Hi Jim and Band Members:

We so much enjoyed a wonderful evening, once again, and loved every song you performed; of course Blue Moon being our most favorite.

The blue's brother's songs Dave that you perform are better than the original group's songs....thanks so much and also

for the beautiful song Unchained Melody.

We look forward to next year's performance at St. Raphael and, Lord willing, we hope to get up on the dance floor.

God Bless all of you and again thanks so much for a fantastic performance.

Dick and Barb

My husband and I would like to thank you for the wonderful entertainment you provided for us last night at the Louis Schmidt Auditorium in Livonia.  I can't understand why you didn't have a packed house.  We have paid three and four times more for tickets to a show and haven't enjoyed it nearly as much as we enjoyed "A Musical Journey". 
 
Please put me on your list to receive (via email) information on upcoming concerts.  I hope there will be more in the Livonia, Plymouth area.  We'll be there.
 
Thanks again.
 
Sincerely,
 
Sharon Daguanno

Hi Nancy and The Classics,

Grant and I just got back from our honeymoon yesterday and I wanted to send you a quick message to say thank you for playing at our wedding.  We had the best time and you guys are so good!  Everyone loved your costume changes, music, etc!  Did you like our first dance?  How did we do??? 

Also, thank you so much for the beautiful picture frame.  We opened it at our brunch the following morning after the wedding.  That was so thoughtful of all of you. 

Well, thank you very much again!  Have a great weekend!

Sincerely,

Melissa and Grant

 

 

Nancy and The Classics,

Linda and I are glad that you had so much fun. It was a beautiful day with a fabulous band and an appreciative audience. What could be better than that? Everyone was so impressed with your group and many of us will be contacting you as the need arises (Weddings etc.).

We will be looking forward to hearing and seeing you again.

Rob & Lyn Carrier

Comments: Jim, Diane and The Classics Band

I always feel I don’t spend enough time with anyone at this Chili Cha Cha so I end up

apologizing to you again Diane!! It was so nice of your mom and dad to come Diane.

I hope that they had a good time.  How could they not when they had those great

entertainers who put on a fantastic show!

Pete told me he was so humbled that you allowed him to sing with the band.  He thought

the band was fantastic, like so many of the rest of the people who attended last night.

Pete loved singing being backed by such high caliber musicians.    And I know that you

produced such danceable music----I don’t remember the last time that Joe agreed to

dance with me!! Haha

Thank you again for suggesting The Classics Band.  The night was successful for the

Capuchin Soup Kitchen. I know they will be happy to have the funds to do their

important work.

Love from

Mary Beth and Joe

Jim and the Classics:

 
What an absolute wonderful time we had on Friday evening. Thank you so much for performing Blue Moon....it was terrific. Jim what a treat with you playing those drums and doing "Wipeout".  No one does it better than you.

Thank you to Dave and Nancy for the wonderful singing and the rest of the Band for their outstanding performances. We cannot wait until next year, as this is the last time we will be enjoying your music this year.

 
Thank you and God Bless You

Hello Classics Band!

 You played our wedding in Suttons Bay on Sept. 8th 2007 and I just wanted to send you a note to tell you … Wow!  Thank you so much!  You made our wedding so memorable and our family and friends can’t stop talking about how great and fun the band was.  We loved the music and atmosphere you created and from the bottom of my heart I want you to know how appreciative I am.

You’ll find this kind of funny – my parents had so much fun dancing at the wedding they’ve starting taking dancing classes.  Especially my Dad.  You have to understand that until the wedding I don’t think I’ve ever heard them break out from classical music.  The Classics Band changed them in a wonderful way. 

 It was a beautiful day and all of you made it so special for us.

The Classics played at a wedding I coordinated on September 8, 2007 in Northern Michigan. They sounded phenomenal and I think they did a fantastic job! The bride and groom were very happy and all night, I was being asked questions about them and told how great they sounded. I would recommend them anytime and I can't wait to hear them play again!!

Thank you again for making my birthday so special.

I just wanted to let you all know that the recent concert at Camp Dearborn on 9/4/05 was the greatest one I've seen by far and I've attended many. You could see that everyone was truly enjoying themselves and it was projected very well. Dave has been a great asset to the band as well as everyone else. What a great group! Hope to see you all again at St. Raphael's festival. Keep up the good work!

My friend and I caught your show last summer at the Marysville Music in the Park. Even though it was raining and you had to use a school auditorium instead of the outside bandshell, your performance was terrific. You brought so much enthusiasm and joy to everyone in that gym that evening, it really was a treat for us to have been there. We are so disappointed that you won't be in the St.Clair County area this summer. Hope to see you here again soon.

Hi: my wife and I enjoyed your performance immensely when you played at the Jackson MI Cascades Park for the July 4th fireworks show. YOU were almost as good as the fireworks display! Hope we can see you again soon. Your web site should tell us if you play during the winter months? Or is it just a few weekends in the warmer weather? Keep up the good work.
