Good afternoon Rafik!

I wanted to send you a huge "THANK YOU" to you and your other band members! It was a pleasure working with you. The dance floor was full and everyone was dancing! I know Stephen and Dorota were very happy to have Dance Knights be a part of their wedding. I look forward to working with you again. In the meantime, I hope you have a wonderful and happy wedding season! Cheers!

Hi Rafik,

I can't tell you how much we loved the music and entertainment that you and your talented band provided our guests the night of our reception.  And I absolutely loved the David Bowie and Duran Duran songs that you played especially for us!  I love to dance and I'm glad that we were able to avoid having a dead dance floor. Be sure to let us know if you ever need a recommendation!  We were especially happy with your 2 singers, Ruth and Marcel, they were both excellent. Kind regards.
Beverly and Tim




You were the best thing that ever happened to our wedding! We were just reminiscing about our wedding night and thinking about how your band sang our difficult wedding song perfectly, along with everything else! People started dancing before the first course! We were so lucky to find you and your talented group of musicians. Since our wedding, we've had nothing but compliments about the "AWESOME" music. We were so impressed with your professionalism and how well you were able to accommodate our plans. Thank you, thank you, thank  you! I have already...and will always recommend your band as "the wedding band" or the BEST Party band you will ever hire! Thank you for making the most special day we've experienced, even more special than I could ever imagined! It was your band that made our night! Always in our memories.

Hi Rafik,
