Hi Tony –
The party was great!  We thoroughly enjoyed the music and the band was terrific!
We thanked them very much.  Everyone commented on their performance.  Lovely band.
We will definitely recommend them and your company again.
It was a pleasure dealing with you all.
Many thanks

Dear Tony,
We would like to say a big thank you to you for all of your help and correspondance with organising the evening entertainment for our wedding day at The Springs Hotel. Being our first marriage your knowledge and advice was greatly needed and very much appreciated! As was your constant communication and quick responses to all our questions!
DJ Barrie, who provided the nights entertainment, was fantastic! He played the perfect mix of music and added our requests smoothly into his playlist, generating a fun and party atmosphere all round. DJ Barrie was very much a genuine and nice guy, who really got into the spirit of the evening.
We will be recommending, and already have recomended, Black Cat and DJ barrie to all of our friends for upcoming events. We could not have asked for a better, stress free experience. Thank you very much.
Best wishes,
Jason & Laura


just wanted to thank you for the great service you provided us. Our wedding day went so well and that is in part due to your help over the last few months. Your help in choosing the bands and dropping stuff off to
our house made the process a lot more stress free.

The D’Aranyi String Quartet were great and they sounded great in the different rooms in the Asmolean.

As for the The Stone Saloon, they were fantastic. They played the perfect mix of songs and got everyone on the dance floor. Given the late start we really appreciated the fact they played through with no break. The guys were
really nice too and can’t recommend them enough. Everyone commented how great they were. We’d really like a copy of their album as a momento, so could you ask them to send us a signed copy if possible. They were going to give us one on the night but I don’t think they had any in their van.
Many thanks again,
Chris and Philippa Hoy


Saturday night was fantastic, thank you. Your recommendation was great, and the band was outstanding! Please pass on my sincere thanks to them all, and thank you too for sorting out arguably the most important part of the evening!
I will have no hesitation in recommending the band or Black Cat to anyone, and will come back to you as soon as we have a date for next years do, I’m done with trying to source bands myself!
Well done, and thank you all.
Best regards

Hi Tony

Can you pass our thanks on to The Summits.

We all enjoyed them at our do on Saturday.
I received many congratulations for choosing them so feeling guilty at accepting praise for something I had not done, can I thank you for your help and again please pass on our thanks to the Summits


Hi Tony,

I just wanted to a say a huge thank you for recommending brass root for my wedding on the 3rd of October.
They were amazing and all our guests had a great time. Can you please send on my thanks to the band?

Thanks again,


Hi Tony,

Just wanted to say thanks to you! Life and Soul got the dance floor full in minutes, it was lovely to see.
The members of the band were really friendly and accommodating. I hope the Drummer has recovered, how committed is he to still turn up after a crash. Very impressive.
I must also mention the sound guy who was just fantastic, sooooo very
helpful. He made a real difference to my evening!

Thanks to all!

“Our thanks to you all for your part in a wonderful wedding reception on August 20th. The music more than lived up to our hopes and the bride was particularly frustrated that people kept stopping her dancing to chat!. Thank you for setting up so discreetly, for patiently meeting our various needs and for performing with such energy and professionalism.

With best wishes

Carl and Elizabeth Laferton”

“Hi Tony

Just a note to say what a fantastic job Karen did for Sam and Sadie’s engagement party. She rose to the challenge of delivering music for not only a very wide age group, but also to very diverse tastes in music. I understand that she introduced herself to the young couple and offered to play any requests they might have, which indeed she did. All in all a fantastic time was had by all of us and our guests and we received many compliments on the evening. A big thank you to Black Cat Promotions and also to Karen for a wonderful disco. We also look forward to another Black Cat disco at Sam and Sadie’s wedding reception on 20th December 2008.

Many thanks

Mandy and Mark Harper”

“Dear Barry and Tony

Just a quick note from our honeymoon (we move house a week after we get back so things may be a little hectic!) to say thanks so much for the music at our wedding. To you Tony for organising it all and of course you Barry for being such a great DJ. We had so many comments on the music and the best sign of all; a constantly full dance floor (when you got a chance to play!) Thanks again so much. I will pass on your details whenever I can.

Kindest regards


“Dear Tony

Just to say a huge thank you for all the help over our party on Saturday. It was an enormous success as you saw and you certainly had a big input into it all. All my panics about the band were quite unfounded and they were amazing, as you quite rightly predicted they kept the dance floor full! Please pass on our thanks .I felt terrible that I didn’t have a conversation with the jazz band as I was in such a nervous state when they arrived and then became so preoccupied with guests arriving, however they were tremendous and even though we were rather squashed in that part of the marquee, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their playing. Please will you pass on my heartfelt thanks and also my apologies for being so rude to them all, as I didn’t thank any of them on the night. The disco kept us all dancing into the small hours, which was just as I wanted it and we all loved every minute of it, certainly Longworth hasn’t seen a party like that for a long while. Once again many many thanks for all your calm guidance and I will certainly recommend your help to anyone I know. In fact I have already done so.

Kind regards

Emma de Haan”

“To Tony

Thank you for organising the New Originals and disco for our wedding. The band were truly amazing and well exceeded our expectations. We had a fantastic party.


Mark and Nicola”

“To the Phoney Beatles

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding on 2nd September. Everyone who was there said how amazing you were. The music was incredible and the costumes fantastic. We wish we could have stayed until the end! We will definitely recommend you to everyone we know!

Thank you again.

Andrew and Emma Taylor”

“Hi Tony,

George and I just wanted to thank you all for making the evening reception so memorable. Everyone enjoyed themselves so much. If I could go back and relive it all, I would. Friends from Oxford were at the evening reception and when they realised who the band were, they couldn’t believe it. Needless to say they made the most of it and danced all night. My dad didn’t realise they had started playing, they were so good, he thought the disco was still on. Unfortunately George spent more time socialising than he would have liked and so didn’t get to see all the band’s performance. I danced all night so didn’t miss a thing! Are the band planning on playing any pubs in the Oxford area as George would really like to see them properly. It’s also a really good excuse to meet up with friends in the area! If you could let us know of any up and coming gigs, so we can relive the wedding, that would be great!

Once again thanks for your help with the organising.


Gillian and George”


Just a line to thank you for sorting the music for my birthday party. In all went off very well & my guests were very complimentary about both the band & disco, have forwarded your details on to quite a few of them!
