again to you all.

Just a quick thank you for Saturday night. I hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did and we look forward to Ramsgate Week.

What a great weekend, George and Mark thought that it was so much better than expected, everyone had a great time, your band is abso-bloody-lutely fantastic and I cant wait to see you again

I wanted to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to you and the rest of ‘The Late Shift’ for helping to make ‘Rock For Havens Sake’ on Easter Sunday such a great success. You will be delighted to know that we raised the wonderful sum of £3523.86, a brilliant result! Your set was clearly enjoyed by everyone there who seemed to be having a fantastic time. We were really pleased with the turn out – especially as the weather was so dodgy earlier in the day! This money will go directly to support the amazing work that Havens Hospices does for the local community, and will particularly support our adult Hospice, Fair Havens. As you know, Fair Havens has had a tough time financially over the past year which is why this money is so vital and gratefully received. The great news is that thanks to the support of you guys and individuals and businesses in the local community, it looks as though we will not have to reduce or cut services in the short term which we were threatened with just a few weeks ago. Could you kindly pass on my appreciation on behalf of Havens Hospices to the other members of the band. Cheers! Peter Hall Volunteer Services Co-ordinator, Havens Hospices

Just to say a huge thanks to you all for a fantastic gig on Easter Sunday on behalf of Havens Hospices. You wil be pleased to know that in the region of £3,000 was raised and we couldn’t have done it without your support (and fantastic music of course). Once again sincerest thanks and best regards Anne, Event Coordinator, Rock for Havens Sake Music Festival 2008

Just a word of thanks to the lads and lass of the band, for all their hard work on Friday evening. Saxon Hall provided a great backdrop to the main focus of the evening, but as the focus, the band enabled us all to do what we do best – drink too much and throw ourselves round a dance floor to some superb music; not to mention fulfilling numerous dreams as wannabe backing vocalists! Just won’t ever understand why people choose to go for recorded music when there are bands like The Late Shift around. I hope to renew our acquaintance soon. (Wilf, The Rotary Club)

I would like to say a massive thank you to you all for playing your part in truly making the “Simon Stewart Fundraising Ball” an absolutely fabulous event. You guys were amazing, hit after hit after hit, the dance floor was packed from start to finish. You made the event, you made the night, and we will certainly be having you back for next years event. I have had many a fantastic complement about the night as a whole, and would just like to thank you guys once again for being a part of it. It truly was our pleasure to have u playing down in Kent. Hope to see you all very soon. Many Thanks. Geoff, Simon, Gemma. (Simon Stewart Fundraising Ball)

Thanks so much for putting the finishing touches to a great wedding day for my daughter and new son in law! Every one said the band were great. Will be in touch with next years ball date. Thanks again, Jo

Wow! I had not seen The Late Shift before the wedding gig. Y’all were amazing!  So accomplished, polished and with an ace repertoire of classics and up the minute tunes. (Loved “I predict a riot”) Keep on rockin’. Looking forward to the next time (Chris)

A note to say a very big thanks for all you and the Band did on Saturday evening , everyone enjoyed themselves and even a few have said when is the next one! I am not sure if you heard that we have raised over £9000 and expect the figure to exceed £10k, which is 2.5 times more than we had ever expected.

Would you forward this email to all the band and Dave, and say a special thanks to them all and that comes from Barbara, Paul, Tracey and a very, very, very special thanks from Alfie.

Thank you for playing at our wedding on Friday. Eveyone really enjoyed themselves (Jamie and Carmen).

Just to say, thanks so much for doing the gig on Friday. I know from experience that it’s not often that people will do something for nothing, so your generous input was much appreciated. (Lynn, Community Fundraiser, Richard House)

I would like to say a very big thank you to all of you for giving us such a fantastic night. Your music was fabulous and we will certainly be keen to support you at future events! (Louise)

Wow, you were incredible! – Particularly appreciative lady who will remain nameless

Well done for the gig at the Bury Club…great music great singing……really good of you all to entertain us…as a biggish club we would be happy to come and watch you at gigs so feel free to promote your band to Barking Road Runners (Steve)

Thank you for providing such an enjoyable and professional event on Saturday. (Dave Quinney, Ramsden Heath Social Club)

What a night, thanks to The Late Shift. It made for the best birthday I’ve ever had. The band got lots of praise and said how professional you all were. Thanks again. (Pete and Linda)

We had a very successful awards evening at Twickenham Stadium, a massive thanks to you all for making it such a great evening (Sula, Reed Exhibitions).

Many of those attending our dinner had not met before and The Late Shift helped make the event a great success. (Hazel, Axa Insurance).

Keep rocking you wonderful people!  (Lisa)

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I heard a band had been booked. I can only say the whole evening was brilliant and the band was fantastic.
