"Hi Guys, Just wanted to say thanks for the great tunes on your new CD. We try and see you every time we're in Atlanta. Always makes us feel great to hear you. I could listen to your arrangement of Harlem Shuffle all night long. Hope to see you soon. David & Mara Valdosta, Ga."

 "I have been buying your cd and sending it to friends around the country. You now have fans in every region of the US. We are all waiting anxiously for your next effort. Look forward to seeing you guys again soon. Phil"

"Just back in the UK from a great vacation in "the south". The best music of the whole trip (including New Orleans) was Wednesday night at the Tin Roof Cantina. Thanks to all the band for coming to talk to us. To anyone from the UK, or wherever, make a point of being in Atlanta on Wednesday night and get to hear the best music going. Thanks again Steve from Brian and Sheila Hills (John Scriven's friends from England)- We'll be back!"

"I came across your web site by accident actually! I was pleasantly surprised when I listened to your audio clips! You guys sound great!!! I intend to purchase your cd very soon. I just wanted to let you guys know what I thought! I know it's always appreciated when someone you don't know compliments your talents!!! Keep up the good work! Stay positive & always smile :) Signed.....a new fan, Lisa"
