Dear Mike,

When I heard about you, a jazz, Rat Pack and soul band made up from former AGS and AHS pupils, I just knew you were perfect for our Ball to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Aylesbury High School. Now we are here on Monday after the Ball, I have to tell you how many people have contacted me to let me know how WONDERFUL Down for the Count were.

You were professional, smart and above all flexible! You changed from a jazz quintet to greet our guests as they sipped champagne, to the full function band to dance to after the dinner. And dance! I have never seen a dance floor more packed for the whole evening. Everyone loved dancing to the Rat Pack set – so sophisticated! The soul set was perfect to dance to the end of the evening.

You may have heard that no-one was prepared to let you off the stage – the “encores” could be heard in the next county! So a very big thank you from us all at AHS – you made the evening.
