Dear Richard:

I cannot relate in words what wonderful accolades we received from all of our guests for such a festive mood and wonderfully staged program for celebration. The bride and groom both remarked to me afterwards that "Mr. Olsen really had everyone off their seats for the whole evening! And that is the purpose of this acknowledgment - not only did you deliver a superb program from the dinner music to the quite festive ending, you performed with such professionalism.

Thank you for being patient with us and guiding us through the music selection and instrumentation. You treated us professionally form the very first phone call. And by the way, the manner in which you returned all calls so promptly and dealt with us so professionally at every step of the way, gave us every reason early on to book your services.

We look forward to recommending you to many of our family and acquaintances and would certainly call on you again. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a professional job well done!

Dear Richard:

You certainly hit all the right notes. Both at the event and afterwards we have heard nothing but raves for your music. You were able to appeal to all age groups - from Heather's grandparents, in their 80's, through the friends and contemporaries of Sandy and me, and certainly to Heather and Stan and the rest of the young set.

You also got great revues from some of the staff of the Peninsula Golf and Country Club, who arrange a lot of events and hear a lot of musicians.

Your pacing of the evening was wonderful, setting the right tone with the dinner music and moving along to the dancing with the tempo stepping up as the evening moved along.

Please accept our compliments and sincere thanks to you and your lively and professional ensemble.

Dear Richard:

Alice and I personally thank you for your contribution to the success of Marissa and Ned's wedding reception at the Menlo Circus Club.

The matchless performance of you and your group was an essential ingredient to the total ambiance of a memorable evening. Your attention to the timing of events was reassuring to us and others who participated in the toasts and special dances. Your selection of music was enjoyed by all - even those sitting back listening.

During the course of the evening and in the days following, we received many compliments on the totality of the evening's presentation.

A staff member of 30 years standing at the Club said your performance was unparalleled.

Thank you for a "story book" memory.

Bob and Alice Sprague

P.S. We look forward to hearing of your "public" performances, such as your appearance at Vertigo last New Year's Eve. Perhaps then, Alice and I will have the opportunity to dance the night away.
